E-321: Lake Charles Water Spout

Random Vegas
Sahara has turned the Monkey Bar, formerly at SLS, into the Tangiers, a nod to both the former name of one of Sahara’s hotel towers and the name of the fictional casino in the Martin Scorsese film “Casino”.  Although to be fair, the hotel tower had the name before it was used in the film (@VitalVegas and my big Vegas brain)

I’ll be honest...Vegas isn’t the same now that I live here.  That desperation to savor every moment and make sure its memorable enough for you to survive off of until your next opportunity to catch a neon fix, is no longer there.  The large amounts of pictures, chips/cards/dices/pens/room keys/notepads/plastic cups/branded napkins...are no longer coveted.  That’s all gone now.  Now, we can just go out and enjoy these things whenever we’d like.  Had a shitty day, let’s go to Cosmopolitan, play multiline video poker at the Chandelier while Keren plays Gems before grabbing some Secret Pizza.  Or should I get Hatti B’s?  Had a great day?  Let’s celebrate.  I’ll get reservations at Heritage steak and tickets to Beatles LOVE at the Mirage.  Oh, is a band touring?  We’ll have to keep an eye out for when they come to Vegas…because everyone comes to Vegas.  Bragging aside, we finally live in a place that feels like home AND serves as a beacon, to the coolest people, in existence, on this planet, per our own, independent study.  Thanks again to @MaverickHeli for reminding us how much better we are than all of you.
