Let’s start the weekly Vegas News roundup with a short story about a big deal. This week Las Vegas Sands (LVS) sold all of its properties (aka “Venetian Sold”) in Sin City. The company is now just “Sands” since it has no more businesses in Las Vegas. The deal happened early in the week so I’m not going to get too deep.
It’s NASCAR weekend in Las Vegas, so let’s start the news at the track. There are over 100,000 people expected to visit Las Vegas for the races this weekend…… Robots Invade The Vegas Strip ? I wrote about robotic bars 2 or 3 years ago and wondered when they would be in Las Vegas. It looks as though it’s time for robot booze slingers to hit the Vegas Strip.
I usually start the news of the week with something from the business side of Las Vegas. Today I want to begin with news in the casino. This has been the catalyst for many of us to fall in love with Las Vegas. It’s what keeps many of us visiting Las Vegas. Sure the restaurants, bars, and shows are great but the epicenter of the action has long been the casino.
