Las Vegas Doors

Every two years for the last decade of so I’ve been attending a major trade show in the industry I work in that’s held in Las Vegas.

Earlier this week while booking my flight and hotel for this year’s edition, it jogged my memory that I might have a few share-worthy doors captured on previous trips.

I’m hoping to find the time for a doorscursion while I’m there later this summer, but for now here’s what I found in my archives for this week:

Now I know who to call if I get into trouble

All you need is…

And it may lead you to this place:

What happens in Vegas…

I don’t remember which hotel this was in but the entrance to this ladies’ fancy/frilly underthings store sure had an original way to draw visitors in.

Honey humored me and was actually willing to take this one. However she did spend the next hour or so frowning and shaking her head at me.

Of course we had to peek, but since almost everything is fake in Vegas, all we saw was the website address for the store 😦

Note: Sorry but again this week I will be out of touch for most of the day on Thursday, so I’ll be slower than usual in answering comments and getting around to everyone’s posts, but will visit your post as soon as I can.

As always, thanks so such for visiting 🙂

  2. What a fun post! I’m pretty sure the males in my house would have wanted to recreate that last photo. LOL.

    These are fun and bright doors I missed. I love the bus with the Beatles since doors are cool in transportation, too. 🙂
    My favorite picture was the quaint older wedding chapel. Not as glitzy as some you see. . .
    There was some stuff going on the week you posted this. Thanks, Norm for continuing to visit and like my posts, anyway.
    My cousin and her husband moved out here when in their fifties. (Ten or so years ago) She was able to get a fantastic job in a school; while in Ohio it was average pay and not well supplied. I have yet to visit them and would love to go, just once at least!
    My artist brother painted Egyptians and hieroglyphics in the Luxor (pyramid shaped) Hotel. He actually feel from very high scaffolding there, too. Oh, the stories he hasn’t told me, I’m sure I would frown like your dear wife! 😀

  5. This is so out of character for your, Norm, but thank you for the chuckle. Love the Bail Bonds matching building and truck, and no one, not even you, could resist a peek at that.sign. 🙂

    Love these photos, Norm. Most especially the very first one. I’ve never been to Vegas but I do remember my parents visited on their trip to the States back in the mid seventies — my Mum thought she was very daring to go to such a place! (Back then New Zealand was even more isolated than it is now.)

  8. Cool post this week because I went to Las Vegas back in Jan. It was my first time flying and my first time there. I want to go back to Las Vegas someday.

    Ha! Honey’s a good sport, even though her head must’ve ached from shaking it at you for an hour. Nice choices this week!

    Great array of doors as always. I would love to see that Cirque de Soleil show but I don’t think its going to tour. I read that they built a theatre especially for it.

    I think I saw this wedding chapel in movies, but had no idea it was in Las Vegas! We passed Las Vegas several times, on the way to Utah (Bryce Canon and Zion Nat park). So, I took some pics of the high rises along the road, while hubs was driving, and posted a gold looking tower. When I did, I immediately got two negative comments.
    Was puzzled why these otherwise positive people turned on me, but a few months later, I understood this was the Trump tower. Kind of chuckled, because in my innocence (I had no idea who T was) I had touched a very sticky subject.

      Thanks. Now that you mention it I do remember seeing that chapel, or one that’s similar in a movie.
      Vegas is fun for short trips. The sights and the shows make it interesting even though I don’t gamble.

  22. What a cheerful Thursday Doors you’ve posted this week, Norm. I love that Pay Less truck, fabulous colour. Interesting doors to that ladies underwear store. See if you can find a similar one to a men’s kilt store and report back as to what is really worn underneath. 😉

    Sorry to have bothered you, I have got it sorted now. All doors in Vegas are open to encourage entry for the punters.

    I think you could call these Essential Doors of Vegas. The way you put them in sequence made me smile. The bail bonds photo really is spectacular. Good advertising on their part, good capture on yours.
    🙂

      Thanks Joey. “Essential Doors of Vegas is an apt description. You’d think that with all the grand hotels there’d be gorgeous doors aplenty but most are just boring commercial glass ones, so this has been the best that I’ve found so far.

    I have never been to Vegas. Trade shows, conferences, our company’s policyholder meetings have all been there, but I’ve managed to escape. Good that you check out the bail bondsman first. You never know, trespassing for door photos has been known to occur.

      Vegas is fun for short visits. What’s tough for me is the fact that they hold this show during the worst of the summer heat.
      I’m hoping I never need to be bailed out because of a doorscursion but hey, you never know 😉

  26. The red truck and its photo are my favorite, but the underwear store is, as Joanne says, tacky but clever. Have a great week. I look forward to the photos, but better you there than me! 🙂

    These are great! This is the first time I’ve ever felt an interest in going to Las Vegas. The red truck and building is a fabulous photo – and the website up the skirt is really quite hilarious.

      Thanks Susi. For me the best thing about Vegas is its proximity to the Grand Canyon. All the same the Vegas strip on a busy night is something to see, just for the people-watching 🙂

    I laughed out loud about the website printed underneath. Clever. Tacky … but that’s what I would expect from Vegas 😀
