The Fremont Experience

Wednesday night, Craig, Rick and I had the full downtown experience on Fremont Street, home to the original strip. Rick remembers when he was a kid coming down here and seeing all those Rat Pack guys, so it was like a stroll down memory lane. But with a giant jumbo-tron display covering the street like a massive archway, heh. I got to take some photos of the classic cowboy at The Frontier, and bought some tacky souvenirs. Dinner specials greeted us at every casino, so we decided on the Binion Steakhouse, where they were selling sirloins and lobster for $11.99, and filet mignon for $12.99. I opted for the filet…and it was definitely a steak that cost $12.99. Guess I’m spoiled by my KC beef. The ambiance was priceless — I could almost picture Moe Green from the Godfather IIstrutting around the casino floor. Out in the street, live bands played covers from the 50s and 60s, and the guys from Chippendale’s would pose with willing young ladies for a fee. Ahhh, Vegas.
