Hoofa's Visitors...

Frontier Hotel 1942-2007

"This is the end result of all the bright lights... and the comp trips, of all the champagne... and free hotel suites,
and all the broads and all the booze. It's all been arranged just for us to get your money.
That's the truth about Las Vegas. We're the only winners. The players don't stand a chance. "

-- Sam "Ace" Rothstein, Casino, 1995

People of the Las Vegas Strip...

The Las Vegas Strip has a collection of people probably unlike anywhere in the world. Aside from the thousands of tourists walking around there is collection of people that inhabit the Strip on a daily basis. The following photos show the mix of people that I have come across...

Up and down the Strip you will find a variety of people dressed in all sorts of costumes or doing some sort of entertainment. They cannot charge for their "services" but if you want a photo taken with one of them, you are expected to toke (tip).

This young lady is quite interesting. I am not sure what her "costume" is supposed to be -- Black Angel, maybe? Anyway, she tends to hang around MGM and seems to get quite a bit of attention, especially from drunk guys. If you know who she is, tell her to check out my blog. I would like to do a Q & A with her.

This next pic is of a guy on the pedestrian bridge over Flamingo Rd. I thought his sign was quite amusing. There are guys like him all over the place holding signs begging for money.

There are homeless people all over the Las Vegas Strip. They tend not to be as hostile and aggressive as in other large cities, but they will hit you up for money given the opportunity. This guy was sitting near MGM and just did not seem all too happy. Had that look on his face that he lost his last $20.
