    Just found a photo taken in the original showroom when Liberace was performing. He was still one of the best acts we have ever seen in Las Vegas. This photo has to be in the late 60s. I remember having flowers in the room when we arrived and having reservations made for dinners and shows anywhere in the city. I love Las Vegas.
