Las Vegas SkyVue Ferris Wheel Construction

Ledcor Construction

The Happi Inn used to be here.  Now, instead, is an incomplete megalithic structure which gives the appearance that a little seismic activity is all that it would take.

Will this project be completed?

At present construction is halted.  A little while ago I read in the news that construction may resume by June 2013.  Very epic indeed.

[Friends, if you are unfamiliar with Las Vegas - be aware that there are two unrelated ferris wheel projects right now; this one, SkyVue, and Linq which is on the north side of the Flamingo.]

Here is a video from SkyVue Las Vegas which shows how the completed project might look.

Las Vegas Flashback - Stardust Hotel

Las Vegas, Nevada

A look back at the Stardust Hotel & Casino (no remains).  This was the street level crosswalk, across Las Vegas Blvd, to the north (sports book) side of Stardust.

Stardust was razed for Echelon, however construction on Echelon remains halted for years.

Vegas Hotel Customers Want Laid Not Caesar Paid

Las Vegas, Nevada

According to online news Caesars will begin charging (mandatory by them) resort fees at many if not all of their properties.  For the fee, customers will have telephone service in their room, use of the hotel's fitness center, and imagine this - internet access.

The fee will be 10 to 25 dollars a day.  I do not know if there are any specifications as to how many people in a room may be covered under the daily fee.

Among those mentioned were Caesars Palace Las Vegas, Rio, Paris Las Vegas, The Quad, and more.

Here is what I find obnoxious, supposedly a spokesman for Caesars Entertainment has said that as a result of surveys, it was determined that their customers wanted a package price as opposed to fees which are separate.

The statement does not address a comparison of whether or not their customers would prefer to pay anything at all as a fee, especially considering that so many people have telephone service and internet access right on their own cell phone or other similar device.

As well, I would be surprised if anything close to the majority of guests in Las Vegas use fitness centers during their stay in a Las Vegas hotel.

My experience as a human being has led me to conclude that most people do not use a fitness center at all.  I don't imagine that such people are likely to suddenly use a fitness center, even having been charged.

The only exercise that is probably on the minds of those having a vacation at a Las Vegas hotel, is getting laid in their room.

What they are going to be getting is screwed.

Las Vegas Aftermarket Twinkies?

Las Vegas, Nevada

Deep Fried Twinkies.  They actually look kind of good, especially the twinkie with the chocolate sprinkles.  Or is that a ham?

Whatever it is, they used to be available at Mermaids on Fremont St - maybe they still are, with an aftermarket twinkie.

Fontainebleau Las Vegas - How Was It Even Possible?

Las Vegas, Nevada

The remains of Fontainebleau, the only of the original 7 ancient wonders of the world to survive to present day.   Many Vegasologists believe that Fontainebleau was built as a hotel around 2550 bce.  Not everyone agrees.

If this was a hotel, how come no guest has ever been found?

Another theory put forth has been that it was a power plant which may have made use of the sun and wind.

In the center of the great structure a horizontal line can be seen which some claim is a water line.  Is it possible that Fontainebleau is much older than has been commonly repeated in academic circles?

Is it possible that Fontainebleau is evidence of a great flood?  If so, then how far back [antediluvian] was it built?  What methods did the ancients use to get such heavy beams so high?

It is as if the ancients were looking to the future to stump us as we look at Fontainebleau and ask, how was it even possible?

Las Vegas Blvd Shooting And Related Vehicle Explosion

Las Vegas, Nevada
Thursday 21 February 2013

A shooting from one car to another on Las Vegas Blvd and Flamingo early this morning has resulted in the deaths of at least 3 people.  As well in this incident, a taxi cab, possibly propane powered (unclear at present) blew up.

The accompanying photograph shows the intersection where this horrible incident occurred, and was taken approximately 12 hours earlier.

Here is a link to an article:

Las Vegas - All Shuttle's Canceled

Las Vegas, Nevada

This has got to be the simplest sign ever put up by a casino.  One sheet of what appears to be 20 lb printer paper, and two pieces of scotch tape, stuck to a rough outside wall surface.

All of the other signs regarding the closure of Bill's Gamblin' Hall & Saloon are professionally printed signs.  I suppose that someone must have failed to handle a sign for the shuttle bus displacement, until the close had taken effect.

So, for anyone shuttling in the area of Flamingo and Las Vegas Blvd be advised:

Shuttle buses which had a stop at Bill's Gamblin' Hall & Saloon will now run from Bally's on the north side entrance, which by the way happens to be the side which faces Bill's.

Closed Casino Floor - Bills Las Vegas

Bill's Gamblin' Hall & Saloon closed it's doors on 4 February 2013.  According to the signs on the outside of the building, an all new boutique resort will open in 2014.

This is a shot of the former casino floor with various items packed on pallets, and an electric pallet jack in front of the old cashier area.

To my fans and fellow bloggers who have written to me, and posted comments, thank you.  I feel good to make this post.  Happy 2013 from RoyVegas.
