Frontier Hotel 1942-2007

"This is the end result of all the bright lights... and the comp trips, of all the champagne... and free hotel suites,
and all the broads and all the booze. It's all been arranged just for us to get your money.
That's the truth about Las Vegas. We're the only winners. The players don't stand a chance. "

-- Sam "Ace" Rothstein, Casino, 1995

Las Vegas Car of the Week #14

Interesting ride I saw near my neighborhood in Henderson aka "Hendertucky."

  1. Speaking of the term Hendertucky, how do you, as a resident of Henderson, react to the use of the term and what is its precise meaning to you?

  2. I think Henderson is pretty nice, especially GVR where I live. The Hendertucky makes me laugh -- I don't care either way. I don't think it's a hick town or anything like that. But there is an element of desert trash here and there -- so I guess Hendertucky is appropriate for certain areas, fortunately not too much of the city.

  3. Okay. Thanks for your comments. I've heard the term Hendertucky and feel that while sometimes it humorous sometimes there is an element of truth. People from Kentucky may be amused by it and people in Henderson may be amused by it, but often there is a core element of truth to any such designations.

    Its obvious that certain areas of the Boulder Strip have some very low class housing. As does some areas near downtown where slot parlors have locked doors.
