One goes to vegas to pursue the more libertine cravings in life.
I do enjoy the word DRECK.....one need not ever have heard the word to know its meaning....for the same reason, I enjoy Yiddish....[b&r an episcopalian and now an aetheist] *******, and Putz come to mind.....VERY descriptive words that you just seems to KNPOW when you hear them ....

That being said, I do agree...with the exception of a few venues, one rarely sees things from the Metropolitan or the Louvre....

As to what the "CULTURAL ELITE" seem to think is HIGH CULTURE.....well....they are permitted their own beliefs as is everyone.

Head east on Fremont from LV BLVD. You would think you had just entered hell. It is filled to the brim with weekly/hourly motels, video poker bars, prostitutes, tweekers, scammers and everything in between. Possibly one of the most depressing areas I have ever been. I consider burned out buildings an improvement.

Were you born and raised in LV?

That question would make a good thread on its own. Just to see what everyone's answers are.

Au contraire, mon ami...The Bellagio Gallery of Fine Arts has had a nice Monet display going on for a while. It ends Jan. 6, 2013. They always have something good though. Las Vegas Art - Fine Art Gallery at Bellagio

The Leonardo Da Vinci thing is on display at the Venetian for about another month. My nine year old g-daughter was fascinated by it. It's very educational. Da Vinci - The Genius - The Venetian® Las Vegas - Resort, Hotel, and Casino

Things like that are always going on around here.

Speaking of the Louvre: My wife and I may have been having a bad day, but we were very underwhelmed by that museum. Not the art, but the museum. First of all, as Captain Fache said to Robert Langdon concerning the glass pyramid (it is) "A scar on the face of Paris." We rented the earphones and found that to be a waste as it covers only a few pieces. There was nothing in English, all signage and art descriptions are in French. At least in Rome they are in both Italian and English (the international language). The place is a maze and we were so lost we were about to get worried. My daughter and granddaughter love it, but I don't know if we'd do that again. Maybe in our yoot. Tough for an old dude. We much preferred the smaller Musée d'Orsay.

That would be a single answer as there can only be one "worst", and that's easy - between Donna St. and 5th St, and E. Lake Mead and Carey; and somewhere in the vicinity of H and Owens or 28th and Stewart would probably come in second.
