Sin City Presents Magazine August 2016 Volume 3 Issue 8 - Page 2




We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.

What Happened To My Hometown?

Once upon a time in a city filled with Neon lights, glimmer and glam you used to hear the tinkling of coins dropping into the trays of the slot machines, change girls eagerly walked the casino floor ready to sell you more coin, cocktail waitresses were beautifully costumed and wore high heels, there was a doorman to open the door and welcome you to the casino and the restaurants (even the coffee shops) served great food at an affordable price. All of these amenities were offered with one goal in mind, to keep the player at the game and in the house as long as possible. Going out for an evening on the strip used to be an occasion to dress. The men wore suits and the ladies wore gorgeous evening gowns and you planned an entire night, cocktails, a show, dinner and a little gambling.

Fast forward to today’s Vegas….. Now we have bill acceptors and change machines, the cocktail waitresses act like it’s a chore to bring you a drink in their frumpy uniforms and flat frumpy shoes, the doorman is a thing of the past completely and the restaurants, including the coffee shops are all commercialized with mediocre food at best.

Now don’t get me completely wrong there is still fine dining on the Las Vegas Strip but not in the restaurants operated by the hotels. You’ll find these little gems in sub-leased spaces in the hotels.

All of the creature comforts of living in Vegas seem to have disappeared. I want my $1.99 steak and eggs at 2am, .99cent shrimp cocktails and $4.95 prime rib with all of the trimmings back! I want the glamour and class back! I want the service back!

Perhaps it’s time for these big commercial conglomerates to revisit history and start running these hotels on the principles the strip was built on. Perhaps then we’ll see the return of some old money in Sin City and stop catering to the non-gambling millennial. By the way leave our valet parking alone!
