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.”
