#182: ‘Favorite 5′ People Watching

January 23, 2013

Scott and Melissa share a potpourri of information on this episode of Living In Las Vegas.

Scott shares why he would never be on a reality show, questions the logic of construction companies that don’t get the job done, and provokes thought on the need for multiple observation wheels and stadiums in Vegas. Then everyone at VVN gets a new bras! Well, more like Scott pitches Melissa on new lingerie (the live chat voted yes), and finally, they reveal a new segment called Favorite 5. Show Notes:

#174: Savory, Swingin’, and Screams

November 7, 2012

Scott and Melissa share an interesting date night with us on this episode of Living in Las Vegas.

We start with some savory steak and salmon, then get swingin’ (get your mind out of the gutter) at a hip joint where the music is as beautiful as the scenery. Wrapping up the evening (which Melissa says went a little late), we find blood splatter and screams galore, even though Halloween is over. (Oh and take the over, that’s where the sharp money is.)

It’s the triumphant return of Melissa! Sound the horns! In celebration, we head down to Fremont Street (Melissa’s favorite. . .wait. . .who am I kidding. . .she hates it down there) for some good ribs, terrible street performers, flying drunks, crappy bands, great comedy and a lesson on concealing a weapon in Nevada.

78: YeeeeHaaaaw! I’m a Little Bit Country at Helldorado Days in Downtown Las Vegas

May 16, 2010

I’m pretty sure if it weren’t for that chewing tobacco thing, I’d have been a cowboy. Oh, and the cows. And that smell. And all that dirt and stuff. And sleeping in anything other than a kind-size bed.

But I digress.

Today’s Living in Las Vegas Podcast brings out our cowboy and cowgirl side as we ramble on down yonder to the Hellodaro Days celebration in downtown Las Vegas. Show notes:

71: Late Night at ‘After the Show’ — A Treat for Las Vegas Locals

September 22, 2009

[Get this, we recorded this show at 2AM! Why? Read the show notes below. . .]

This is the perfect example of what makes being a Las Vegas local so cool!  Every Monday night, starting at 11:00PM and going until 1:00AM Tuesday morning, a half dozen or more Las Vegas performers get together to perform for each other “After the Show”, that is, after their regular gigs.  Even better, Las Vegas locals are invited to join the fun for free.

I’d heard about After the Show for some time and wanted to see what it was all about for ourselves.  So, this special late-night edition of the Living in Las Vegas Podcast features our review of one of the coolest ideas in town.  Show notes:

November 4, 2008

Melissa and I woke up this morning ready to participate in the 2008 Presidential Election!  With reports of 2-3 hour lines, we were ready for a long wait.  Over the past couple of days, we’ve seen long lines for early voters and expected the same.

Luckily, that wasn’t the case.

We arrived at about 6:50AM.  At 7:00AM they started letting folks in.  And by 7:25AM, we each had our “I VOTED” stickers.

The whole process was well organized.  First, we got into one of several lines, depending on our voting precinct.  We signed in and received a paper receipt/tracking card that we then presented to a gal (at the end of another line) who scanned it to program a magnetic card (like a credit card or a hotel room card key).  Then, we waited a few minutes to get to one of the 20 or so voting machines that were all lined up single file at the back of the room.  There was a couple helper-bees floating around the voting machines providing instructions and answering questions.  The machine worked well–simply insert the magnetic card and use the touch screen-based machine, using your fingers.   Our ballot had about 20 screens worth of votes.  The whole process, start to finish, was 35 minutes.
