The D Bar | Fremont Street Experience | October 2, 2015 | 11 a.m.

Living in Vegas, I’m used to seeing all sorts of characters walking aimlessly down Fremont Street with yard-longs in hand. It’s not often, however, that one of the best movies that documented the Las Vegas landscape, intentionally or not, comes into play. Perhaps it was the fact that the cup was a headless torso filled with strawberry daiquiri in a silver bathing suit, but my mind jumped to a scene from Mars Attacks! where Sarah Jessica Parker and her Chihuahua are abducted by martians. After a surgery, the Chihuahua’s head is stitched to Parker’s body, dressed in a silver bathing suit and awkwardly running around the spaceship. I already have a Chihuahua. All I need is a bathing suit and a few daiquiris to get down the walk, and I’ll be ready to crush Halloween.
