Most of the things in the past that made Las VEgas Special to me are no longer a big deal. Alot of the things that people like about Las Vegas I did too at one time, but not so much any more. I no longer need a bar to stay open past 2am because I wont make it that long anyway. The Strip is no longer exciting, in fact I avoid it at al costs with the exception of running down to Nordstrom or Neimans at the Fashion Show
Anymore the fact that I have friends, a brother and two nephews and my alma mater there, those are the only reasons that Las Vegas has any appeal to me.
I do go to Las Vegas a lot because of the things that still appeal to me, but to be honest Id rather spend the weekend here in San Diego than in Las Vegas. Because of that I take real quick trips 1 or 2 nights but still do it 7-10 weekends a year.
