A quick taste of the tunnels under Vegas

There are inhabited storm drainage tunnels under Sin City

LAS VEGAS--I just got back from a tour of the storm drainage tunnels under Las Vegas. I was given the tour by Matt O'Brien, whose recent book, Beneath the Neon: Life and Death in the Tunnel of Las Vegas, chronicles his experiences there.

I will put up a full story and photo gallery later, but I thought it would be good to post a little taste now to whet your appetite.

Enjoy, and make sure your shoes are sturdy and dry.
