The older casinos were more fun, weren't they?

Well, I have to say that just about none of this report leaves me feeling compelled to visit Vega$ again ever in this lifetime. The one time I went (under duress) must have been in the mid-90's or so. It was certainly interesting. Made for some excellent (though quite often sad) people watching. I will never forget the sight of a totally wasted bride, in full gown, being trailed by a distraught-looking attendant of some sort, screaming her way through one of the casinos looking for "that bastard!"..."Where the hell is he? I swear I'm going to kill him..." My prediction is that she and her beloved just might no longer be a couple. I've heard there's some interesting art in a few places. Probably still also some memorable people watching. But, enough reason to go back? Hmm...

PS: I'm picking "Anonymous" only because I have no clue about the other choices. It's me, Lyle. Mommoose :-)

Hello Mommoose! I'm glad you said, because I couldn't tell from the comment who you were! :-) Yes, it's probably a bit expensive these days if you're just going for people watching. I'm sure it's great if you like playing cards or betting in general but I don't.
