The Sahara Is Closing
» filed under Mergers & Acquisitions comments: 39
We've been hearing rumblings through Las Vegas public relations channels that an announcement about the future of the Sahara will be released to the press tomorrow morning, Friday March 11, 2011.
The announcement, as we deduced two weeks ago, is that the property will be closed and put into mothballs until SBE entertainment feels that a renovation makes financial sense or they elect to sell.
Since Culinary Union agreements require 60 day advance notice of property closure/termination, we can peg the earliest date for closure of Sahara to take place on or around the 15th of May 2011, ending 59 years of legendary fun times.
