Description

It was a busy final day at The Riviera…. with a bit of sadness. (mos) (room) (crazy girls day) On the casino floor, it was business as usual – with maybe a little more urgency in some areas. (slots – car) The final show at the Riviera comedy club featured two veterans of the room: Shayla Tash and Michael Parisi. The other acts… had already packed up. As the sun rose on Monday morning, workers still on the clock did their jobs. But the table game dealers… wrapped it up in the darkness. (table games) And those slot machines with in-house progressives… were mostly done by sunrise. A few guests and employees came out to the pool for one last look – security there to make sure it wasn’t one last dip. The Riv’s demise means one fewer pool on the strip that’s an actual pool, with a deep end and swimming lanes. By 6am, there were only a few dozen people roaming the casino. Which gave me one last bit of quality time with the Crazy Girls. So… of the most famous casinos on the strip more than fifty years ago.. (eo 11 clip) --made famous by the original ocean’s eleven… only one is left. The Riviera is making way for more convention space… but there is still much to be done on the north strip. (resorts/fountainebleu) One of the last great showplaces in Vegas… but well past its glory days… The Riviera will live on… in our memories. http://www.wochit.com
