The front Bay City Diner is now also run by the DuPars company and now is just called Du Pars. I know the prices have all gone up there and the menu has changed as well, but I didn't look to see what is on it now- as far as I know from the sign in the front,know they only have a daily special from4-6 pm where you pay whatever time it is when you order it ( ex ample $4.47 at 4:47 pm) but I don't know what they serve at that time. I am pretty certain the prime rib special no longer exists. Du Pars is apparently best known for pies and pancakes, both of which are supposed to be good.

It's no secret how much we love Du-Par's. And, if you're a fan of Downtown Vegas, chances are you do, too.
A Gamble in the Sand
How Las Vegas transformed itself from a railroad watering hole to the ‘Entertainment Capital of the World’

There is an ordinance in downtown Las Vegas thta requires casinos to maintain neon and animation signage, as opposed to the new-fangled video screens that are replacing more costly neon on The Strip.
Copied from http://www.a2zlasvegas.com/hotels/history/h-thunderbird.html - a phenominal Vegas website:
In 1946, attorney Cliff Jones, and Los Angeles developer and Nevada gambling pioneer, Marion Hicks, invested $2 million in a 111,000 Sq. foot new complex across from the El Rancho from Guy McAfee and his associates.
It was not until October of 1947, when building restrictions were met sufficiently, to allow construction to start.
