EL CORTEZNaked City Pizza closed its location inside the casino over the weekend. Owner Christopher Palmeri wrote on Facebook: “My brother and I would like to inform everyone that we have closed our El Cortez location this weekend. This is a decision we have thought about for over a long time and we did not take it lightly. The El Cortez, the owners of the hotel and it’s staff were amazing to work with and we appreciate everything they did with us and the opportunity to be in this classic Vegas casino. We mainly made this decision because it was taking a large toll on my brother and I. We were very ambitious over the past five years and we’ve enjoyed every location we have had but in the end we needed to make a decision that was best for us and our families. We want to thank every customer that ever ordered a slice from us, we truly appreciate your patronage. Our other 4 locations are remaining open and we are excited to see what the future holds for those locations.We again thank our loyal regulars and all of our guests.” [Facebook]
