E-201: Celebrating Mediocrity

Random Vegas
Casino Royale’s casino is 17,500 square feet, the smallest in the Vegas market that this show covers which is to say the strip; Fremont and places walk able from either.  The largest is MGM Grand at 171,000 square feet.  To compare, that means you could fit 9.77 Casino Royale’s into an MGM Grand (show research)

It’s simultaneously inspiring and depressing, beautiful and hard to look at; it’s the view outside your plane window as it slowly takes you away from the Vegas strip.  A view that can bring grown men to tears regardless of how much abuse they just suffered at the cities hands.  From this view, brought to you by @bobsmith55, you can’t see, or remember, the 6:5 blackjack, the switched out booze, the resort fees and franchise charges.  For some reason, all you see, or can think of, is opportunity fading away, right outside that tiny window and then the longing to return begins.
