I'd forgotten about it, but I have a sign from the Tiki Bar at The Desert Inn. It lists various drink specials., and has some art on it. Its pretty big and would look real nice in someone's pool area. Its a shame to leave it locked up.

I got this in the early '70's.

It's a paper 22 x 36 Craps layout from the El Cortez Hotel and Casino. On the flip side is a Black Jack layout.

They were free souvenir handouts.

Bought one of them off eBay. Nice piece.

Other than chips and casino dice, the closest thing I have to something "cool" is a Mob Bar pint glass from Downtown Grand (which, AFAIK, are no longer made, as the bar is long closed; the last time I was there, in mid-2016, the gift shop no longer carried them).

This reminded me of the drunk guy that helped himself to The D Blarney Stone a few years back

Probably not as interesting on its own, but I have a live 6 of diamonds from a deck from Norwegian Cruise Lines. The problem is that I have no idea where it came from and it isn't marked like a souvenir deck would be; it came out of my clothing bag when I got home. Oh well, I'm not banned yet.

I hope you were playing blackjack into that shoe with the missing six.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I have no idea how to spell it. I asked in a few game and toy stores in Germany for a game board but nobody understood what I was asking for. Trying to pronounce it and spell it didn't help. I know my German is worse than awful but it also may be the young folks who work in toy/game stores aren't familiar with antiquated card games their grandparents played. If you don't believe me, try to find anyone under the age of 40 who can play cribbage, which is a great game I might add.



Freakin’ cribbage, one of those games where you think you’re good, until you play someone who is actually good.

(GREAT game.)

Love cribbage. Perhaps we should start an online WoV league.

I had a safe deposit box I forgot about. I guess that branch shut down and I didn't get the notice so It was sent to the state for unclaimed property.

I had 50 to 100 $5 commemorative grand opening uncirculated slot Tokens for Sunset Station. They are in tin their original packaging.

If anyone is interested, let me know.

I have no idea if you could even cash them in at this point.
