Gondoliering 101 at The Venetian Las Vegas

Gondoliering 101 at The Venetian Las Vegas

Normally, when I hear glug glug glug, it’s because I’ve poured myself an obscenely large glass of wine. But in this case, it was the sound my body made as it sank into the 11-foot-deep lagoon at the Venetian. Nope, I wasn’t under the influence; I was attending Gondolier University. And while jumping into the water […]

Giant Italian women invade the Palazzo

Giant Italian women invade the Palazzo

Ciao Bella (insert exaggerated hand gesture here). Carnival is annually marked by an over-the-top celebration with elaborate costumes and masquerades, glittering decorations and a whole lot of inebriated revelry through the streets. Wait a minute – that sounds a lot like Vegas. And because we’re always looking for a good excuse to celebrate, the Palazzo […]

Don’t be a scaredy-cat, take a helicopter to the Grand Canyon

Sure, you could sit on a bus for the better part of a day, listening to a screaming child a few rows ahead of you, breathing in the sweet tang of sewage every time the lavatory door swings open. That’s how most people get to the Grand Canyon. And why wouldn’t they? It’s cheaper, a […]

And you can bet your intensely StairMastered rear end that we’re pushing the standards of moral corruption every chance we get. Public decency isn’t something we pay much attention to, so feel free […]

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. For the first time in their history, they’ve chosen to feature a Japanese-inspired display for their […]

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 […]
