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.

As anyone who has been downtown in the last few years knows, Fremont Street is chock-a-block with people trying anything to make a buck, and with the people who go there to see them.

The party atmosphere reached critical mass a few years ago and shows no signs of letting up, to the benefit of all downtown businesses.

    1. Now she would be worth a picture and tip. Not because she is an attractive young woman, which doesn't hurt. It's because she has Old School Vegas Panache.
