With 5,000 people moving here each month, somebody had to spill the beans!

Just as everybody in Los Angeles wants to be an actor, it appears that everybody building our secret project wants to be a Vegas entertainer. We’ve already seen Wade’s dancing skills, so now it’s up to Rip and me to audition as well.

For my part, I butcher about three seconds of a BeeGee’s classic. Rip’s death-defying performance is much more impressive. In both cases, I’d suggest you not try this at home.

Here is the latest video from our studio building project, which is happening just off the Las Vegas Strip.

In today’s video, we learn how to set off a fire alarm without starting a fire and see first hand that I have lost all track of time.

On November 23, 1998 I jumped into the entrepreneurial waters.  Since then, I’ve started three successful businesses (website design, branded music CDs and Internet broadcasting).  For each of those businesses, I’ve been fortunately enough to have, on average, about a 10 foot commute to work. 

That is, until about ten days ago.

For some time now, I’ve been working on a concept for a new type of offering from PodWorx.  It’s an idea that I’m very excited about and one where the technology has caught up with the vision.  It’s never been attempted here in Las Vegas and based on the feedback I’ve received from a group of very smart folks who’ve been briefed (after signing a Non-Disclosure Agreement), there’s a lot to be excited about.

To create the environment necessary for this new concept, I have to expand beyond my existing work environment.  As a result, I have found myself in the land of commercial real estate.  After a relatively-short search, I was connected with a great guy/landlord and a great space from which to launch this project. 

After securing a small amount of funds from outside sources, on August 2nd, 2010, I accepted the keys to my first commercial property!  A wave of excitement, fear, anticipation and the unknown washed over me.  I’m not a Builder-Bob kind of guy, so I was nervous.  Luckily, I have two GREAT friends (Rip and Wade) who are helping me build what I believe will be one of the coolest video studios in town.   

The video above is the first of several I’ll be recording during the building process.  We’re still in stealth mode but I wanted to share the process as best I can. Ten days into the project, I’ve learned a lot, spend a great deal of time at Home Depot and Ahern Rental, and feel as if my credit card is beginning to melt.

Stay tuned. . .

Just saw this in our local neighborhood paper. 

The Tea Lounge on the 23rd floor of he Mandarin Oriental at CityCenter is offering locals 20% off their bill for tea and/or tea cocktails now through Labor Day.

What is a tea cocktail?

Good question.  Here’s a couple examples:

Royal Tea – orange vodka, simple syrup, chilled Osmanthus Oolong tea, splash of lemon juice, on the rocks.

Tea-tini – bourbon, chilled jasmine pearl tea, and apple juice, sweetened with agave nectar.

I wonder if I can hang a Lipton bag on the side of my Tanqueray and Tonic and call it a tea cocktail?

Bridget MagnusCome to find out, Twitter is good for more than getting updates about Twilight, sharing your anger about poor WorldCup officiating, and telling everybody that you just woke up.  It’s really good at finding experts in the most curious of ways.

I put out a tweet about Las Vegas street performers that solicited a funny response by Bridget Magnus, a Las Vegas local.  As I often do when I get a reply on Twitter, I checked out her blog.  Come to find out, she’s a Realtor.  And I was pleasantly surprised to learn that she publishes a weekly blog post called “Friday Figures”, which provides a synopsis on what’s what in the Las Vegas real estate market, based upon figures from GLVAR MLS system.

I asked if she’d be interested in sharing her insights with our Living in Las Vegas Podcast readers and she agreed to do so.

Welcome, Bridget.  Thanks for joining the team!

I’ve always found it odd that most businesses struggling to make ends meet catering to tourists fail to realize that there are two million people who live in the Las Vegas Valley who are hungry, thirsty and in search of entertainment as well.  While many locals avoid The Strip because of high prices ($18 for a drink?!  Are you kidding me?!?), more would certainly make the Strip Trip if offered a locals-only discount. 

So, here’s an official “attaboy” to the folks at Wolfgang Puck.

Several Wolfgang Puck restaurants are offering locals 20% off through September 30.  The offer is good for lunch and dinner food only (not drinks) seven days a week at the following restaurants:

  • Spago (The Forum Shops)
  • CUT (Palazzo)
  • Trattoria del Lupo (Mandalay Bay)
  • Postrio Bar & Grill (Grand Canal Shops/Venetian)
  • Wofgang Puck Pizzeria (Crystals, CityCenter)

Locals must show ID to their server to take advantage of the offer.  More info can be found at www.wolfgangpuck.com.
