Where in the World Wednesday: 9.14.11

Welcome back to Where in the World Wednesday!

The concept is simple:
We: Provide a riddle in the form of a haiku.
You: Try to guess the city described. Post your guess in the comments section. 

Easy, right?

Later this week, the answer will be posted. Whoever guesses first gets a special shout out.

And, here we go! 

Bright lights, big city
     Visit the world on one street
          Try: Win, Lose or Draw.

WHERE IN THE WORLD ARE WE?

Give up? Scroll down for the answer….












keep going…












almost there!











This week we’re in Las Vegas, Nevada!

Looking for an explanation?

Bright lights, big city: Refers to Elvis’ legendary “Viva Las Vegas.”

Also refers to the brightly lit Las Vegas Strip.

Visit the world on one street: Refers to the infamous Las Vegas strip.

There you can travel around the world (Egypt- Luxor, Italy- Bellagio and Venetian, France- Paris, New York- New York, New York), through time (Caesar’s Palace) and through literary lands (Excalibur, Treasure Island).

 

Try: Win, Lose or Draw: Refers to Vegas’ reputation as a gambler’s paradise. (Try not to spend it all in one place!)


Congrats to this week’s winners:

    Clearly Vegas.

    1) First line is from Elvis Presley's “Viva Las Vegas”

    2) Las Vegas Boulevard (The Strip) has hotels with Italian, French, Egyptian and other historical and cultural themes.

    3) “Win, Lose or Draw” is a reference to gambling, one of the lifebloods of Sin City.
