Have a Drink, Help Stop Nuclear Waste Dump

April 13, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

Bellying up to the bar at Jerry's Nugget Casino in North Las Vegas will get you more than just a hangover. It'll help a campaign to keep nuclear waste out of Nevada.

The casino is offering a specialty drink called "The Yucca Mountain Meltdown." The $2.50 drink, served in a souvenir glass, is a blend of curacao, rum and pineapple.

Jerry's Nugget will donate $1 from each sale to the Nevada Anti-Nuclear Waste Task Force, a nonprofit public advocacy organization.

Gov. Kenny Guinn has vetoed President Bush's approval of the Yucca Mountain project, a site 90 miles northwest of Las Vegas where 77,000 tons of the nation's high-level nuclear waste would be entombed.
