Reading a few posts today with mentions of kids in Vegas and wanted to share my experience in August. Let me start by saying that I love children and had one of my own. (now 21) BUT, and that is a big but...THEY DONT BELONG IN CASINOS!!! Whew. I understand if you are visiting family in town or something, but why would you want to drag your screaming brood around the strip in 100 degree weather around all of the homeless, drunks, and young women barely dressed. While on vacation I saw people dragging their tired kids up the strip well after 2am. I was splashed and jumped over several times in the pool. One night at 3 am, I was playing at a bank of machines and there was a baby screaming at the top of its lungs right on the other side. For 5 solid minutes. "Rah, rah, wah, wah, rah, wah." What a buzz kill. The topper of it all. I was playing the new Playboy penny machine at Caesars. 1am. Had a few in me. Kind of tired and cranky. An Indian family walks past and one of their brood, about 7 years old, plunks herself down in the seat next to me. She then proceeds to start pounding buttons on the Playboy machine next to me. Then starts spinning around in the chair..."whee". The parents start laughing and taking pictures. It took all of my self control not to smack the kid and the parents. The "parents" then put thier other kid in the seat, and take more pictures of the both of them. AT THE PLAYBOY SLOT MACHINE. Ha ha...good times.
