You read it first on today's WSJ front page!
Granted, we do understand there are a few issues with WSJ's editorial policies ;-)

Not quite like the dazzling metropolis pictured in DOON, but apparently there is a new restaurant in town.

One important factoid missing from this article: The absolutely slowest service in the entire state may be found in the dinning room of the Hazmat Hotel.

Except, the only possible reason you'd be nearby, is...
YOU ARE HOPELESSLY LOST!

Dave:
What don't you like about WSJ editorial policies ?
Those of you who didn't make it, Tonopah was the site of a spectacular 15 meter nationals and a great regionals around 2000. I did a task at 119 mph... And Gary Ittner beat me, by doing 126.
It's also very beautiful. I hope the infrastructure improves to the point we can fly there again.

Great except for the task under a huge storm that was not cancelled,
where a number of us flew home and put the gliders away to be safe...
Spectacular for sure!
