Las Vegas Club Closed At MidnightPosted: 19/08/2015 Filed under: Blog | Tags: Buskers, Casinos, Cliff Harrison, Downtown Las Vegas, Entertainers, Gaming, Las Vegas, Photography, The Las Vegas Club, Writer, Writing Leave a comment Las Vegas Club closed a few hours ago. After 86 years in Downtown Las Vegas she joins the other great Vegas casinos whose legacies come to an end. The 400-unit hotel of the Las Vegas Club has been closed for years. The table games closed over the weekend and slots stopped making noise shortly before midnight when everyone had to be out the door.
The age-old hotel and casino was recently purchased by the owners of the D, the former Fitzgerald. Several commenters on the Las Vegas Review Journal thread mentioned they’d like to see the name “Las Vegas Club” stay, but that won’t happen. Derek and Greg Stevens owners of the D Las Vegas said they only purchased the real-estate and structure, not the business, the name or the player database. So that means the Las Vegas Club will open somewhere else and some other name will be attached to the new business when upgrades are completed.
The Stevens brothers also own 60% of the Golden Gate which is across the street, one of the original, if not the original casino in Downtown Vegas. The Stevens Brothers have renovated a few properties downtown and intend to continuing like transaction in the Fremont Street Experience area which has just had new rules put in place for the over abundance of street buckers that the City and casinos have been trying to run off for years.
Numerous complaints come in about the buskers, although for many we find them to be pleasant attractions. The city has been unable to drive the street entertainers out completely because the ACLU protects them for free speech. The Fremont Street Experience is private and public which makes it a complicated situation. But rumors have it that they will again attempt to drive off the buskers by creating expensive permits. When selfishness and greed dominates there’s little room for the little guy to survive. In the 86 years the Las Vegas Club has been running countless street performers made a living along its shadows. It wouldn’t hurt to just make some practical rules everybody can live with and then just get along. There is enough cash flow coming into town everybody can win. And the street buskers are like everybody and everything else, some people love them and some people hate them.

You’ve come so far
You’ve reached for the stars
They were hung in the sky just for you
So you could have all your dreams come true
Don’t let the flame of your dreams fade
Don’t let anyone take them away
Just when things seem too hard to bear
You’ll need to know you are almost there
So don’t give up on your dreams
To reach them isn’t as hard as it may seem
Don’t let them find you crying in the rain
And if they do don’t hold your head in shame
Just keep reaching for those stars
And I promise you that you’ll go far
Don’t let anything stop your dreams
Don’t let anything stop your dreams
Don’t let anything stop your dreams

Happy Anniversary Free One
You know who you are… one day the world will, too.
At 6:06 P.M. one year ago today, you touched down on the soil of your new home, free and independent from the tyranny and suppression you escaped from when the chains of your bondage were broken… forever.
You are home now. Home, in America.
You are my admired one. Always will be. Until I draw my last breath. I’m so proud of you.
You’ve demonstrated unbroken courage, relentless work ethics and unshakable will that I have seldom witness in my long life.
Your talent, your creativity and your literary art is beyond description. I just know in my heart you are the making of something powerfully great. You just have to be patient, practice and persevere. You’ll arrive at your destiny and shine like an eternal flame in the dark. Your light will be a beacon for those lost in darkness to follow. A flashlight that illuminates a path out of darkness. I promise. Just keep working it.
Your turbulence never ceased, everyday, every hour has been a continued struggle. Your journey has not been without obstacles, tears or broken heart, yet your drive is unswayable, your resolve untamable; and many are the days and hours that are troubling for you, yes, I know, but you are free. FREE! You are independent. You are in America. Your ankles are unshackled. Your chains are broken and no longer are you held in bondage or fear the same as that darkness you escaped from. You are free and independent in a nation that is
free and independent. You are in a world that is not perfect nor pure, and our nation is not without its own dark side, its faults, but we are a people who for the most part will fight to the death for our freedom and independence–and yours, too–and we will fight to the death against those barbarians who you are now free from. That dark corner of the world will never leave your memory, there are fond memories of home and loved ones attached, but it is a distant land and you now have new hope, new opportunity and new rewards. New adventures. New roads to journey down. New mountains to climb. New people to meet and new places to go and new things to do. You are liberated. And there is no greater taste in all the world than the sweet taste of victory and liberating.
Yes, there will be challenges and defeats and trying times ahead that will seem to never end, but the taste of victory is the sweetest thing you shall ever taste, and make it all worth it. Improvise and hold fast and steady to your resolve for you are strong, much stronger than many I know. I know you can do it. Never give up. Never forsake your dream. Never quit. Never cease your strong will. For your character and personality is of such that champions are made of. I know, I used to walk beside them once. Your composition is what makes you great. One day it will all come together for you and you’ll understand what you went through is what you had to in order to be the better person who lived the fullest life, a life worth living. You can do it, now forge on. Be proud.
May peace and prosperity be the rewards of your life’s struggles. May you receive every thing you hope and dream for. Know, my precious one, that although you are some times sad, that when things don’t go just right, there is a reason. That reason is because those “things” don’t belong in your life, as much as you want them to be, and they are rejected by the powerful One. They are rejected for a reason, to make room for the better things to come. And they will come. And when they do, you’ll rejoice.
My long-lasting friend, forever may God’s best guardian angels look after you and protect you.
I will always love you…
May the wings of our friendship never lose a feather…
