    What is currently at the specific location of the original O'Sheas? Is it Guy Fieri's? Or was it closer to Flamingo?

    No, Cromwell was Barbary Coast and Bill’s. The ordinal O’Shea’s is the Linq across the street from Flamingo. It went Harrah’s, Imperial Palace, O’Shea’s then Flamingo and Barbary Coast. Next stop Bally’s.

    O'sheas was where the Linq entrance from the promenade is.
    It went back to the area around the old tag bar.

    Is that really August 2011? My memories are from about fifteen years earlier. As I recall everything was more blurry and much farther apart.

    I need more specifics: where was the Burger King? The beer pong tables? That weird jewelry counter and that altitudally enshortened individual in green who would kick you in the shins? Gonna have to go a little deeper than StreetView for that. Smiley face thing.

    Same here! My first trip included a lot of fun moments there. I think it was the first time I was in a casino doing “casino things”.

    I remember once years ago that O'Sheas had one Blackjack table and it was right in front of the open section to the right of the main sign. My friend & I sat down at the $2 Blackjack table and before the cocktail waitress even made it back with the beers we had ordered, we had both lost $20. So we both got the hell out of there with no beers..

    O'sheas was even more fun before the beer pong tables and Burger King went in.
    There was a small lounge behind the back bar, where they had some good music. Then there was the Donnybrook Buffet beyond that.
    $2.99 breakfast and they were always giving out 2-4-1 coupons for it!
    Also used to give out free drink coupons as you would pass by. I'd save them up all day and drink for free all night.

    And they used to have that Craps table almost on the sidewalk of The Strip.
    Our group had one hell of a time there one afternoon. we all wore crazy gambling shirts.
    I think I made 7 points on one of my rolls.
    These two guys that were there and one wanted to leave and his buddy said , not until
    the last crazy shirt guy rolls.

    and of course, who could forget Brian..

    I believe Brian is some kind of manager at current O’Sheas. Anybody have specifics on his current position?

    last time I talked to him him he had a suit on was working as a greeter/spokesman
    many years ago he was working at the old aladdin and was working for the frank sinatra slot tourney i was invited to.
    had a tux on and was cheering on the players. If you lined up three sinatras he would
    boom out FRANKIE FRANKIE FRANKIE
    he had kounts kustoms redesign a 3 wheel spider for him.

    One of my most specific memories of an early trip to Vegas was Brian standing outside O'Sheas with a microphone. He was using his DJ voice and advertising beer pong inside. That was the day I fell in love with Vegas..
