    As a spinoff from the "Mecca" thread I thought I would throw this question out:

    What do you call it?

    A nickname?
    A term of endearment?
    A code word?

    Or do you just call it Las Vegas?

    Me? I say, "I'm heading west".

    "DisneyWorld West" when telling my adult kids where we are going.
    "Vegas" the rest of the time

    But I do love the term "Lost Wages" some folks use.

    I'm not very creative.

    It's "Vegas" for me.
