Fun Fact 1: Sin City wasn't always the home of reality show romantic dates and d-bag bachelor parties. Vilija Joyce submitted this photo of her be-dressed grandma and lucky gramps flanked by two groovy friends on Fremont street in 1958. (click on the photo for a closer look)
Fun Fact 2: People used to get really dressed up to walk the strip. And I'm not talking shiny suits and platform heels.
Fun Fact 3: The Mint (behind those kooky hipsters) was the first stop for Hunter Thompson in his "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" jaunt.
Fun Fact 4: I just read fun fact 3 on Wikipedia. I didn't actually read the book, let me just get that off my chest.
