Aces Casino Blog: Time For A Look Into The Aces Useless Facts File - There's a Wal-Mart For Zombies?

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.

I'm attacking here first, if I'M a zombie.

#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.

$13 for the "Evil Robot Memory Eraser."

#3 -- Adams Drive-Thru Funeral Home

Now, I know that ALL of us are in a hurry, that we have so many things to do and take care of each and every day of our lives, but this HAS to be a little over-the-top.  The Adams Funeral Home offers the busiest of the busy in Los Angeles a chance at what I'd call the"Pit-Stop paying of respects."  Hey, if Uncle Frank wasn't your favorite uncle and you're not highly motivated to make a big scene, don't fret - You can pay your respects to the recently-deceased, and not even get out of your car.  Yes, it's a real place.  The link above is a must-visit, there's too much good stuff to print here. 

Convenience has hit an all-time low.

I had to do a U-Turn when I saw the "Drive Thru Viewing" sign when we passed it on the way to an event.  Too classic, you HAVE to love living on the West Coast.  Hey, to each their own.  At Aces Casino, the Orange County casino party leaders, we've always believed in the saying, "If there's a need, there's business to be had."  We're living proof.  LIVING, I said.  Don't go drivin' thru that place lookin' for US.  Oh, yes, we do the Los Angeles casino night party thing, too.  That's how we found the Adams Funeral Home in the first place.

So much for Issue #1 of the Aces Casino Useless Facts File.  We'll be back with another useless blog on Thursday, March 8, when we check out Part 2 of our Aces Casino Blog series regarding the "Cheaters of the Casinos."  See you on Thursday!
