I’ve been in Vegas twice and I loved it! I don’t even gamble. I just think it’s a treat to look at all the bizarre architecture there. Hey, to each his own.
The first time I went I thought Caesar’s Palace was hands-down the tackiest place on the strip. Hell, it was the tackiest place I’ve ever been in anywhere. I got a picture of a sculpture of Porky Pig wearing a toga, I had an extended conversation with an Elvis impersonator who told me he felt like a “freak in a cage.” They have Roman-style sculptures that move and talk, they have a copy of Michelangelo’s David (how Roman is that?) and they had cocktail waitresses in mini-togas.
On my return trip, however, I thought the Paris had surpassed it. They had cocktail waitress dressed in mini-gendarme outfits, guys wearing striped shirts and berets pushing carts of French bread around, guys playing accordions and a whole bunch of other crap that just screamed OOH LA LA!! Plus the building looks like Paris exploded and fell back to earth in a random fashion.
So, anyone else have favorites or stories to share?
What happens in Vegas need not always stay there!
