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:

  • PHOTOS! (Utah girl’s snow trip)
  • Weather (Ahhh, that’s nice) / LiLV Pool (clear and slowly improving)
  • LiLV Stuff
    • Listener Line: 206.312.0105
    • Sign up of Email Alerts (form found on right side of our website)
  • LiLV

  • Bowling at Red Rock (Bowling #b1)

  • 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.

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 just left a message on my office voice mail. . .Danny Gans, who was headlining at Encore (and was a long-time headliner at the Mirage) has died.

This is sad news.  He was a classic Las Vegas act. . .of which there really aren’t many left. 

According to TMZ, Mr. Gans died at 3AM in his home in Las Vegas.  The news agency reports that his wife discovered his body and called for help.

Danny Gas was 57 52-years-old.

64: Dining at Wynn Encore, New Year’s Eve with 20-Somethings and Live Video

January 11, 2009

Because we enjoy having guests at the Whitney Villa, one of the great things about Living in Las Vegas is hosting/entertaining visitors when they come to town.  For today’s Living in Las Vegas Podcast, we first take our kids (who are visiting from California) to Wynn Encore for $ome fancy dining. Then, we review our New Year’s Eve party which brought in nine additional 20-somethings to the house and taught me a bit about bouncing back after puking, that some kids can drink faster than I ever could, and that if you play your cards right, you can get a secret XBOX 360 code for unlimited songs in Rock Star.  Show notes: (Now where did I put my NutriTorture snack bar. . .oh, and there is some swearing in this episode)
