“Showboat Hotel and Casino 1961” by Ferris H. Scott of Santa Ana, CA – Scan of a 1961 postcard,

The Showboat Hotel & Casino opened on September 3, 1954, the hotel and casino was located at the north end of the Boulder Strip in Las Vegas, Nevada. Orginally opened as the showboat (1954–2000). It was the first resort within Las Vegas city limits, it had 100 rooms on two floors.

n 1998, Harrah’s Entertainment bought Showboat, Inc. for $1.15 billion. Harrah’s interests were primarily in the Atlantic City and Chicago markets, however; the Las Vegas property did not fit with the company’s strategy. They sold the Showboat in 2000 for $23.5 million.
Castaways (2000–2004)

Harrah’s refused to sell the Showboat name, not wanting the Las Vegas property to be confused with Showboat Atlantic City, so they renamed it as the Castaways. The hotel consisted of a 19 story tower containing 445 rooms, a 80,000-square-foot casino and an adjacent RV park. Demolition began in July 2005, and the hotel tower was imploded on January 11, 2006.

Actual Photo of Chlorine Tank

On this day August 29, 2007, a runaway chlorine tank car traveled approximately 22 miles through the heart of Las Vegas. The tank car hit a top speed of 50 mph before stopping in the Northern part of Las Vegas. The tank car was fully-loaded with chlorine, a toxic irritating chemical. The tank care had broken free from a rail yard on the South end of the Las Vegas Valley around 9 a.m. The tanker’s speed reached 50 mph. Fortunately no one was hurt and there was no damage or leak of chlorine during the incident.

Best Internet Cafés in Las Vegas

August 18, 2017

Welcome to Las Vegas sign
Hitting the Las Vegas Strip is top of many a bucket list, but for those who need to take some time out from gambling to catch up on emails, social media, business, or gaming, it’s important to know where the best internet cafés are located. Luckily, Las Vegas is home to a great selection of places where you can grab good food while enjoying fast connections, so we take a look at some of the best places where you can catch up on your internet admin.

If you’re looking for a social hangout with high quality PCs and powerful internet speed, make sure to check out Evo Café at 3310 S Jones Boulevard. Bargain priced soft drinks and snacks along with super late opening times (they close at 5am) make this a favorite among locals and visitors alike. Gaming sessions are also cheap, costing around $20 for 12 hours plus a free Coke, but asking for a membership account will entitle you to a whole host of other benefits and bonuses. It is worth remembering that smoking is permitted here, so if you are a non-smoker it might not be the place for you.

Another highly rated gamers paradise is PVP Zone at 6250 W Charles Boulevard. A non-smoking establishment, they are open 24 hours a day and offer late night owl specials ($10 from 2am – 10am). Comfy chairs, great service, powerful hardware, and super-fast connection speeds make this one of the most favored internet cafes in the area. The café also offers well-priced smoothies and hot tea as well as a wide selection of Thai food. Prices for internet access start from $4 an hour, however they also run deals such as buy 4 hours get one free (5 hours for $16) which means you can easily forget about the casinos down the road! Nevada were the first state to legalize online gambling in 2013, so you can use these great internet deals to try your hand at online poker on 888poker.com.

Gorilla Café offers the unique opportunity to brush up on your pool, carom, and billiards skills in between internet sessions on their huge range of pool tables. Heavy duty PC hardware and gaming consoles are available in the LAN centre, with rates starting at $4 an hour for non-members, and $3 per hour solo play on PlayStation 3. Located at 1801 E Tropicana Avenue, Gorilla Café offers a wide variety of different snacks and instant noodle bowls, as well as reasonably priced sodas, juice, energy drinks, soju, and raspberry sake. It is also possible to have food delivered to your PC from your favorite restaurant.

For an Instagram-worthy interior, healthy acai bowls, house-crafted juices, and organic superfood smoothies, head to House of Alchemy at 4245 S Grand Canyon Drive. While the café has not provided PCs, there are plenty of outlets and super-fast Wi-Fi for those who like to take their own devices to work from. House of Alchemy also has its own private parking lot and clean gender neutral restrooms. It opens from 8am – 5pm weekdays and 9am – 4pm weekends. A little on the pricey side for food, but the connection is free and the service, coffee, and iced lattes are something to write home about.

An inexpensive place to access Wi-Fi is Café Darak, at 8665 W Flamingo Road. The quirky bohemian décor of this unique establishment makes it a huge favorite among locals, particularly as it is open until 2am – perfect for those late study nights. Bring your own device to take advantage of the free Wi-fi, set up in the cool VW bus tent, order the Oreo cheesecake, or check out the range of art and jewelry on sale.
