  1. 1 Fremont Gene

    Tim & Michele –

    The decades question was fun! With the advantage of a few minutes to think, Suzanne and I selected

    1940s – Sal Sagev (currently Golden Gate)

    1950s – Moulin Rouge. First integrated casino, with performances and parties nightly, until dawn. Close second: El Rancho Vegas (across from the Sahara; it burned in 1960. The “CountryLand USA” site just north of the Riviera was the second El Rancho.

    1960s – Sands, of course. Rat Pack!

    1970s – The Mint (Currently Binion’s)

    1980s – VEGAS WORLD!! We loved this place, with all of the cheesy gimmicks and innovative games. Second: Desert Inn. Classy and comfortable.

    1990s – Stardust, even in its last days. Close second: Klondike (adjacent to the famous “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign. 99-cent food all hours, 10-cent roulette, two-dollar blackjack, and coin-spill machines. The cigarette smoke smell wasn’t bad enough to choke a horse, but it was bad enough to give a horse a hacking cough.

    Before 1940 – prohibition and recovery. Since 2000 – modern era.

    All opinion, of course. This question was one of the best.

    Regards,

    Fremont Gene and Suzanne!

    Las Vegas travelers (Gene) since 1987 (both) since 1991
