I have never seen you post about what you do for a career on here.

You mind to tell what it is you do?

The big Dawg has posted numerous times about some of his escapades as a lawyer. I think he might also qualify as a stock trader as well. Then add his casino adventures and he can put food on the table.
What about you, MNL?

I have read most all of MDawgs posts over the past couple of years and cannot remember reading any of "his escapades as a lawyer." He has given some opinions but never "escapades." Maybe you could refresh my memory or maybe MDawg could link us.

Itís not my fault you canít remember. And not my job to scour through his over 7500 posts. Of course you miss the point. He is a lawyer and has made that clear numerous times.

Pay me $100 each and Iíll find you the examples you are looking for?

You did read my post, right? I did not dispute his being a lawyer as I posted "He has posted some opinions." You are the one that stated about some "legal escapades." Surely you can recall just one "legal escapade" to make your point valid. BTW you also might want to define "legal escape."

Got around to strolling (victory stroll wise 😅) through a couple of the other casinos in Stateline.

Mid-week, afternoon, even as the Celebrity Golf tournament commences, pretty empty.

The Golden Nugget (formerly the Hard Rock, formerly Horizon).

Bally's (formerly Montbleu, formerly Caesars' Tahoe), even more empty. All table games closed.



Lobby


on the right used to be a pretty cool bar, Cleo's, when this was Caesars' Tahoe.

New Mexican restaurant


Up this way was the hottest club in Tahoe years ago, Nero's.





High limit table games used to be to the left of this area, at Caesars. There were players who would bet minimum 5000 a hand back then.


No table games open at all, mid week afternoon.


They do still have a club though, Opal, also Blu which took the place of Nero's.

1 person dead, 2 missing after tour chopper crash off Kauaiís Na Pali Coast

I don't have the details on this helicopter crash yet, but the previous one in Kauai in 2019,

A Hawaii helicopter crash that killed 7 could have been prevented, investigators say

as well as Kobe Bryant's might have been prevented if the helicopters had a terrain awareness and warning system (TAWS). The FDA was trying to mandate them in all six person or more copters but the regulation didnít get past the discussion stage. They are in place in many copters.

My parents' neighbor actually used to have a helicopter pad on his lawn, and I remember his talking about TAWS, in general. When he sold his house, the new buyers demolished everything, built a new house, and - no helicopter pad.

If you look around downtown L.A. you see a lot of commercial skyscrapers with helicopter pads on them, but as a mode of travel it seems they never really took off the way businessmen in the '70s probably envisioned they would.

I spent quite a bit of time at the Horizon back in the day. It went downhill quick and was a dump when it closed.
At my age, a "Life In Prison" sentence is not much of a deterrent.

That propertyís proximity to the lake gives it the best views of any casino in Stateline.

Iíve stayed in the Horizon ďElvis suiteĒ (so named because he supposedly stayed there). It was the largest suite in Tahoe (the Sammy Davis Jr. two story suite at Harrahís that was converted into the now closed Summit restaurant might have been bigger but in any case pre-dated me).

The Horizon Elvis suite had a full sized pool table and a large sauna. It was however rather the worse for wear by the time I stayed there in the early 2000s.

From what I understood the Horizon bowed down and worshiped anyone who bet even green chips during a period when Tahoe catered to many pretty big players and you needed at that time more or less triple the average bet in Tahoe versus Vegas to get the same level of comps. This was of course before the Indian tribal casinos took over the market down the mountain, and Tahoe started suffering greatly from lack of decent casino traffic.

You must recall that female impersonators show Carnival Cabaret at the Horizon with Gypsy and Hunter - it rivaled Frank Morenoís show at the Riviera in Vegas was actually a pretty good show. But other than the view, the Elvis suite, Carnival Cabaret and maybe their top restaurant (every casino resort, even a dump like Circus Circus or the Four Queens has at least one good restaurant), I agree the Horizon had little to offer.

Family of bears steal show from celebrities at Tahoe golf tournament


Edgewood Tahoe Resort hosted icons from sports, news, pop culture, music and screen, including Jason and Travis Kelce, Colin Jost from ďSNL,Ē sportscaster Kathryn Tappen and celebrity chef Bobby Flay. Despite that star power, in one video of the bears on X, a woman can be heard saying, ďThis is the biggest crowd weíve seen all day.Ē

With Mob directed Teamster loans no longer available, junk bonds became the thing to finance Vegas casinos. Steve Weinberg was among the first.

How Steve Wynn financed Vegasí first mega resort

Wynnís ability to secure more than $600 million in financing for the Mirage project when ďLas Vegas mostly had $200 million casinos at that time,Ē is nothing short of ďextraordinary.Ē

The Mirage was not the first gaming property to be funded with high-yield bonds, or, as they are more derisively called, junk bonds. Nor was it even Wynnís first go around at securing speculative, high-risk bonds to finance a casino project.

But Wynnís ability to convince Wall Street that his ambitious casino ideas would bear fruit is nearly as consequential to the gaming world as the properties that resulted from his salesmanship. And, the success of his junk bond-funded casinos gave way to a new financing model that has been copied across the gaming landscape for decades.

Analysts at the time predicted The Mirage would need to exceed $1 million a day to satisfy its debt obligations. It did so with ease.

In a 1996 interview with CNN Money, Wynn rebuffed the early doubters of The Mirage by saying,ĒHow could anyone understand Disneyland if all theyíd ever seen was the Santa Monica pier?Ē
