As I understand it, Binion's has unfortunately boarded up its hotel operation until the economy brightens. The gaming and restaurants are still open in the interim which is reason enough to give it a visit. The view from their Ranch Steakhouse along with the quality meal are spectacular and the casino is still a great little value and action play worth patronizing.
It's just that you'll have to flop at the Nugget when both the whiskey and fatigue call. Too bad. Another Vegas classic on the economic gallows.
