An unlikely photo opp: Las Vegas parking garages

An unlikely photo opp: Las Vegas parking garages

Some of the most underappreciated Vegas photo attractions are – wait for it – parking garages. You probably don’t think there’s much to see in a parking garage, and that’s totally untrue, especially if you’ve ever watched a Vegas episode of “COPS.” JK. The rooftops are actually great places to…
Vegas must dos for March 2016

Vegas must dos for March 2016

While the rest of the country is wondering how many inches of snow they’re going to get before spring finally arrives, we’re contemplating how to avoid those pesky tan lines from our bikini jewelry. And this is why Vegas is one of the most popular spring break destinations in the…

Spots to enjoy a Vegas pool experience year round

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…

A Wynn-Wynn situation: Stay in a luxurious villa or duplex

We are big fans of Wynn Las Vegas. What’s not to love? We instantly feel fancy simply by walking through the elegant property. The resort’s beautiful atrium and the pool speak for themselves. Additionally, most restaurants have amazing views of waterfalls or the hotel’s sprawling golf course. (Bonus: Vegans can enjoy dining options at every restaurant,…

Must dos this weekend in Vegas: Sept. 3 – 6, 2015

Just like the year has four seasons, a week has an ebb and flow similar to that of a roller coaster. Think about it, in most cases, people are always waiting on the weekend just like their anticipation builds climbing an extreme roller coaster. For most people, it’s an uphill battle…

Bodacious bottle service in Las Vegas

Bodacious bottle service in Las Vegas

Few things in life are more satisfying than seeing someone walking toward you with a bottle of booze that you know is all yours. It’s like that birthday party when you were nine, except with, presumably, more alcohol and fewer clowns. It’s the epitome of Las Vegas partying and it’s…

Lounge your way to live music in Vegas

You come to Las Vegas for the glitz, the excitement, the rush of risking it all.  Sometimes, though, it’s nice to step back from the eager tourists carrying drinks by the yard and enjoy a quality cocktail or two while listening to live music. I’m not talking lounges with DJs…

Garth Brooks to return for six summer shows at Encore

Country music hero Garth Brooks ended a three-year run at Encore in November, but country music fans and the Las Vegas Strip are calling him back. Brooks will perform on two holiday weekends this summer at the Encore Theater. To commemorate his three years at the venue, the performances will…

Ten of the most unique chandeliers in Vegas

From historic elegance to high-tech swagger, the chandeliers that illuminate the casinos and other attractions in Las Vegas run the gamut. A variety of materials have been used to convey their unique designs – things like dazzling crystals, hand-blown glass, saxophones and even empty tequila bottles. Although some of these…

Go for a Night Swim at Las Vegas’ XS Nightclub

Though you can do plenty of each in this town, partying by day and partying by night tend to be very different experiences. The whole daylife pool club scene is an entirely different experience than your typical nightclub. Even when a nightclub opens up its pool patio, the general rule…

The Vegas Weekender: The fun is heating up in Vegas

This weekend in Las Vegas the decades collide with performances by ’80s group Duran Duran, and ’90s group New Kids on the Block. If that doesn’t sound tempting enough, cool off with a cocktail poolside or at an only-in-Vegas bar. Or, heat things up with a sexy performance by Crazy…

The Eastside Lounge for an Eastside girl

One of my favorite new places to go is the Eastside Lounge at Encore. This is partly because the “Eastside” portion has a duplicitous meaning — it’s on the east side of the Encore lobby, but it also reminds me of an intimate gathering spot you would find after carefully seeking out…

Grand tasting

Bradley and Burke, Schenk and Simon, Robuchon and Rao’s—and the list goes on. As far as the eye can see around the Caesars Palace pool, there were booths overflowing with food, hungry mouths ready to be fed and lots of smiles. Guests of the Uncork’d Grand Tasting on Friday night were treated to…
