I think it’s safe to say that the LiLV Podcast appeals to a wide range of people–demographically, geographically, and now, chronologically. Our latest “Friend” of the LiLV Podcast looks pretty young. . .but Anne from Utah tells us that this photo is not quite as recent as the others on the page. Regardless, welcome aboard Anne (who has been a long-time listener)!

If Melissa and I ever decide on some more international travel, I think we’ve added another place where we could stay. Joel from Israel has been added as a new “Friend” of the Living in Las Vegas Podcast. Welcome, Joel!

Website: PORT Salon
Since moving to Las Vegas in 2005, I have been on a three-year journey trying to find a hair salon that I could go to and expect consistent results. Until just recently, the journey was a difficult one! Thankfully, Scott found PORT Salon, and I have found a home for all my hair, skin and nail needs!

The first ever Living in Las Vegas Listener Meet Up was a GREAT SUCCESS!! As I walked out to Trader Vic’s outside patio, I was immediately greeted by Tim and Nanette (from the For Whatever Reason Podcast). A few minutes later, David and Alicia (local LVers) joined us and there seemed to be a steady flow of folks joining us for drinks, laughs and storytelling.
We’ll talk more about the meetup on the next podcast (lots of audio clips and video, though the video might not make it on the site) but to put a fine point on how much fun we had. . .all the Las Vegas locals hung around until late in the evening (midnight, I think). . .at which point we decided to EXTEND the party to today! Rich, Cheryl, David, Alicia, Don and Jan will be joining Melissa and me at the Whitney Villa for more fun!

Since moving to Las Vegas in August of 2005, we’ve seen unemployment as low as 3.8%. But more recently, we’re looking at an unemployment rate of 6.7% here in the Las Vegas Valley. From where we sit, that’s too damn high (and above the national average). So, for today’s Living in Las Vegas Podcast, we offer some very specific tips on finding a job in Las Vegas (and beyond). Show notes:
- Weather/Pool Report: Hot and Dry, like my love and humor
- JetBlue? More like JetBlows.
- Discovering Las Vegas with my Magellan 1412
- Listener Meet Up on August 15 at 5PM at Trader Vic’s. More Info. Drink Recommendation.
- Check out the 2008 New Media Expo in Las Vegas (August 14-16)!
- Construction on 215
- Listener Audio: Show thoughts, baking cakes, and jewelry shows
- Listener Email: Moving to Vegas, taking back her title, killing deer, garage doors, show suggestions
- More LiLV Friends added!
- Tip’s on Finding a Job in Las Vegas
- Job Boards (National and Local)
- Interview (telephone, preparation for onsite, interview tips, follow up)

It is well established that I believe the nectar of the Gods is Tanqueray and Tonic. . .a refreshing drink that proves there is hope for all of mankind. However, I will be zigging when I normally zag when it comes to libation ingestion when joining the folks at the LiLV Listener Meet Up taking place on August 15, 5PM, at Trader Vic’s. I would invite those that join us to try something not found at your typical lounge.
My recommendation? Trader Vic’s Kava Bowl. You got to love a drink that serves four in a communal bowl and features a variety of rums, liquors and fruit juice.
See you in about a week!

Okay, here’s the scoop. Many of the folks who emailed us at firstname.lastname@example.org suggested our gathering should take place at the Whitney Villa. I think this is a great idea(!). . .and we were moving toward making that happen when we got word that some of our guest’s ankle monitors would not let them travel to our neck of the woods.
Maybe next time, Troy. (I keed, I keed.)
Anywho, the day with the most votes turned out to be Friday, August 15th. This works well–it gives us a chance to meet but doesn’t cut into what may be the last night in Las Vegas (Saturday) for many of the folks attending the New Media Expo. here’s the scoop:
Location: Trader Vic’s (in The Miracle Mile Shopping Center, attached to Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino)
Date: Friday, August 15
Attire: Probably a good idea
Melissa and I are looking forward to meeting y’all! And remember, there’s a gift waiting for the first 10 people who introduce him/herself to me OR my Naughty Jelly Sweet!!
