    In Feb when we were there Wynn security was escorting a man off the bridge btwn them and the mall. Seems they don't want the same problems as the Ballys Bills bridge. So it can be done.

    Not to "thread drift" but just wanted to say that I've always found Wynn security to be very on top of things. I was playing VP one morning at Wynn having my coffee and some local guy (typical of who hangs out on these bridges) that stunk of booze and cigarettes (at 8am) came and sat next to me and started bending my ear about baseball and a bunch of other off the wall shit. He seemed pretty unstable, mentally. It was no more than 30 seconds and 3 large guys showed up and escorted him out the front door.

    I just looked up at the "eye in the sky" and gave them a thumbs up:thumbsup:

    We've seen numerous gaurds at Wynn/Encore making rounds w/ dogs too at various times. There is bound to be a certain amount of degenerates lving in a city like Las Vegas...always has been and always will be.

    We always have tended to play, eat and drink where we stay and when we do wander (because we almost always go in the hot weather), we always cab it anyway. At night after drinking :drunk:when we didn't feel like walking, we've even caught a cab from the Mirage to Wynn....hows' that for lazy?:poke:

    Thanks for posting the warning. I made the mistake of taking that walk at 1am(so naive) on our first trip. We walked from Caesars to EI and then to the Hard Rock and back. We got our fill of these same type of characters. Never again, and we were damn lucky not to be in that same situation.

    I've walked between EI and the Strip several times in the day and at night without incident, but I'll admit that this thread has upped my concern considerably. Sure, more than likely nothing bad will happen; but as in the casino, shouldn't one weigh the potential risk to reward? That prompts me to ask, how difficult is it to get a cab from EI or the adjacent Super 8 back to "civilization?" Likewise, I'm also considering catching the bus only at the more heavily populated and "safer" stops.

    I caught the northbound bus from there a couple of times last weekend – no problems, just delays because of the roadworks there. quiet bus stop though.

    I also caught a cab one night at Super 8 – waited less than a minute for one to turn up.

    An angel must have been with us, when we were walking from MGM to Luxor, last year after a Jay-Z/Mary J concert. :rolleyes2:

    Thanks for the warning.. it is always good to have a reality check.. Especially since I am going on an all girls trip soon.. and trust me it wouldn't take a weapon to over power us..

    Although I must say for the most part I think Vegas does a pretty good job of making you feel safe. When you walk straight from the casino to the cab line there is little room for issues. However, personally speaking, it's easy to get caught up in the moment (and the liquor) and let your guard down..

    My wife and I did the walk to E.I. twice, earlier this month, and never really felt threatened. Our walks to the place were typically at dusk and the walks away from E.I. were some 2 to 3 hours later.

    I had a bad vibe the first time we went there last year, but I just attributed it to my paranoia. The food was much better than expected and we've left there every time very much up in the gaming wins. I can definitely understand some of the other concerns voiced here.

    Just walk fast and don't make any eye contact. :confused2:
