Wealth still drives the night, and a chance to grab some of that wealth still draws visitors in droves, but The House still always seems to come out ahead.
While the natural world makes references to eras past for entertainment purposes, the supernatural world clings strongly to the jazzy golden age of Vegas. It’s one part Old World hospitality, one part territorial racketeering, a dash of neon lights, and a dash of sand, shaken (not stirred).
