Health inspectors have closed two eating areas in the iconic Golden Nugget casino in downtown Las Vegas for numerous code violations including a pest infestation.

The Southern Nevada Health District inspectors ordered the closure of the 24-hour Carson Street Cafe and the employee dining area on Tuesday.

Golden Nugget spokeswoman Tiffany Hauck said in a statement that the casino was upset that someone had dropped the ball. She assured guests it would not happen again.

The health district cited the Carson Street Cafe with 27 demerits.

Health District spokeswoman Jennifer Sizemore said she could not speak to the nature of the violations until she saw the full report.

  1. Keep this up and the AAA 4 Diamond rating is in serious trouble!!

  2. Dean Heller recently gave a speech before Congress, claiming Government regulations were driving up the cost of business, the price of goods to the consumer and forcing businesses to cut corners or go bankrupt.

    Unfortunately for the consumer, he forgot to include that filling up the emergency rooms in hospitals was driving up the cost of stomach pumps, megadoses of antibiotics and Get Well Cards for the afflicted, but Hallmark never complained.
