Before we get to talking about the reopening of Las Vegas…… On Saturday I woke up crankier than usual since it was 3:30 am.

I recently visited Golden Gate Casino. The trip reminded me why I like gambling at the Golden Gate. My single favorite craps table in Las Vegas…….
The Finest Vegas News | Sometimes we have an action-packed week of news. I like slower news weeks. The lack of “must cover” news allows me to look at some of the Las Vegas news and rumors that you may not have seen all week long.
