Prices are good in the restaurant for sure. I can't get past the stench to have an appetite there though. Also wouldnt feel comfortable with more than $30 in my wallet there.

OK, you're being a bit dramatic there.

I have yet to be in a casino that I felt unsafe with money.

It's just some of the parking lots you have to worry about.

I'm either brave, lucky or stupid. Perhaps some of each.
I used to live in some really bad areas and go to some shady bars and I was on foot.

I lived on 1st street just down from the queen of hearts I walked 2 miles to work.

I lived near twain and Swenson (Katie arms apt's) walked to work and Quetopia

I lived on 13th and Maryland Pkwy. Short walk to work.

I lived in the Naked city walked to work and the Hard hat bar for pool. (last pocket only, if you know what I mean?)

I lived on west Trop near King 8.

I lived at 4 or 5 harbor islands

and a few other places all while on foot or bike.

Sh*t, I moved around a lot between 18 and 22.

I did get into some trouble at the Cue Club a few times, however, that was my fault and definitely could've been avoided.

Years ago while on a progressive and double Royal promo at a nice bar in Green Valley that catered to well-off people. The regulars all knew each other and many of them were neighbors and family members. They were so pissed off that we locked up the 2 really high progressive machines(and were getting double).
for 2 days they would do dumb sh*t like bump your chair, spill crap near you, stand behind you and make smart ass comments. They got bold and a couple of them threatened to rob us and take the money if we hit it. I mostly thought it was drunken intimidation tactics just trying to get their machines back.
However, when I hit it I was somewhat concerned getting to my car. United coin was there so I did walk out with them to my car.

I hit a Royal at Longhorn and after finally getting paid (pretty sure they had to go to bank to get cash), security told me to get out or it could get ugly because locals n stuff. So I left, and he told me if I'm being followed to call 911, decent chance of that happening.....and if I end up getting killed or some shit, that means he's gotta do a lot of paperwork, and he doesn't feel like doing paperwork.

Ah, good times.

Harbor Island is definitely rough. I dated a woman there many years ago and her neighbor was shot right next door.

Some day you will have to tell me which bar in Green Valley this was at. I have lived there for 25 years and I know most of those bars pretty well and only have one guess.

The coffee shop is too small, and you're just a few feet from the crowds waiting for your table when it's busy.

The 50ish, male, caucasian blackjack dealer with grey hair is not friendly.

Longhorn has received prior mention for its comp system and BJ rules, cheap eats, etc. This forum should perhaps remember that updating casino reviews is important. Ofcourse avoiding stray bullets is important too.

No one here is going to book a room at the Venetian but play at the longorn unless they go slumming with a bunch of black-tie and evening-gown friends.

Still...your airplane ticket says Vegas, your spouse may say 'The Strip' but being reminded of what else is available from time to time is important.

Maybe Aunt Dottie should do a turn at the airport arrivals area to remind people of alternatives.

The irony is that most visitors to Las Vegas never step foot in Las Vegas. They stay in Paradise and play in Paradise, then go home and talk about Las Vegas.

This place, when it first went to TITO had the machines lock up JUST TO CASH OUT.

Just random memory item.
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?
