Las Vegas


Monday we went to a timeshare presentation for the free breakfast and tickets to a show. As veteran timeshare owners since 1982 these are always interesting to see what is happening in the industry. It's not much fun when you get an inexperienced sales rep but this time we had a top sales manager who was responsible for member services. All in all we had a good time. 


Some stats from the LV Visitors' Center:

HOW MANY VISITORS COME TO LAS VEGAS?
Last year was 38,928,708.
HOW MANY CONVENTION DELEGATES VISIT?
2011 saw 4,865,272 attendees.
HOW MANY CONVENTIONS ARE HELD PER YEAR?
19,029 were held last year.
WHAT IS CLARK COUNTY'S GAMING REVENUE?
In 2011 it was $9.2 Billion.
WHAT IS LAS VEGAS STRIP'S GAMING REVENUE?
Last year was $6.1 Billion.



 We decided to walk to the Strip for lunch and to wander around. We are about a mile off the Strip and we decided to have lunch at Harley Davidson as we had never tried them before. They had a special comprised of an appetizer, rib steak, six shrimp, baked potato  for two for $35. We decided that this would be our big meal of the day as we could walk it off in the afternoon.


The usual characters were out on the Strip.


The world rodeo championships are in town so even the statues are garbed in cowboy gear.



Poor SpongeBob SquarePants reduced to working for tips.

The cowboys loved these girls.

Marilyn was not happy that hubby was taking this photo.

However zoom cameras are great if a little fuzzy.

Talk about super-sizing my meal!
