#201: Open Container Laws & Going Off the Beaten Path

September 19, 2013

There’s a chance if you walked around Fremont East recently with an open container, you got your football-shaped beer confiscated and a $200 citation. Is that legal? We find out. We follow with a list of our favorite “Off the Beaten Path” places in Las Vegas. 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.)

#163: Live Music In Las Vegas

August 15, 2012

Oh friends, this is a good one! Scott and Melissa cover a ton of live music venues in Las Vegas this week. From the vaudeville style of Bonnie Springs and the smoothest jazz ever, to the “hottest band in the land” and a drummer who plays upside down, this show demonstrates the diversity that is live music in Las Vegas. We have rock, jazz, bras flying, and the best of the wild wild west. You gotta see this one! Show notes:

#112: I Hope We Pass the Audition

June 15, 2011

In our first episode to be syndicated on Las Vegas’ AM 1400, KSHP, this episode of the Living in Las Vegas Podcast features the great outdoors, man’s best friend, and proof that you can be a senior citizen and still rock. (And yes, I wore the same shirt four episodes ago. So what.) Show notes:

#94: The Professional Musician (2003 vs 2011)

February 2, 2011

One of the things that enamored Scott to Las Vegas when he and Melissa first moved here was that a musician could make a living, and do so without having to work a side job.

Now. . .fast forward eight years — it’s certainly much harder for musicians than it used to be, but there is a guy who has a formula that works, and we’ll talk about him on this episode of the Living in Las Vegas Podcast. Show notes.

77: LiLV Podcast — Bowling, Beautiful People, Brrrr, Bird Poop and Blues

April 11, 2010

While not for the faint of heart, sometimes, you just got to pick a letter of the alphabet and form an entire show around it. Lesser folks would shy away from such a bold move. . .but not your fearless hosts. In this edition of the Living in Las Vegas Podcast, we focus on the letter "B" — which is what "Melissa" means in Spanish (bee, that is)**. Show notes:

  • Listener Email: Elvis asks a question, Mark offers a drink
  • Hot and Horrible: BB King’s Blues Club (Blues, #b5)

** Okay, we really didn’t start off trying to create a show about things starting with “B”. I was just looking for a theme. Don’t judge me.

70: One is Good, One is Bad: Las Vegas Hiking, Las Vegas Real Estate Agents

August 29, 2009

[Let’s set the mood. . .it’s a Saturday night. . .the studio lights have been dimmed. . .the red wine is ready and willing. . .what better time to record a Living in Las Vegas Podcast?]

Professionalism?  Las Vegas Real Estate “Professionals” calling.  We’re a little lost, here.  Can you send somebody over?

Okay, this wasn’t meant to be the main topic. . .and it’s not. . .but, for the love of all things reasonable, get it together Las Vegas real estate folks!  You’re making those of us who live here look bad!

On a positive note, after ranting about the nasty issues of real estate, this edition of the Living in Las Vegas Podcast talks about three places to hike, two of which I deemed “hiked” even though my definition of hiked and Melissa’s were not completely in line.  Show notes:

We’re 30 hours away from the March 2009 Living in Las Vegas Podcast Listener Meetup.  That’s the good news.

What’s the bad news?

Well, I’d say it has to do with the attendees.  I don’t really know how many people will be joining us at the Red Rock Casino and Hotel tomorrow at 6PM, but from the few folks who’ve contacted me, it could be a rough crowd.

For example:

  • A Germany from Hong Kong: Huh?  Is that even possible?  Are there no direct flights from Berlin?
  • A Couple of Foreigners: Have you ever been to Michigan?  It’s too damn cold there.  How can somebody with any sense live there?  What could possibly be on their minds?
  • Two Podcast Hosts: Okay. . .these two folks are pretty nice.  Buy them a drink. They’re thirsty.
  • A Birthday-Boy Web Stud: Into HTML?  Dig CSS?  Then a good time will be had by all you.
  • A Real-Life Ph.D.  And believe me when I say Ph.D doesn’t stand for what you think it does.  Oh sure, it’s “official”.  But I’m pretty sure it should stands for Pretty hard.  Drinker.

Frightening, right?  Who knows what kind of craziness will ensue.  So, if you want my advice, I’d say. . .join us.  Not so much because it’ll be a good time.  I just need a witness in the event things get a little out of hand.

With a thankful tip of the hat to Cheryl [contributors page] for her recon work, along with a further hat tip to Rob and Lois [friends page] for moving things along, the next Living in Las Vegas Podcast Listener Meet Up is officially ON for Saturday, March 14th!

To change things up a bit, the March Meet Up will take place at the nicest “locals” casino in the Las Vegas Valley: the $950M Red Rock Hotel and Casino. (No, not Whitney Villa. . .we’ve not been properly sanctioned for gaming.)  Here’s the scoop:

Location: Red Rock Casino and Hotel
Gathering Spot: Swanky* Bar by the hotel lobby (found in the center of the circular area adjacent to the lobby itself [pdf])
Where Should I Park? East Valet or East Parking Garage
Date: Saturday, March 14
Time: 6PM
Attire: Only if you want to get in
Calendar: Click here to add to your calendar

Melissa and I are looking forward to seeing y’all again!  It’s been too long between good times with LiLV listeners!  For those thinking about coming out for the first time, our first gathering was awesome, our second was spoooooky, and our third will be uber-groovy as well.  Come on out and join the fun!  As an added bonus, I’ll be sure to share how I went from Scott Whitney, civilian to Lord Scott Whitney.  (It’s good to be the king. . .er. . .lord.)

See you on March 14th!  And feel free to invite a friend.

 

* “Swanky” is Cheryl’s description.
