'Sahara Tahoe' Hotel to close in June: The 'Horizon Tahoe' (Sahara Tahoe) will be closing permanently on June 5, 2009. It had been projected for 2010 however with the fast downturn in the economy the gambling and holiday industry has been hard hit. Earlier this month it already had to downsize its casino and lay off 75 workers.
"There's an oversupply of gaming product in the marketplace," said a spokesman for the Horizon's owner, Tropicana Entertainment. Englehart said no reductions are planned at Tropicana's other Tahoe casino, the MontBleu. The MontBleu, formerly Caesars Tahoe, was extensively remodelled in 2006, while the Horizon has been depicted in court papers as a rundown property. It's a sad moment since a lot of fans will now never get the chance to see the great setting the Sahara Tahoe was for Elvis' other casino seasons outside Las Vegas.
The Praytome book about Elvis' performances in Lake Tahoe is well-worth checking out. Click here for info. (http://www.behind-the-image.com/htm-data/book_tahoe/englisch/book.htm)

That makes me so sad. That was where we saw Elvis the second time and we're able to get up really close to the stage.:'(

Unfortunately, with the passing of time we will start to see many things that was associated with Elvis slowly being torn down or vanishing. He has been gone almost 32 years and thats a very long time. In another 10 years or so there will be alot of "his" people gone. It is so sad to think of a world with noone in it that was once a part of Elvis' life.:'( While they all die off Elvis will still be with us the way we remember him.....young and beautiful!:blush:
