#187: Pubs, Pot, and Pools

March 20, 2013

Scott and Melissa go bar hopping with the Ivy’s. Legalizing pot in Nevada; it’s up for a vote. Scott gets crunk. Favorite 5: Summer/Winter Things to Do. Sharp money stays on the over ticket. Show notes:

#181: Cage Match – Celine Dion vs Jersey Boys

January 16, 2013

Baby it’s f#%king freezing outside!

Scott and Melissa prove it’s a frozen tundra outside with icebergs in their pool, share where not to get a flu shot (this is going to sting a bit), and Scott explains how sports betting makes him sweat. Then, with the help of the live chat (which included a guy watching the show from London. . . while in his bathtub), they compare a performance by Celine Dion to the cast of characters in The Jersey Boys, where they ask the question, Is it enough to be front and center, or does it require more for a performer to make a connection? (Take the over folks!) Show notes:

#167: Farms, Arms, and a New Set with Charm

September 11, 2012

With torrential rains pounding Las Vegas during this episode of Living in Las Vegas, Melissa tries farming (and brings home an intimidating veggie) and goes under the knife with likely the best “Wingman” in Las Vegas. (Be sure to watch the very end of the show. . .funny “set malfunction” to be had by all.) 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:

** 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.

76: Living in Las Vegas, Acting Like a Tourist

February 27, 2010

While there are certainly a few things making life in Las Vegas a bit tough for many of our fellow Las Vegans (unemployment and housing prices, for example), we love that we live in a city that was once our go-to place for weekend getaways. We’re just 30 minutes away from some of the best food, lodging and entertainment the country has to offer.

Which is pretty cool.

In this edition of the Living in Las Vegas Podcast, we review some of the touristy things we’ve been up to during the last couple of months. Show notes:

73: Hip Checks and Short Skirts – Roller Derby in Las Vegas

November 22, 2009

Call me crazy, but there’s something to be said for watching a bunch of woman whoosh around a roller rink, kicking the crap out of each other. The teamwork, the strategy, the action. . .the Pabst Blue Ribbon beer.

(At least, that’s what Tomahawk says.)

In this edition of the Living in Las Vegas Podcast, we discover the joy that is Woman’s Flat Track Roller Derby, featuring the Sin City Roller Girls.   Show notes:

72: Hanging Out on the Las Vegas Strip (and Why Las Vegas Locals Hate Doing So)

November 1, 2009

It’s a surprise to many Las Vegas tourists that a large number of Las Vegas locals hate hanging out on The Strip.  We, of course, do not belong to that category of Las Vegans.  We like visiting the coolest street in the USA. . .but understand why many locals don’t share our enthusiasm.

In this edition of the Living in Las Vegas Podcast, we talk about our last couple of visits to The Strip and introduce a new “cast member” to the Living in Las Vegas Podcast!  Show notes:

66: Learning About the Origins of Las Vegas at Springs Preserve

March 22, 2009

Recorded in front of a LIVE Streaming Video Audience (click to see video)!

For many of us, the search for our origins has translated into thousands of dollars of therapy.  And while I’m certainly not one to criticize the need to lay (or is it lie?) on a couch and travel back in time to explore your childhood, allow me to suggest another avenue of discovery.  In this edition of the Living in Las Vegas Podcast, we feature our trip to Springs Preserve, an outstanding place to learn all about your history. . .if by “you” you mean Las Vegas.  Show notes:

  • Weather (for the love of God, enough with the wind and rain. . .it was beautiful a couple days ago!) / LiLV Pool (full of seat cushions)
