Perched on the 32nd floor, a heavily armed gunman broke through two windows to shoot concertgoers across Las Vegas Boulevard, killing nearly 60 people and injuring hundreds more in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. In the days and weeks after the attack, business looked slow at Mandalay Bay, and hospitality experts contended the hotel-c

It wasn't entirely surprising, as the company has been involved in several major sales over the past few months. The Mandalay Bay sale comes at an interesting time, though. A little over two years ago, this popular hotel-casino was the sight of the worst mass shooting in US history. Fortunately, the venue is moving past this tragedy. Today, we're going to look at why exactly MGM Resorts decided to put this property up for sale. Let's get into it!

A Traveler’s Guide to the Best Bets in Las Vegas - The New York Times A Traveler’s Guide to the Best Bets in Las Vegas - The New York Times Posted: 31 Jan 2020 02:00 AM PST I have spent a lot of money in Las Vegas, and I don't gamble much. I've paid $250 for a Cirque du Soleil ticket, taken a gondola down the faux canals of Venice for $60 and, on occasion, vastly exceeded my wine budget. Las Vegas thrives on convincing visitors to splurge, which I considered when Lady Gaga opened her concert residency at the Park Theater. Recently, tickets for the back-row center balcony were selling for $466 (fans in the front row were paying $2,500). Value, of course, is subjective.

Rooms, food, drinks and entertainment are increasingly important money makers for

This week: a romantic weekend in Paris (with a new baby). The total spent is at the bottom.   I spent the dawn of my 39th birthday enduring the final throes of a labour that had been induced 12 hours earlier. By 10:08 I had a brand new daughter snuggling in my arms, so it wasn't all bad, but it wasn't exactly the birthday I had planned. So when it came to my 40th a year later, I was calling the shots. We'll have plenty of opportunity to spend birthdays at Peppa Pig World or wherever else toddler obsessions take us. But this year, while the little one was
