Wait. Vegas casinos are charging for parking now? F**k that!!!


Why Vegas? – wait, I know why ($) – but dammit, Vegas, I thought we had something special. I was wrong.

If you have not heard, MGM Resorts’ 12 properties along the Strip are going to start charging for overnight parking. Via LA Times:

“The pricing is going to be modest. It will not exceed $10 a night for self parking,” Clark Dumont, a senior vice president, said. He wouldn’t say how much people can expect to pay for valet parking.

The charges will impact guests at Aria, Bellagio, Circus Circus, Delano, Excalibur, Luxor, MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay, the Mirage, Monte Carlo, New York-New York and Vdara.

The big unknown is whether other big players along the Strip will begin charging for parking now that MGM Resorts has opened the door.

Hopefully, they won’t.

Here is the deal, Vegas, because it seems like you forgot:  We all have no problem at all dropping our hard earned money on your slots, tables, hotel rooms, strippers, bars, golf courses, shops, restaurants, roller coasters, cabs, clubs, pool parties, shows, and even those awful “resort fees” that should really just be included as part of the daily room rate.  But, that has always meant that we could have at least one free thing:  our damn car left in your parking garages at no cost.

But now, well, now you have dicked us on this.

Not cool at all, Vegas.

Let’s just all go to Laughlin instead.
