April/May Poll Question Results

The Trop

Originally uploaded by scottyvegas2


The biggest game in Vegas just might be the casinos themselves. The newest casino is always trying to outdo the last. This is evident by endless construction on the strip. There are still several “classics” on the strip but they are starting to really show there age and this economic downturn will, I’m sure, sink the last nail in the coffin for at least one. With this said please participate in this month’s poll


Tell me, in your humble opinion what Las Vegas Strip property should have a date with the wrecking ball and finally be put to rest?

Beverly Hillbillies Gambler Casino?

Originally uploaded by scottyvegas2

It’s a little known fact that Jethro Bodine of The Beverly Hillbillies fame (aka. Max Baer Jr.) once owned a stake in a little off strip casino named, what else, Beverly Hillbillies Gambler Casino. Now don’t get all excited, the casino has been long closed. I guess all that ciphering proved too much for Jethro. 

But all is not lost as Dotty’s, no relation to the Hillbillies even though it sounds like it, has plans on opening the old North Las Vegas gambling parlor.  I bet if old Jethro would have put in a nice water’in hole he just might have had a shot. Opps, If you decide to visit the “historic landmark” and happen to stumble upon old Jethro don’t bring up the word “shot” apparently his girlfriend blew her head off with a shotgun a few years ago and I don’t think granny had anything to do with it.   

 As old Jed would say “If brains was lard, that boy wouldn’t have enough to grease a skillet.”
