You may have noticed the coconut
that permeates the air in the Mirage
and Mandalay Bay, or the
old-lady perfume smell in the Venetian.
When asked if they pump this scent through the air system, the
answer from the employees is always "no". Well, a little research
has revealed that they are lying to us. Aroma Systems Inc.
manufactures the devices that do just that. And they list these and
other Vegas resorts as their clients.

size difference between the Dunes and Bellagio towers.
The Bellagio tower is not as symmetrical as it looks.
See why hereWhen the Stratosphere
tower was under construction, somebody in charge thought they had made a
rather large error as
the curvature of the north east leg
appeared to be wrong. They compensated for the error and
continued pouring concrete (altering the original curve) until they
realized there never was a problem. Now the incorrectly
corrected leg was going too straight. Another adjustment was
made to get it back into alignment. This is easily visible today.

There are several supposedly haunted hotels in Las Vegas, here are a few
1. The Luxor Sightings of a ghost
have been seen roaming the long room hallways that encircle the pyramid.
Three men lost their lives during construction of the pyramid tower.
Others say the place is cursed and will remain so until the image of
an eye is installed at the pinnacle of the tower, outside. 2. The Flamingo
Some say they see Bugsy Siegel's ghost wandering the gardens near the
site of his (long ago demolished) suite, when the shadows grow long,
before sunset. Bugsy was killed in LA, but some believe that
spirits return to places they love.3. Bally's
During the fire of 1980 (when Bally's was the MGM Grand), 84 people lost
their lives. There have been many reports of sightings in the older
buildings of this hotel.4. Las Vegas Hilton

Legendary bassist for the Who, John Entwistle died there in 20027. Stratosphere
Despite alarms, fences, and security personnel, four people have leapt to
their deaths from the top of the more than 1,000-foot tall tower. The
most current was 2/3/2006 when a 27-year-old man from Bristol, England
took his last big step.
When the Luxor hotel opened in 1993, there was a river that encircled
the casino level and was intended to ferry guests to the elevators. But
when people complained about the 90-minute wait, the Luxor decided to
let guests walk to the elevators and promote the ride as the Nile River
Adventure. The 15-minute guided barge tour drifted past the Valley of
the Queens, King Ramses temple, and other Egyptian-style art. The
river was removed as part of a major interior remodeling in 1995. The movie "Casino",
is based on
the history of Frank "Lefty" Rosenthal of the Stardust. In the movie the
Riviera was used for the interior shots and the Landmark's porte-cochere
was used for the exterior shots.
Frank Rosenthal was played by Robert De Niro and his name was changed to
Sam "Ace" Rothstein in the film. Frank Rosenthal died on
10/14/08 and until then, he maintained a
website where he answered readers questions.

Window Eye Trick
The Bellagio, Caesars Augustus tower and Treasure Island all have an
architectural feature designed to trick the eye into seeing the
buildings as smaller (thus closer) than they really are. Each window covers four rooms
on two floors. Wynn Las Vegas uses the same trick, in that there are two
floors between each white stripe.
Fake Rivets The original Eiffel
Tower was built in 1889 and is made of wrought iron pieces
which are fastened together with 2,500,000 rivets. The one in Vegas is
made from welded steel and is stronger structurally and has "fake
rivets" to duplicate the look of the original.
Grey Water Las Vegas is currently
in the middle of a drought, yet there are seemingly wasteful
water features like fountains, waterfalls, the four acre lake at Wynn
Las Vegas and the ten acre, 27 million gallon lake and Fountains of
Bellagio. Well, fret not, as the water used in these water features is
"grey-water". Grey-water is the reclaimed water from the sinks, bathtubs
and showers of the hotel which is then filtered, cleaned and
chlorinated. OK, I know what you're thinking, and the answer is NO, not
the toilets, that's called black-water. The black-water drains through a
separate system to the city's sewers.

"when we decided to list our home in North Las Vegas, I researched several companies and set up interviews with them. After meeting with Rick in our home, we knew Brenkus Realty was the right fit for us. Our home sold quickly. Everyone at the Brenkus team with whom we came into contact was extremely professional. courteous, responsive, and diligent in executing the tasks at hand to bring the sale and close of escrow to fruition. We were especially impressed with our Brenkus escrow manager, Rachel Monfort. We are relocating to North Carolina, but if we needed another real estate company in the Vegas area, I would definitely choose Brenkus again. "
