But on the second visit, in the late afternoon, we sat at the bar and began sampling...

  • New M Casino Modern Chic Oasis
    The newest addition to the Las Vegas hotel scene is the M Resort Casino Spa, a modernistic, drop dead gorgeous oasis palace of hip pleasure with spacious expanses of marble, structured amber glass and lofty ceilings. First thoughts are why such a trendy palace so far from the Strip?  But on second thought, the M lies at the gateway to Las Vegas when traveling on the...
