The City of Las Vegas on Friday deleted a "National Martini Day" message sent from the mayor on Juneteenth.


Longtime Nevada political reporter Jon Ralson, the editor of The Nevada Independent, noted the tweet had been deleted.

However, it appears the tweet may have just been a reposting of video from last Juneteenth.

In 2019, Mayor Carolyn Goodman honored her husband, former Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman, on Juneteenth.

She declared the day "Oscar Goodman Martini Day in the city of Las Vegas and ask all residents to join me in recognizing Oscar and this festive occasion."

In the video, the "martini" recipe was just gin shaken with ice with a jalapeño added.
