Las Vegas International Scouting Museum.
also at the Venetian.
See, first there are no museums in Las Vegas, than, overnight, there are two. This one is, for me anyway, more interesting than the other Guggenheim. Call me hoi-poloi if you want. I like motorcycles better than fine art. A terrific collection of bikes. Although I think more European bikes should have been included. Well worth a visit.see their website

Quad Resort and Casino Auto Collection

3535 Las Vegas Blvd. S. (Center Strip). 702 794 3174. This is actually the old Imperial Palace. I used to go in and see their car collection.

So, hit one of those huge jackpots and buy an antique car.

The word "fine" always gets me. They have someone on staff who decides what is "fine" and what is not?
Wednesday - Saturday, Noon - 5.00 PM.
I shall visit shortly and will "unfine" them. Gerhard Richter (contemporary German artist) dribbles paint on a canvas, than smears it around with a 5ft squeegee, gets $5 million for it at Sotheby's in London apparently would be classified as a hack.

Oh, those were the days. I have been in Las Vegas since 1975 and those were the heydays of the mob. What a cast of characters. Frank (lLefty) Rosenthal whose car blew up and he left town in a hurry, the "Hole in the Wall Gang" (Spilotro and friends), Al Bramlett, leader of Culinary Local 226 who stepped off the plane from Reno and whose bones were discovered some times later in the desert. the Green Shack, the Stardust Hotel whose coin winnings of several million $ disappeared, the corner of Flamingo and the Strip a gathering place for hookers of all stripes. I lived a block away on Koval Lane. But the best character of them all was Sheriff Floyd Lamb, a character directly out of the pages of the Old West. Ciowboy boots, Cowboy hats, large belt buckle, he had it all. Settled disputes with his fists. I think he was 6'2" or more. Now everything is so bland.
