O'Shea's Casino on Vegas Strip Shutting its Doors
LAS VEGAS (AP) - A 23-year-old Irish-themed casino on the Las Vegas Strip is going dark to make way for a major entertainment district.
O'Shea's Casino is set to close at noon Monday after urging patrons to "drink us dry" over the weekend.
The casino's parent company is making way for a $500 million Linq Project, which will include an outdoor shopping and dining area and a giant observation wheel.
Caesars Entertainment executives say they'll bring back the casino's distinctive casual atmosphere, live music and beer pong in a reinvented O'Shea's within the Linq project.
O'Shea's employs about 300 people. Casino officials say they've been trying to place them in other jobs within the company.
