Last night I went down to what I like to call "the freak zone", other people call it by its actual title: The Fremont Street Experience. The reason I went there was to see the new, improved and ultra amazing light show. In the last couple of months, they have been hard at work trying to get the new lighting system up and running before New Year's Eve. And they are pretty much … [Read more...] about Checking out the New FSE Light Show
Recently, on one of the Las Vegas online discussion groups, the question came up about staying at the Trump Hotel. Some of the commenters were stating that it was a nice place to stay but was too far off the Strip. That staying there, you would need to take a taxicab or Uber to get to the Strip! Oh Really? So I started to think about that. A long walk to the Strip? Has … [Read more...] about How Far To to the Strip?

You haven't seen Matt Goss Yet? Really? Why Not? Good question. Except I'm not asking. The question came from my darling wife Debbie; "Why haven't we seen him before tonight?" was her actual question and to be honest, after the first song, I didn't have a really good answer for her. I think it goes back to why I founded this website all those years ago. For almost a … [Read more...] about Review: Matt Goss at 1 Oak Nightclub
One of the truisms of Las Vegas is that we know how to separate you from your money better than any other city in the world. We've been doing it for over 100 years. Also, if you ever want to learn the art of marketing, Mad Men style, come to Las Vegas. Nothing is done here without first thinking about the marketing. From the placements of the slot machines to the cut of the … [Read more...] about The Gazillionaire is Holding Open Casting Call for Absinthe, Feb 6
