In case you missed it, I’ve got a slightly-more-serious but still fun piece up on Two Way Hard Three about various longshots on the Las Vegas Strip:
With a renewed push for a casino smoking ban in Nevada, I go to thinking: which would happen first–no smoking in a casino, or a casino dress code? They are both changes that some people think would improve the casino experience, but would probably be fought tooth and nail by most operators. I just can’t see them turning away a player because he’s in a t-shirt instead of a sportcoat, or because he wants to smoke.
Still, I thought it would be interesting to consider which of these following scenarios might happen first.
It’s just a thought exercise, but I think it’s useful to try to see around the corner and predict what’s going to happen. It’s obvious that the status quo isn’t going to continue forever, so it’s interesting to try to guess what’s going to stay and what’s going to go.
