Vegas Days Gone By: Bill's/Barbary Coast
Speaking of Bill's Gambling Hall, which we mentioned in yesterday's post, I'm going to miss this Victorian-themed casino that sat on the corner of Flamingo and Las Vegas Boulevard, currently being overhauled as part of the Linq project. Formerly the Barbary Coast, it was all stained glass and chandeliers red velvet drapes. They had low table minimums for blackjack, too. But what I'll miss most was the drive down from the parking garage: a steep spiral descent that was the best thrill ride in town.
