Westward Ho! Serves Last Megadog November 16th

The fabulously greasy Westward, Ho! is closing November 16th. Last chance for dollar beers and the colon blowing MegaDog!

Yet another condo project?

Very possibly this is part of the continuing lawsuit over the botched sale of the vintage strip landmark.

While the Ho! itself, dosen't have a huge value beyond the land its built on, the 80 year old craps dealers do. Someone please hire these guys.

From the Las Vegas Sun: The Westward Ho hotel and casino will close Nov. 17 and is in the process of being sold, a company official said Wednesday.

The Westward Ho, which opened in 1965 and sits between the Circus Circus and Stardust properties at the north end of the Strip, is the latest aging casino to change hands amid the hottest real estate market in history.

But experts familiar with the transaction said the buyer in question is Centex Corp., a Dallas-based homebuilder that has been eyeing Las Vegas for condominium development. The company operates several business units besides its homes division, including a resort unit that has built Italian-themed condos at Lake Las Vegas in Henderson as well as other units in Hawaii and Florida.
