The public has spoken, and the second casino to be relegated to the BZA Blacklist is Stratosphere. This was not a difficult pick, as the nearest casino to it will be shuttered. The Stratosphere boasts the largest tower in Vegas, and you can go to the top of it for the price of a steak and egg dinner. It's only a deal if you are a guest (we aren't) or if you buy a buffet or show tickets (we won't). Games at the Strat are no bargain either. In fact, of all the games to tout in the casino, the Stratosphere chooses the one with the worst odds - keno.
Each visit to Stratosphere is the same. Head upstairs to the elevator to find that it is too expensive. Head to the tables to find that blackjack pays 6/5. Say no thank you to the keno runner. Go outside to find that you are in the middle of nowhere. Notice that I never mentioned drink service.
You can see the tower from miles away, and that's where BZA will be on June 3.
