DMarks Las Vegas!
Table of contents:
CASINOS covers hotel/casinos here in Las Vegas with a brief review about each. This might help if you have a few to choose from before you book a reservation.
SHOWS is what you would expect - a mention of a few long-running shows here in Las Vegas and a few must-sees while you are in town.
FOOD - well, ya gotta eat, and this city is famous for those all-you-can-eat buffets. Here is a list of the best buffets in town, as well as a few restaurants - some are not exactly cheap, but you usually get what you pay for.
CHEAP THRILLS - if you are on a budget, or just want to see some things and kill some time, check out this section.
SEX - usually the first section people look at (hey, I track what you people click onto!) but if you want to know what is going on in Vegas that should most certainly stay in Vegas, click here - as if I need to suggest it.
MISC. - just a little bit of info that might be of interest to people coming here the first time, or even for people who have been here a few times but might find interesting. Same info I give to friends coming into town.
CONTACT - so just who is this lunatic, DMark, and how do I contact him to put him into my will? Click here to learn more!
"What Happens In Vegas, Stays In Vegas"
Just as a footnote, Las Vegas has tried to distance itself from this wildly popular ad campaign.
The reason is that too many people started to think that was the purpose of coming to Vegas - to do something that should stay here. On weekends, jail cells are chock full of idiots who thought "anything goes" in Vegas, and you can get away with anything. That would be wrong.
Yes, you can walk down The Strip legally drinking alcohol - no need for that silly brown paper bag to hide that beer or whatever. And yes, prostitution is legal in Nevada - but NOT in Clark County (greater metropolitan Las Vegas). Pot and coke and the other party drugs are as illegal here as they are in most places. Casino security makes guards at Guantanamo seem like nice guys and they don't put up with nonsense - so trashing your room or peeing in the fountain might be fun for a second, but hopefully one of your friends has bail money.
"What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas" seemed like a fun ad campaign at the time. Nobody knew it would become a mantra for idiots with a tad too much money to spend, and the new right-of-passage for every 21st birthday party - male or female.
Luckily, most people come here and see a show, eat too much at the buffets, plop an extra few bucks in the machines they might not have planned on plopping, see the sights, have a great time and then go home.
But some people come ready to party-hearty and drink that 25th shot, snort that line, put on their slutwear or call the phone number from that porno flyer they got on the street to get Bunny to come to their room later and and let's just say it usually doesn't end well. Should any of you be near the somewhat dismal Downtown area by day, take a walk about three blocks in any direction - you will see one bail bondsman's office after the next after the next. They do a nice business and my guess is they are the biggest fans of "...stays in Vegas".
This website was created and designed by me - it is gaudy, kitschy, tacky, loud, obnoxious and an affront to anybody with even a modicum of taste and refinement - gee, kind of like this city.
Welcome to my Las Vegas!
