Casinos and restaurants were taking the mask mandate pretty seriously. Most folks were wearing them on the street, but that is the time you'd see some folks pulling them down or not wearing them all the time to take a break. Casino and restaurants were all nice about it. A LOT of precautions taken in the gaming areas. Some more than others. Didn't always feel like Vegas, but there was still fun to be had.

Flights were fine. Didn't feel unsafe or anything while flying or at the airport.
Nice, where did you stay? I've spent quite a bit of time in Las Vegas.

I almost always try to stay at the cheapest place on strip that is centrally located. That has been Bally's the last two times I've went. They renovated their rooms last year, so that was nice. LOVE the location. A lot that I like to do in that immediate area.

We drove out to see the Grand Canyon one day. Also went to SpeedVegas and drove a Ferrari. LOVE that place. Always a lot of fun. First time going with a kid (lady friend and her 10 year old), so we got to do a few things I don't normally do. Ate well.

Awesome, I have stayed at Bally's. You are right about the location, it is very central. I've stayed at Bally's, Mirage, Treasure Island, New York New York, MGM Grand, Elara, and Paris. I really liked The Paris hotel, but Elara (on the Miracle Mile) was super nice. Its also cool that its on the Miracle Mile, but there is no casino in the lobby, which was nice when I was there for work.

Look at this just today, another cringe-worthy moment. He pronounced "Yosemite" as "Yo-Semites." He's functionally illiterate, it's amazing. I actually pity the guy, he's completely incapable of doing the job. It must be hell for him.

You and ABD must have missed it. “Yo”: A word commonly used to greet a friend. “Semites”: a member of any of the peoples who speak or spoke a Semitic language, including in particular the Jews and Arabs.

Thus, “Yo Semites!” Trump is saying hello to his Jewish and Arabic friends.
