Every once in a while, the Aces Casino Blog has decided to spend some time looking into some of what this Orange County casino party company staff would call the "amazing, amusing and confusing" things we stumble across as we put together our little internet parakeet paper. With that in mind, we welcome you to Issue #1 of the "Aces Casino Useless Facts File - Places you may never heard of!" (Please hold all throwing of rotten fruit until the end.)
#1 -- "The Zombie Apocalypse Store"
Instantly a useless fact favorite around our Orange County casino night crew. Have you ever sat around your house after watching an episode of "The Walking Dead" and asked yourself, "Hey, what do I do when those zombies attack me?" Today is your lucky day, my friends. If you thought there was no such store like that to fill your needs, you'd be mistaken.
"The Zombie Apocalypse Store" is located on Spring Mountain Road in the heart of Las Vegas, and features everything that you could POSSIBLY need to fend off those pesky zombies, should they attack -- Food, Water, Weapons, and even "exploding targets," which I suppose you'd need, but we can't figure out why. My favorite item was the "200 serving food bucket," which has potato soup, Italian pasta, and Tuscan butter noodles." Wow, the undead can't get here fast enough for me. Least favorite item? Gotta be the stun gun. Heck, if they're that close to me, I'm gonna need more than a stun gun. I saw the show, those dudes are quicker than before. I'm slow! That ain't gonna work.
#2 -- The Echo Park Time Travel Mart
Makes perfect sense to us. Every time we'd watch "Back To The Future" on the Aces Casino TV, we'd wonder to ourselves, "Wow, where the HECK do we go to find an "Evil Robot Memory Eraser?" Good question -- You never wanna be caught without one of THOSE. Better to have it and not need it, you know. Well, wonder no more, my Blog-buddies - The Echo Park Time Travel Mart is here for you. It's on Sunset Boulevard in L.A., and has what we'd classify as "niche items for sale; Things like English gunpowder, Centurion helmets, even a "50-year calendar." Yeah, like I'd know what year it was when I got out of the DeLorean, anyway. Cool place, make sure you have an hour to see everything. You won't be sorry.
