>>>STILL AHEAD... GEORGE KNAPP WILL TELL YOU HOW TO SEE INSIDE OF AREA FIFTY-ONE... VO=:40 (***VO***)

STREET TALK HAS LONG FANATSIZED ABOUT WHAT THE INSIDE OF AREA 51 LOOKS LIKE. AND NOW WE KNOW, SORT OF. JUST AS WE SUSPECTED, THE PLACE HAS ALL SORTS OF SPACEY STUFF HANGING AROUND, INCLUDING WEIRD LIGHTS, SOME OF WHICH ALMOST LOOK LIKE THEYRE ALIEN SHIPS SHOOTING THEIR PHASER BEAMS....UNLIKE ITS UNNAMED NAMESAKE, THIS AREA 51 IS COMPLETELY ACCESSIBLE. IT'S A NEW, ALIEN THEMED BAR INSIDE THE PALLADIUM NIGHTCLUB, ON INDUSTRIAL ROAD BEHIND THE MIRAGE. OWNER SAME SALDE DECIDED TO SWITCH THEMES, FROM COWBOYS TO SPACEMEN, BECAUSE THE REAL BASE ALREADY HAS A REPUTATION....

((Sam Salde, Area 51 Owner: tried to pick a theme thats real interesting. area 51 is mysterious, nationally known, that builds interest.))

SALDE BOUGHT UP MUCH OF HIS SPACE STUFF FROM BOB STUPAK'S VEGAS WORLD..... AS OF WEDNESDAY, WORK CREWS WERE STILL TRYING TO GET THE PLACE READY FOR ITS THURSDAY NIGHT GRAND OPENING. OUTSIDE, THEYVE ERECTED A MOCK ELECTRIFIED FENCE AND WILL PLACE A FRIED PUNK ROCKER DUMMY ON TOP. INSIDE THE FENCE IS A MILITARY JEEP WITH A FETCHING ALIEN PASSENGER, NOT UNLIKE WHAT SOME PEOPLE SAY THEYVE SEEN UP IN THE GROOM MOUNTAINS. SELDE DELIGHTS IN TEASING PEOPLE ABOUT THE NAME. (("She says YOU CANT GET INTO AREA 51. I SAY, I GET INTO AREA 51 ALL THE TIME.)) SALDE ADDS THE CLUB IS A WORK IN PROGRESS AND WILL CHANGE THE MORE HE LEARNS ABOUT ET'S.

ON A SIMILAR NOTE, STREET TALK IS LOOKING FOR YOUR HELP. IF YOU LIVED IN LAS VEGAS IN 1962 AND REMEMBER SEEING OR READING ABOUT A GIANT FIREBALL WHICH EXPLODED NEAR HERE, PLEASE GIVE US A CALL OR DROP US A LINE. GIANT FIREBALL. APRIL '62...THAT WILL BE A FUTURE WORD ON THE STREET, I'M GK.))
