I went to Freemont on Sunday night and was very impressed by the new restaurants and bars and the upgrades on some of the hotels but the homeless people were everywhere, I was constantly being asked for money. this also seemed to be the theme on the strip. I used to love the people dressed up as characters but now they are people dressed up in dirty suits and disgusting things like an older guy walking around in there underwear. The people dressed up like the Avengers could have been outdone by any 8 year old on Halloween and they seem to expect you to give them money just because they put on a costume. We usually spend a full night downtown but this trip we might have stayed for an hour, the beggars under the zip line were quite a touch.
