The Rev. Deacon Bonnie Polley gives an invocation during the grand reopening of The Atomic on East Fremont Street Wednesday, June 20, 2013. Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman listens at left. The bar was originally built in 1945 as Virginia's Cafe but was renamed Atomic Liquors in 1952 when patrons used to go to the roof to watch the nuclear blasts from the Atomic Test Site.
