    so i was offered free airfare and room for 2 people to laughin towards the end of february. i've had similar offers before but i really have a gambling bug and am considering it.

    how are things in laughlin? is it a ghost town?

    we talked about taking them up on the offer and driving to vegas.

    any input would be appreciated.

    thanks
    todd

    bars are open. masks required except when you're sitting down eating. restaurants and casinos at 25 percent capacity. no room service for staying over. just when you leave. in between you get towels, etc. from housekeeping. I wouldn't say it's a ghost town. what I noticed was there seemed to be quite a few newbies there who didn't know how to cash a ticket. maybe wherever the would normally go was closed?
    not as much fun wearing a mask but not terrible. restaurants have a system where you give your hame to the hostess and they call your cell phone when your table is ready.

    Laughlin is pretty normal. I read an article recently that said they are only down about 20% while Vegas is over 50%. They didn’t have convention business to lose and entertainment was a minor draw to them. Clubs (day and night) have never existed there. Gambling, restaurants, and bars were the main draws and they are all still open (althogh operating with limitations to insure social distancing). It’s not Vegas (never has been and never will be) but if you go with typical expectations of what Laughlin has to offer, you won’t be disappointed.

    Wife and I are on a Caesar’s junket in mid-March. Also wondering how bust it is? We are Thursday-Monday, could make it a bit more busy than mid-week. Wife has had her 2 shots for the Covid, I have had my first and will get my final one in a couple weeks.
    Will golf for 3 days so that will occupy 5 hours each day. I know some of the restaurants are closed but we should be fine with what is available.
    Really ready to wander out some after the lock downs.

    yes, forgot to say it's mostly and older crowd (including some very old) and doesn't have the same vibe as vegas. no loud dance or hip hop music, etc. there are also young families there. I don't know why anyone brings little kids to a casino town in the winter. I guess they can use the heated pool but what else?
    guess they just need to get out of their apartments
