    Off-strip

    Hello,

    I would like to know what does "off-strip" mean here:

    "He had just punched out from his job as a food-and-beverage shift supervisor at Sam's Town, an off-strip gambling hall that caters to locals. The parent corporation has casino properties all over the U. S.--meaning lots of future career options if he plays his cards right, so to speak."

    Thank you.

    Re: Off-strip

    "The strip" in many cities refers to the main street of shops, casinos, nightclubs etc (or whatever that particular part of town is known for). An "off-strip" business is one which is in a different street, perhaps a side-street.
    A stretch of one particular street in Las Vegas is known as The Strip and it contains all the most well-known casinos/hotels. See here.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Oh, that makes sense. Thank you.
