Mint Hotel

Before the Canopy
Before the canopy or light shows covered downtown Las Vegas, it was called Glitter Gulch for the many large and unique signs that lit up the streets. The Mint Hotel, famous for the largest desert race in the world, the Mint 400, was a staple of downtown clubs. They also had one of the finest gourmet restaurants called the "Top of the Mint" that overlooked the entire city.

Is there anyone there from the 60s through 80s who remembers Imelda "Sweets" Melancon? I was told she organized the first flying turnaround from Alaska.
