The Times podcast: Las Vegas doubles down on reopening at full capacity
In 2019, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority estimated it hosted nearly 43 million tourists. Officials were expecting a record year for 2020, and the Nevada metropolis did set one … in the negative direction. Thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, barely 19 million visitors came to town — the lowest total in decades.
Today, restaurants and casinos will return to full capacity. If the move is successful, you’ll see a flip on the city’s tagline. What happened to Vegas won’t stay in Vegas. Our guests are Los Angeles Times national correspondent Kurtis Lee and Culinary Union Local 226 secretary-treasurer Geoconda Argüelo-Kline. Plus, a rant about loquats!
