E-345: Sympotico

 Random Vegas

Brilliant! @Neon Museum uses the largest augmented reality experience of its kind designed using 24, 3D sound speakers and 8 projectors emitting a total of 80,000 lumens of light to illuminate unrestored, no-working signs in the north gallery (@NeonMuseum)

For the first time in 40 years, Fremont St has a new casino.  Circa, from the minds that brought you the D and Golden Gate, comes a game changer for downtown.  Strip quality amenities aren’t new to Fremont but innovation that moves the needle this much has been missing for a long time.  Brought to you in a way that only @Maverickheli can, Circa is the culmination of the Steven’s groups impact on the area, rebuilding Glitter Gulch as they see fit; and when you see the results, who are we to argue.

History gets me every time.  Especially when its epic and I’m pretty sure @VitalVegas knows that.  Look at the size of the former racetrack at Caesars Palace.  I realize golf courses take up this much land and more all the time but it really captures the imagination when you see something else in a similar scale.  Today this land is home to the Mirage and the Forum Shops.  If you look close you can see the Flamingo has its 2nd hotel tower fronting the strip.  Knowing that will also help to orient you.

Aerial bliss capturing the warm glow of gold, blue and green.  
@MaverickHeli, hovering over the strip like a Guardian of hope, of opportunity.  Available to all who are bold enough to simply try.  Just pick your game of chance and push the button.  Unless of course you play table games in which case, do whatever it is that you do.  In any case, Good Luck
