Vegas during World Series of Poker

So, I'll be in the U.S. next week, and I'll have a free weekend, during which I'm probably heading to Las Vegas, so I'd like to: 1) See the WSOP Main Event, from the rails if possible. Is it possible? Must I get tickets or something? 2) Play some cheap (up to $75) tournaments, Texas Hold'em or Omaha Hi/Lo split. 3) Check out the nightlife, specially bars where I can have a couple of drinks and see some nice girls (hey, poker is not everything!) Any recommendations? I'm specially concerned about hotel prices, and not being allowed to the Main Event as an spectator.

Travel to Dublin

Next month, I am going on a trip to Dublin for a week. I have three questions for anyone who has experience with the city:
  1. Where would you recommend staying? (Hostels in the £10 / night range are my usual style.)
  2. What would you recommend seeing? (There is an AskMeFi post on this already, but it only covers a weekend-length stay)
  3. Is there anything particularly useful to know about going to Dublin?

Online travel map

I want to create a map, marking every town I've ever been to on my travels around Australia and the world. I have a pin-board at home where I've done this, but it would be cool to create an online version. In this Web 2.oh world, what's the best Google Maps hack to use to achieve this? Note that I don't want to write the code to do this through the API myself - I'm just looking for a site that lets me easily place markers on my own personal Google Map, and associate some very basic information with each marker.
