Spots to enjoy a Vegas pool experience year round

Waaah. Summer is already over and just thinking about these past few months makes us want to relive the season all over again. (In the words of  Uncle Rico, “Oh man. I wish I could go back in time.”) But unlike Uncle Rico from the popular 2005 “Napoleon Dynamite” movie, we…

Mother Nature can be a total show-off, and there’s no better place to witness her strutting her stuff than the outskirts of the Vegas valley. If you can peel yourself away from the casinos long enough, we highly recommend spending a few hours sweating out last night’s sins while taking…
Discovering Lake Mead

Discovering Lake Mead

I know what you’re thinking; you see that sketchy bath tub ring around Lake Mead and say to yourself: There’s probably not a lot going on out there. WRONG PLAYA. That couldn’t be further from the truth. We may be in the desert, but we sure know how to make…

Manneken Pis: Public peeing on Fremont Street

You no longer have to peruse the downtown alleyways to see someone relieving themselves. Las Vegas is now home to a bronze replica of a mischievous little boy “taking a leak” at the main entrance of The D Las Vegas. Manneken Pis, which is Flemish for “little man pee,” has…

Kabuki takes Las Vegas by storm

Just when we thought we couldn’t love the Fountains of Bellagio any more than we already do, they go and produce something so over-the-top we can’t help but want their name tattooed on our hindquarters. Oh wait – this is not that kind of article.   The ancient Japanese art of…

Intro to autumn: the Palazzo’s floral grand finale

Ciao Bella. 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. The Palazzo Waterfall Atrium has provided us with the festive atmosphere all summer long…
Atomic Vegas – Sin City and the bomb

Atomic Vegas – Sin City and the bomb

A lot of people see the glitz and glam of the Las Vegas Strip and don’t realize the critical role we’ve played in world history. A history that not only shaped this city, but is still accessible to those who visit today. Vegas is intertwined with the development, testing and…

Behind the scenes at Mandalay Bay’s Shark Reef Aquarium with our Vegas Insiders

There’s a reason the whole country is obsessed with Shark Week, shark attacks, Jaws and everything else shark-related. It’s because they’re superawesomelymegabadassterrific, duh. So much so that the Mandalay Bay named their Shark Reef Aquarium after them (ok so technically this is speculation, but it totally seems legit). Shark Reef has…

Picasso seduces Vegas at the Bellagio

Picasso seduces Vegas at the Bellagio

When you fall in love with an artist, you never really know how you’ll be portrayed. If you’re Françoise Gilot, you pretty much hit the jackpot, because your portrait is currently hanging on the wall of the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art. Luckily for her, she was having a great…
How to beat the Vegas summer heat

How to beat the Vegas summer heat

“Sure, Vegas is hot but it’s a dry heat.” Don’t you just love when people say that? Like 105 degrees is somehow not HOT. Just because we don’t have much humidity in the desert, doesn’t mean we don’t need to find ingenious ways to keep cool. We had our own version…

Where to catch 4th of July fireworks in Vegas

So you’ve come to Vegas to celebrate the good ole U.S. of A, have you? Well get ready, because you came to the right place. There’s no such thing as red, white and gloom, and in this town we’ve already started celebrating. Big shock there, huh? We’ve got a list of…

Mandalay Bay’s Shark Reef celebrates the big 1-5

Dear Swarovski, please send over a swanky crystal vase (that’s pronounced vaaaahz for all you non-sophisticates out there) because we’re celebrating Shark Reef Aquarium’s 15th anniversary. And in true Vegas fashion, the appropriate thing to do is throw an all-day bash. On Saturday, June 20 the Shark Reef in Mandalay Bay is honoring…
