Noooo! East side is the best, we like it quiet! Nah, my favorite are the homes, especially in my area. They all look different and unique, and there are huge front and backyards.

I knew the weather comment would stir up a lot of people. 110 is extremely hot! I'm not looking forward to June-September. I can stand 3 months of totrure. I can stomach the heat.

I love art museums. The casino are works of art themselves but I was referring to fine art museums. Comparably speaking, I can see Steve Wynn's whole entire collection, in about 5 mins at the MET, MoMa, or Guggenheim. The galleries are nice but always prenetous. Generally speaking art museums are for everyone most galleries and dealeries won't look at you if you don't have on an Armani suit. Oh well the Getty is right down the highway.

Vegas is a great food town.

#1 NYC there isn't a close 2nd
#2 SF
#3 LV impressed on strip and off
#4 Chicago people talk big talk, but it's meat and potatoes and Alinea Restaurant.
#5 Correct me if I am wrong but don't LA chefs come to LV after they get going?

I have already heard stories from some locals. I am starting to enjoy these stories as much as the Old NYC stories. Did everyone know Sammy Davis??

I don't know how anyone can hate this place. I think I will transplant my but here for good! Thanks folks!

Food is totally good here. I have a suggestion for a big pig out place. It's called Hash House at The M. they featured it on Man Vs. Food once. Celebrities like Neil Patrick Harris and a few others have eaten there. For alcohol I'd try Electric Lemonade. Watermelon Kiwi is pretty good too for both spiked or not. From this special menus the night my family and I went there we had these HUGE burgers stuffed with cheese and other things. For sides we had cheesy bacon mashed potatoes. None of us could finish our meal at the end but it was worth it.

Mi Peru is another place more in Henderson if you want to try it. It's easy to miss though. It's a little South American restaurant in a strip mall across the street from an Albertson's on stephanie and Horizon Ridge. The food is expensive but worth it.

Just think how Wimpy we are now think back to the days before A/C was invented and the old pioneers crossing this area in the summer or the settlers after them They had to wear wool clothing hot boots and be out in the sun most of the day. They did not have insulation in their homes or POOLS personal products were not available so they must have smelled quite ripe and they could not take a bath or shower when they wanted. I think of this as I get out of the pool and feel chilled and say it's better than shoveling snow

Chefs/restaurants that make it big in NY and/or LA tend to open outposts in LV. But you don't get too many originals in Vegas.

I completely agree! Vegas is mostly known as a resort destination but though I haven't lived here yet, it seems like a very underrated place to live. The amenities versus cost of living here is staggering(might be better than anywhere else in the world), especially the food(the Strip is great as advertised but I've never had food this good in the suburbs before) and the weather is great most of the year(the other times there's AC).

Bite your tongue:

SF (including the Bay Area, which includes Yountville)>NYC>LV>LA

Los Angeles is the home of pretentious overpriced under-seasoned food. I would take ANY restaurant in the Bay Area at random over any Los Angeles restaurant at random. Frankly, the raw ingredients are better in the SF area. Thus, the food is better.

Las Vegas trumps Los Angeles because we're willing to import anything from anywhere at any price. We fly in live seafood from Italy (beyond all hopes of environmental responsibility) to have the best of the best. NYC beats LV because they have the same attitude about sourcing food, and they have a clientele that can afford ridiculously expensive raw ingredients. White Alba Truffles? Let's buy 'em all! Black Iberico hams? Load 'em up!

I liked the food in Chicago. I had an advantage in that I was on a company credit card and accompanied by a couple of business associates who used to live in Chicago. Salpicon is a great Mexican restaurant, which is not what Chicago is known for, but it was fabulous nonetheless.

As far as old Vegas stories go- Dyni and Buzz ( posters here) are treasures.
