A recommendation for locals. If you have short stay local visitors use a limo. We always equip ours with the desired drinks and stop at a couple of places along the strip. You can control it from a couple of hours up and down the strip, to a bar crawl, to a dinner and drinks in many places. And most of the limo drivers are knowledgeable. May also work with the deluxe Lyft and Uber but we have not tried that yet.

And no one gets a DUI.
That's a good idea. Get a party together and rent the limo by the hour.

This guy? Manny Pacquiao driven to remain relevant at age 40

I don't follow boxing much but I do remember that big boxing match a couple years ago where there was an overflow of private jets at the airport.

Looks like he won. MGM just posted a video.

I've been calling it The Strat all along. I like it. It seems weird to call it The Stratosphere. Who cares?

It's the Stratosphere and always will be for me. The "D" and "Drew" are all stupid to me. I know a lot of locals use "Trop" for Tropicana, I use Tropicana. I don't like the shortening of names, but to each their own I suppose.

I did not know that, but now that I do, that is a terrible name for a Las Vegas hotel.

Never buy something Carl Icahn is selling.

I hear in Icahn HQ they refer to the Drew as the Chump.

Can be argued name doesn't matter it's the product. Golden Knight.... Lol.

If McDonalds renamed quarter pounded to KHraP burger I'd still buy them.

Well, we now have United Airlines Field at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Sadly, not many venues left without some form of naming rights.

The Blazers play at the Moda Center but any fan who isn’t like 9 years old knows it’s called the Rose Garden and everyone still calls it that besides the radio, since they contractually have to honor the naming rights. It’s awful. What if one day they renamed Yankee Stadium to W.B Mason Stadium or Dunkin Donuts Stadium or something?! I’m not calling it that! It’s Yankee Stadium forever.
Ha, back in New York plenty of people (myself included) would still refer to where the Mets play as "Shea", even though it's been more than a decade since Citi Field opened.
