Twitpic of the week
While it’s true I have a well-documented dislike of Phil Ruffin and some of the things he has done to Treasure Island since taking it over, one thing that will never change is what part that property played in the evolution of my affection for Las Vegas. This picture, shared by @TIVegas, documents the view that changed everything for me. This view struck the match that would become the bonfire of love I have for Las Vegas, eventually evolving into the creation of this show. No matter what becomes of her, she will always have a special place in my heart.
