Coffees first coffee of the road trip and our last coffee of Priscilla's for 2020 unfortunately we'll be gone for three weeks but we'll be back probably January 2nd January 3rd and we'll have more of the of Priscilla's coffee it's best coffee in LA. You heard it here first but that's how you kick off your trip here into Toluca Lake all right well let's get it going I'm kind of sad maybe we should stay no let's get it going come on um but this the huge casinos these were developed actually by Wynn this is when the guy that developed this hotel he actually was one of the basically the the guys that developed a lot of the big casinos back in the 1980s and that's where Vegas changed from the mob ran smaller mom-and-pop basic casinos to large corporate ran casinos that's when the mob couldn't do it they couldn't money launder like they did leaving Vegas going into Nevada now we're going to Utah that's our next state yeah so this is the farthest either of us have ever been past Vegas driving so you could usually get on the 515 you think it's downtown Las Vegas and that's as far as you go now we're back on the 15 and we'll take this all the way into Utah then we're going to cut over on the 70. yeah now we're talking yeah this is massive! you're gonna kill that bag before the day is up.
