mom and pop vs the bulldozer

7 Aug

I’ve been going to Las Vegas for trade shows twice a year for the past four years. I usually stay at the Flamingo because it’s super cheap, and it’s right in the middle of the strip, which means that I can usually walk to where i need to be. Directly behind the Flamingo, and underneath the monorail is a small liquor store/Italian restaurant (that has “hole in the wall” in it’s name) that has been there for decades. I always go here to buy beer/whatever because it’s price point isn’t set at the “Vegas tourist” level. The obvious real estate trend on the strip is to plow over the old, and make room for the new super hotels, but it’s nice to see that these guys won’t be going anywhere anytime soon!
