    Hi Fab!
    Yikes, I didn’t even think about the mask:blink: Was I getting so use to wearing it out there?

    But I thought at the time it was probably the guard’s presence that actually shut her down. :whistle:

    Have a good evening!

    Hard to believe the scooter companies will do much, if anything, that would cause them to lose revenue.

    This is good - Officers will start increasing their enforcement surrounding scooters. They want people to stop abusing the scooters. - I would be afraid of flying off the handle if got hit by some idiot driving one of those. hopefully Vegas will gain some good revenue from giving tickets out.

    ALL of these factors and more need to be eliminated, before I return.

    I bet security and police will have some good stories for Thanksgiving.

    Next there’ll be a company that installs breathalyzers on the scooters so they won’t start if you’re drunk. Lol

    We were in town over Labor Day weekend. Saturday night in Caesars was busier than I ever remember seeing, just a random observation. We arrived on Thursday night and stayed through Monday. We have somewhere in excess of 40 trips to Vegas, I've lost count over the years. My wife commented a few times that it seemed like just more of a rude/crude crowd than we have seen. I hadn't noticed anything over the top unusual until a near incident while walking the strip Saturday night.

    We just came up the escalator and were about to cross the strip from Bally's to Bellagio. There was a kid (probably mid 20s) that was laying on the ground with two other guys trying to help him up. He wasn't able to help them much as he was just hammered. I assume drunk, but who knows. Anyway, as we are walking by, he starts spouting profanities at us. We took a wide angle around them just to give them room to help the kid up. For some reason he keyed in on us and just started going off. He actually tried kicking my wife, which was kind of comical since he was about 6' out of range to connect with anyone. But it got my attention for sure. We just rolled our eyes and kept walking. Unfortunately, when they started moving, they were going the same direction. So he kept up with the tirade aimed at us, only now they were walking behind us. I wasn't sure what his friends were up to, but they didn't seem like a threat at all. We got about half way across the bridge and I thought it best to stop and move to the side. If he was going to do anything, I wasn't going to have my back to him. So we stopped and they kept walking.

    So, we just kept walking at a distance behind them. Just after they got him into the building on the Bellagio side, he fell to the ground again. As we were passing, one of the guys helping the kid told me that they don't even know him, they were just trying to help him get up and he got out of control. They both seemed kind of shocked by what they had gotten into with this guy. As he was laying on the ground with people walking by, i told one of them that if they really don't know him, just walk away. He's only going to drag you into trouble. So they walked away toward Caesars and we continued toward the casino in the Bellagio, and the kid was just laying on the ground, still yelling.

    Anyway, the kid was out of control. It got my adrenaline pumping a little as I wasn't sure what was going to happen. But I have to give some credit to the guys that were trying to help him. That age group trying to help out a total stranger in the middle of a crowd that was generally a little more rude than normal stood out to us. Not sure what ever happened to the guy, but they at least kept him out of trouble for a few minutes.

    Over all, we had a great time. We studied up on here and on YouTube, so we pretty much knew what to expect with the limitations. We didn't see any other trouble except the reports on the news. It was great to finally be back in town. Now we've got our next 2 trips planned. Now I see that the bars are open. Can't wait to get back, only 2 weeks!! Cheers everyone!

    I travel to Las Vegas quite frequently for work and returned earlier this week from my longest trip,10 days including the Labor day weekend, since the June re-opening and contrary to what I've posted previously my position now is to stay away from Las Vegas for the time being.

    The clientele currently being attracted to LV by low hotel rates and cheap flights is at minimum making your visit un-enjoyable and at worst making it unsafe.

    So sad to see the decline from June to today.

    Still going next Friday no matter what since all bookings are "said and done," but I do appreciate your report. Will do our best to stay safe.

    normally I would say that anywhere on earth that is an "entertainment area" 9pm would not even be the time that the type to cause trouble would be "pre-gaming" in their hotel room with the skol vodka and white claws

    but at the same time many of them are in Vegas because it is open and where they are from is not and they have been cramped up in the hotel a lot already....and their gambling budget is probably low to very low as is their overall affinity for gambling

    so the best bet is to have a plan and yet also be nimble and be prepared to go where the "cool kids" are not even if it means you are not at the place you wanted to be

    the trip reports also give a lot of information about what places are getting crowded, what places are making an effort to keep people safe and "socially distanced" and what places are making no effort

    the earlier the better is what I read in those reports and by mid day or a little later you can get a feel if the place you are is "the place to be" and thus not the place for people with more of a desire to keep a bit of distance and a relaxed atmosphere vs possible mayhem

    Sounds like that guy was a fool in so many ways with his actions and words. Hope the cops let him sleep it off in jail.

    I feel like that low rate /cheap flight reason is kind of a red herring. Vegas has always had low rates and cheap flights. Spirit Airlines, Allegiant, charters... Excalibur, Flamingo, off Strip, whatever..

    People want to party and Vegas has a party scene that is open for business. In many places, bars and dance clubs are still closed. Vegas lets you congregate in large groups without getting arrested. Add in the other standard Vegas OK-to-be-crazy stuff and what do you expect you'll get?

    While the violence now is certainly eye catching, I don't think it's significantly above what's been seen in the past. Is this just a viral moment?

    One silver lining is that LVMPD seems cognizant of the scooter issue and, at least from what they say, enforcement will finally begin.

    I’ll believe it when I see it, however.

    Why is the Vegas Appeal meter slowly but steadily moving downward? Did we just not notice these things before or is this something new???

    Wake up call people, Vegas should be avoided right now. I've been five times since the reopening and my visit last week was nothing but, this is not good.

    And before you ask I travel to LV for work on a regular basis and have a (xyz *) background so I take no joy with this position.

    * In this crazy world we live in right now I decided to remove the exact background.

    I think a lot of these things have happened there, as well as anywhere, for a while now. But to be fair, it seems that more and more negative has been going on over in Vegas, at least in terms of the prevalence of issues within the last few months.

    I find myself less and less interested for the first time, ever, really.

    Is it maybe that things are being reported in the media more often now?
    I think the casinos and local news tried to keep anything negative from being published. Now that everyone has a camera, it’s harder to paint the always rosy picture.
