That is very true. When I was in Las Vegas, I didn't spend much on gambling and I spent a lot on restaurants, designer stores, "O" show, and hotel room.

By the way, excellent picture! It is getting built faster!

Las Vegas makes money from people who stay for several days and they spend money on a lot more than just gambling.
Yeah, the shows in Las Vegas are

Hmmm Have you seen all of it? In my opinion, "O" show is one of most impressive shows even I seen in ages.

Not in all of them, ive been at the House of Blue men, Venetian, Mistere at the Treasure Island, and one of the Cirque du soleil in the Mirage and at the MGM... and of course the O! Show.. The best shows in the world are in Las Vegas..

I forgot to ask the question when I was taking the pictures of Las Vegas City Center... Do they have the plans to demolish Jockey Club Towers? I hope they will get rid of it since they're eyesores between City Center and Bellagio.

The Jockey Club will stay there, but the Cosmopolitan will cover it up and you won't even notice it.

They're not done yet. Hopefully they'll change the facade so that it blends in with the Cosmo.

Yeah, everyone was hoping they would just get rid of it. But it's a timeshare, so there are like 20,000 owners and they couldn't buy out all of them, so the Cosmo is building around it.

My God! Let's hope they incorporate the superstructure of the Jockey Club into the new construction, kind of like they did with the old Marina hotel and The MGM Grand.

Never mind about it. I just looked at that smiley face menu that you showed it that made me thought your smiley face meant "bored" but its turned out "drools". Sorry about that.

True. I wonder how will they replace it with mega resort since they got very small property since City Center and Bellagio took over the properties around The Jockey Club. I think they should replace it with new connection between City Center and Bellagio.
