Sin City has beckoned us for a very long time... (I hear the sinner Hula Hula calling) and we finally broke down and bought a place there! It's a total fixer-upper, but only from neglect, not bad HomeDepotizing. It is an original owner 1957 little weeping morter brick ranch house. Futura Girl posted pictures, etc. here: http://www.lottaliving.com/elranchito

We named it "El Ranchito" after the famous 1st Strip Casino "El Rancho" (Wayne McAllister, 1941) only 1/2 mile away. We're gonna do it up all 1950s style - and of course there will have to be some kind of tiki-ness involved!

If there is anyone willing to be brave enough to withstand the Mid July heat of Vegas... we'll supply swanky tunes, pizzas, sodas, paint and brushes, central a.c., and a place on the floor to crash. So bring your swimsuit, airmattress and sleeping bag and maybe we'll see you there?
---------------
EDITED:
Escrow now closes on Thursday, July 3. So drop by anytime round the clock - day or night that weekend. And, we'll be in town with floor space to spare between then and Saturday, July 12th.

Congrats on the new digs and thanks for the invite. I will let Lady V. know, but who needs an excuse to go to Vegas, anyways?

It's on my calendar, and I'm going to try to make it. It would be my very first time to Vegas (shocking, I know!!).

Nice find! I was looking at your wonderful landscaping plan and I think that tall skinny plant is an Ocotillo. It has beautiful red blooms this time of year.

nope - not moving - just a vacation/friend crash pad/maybe a rental? kind of thing...

thanks jab for the ocotillo tip! that's what it is.
we're trying to xeriscape the front with no irrigation (not in the budget), so i don't know if we'll be able to get away with some of the plants we really wan to use. we have a friend with a hillside of blue agaves up for grabs, so we might just go cactus out front.

the windmill is in tribute to the el rancho hotel.
http://gaming.unlv.edu/ElRanchoVegas/ my pal chris keeps telling me for a real tribute we should put the windmill on the roof!

I was listening to the jazz station (88.1 FM) yesterday and they mentioned that Sam Butera is playing at one of the Southern California casinos in a few weeks. Now I've gotta go look up the particulars. I made a special trip to Vegas about 4 years ago just to see him play at Orleans. He was amazing!

Capozolli's is the best Italian restaurant I've been to on the West Coast-food and service come closest to the ones in my old home-Brooklyn (even though our waiter was from da Bronx!) And how can you pass up a place with resident glamorous 'vintage' showgirls as patrons!

Last call for Vegas fun...

If you decide at the last minute to head to Vegas for the weekend... all are welcome...

Directions to El Ranchito:
15 north to Las Vegas
Exit Sahara and head East.
Pass the Strip and proceed roughly 1/2 mile.
At 6th Street make a U-turn
go back 1 block and turn right on Beverly.
We are halfway down the block on the right.
Address is 2205 Beverly Way.

There will be a Tiki Central Online Connection available on site

C.B. will be heading back right away, but I'll be in town from July 3rd through the 10th or so...
