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

Gold and Silver Pawn


I took this photo at 4pm on a Sat. in August.  Temp. was 110f in the shade, not in the sun like these folks were standing in.  What you see is a line of people waiting to enter Gold and Silver Pawn aka Pawn Stars pawn shop.  Thoughts of a random person in line:  I am on vacation in LV, I am happy, I can handle this heat, I love Pawn Stars, I love Chum Lee, I will talk to Rick, I will be on TV...

Attention USA and the rest world:  Pawn Stars on History Channel is a cool show and you might even learn something about history or popular culture...  But the pawn shop is not worth waiting in line for.  Yes, they have lots of interesting and valuable stuff that you see on TV...  However,  If you think you are going to hang out and take pictures with the guys from the show?  As Rick likes to say when he does his deals...   "That's not going to happen."

  1. Yeah, it may be foolish for them to stand in the hot sun just to look at some darned pawn shop, but look at how much better off they are than those who stand in line to get into some nightclub hoping to see some screaming strutters and paying 300.00 a bottle to do it.

  4. There are so many cool things to do there! I visited that shop, and I also went to check out Las Vegas Tee Times, because my husband and I are really big golfers, and we love to golf on every vacation we take. We did a lot of gambling too!
