Come to Vegas if you love LINES

I’m not talking about cocaine or guys trying to woo you at bars. Well, actually Vegas has tons of that too.  But I’m talking about waiting in what the Brits call a “queue.”

So after 3 nights of camping and no shower… I was ready for my hotel room with a real bed and real shower.  When we got there, we were welcomed with an airport security type line (sans metal detectors) to check into our room.  After a half hour of standing in line, we finally got to the front and were told that our room would not be ready for another 3 hours.  So what did have left to do, but visit their mall and casino where we were able to (you guessed it) spend money.

That was just the first of several thousand lines that we would stand it.  In Vegas, you stand in a line to eat.  You stand in a line to get your car from the valet.  You stand in a line in a line for the bathroom.  You stand in a line for the ATM and you even stand in a line to cross the street.  I’m not making this up.  I have photo evidence.

The best line we stood in was the line for the Spice Market Buffet in our hotel, Planet Hollywood. It was the best for two reasons:

  1. The result of standing in this line was being able to eat at one of the most ridiculous buffets I’ve ever seen.
  2. It was the most ridiculous line I’ve ever stood in:  We had to stand in line to go down to the buffet.  It wasn’t too bad.  Maybe only 30 people ahead of us. The hostess/line leader let us past the rope and into buffet area downstairs.  We thought we were going to get to eat at this point.  What we find out is that there is actually another line waiting for us at the bottom of the escalator.  This is the line to pay.  There are about 75 people now in front of us.  We wait about 30 minutes to get the front and once we pay… we got to stand in a line to wait to be seated!  So to sum it up, we waited in a line to get into a line to get into a line.

Of course, there was a VIP bypass the line area. So pretty much don’t come to Vegas unless you are a sucker who likes to wait in lines.  Or if you are a VIP or know someone who knows someone.

Photo evidence (sorry they’re so dark, but Vegas is a shady place!):

The line we got into pay after we had waited in line.  There is still another line after this.  It had cleared out a little by the time Emad and I were done.

They make you watch video of people eating before they corral you down into the next two lines.  So cruel.

What happens in Vegas costs a lot of money

Okay I don’t know what the big deal is about Vegas.  What ever you do, you spend about 45 times more money for it and wait at least 30 minutes for it.  Gambling is the biggest rip off ever.  I went to 5 different casinos and I saw NO ONE win it big.  I don’t care that I didn’t win, I just wanted to see SOMEONE win like 500 bucks or something.  Oh and the best part is I sat down to play some roulette with my $20, and the guy next to me was playing with his 6 or 7 $5000 chips.  If losing the $20 didn’t make me feel like a loser enough.
