    I seem to get lost constantly in PH, not that alcohol has anything to do with that..... As long as I stagger our near one of the 2 ABC I can replenish though.

    With the machines off I don't think it's as weird as being in an empty casino but having all the lights and machines going. I was at Venetian a few years after it opened and when it was less packed with people and machines early on a Monday morning and remember walking around and seeing maybe 10 people that was freaky.

    Also we went to Vegas a week after 9/11 (long story don't ask) and stayed at Alladin (now PH) and it was deserted as were most of the the casinos. The strip also had turned down all their lights and some were projecting flags on their sides it was sureal. The thing that got me the most though were the service carts on the Alladin casino foor. They had dimmed the interior lights and all of the carts had small candles burning on them. It really was ghostly seeing that.

    Wow, the last trip to Vegas we took was for NYE, we stayed in P. I have probably the exact opposite of that photo taken on NYE - absolutely rammed. We are also watching through a few Vegas Vlogs right now in the hours before the closedown, it's eerie stuff.
     
    Hoping we will be allowed in from the UK!

    For me it's always Bally's/Paris. That place is my kryptonite. At least PH has those escalators in the middle that I can use to orient myself, but the trip from the south entrance of Paris to the monorail station is usually at least an hour.

    Interestingly, Cosmo appears to have most of their machines "on". I couldn't see if the screens themselves were operational, but there are certainly a lot of LED lights going. There's huge variation in general; Flamingo has their neon signs going, but Circus Circus is totally dark, and Aria has the floodlights in the porte cochere but can't be bothered to turn the lighted "Aria" sign on at the top of the building.

    This photo makes me feel sad. Will be happy when its open again and it's too cold, too loud, too crowded and too smoky. It will feel like home.
