hello, this is madam Vanessa, las vegas talk of the town, 1970’s
from our panorama paper in 1970
I have a 10dollar coupon to go California ave. auto body. one block of southwest main and Charleston, maybe this is our arts district.now.
I told in my previous journal on this blog I met marlin bray a 21 dealer at our Tropicana hotel in 1973 from bellman larry on swing shift for marlin to give 40.00 and I met marlin at his apt on giles,
the other bellman who worked at the bell desk at the Tropicana, were Donny and Denny, who were nice to me and got me hotel dates for 50,00 more than a few times and I always paid ther 40 fee immediately after having sex with a man in his hotel room. and iwanted to say marlin decided to tell the bell desk not to call me, which he could do ,due to the fact his father , larry bray was someone at the Tropicana in the 21 pit and mr bray and marlin both walked into the mgm for jobs is what I was told, and too bad I did not think of this when our bally’s was here in 1985. oh. well, anyways a few dates after dating and liking marlin bray , he decided, he should pimp for sexdates and I would give him 50 per cent of this date and as naïve and young I was I believed him and I lost our bell desk at the Tropicana for sex and money which I just got in February of 1973 . like I write marlin did not get me any dates and one time I told him I made 100 bucks from the bellman at the hacienda hotel. which was my cut from men that I had sex with in a hotel room and I told marlin this and he took my 50,00, which was really not fair , that I needed for myself. I really believe my companion date marlin , would help me get more money as a prostitute , with his connections at the Tropicana hotel, which sadly never happened. I dated and liked marlin for one month and then I guess we both stopped calling each other . then I called him one more time and he wondered about me and offered for me to live with him.
but then at 19 and he has two kids from a marriage and he is 34 years young , so I thought that was a lot for me and I did not talk to him after this phonecall. he could have called me back since I called him in 1973 and in 1974 my friend suzy and I drove las vegas from calif and saw the barry manilow dinner show at mgm. this was a great show.
we also drove over to marlin’s apt on giles at nite and knocked at his door and no one answered. when I look back at this I still had my little black book of friends and clients from las vegas, which I rememebered I kept for some reason for 3 years later on and threw out then.
so I thought about this when I was here in las vegas for a day and half , I never called any one like my best friend bruce, that I wished I did , this was my only attempt to reach someone from las vegas in 1974 by knocking at marlin apt door.
then when I have made the decision to come back to las vegas in early 1985 and I have directions to get to our city of las vegas, I am thinking about trying to find marlin bray, which I do with a newspaper ad and a 1983 phonebook.
I had no luck with these ways and then in 1986, a floorman, at our union plaza , told me larry bray is a boss at mgm and I did nothing because, I felt as long as I was married and loved my husband paul very much, I would leave my past alone and then when I got divorced 3 years later, I feel it is too late to try to find anyone from the 1970’s, I would honestly meet one man from our 1970’s rainbow club, one of the owners, art lebert , a host at the dunes and I reintroduced my self to art at the dunes and asked him about his partner dick Thurmond, the real owner of the rainbow club, that I really hung around as a 19year old hooker and had a lot of fun in 1972-1973, with him. mr lebert told me dick Thurmond’s gary, was a cashier at the flamingo in 1989 and I met gary in 1973 with his father, but I never went to the flamingo to find gary, dick’s son in 1989. I guess this did not matter, but I always having fun with dick Thurmond and him being one of the nicest man I partied with as a prostitute in 1972-1973.
I want to share in my writing my dates with marlin and maybe a bellman story from the Tropicana hotel in 1973.
