    How do you explain the 70s without saying a word?  Like @pixvegas777 does with this week’s winner.  A postcard that captures the Stardust in all her mobbed up glory.  There are always people who mourn the loss of a Vegas property but I think it goes beyond that with the Stardust.  The closing of the Stardust was one of the biggest mistakes in Las Vegas history.  And what is replacing it isn’t going to be better than what Stardust was.  It will be more expensive and fancy but not better than the strip with the Stardust.  Thankfully much of her glory is still alive today at the Neon Boneyard.

    It’s like a reset button.  No matter how things were at the tables the previous day, as the sunrises so does opportunity, oblivious to the past.  The mind begins to plot out your new day and the excitement returns as soon as you are conscious.  Moving from one property to another, a warm glow caresses the skin while the air is still fresh and crisp.  @davidcharnsshares ethereal imagery, infinite possibility; Las Vegas.  Simply said, complex to define.

    The Dunes.  Probably the #1 place I wish I saw before they destroyed it.  I’m sure it wouldn’t live up to the hype I’ve created in my mind over the years but it doesn’t reduce my desire to see it.  Perhaps it’s better I didn’t because I have such an idealized vision of the property that was reportedly a grind joint at the end of its life cycle.  But still, I shall fondly continue to put the property, and specifically that sign, on a Pedi stool.  Forever in love with the concept and the legend that was the Dunes, showcased in all its glory by @summacorp

    Twitpic of the week

    It’s such a different experience to drive up to a Porte Cashere; have people rush up to take your keys and bags while welcoming you to whatever property you’ve selected to enjoy.  Their hustle to take care of you as fast as they can is engrained to prevent any further delay in getting you on your way to whatever adventure awaits you this trip.  I know its an experience available at any hotel in the world but in Vegas, it’s just a tad more grand and alluring, as showcased here by @Summacorp of the original Aladdin.  The VIP experience starts right from the moment you get out of your car.

    The Monte Carlo is an interesting story.  It’s an example of a company lost and looking for an identity, unhappy with the one they’ve already established.  It all started with the addition of Diablos, evolved into a reimagining of the frontage and eventually evolved into a rebranding as Park MGM.  The problem is the Vegas market has something for everyone and when you take one of those options away, something has to replace it.  In this case, the needle not only didn’t recast Monte Carlo’s lot in the market, it degraded it.  Taking a property that pulled in $80 million a year and reducing it to $62 million a year after spending $550 million to rebrand.  Park MGM isn’t going anywhere but MGM Resorts didn’t intend for their new brand to be a discount option for visitors.  Thanks to @las_when for reminding us of a better time.

    PCP - Bob Stupak, Vegas World and the Stratosphere

    PCP - Bob Stupak, Vegas World and the Stratosphere

    Today, Bob Stupak is considered just another colorful character in the history Las Vegas and properly credited as the visionary behind Stratosphere.  His tacky taste, public antics and wacky persona are all just part of his legend.  The truth is, Bob embodies everything negative you've ever been warned about gambling and the industry.  He didn't want to just take your money, he wanted to make you look foolish while he did it.  His nickname might as well have been "fine print Stupak” because just about everything he did had a catch to it or a technicality he hoped you would miss so he could exploit.  He preyed on those that didn't know better.  But what's wrong with that?  Most people know there is a mathematically proven way to play some games and yet willfully choose to ignore them in favor of strategies that increase the odds already stacked against them.  Some people believe the earth is flat.  The fact is we all have access to the same information, especially in the Internet age.  The only disadvantage one person has over another is self-imposed.  An intellectual isn't discourage from using their acquired knowledge so why is gambling any different?  Morality, you say?  Well, as Canada Bill Jones said, it's immoral to let a sucker keep his money.  I’m pretty sure Bob just thought it was fun.

A perfect balance of crap talking & Las Vegas history

I started listening to this show because I was planning my first trip to Vegas, this was in the Fall of 2019. But I got hooked on the show because of hilarious friendly banter between Mark & Brian (old episodes). My first trip was planned for the last week of March 2020... annnnd of course that was ruined by covid. Still haven’t been to Vegas but I have not missed a single new episode of this show since and am still working my way through the older episodes, once I’m fully caught uo I plan to subscribe to the Patreon. Mark & Keren’s back and forth teasing reminds me a lot of me and my husband, Mark’s laugh reminds me a lot of mine and Tony, well, Tony is just hilarious. And even with all those amazing hosts, they’ve managed to have a lot of other great hosts intermittently over the years, especially the episodes with Vital Vegas. It’s gonna be a while before I’m able to reschedule my trip, as I don’t want to have to wear a mask my first trip out but it is VERY safe to say that it’s going to be an EPIC first trip thanks to all I’ve learned from these Vegas experts. Also, P.S., someone wrote in on a recent episode and asked what the Patreon subscribers should be called but shouldn’t they just be called Patrons?? Food for thought. Keep up the good work you guys!!!!

Great show.

I'm ashamed of myself for not leaving a review before now, I thought I had. Mark, Keren, and Tony show how much they love all things Vegas (besides circus circus) every week. I usually learn a thing or 2 and laugh way more than that.
