North Las Vegas, NV – 2008

Anything with the word “Atomic” in it, like, you know, man? And “Atomic Liquor” or “Atomic Cocktails” is even better.

This is in the less modern, more seedy side of Vegas. My guess is the name is a holdover – you think? – from the days when being “Atomic” was still kind of cool, sort of. The days when people would gather on Vegas rooftops to watch the above-ground nuclear detonations way in the distance, at the Nevada Test Site. It was apparently quite a show.

Tell that to the downwinders, though, in Saint George, Utah, whose cancer cluster rates are way off the charts.
