Riders with John Ascuaga

Celebrated our friend John Ascuaga's 89th birthday in Reno last night with the Ascuaga family and hundreds of John's friends. So many great memories of Nugget shows...with Bertha the Elephant, Fishboy, the zaniest stage crew in the business. John Ascuaga's Nugget Casino Resort is under new ownership now...big changes and upgrades planned...but we met and talked to the new regime, and we're confident the spirit and friendly hospitality John and his family made legendary will stay in place.

Thanks for a great run, John! "I'm glad to have been here when giants walked the earth," observed Too Slim.
