Dodgers Specials at the Dugout Diner in Las Vegas

From time to time I run across something so unique and unknown to me that I had to do some research. The above circa 1960's menu from the now defunct Dugout diner at the Las Vegas Club Hotel & Casino on Fremont Street is one of those items. Check out the eBay auction link where I found this here.

So, what is it exactly about this menu that created so much interest on my part?

Well, this diner had several menu items that paid homage to our beloved Dodgers. Check out what I mean on the right. Click on the pic to embiggen.

As you can see, they have three "Specials" named after Dodger legends Don Drysdale, Maury Wills and Sandy Koufax. Check them out below.

This is why you know he's the greatest. Per Ken Gurnick at
"I didn't have much of anything tonight. It was pretty much smoke and mirrors," said Kershaw. "That's a good team. I was getting ahead of a few guys, but a lot of hits with two strikes. Didn't have those put-away pitches tonight. This was definitely not one of my most memorable performances, that's for sure."
Even with him being less than his best Kershaw was still able to hold a playoff contending club to only two runs in six innings. Heck, this was only the second start of his career where he was only able to strike out one batter.

Unfortunately, we ended up on the wrong side of the win column last night, 3-2. Photo above via Christine Kroeckel/ at Dodger Insider. Below are more links to check out:
