With the collapse of Wall Street, with gas and heating oil reaching prices that many of us believe we would never see in our lifetime, along with the entire nation sitting on the edge of their sofa waiting to see if our government/lawmakers will come to the rescue of Wall Street and save, what seems, like the whole world from bankruptcy (because as the US economy goes, so does the rest of the world), you would think there is not a silver lining among us. But there is.
Las Vegas, which is solely dependent on tourist traffic to survive, has been reacting to this current economic down spin just like any business would do: with the usual layoffs, cut backs, and spending reductions. When this happens, finding values in Sin City is like finding the elusive needle in the haystack. Yet, Las Vegas and values have always been synonymous with each other. Cheap buffets and cheap hotel rooms were always the norm for many years as the casinos were willing to give them away hoping that whatever monies you saved on all these amenities you would bring to the casino tables, where they held their biggest edge. This was how Old Las Vegas operated. That was until the casinos with sole ownerships were bought out by corporate America. We skilled blackjack players have been saying this for years, namely, that the new mentality of the "corporate way of doing business" was just a recipe for eventual disaster. What happened to Wall Street will happen to these greedy casino operators. Customers always remember when they are treated well and look upon their venture into casinos as the adult entertainment part of their family budget.
When ordinary folks have to reduce their expenses, the last things they cut before family obligations is the things that they enjoy the most and usually this is their trips to Las Vegas. Why Vegas? Because, Las Vegas has always been known as a place where you can get a good bang for your buck. Well, this may have been true in the past, but nowadays "Old Las Vegas bargains" are getting harder and harder to find.
But donít despair because there is one good deal that has been ongoing for the past 17 weeks in Las Vegas, and Iím about to share what it is with you...
