"Mister SF Hank Donat was
hot on the trail of the City Hall bachelor party in Las Vegas over the
weekend. 'I don't know whether any of the City Hall Las Vegas road trippers
are carnivores, but if so and they're also feeling homesick, I've found
a taste of S.F. in tasteless L.V.,' Hank writes. 'Joe DiMaggio still has
a booth at the Golden Steer on Sahara Ave. The Golden
Steer is the oldest restaurant in Las Vegas. It's a real old-school
place, like Ernie's. I sat at Elvis Presley and Marlon Brando's booth,
seven feet of red vinyl. Cementing the sentiment, the Golden Steer happens
to be located in a strip mall called Frisco Plaza.'
