There are so many new bars and restaurants opening and there new casinos and attractions bringing people to the area that things in Downtown Vegas are beginning to get out of control.

It’s always exciting when a new casino opens its doors. The grand opening of Downtown Grand isn’t for another couple weeks (11-12-13) but they decided to have a soft opening to work out some of the kinks. The only kinks I ran into at Downtown Grand was the awkward valet and parking and 80 MPH
