Royal Flusher's Daily Vegas Pic - June 21, 2018 - Hail Caesars Palace

Well, it's that time of year again.

Whether you call it Midsummer (celebrate naked and drink), the Solstice (celebrate and drink), Gŵyl Ganol yr Haf (celebrate and drink), Mittumaari (dance naked and drink), or the Longest Day (invade Normandy and drink), today is something special.

Today marks the start of the long, slow decline into the harsh, empty, frozen hell of dark, dark, winter.

If you need sunshine and light, it doesn't get any better than today.

So line up with Stonehenge, have a shot, and toast old Sol.

Because... Winter is Coming.

Royal Flusher's Daily Vegas Pic - June 20, 2018 - Plaza Las Vegas Club Golden Gate

Plaza Las Vegas Club Golden Gate special sauce lettuce cheese pickles onions on a sesame seed bun.

Say that three times fast.

Here's a view from the Plaza south tower looking at the Las Vegas Club.

Back when it still had lights.

And a building.

It's all gone now, but I'm excited for the coming project at 18 Fremont Street, rumored to be named "The E".

Royal Flusher's Daily Vegas Pic - June 19, 2018 - Fremont Street Experience Showgirl

Today's photo marks the turning point of the Fremont Street Experience - and with it, all of Las Vegas' downtown entertainment district.

This is the start of the outdoor entertainment scene on the street itself. I first spotted a woman in a beautiful classic showgirl costume the year before.

I got my photo taken with her and she politely suggested a tip after we chatted for a while.

I still remember my $5 bill being stashed discretely in a little purse she had.

This photo is from 2011, and what started as an experiment the year before had been successful enough to continue.

Royal Flusher's Daily Vegas Pic - June 18, 2018 - Mountain of Dice

You never know when you are going to find an art.

Like this art, which was painted on the wall of the Fremont Hotel and Casino in Artful Downtown Las Vegas.

I love this thing!

It's whimsical and there's color and dice. Ah hell, this thing is chock full of whimsical!

I'm not sure who painted it but there is a little logo in the corner that should not be overlooked.

Savvy observers of the Daily Vegas Pic will notice that the corner pictured above does not appear in the main image.
