Strikers Picket In Front Of Palace Station Casino, Police Present




Las Vegas, Nevada
Palace Station Casino and Hotel

Saturday morning 1 February 2014

Police on horseback, foot, squad cars, and paddy wagon, are present in front of Palace Station Casino & Hotel as workers of the culinary union and bartenders union are on strike and picketing along Sahara.

The 7-11 on Sahara in front of Palace Station has police vehicles parked in their lot along the fence which separates Palace Station parking from the convenience store.

Inside Palace Station the only possible disruption observed was the absence of a hot dog concession in the sports book.  It is possible that one may not have been scheduled for today, yet past experience has led me to think that a fully packed sports book on a weekend, especially the day before the Superbowl often has the concession stand open.

Treasure Island - Let's Replace Sexy With A Mall



Treasure Island, (T.I.) Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada has seen fit to remove their most notorious attraction and replace it with a mall.

That's right, the sexy pirate battle Sirens of T.I. is no more.

As far as the bottom line I have no idea which will yield an extra few beans per year, but removing the pirate battle attraction has in my opinion only served to remove something which was perfectly suited for what it did.

The Sirens of TI was not a child's attraction.  It served well to gain publicity for Treasure Island, and also did well at getting people to enter T.I. at the conclusion of each performance.

As well, Sirens of T.I. set the theme and mood that this was a place for adult couples to come and have fun.

Replacing Sirens of T.I. with a mall is a dumb decision, which can only serve to help the hotel casinos on Fremont Street, by taking away one more reason for people to stay on LVB.

Las Vegas Construction - Barbary Coast, Bills, Gansevoort




Las Vegas, NV.  This structure at the northeast corner of Las Vegas Blvd at Flamingo was Barbary Coast, then it became Bill's Gamblin Hall & Saloon, then it was going to be called Gansevoort.

Recent issues have arisen which will likely mean it won't be named Gansevoort, however whatever the name is or will be, the construction goes on.

The large building next to Gansevoort is Flamingo.
