Yep, when I was there last April it was pretty dire. House prices have plummeted and there is no work.Just missed this on ABC2, but it's repeated Tuesday night.
Ross Kemp: Extreme World (Las Vegas)
"When the recession hit in 2008, Vegas went from having the lowest unemployment figures to the highest in the States. It was ravaged by more foreclosures, bankruptcies and suicides than anywhere else in the country."

every time I've been to Vegas I've told myself to be sure to see Absinthe but dont get around to it every timeFor anyone going now, or in future, a reminder to see this great show:
You should be able to get $20 off tickets. Either from a guy near the box office or just ask for $20 off at the box office. Having already seen it, in my opinion, VVIP seats are definitely the way to go.
of course lots, but you'll have plenty of time between day 7 and novemeber to see itGot our schedule this week, looks pretty hectic. Looks like we are playing 1C, if that is the one on the Monday. If I get knocked out short of the $ I hope its freaking early, people are telling me there's a lot to see in Vegas.
I had a TV interview the other day and the journo asked me what chance I had, I said: "somewhere between no and fat" but they didn't put that bit to air. ha ha. It took a TV interview for me to realise what a fat head I have and that I should start to cut down on beer and pizza.of course lots, but you'll have plenty of time between day 7 and novemeber to see it
Five years later the Pokercast guys do another interview with Steve Cyr.Came across this 2+2 Pokercast episode which includes a fantastic interview with Steve Cyr:
For those who aren't familiar with the name, Cyr is something of a modern legend amongst Vegas casino hosts and the primary focus of the book Whale Hunt in the Desert (a book I highly recommend, by the way).
Interview starts at the 1:33.05 mark and goes for about 40 minutes.
