Landing at McCarran on FRI. This is quite sad to think that the five months since the Super Bowl is the longest Vegas drought I have had since I was a peach fuzzed little 20 year old. That's just depressing to imagine (the Vegasless thing, not the peach fuzz). So I have been staying at Vdara three times a year the last two-three years and it has become my new spot. Love the hotel but decided to cancel it this time around and am staying at Mandalay FRI Night and then over at The Mirage in a 2 BR Tower Suite the following three nights. I was thinking that I really need to take a little adventure FRI evening. Why is it that nobody ever mentions the GORGEOUS Hooters Hotel & Casino on here? I literally have not stepped foot within ten feet of that property since I decided to splurge one night back in 2004 and stayed at the Motel 6 on Tropicana Ave next door (which was a real treat because my toilet wouldn't flush after I made a little deposit in there and when I lifted the back of the hopper off to fix it there was a ziplock bag with $400 inside just floating about). I have never set foot in the place since it became Hooters. I'd occasionally walk into that disaster of a building back in the day (with the peach fuzz and my acid wash jeans) when it was the San Remo. Even though I'm still recovering from the black lung I contracted from there, I figure it's time to start fresh and try a new gambling spot for a couple of hours. Has anyone ever played there? Walked inside? Do you have to duck and roll when you enter because of random gunfire? Do I need to bring my gat? Is acid wash still a high fashion in the building (perhaps even an acid wash jort)?
