Well most of the days begin at 6 or 7 am elsewhere in the world, not in […]
On Veterans Day 2011, the Venetian and Palazzo Hotel and Casinos changed their “neon” signs to reflect red, white and blue in honor of those who are and have served in the military. It was a great sight to see on the Vegas strip. Well done Venetian and Palazzo, well done !
