We’re going to flip this week’s Vegas News around. The big insidery news from MGM Resorts will be at the end of the post. (Hint: New Vegas)
18 Fremont Becomes Circa – You may have heard that the official name of 18 Fremont is Circa. The new casino being built on the land once occupied by Las Vegas Club, Mermaids, and the unforgettable Glitter Gulch is scheduled to open in December 2020.
