Going to Vegas Nov. 30

#11
Just returned. Strip dead. Downtown was hopping but it is a smaller area. Masks on other than hitting your cig, weed, beer or grub. Some places are on your ass in a nanosecond if you don’t pull it back up. Some weren’t. Best of luck have a great trip

Check out MGM and the Miracle Mile shops next to Venetian...and ditto on the Circa
Miracle Mile is next to Planet Hollywood. Unfortunately a lot of stores are closed up as of my last visit a few weeks ago. One place that is open is the Ocean One Bar/Grill. Has the best deals on the Strip for food without question. Pretty much the whole lunch menu is under $10, many drinks are 3 for 1 during happy hour. Dinner has some great offers as well. Gets crowded now that they have to space out the tables, but its definitely worth a stop.

C'mon man. You need to provide some details beside "I'm coming to vegas, what should I do?" Depending on where you are staying, what you like to eat, how many days your are here could be totally different experiences. I can guarantee you that you can do better than mash potatoes at Ellis Island with some more details.

Ok. I will be arriving Nov. 30. Staying 11 nights at the 4 Queens down on Fremont Street. I will be betting a lot of football and maybe some College hoops. I know some people there so get away and golf and play some disc golf. I live in Washington and our state is on lockdown for 4 weeks so I figured this was a good time to get away. Plus much better weather

Nevada could go on partial lockdown any day now. It seems the Governor though recognizes how important keeping the gaming open for visitors so you should be fine, but outside Downtown/Strip you never know what it might be like.

Will all of our restaurants are closed excep for take out.,I just need a getaway.
Its like that in much of the West. Today is day one of no dining in here in Colorado for at least 30 days. I would not be surprised in the least if Nevada saw the same rule implemented with some minor accommodation for casinos since they can't expect customers to take everything to their rooms.

last night about 10pm on fremont st seemed packed...they were funneling people thru 2 turnstiles as you went from one section to the next....made for pedestrian backups

room rates at places like Ballys Harrahs Flamingo for about 17/nite for next weekend...plus fees of course
I just got Diamond through a status match (so no resort fees for me) and the Caesars database people are emailing me like crazy, one guy even called me. Just for kicks I asked the guy could I stay for free for like 2-3 weeks at one of your properties in December and he said he couldn't promise it, but he would look into it. I have lost a grand total of about $400 this year playing blackjack and bac at Caesars properties playing at most $50/hand and yet they are acting like I'm a high roller.

I have the over/under of the Covid Gestapo shutting down Nevada as next Tuesday.
Many states (Michigan, Illinois, Colorado, Rhode Island & others) already have closed casinos (Some Indian casinos exempt).

Some Vegas casinos already closing midweek...Vegas is dead Mon-Thurs.

No one is traveling.

It’s understandable though.
After all, there’s only a 99.9%+ survival rate for non old, comorbid people 🙄.
I’d be very surprised if you have a hotel-casino you can check into upon your arrival.
Hope I’m wrong.

Isn’t Vegas busy on thanksgiving weekend?

I flew this past week, getting on a plane again tomorrow. The airport is getting more crowded than it was, certainly not normal though. I don't buy this no one is traveling story.

And as a clarification Colorado casinos aren't closing, just the tables. Rhode Island casinos are closing after the holiday weekend when they'd be in a slow period anyways. Michigan and Illinois commercial casinos closing are a big deal, but many customers just going to go to other nearby options in other states or at tribal casinos. Vegas casinos closing midweek just acknowledging reality. Overall though the casino business is at about 75-80% of normal levels. The very marginal customers aren't coming for the most part.

What hurts the metro-detroit gamblers is they have few options now. Can't go to Canada, the closest Michigan casino is Firekeepers, then Soaring Eagle. They can go to Toledo, don't know the Ohio rules. Hopefully the Michigan online gambling starts at the end of the month.
