One of the LV new blogs Vital Vegas ran an interesting story about some of the mysterious ways of Las Vegas. It got me thinking of my own mysterious experience and I was wondering about the odd encounters of others? Dec. of 2011 me and a few pals were staying at Harrah's. As were the norm I would awoke, go get a coffee and hit some VP at was is not the LINQ, but was then the IMPERIAL PALACE. I was playing along, sipping my coffee and enjoying the experience of waking up with the city when one of my buds called and asked me to meet them up by the craps tables. I began walking towards the front when I detected a strange smell, the smell seemed to be getting stronger as I got closer to the table games. By the time I reached the front people were beginning to hastily exit. We also began to walk briskly towards the door, we were laughing at first as were some others. It was soon realized that a walk wasn't enough and we along with others began to run, it became a little crazy with everyone running towards the exit at once. We got out into the valet area and it was not until we were all the way out on the sidewalk of LV BLVD that we could breath. It was a crazy scene and an odor of biblical proportions that I have never experienced before or since. It literally cleared the casino out and no one seemed to know what had happened. The bowels of death was a descriptor I remember hearing to describe the foul odor. We ended up walking to PH and thinking this would be some big deal and we would hear about it on the news or at least learn the source. Nothing. The next day I walked back in the IP and you could still smell a lingering odor, which wasn't abnormal, but this was especially potent. I asked around the casino and everyone obviously played dumb. The best I could get was a casino worker telling me they believed it was due to a gas back up in the plumbing under the casino that back vented into the property. I am sure I have not accurately described the smell, I just am not that talented of a writer and I don't think you could understand unless you were there. We all know LV casinos are spin masters, I am just wondering of any odd experiences of others?
