The two were very "moooved" by their experience in the "sin city."

The hotel was located on Fremont Street. About 10 years ago, the city wanted to prevent downtown from dying out due to the competition from the glitzy casinos on the strip. As a result, they covered over the downtown area and make a pedestrian mall.  It is a celebration of OLD Vegas as  you can see from the signs. At night, the roof is also a type of LCD screen which has cool light and laser shows every evening.

But wouldn't you know, the show started about 10 minutes after they left. vegas143157AA.JPG (73979 bytes)Tom HAS to get some shopping in wherever he goes.
Tom and Lori don't can't seem to get it right.
