Jubilee Backstage Tour: a peek inside Las Vegas show business

Once upon a time I wanted to be a Vegas showgirl.

Neon Museum’s La Concha Visitor’s Center one for the history books

Something old gets a new title. The retro La Concha visitor’s center at the Neon Museum has just been added to the Nevada State Register of Historic Places.
