Pioneer Hotel and Gambling Hall (also known as the Pioneer Casino)
One day last week we were taking a walk along the Riverwalk behind the Pioneer.

We were happy to see that the Cowboy sign (River Rick, who has sometimes been called Laughlin Lou) was still completely lit up. No burned out bulbs, all the neon working. All the letters on the sign lit up.

As we got closer we realized something a bit shocking. His arms were moving! So was his cigarette and he was winking. This is the first time we have ever seen the sign operating as it should. From comments and emails we have received it sounds like it has been many years since River Rick has been fully lit up and operational. We love it and say "Good Job" to the Pioneer and management who finally made this happen.

Later that night there was also a beautiful sunset lighting up the sky with pink hues.
