Remember the Sahara, where until it closed a couple years ago, you could still hangout in the lounge where the Rat Pack performed? The place is officially open again as SLS Las Vegas. The name sucks, so figure that will change at some point. It sounds like some sort of shitty LLC that seems shady. Investors poured $415 million into the place that sits across Sahara Blvd. from the Strat. And, as you’d guess, the place is upscale. Just what Vegas needed. SLS has a pool where even more California assholes will enjoy. Here are the rooms — Oh, look rooms that look like they’re out of a Beverly Hills magazine. Vegas didn’t already have any of those. Weekend rates are in the $140 range.
I’m just glad I was able to spend my early 20s playing $1 3-2 BJ in the Sahara before it was turned into another stale Hollywood elite shrine. You know what once made Vegas so great? Decent shitty casinos meshed nicely with the shrines. Those days are long gone.

Before tonight, last time Twins scored as many as 20 runs vs Tigers was April 24, 1996 (Paul Molitor and Alan Trammell played in game).
The Tigers are now 2.5 games behind the Royals
