Some seriously lousy turnaround time here at Brevity. It really does seem to take a few months before I remember to revisit this series. My apologies.
On occasion I like to scour the Las Vegas area (via Google Maps rather than car) to find neighborhoods where the streets are quirkily named. Past themes: Star Wars, confusion, baseball.
It's as good a time as any to introduce gambling. Click to enlarge:
There are many gaming-themed street names in town, but this section of town just east of Boulder Highway is the largest one I could find. It's kind of generic -- there's nothing specific to the history of Vegas, such as it is. Most of the roads describe some aspect of card playing, with a few dice and sports book exceptions. Still, not a slot machine reference in sight.
Big Red Court seems a little out of place -- was the developer a gum chewer or a cheerleading movie fan? But a quick search tells me that there used to be a Big Red's Casino.
(P.S. More fun with Bring It On here.)
