Stardust To Close

The worst news of 2006? The closing of the venerable Stardust, just shy of her 50th birthday. And what a run the Stardust had... starting place for Vegas icons Siegfried & Roy, long time home of Wayne Fucking Newton and big time gangster hideout. At one point - 25% of the people listed in the famous 'Black Book' were employed at the Stardust. But now, the doors are closed, the property is boarded up, and the famous marquee has gone dark. With only an implosion to look forward to, we offer this miniature salute to the dearly departed Stardust.
