Here's a shot of the marquee in the parking lot of Mr. Lucky's. Check out the mischievous look on this roadside icon. Mr. Lucky's originally opened its doors in 1966 as Arizona's first gambling casino. It then became a country music night club. Unfortunately, word is that Mr. Lucky's has closed its doors for the last time. 2004 saw the end of Mr. Luckys.


UPDATE 11/17 : The site of the former Mr. Lucky's still hosts events. 11-17
