Ride The Bull, Again

We knew this would happen. In fact, we predicted it barely hours after former New Frontier owner Phil Ruffin took ownership of Treasure Island on March 20th 2009 with the headline Ruffin Takes Over TI, Installs Mechanical Bull.

Now, it is fact.

Our buddypal Steve J. R. Friess interviewed Mr. Ruffin for his latest column in the Las Vegas Weekly, the highlight of which is:

But here's what qualifies in Ruffinville as a major stamp: He's about to plunge $15 million to build a Gilley's-branded bar, restaurant and cafe that will jut off the southern tip of the resort.

Yes, Gilley's, as in the Urban Cowboy bar with the mechanical bulls. Ruffin had one at the New Frontier and continued to pay the licensing fees year after year "because I figured someday I might want to use it again."

That day has arrived. Now about those dirty girls...



Comments & Discussion:

They better have female mud-wrestling dammit! When is this joint set to open?? I need to be there opening night. If not mud wrestling maybe Jell-O? Chocolate syrup? Something?

Does Stoney's Rockin Country have female mud wrestling?? I know they have hot waitresses/bartenders.

I smell a new VT tradition. Have an annual VT Mechanical Bull Riding Championship.

@vespajet you first.

I've actually ridden a mechanical bull (The things ones does in their younger days to try to impress a broad.). It was at about half power and I stayed on for about 3-4 seconds before I slid off (already had a few in me and didn't have a great grip). I'd gladly give it a go again.

WOOHOO!!! Cold beer and dirty girls!!!

soooo changing the date of the wedding so we can make Tina ride the bull in her wedding dress

One more reason to stay at TI again. I never went into Gilley's when the New Frontier was open
