#145: Best of Las Vegas 2012 – Are You F’ing Kidding Me?!

April 3, 2012

With gas over $4 a gallon and airfares going up, it’s hard for many folks to vacation in Las Vegas.
That’s the bad news. The good news? According to the collective intelligence that is the Las Vegas Review-Journal readers, you don’t need to come to Las Vegas for the best. Congratulations Paducah, Kentucky, that Outback over on Hinkleville Road is the best steak Las Vegas has offer. Yeeeeee-Haaaaw.

#95: Returning to the Scene of the Crime

February 9, 2011

Interesting topics this week. . .one casino recovers most of the 1.5 million dollars stolen from it. Another is saved from public foreclosure in the nick of time. And more than half of all homes sold in Las Vegas were paid for in cash. In this episode of the Living in Las Vegas Podcast, Las Vegas locals Scott and Melissa wonder about the mental stability of a casino thief who returns to the scene of the crime (A LOT) and talk about money and casinos.

#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.

Longtime Living in Las Vegas Podcast friend Cheryl just told me about an amazing deal that Station Casinos is running right now.  Called “My Vacation”, they have two great deals:

$125 for two nights, including a $100 credit for dining, bar, and lounges at all casinos except Green Valley Ranch and Red Rock.  For those two properties, they are charging $250 for two nights, including $200 credit. And they added spa use for the $200 credit.

Here’s the link to their website.

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:

Melissa and I were hanging out at Aliante Station last night and while having a drink at the MRKT sea & land bar, we learned that they offer 1/2 off their menu (not including lobster and surf and turf) from Sunday through Thursday for those folks with a “Boarding Pass”.

Seems like a pretty good deal to me!

We’re definitely going to take advantage of that some time this week.  And although our last experience at MRKT was mixed (we gave it a half and half on Hot and Horrible), the food, when it arrived, was pretty good.
