We’re going to jump right into the Vegas News this week because I found a new document just as I was sitting down.
Vegas News Flash
It’s always strange writing Vegas News when I’m not in Vegas. I spent the weekend in Los Angeles so the bulk of my research happened in a foreign city.
Congratulations! We made it through another year! This will probably be the shortest Vegas News of the year so I’ll deliver it once again in Quick Hits format.
We’re slowly sliding to the end of the year. Hopefully, you’re having a great holiday season. Las Vegas is always fun around this time of year, especially Las Vegas New Year’s Eve. Tourists tend to stay away from Las Vegas until after Christmas Day. After that, it’s a different ballgame.
We start this week’s Vegas News mentioning that The National Finals Rodeo (NFR) is in town! There will be cowboys and cowgirls all over Las Vegas for another week. The weeks after Thanksgiving and before Christmas used to be a quiet period to visit Las Vegas. The rooms were cheap and too many people didn’t visit. That’s not quite the case anymore with the rise in popularity of the NFR.
Before I get to the “big” Vegas News about the Resorts World plan, I must say this has been a chaotic two-week stretch with friends visiting. So many people I know visit Las Vegas for work and/or pleasure. Being able to catch up with friends and acquaintances so frequently is part of what makes living in Las Vegas so great.
There’s not much of an introduction this week. While there was lots of little Vegas News, the wasn’t much big news. Also, I’m slightly hungover because of visitors.
I have a great passion for a lot of things in Las Vegas. There’s always something new happening in Las Vegas and with the companies that operate here. As you know, deciphering casino corporation earnings calls is one of my favorite ways to analyze the industry. Let’s just get to the Vegas News.
What a week! The Global Gaming Expo (G2E) was a blur. That blur sparked many memories both inside and outside of the expo itself. I’ll share thoughts on G2E another day. Let’s direct attention to the Vegas News focusing on casinos sold!
The Las Vegas PR machines might be slow right now but this week was a blur and I expect more of the same next week. A friend was in town for a conference and that gave me an excuse to enjoy Las Vegas like a tourist for a few days. Let’s get to all the Vegas scoop, and also my Vegas News G2E Preview.
