The price gouging on food, drinks, shows and swimming pools seems very high to me. If that is typical of the Strip, I will stay away.

How did you happen to score VGK tickets during the playoffs?

Are you a valued casino customer like MDawg?
I don't know everything but I know a lot.

I’m so valued I accumulated $12 in comps via my gambling! I have one friend who has SIX season tickets. He invited me and my wife. I have another friend who has the normal two for him and his wife. The friend who has two told me the face value for the seats I was in was $600 a ticket. More than double that on secondary market.

Yes, that is the new now. Everything is very expensive. Not much value for typical tourists. To me it is like taking a family to Disney World. Everything is expensive but you know that going in. Some people will stay at the Magic Kingdom for very expensive rates and others will stay at the Best Western for only $100 a night. Some people will spend $500 for dinner for the family and others will eat at a chain restaurant for under $100.

Buffet not open. Had dinner at Hexx one night.


Didn't you get the memo? I thought we were supposed to boycott places like Hexx that tack on a "concession fee" (in this case, 4.85%) hidden in the fine print of the menus.

I could be wrong, but I don’t think there was a ‘concession fee’. Pretty sure. Dinner was ‘cheap’ in that it was restaurant week. Before the up charges I think it was only $30 per person. No alcohol that meal so I think we kept it under $100. A miracle.

Natives to Vegas say you get used to the heat and other natives to Vegas say they are lying, you never get used to it. I heard an old guy in Singapore say the same thing that you never get used to the humidity if you live to be a hundred.
