Vegas, Please

Posted by Carren Jao Pineda |

I am not a fan of Las Vegas. In my mind, Vegas is a place of false glamour and a little bit of sleaze

Last week, I had a chance to reconsider my original views. After more than ten years of not being back, I found a Vegas that's a touch more refined, a little less cocky and infinitely more appealing. Oh yes, there are still slot machines everywhere but I didn't see as many super-sized drinks and cases of conspicuous consumption. 

The buildings are still huge and shiny, but like a teenager coming to his own, Vegas seemed to have mellowed in a good way. Good enough to come back, maybe.
