I only ask because on my last visit there, we were the first guests into the Excaliber, which should let you know how long it has been.
The 2 newest properties in Vegas are:
Aria Resort - opened Dec 2009
The Cosmopolitan - opened Dec 2010
The oldest casino still in operation is Golden Gate Casino on Freement St. Opened in 1906.

Where's a good Chinese restaurant in Las Vegas?
I like Cathay House
near China Town, or Orchids Garden
on West Sahara. Both serve great Dim Sum and the menu items are always good.
