SLIDE OF THE WEEK

The Neon Boneyard is the heart and soul of Las Vegas.

To stroll thru this time-travel treasure trove of over-the-top, mostly mid-century, vintage Vegas signage and other extraordinary Sin City artifacts is like being transported to some sort of parallel universe, where you are thrilled to feel about 3 feet tall. The signs are way, way bigger than you thought, when you are standing right next to them.

SLIDE OF THE WEEK

This Is So Many Kinds Of "Yes!"

Shining Shriners

This is so many kinds of “Yes!”

YES to the giant paint-by-number desert sky.

YES to this bizarre brotherhood of man who, for as far as the eye can see, proudly prance in unison.

YES to the fanciful façade of the short-lived Silver Palace and sky-scraping blade sign that, in case anyone forgets, reminds them what city they’re in, on this, the most electrified main street in the USA.

And YES to those uniform festive fezzes, sunshiny satin shirts and poofy pantaloons that are beautifully color coordinated to the City of Sin they are marching through!

Here’s to Shiners marching and matching Fabulous Las Vegas…YES!
