See, you need to invest in several different Rolexes, to be consistent with the disguises.
May the cards fall in your favor.

If you're real adventerous meet him at the circus circus buffet.



I mentioned in a prior post on another thread that I wouldn't eat there even if it was comped. Now that I think of it I wouldn't stay at Circus Circus if it was comped either. Why did they name it Circus Circus anyway? Yeah, I know about the elephant and stuff, but it's like naming NYNY, NYNYNYNY. I remember back when on the second floor they had a small rotating bar. Had a drink there. Could have looked around to find Tony Stuart's gift shop. Anyone remember back in 1980 when they had lots of slot machines in Vegas that had nothing but $ signs on each stop (with a few scattered blanks and three logo-symbols of some sort for the jackpot)? You would get three $ signs almost 50% of the time for a 2:1 payout. This was back in the day when you had to grab the eight ball and pull down on the lever. I remember seeing Liberace there once.

I always thought that the sickening vibe of that place was just because the years have not been kind. But I recently watched Diamonds are Forever (1971 James Bond) and the casino looked just a eerie when it was new.

I thought of that movie too when I was posting about Circus Circus. Jill St. John was gorgeous.

I just noticed your signature line. It's amazing how many people when writing use then when they mean than. But they never use than when they mean then. (I think these people don't know there's a word than.)

The casino tower rooms are as good as Golden Nugget rooms.

It's not the rooms, it's the clientele.

I was really excited to see circus circus after seeing fear and loathing in Vegas. Big disappointment, it's just a bunch of kids running around.

I believe you are talking about Tony Spilatro, not Stewart.

I'm glad you mention this. Yes, Spilotro was his last name, but he held the gift shop under the alias Stuart.

There's an excellent book I read about Spilotro entitled Enforcer.
