I don't believe any of the casino owners are the least bit interested in preserving anything but the wallet of the tourist! Remember what happened to the Dunes marquee? Rather than donating even the top portion, Steve Wynn had it imploded along with the hotel...he wanted nothing left of the Dunes. I...

My folks bought me Brix Blox which was the Sears version of Lego's. When I would go to my grandparent's house, I would play with my grandfather's 1920's era Erector Set in their walk-in toy closet. By the time I got to play with it, 50 years of uncles and cousins had lost important pieces so I could...

Green Shack Restaurant in Las Vegas, Demolished

I knew when the Green Shack closed, it would be neglected and then demolished even though it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1994. I wish I would have been wrong! It started when the restaurant that served hungry residents starting in 1930, closed its doors and auctioned ev...
