E-425: Natural Selection

 Random Vegas

The International, better known as the Hilton and currently known as Westgate, was specifically designed to attract families and conventioneers

  • It offered a supervised youth camp of sorts to keep the kids occupied so the adults could do what they wanted

Twitpic of the week

It’s been considered the worst eye sore in Vegas history, similar to its predecessor the Landmark.  The big blue building known as Fountainbleau, then various other names as new ownership groups attempted to rebrand the property while not making any actual progress to finish the project, is now officially the Fountainbleau again.  Its progress to completion is easily visable to the eye and once again, north strip has a pulse.  Signage has been installed and the original owners are once again the driving force behind this project.  @meltzVegaspicture shows progress and the signage reinforces that she is coming in the 1st quarter of 2023.  Led by the people who dreamed her up, its exciting to know that the original visionaries are at the wheel again, 15 years after breaking ground on the project.
