Watched a YouTube video this morning on the grand opening of the new 4 billion dollar mega-hotel/casino 'Resorts World'. It's on the northern part of the Vegas strip. Pretty overwhelming! Made me pine for the simpler things Reno had to offer like these two classic places.

Went to the Reno Rodeo last week and it was nice to see the old Harold's Cub mural prominently displayed at the Livestock Event Center.

Oh I loved the lights on the Comstock. Question: When did it close?

I had to google that one. 'A long time ago' was about all I could come up with on my own. Wikipedia says it was aquired by an investor in 1999, but he was denied a gaming license - So he sold it in 2000. Guess that's about when it started to be remodeled as a apartment building.

I have lots of good memories of that old west and mining themed casino. Had my first luck on a slot machine there. Some of the casino had old wooden plank floors and there were some animated western characters up on the walls. I even stayed in the hotel once. The exterior sparkly lights were only up for it's last few years - They were pretty cool though
