E-471: Dick Doesn't Make Sense

 Random Vegas

A typical arcade game makes about as much per day as a typical slot machine (Vital Vegas)
Twitpic of the week
Here @summacorp shares a time before the Golden Nugget consumed all of its western casino competition to acquire the Fremont footprint they have today. It was also the initial incarnation of their greatest exterior fa├žade with the bullnose corner of Fremont and 2nd St, known today as Casino Center Blvd. Knowing what it would become it looks kind of cute. Especially next to what was, for a time, the tallest sign on Fremont St at Lucky Casino standing at 153 feet high. Beyond that you can see the adorable Californian club ending the block the Nugget absorbed. If you really want to, you can also see Vegas Vic at the Pioneer Club and the Golden Gate marquees in the distance. All that to avoid looking at the high waisted gentleman in the foreground.
