    Interesting. For the record, there is no required bar closing time in the State of Nevada, and large numbers of bars in Vegas and Reno are open 24/7.

    You are missing my point. I was at home and went wandering to a bar only a block away. The Vegas residents would have to drive from the suburbs to go anywhere It's not about closing time. It's about living in an awesome place.

    I started this thread way back when me and all my friends would find ourselves saying, wow, Miami is AWESOME. Stuff that happens here wouldn't happen anywhere else. I certainly have never gone wandering into a bar at 4am anywhere else, cos I never had a bar a) that was open, and b) that close by!

    True, sorry did not mean to detract. But note that in Miami also people would need to drive from the suburbs. The number of people sleeping within walking distance of an all night bar in Vegas is huge compared to Miami. Anyway, your experience is still interesting and something I have never done.

    Thats what we used to do when i lived in Vegas. Find ourselves up at like 4am with nothing to do and decide to go to one of the casinos and play a little poker or something.

    ... and then after your 4am drink, you can walk to the beach and watch the sunrise over the ocean, try THAT in Nevada!

    As far as the suburbs go, don't the suburbs in Miami also have 5am closing times?

    Most of the bars in the burbs don't stay open that late because, well, it's the suburbs. Even Fox's is only open until 3 on the weekends. The 5 am thing seems mostly East of 95 and some strip clubs elsewhere.

    There's a blond girl in South Beach who rides around on her vintage Scwinn with high heels on. I've seen her three or four times at different times of the day, always with heels.

    Has anyone seen the skateboarding grandma? She is pretty awesome. Usually in South of Fifth, with a baseball cap on and her curly blue rinse hair sticking out! She looks about 70 yrs old, yet she zips around South Beach on that board.

    The bike riding in a dress look is pretty popular in South Beach.

    I've done that many times. It's no problem at all! The dress is more of the problem, especially if it is short!

    Don't give Steve Wynn any new ideas.
