Dice were flying, restaurants were jam-packed, and Las Vegas was filled with excitement on reopening weekend as Sin City returned after more than two months of shutdown due to concerns surrounding the coronavirus pandemic. The scene on casino floors was fantastic — at Venetian Las Vegas, gamblers cheered as they were welcomed at the entrances. At Caesars Palace, actors dressed as Caesar and Cleopatra sported face masks and joined forces with "Mr. Las Vegas" Wayne Newton to welcome back guests. It did look a bit different than the Las Vegas we have come to know and love. Gamblers and dealers wore facemasks and gloves, bartenders were adorned in face shields, and slot machines were repositioned in respect to social distancing. The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas also gave hotel guests takeaway bags with masks, sanitizer and other branded items. From all reports it seems that casinos are willing to do whatever it takes to keep their guests safe from the virus. I think as long as the properties in Las Vegas prioritize keeping guests safe the crowds will do nothing but grow and grow. I personally love the unmistakable energy of Las Vegas and cannot wait for my next visit. Hit Me!!!

Thousands of brave Americans have ventured into the Rocky Mountains for the past decade searching for a treasure chest filled with gold, rubies, emeralds and diamonds with an estimated value of over a million dollars. But that adventure has finally come to an end. The treasure has been found. Forrest Fenn, the 89-year-old fine art and antiquities collector who created the treasure hunt, made the announcement Sunday on his website. The treasure was found a few days ago somewhere in the Rocky Mountains by a man who did not want to be named. Fenn noted that the man was from "back East" and that he confirmed his discovery by sending Fenn a photograph of his newfound riches. How crazy. Clues leading to the treasure's location were included in a 24-line poem published in Forrest Fenn's 2010 autobiography "The Thrill of the Chase." Fenn estimated that as many as 350,000 people from all over the world went hunting for the treasure. Some quit their jobs to search for the treasure, and rumor has it that some had also died. Of all of the stories to come out lately, this one takes the cake. Just the simple fact that there has been a treasure hunt going on all of these years is astounding to me. Well congratulations to that anonymous man and his new found wealth. I think I should give Forrest a call and see if there is any other treasure out there. I could sure use the excitement and a few bucks…
