We believe that the market -- we generated since the since 2007 and then really audiences continues to grow.
And visitation is changed primarily from -- gaming markets more of a cross -- the food and beverage giant diamond hospitality so it's it's it's good -- Las Vegas -- -- we're concerned yes.

Seems to be catering to the twenty somethings as well as the nightclub -- every to -- was -- Prince Harry here at fact one of your clubs that but it wet republic.
But these these nightclubs generate up to eighty million dollars the top nightclubs that's an astronomical figure.
It absolutely is but I think most what Las Vegas is done -- has really been able to say this several demographics of people so.
