Default las Vegas trip cancelled

Was planning a trip because the rates have never been lower....

forget that....

A buddy just got back


100 % mask enforcement...if you're eating you lower your mask and take a bite raise it back up and when you are drinking also.....
officers are walking around enforcing it...first a warning ticket and then a fine!
No exceptions

Pools closed, bars and clubs closed.....only 4 people allowed at a table game...
No shows are open.....its basically a ghost town in some parts

Scratch another one off the list

We just bought tickets for spring break because they are so cheap. But we don't have plans to stick around Vegas. Zion, Grand Canyon, road trippin the area. Vegas is a pit even without mask rules.

After 50+ trips there, I whole-heartedly agree.

We just got back yesterday after a 6 day run. U can take your mask off while at the table to eat, but any time your in the casinos u have to have it on. It was still pretty packed. Freemont st is on a whole nother level, people didnt care down there. No shows are open, u either walk around and shop, are gamble. We also went to the grand canyon west, that was the best part

We are going next week. I love blackjack and craps so I'll have fun no matter what. I guess if it sucks too bad we can do the grand canyon and other sites around. Oh well it was cheap and I love the desert.

Throw me in the group of what did anyone expect. The price discounts reflect the demand; which is simply pretty low. It's not just wearing a mask in public ordeal. Heck, many of us already have to do that where we live. It's the limiting capacity everywhere, no shows and overall hassle that puts a downer on what is supposed to be a fun getaway.

I'm sure the no shows is a deal killer for a lot of folks. Gambling used to be a big deal in Vegas, but since most of us can tickle that fancy with a short trip over LA, OK or NM, it's not as big a deal.

You really have to wear a mask while you eat and only can lower it to take a bite?

We went in August. We always stay at the Cosmopolitan because it is one of the nicer places and we have free room comps. Because of Covid, their rates were lowered and the clientele wasn't nearly as nice as it typically is. I felt like we were in the Golden Gate - Downtown.

Masks were also bothersome. You can forget about me understanding what a dealer is saying with a mask on behind plexiglass in a loud environment.

No story to tell really. My girlfriend and I didn't want a big fancy wedding so we hopped on a plane and went to Vegas. Got married at "It's only just begun wedding chapel". The Chapel was on the third floor of The Imperial Palace and about 78 steps from the elevator doors.

We are also still married.

I can vouch for that as we were there also for a wedding then. I will say, we didnt have to wear a mask while out eating or sitting down drinking at a table. What a difference a month makes I suppose.

Wife and I were there at Halloween and basicly the same as here. There are partitions between the players at tables and if no partitions then only 3 at a table. People pulled there mask down to smoke and drink then back up but dealers have been instructed not to deal if don't wear there mask. Not much different than around here. We are going back in about 3 weeks.
