    I'm sorry (and I'm sure I'll get flamed for this) but I couldn't get past the glaring error on the second freaking word of the article:

    "Whether your a Las Vegas resident or frequent visitor..."

    Are you f'ing kidding me? :bang:

    Sorry...back to the thread.

    Staying exclusively downtown since the early 90's, I only got two answers correct. However, give me a downtown quiz with questions like where are the restrooms located in a specific downtown casino, best late night specials, worse blackjack rules, fastest cocktail service (important to know), best comps, best place to purchase pop and in room snacks, etc.; this is a quiz I would nail.

    Well it is from the LVRJ, no surprise.
    Embarrassed I only got 4 right and I consider myself kind of a expert about downtown things.

    i got 2 right, of course those questions about red light districts in the 40's were kind of tough.

    I got 6. I underestimated room stays, number of visitors and revenue.

    I was low on those too... surprised me... My assessment of the downtown aficionados here on the VMB led me to believe those numbers would be a little higher.

    So true, those are the most important things to know!!

    I got 4/10 right...I thought I knew downtown (especially the history) better.
