Pool-hopping in the time of Metro raids
Thu, Sep 17, 2009 (midnight)
Our two visiting girlfriends sat near a promoter on the plane to Vegas. Before liftoff, they were on the list for Moorea, the adult pool at Mandalay Bay. Or so they thought.
Not on the list, the bouncer barked. We ogled topless frolicking wonders while he explained that we couldn’t even pay to get in, unless we were hotel guests. The rule was one day old, enforced the weekend after a bust for alleged narcotics and prostitution activity at Rehab at the Hard Rock Hotel. For the first time in Las Vegas history, hot girls who wanted to take their tops off were turned away.
The Pond at Green Valley Ranch, however, was happy to take us. They offered choice lounges and free pasties (per Henderson law). Adorably, the pasties matched the chairs: yellow and red stripes, for those who can’t see the furniture for the double-Ds.
