LETTER: Missing 99-cent shrimp cocktails

Heidi Knapp Rinella’s article on the Golden Gate’s legendary shrimp cocktails at bargain prices (July 17, “Shrimp’s Tale”) brought back pleasant memories.

In many ways, I miss the old Vegas traditions. If Las Vegas wants to stay competitive, hotel owners need to revive the old traditions like shrimp cocktail at fair prices. They should cut the parking fees and resort fees, also.
