Vegas Vicki (Sassy Sally) Sits atop the Glitter Gulch Sign

Glitter Gulch’s neon cowgirl is nicknamed Vegas Vicky. Originally named Sassy Sally after the strip joint below her, she was designed by Ad-Art and put up in 1980. Her leg was supposed to kick out over Fremont Street but that never seemed to work. In 2001, Sassy Sally’s became the Mermaids Casino. Vegas Vicky is still there, across the street from Vegas Vic.

While the Fremont Street Experience was under construction and before they took Vegas Vicki down, she and Vic were married in a ceremony covered by the local newspapers and news stations.
