Stays in Vegas
For 15 years now, my jobs involved making people feel comfortable when they hand me their money. Las Vegas makes people LOVE to hand over their money. This weekend trip just convinced me once again that Las Vegas is the most American of all cities, and reminded me all the reasons I love it so much. The oft repeated slogan “What happens in Vegas” plays all over again & again there. A truer one didn’t test well: "We 100% guarantee that you will lose it all, and that you will still love it". No matter how noisy and crowded, over-the-top, artificial, garishly decadent and popular Las Vegas is, it’s always evolving, energetic, re-inventing itself, over-indulgent, larger than life fun. Too bad I don't like to gamble...

Hehe, I was already to comment on this even before I saw that it was a gift :)
I can't agree with you more about no city being the epitome of American culture than Las Vegas is. It truly is a unique city that has a pulse to it that no other place I have been to has. (I'm not even sure if this is a good or bad thing but I love it.) They've tried duplicating Vegas in other places, notably Atlantic City, and have failed.
On a sidenote, I love Vegas yet rarely gamble (although I do have to hit the craps tables when I am in town, best odds in the house), but then again I love Tiki bars and rarely drink.
Hanan, you didn't tell us where you stayed during the weekend trip.
