I love it. The LA Times has just published the “Ultimate Low Roller’s Guide” to Las Vegas in yesterday’s Travel Section.
For all of us tired of dropping hundreds of dollars on a hotel room, hundreds on a nice meal, and hundreds more at $25 minimum tables, there is an alternative. Sure, it’s not as nice and ritzy as the mega-casinos on the strip, but if money is tight, Downtown Vegas is the place to be.
Writer Marc Cooper takes us to the grittier side of Vegas where hotel rooms can run $39 a night, minimum bets are in the single digits, and the food is cheap, cheap, cheap! You won’t be seeing the Blue Man Group or any high-class rollers in this part of town, but you will get a feeling for what Vegas was like 20 years ago.
