The Only "D" A Teacher Could Love

Main St Construction - Las Vegas

Construction on Main St in the vicinity of Fremont St Experience has it down to one lane in each direction, as well as altered pedestrian crossings.

One will do better to take Las Vegas Blvd to Fremont.

Holy Cow Casino Will Be Walgreens

The site of the defunct and razed Holy Cow Casino is being constructed into a Walgreens. This is at the northeast corner of Las Vegas Blvd and Sahara.

SLS Hotel & Casino is now open on the southeast corner. As well, Bonanza gift shop (which is not open 24 hours) remains open on the northwest corner. The southwest corner continues to remain unimproved.

SLS Las Vegas - Where Are The People?

SLS Las Vegas is open for business. On a recent morning the outdoor bar as well as traffic circle seemed rather empty.

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.

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.

Pawn Shop Live At Riviera Las Vegas

Pawn Shop Live being advertised on a billboard on Paradise, and the front side of Riviera looking south on Las Vegas Boulevard.

Westgate - LVH - Hilton - International

The sign is being changed from LVH (Las Vegas Hotel) to Westgate.  Before LVH it was Hilton.  Prior to that it was International.

Is Westgate a good name to use?  Although it is a company name, it lacks personality and has potential for confusion.

Westgate sounds like it is something which is part of something else.  Such as the west gate of a parking lot.  Or an airport terminal reference.

To those politically minded it may resonate phonetically with Watergate.

Southland corporation was okay with their convenience stores being 7-11 and not Southland convenience store.

Since Paradise is the main road in front, did anyone consider calling it...

Good luck Westgate, cleared for takeoff.

The Steak House At Circus Circus Las Vegas

Circus Circus is one of the few themed Las Vegas places which has opened, stayed open, and maintained it's theme.  As well the advertising for their steak house has me hungry.
