Rat Pack Hangout Nears Its End

Crud. They're going to close the Stardust down this November and tear it down soon thereafter. Pity. I really like the old place-- one of the few remaining remnants from the Sinatra/Martin/Davis, Jr. years, and probably the cleanest of what's left on the Strip. I stayed there once and liked it quite a lot.

Very nice poker room, extremely busy sports book, and it was the home of Wayne Newton for many years. Outside of Elvis, I'm not sure anything is more Vegas than Wayne Newton.

Time rolls on.
