I got spat on at Mayweather Boxing Club and it was awesome

Yep, you read that correctly. When I decided to go behind the scenes in the Fight Capital of the World, I had no idea it meant I’d actually be in the trenches. From the smell of sweat and Icy Hot to the adrenaline pumping rap music and the sounds of bone-crushing blows, Vegas Fight Tour […]

10 must dos while you’re in Sin City

We get it, it’s Vegas. The land of so much to do and so little time to do it in. Everywhere you turn, there’s going to be something bright and shiny that grabs your attention. We know how many distractions there are, so we’ve gone ahead and waded through the tourist traps so you don’t […]

Where to catch spring blooms in Vegas

Where to catch spring blooms in Vegas

Vegas is a lot like an oversized sandbox. We’re a man-made, sandy playground for folks who just can’t seem to behave themselves. It’s not easy growing delicate little blossoms in this kind of environment so naturally, we do what we do best — tell Mother Nature to shove it and do whatever the hell we […]

East meets West at the Bellagio’s new Japanese spring exhibit

East meets West at the Bellagio’s new Japanese spring exhibit

Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto. Yep, that’s pretty much the extent of our Japanese too. But that didn’t stop the Bellagio Conservatory from sending their design team more than 5,000 miles away to study the gardens of Tokyo and Kyoto.

Death Valley National Park: Alive and kicking

Death Valley National Park: Alive and kicking

Death Valley National Park, the place where all things come to die. Just kidding, but I know what you’re thinking: there’s nothing out there. And technically, that’s a valid concern. There really isn’t anything out there, unless you’re with someone who knows exactly what to look for. Cue Scott Rivers from Big Horn Hummer Tours and the Lone […]

Get your superhero on at SlotZilla

Get your superhero on at SlotZilla

I never wanted to be Superman…errr Superwoman. Truthfully, I’m much more of an Iron Man kinda girl, myself. Something about his witty humor and smart mouth just speaks to me. Not to mention his impeccable taste in redheads. So when the SlotZilla team at the Fremont Street Experience invited me down for a Superman experience, I […]

Elvis Presley headlining in Vegas almost 40 years after his death

Elvis Presley headlining in Vegas almost 40 years after his death

Remember when a public hip thrust was cause for covering your mouth and hiding freshly flushed cheeks? Yeah, neither do we. But before the days when near-fornication in music videos became the norm, there was the original panty dropper. The master of subtle seduction, ladies and gentleman: Elvis Aaron Presley. It’s been almost 40 years […]

Cherub headlines Las Vegas Titanic exhibit display through March 31

Editor’s Note: Cherub artifact display has been extended through March 31. Remember the heart-fluttering scene in “Titanic” where Leo stands at the bottom of the stairs, gazing up in adoration at sultry Kate?  A bronze cherub has been recovered from the murk and is all that’s left of a swanky light fixture once perched atop […]

Bellagio rolls out the holiday decorations, tree and chocolate

The Bellagio welcomes the holiday season with a 42-foot-tall Christmas tree, frolicking polar bears, mischevious penguins and a lot of chocolate. Towering over tourists in the Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, the resort’s Christmas tree is bedecked with 2,500 ornaments and 7,000 LED lights.
