More Building Up America coverage

Las Vegas, also known as simply Vegas, was a city on Earth in the state of Nevada on the North American continent.
Vic Fontaine's lounge bar was located in Las Vegas. (DS9: "It's Only a Paper Moon")
Vic once told a joke, stating that "In Vegas, there's only one way not to lose money. The moment you step off the plane, walk into the propellers." (DS9: "His Way")
Benjamin Sisko had no desire to visit Vic's program, because "in 1962, black people weren't welcome there," further stating, "sure they could be performers, or janitors, but customers? Never." Kasidy tried to reassure him that that may be true "in the real Vegas, but that's not how it is at Vic's." (DS9: "Badda-Bing, Badda-Bang")
According to Frankie Eyes, Bugsy Siegel was "the man that built Las Vegas," and that "he was a visionary." Eyes was disappointed that there was not "even one statue of the guy" in Vegas. (DS9: "Badda-Bing, Badda-Bang")
When Quark wanted to play the Ferengi game of tongo with Vic, Vic reminded him that they didn't play the game in Las Vegas in 1962, and therefore the program couldn't create it. (DS9: "What You Leave Behind")
Following the return to Deep Space 9, Ezri Dax suggested that she and Julian Bashir take a trip to Vegas, however Bashir suggested that perhaps they should try out his new Battle of Thermopylae program. (DS9: "What You Leave Behind")
The Hotel Royale was also located in Vegas. (TNG: "The Royale")
As part of a vision quest, Tom Paris told Chakotay that word had just come in from Vegas, Mars, and Orion III that the odds were 33:1 that Kid Chaos would outpoint him and 11:1 that he'd be k.o.ed by the fifth round. (VOY: "The Fight")
Fresh shrimp? Yes, please. And, they need to figure out a way to do this for soft shell crab.
But... What are they fed and how do they taste?
