I wish there was a cool “About Us” story to tell. The truth is, I’m a salesman by day and a Vegas fan by night.
Growing up, my grandparents were Las Vegas enthusiasts and made places like Sands, Dunes and Imperial Palace a second home. I distinctly remember the matchbooks and slot coin buckets they would bring home from classic properties and now enjoy their photos of classic Vegas. Below is a photo of Grandpa Ron ripping a royal at the Sands.
Vegas has so much history. For me though, its personal. I can stand on the corner of Flamingo and Las Vegas Blvd. in front of Cromwell and know, from photos, that my Grandpa stood in that exact spot looking across the street to Caesars. Caesars may have had a smaller footprint, Bellagio may not have been there and the scenery may have been different, but standing on that corner, I can feel the excitement he must have felt – I can damn near feel his presence.
Las Vegas is a special place.
I’ll be tapping that passion for Las Vegas to help visitors find drink deals, cheap times to visit Vegas, hotel rooms that meet their needs, slots that pay out, secret restaurants, and so much more. If I think a topic will answer a question people have about Vegas – I try to answer it.
