Las Vegas And The Defunct Klondike Hotel Welcome The NBA

The NBA and their fans are in Las Vegas this weekend for the All-Star game. Adidas is advertising heavily on taxis as well as entire sides of buildings. And the Klondike hotel which closed in June 2006 has taken life again (sort of) as a parking lot for vehicles with NBA permits.

The Klondike Hotel is just past the Welcome To Fabulous Las Vegas sign, and has been closed for about 8 months. Since closing, it has mostly sat dark and fenced in.

The fence has been opened again this weekend so that the parking lot can be used for "NBA Authorized Access - Permit Required."

An odd sort of honor for The Klondike, as it sits long closed, and awaiting it's eventual and apparently delayed destruction.
