November 28, 2010

Anybody can put lights on a Christmas tree. That’s easy. Try putting 500,000 lights on Nevada’s (and one of the world’s) largest collection of cactus (cacti, cactuses). And while you’re doing that, help Scott figure out if Melissa has made a deal with the devil. In today’s Living in Las Vegas Podcast, we tackle lighted cactus, devil deals, Irish pubs are more.

85: UNLV Basketball – Go, Fight, Win!

November 21, 2010

You’ll hear time and again that Las Vegas lacks culture. Really? Besides the strong art and music scenes here in the valley, many forget that Las Vegas is home to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. There are tons of UNLV supporters of all ages, many of whom are feverish fans of the Runnin’ Rebels basketball team.

For today’s Living in Las Vegas Podcast, we join in the excitement and check out a great UNLV Basketball game at the Thomas and Mack Center. Show notes:
