My son makes the observation that there are no balconies in Las Vegas hotels. We’ve got a room on the 24th floor of Bellagio, overlooking the fountains, which allows me to visually scan other hotels up and down the strip, and by god I think the boy is right.
Am I the only person who didn’t know that?
Of course it makes perfect sense once someone points it out.
The Vegas mindset requires that a disproportionate amount of attention be directed to winners . . . lights flashing, bells ringing, people screaming with glee . . . meanwhile, 99 other people are silently losing their ass.
Clearly it’s going to put a damper on things to have the losers flinging themselves off the balconies of high-rise hotels.
