Music and entertainment abound at Resorts World. e major acts that play here are mostly contemporary but also attract cross-generational audiences. Fans of the American Idol reality TV competition show will be drawn to the revolving residencies of pop star Katy Perry and country crooner Luke Bryan. Comedian Kevin Hart is a regular in the resort's 5,000-seat theater. So is magician David Blaine. My entertainment draw as I write this is March Madness basketball games. I'm watching San Diego State play in the Sweet Sixteen inside the Dawg House Saloon. at's me in a recliner, chomping on a Wake-and-Bake breakfast sandwich and gazing up at a floor-to-ceiling TV screen as the Aztecs advance (and then go on to reach the championship game!). From Dawg House to the penthouse. At night, I take the express elevator up to the top floor at Resorts World. Allē Lounge on 66 is an upscale room that offers bottle service and panoramic views of e Strip. e dimly-lit, 66th-floor lounge is filled with patrons snacking on Wagyu beef sliders and other bar munchies, presented by attractive servers in black dresses. My high-top table is adjacent to a window. I glance out into the darkness and look down on the peeling paint and neon exterior of the nearby Circus Circus casino. You see this flashback coming, right? Of course, my buddies and I ambled over to Circus Circus back in the day. Decades ago, we played $1 blackjack there. Today, according to Expedia, rooms are still just 30 bucks on some nights. On younger legs, we'd walk from e Stardust to pretend to be big spenders at Circus Circus. Now? If I want to venture into the north-Strip environs there's a more innovative mode of transportation. Elon Musk's Boring Company has tunneled from Resorts World to the Las Vegas Convention Center. An underground Tesla vehicle trip takes just a few minutes. Everything on this Vegas visit has caused me to reflect. Everywhere I turn there's innovation. All at once, I feel an affirmation to both enjoy the memories and relish the new reality. detour destinations << The author takes in NCAA March Madness at the Dawg House Saloon Resorts World Las Vegas rises from the former site of the historic Stardust Resort and Casino RESORTS WORLD LAS VEGAS: COURTESY OF RESORTS INTERNATIONAL DAWG HOUSE SALOON: COURTESY PHOTO ranchandcoast.com 66 MAY 2023 RANCH & COAST MAGAZINE
