Magical and mind-bending facts that we betcha didn’t know

In our opinion, we Vegas Insiders are a pretty magical bunch. Not only are we stellar at making money appear on the blackjack table (we are still riding our beginner’s luck) but we can also make beer disappear like you wouldn’t believe.

However, as magical as we like to think we are, we are realizing that we simply cannot entertain the demanding masses by guzzling mountain-chilling brews for 90 minutes – yeah, whatever. So, while we are sticking to “The Corner Bar Showroom” (aka the bar next to our office where we honed our “magic” skills to perfection) and probably won’t ever make it to the big time until we finally learn how to make Bieber disappear. We are a-OK leaving the tricks of the trade up to the professionals.

In Vegas land, our headlining magicians and mind-benders will never reveal how they cut their assistants in half, make helicopters appear out of thin air, or weasel their way into your psyche, but we (magically) coerced some of them into disclosing some interesting facts about their shows that we betcha didn’t know.

Trading one desert for another, I moved to Las Vegas from Arizona nearly three years ago. It was something about the sparkling lights and the all-encompassing entertainment factor that persuaded me to swap cacti for casinos and dry heat for well…even drier heat. And while I do love a good show, I will always keep true to my country girl ways seeing that I am an absolute sucker for a good country concert and will always indulge the opportunity to go out country dancing! But in a city that undoubtedly has some of the world’s best cuisine, a wild assortment of endless experiences, and of course phenomenal shows, Vegas certainly has that unparalleled good time vibe that can make a city slicker out of just about anyone… including myself!
