Default Las Vegas is not what it used to be

Here for work for two days. Decided to stay an extra day. Wish I hadn't. There was a time when this place used to be pretty cool, but it's really bad and trashy now. The people who come here are just not the same types as they used to be. It used to be kind of upscale but it's very crappy. Millions of Tapout and Affliction d-bags everywhere. The entire city is foreclosures. It's really freaking depressing man

We went down to play some golf, and the entire way to the golf course all you could see was brand-new construction homes covered with Los Angeles gang graffiti. Like the homes were never even occupied but are just sitting there rotting away. At one time those homes could've been very nice. Sad

Yeah, From what I saw this week, Vegas has taken a turn for the worse.

Default Re: Las Vegas is not what it used to be

Roger Clemens hit on my friends wife right in front of my friend last time I was there and I shared an elevator with Ted Nugent and two old people. I never said a word to Ted, just kept glancing over at him and chuckling, the older couple had no clue who he was. As we got to our stop I nodded my head at him and shrugged and he just laughed.

Later that night I spent about 15 min shooting the shit with Penn Jillette, who, as it turns out is a really cool guy.

Don't think I can top that.

Heard the same thing about Vegas of late. Housing downturn hit that place hard, and it quit being classy years ago.

A lot of older guys claim that Vegas was much better and classier when the mob ran the place. Now that it is run by a different sort of criminal ...

What? Vegas is Vegas man. It's always been a fun but sketchy city. Just have to roll with the right crowd.

Was there in January and November this past year. Not a place to bring the kids or hang out by yourself.

I may never go back to Vegas - not because I didn't have a good time, but because I know I'll never be able to live up to my last trip out there...

Default Re: Las Vegas is not what it used to be

I go there every year with a buddy. Its completely fine. Has Vegas changed? For sure. But I dont think for the worse. Now downtown on the other hand is indeed a dump and seedy. But any large city or town will have is seedy areas, no doubt. But the strip itself is still good and a blast. Not a place for kids for sure, and its not a place for everyone.
