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. "

What the hell is going on here?

This past year or so I have noticed this trend in several casinos in the Las Vegas area.  Usually it's a group of  men, all under the age of 30 and wearing disguises / costumes while they gamble.  The main impersonation I have seen is Allan Garner from The Hangover.  So there will be 3-4 guys all dressed like Alan Garner, with a baby doll, playing craps or blackjack.  It is just too damn funny.  I have also seen guys dressed up like the Village People and heavy metal characters from what looked like something from the movie Spinal Tap.  Mind you, this is not Halloween in Las Vegas...

Allan Garner character from The Hangover:

Personally I think these disguises and costumes are great.   In fact I think it is quite funny and amusing to see these outfits and the attention they create in a casino.  However, I thought casino security had a problem with people wearing disguises?  I was always under the impression that if a person gambles in a casino with a wig, fake beard, sunglasses, etc., casino security would have an issue with this.  Apparently this does not matter anymore as evidenced by this photo I took recently.

This first photo is the casino floor of the Hard Rock Hotel.  It was taken on a Thursday around 7:30pm.  Looks pretty normal right?  Notice the bottom of the photo.  There are three gentleman playing craps.  Note their outfits, especially the shorts the one guy is wearing.  They all had wigs, fake beards, and sunglasses on.  I was not able to get a clear picture of the front of them....

Here's a cropped version....

  1. That is SUPER funny. When I first thought about it, I thought it would be stupid, but seeing 4 guys dressed like that all together is freaking classic.
