Frontier Hotel 1942-2007

Frontier Hotel 1942-2007

"This is the end result of all the bright lights... and the comp trips, of all the champagne... and free hotel suites,
and all the broads and all the booze. It's all been arranged just for us to get your money.
That's the truth about Las Vegas. We're the only winners. The players don't stand a chance. "

-- Sam "Ace" Rothstein, Casino, 1995

Things I see in LV...

With all the empty land in LV it always amazes me how these home and apt. builders will build right on top of a freeway.  Note the huge wall in front of the apt. -- probably built to try and reduce freeway noise.  Like that's going to matter on the upper floors of this place.  I wonder if the freeway units are more expensive to rent because they have a "view."

Las Vegas has been hard hit in the recession and housing crisis.  The unemployment rate is still one of the highest  in the country.  However, one would never know this with the amount of freeway construction, freeway landscape, and sound wall projects currently in progress. 

I suspect there can be only person we have to thank for all this construction work to make our freeways move faster and look better:  That's right, Boss Hogg himself -- Sen. Harry Reid.


This last one made me smile.  The license plate is great but then I noticed the type of car.  A plate like this belongs on something like a Maserati, Corvette, or maybe even a higher end BMW.  A Pontiac Firebird?  Come on now...

Las Vegas Smoker of the Week #23

Another Vegas car smoker, St. Rose and Seven Hills, late morning.  Why do they equip cars with ashtrays when everything goes out the window?

Las Vegas Car of the Week #26

Low life low rider...  This clown was hittin' switches as he rolled down Trop. Car was leaning left, right, up and down.  I could not stop laughing!

What idiot would spend big bucks on rims, tires, and hydraulics and then put them on a crappy Ford Fairmont or whatever piece of crap this car is.   Even if this car was fixed up with a nice paint job it has no business being turned into a low rider.

Guess the Casino #11

LV Strip hotel.  Considered to be mid to high end.  Now starting to fall apart...

Parking garage.. tagging like this all over the place.  

Parking garage elevator.  Dirty, rundown, and busted up.  Sounds like deferred maintenance...

Some Random Pics from the LV Strip...

Pants on the ground, pants on the ground, lookin' like a fool with your pants on the ground.

Slow day for toke hustling movie characters...  Wonder what they are talking about?  It was only 105f when I took this photo.

I am going to make some assumptions here:  This is a bachelorette posse.  The girl without the purple tank top on is the bachelorette.

Interesting how one girl is on point and one girl is bringing up the rear.  I wonder if they are having a good time?  Note all have test tube drinks.

So what's the deal with the same color tank tops?  Is this some requirement of the future bride?  Are they worried about losing someone?
