April/May Poll Question Results

The Trop

Originally uploaded by scottyvegas2


The biggest game in Vegas just might be the casinos themselves. The newest casino is always trying to outdo the last. This is evident by endless construction on the strip. There are still several “classics” on the strip but they are starting to really show there age and this economic downturn will, I’m sure, sink the last nail in the coffin for at least one. With this said please participate in this month’s poll


Tell me, in your humble opinion what Las Vegas Strip property should have a date with the wrecking ball and finally be put to rest?

To Theme or Not to Theme?

Originally uploaded by scottyvegas

The Las Vegas theming trend of the 80’s and 90’s is over and upscale luxury hotel casino’s is in. Current themed properties are going through de-theming. Excalibur no longer has the dragon/wizard show and has scaled down the castle theme throughout the casino. Even though I did see, on my last trip, a guy walking out of the casino with a Viking style hat on. The Luxor is also going through de-theming most of the themed decorations inside the Pyramid is gone. However, an Elvis themed hotel/casino was being thrown around in 2008, but with the Las Vegas economic downturn I think all talks have ended. Anyway, tell me what you think by participating in this month’s poll.
