Ready For Shenanigans?

O'Sheas, The Quad, The Linq...

The real shenanigans is the confusing naming of these locations.  Real solid branding or shenanigans?

If you have never listened to the greatest Las Vegas podcast, take a trip over to the Five Hundy site and check out an episode.

Las Vegas Club - What Happened To The Casino?

Las Vegas Club at the west end of Fremont Street Experience has apparently made a good portion of their casino, a souvenir shop.  [Like Pioneer did.]

Las Vegas Modern Archaeology - Pioneer Club

As a result of construction, for a limited time certain aspects of Pioneer Club (which used to be a casino but is now a souvenir shop) are visible.  It's a small but unexpected blast from the past.

Downtown Container Park - Las Vegas, NV

Downtown Container Park in Las Vegas, Nevada.  It is diagonal from El Cortez.  Not a big place, but interesting.  This set of photos does not show the play area and tree house with slides which is in the center of the park.  I'll do a post on that in the future.

Grand Bazaar Shops - Las Vegas

Put on your seatbelts and hold the handrails...coming Fall 2014, lo half a year or less away, Grand Bazaar Shops in front of Ballys.

Some have said that it will be a good reason to use the side entrance, but those who do not mind walking the gauntlet of shop and stand proprietors will be happy.

Thank you for visiting

Ballys Las Vegas Construction May 2014

Las Vegas, Nevada

The front of Ballys being reconstructed for what I last heard will be a shopping area, apparently with trees.  I actually posted a few years ago that Ballys would eventually want to "make use" of their front area.

Thank you for visiting

High Roller Las Vegas

The High Roller Ferris Wheel at Linq in Las Vegas, Nevada.  It is actually a slow moving observation wheel.  One does not realize how large High Roller is until getting close to it; at which point taking photos becomes difficult or frustrating as capturing the entirety becomes impossible.
