When I first heard of this adult-themed entertainment mecca I was a young child. The first images that I had seen were of showgirls in their extravagant headdresses, wearing rhinestones or sequin bikini-themed outfits. On television, their choreographed, in sync movements were classy. It drew you in, and even if you weren’t technically as rich as you looked on vacation, being entertained in that way sure did make you feel wealthy.
I grew to associate Las Vegas with making money. Many think of gambling, slot machines in particular. Aka losing money. Let’s not forget, gentlemen clubs. Giving away money. If these are things that you enjoy, so be it, live it up. But as a young teen, I then knew the probability of me getting rich from a slot machine or learning how to play poker and becoming a champion was slim to none.
I fantasized about having a piece of the pie. My thoughts of Las Vegas’ riches were composed of what it would be like to own a casino. Upon moving to Las Vegas, curiosity struck me and I Googled, “How much is Las Vegas worth?” I laugh now at the fact I thought there would be a direct answer as though there aren’t hundreds of thousands of enterprises connected to the city domestically, and globally.
Growing up in the largest economic state in the United States, California, you can’t criticize me too much for asking the internet such a question. See, my decision to move to Las Vegas wasn’t based on the televised images. Before moving I had been attending Oakland City Hall housing development and cannabis town hall meetings. Upon doing so, I learned much of what citizens were voting on had pretty much been decided years prior. Confirmation that it was then time for me to go.
Not knowing where I wanted to move to in the United States, I made an excel spreadsheet with a list of cities. I compared everything, from the weather, natural disasters, educational systems, pay rates, neighborhoods, racial demographics and anything else I felt was critical to know. I was leaving my sunny California beaches, and forest hiking trails. The waterfalls. The entertainment. The food. The diversity. Wherever I moved had to be worth it.
Las Vegas won. It was decided that I would migrate to Sin City. There was something about the city and its potential that was underway. And, many of my enjoyments could be found within the city or on a nice road trip to a neighboring state.
