Our Annual Cowboy Makeover in Vegas Seven

I had such a busy day yesterday I couldn’t share this, but I’ve got what I think is a fun Green Felt Journal in this week’s Vegas Seven. It’s all about cowboys:

There’s still a perceptible drop in demand, which is why many casinos save major public-area renovations for the November-to-Christmas lacuna—witness the projects on the casino floors of both Wynn Las Vegas and the Venetian.

But there is one event that thaws the December chill, National Finals Rodeo, which continues through Dec. 10 at the Thomas & Mack Center. Since 1985, the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association’s big championship has been a major draw, with more than 170,000 spectators over the event’s 10-day span.

This was fun to write–I’m fascinated by the way Las Vegas remakes itself to suit whoever’s in town. If I wanted to be pretentious (or at least have pretensions towards being articulate), I’d say we’ve got a protean metropolis here.
