How do you explain the 70s without saying a word?  Like @pixvegas777 does with this week’s winner.  A postcard that captures the Stardust in all her mobbed up glory.  There are always people who mourn the loss of a Vegas property but I think it goes beyond that with the Stardust.  The closing of the Stardust was one of the biggest mistakes in Las Vegas history.  And what is replacing it isn’t going to be better than what Stardust was.  It will be more expensive and fancy but not better than the strip with the Stardust.  Thankfully much of her glory is still alive today at the Neon Boneyard.

It’s like a reset button.  No matter how things were at the tables the previous day, as the sunrises so does opportunity, oblivious to the past.  The mind begins to plot out your new day and the excitement returns as soon as you are conscious.  Moving from one property to another, a warm glow caresses the skin while the air is still fresh and crisp.  @davidcharns shares ethereal imagery, infinite possibility; Las Vegas.  Simply said, complex to define.
