Arrests include Binion’s girlfriend Sandy Murphy and her presumed lover Rick Tabish. This real life tale of sex, murder, wealth, and drugs will be played out over the next few months. Those wishing to follow it can visit the Review-Journal’s special online section at

ENDLESS SUMMER BEACH PARTIES – The Hard Rock Hotel continues it’s summer beach parties at their newly expanded beach club every Wednesday evening from 6:30 – 10:00 PM. The $10 admission includes 2 drinks and hors d’ oeuvres, basically making admission free! On top of that, beach party patrons are admitted free to Baby’s 80’s club party (usually ladies free, guys $11) that runs late into the night (must show ticket stub at the door, admission only until midnight with stub). Tickets are available by calling (702) 474-4000 and since you will need a room to stagger back to after a night like that, head over to the Hard Rock Hotel Las Vegas link to check price and availability.

Rental Cars – Don’t pay top dollar! Enter the dates of your visit and compare prices from virtually every major rental car agency (most US cities). Book the lowest price company or your regular agency. Save the hassle and some money – Car Rental Savings Search. Few regret renting a car. Free shuttles and city bus rides can be slow and smelly. Taxis can cost what a rental car costs. Your vacation time is valuable — make the most out of it!

LAS VEGAS NEWS – of interest to tourists:

4’TH OF JULY FIREWORKS IN LAS VEGAS – Unlike previous years, fireworks abound in Las Vegas on July 2, 3, and 4’th including a big display on the Las Vegas Strip this year at the Stratosphere Tower. You can do a free price and availability search for Stratosphere rooms by going to Stratosphere Tower Hotel Casino link. Details and contact information for all fireworks activities are available at http://www.lasvegas.com/events/4thofjuly/.

RISE AND FALL OF BINION’S – This obituary is premature, but there is no question that the new ownership of Binion’s Horseshoe downtown have instituted cost cutting measures drastically reducing the tradition and allure of this downtown landmark. The days of comp meals for $5-10 blackjack players are a thing of the past, if you want your photo taken with the million dollars you had better bring your own camera, and top table limits have been instituted for the first time in the casino’s history. One wonders how long the $3.00 steak special (referenced in our last issue at last issue will last.

Since the opening of the infamous gambling joint, founder Benny Binion had let you establish your top betting limit with your first bet, no matter how big. Million dollar bets have been made, won, and lost there. For those who long for the “good old days”, the Review-Journal has a great historical piece on Benny at http://www.1st100.com/part2/binion.html

LAS VEGAS NEWS – of interest to tourists:

SASSY SALLY’S FINED – According the Review Journal, the Nevada
Gaming Control Board issued allegations of tip hustling and jackpot
guarantees against Sassy Sally’s and the Coin Castle casinos downtown.
To those who have ever been hustled in the door and harassed to play
machines (not to mention having tips demanded by change people when
you hit even a small jackpot), this comes as pleasant news. Owner
Herb Pastor is facing a maximum fine of $1.5 million dollars for this
long-time practice. This ruling is very welcome by those whose
otherwise enjoyable downtown experience was tainted by the unethical
practices of these 2 casinos. The full story is available at:
http://www.lvrj.com/lvrj_home/1999/Jun-08-Tue-1999/business/11329496.html
