Geeky Friday: Test Yourself On Where These Neon Letters Come From

There are few things we like better than a blast of retro Vegas so not only are we delighted that the Neon Boneyard reopened in September, but were especially excited to read in the Weekly this week that the new park is finished and ready to open to the public next month. In fact, its so ready that the sign has already been switched on.

Its not just any old sign, either its a test for those of you who think you know your Vegas. Recognize that E? Its a replica of the Caesars lettering. One N is from the Nugget, another from the Desert Inn, and the O is from the Horseshoe. The only difference from the original marquees is that this sign is made from eco-friendly LED lights rather than the original neon. Something green in Vegas? Someone get us a chair, we need a seat.

The entire Boneyard renovation project will be completed in the spring when the visitor center and museum opens in the old lobby of the La Concha motel, but well make sure we pop by to check out the park next month.

The rest of the sign...

Is that also the star from the "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign and the stars from the Stardust?
