Gardnerville- The bench by the entrance to Sharkey's Nugget Casino. Milos "Sharkey" Begovich bought this casino in 1970 and turned it into a virtual museum of western Americana, rodeo, boxing, and circus memorabilia, political buttons, and metal advertising signs. The restaurant was open for 24 hours a day and featured enormous portions of prime rib. Alas, due to illness, Sharkey sold the casino in 2001, and the collections went to auction.
