Royal Flusher's Daily Vegas Pic - July 13, 2018 - Mermaids

Happy Friday the 13th. Do you believe in bad luck?


I think it's unlucky not to.

One travel trick I use is to book a seat in the 13th row - other unlucky people avoid it, so I have a better chance of 'empty middle seat' bliss.

Some people recommend flying on Friday the 13th when possible for the same reason - people tend to avoid it.

What has all this got to do with deep fried twinkies?

Nothing!

I never did try one of these and I don't believe I missed much.

Royal Flusher's Daily Vegas Pic - July 9, 2018 - Year of the Cosmopolitan Dog

It's the year of the dog, so why not?!

This whimsical grouping of mutts is way upstairs in the Cosmopolitan. They sure find each other fascinating.

Royal Flusher's Daily Vegas Pic - July 7, 2018 - Riviera Neon

There's not enough neon in Vegas these days, if you ask me. Nothing says Las Vegas like a brilliant, colorful display of flashing neon.

Riviera asks the musical question... Are you next? Something to think about.
For some reason, at some point, the Riviera decided to encase the entire south west corner in neon and mirrors, and if you ask me, it was perfect Vegas.

Not quite classy, not quite slutty.

With all the mirrors, the Riv's display was ripe fodder (does fodder get ripe?) for a budding young photog to snap a bunch of abstract images.

Like this one.

I call this one "5 Cent Coffee on Acid"

Royal Flusher's Daily Vegas Pic - July 6, 2018 - Downtown Las Vegas at Dawn

Downtown looks interesting these days from many vantage points. Take a look at this image I grabbed from the last trip (sneak preview of the upcoming full trip report).

It changes throughout the day and night, and at dusk and dawn, colors pop out to grab your attention.


One of the biggest changes is the annihilation of the Great Moments room, which was ensconsed inside the also annihilated Las Vegas Club. (Anyone remember the Great Moments room?)

What's left is nothing more than a flat desert. With a couple of holes in it.

But the cool thing is the views it opens up. You can see the Cal clearly from Fremont hotels, and vice versa.
