E-350: Would You Rather?


Random Vegas 

The fire spewing mantas at Container Park took 500 hours to design and 3,000 to construct.  When fully extended, it is 40 feet tall and 30 feet wide and spews flames as high as 6 stories. (Container Park Signage) 


Twitpic of the week 

A familiar view with a very different landscape than we have today.  What was once the Dunes is now Bellagio.  MGM is Bally’s, Barbary Coast is Cromwell, Flamingo Hilton is just the Flamingo and Caesars footprint is vastly expanded.  What we are reminded of is how far we’ve come, how much she’s grown, evolving into the mecca she is today.  Thank you @Summacorp for another trip down memory lane, or for showing a time I missed but fondly imagine

Random Vegas

Frank “Lefty” Rosenthaul convinced the Nevada legislature to allow sports books in casinos in 1975.  Stardust was the first to have one on the strip. (

Twitpic of the week

The Gambler on the Mirage marquee, Harrah’s with the steamboat motif and Sands featuring Wayne Newton.  Yep, this is a picture of a different time in Vegas, brought to you by Treasure Island and @ZotaraMichael.  The reflection from the window reminds one of late night adventures and double vision challenges.  All signs of an epic night in Las Vegas.
