Ah, man.... The STAR TREK section of the Hilton Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas is closing down. I guess the Star Trek Experience just isn't pulling in the crowds anymore.
One of our "Vegas Traditions" is eating lunch at QUARK'S BAR & RESTAURANT. It was a lame, but fun restaurant with a Star Trek theme. In addition to employees walking around in costume (and character!), the menu had items like "Flaming Ribs of Targ", "Sulu Toss", "Warp Core Breach", "Klingon Kabobs", "Rings of Betazed", and "James Tea Kirk". We would get annihilated on BORG SPHERES; green alcoholic drinks that spew smoke! Seriously, I would be stumbling out of there... usually into the Star Trek gift shop where, in a blurry mess, buy some stupid Trek item I would later regret upon sobering up. The whole Quark's Bar experience is an uber-nerdy but fun to jump in and be silly... and wasted.
But alas, they are closing it down sometime this Fall. I won't be able to make it to Vegas before then, so if anyone else goes, drink a Borg Sphere for Jimmy!
