Reflection.  Thoughtful contemplation or an oasis designed to treat one's self to some high-end cocktails while basking in the brilliance of a big titted neon sign.  That’s Vickie’s bar @Circalasvegas.  It's a place where you can do both, inspired by the aforementioned.  Once again, here is to another opportunity to create lasting memories, even if those memories become foggy the longer you are creating them.

PCP - 360 Vintage Vegas: Boyd Gaming

*Premium Content Preview

Sam Boyd was a gambler at heart.  Once he discovered his passion for games of chance, he studied them feverously, learning that in every game, the advantage was always in the houses favor.  So Sam decided the best way to gamble was to be the house.  And that’s how his career in gaming began.  Sam’s son Bill was encouraged from a young age to get an education.  So he did and became a lawyer but eventually the father and son would join forces and become a team that grew into one of the most respected gaming companies in the world.  Factor in their inherent desire to do the right thing and give back to the community, and you instantly start to suspect there’s more to the story than what you’re being told.  But dig as deep as you like, there’s no more.  The story of Sam, Bill and Boyd Gaming may be one of the greatest American success stories in history and overwhelming proof that sometimes, nice guys finish first.
