E-402: Gambley

Random Vegas 

After the Cosmopolitan deal is complete, MGM Resorts will control 40% of all the hotel rooms on the Vegas strip (@LasVegasLocally) 

Twitpic of the week 

It’s a version of the Flamingo that virtually no one remembers or at least does not get talked about.  It’s the motel version of the property that existed just before Hilton started building the high rises we know the property to have to this day.  That evolution began with the erection of the famous plumb signage.  A sign that would be removed during the property's expansion of the casino to the sidewalk. The image, shared this week by @PixVegas777, isn’t the most visually appealing property on the strip during its time but its an important building block in the evolution that made the Flamingo Fabulous.
