On Monday, May 16, the Sahara hotel and casino closed its doors after 59 years. BZA paid tribute to the venerable casino with kamikaze mini shots and a High Life chaser.
Sahara was home to $1 blackjack, a sweet Corvette that no one managed to win, and Danny, the best bartender in Vegas. I lucked out and managed to get a nice hat and shirt combo comped at the gift shop, but foolishly left behind $11 in comps. The Sahara shall remained closed indefinitely, at least until Perfection casino opens in 2020 or so.
