Royal Flusher's Daily Vegas Pic - Aug 26, 2017 - Imperial Palace





Way at the back of the Imperial Palace (aka the Inferior Palace, aka the Interior Smellass, aka the Quad, aka the Dinq) was a bar. Back at the back, on the south side.

It might have been the Mai Tai bar, and near there were some great old full pay coin dropper 25 cent 9/6 Jacks or Better machines. These ones were made by Sigma and had blocky Vic-20 style graphics. I'm talking some of the first video poker machines ever made.

And on one of those machines, I had a run that has never been equalled in my personal history - I played for a solid four hours on $20. Never fuck with a streak!

Within sniffing distance of these machines was the Men's room. I always got creeped out when I went in there. It was like I was walking into a train station in 1922 or something.

There was a shoe shine stand just in the door (which is not that much of an oddity, some are around even today, like at the Nugget and TI), and there was an attendant whose job it was to force towels and other sundries on you just after you were done taking a dump.


There were little bowls of candies and breath mints on display. You could take one... but why would you?

When your feet (or Hawaiian shirt) feel low, step inside!

Of course, this fellow worked for tips. I hope he made a shitload (pardon the pun) because I can't imagine a worse job than hanging around in the Men's room at the Imperial Palace for eight hours a day.

The best part of this Men's room though was the sign just inside the door, by the shine stand.

I loved it then, and I still do.

I wish I could have gotten my hands on that sign when they redid the place.

All Winners Look Sharp!

And that's the Pic of the Day for Saturday August 26, 2017.
