I booked a trip to Vegas for the 2nd week in July. I'm planning on taking in a comedy show (got tickets to see Joe Rogan), and hopefully go ride El Loco! Any suggestions of other fun things to do are welcome. I'm hoping to eat at Steak again, and maybe eating my bodyweight in king crab legs.
Tigga, please!

^ Well, why not make it a fireworks-loaded E-vent?
At 0230 in the morning. Cheaper than a rock band!

That was different. And fun to watch. :)

Well if you're like me and are attending EDC (or Electric Daisy Carnival) at Vegas Motor Speedway this weekend, have a blast and stay safe as always! Excited to check out what carnival rides and art installations they have this year. I saw pictures that they have a log flume this go around! :b


For me this will be my 7th time in a row attending the festival! 1st time was when it was still in LA at the LA coliseum in 2010 and then ever since it moved to Vegas in 2011, I've been every year since :) Always good fun dancing until the sun comes up! haha

Why do I still have a donkey title???

^^^ Even though the Riviera was pretty much crap, it's still sad for me to see one more of the casinos that I remember from my youth get imploded. Will Circus Circus be next?

That was definitely a good time, can't remember the last time I was up for 24 hours straight!

That puddle it made though.... :lol:

EDC is always a blast for the total experience. 4 years straight for me.

^^My understanding is that Circus Circus is a huge profit center for MGM.

Hey everyone,

I know a lot of us miss Vegas when theming was all the rage. I was looking for photos from when the Luxor was filled with awesome (and sometimes corny) theming. I came across this video of the hotel from 1994, it's opening year. You can see footage of things like the short lived Nile River Adventure, the exterior night time show, and the outside of the bizarre In Search of the Obelisk simulator attraction. As you can see, a lot has changed since then. In my opinion the majority of the changes have made the Luxor much less interesting. Today only scarce remnants of the original theme remain in the interior. It's been sad to see so many places in Vegas lose the decorations that made them unique. I guess that's business though. ;)

Anyways, enjoy seeing the Luxor as it was 22 years ago! (Warning: The video I found the footage in is some kind of weird conspiracy theory video. I turned the sound off and enjoyed the footage much more. The footage of the Luxor is mostly contained to the first half.)
