Phil: “I just love the lights of Rack City.”

Chuck: “Yeah, man, I just moved down from Reno and Rack City is the bomb. The biggest little city in the world’s got nuthin’ on this place.”

Phil: “No shit, man, I couldn’t live anywhere else.”

Chuck: “Maybe when you’re older and want to get some shut eye once in a while!”

Rack City refers to the racks that hold the chips on the gambling tables. The term Rack City refers to Las Vegas as a party town and so when you say Rack City you are mostly talking about downtown and “the strip” and not the Las Vegas metropolitan area in general.
