206 Wayne Newton, Lake Mead and the new mating call for millennials?

Looks like Wayne Newton is coming back for a show on the Strip, dumb-dumb gangsta-wannabe gets killed flashing cash he made talking about his sexcapade on the Linq Observation Wheel, we talk about Lake Mead National Recreational Area and Mark tries to understand what appears to be the new mating call for the millennials.

All of that and so much more when Mark and Debbie Anthony sit down to do The Vegas Tourist Podcast #206 

.
First up is the story that just gets more weird and refuses to die.  The sexcapade on the Linq Observation Wheel.  The man of the couple, Phil Panzica, gets killed flashing the money he was paid from the TMZ show for telling his version of the events. (Review-Journal)

Wayne Newton is returning to the Strip with his own show.  Thankfully we won’t have to hear him try to sing.  But the man will come fully loaded with a lot of stories and observations from his long career and his amazing Las Vegas life.  If there is anyone who would have some great Las Vegas stories worthy of the price of admission, it would have to be our very own Wayne Newton!!  Mark talks about his trip to Vegas and seeing the Wayne Newton Show when it was at the Stardust Casino.

T-Mobile Arena opens next week.  The new 20,000 seat arena will be bringing Las Vegas into the 21st century of entertainment facilities and a long list of great shows and headliners are already booked.  The paid parking that will come to MGM when the new arena opens will be a sore point for a lot of people and the experts have spoken: Paid Parking is a deal killer for vegas tourists!

The Rock n Roll Marathon brought in $226 Million in non-gaming economic impact and the 2016 version kicks off November 10-13.  (Rock N Roll Marathon Las Vegas details)

The Vegas Black Knights will be the name for the Las Vegas NHL team when (you know it will happen) Las Vegas gets its NHL team.  Meanwhile, the hockey league is losing millions by not making it official.   What Vegas tourist doesn’t want a Las Vegas NHL Hockey sweatshirt??

Lake Mead National Recreation Area

Why was Lake Mead made into a Recreational Area and what’s under the water?  That and other questions about Lake Mead National Recreational Area is answered in my interview with Public Affairs Officer for Lake Mead National Recreation Area and Tule Springs Fossil Beds National Monument, Ranger Christie Vanover
