The story goes like this . . .

Back in the 1980s Vegas was predominately a city that catered to adults with the exception of Circus Circus. Families welcome. So a family of 4 goes to enjoy a vacation: mom, dad and their 2 young boys.

One of the boys wanders off and enters the casino area. He finds a quarter on the floor and drops it into the nearest slot machine. And WHAM - he hits the jackpot for $1 million.

Circus Circus refused to pay out the jackpot. At ever entrance to their casino is a sign: YOU MUST BE 18 YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER TO GAMBLE HERE. The boy was 10. The family sued and lost. The Nevada Gaming Commision upheld the casinos decision. They ruled it was an illegal bet.

Is it a true story? Or is it a made up one?

July 1985. My business partner and I decide to take a week's vacation in San Francisco. I've never been there or CA nor has my partner. It's the middle of the summer going to CA. Packed shorts and T-shirts.

We arrive at about 10 PM at night. Weather is warmish. No problem. The next morning we are going to Alcatraz for the tour. Have breakfast and as we are drinking our final cups of coffee we watch the fog roll in and the temperature drops from about 77 to 50 degrees.

Off we go to buy sweats, long pants and jackets. Never once did I wear any of the clothes I brought with me. We did it all and then some. Great vacation. Eating Dungess crabs almost every night for dinner.

We enter a restaurant and after looking at the menu I asked the waiter why they didn't serve Rice-A-Roni - the San Francisco Treat. He laughed and told me no restaurant has it. It is just a marketing strategy and a very successful one as you are not the only person to ask for it.

Lee, I did the same thing when I went to San Diego for work a few years ago. They told me that it's called, "May Haze and June Gloom." The weather wasn't anything like I expected but it was still a cool place to visit.

IMO . . . it definitely looks better without the vinyl top. What say you?
