CONVICTED OF A CRIME? YOU CAN BE 86ED FROM STRIP
Yesterday, The Clark County Commission gave the thumbs up to expanding an ordinance allowing a judge to ban a convicted criminal from the Las Vegas Strip. The ordinance originally applied to people who were convicted on prostitution or drug charges, but now it’s open to any crime. If a judge finds it is in the convict’s best interest to stay away from the most fun part of Las Vegas Boulevard, they can legally stop them from setting foot there.
THE VOICE OF MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL, VIN SCULLY, DIES
He was the voice of the Los Angeles Dodgers for a third of his life. Last night, Vin Scully passed away at the age of 94. His voice is pretty unanimously considered the official voice of baseball, with decades of fans associating his dulcet tones with America’s pastime. He started in the 1950s and went all the way through until 2016. All with one team. A record by a mile. His most famous call? An injured Kirk Gibson stepping up to the plate in the 1988 World Series.
TWO TALL LADIES TO ADORN LAS VEGAS-SIDE OF THE BOULEVARD
You’re gonna need to back up a few yards to take a picture of the newest attraction set to take Las Vegas Boulevard and Main Street. Right there at the fork in the road, a pair of 25 foot showgirl signs are there. But they are about to get shipped to the Arts District and replaced by a pair of massive 50 foot showgirls that, in renderings, look absolutely mammoth. The ladies will be posed on what appear to be two martini glasses, and will hover above larger than life chips, dice and a roulette wheel.

The OG showgirls were 25 feet tall.
In the near future, new showgirls that are 50 feet tall will be installed ✨
