Welcome to 2024! We are excited to get the year started and clear up some Las Vegas myths with your help. We’re not always successful on our own, but we are fairly certain that we can bust these Vegas myths with some teamwork. Help us debunk these tales that have been circulating for decades.
For starters, there’s the story of the infamous Charles Manson posing for a photo with the Binion’s Horseshoe Million Dollar Display. Despite reports, we are still searching for any evidence that this photo actually exists. Another question we have is about the origins of the Las Vegas Strip’s name. Guy McAfee has been credited with naming the infamous street, but the story has some glaring inconsistencies. And finally, we seek the truth behind whether it was really Bugsy Siegel who named the Flamingo, or if the credit should go to the project’s original visionary, Billy Wilkerson.
While we have communicated with several sources and entities to seek the truth, we’re still looking for concrete evidence to support these theories. If you have any information that can help us debunk these myths, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Every Monday, we will be sharing updates on our progress in uncovering the truth behind these myths.
Here’s to a new year and a quest for facts! Happy New Year!
