Enjoying our last deep-fried Oreos at Mermaids in Las Vegas

One of my favorite treats in Downtown Las Vegas is the deep-fried Oreos at the snack bar at Mermaids, a dumpy little dive of a casino on Fremont Street. The double order Kathryn and I shared this past Saturday afternoon set us back $2.14, tax included.

This will almost certainly be our last order, since Mermaids is closing later this month. I hear the property is now owned by the owner of The D. If the snack bar ever does reopen, I imagine it’ll be full of twenty-somethings and the Oreos will cost $6.50.
