This episode goes off-script as we bring you a panel discussion featuring five downtown casino bosses.

These are some of the players who make downtown Las Vegas what it is, and what it will be: Jonathan Jossel (Plaza), Seth Schorr (Downtown Grand), Derek Stevens (The D, Golden Gate), Jim Sullivan (Fremont) and Joe Woody (El Cortez).

The host of the discussion is Patrick Hughes, President of Fremont Street Experience. That's where we work as our day gig, btw.

Enjoy a virtually host-free installment of the Vital Vegas Podcast, and not just because we're hung over and too lazy to do a regular episode. Probably.
