Las Vegas Magician Mike Hammer Is Enjoying The Best Of Both Worlds

Chicago-born magician and comedian Mike Hammer has been building his name in the Las Vegas entertainment scene for more than two decades, including his current 11-years-and-counting stint headlining his show at the Four Queens on historic downtown’s Fremont Street. His rapid-fire delivery keeps audiences on their toes, then his sleight-of-hand skills astonish all. And now Hammer’s pulling double duty, cruising to the Strip most nights to perform as a primary cast member in fellow magician Criss Angel’s new AMYSTIKA—The Secret Revealed production at Planet Hollywood Resort.

Las Vegas Gambling

Relic game Sigma Derby still attracting players to Las Vegas casino

The D has become somewhat of a mecca for gamblers — mostly small-time gamblers — who want to play a vintage coin-operated slot machine that is the only one of its kind in Las Vegas and one of the last in the United States. On the second floor at the popular downtown gaming hall, up to 10 players at a time can be found playing the Sigma Derby Horse Track — and nearby gawkers can be seen looking at its flashing yellow-and-orange facade while five tiny plastic horses endlessly gallup around a miniature race track with faux dirt.

Touring Las Vegas’ Many Elvis-Related Locations

Elvis Presley’s footprints are all over this Valley. He began leaving them in April 1956, when he performed a two-week run of shows in the Venus Room of the now-defunct New Frontier Hotel and Casino. The property was torn down in 2007, but that doesn’t change that fact that those blue suede shoes were once planted on the northwest corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Fashion Show Drive. And while those New Frontier shows were tepidly received (Las Vegas Sun writer Bill Willard called Elvis and his band “uncouth” and “a bore”), Elvis still had a lot of Vegas ahead of him.

Some Top Spots for Alfresco Dining in Las Vegas

Eating outside is one of the great joys of restaurant dining, but Las Vegas can get hot as blazes, and let’s not get started on the wind. Nobody wants to get scorched in a dust storm while eating a Cobb salad and sipping an iced tea. Thankfully, many Southern Nevada restaurants have created cool, shaded outdoor spaces where dishes — and good company — can be enjoyed with just the right touch of nature. Thumbs-up for misters and sunshades.

Upon returning to the Las Vegas terminal, pilots are responsible for sanitizing and preparing the aircraft for their next tour and set of passengers.

Where to Find the Best Barbecue in Las Vegas

Barbecue can be a touchy subject in Las Vegas. Conversations usually begin with “Vegas never had good barbecue until…” and then debates erupt over how to finish the sentence. Some restaurants earn equal amounts of praise and complaints. Others are automatically discarded for trite reasons (like being on the Strip, for example). So where to begin? While barbecue menus may look similar to the casual observer, the low-and-slow style of smoking meats leaves little room for error. A good operation requires the expertise of a seasoned pitmaster and well-crafted side dishes. A heavy dose of charm doesn’t hurt either. Ready to form an opinion of your own? Check out the following restaurants to see how the barbecue scene is booming in Las Vegas.
