So I did everything I could do with money that's gone. Go to a nice Vegas show: Ka! Man, was that some beautiful, beautiful work there. The last 1/4 was a bit anti-climactic, though.
Next day it was time for something different. I won my money back! Well, minus some expenses. Take that, Batman!
It was nighttime and there was a place I really wanted to go. DOWNTOWN! Let's experience the Vegas that was! Where is that Circus Circus charm? Why don't these casinos smell like alcohol and tobacco like they used to? Now its all spritz spritz, trying to hide the grime and ugliness we all know is there. I see you, Luxor, with you cologne sprayed lobby like some giant douchebag turned into a hotel by a bruja with a vengeful heart in some Grimm fairy tale. I. See. You.
Anyway, this was what I really wanted to see and Moss there also wanted to, as he puts it: "There's nothing like the smell and disgusting trash of Downtown where everything is chill and people are real." So we met up in Downtown before my we were supposed to go to LAX night club as a "Why not? We're in Vegas and these clubs are supposed to be alright" thing.
We spent about an hour in Downtown with a very generic reggae band playing, and a man with a saxophone who was mot my thing but I can see how other people would like him, see old mid-Americans. This wasn't some great Jazz, it was just... something. Here we met my buddy's roommate who was certainly something as well. She was a very "I hate everyone" type of person who judged everyone for wearing "uniforms" and being inside a bubble, you know the kind. She was immediately irritating to all of us who had just met her. She listened to some banjo folk music which she called "folk punk" but I couldn't hear any punk influence in it. Strange.
Anyway, we sped over to the club that was supposed to be nice with our guest list, and the music was popping from outside. This was some great millenium hits here! Some great club stuff, but once we got in, man was this some bull. It was just... boring. Nothing cool was going on and it was just a parade of douche instead with the music being the only positive about it. There were no dancers or burlesque as we were promised! We walked in... and we wanted out. So out we went back to Downtown.
