I think it's safe to say that the LiLV Podcast appeals to a wide range of people--demographically, geographically, and now, chronologically. Our latest \"Friend\" of the LiLV Podcast looks pretty young. . .but Anne from Utah tells us that this photo is not quite as recent as the others on the page. Regardless, welcome aboard Anne (who has been a long-time listener)!
The first ever Living in Las Vegas Listener Meet Up was a GREAT SUCCESS!! As I walked out to Trader Vic's outside patio, I was immediately greeted by Tim and Nanette (from the For Whatever Reason Podcast). A few minutes later, David and Alicia (local LVers) joined us and there seemed to be a steady flow of folks joining us for drinks, laughs and storytelling.
We'll talk more about the meetup on the next podcast (lots of audio clips and video, though the video might not make it on the site) but to put a fine point on how much fun we had. . .all the Las Vegas locals hung around until late in the evening (midnight, I think). . .at which point we decided to EXTEND the party to today! Rich, Cheryl, David, Alicia, Don and Jan will be joining Melissa and me at the Whitney Villa for more fun!
It is well established that I believe the nectar of the Gods is Tanqueray and Tonic. . .a refreshing drink that proves there is hope for all of mankind. However, I will be zigging when I normally zag when it comes to libation ingestion when joining the folks at the LiLV Listener Meet Up taking place on August 15, 5PM, at Trader Vic's. I would invite those that join us to try something not found at your typical lounge.
My recommendation? Trader Vic's Kava Bowl. You got to love a drink that serves four in a communal bowl and features a variety of rums, liquors and fruit juice.
See you in about a week!
Okay, here's the scoop. Many of the folks who emailed us at firstname.lastname@example.org suggested our gathering should take place at the Whitney Villa. I think this is a great idea(!). . .and we were moving toward making that happen when we got word that some of our guest's ankle monitors would not let them travel to our neck of the woods.
Maybe next time, Troy. (I keed, I keed.)
Anywho, the day with the most votes turned out to be Friday, August 15th. This works well--it gives us a chance to meet but doesn't cut into what may be the last night in Las Vegas (Saturday) for many of the folks attending the New Media Expo. here's the scoop:
Location: Trader Vic's (in The Miracle Mile Shopping Center, attached to Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino)
Date: Friday, August 15
Attire: Probably a good idea
Melissa and I are looking forward to meeting y'all! And remember, there's a gift waiting for the first 10 people who introduce him/herself to me OR my Naughty Jelly Sweet!!
