Sayonara Barbary Bill's Saloon and Sluttery

Moments ago, Bill's Gamblin' Hall and Saloon closed.
To true fans, Bill's never opened. We weeped when Barbary Coast fell into the hands of then Harrah's, now Caesars Entertainment... one of the last independent shit holes on The Strip had been assimilated into the Borg, given a new old name and half-heartedly turd polished.
It served us well as a place to pee and grab beer. Or as a temporary stop gap between O'Sheas and the new O'Sheas. But as an edifice in and of it self, Bills decayed rapidly in its final few years until the inside smelled worse than the pre-renovation Plaza and that was pretty goddamn bad - a steamy mix of moldy hot dogs, sweaty gym socks, stale beer and fresh puke.
I love independent shitholes as much as the next guy... but I for one am glad to see Bill's close even if it is to become the latest douchetastic boutique resort and clubsino.
