Riding this nostalgia thing about as far as possible, let’s discuss Las Vegas. The real Las Vegas. The old Las Vegas. The most fun Last Vegas.
Las Vegas was born on May 15th, 1905.
In 1925 Fremont Street (this place) was paved and called the Strip.
In 1931 the ban on gambling was lifted.
In 1933 Prohibition was lifted.
As old school as you want it to be. They offer a heroes discount for healthcare, educators, military and first responders.
Here’s a fact.
In this age of you’d better pay me or I’m walking, card and dice dealers are paid $12 and hour. They do make a lot in tips. Still, the amount of skill and knowledge it takes to run a table seems to be a lot more than the guy who asks, “would you like fries with that?”
What do I know?
