    Perhaps we should return to the tried and true business model that put "Old Vegas" on the map: cheap or free rooms, food, drinks and shows; then make money on the gambling. Nowadays it costs a small fortune to come to Vegas for the weekend, and still the casinos are making far less profit per square foot (and with far higher overhead) than their vulgar, old fashioned predecessors of 30-40 years ago. Learn from history, guys!
