Where has all the fear and scare gone? Halloween used to be about dracula and vampires and witches when I was growing up. Now, like most things American, it is an over-commercialized party in which you just grab a last-minute "pirate" or "maid" costume from your nearest novelty store. Although I do love and appreciate the innovation and creativity some people use in putting together their costumes, I can't help but be reminded of Lindsay Lohan's character in Mean Girls: "In Girl World, Halloween is the one night a year when girls can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it." Trick or treat, indeed.

Having been going to Las Vegas ever since I was a young girl, I have seen the area transform from a gritty, gambling-centric mob-ruled city to the redevelopment of the Strip, full of excess and superabundance. The lavishness allows visitors to escape to a make-believe land, where they can have anything at anytime. Below are a couple snaps from the lobby of the Wynn, which personifies the intrigue and luxury. See you soon for another spontaneous trip, Sin City!
