Interesting they're still keeping all the lights on. I wonder if it's somehow safer and more efficient to just leave them on the whole time versus turning them off and spinning them up again after sitting there for months.

But I guess they're probably just leaving them on because "Vegas, Baby...."

The night one is kind of eerie. All it needs is Charlton Heston driving down the road in a red convertible.
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?

Thanks for all the comments. It would have been even more eerie had I done it later. 9:00 PM on a Saturday night was comparatively busy.

As to the lights, some kept on a minimum of lights to get around like the Flamingo and some were almost all the way dark, like the Cosmopolitan.

I liked how many casinos turned on the lights in certain rooms to make a heart or spell out something like "Vegas Strong."
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I think you're Las Vegas strip videos have been some of the better ones. I have shared them a few times and they've gotten some good feedback.

I golfed yesterday and the day before. I got interviewed by our local TV station about golf and coronavirus restrictions. I'm the unshaven bald guy.

I golfed on Sunday and the course took a picture of our foursome standing on the tee box while standing six feet apart. They said they were going to put it on their Facebook page.
