It may be one of Las Vegas' most historic places.  It's a blast from a colorful past that will soon go dark.  The Sahara Hotel is shutting down after 60 years.  The spot famously known as a hangout for the Rat Pack also saw such celebrities as the Beatles, Elvis and Marilyn Monroe.  Louis Prima became a Vegas headliner at the Sahara.  We look back at the history and you can share your memories at the Sahara.
