The Venetian?

Friends, I’ve been given free tickets to a U2 Sphere concert in January, along with a free Venetian suite. I dislike Vegas but love U2 so of course I’ll go.

Any opinions about the Venetian? Anything I should know?

Thank you!

Don't spend any money at the Venetian or Palazzo. Sands, the owner, contributes heavily to Republicans.

I like the Venetian main floor area. I was able to take that gondola ride with a singing gondolier. It was actually fun.

Sell it to someone else. Or, get into a place where you can ask Bono why he doesn't pay taxes.

I enjoyed the mall that was a part of it when I visited about 20 years ago. Bought a nice mini-lamp to give someone as a gift and had an excellent lobster sandwich.

I ate at Buddy V's (Cake Boss) restaurant (in the Venetian). The friend that I was with wanted to go.

If you do eat there, don't have cannoli for dessert, have the "lobster tail" dessert (cream-filled pastry, looks sort of like a lobster). It's much better than the cannoli.

So I should take the guns, leave the cannoli?

Venetian is a nice hotel.

It is a nice hotel. The main floor is actually really peaceful because of the fake sky on the ceiling.

It's my favorite hotel in LV, I think.

R1 = Rip van Winkle doesn’t know Sheldon Adelson is dead and the Venetian was sold.

Also the Venetian is kind of old Vegas tacky, Palazzo is more elegant.

I've never been to Vegas, but now I want to go stay at the Venetian!

It smells like rose water and I HATE THAT SMELL!

I went to Vegas once with a boyfriend. He has/has a hairy back.

No Venetian has that chemical water smell that the Pirates of the Caribbean has.

Bullet proof jacket keep the head covered too. Vegas has a lot of stray bullets.

If money is no object, I highly recommend Bouchon, one of the finest French restaurants in Las Vegas. It is a Thomas Keller eatery at the Venetian. It is not located among the other restaurants, but hidden away on the tenth floor as I remember. Reservations of course are required.
