Las Vegas Casino Death Watch
Who's closing their doors next...
Casinos in Vegas are constantly getting bought, closing down, being demolished, andbeing rebuilt as some new hotel/casino. Historic places like the Sands,the Dunes, the Desert Inn, and the Pioneer no longer exist. For the first three,their names live on in the streets named after them that intersect the strip. Andthe Pioneer's famous waving "Vic" neon sign is still waving above downtown, thoughthe Pioneer itself is long gone.
Nick Christenson keeps a running tab of what casinos have closed, what they've become,and which casinos are on the chopping block next. You can read all about it at hisCasino Death Watch site. You can also see the featured interview with himby the folks at Vegas Tripping.
