    Circus Circus, in a warehouse, not a crack house.

    Easy enough without looking. Let us try to stay on the same theme daily and make the questions harder as they go along.

    What was delivered to Dan Tanna's doorstep in the first episode? How much was delivered? What was the container made of? What was the brand?

    Alright so that is a 4 part question... try not to cheat but I would never hold it against anyone who does.

    That was good. I certainly did not know that. I like how it stays along the Vegas Theme with Swingers. He certainly does seem to have gotten big in Hollywood while staying unknown or behind the scenes. Impressive.

    Alright it appears nobody is interested in the 3 season show VEGAS. I like how Robert goes to another show not long after and makes another run of it with a similar character and only makes it another 3 seasons. My problem with both shows, and I truly love the Spenser novels by Robert B. Parker... I named my doge after Spenser actually! I wanted two labs actually. One Golden and one Black. I was gonna name them Spenser and Hawk. However, living in Vegas and with a house that doesn't have much of a yard, more so a patio. I decided to do things differently after I had to put down our 13 year old mixed gentle pit bull. So researching breeds, I realized that Retrievers were gonna be very large and the deal breaker was that they will shed at least 3 times of year. They will not just shed but your whole house will be covered in hair and large amounts of hair will clump up everywhere from my understanding. So I searched around. I ran into some add on Craigslist and I found some little puppy that looked like a stuffed animal. We had just lost Harley a day or so prior and I felt that it would be best to bring a puppy in the house asap. I figured this might help my wife soften the blow. So these people claimed to rescue dogs. That this dog was rescued from the streets of Mexico. You have to say Mexico like Mey He Co! That doesn't really matter. True or not, since the price was only 150 per dog and the other dog was the brother, I naturally bought both! I thought I was getting some sort of pit bull mix. I found out later after research that I have actually purchased two whippet mixes. I thought the dogs would be around 80lbs when fully grown. Thankfully they are only around 40lbs. They have the most energy of any dogs I have ever had but they also will crash for 15 hours at a time. A true couch potato! A true bi-polar dog which fits in nicely in my opinion. I like the extreme highs and lows. I also like the constant attention these dogs give anyone.

    What happened? I typed all that out? Some sort of strange out of body experience, hijacking this thread. I apologize! So where was I? Oh, yeah. Spenser For Hire. My dog Spenser. I wanted to name the other Hawk but it is a girl and brown not black. This will not work. I tried to think of the names in the Spenser series and I kept coming up with Rachel. So Rachel it is. After going back and researching isn't it funny or ironic that Rachel comes from "Looking For Rachel Wallace" who is a a lesbian and a feminist activist. They tell me God isn't real. They tell me that God doesn't have a sense of humor. I disagree!

    Back on topic here are the four answers nobody knew or wanted to actually take the time to look it up on youtube by watching 2 mins of the pilot. The problem with this show and Spenser For Hire was that after you watched a few episodes it was basically the same show over and over and over so you only needed to see a few episodes. I have all the episodes on DVD for both VEGAS and Spenser for Hire and still watch them all. I like Urich. I actually suggest reading all the Spenser Novels by Robert B. Parker. I enjoy them all the time and I think they are very good in story and in writing style. I did not like the follow up with the Jesse Stone novels or the movies, with a favorite of mine... Tom Selleck.

    2. 2 quarts or 1/2 gallon works
    3. Cardboard Cartons... I suppose those weren't BPA Free??
    4. Anderson

    I don't think we have enough interest in VEGAS to continue on with more stupid Trivia.

    Nevada has had legalized gambling since the thirties. Atlantic City, New Jersey has had legalized gambling since 1978. What was the next jurisdiction in the United States to legalize gambling?

    Just a guess, but I'm going to say Iowa.

    I think the first casino opened in Mississippi in 1992.

    Deadwood, South Dakota was the next jurisdiction, after Nevada and Atlantic City, to legalize gambling. It occurred in 1989.
