    Went Saturday - Tuesday.....my review

    Was a very different LV Strip. With bars and shows not open Casino was crowded everyday. It was also a very different crowd.

    I had the executive suite. Couldn’t open the door Sunday morning because 2 guys and a girl where passed out in the hall way blocking it.

    Sunday when I went to my room from elevator 6 guys where doing lines off the god damn hallway carpet and smoking weed. I told them to do that crap in your room their is kids in this resort.

    It was an absolute S. show. Zero craps etiquette the tables of course.

    Monday I spent most of the day at an empty Harrahs and turned $400 into $4950 in 3 hours over a combination of 4 games which saved my trip!

    I use to love the Flamingo, but I will never step foot in that place again, harrahs I actually liked and it was not crowded at all.

    as for table limits post Covid

    Craps

    Ballys - $10
    Paris - $15
    Linq - $15
    NY NY - $15
    Excalibur - $10
    Flamingo - $15/$25
    Harrahs - $25

    What kind of idiot would do lines off a carpet in public?? Sorry you had to deal with fools all trip from what it sounds like. At least Harrah's was able to save the day.

    I'm thinking whatever they snort off the carpet is less dangerous than the coke.

    Hmm, I don't know about that. If they bought the coke off of John out front of the Flamingo, I'm sure it's more baking soda than anything else. Who knows what's growing under the Flamingo's 75 year old carpet!

    Different hotels attract different crowds, covid or not.

    The current clientele in Vegas is.... not good.

    I stayed at the Wynn two weeks ago and even there it was not like it usually is. People behaving like animals all over the place.

    I can’t elaborate without getting political.

    No, I didn’t feel unsafe. More annoyed than anything.

    My Buddy just back got today from 3 nights at the Wynn and told me that on the Strip the people using electric scooter rentals are out of control and are dangerous for the pedestrians.

    Flamingo has been packed every weekend. Opening weekend it was like nothing had changed. A nice blast to the past but far from safe given what's going on.

    And yeah the crowd is sketchy at best even at the higher end properties. With dirt cheap rates they're attracting people you wouldn't normally see. I've seen security in the hallways at Caesars multiple times booting people already.

    That is so true! Those people on those scooter were so annoying. I was thinking they must’ve had a discounted rate on them, because it seemed like EVERYONE had one.

    Thankfully I didnt see anything disturbing like that at the Flamingo when I was there mid July. There were a lot of people driving erratically on scooters out on the strip, though.

    I was a guy ride his scooter up the escalator by Ballys. With a toddler. His buddy waited on his at the bottom to see if he would make it all the way up. Built up a line of pedestrians behind him. Use the elevators, boys.
