Klondike to Close June 30

The mighty Klondike is closing on June 30th.

From the Sun:

Torn down will be the stately, crimson-painted Klondike. Gone will be the four $2 limit blackjack tables, two 10-cent roulette wheels, and the 24-hour restaurant that offers 99-cent breakfast specials (two hotcakes and one egg) around the clock. Between 70 and 80 employees will have to find new jobs.

The new project to replace the Klondike, expected to cost $1 billion, will boast 1,200 hotel condominiums and an 80,000-90,000 square-foot casino. The McCarran International Airport height restriction on any project on the site is 25 stories; expect the new resort to touch that height, and construction could to begin in the first quarter of 2007.
