    I remember Vegas in the 70s and how magnetic it was. Couldn’t resist the place. Maybe OAP’s passing has me yearning for those times. There’s a few old timers here that remember those times. I know progress is inevitable, but they destroyed Vegas. Here’s to when it was a true gambling paradise on earth.

    I used to stay next door at flamingo but play in imperial palace.
    after playing craps or blackjack, Id sit in the keno lounge at 3 am and the cocktail waitresses would sit down and wed BS about kids and life.
    I stayed in imperial palace just once, didn't like the rooms. but they were better than stardust motel rooms.

    This is Barney,

    Most greatest topic. We are currently on road trip but the LID has very greatest numbers of such pictures taken last year before time shifting device blew up. Hopefully he can post when he gets back home to the supper computer.

    Thank you very much

    what I miss most of all in casinos, is the coffee shops, open 24/7, coffee shops like sunset station has, a counter, sometimes you just want a cup of coffee and something light, nice to sit at counter and get taken care of immediately.
    so few casinos have that, now its food courts and starbucks express.

    I always liked the Stardust, just something about the vibe there. The Lido was a great show. I remember one security guard there had a custom rig with a huge Colt Python. Ya got the impression, he knew how to use it.
