Random Vegas

Twitpic of the week

Before massive LED signage, it was a simpler time.  A more labor-intensive time when it was maintenances job to change out light bulbs on a properties marquee sporting thousands of them on what must have been a daily occurrence.  A time when air was something to advertise as an amenity.   When hot as fuck light bulb signage was touchable by anyone simply willing to jump.  When marquees like the Lucky Strike Club were right in your face, hovering over you, drawing you towards its blinky brilliance while the clicking of the big six wheel just inside mesmerized the dumber gamblers among us.  Thank you @summacorp for sharing a time that I simultaneously love and yet wouldn’t have been able to survive in.  For those of you unaware, the Lucky Strike Club was located next to the Golden Nugget before if was purchased in1968 and integrated into the property.
