    One word Tim. BAIL!!!

    A “Ninja Cheerleaders” slogan:

    “Is that a katana under your kimono, or are you just happy to see me?”

    Want 124 now darn it! Couldnt harm to post it 5 days early eh eh …

    btw, Its a very bad idea to name your pet “Vegas” – as we have just done with our new kitten. Needeless to say she was getting very excited whilst listening to the Podcast and hearing her name continuously!

    Good news. RateVegas has additional information about Fontana Lounge. It will be reopening in December. Details here.

    Dear Michelle and Tim,

    Tracinda = a blending of the names of Kirk Kerkorian’s two daughters, Tracy and Linda, NOT the name of one daughter.

    Love your podcast.


  6. 6 Tim

    Thanks for the clarification, XMan. I thought Tracinda seemed a tad nontraditional for the name of the daughter of a 150-year-old.

    Ninja Cheerleaders sounds kind of phony. Ninja Accountants, maybe. Ninja Pornslappers–now that would be a blockbuster.

    “By day they sling stripper cards at unsuspecting tourists. But as night falls the Ninja Pornslappers swing into action from their secret lair underneath the famous Monkey Pokerdome.”

    (That’s as far as I’ve gotten so far with the concept.)

    In case you are wondering, there is a regional theatre Tony Award so maybe there’s hope for Tony Danza.

    Hey, I love the Western. I love it like a groin boil. Here’s a good write-up on the place.

    The podcast mentioned that Cheapo Vegas’ review of the hotel has been taken down. If anyone wants to read the old review from the Internet Archive, see

    When I last visited the Western, the blackjack was very good. Double deck, 3:2 pay on naturals, very low minimums.

    I know where you are.

    The price tag matches Prince’s latest album title, 3121: 70 “standing room only” tickets reportedly cost $312.10, while the remaining 130 seats will be sold as pairs in VIP packages, which includes dinner and seated show access for a whopping $3,121.

    At least my Paypal donation went to a good cause. 🙂
