It's just the perfect ambience to turn it up while going down the Strip. Any others?
From what I understand, they have a Noise Control vehicle that patrols the Strip, using decimeters, mainly to tag cars with loud stereo's. Too much of that unwarranted noise could deter visitors/conventioneers.

I've been a member of NoiseFreeAmerica for years. They're forever giving me uptakes on what's being done to control unwarranted noise in this country.

$2500 fines some areas for playing a loud stereo in your car. They even have Noise Radar in Edmonton, Alberta now. You pass by one of these Radar stations, around the city, and you may get a ticket in the mail.

I left the house (barely) yesterday, had to get something notarized at the bank that’s like 200 yards away but 0.4 miles driving (literally the opposite way out the neighborhood ha ha). I feel so lame, I have left the house so little that even something that small honestly feels weird to me. I’m going to take some time to readjust to society after this I think ha ha!

What are people doing for Thanksgiving? I know that’s a controversial topic perhaps. My wife is flying back home to be with her family, but even then half her family won’t go anywhere so they won’t be there, just her immediate family. I’m staying home (she’s gone for about 8 days starting Sunday) and I’ll piggyback my two aunt and two uncles’ Thanksgiving here in Henderson. It’ll be a small gathering, I think two of their kids might be there maybe, but I would argue they’re all kind of in our bubble as we see them often and they don’t really see anyone else nor do I. It’s... well, if I were them (older) I probably wouldn’t really be seeing anyone, but that’s their choice. I’m glad for it because being alone on Thanksgiving would have really sucked.

Sad news about the death of Tony Hsieh, Zappos CEO. He was good for Vegas.

Interesting couple of weeks. Last week got feeling a bit out of it. Cancelled my at home physical therapy on Tuesday. Woke up Thanksgiving morning with the chills. Has a 3 degree fever. Got very concerned and crawled into bed. OK Friday and for the weekend. Got a call from the physical therapy outfit. My physical therapist was out with the corona virus. Spouse and I are working to get tested this week. But it appears that even hermit is no guarantee of protection. Boy I can't wait to be done with this.

Wishing you a speedy recovery from whatever it is -- and I sincerely hope it's not coronavirus.

So my mom told me the nephew has Covid so I cancel plans
to visit my brother last weekend. Talked to my brother later when he
asked what days I was going to visit. I'm like "what??!?" and
he says nephew just had a common cold.

Hope it is the same for you and just a false alarm!

So if you get a chance, venture over to the Merry Crimson pop-up bar
at the Red Rock Resort. We actually visited since we like late night happy hour
at Yardhouse and I wanted to check out the 2 story Gingerbread house and the
Red Rock chocolate model.

Even though we asked 3 or 4 employees, we didn't find one who knew
where the Gingerbread House was until the 4th employee. It's inside
Merry Crimson bar. That place rocks. The decorations are just amazing as
are the decorated rooms. Very festive. We're going to head back for happy
hour at some point to try the holiday drinks.

On a side note, at 10pm on a Monday night, Red Rock seemed surprisingly
busy. It was good to see,
