  • BSidesLV Schedule: The official schedule from the BSidesLV website…
  • BSidesLV: Online and offline calendar for the iPhone… Not only do they have BSidesLV but also Blackhat, Defcon, and Passwords. I basically use this every year. Thanks to @darthnull for maintaining.


Pulled this from our  BSidesLV/Defcon Travel Guide post but it’s pretty much the same thing…

  • Wednesday – Thursday (8AM – 8 PM): Two shuttles will be running, one between Caesars and the Tuscany and another one between the Rio and Tuscany. At the Tuscany the shuttle picks up/drops off at the casino entrance. The Rio location is near the Defcon conference entrance. At Caesars head on over near Planet Hollywood’s entrance.
  • Thursday (10PM-4AM): One shuttle will run between the Rio and Tuscany for the Thursday night party.

Lunch/Dinner Options

Pulled this from our  BSidesLV/Defcon Travel Guide post but it’s pretty much the same thing… Overall, the onsite restaurants are a pretty good value.

  • Tuscany Gardens: A decent Italian place that I’ve heard good things about so far. I’ll update this after I try it out.
  • Marilyn’s Café: I’ve eaten here three times so far… Open 24 hours day it’s an excellent place to grab a bite to eat any time of the day. And between midnight and 5:00 am, they offer $5 breakfasts.
  • The Cantina: Try their Taco Salad … excellent.
  • Beachfront Coffee: I’m a big fan of ice coffee and I haven’t been disappointed yet. At $2.50 a pop, I’m saving a buck or so versus the Starbucks down the street.

Party Calendar

This is mainly for Defcon and Blackhat however all the relevant BSides parties are included as well.
