    It’s a view I’m thrilled I was able to have @360Vegas Vacation 11 before we lose the iconic property that started the greatest revolution in Las Vegas gaming.  Virtually everything we have in Vegas today is thanks, in some part, to the Mirage.  I’m sure people who loved the Sands felt the way I feel about losing the Mirage, specifically that volcano.  While a guitar hotel does sound cool it doesn’t add an “only in Vegas” attraction.  The more market continues to gentrify itself the less special a place Las Vegas will become.  Despite still drawing crowds whenever it starts going off, some say this icons lifespan has come to an end.  Doesn’t matter if we agree or disagree with that, the fact of the matter is that we are going to lose her.  Sadly, even the Neon Museaum can’t save this icon.  So, much like a loved one with a terminal diagnosis, its time to enjoy the Mirage as much as you can before she erased from the famous Las Vegas strip.

    Was it the concept or the fact that it was run by a man who lived in the grey area between truth and misrepresentation? Bob Stupak would refer to it as technicalities.  Vegas World, shared in all her low rolling glory by @deadcolletti, showcases everything the Nevada gaming industry didn’t want associated with the city.  Try as the might, the only thing that would get Stupak out of the market was his own ambition to build Stratosphere, residing in the space were Vegas World used to exist.

    How this view, shared by @maverickheli, doesn’t attract people to Vegas is another reason why I don’t get people.  What more could you want?  Almost any vice you can find legally is available at a person's disposal. Food, booze, gambling, smoking, girls to your room are just a few things that can be enjoyed by all if they are so inclined.  For me its simple, there is no better view of the strip than the one from a Cosmo balcony while having sex on it.  Undisputable.

    No matter what you think about Caesars Palace its undeniable that it’s a Vegas icon.  True it’s a discombobulated maze cobbled together over years of expansion and renovation, but from the beginning, it drew the masses eager to feel like a Caesar.  Sarno blocks evolved into more appropriately accurate roman architecture, enhancing the theme.  Today, Caesars is a behemoth in the market, attracting high and low rollers alike, lets never forget is origins, show cased here by @_GrandPaD of the property in 1981, visually stunning

    It’s a version of the Flamingo that virtually no one remembers or at least does not get talked about.  It’s the motel version of the property that existed just before Hilton started building the high rises we know the property to have to this day.  That evolution began with the erection of the famous plumb signage.  A sign that would be removed during the property's expansion of the casino to the sidewalk. The image, shared this week by @PixVegas777, isn’t the most visually appealing property on the strip during its time but its an important building block in the evolution that made the Flamingo Fabulous.

    The first Vegas resort to have topless showgirls was The Dunes. (@  POVblog)


     
    Twitpic of the week 





    A single, solitary sultan, standing astride on top of a roof, hands on hips, somehow intimating that he has a large cock.  That last part may be my own inferiation but lets not open that can of worms or acknowledge the fact that I may have just made up a word.  Regardless, this marquee was a bad ass monument to a remarkable gambling den.  The Dunes would later replace said sultan with the iconic turret sign.  The sultan was then relocated to the golf course on property, near the freeway exit until it had an electrical fire destroy it beyond repair.  Which is a shame.  How cool would the sultan be at the Neon Museum.  We, we can only daydream about what could have been.  Thanks to @summacorp for sharing a picture that inspired a monologue.

My Escape!

I’m not a review writer. I have been listening to this podcast for years. The host(s) have the same love hate relationship with Las Vegas that I have. If you find the Vegas casino business news entertaining this is your best resource. Under the influence commentating adds the spice. I’m not sure the hosts know this but the hour or so once a week podcast is my escape from are crazy world we live in. Give this a few listens and you won’t be let down.

A perfect balance of crap talking & Las Vegas history

I started listening to this show because I was planning my first trip to Vegas, this was in the Fall of 2019. But I got hooked on the show because of hilarious friendly banter between Mark & Brian (old episodes). My first trip was planned for the last week of March 2020... annnnd of course that was ruined by covid. Still haven’t been to Vegas but I have not missed a single new episode of this show since and am still working my way through the older episodes, once I’m fully caught uo I plan to subscribe to the Patreon. Mark & Keren’s back and forth teasing reminds me a lot of me and my husband, Mark’s laugh reminds me a lot of mine and Tony, well, Tony is just hilarious. And even with all those amazing hosts, they’ve managed to have a lot of other great hosts intermittently over the years, especially the episodes with Vital Vegas. It’s gonna be a while before I’m able to reschedule my trip, as I don’t want to have to wear a mask my first trip out but it is VERY safe to say that it’s going to be an EPIC first trip thanks to all I’ve learned from these Vegas experts. Also, P.S., someone wrote in on a recent episode and asked what the Patreon subscribers should be called but shouldn’t they just be called Patrons?? Food for thought. Keep up the good work you guys!!!!

Great show.

I'm ashamed of myself for not leaving a review before now, I thought I had. Mark, Keren, and Tony show how much they love all things Vegas (besides circus circus) every week. I usually learn a thing or 2 and laugh way more than that.
