I wish that more people in Vegas would pay attention to the history and not just be interested in what new cheezy gimmick casino there can be now---- does anyone really care if a casino looks like a pyramid or like a pirate ship?
Yeah, the last time I was in Vegas (Oct 2004), it was at "Lake Las Vegas", a new development on the outskirts which (at least at that time) was so totally anti-Vegas it was scary. (The place actually closed down (casino too!) and was dark in the middle of the night!) I didn't have the chance to get to the strip, so although I know they are tearing down the few remaining legendary casinos, I didn't get a chance to check out which ones still existed at that time. It's so sad, when you think of the history (good & bad).
