E-331: Yodaed It

Random Vegas
When Vegas was still establishing itself as the entertainment capital of the world, periodically operators would page celebrities, even ones not actually at the property, just so patrons could hear their name inside the property. (Las Vegas: Behind the Tables) 

Twitpic of the week

@classiclasvegas reminds us of another time in Vegas.  I won’t say it was a better time but a more whimsical one.  The MGM Lion Entrance might be the pinnacle of the family friendly movement.  A movement that was not wrong but it became a distraction once it became the focus.  Never forget, Vegas is about having experiences you can’t have any place else.  Where the newest is typically the coolest which means a theme runs the danger of becoming dated.  It may have not been a better time, but its still a time lost and missed.
