We just don't have the crowds or the staff like we had before the pandemic shutdown. Fewer people, more things to see. The New Circa resort is getting ready to open in Downtown Las Vegas! The first new building resort in Downtown since 1980. Adults Only!Big Elvis returns to the Strip. That means life is coming back to the Strip!
258 Trip Report: Our Staycation at the Cosmopolitan
For my wife's birthday, I decided to surprise her with a two-night stay at the Cosmopolitan in a one-bedroom terrace suite with a view of the Bellagio Fountains. We were on the fortieth floor and it was an awesome view. here are the details and thoughts on our little adventure! Being locals, we don't really have a need to stay down on the Strip too often and with the eCovid scam going on, we needed to stay local for her birthday, so a little "Staycation" was what we had. Stay Local but act like a real vacation!

In this episode of Mondays with Mark - The Vegas Tourist Podcast, Las Vegas plays host to the 2020 NFL Draft in April. How will that work out? How will the NFL's bully mentality mesh with the reality of the Las Vegas market? Will the NFL be wise and go along to get along and to sit back, let us run the show while they cash the checks? It works for the NHL.

You never know what you will get when you listen to this podcast, it a great interview or a crazy story!
Either way it's lats of fun!
i didn't expect this
i recently started listening to this podcast and was willing to overlook the host's stuttering, but after the most recent episode i will unsubscribe. i did not expect to hear their passively racist opinions about the nfl players who kneel during the national anthem. really? you are willing to drive them to the border so they can leave the country? i-i-i-i-i can't listen to this podcast anymore.
Best Vegas podcast!
This is the best Vegas podcast out there. Mark and Sazzy do a great job of both entertaining and informing you about the events in Vegas. These guys always have a funny story to tell.
