Dry Gulch Excalibur

Another in a continuing series.

All the major properties on the Strip must, from time-to-time, drain their various water features for maintenance.

...and, of course, to rake up the tons of coins.

Though not a numismatist, I suspect that the cash collected by raking up "tons of coins" is only a tiny fraction of the cost to maintain the water features.

If the retreating waters reveals mermaids - that would probably pay the rent.

D! Please. They must get at least a thousand bucks, man!

At 3.1 grams each a ton of pennies is $2932; enough I suppose to hire some out of work real estate agents to scrub and paint a fountain every couple of months. Sprinkle in some quarters ($40k/ton) and perhaps it is possible to pay for the upkeep. However, Vegas tourism is flat and their average spend is down - so too the coin tossing...

Pennies aren't copper anymore D.

I've dated a few Vegas Mermaids.

With a tongue like a cow she can make you say WOW!

One holers have to try

Every now and then when your life gets complicated and the weasels start closing in, the only cure is to load up on heinous chemicals and then drive like a bastard from Hollywood to Las Vegas ... with the music at top volume and at least a pint of ether.

Dedicated to the other side of Las Vegas, namely; the sprawling, mad, incoherent underpinnings of the world's favorite destination.

That, and the occasional ranting about nothing in particular.
