First I want to give major props to Gina and the rest of the absolutely amazing team that put together Yearly Kos ’07.  The immense amount of work you guys and gals put in was truly awe inspiring.  

Now, to the future... Obviously one of the first choices about next year that will need to be made will be location.  There will be in the coming weeks the now institutionalized annual flame war about my region or your region, but let me get the flames flying by arguing not for my region, but a return to Vegas.  

Now I am an East Coaster, but I am not going to argue for an East Coast city because Vegas has something no convention center facility has:

All you can eat pancakes at 4am.

All you can eat pancakes at 4am is a symbol of what Vegas has to offer.  In most cities the convention center is a mini city off to itself, but dead at late night times.  In Vegas the party and thus the facilities never sleeps.  You can find fun, drink, and food at all hours.  There are plenty of venues for politicians and organizations can throw parties in the more happening less sterile environment than the limited options at convention centers.  

As Markos points out, we drained the convention center bar dry.  A return to Vegas will provide us more options than offered at a convention center.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
