Here’s today’s thing you might not know about Las Vegas: The Stardust was the first hotel in Sin City to add a sports book to its casino.

We found this photo in our personal photo album. We loved the Stardust.

In a spectacularly bone-headed move (at least in retrospect), the Stardust was imploded on March 13, 2007.

    Not True. It was the Union Plaza downtown that was the first casino to have a sports book. Circus Circus was the first Strip hotel to add sports book.
