Too much "Hard" not enough "Rock"

From the LV Sun:
The owner of the international Hard Rock brand no longer wants its name associated with the Las Vegas Hard Rock hotel-casino and is suing to cancel their licensing agreement, citing negative publicity from the Rehab pool parties and reality TV series.
Not sure about you guys, but there isn't enough chlorine in the world to get us to dip our toe into that pool.

A million years ago, before the wheel n' such, I used to go to the Rio pool parties. A class act. Lots of fun.

These new pool parties look kind of lame. It could just be my age showing, who knows. (In those pre-historic times the Rio had just taken over the night life spot from the "Shark Club," a pre-historic hot spot of interspecies mingling.)

Looks like fun!

Bring back "The Drink" and foam dancing night.

Read the book "hot chicks with douchebags" and you will never look at these pool parties the same.

Bring back "The Beach" and bartenders throwing stacks of cocktail napkins into the crowd.

God, that place was horrible.

If by horrible, you mean awesome.

With the Shark Club reference, you definitely dated yourself. That place was killer fun to a high school senior with a fake ID.

The shark club restrooms had more action on a slow night than Pure does on a Saturday night.

Sex, drugs, and rock & roll. I love the Hard Rock...I'm so glad its not just a played out museum of rock & roll memorabilia like the Hard Rock cafes and hotels in other cities. Always exciting...even if the pool water has a brown hue.

What about Botanys on Flamingo in the 90's?

Do not diss The Beach!!! Countless criminal defense attorney's snorted their first line off a hooker's ass at that place. Also, that's where an incredible number of DA's caught their first social disease.
