As you already know, Sin City is all about that new-new. Whether it’s new Las Vegas shows, things to do in Las Vegas or Vegas restaurants, this city is always on the up-and-up. So it’s no surprise that EMERGE Impact + Music wanted to unleash their roster of musicians, speakers and tastemakers onto the Entertainment Capital of the World. And did they ever. Showcases on showcases at Harrah’s, The LINQ, Flamingo, Brooklyn Bowl and The Bunkhouse Saloon inspired new ideas about engaging with each other, activism and even introduced some new artists to the playlist rotation.

It gets cold in Northern Nevada. Like, Leo in “The Revenant,” type of cold. Maybe that’s a bit of a stretch, but after spending the majority of my life up north, I was ready to kick the crappy weather to the curb and start working on my year-round tan. Initially, my desire to move to Las Vegas solely revolved around the weather, and that’s it. Little did I know what this city truly had to offer. Where else can you pop into a grocery store at 3 a.m. and see a showgirl buying almond milk and kale, or hit the local dry cleaners to catch a Cirque performer dropping off their costume? This town is 24/7 excitement, and I haven’t even mentioned gettin’ down at the hottest nightclub or the questionable decisions you make at sketchy downtown dive bars. Adventure in abundance is why I love Vegas. And it’s usually available where you least expect it.
