Bored to tears sitting here in the Southwest terminal at Burbank Airport...and I still have another hour and a half before I can board my flight to Vegas for our annual pilgrimage to Sin City for a Kings game.

We used to do the Kings/Avs at the Grand for the Frozen Fury and after that ended it's T-Mobile Arena and the Knights (although last year we replaced the Kings game with a Roger Waters concert at T-Mobile).

Anyway as much as I can't stand the Knights and their fans and those pre-game cheese-fests, I love the arena. I still prefer the MGM Grand as I have so many memories there, but man, T-Mobile Arena is pretty darn sweet.

Staying at New York New York this time...my first time staying at that hotel. Once again I prefer the MGM Grand, but I got a great deal on this room.

I just hope the Kings win this time. I'm batting like 500 at Kings/Knights games in Vegas... but I always seem to win big after Kings victories... even hit a royal once on max bet. That one paid a thousand bucks.

Hoping for more of the same tonight!
 
How much are the tickets at T-mobile these days? My in laws are there and I do want to see a game there but I'd rather it be at the henderson Knights prices.

Not bad. We got lower bowl for about a hundred bucks a pop. Comparable to crypto.com Arena.

Funny thing though: concerts are usually cheaper at T-Mobile than the Crypt.

For example I got Tool tickets at T-Mobile for less money than the Crypt in February. Same for Roger Waters a year ago. I got tickets on the floor for about half the price I would have paid at the Crypt.

Really love the arena though... I still think Staples/Crypt is nicer... but this one's pretty sweet too.

One thing about the Cyrpt I still don't understand is why they closed the balcony. Does anybody have any idea why they did that?

Okay I better grab another cup of coffee before I fall asleep and miss my flight.....

Maybe it was to hard to keep peeps from smoking and vaping?

I've seen 2 concerts at T-mobile in the last year and really, really like the arena. As for NYNY, one of my favorite hotels on the strip.

The outdoor balcony/patio behind 325 or so? It's still open, just no smoking or food anymore. We have seen plenty of people out there getting fresh air at night. I wonder if it's open for Lakers and Clips games? Once they do the remodel, that whole area will be very different and I'm assuming utilized quite a bit as it will be the big outdoor plaza in the artwork.
 
I remember years ago they used to have a pre-game party over at NYNY for the Frozen Fury games.

Great times and great memories.
 
Check under your mattress for a dead hooker!
LOL!

No, no dead hookers under the bed. I checked. I always do.

As for the room next door, there's a high level of probability someone was dead in there. I have to share this story...

...I've been going to Vegas since 1970 when my mob-connected parents spent a lot of time at the Hilton and we went water skiing at Lake Mead. So I'm a Vegas veteran. I've stayed in dozens of hotels hundreds of times...but I've never seen a hotel maid react like this before when she opened the door to clean a room...

...next to me were three Ivy League types. They looked like young Wall Street execs, immaculately dressed, probably early 30's. But it was so loud in that room...not just the women screaming, I mean the freakin' floor was shaking...I could barely hear myself think. But after all I had to drink, I managed to fall asleep anyway.

The next morning as I was exiting my room the maid was opening their door and she screamed "Sweet mother of Jesus! I ain't going in there! They ain't paying me enough for that sh*t!" So I took a quick peek inside. All I can say is...the best way to describe it...it looked like a bomb went off in there. It is utterly incomprehensible that all that damage took place in one night. I wouldn't have gone in that room unless I was wearing a hazmat suit and a full face respirator. I think it's safe to say those guys had some, um, hookers in that room.

You gotta love Vegas...but this is why I ONLY stay in nice hotels. And regardless of the hotel, I check their rooms out VERY carefully. We stayed in an old hotel downtown once, and I'm still wondering how it was possible we didn't catch a wide variety of diseases...including a few medical science had yet to classify.

But it's all worth it to see the Kings in Vegas....even if they were sleepwalking through half the frickin' game.

If the room don’t cost $350 a night (Before my comp) I ain’t staying there.

I really liked NYNY! Well, except for whatever was going on next door. It sounded like something out of the movie "Babylon". But the beer deals in the casino were sweet, and the overall vibe was pretty chill. I'll definitely stay there again

All I have to say is this reminds me of the sketchiest motel I ever slept in. In the late 1980's driving on the the 80 West at the Nevada side of the boarder with Utah. We were too tired to keep driving and that place was the only choice.
