OYou’ve seen all of those commercials about the city .
You know the ones I’m talking about .
“What happens here , stays here . ”
Yeah, sure you’re right .
You know that’s not even the truth .
Come on now , we saw your Facebook and Instagram photos where you and your besties are acting the fool on the Las Vegas Strip .
Your parents even recognized you doing things that they certainly didn’t teach you back home in North Dakota .
Was that your grandmother with you at the Chippendale Theater at The Rio Casino and Hotel ? !
Some of us even saw your tweet on Twitter .
” # GETTING LIT IN VEGAS ” “# ALL ABOUT THAT VEGAS LIFE ”
It’s not only known as “Sin City” , but to the millions of people driving up from Los Angeles , it’s sort of a suburb of LA LA Land .
There’s another way to describe the city .
New York City on steroids .
Trust me on this one.
I lived in New York , Los Angeles AND LAS VEGAS .
I’ll say it again in case you missed it the first time I said it .
Las Vegas is New York City on steroids , the kind the doctor shouldn’t even prescribe to you, even if you do need it .
This city is 24 / 7 , just like New York City .
It seems as though people don’t sleep here either .
They aren’t just here to lose their money at the casinos .
Nope , they’re here to party and eat at all those restaurants and buffets that they heard a lot about back in Tokyo or Portland , Maine .
Las Vegas seems to reinvent itself not every few years , how about every few months ?
Even the old hotels being imploded to create even fancier hotels seem to draw crowds .
It’s just another show on the Las Vegas Strip .
The city used to be a place where the stars went to be seen and heard .
Families wanted to get in all this fun as well .
As much as you want to bring the kids with you , leave them at home .
No really , leave little Jack and Jill at home with the grandparents or a babysitter , even though they want to see the fake castle at Excalibur Hotel and Casino .
They said they want to go to Circus Circus and take in the rides at the Adventure Dome, plus they want to see the guy that looks like a lion at Luxor ?
It’s not a lion, it’s a sphinx .
Remind them that Las Vegas isn’t Disneyland .
It’s Disneyland for adults .
There’s so much to do and see in this city and it’s not even the capital of Nevada .
More about Las Vegas in some of my later posts about this city .
Now , I’ll bet you’re wondering just what is a post about Las Vegas doing on a blog post called 30
Plus Teams , 30 Plus Dreams ?
It’s not a side trip , even though it’s close to Los Angeles , Denver , Phoenix , and Salt Lake City .
Oh no .
This wild and crazy city is the newest stop on the 30 Plus Teams Tour .
Beginning in October of this year at the T Mobile Arena , the National Hockey League welcomes team number 31 , the Vegas Golden Knights .
This already crazy city just got a little crazier with their first professional sports team .
