Holy Cow Casino Was Here - Las Vegas Construction August 2014

Holy Cow Casino used to exist at the northeast corner of Sahara and Las Vegas Boulevard.  Following that Ivana Trump had a sales office on that site for a high rise which was never built.  (Just as well, it would have been like building a skyscraper on the footprint of a 7-11.)

Something is being built there right now, however, as can be seen in the photos of the construction framework.  The photos from top to bottom rotate south to show the geographical relationship to SLS Las Vegas which is due to open later this month.

Here is a link to an old post of mine in which I covered the demolition of the building which was Holy Cow Casino.

Las Vegas - During Leisurely Walking

TI (Treasure Island) Las Vegas.  Construction of a 3 story retail structure which is reported to be open later this year.

From Breakfast Cereal To MGM Grand Hakkasan DJ Superstar

Am I the only one who remembers the delicious breakfast cereal this dude used to make?  The commercial was catchy.  A is for afro, J is for Jacks, ... toasty afrojacks.  They were the best.

Well apparently Afrojack has moved on to bigger and better things as he is now a DJ superstar and appearing at Hakkasan at MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

SLS Las Vegas Outdoor Chandeliers

SLS Las Vegas.  A few more shots as they get ready for grand opening next month.  Simple chandeliers in front.  Looks okay.  As for those large picture frames, it would be cool if one was left empty in homage to the tv show Friends.
