Terrible's, Las Vegas, NV



Unlike a convex mirror, things in Las Vegas are NOT closer than they appear. Quite the opposite. I was in Las Vegas staying at the Flamingo. From my hotel room, I saw Terrible's neon lights beckoning to me. I decided to walk on over. It's not something I'll do again. That part of Flamingo Road wasn't made for walking.

The casino truly lives up to its name.

Hmm. I've walked from the Atomic Testing Museum to Terrible's and thence to the Strip. It wasn't a short walk, but I found no difficulty on the road. It's rather hard to cross the street, though, as there aren't as many traffic lights as you might expect.

Anyway, They got the name wrong on the card, but I foget exactly how. I still do have the T-shirt I got for signing up, possibly even the coupon book, too. I'm a bit of a pack rat with trip memorabilia.

Hooters, Las Vegas, NV






When Hooters took over the San Remo, I don't think anyone thought it would last as long as it has. I believe the final curtain will fall soon for the property known for its Owl logo. Seriously! An owl? Who would go to a casino whose logo is an owl? They would have had more success with dirty pillows as their theme. If they had hot chicks in scantily clad orange shorts and halter tops, that might have worked but a stupid owl?

I have to say though in all seriousness that this property is the only one that I consider repellant. I never win there and it's just creepy.

BTW I have one, and only one from a casino in Monterrey , Mexico. Can I just post it, or are you following a meticulous listing like our own lovable Doc? I still ahve to smuggle it into the office to scan it, so it won't be before the weekend.

Post away, I'll add it to the index in post 1 when I see it.

The Palms, Las Vegas, NV






I don't have a story for The Palms. I remember that the first time I went there, I thought that it felt like a cafeteria. The second time, it was a bit improved in atmosphere but since I never get any offers, I don't go.

I have to skip tomorrow as I'll be at Bally's AC without a scanner.

Who's face, if it is a face, is that on the slot machine? Is it supposed to be one of the Maloof brothers?

The first Palms card seems like it was crudely colored with chalk or pastels, which is kind of cute in it's way. The second one looks like the product of some bad acid trip :P
