'No Ice, No Las Vegas'
'No Ice, No Las Vegas'

Listen
AIR DATE: April 1, 2014

You know what's cold? How people treat ice. Leaving it to melt in their drinks at the bars, in those little plastic cups. Maybe somebody puts their cigarette out in the ice. Poor ice. And the thing is, we should treat ice with a little more respect. Because as Colorado State University Pueblo History Professor Jonathan Rees tells us, if it weren't for ice, and the giant ice industry of the 1800's, there probably wouldn't be the Las Vegas we know today.
