Nightlifeless in Vegas Seven

Vegas Seven’s nightclub issue is out today! And what better topic for the Green Felt Journal than…casinos without nightclubs:

If you’ve been on the Strip in the past five years, you know that nightclubs are front-and-center at most big resorts. Which begs the question: What’s a Vegas casino look like today when you subtract the nightclubs?

When I found out that this was the nightlife issue, I had a dilemma: I don’t really have much to say about nightclubs, but I couldn’t write about something totally unconnected. So I figured this was a fun way to look at the impact of nightclubs on casinos.

I’m hoping for a fun segment on the next Vegas Gang: vibe dining vs. Seafood Shack. I’d really like to have that discussion, because to me you’ve got two extremes: upscale/pretentious vs. homey/tacky. I know which I feel is preferably, but I’d like to hear what the other guys think.
