Former Vegas mayor Oscar Goodman opens up restaurant

August 3, 2011

You know what they say, “Find something you love to do and get paid for doing it and you’ll never work a day in your life.” Therefore it makes perfect sense that former Las Vegas mayor Oscar Goodman has just opened a “speakeasy” and steakhouse in downtown Las Vegas.

Goodman, you’ll recall, is the only U.S. mayor in history who had his own gin contract.

Las Vegas Strip casino closes

March 12, 2011

 

The Sahara, the Vegas casino that was the final place where The Rat Pack performed, is closing for good. The casino announced it is due to shut down May 16th.

The Sahara was the oldest remaining casino on the Las Vegas Strip, having been built in 1952. Unfortunately for the Sahara, not only was it the oldest strip casino in an era of multi-billion dollar palaces, but also the furthest from McCarran Airport.

The shuttering of the Sahara puts 1,000 Las Vegans out of work. It also means no more $1 rooms.

MEMO TO NITWIT CRIMINALS: STOP ROBBING VEGAS STRIP CASINOS

February 26, 2011

LATEST ALLEGED CHIP THIEF “MASTERMIND” STEVEN GAO

Dude! Once again, you’re not Danny Ocean.

Yet another bungling Las Vegas would-be casino chip thief has learned the hard way that crime doesn’t pay. At least not on the Las Vegas Strip. However horrifically inept Metro is at solving other major crimes, they are 100% at getting major strip casinos their heisted poker chips back.

In the latest strip robbery, a man wearing a “fedora, fake mustache and sunglasses” pulled a stickup at the Rio All-Suites Hotel & Casino, scooping up $33,000 in chips off a pai gow table after pulling a gun on the dealer. The man then ran through the casino making his getaway by jumping into a speeding cab.

The thief was identified in less than three hours because the cab driver (using his own cab and real license plates) was in on the heist. The getaway driver also worked at the same cab company with the alleged thief, identified by Metro as Steven Gao. Gao apparently stole the casino chips to a pay off a $15,000 gambling debt to a third moron. He and the cabbie were caught red-handed and immediately rolled over on Gao. Gao is now on the run after most of the chips were already recovered.

Earlier this month, Anthony Carleo was nabbed in the “Bellagio Bandit” case. In a daring robberry wearing a blackened motorcycle visor in December, Carleo allegedly made off with $1.5 million in high end $25,000 casino chips called “cranberries” (and $0 in cash.) He then sped off on a motorcycle, apparently making a clean, unidentifiable getaway.

Unfortunately for Carleo, despite his daring, he also happens to be a complete goddamn moron. When the casino announced they were going to stop honoring the “Cranberry” chips, a desperate Carleo was caught trying to fence the hot chips to undercover Vegas cops.Twice. This was after Carleo drunkenly bragged to patrons in a Colorado bar that he had committed the robbery. Carleo also e-mailed an autographed photo of the stolen chips to a stranger to “prove” he had ripped off the casino. The guy immediately called the FBI.

Carleo wasn’t too hard to track down. He was actually staying at the scene of the crime when he was arrested in a room he had been COMPED at the Bellagio. How did the guy who stole from the casino end up with a free room? Because after he sold his million-and-a-half in hot casino chips for $75,000, Carleo lost $85,000 gambling. AT THE SAME CASINO. That made him -$10,000 after pulling off the million dollar plus robbery.

Jesus Christ, Las Vegas has some stupid criminals!

GWYNETH PALTROW IS A DERANGED, LYING WHORE

GWYNETH PALTROW

Actress Gwyneth Paltrow (who is also the world’s worst blogger) went on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon recently and made some pretty lurid accusations against lion tamer/illusionist Roy Horn of Siegfried and Roy fame.

Paltrow claimed Horn tried to lift up her dress and kiss her on the lips. This allegedly happened at the opening of the Cosmopolitan casino in Las Vegas where Paltrow’s husband Chis Martin and his band Coldplay were performing.

Why would a famously gay wheelchair-bound man (Horn is still suffering the effects of a tiger mauling during a performance seven years ago and the resulting brain trauma) sexually harass an actress on the red carpet of a casino opening, in public and in front of her husband? The answer appears to be he didn’t. Paltrow is lying. She made the whole incident up.

Multiple witnesses who were standing next to Horn during his brief exchange with Paltrow have come forward. One told gossip columnist Norm! that the ONLY thing Horn said to the actress was, “Boy, you are awfully tall.” The witness, a friend of Horn’s, also pointed out that the longtime Vegas entertainer had no idea who Paltrow was.

One Las Vegas website has already awarded Paltrow its “Stupidest Lie of the Year” award and we’re only a couple of weeks into January.
