Also Bills Steak and Eggs at 5am was a must
Circa sounds like heaven
I miss living and visiting LV. Stupid COVID ruined my latest plans.
I went over the 4th, as Cosmo comped me a wraparound suite and a couple of adjoining rooms. It was kinda cool, easy to walk around, everyone seemed nicer and more respectful, and I was impressed with the efforts to keep safe. Treated my friends to an amazing meal in the tasting room at Guy Savoy and had a lot of wine and cigars at Cosmo. Pools were great and had a relatively low-key cabana at Marquee on the 4th.
A weird and different experience for sure, but still a good time.
Well, this one hits home. Both Sage and Five50 Pizza at Aria are permanently closed. Sage was a Top 5 Vegas dining experience for me, and had the best cocktail program in town. Five50 Pizza was wonderful for hitting up weeknight football after work, and pizza was 1/2 price after 9:00 pm on Thursdays. Chefs Shawn McClain and Richard Camarota were terrific to work with.
That sucks. I wonder what becomes of the Five50 space. Edit: didn’t read the whole article.
We were going to do sage last time we stayed at Aria and chose Lemongrass that night instead.
Looks like it’s still pizza, just MGM operating it through Moneyline brand, their sportsbook offshoot
Yep. Probably still good, but I have a hard time believing it is Five50 level.
Lemongrass was/is also excellent. Not quite Sage level because the bar was a bit less. Wonderful Thai cuisine. Terrific GM. The Chef is excellent. He had a hard job. The kitchen was very cramped and it was always HOT because of the wok burners. The cook staff was mostly native Chinese cooks who spoke 2 different dialects and Hispanic cooks from different countries. Maybe one or two spoke English. The Chef did a very good job making it work.
On the surface this sounds like a pretty good deal. I think the hated resort fee is still in effect, so you have to add that in.
I was just thinking about doing that, but idk if it’s worth it for a working trip where you can’t do much. $50-75 fb per day doesn’t go that far for 2.
in may i booked flights and comped rooms for flamingo for chiefs away game weekend against the raiders (week before thanksgiving) but cancelled them today. no way i'm stepping foot in vegas until the country has this shit under control.
Has anyone been this month? Curious as to how lame it is right now (as expected)? I’ve got the antibodies and have been wanting to make a run, but bars/drinking is my thing.
The linked article says occupancy Yates at the opened resorts are about 30% during the week and 50% on weekends. Many properties remain closed.
Right after I posted that someone texted me back. Apparently most places are open and bars are Semi-open but they make you purchase a food item. Atmosphere is relaxed. People are happy to have you he said. I see some talk here:
*also, friend and his gf have antibodies for those wondering
I imagine there are deals galore and that service is great. Do these make up for the reduction of the typical Vegas vibe? That’s up to the individual visitor. I did have friends go to Mayfair Supper Club at Bellagio last weekend and they had a great time.
I’ve heard from locals that Wynn and Cosmo buffet service is great
Instead of self-serve they now have servers behind the buffet line? I can see that working there. It wouldn’t be feasible at the neighborhood Chinese buffet.
Table service, is what I was told by one person. You order via the menu and get 3-4 choices at time.
Damn, that’s unexpected.
not having the walk of shame with your plate cheapens the whole deal for me
Anyone thinking of trip to Vegas should read this:
113 degrees in Vegas today, sounds like a good time
I love the shoe sole (and real soul) melting days in Vegas. When the AC hits at the next casino then it’s time to get drunk and lose money.
well, of course.
I’ll be there a week from tomorrow. Will you still be there?
Why, you wanna party in a parking garage?
Nah I’m not there now I just saw the temp on my weather app
I had a great time.
Park MGM going smoke-free.
The Cromwell is opening up! And, it will be Adults Only. I hope Giada’s opens too. It’s one of my favorite restaurants.
Are they leaving the love island set at drais? So many groups of irresponsible rich kids would rent that whole thing out for a week at a time.
The cheesier the better, I say.
that's kinda fun.
It’s in front of the strat? You’re still north of circus circus. Few people are going to get to enjoy it.
The whole point is to draw attention north
I assume you’ve done all of those areas. What are the spots to hit north of the Wynn but south of downtown, and west of the highway?
Are the names I remember from my last trip. Not that I’m interested in CC.
There is a lot of revitalization if the arts district, and surrounding areas between the north strip and dtlv. Food, bars, arts, shopping. There is a barrier at Sahara that is kind of the point of no return. If you head past it, very high likelihood you’re going to at least keep going into those areas and around Fremont.
By highway, do you mean I-15?
And east of it
last trip I did Delano. Had nice view of raiders stadium, highway (I assume it’s i15). I Walked entire strip until Caesars on west side and palazzo on east side. Then we drove to downtown for an afternoon.
Guess I’m saying as a tourist based on the looks of it, I don’t immediately see the appeal of non- Caesars, LVS, MGM properties just from doing that drive from Delano/MB to Fremont. I think fremonts cool to get weird and change of pace. I’m curious what I’m missing out on if anything with the Rio, Sahara’s of the world.
