Vegas Mate Review of the Week
@HugePopcorn’s Sept 15th review of R Steak & Seafood @ The Riviera – 3/5 chips

Twitpic of the week

This week’s winner, I think, is the tale of two cities.  For a long time, Vegas was populated by an ever-growing collection of the most eclectic (some might say tacky) architecture in the world.  A medieval castle resides across the street from an Egyptian pyramid and the NY skyline.  However, the Vegas theme evolved into a singular note, thanks to the success of the Bellagio theme, the high-end theme.  Cosmopolitan and the buildings of City Center are direct reflections of that theme.  This week’s winner is from @MO_Lasvegas for a photo of north strip that I think documents the results of the change.  The picture, based on the angle, I’m guessing is from the polo towers or perhaps MGM, shows a large collection of modern skyscrapers dominating the strip.  But once again, Vegas’ eclectic personality can’t be stopped.  What captured my imagination is the thought of a Vegas novice enjoying the view of a random skyline only to find themselves confused to the extent of questioning, “Is that a mini Eiffel Tower?”  No, that’s Vegas
