las vegas may be Sin City but every sin city has it's inferno and here in las vegas, there are lots of establishments whether casino complexes or hotels or hot spots that have closed, gone bust and just plainly become bankrupt since the last time I have been here in 2005 and this tip is more of a montage and a tribute to those vegas joints that are not around today in 2011 at the time of my revisit. The recession has really hit hard this city and nowadays, there are also less poeple at the gaming tables and at the slot machines as before and there are less ASIANS, which are the Real High Rollers of the Casinos, going to Vegas as compared to Macau and Singapore, which are now the hottest Gambling Destinations and are a short plane ride away as compared to Vegas.
