The city of Las Vegas has a long and storied history.
It’s one of the best things about this one-of-a-kind town. The entire operation began as the wild idea of a dreamer. The fact that this particular dreamer was a murderous gangster is beside the point – he did have a good idea. It took a while for that idea to catch on of course. By the time Las Vegas got traction and became a hot-spot for the wealthy and powerful, the dreamer had been murdered by his fellow gangster because they thought he squandered their money. He was right, and Vegas grew into an empire that he never got to appreciate. Las Vegas has a thousand tragic and amazing stories like that, which is what makes it so fascinating. You know what else makes Las Vegas a great place? The gambling, and the drinks, and the insane strains of cannabis they sell in local dispensaries. I went to a history museum on the outskirts of Las Vegas, and they had a bar inside. Even when you are learning about the local history of Vegas, you can still party! I spent four hours trolling through every room of the museum, soaking in the native culture and learning all about the first days of Las Vegas, all the while getting a nice buzz from rum cocktails. From there I went back towards the strip, making a quick stop at a cannabis dispensary to pick up some more party favors. I was tempted to visit the Las Vegas public library, just to see if it had a bar, too!
