Insert Coins, the new video game bar on East Fremont, is wholly different from every other bar and club in Las Vegas. And here is why: It’s the one place in the city where nobody is looking to get laid. And it’s incredibly refreshing in that respect.

I was better. Nobody could beat me—and there were some serious gamers there.
