Resort Fees, Parking Fees. Be Aware!

Visiting Las Vegas for the first time or returning?  Things are constantly changing here but fees are a turn-off and can cost you a fortune.

I Have To Admit He's Right

In this Trumpworld era, where our Republican President makes himself look foolish and contradicts so many things that he says, this Republican candidate for Nevada governor makes sense.
Visiting Las Vegas can be costly when you figure in all of the resort fees, taxes, kitchen appreciation fees and entertainment fees. This guy wants to put a stop to the newly imposed Room Tax increase, which was created to fund the Raiders football stadium.  I agree.

Mob Museum: The Underground is Now Open!


If you needed a reason to visit The MOB MUSEUM in Las Vegas, THE UNDERGROUND is now open. Despite claims of "a still for display only"...not true.
The STILL is working and producing Moonshine. The small BREWERY is also working. The current batch of beer will be ready in about 20 days. Crafthaus, in Henderson, is the brewer of the Museum's bottled beer. The bar was doing a brisk business this afternoon with locals and tourists enjoying craft cocktails. Very talented mixologists crafting period and modern-day cocktails. It's a talent and a show. Stay thirsty my friends (I think someone else said that).

What is the Mob Museum you ask???  <<<< Click here

HINT:  If you're driving there, expect to pay either $5 or $7 parking fee. If the lot is full, you will be directed to park in the lot "on the other side of the wall" making sure you park against/along the wall. Otherwise,  you will get a $20 parking ticket.  There is a FREE Downtown Loop bus hitting all of the Downtown area, not The Strip, which stops across the street from the museum, so you might as well leave your car there all day.  Look for the large pink signs. You can't miss the pink bus, well actually it's a van.

Here We Go Again!! United Passenger Told Massive Fuel Leak Was 'Normal'

United Passenger Told Massive Fuel Leak Was 'Normal': Not only did United botch the mechanical issue, but its customer service made things worse yet again. (Credit Travelpulse.com)

ARE YOU KIDDING ME.....AGAIN?!?!?!?  I will keep my United/Chase credit card, but since I now live in Las Vegas, Nevada, I can fly Southwest almost anywhere including Mexico.  Happy Landings!!

Pat's Pizza, Chicago...Since 1950!

A Chicago institution since 1950.
I am a pizza snob as I was born and raised in New Jersey with NJ and NY pizza.
One cannot even compare NJ/NY to Chicago pizza whether Deep Dish, thin, or thick since they are in completely different categories. I learned this a few years ago and to compare would not be fair.  I ordered a 12 inch sausage and mushroom pie. Thin crust is GOOD and thank God it was not a cracker crust or cardboard with ketchup!!  The sauce was decent and the cheese was real. I enjoyed the "9 pieces of paper" measurement cut in small squares, not slices, apparently a Chicago thing. One MUST appreciate the fact that Pat's is a family owned institution in a setting that probably has not changed much since opening day. I love and appreciate restaurants like this! The variety of beers was well appreciated.

United Airlines.....UGH! Again!

We all know that United Airlines has gone to hell since their not so easy merger has happened.
I really do not look forward to being a United customer, since I'm able to fly on Southwest at almost every chance. Enjoy this video from The Jimmy Kimmel Show on April 10, 2017.....It sums up United Airlines in 30 seconds...............
