Before the hourly Fremont Street Experience started, Helaine took me to the Golden Gate Hotel. This is a Las Vegas tradition… actually more like a legend. You can go to the Golden Gate and get 99¢ shrimp cocktails!
They were very good. The sauce is strong and tangy. The tiny shrimp are more texture than taste. But, it’s amazing that it’s still 99¢.
And now, they’re gone! Well, at least they’re gone at 99¢.
News from me is reporting the price has doubled to $1.99. That’s sad.
You can’t blame them. I’m sure even at $1.99, this is a loss leader. Still, it’s sad to see the end of an era.
They were really tasty.
