Every now and then when your life gets complicated and the weasels start closing in, the only cure is to load up on heinous chemicals and then drive like a bastard from Hollywood to Las Vegas ... with the music at top volume and at least a pint of ether. -- Hunter S. Thompson
The new hot hotel is the Wynn, AKA Janet's hotel (her last name). We stopped in, and it is pretty wonderful (at least what we could see). It's everything Vegas is famous for. And it doesn't look very kid-friendly...
And one last note -- The old Hoover Dam tour has been "Vegas-ized" too. Visitors can't go into the dam anymore. There are blast barricades heading to the dam, and a check-point some miles earlier. The amazing Art-Deco style of the dam simply isn't on public display anymore. The new visitor center is nice. It's just not the Hoover Dam. Damn.
Tomorrow, it's home to California.
