I am so upset, (not really), about the way the new Golden Nugget owners are trying to revive "The Old Vegas" on the Casino TV show with lame acts. They invite great magicians like Lance Burton and Mac King to dinner and surround them with Snarf and the a bunch of cross-dressers. Now Snarf and the girly men are not old Vegas but I'll bet Lance and Mac can do vintage acts if hired.

So here is the question, who were the old Vegas magicians and what did they perform? Scarne? Grippo?
Nothing would get done at all, if man waited so long that no one could find fault with it.

Jack Kodell was the first magician to be a head liner in Las Vegas. He was in a show at the original El Rancho.

I think I read somewhere that Harry Houdini was in Las Vegas long time ago ?
Is it true?
