Las Vegas is defined by its live and let live attitude. The city has given all new meaning to the phrase over indulgence. You can gamble, eat, smoke, and drink until you heart is content. Drink, eat, and be merry might be good motto for Las Vegas.

chefs. Many aspiring performers have found a home in Las Vegas. Folks do what they have to, to make it in Las Vegas. A cab driver by day may work as a showgirl by night. It’s not surprising that many of the people around Las Vegas don’t look so healthy. However, most locals try to avoid the strip whenever possible.
