Las Vegas Shows
After taking a brief break during the pandemic shut down, “Wow- The Vegas Spectacular” returns to the stage at the Rio All-suite Hotel & Casino on Tuesday, Aug. 10. “WOW” has performed over 1,200 performances since its debut at the resort in 2017.
Las Vegas Dining
Many cities are identified with an iconic food. Philadelphia has its cheesesteaks, New York has pizza, New Orleans has po-boys, Baltimore has crab cakes. Las Vegas has all of them, because Vegas means a buffet. “I think it’s about having a sense of indulgence and having everything. All of the choices are there for you but you don’t really have to make a decision,” says Wes Holton, executive chef at Bellagio Las Vegas, “I think that kind of sums up Vegas and what people expect when they come to Vegas.”
Las Vegas Tours and Attractions
On the wonderful journey to fulfill the promptings of destiny, some places in this world are legendary. There’s a heightened sensitivity to the promises of life, more riotous excursion with the privileged glimpse into human-made attractions. The city of entertainment, Las Vegas, is well known as the ‘Entertainment Capital of the World.’
Las Vegas Gambling
A visitor from Texas had some good luck on Friday the 13th when she hit a massive jackpot on the Las Vegas Strip. According to a news release, Nora Davila from Pharr, Texas, turned a $2 bet into $1,021,166 while playing IGT’s Wheel of Fortune Double 3X4X5X Pay game at the Venetian.

Elvis is there, of course. So are Rat Pack poster boy Frank Sinatra, film goddess Marilyn Monroe and a bemused alien from Area 51, because no self-respecting collection of Vegascentric art could exclude icons like those. But it’s the context of the figures — Elvis wearing a Las Vegas Raiders jersey, Ol’ Blue Eyes dressed like a retro NFL coach in a Raiders cap, Marilyn falling out of a Raiderette uniform, and Alien Guy going all-in for the Raiders — that signal the collection’s purpose as a celebration, even a meshing, of Las Vegas history and Raiders tradition.
Las Vegas Real Estate
Basketball Hall of Famer and TNT NBA analyst Shaquille O’Neal, who has business ties in Las Vegas, has sold the home he bought in Southern Highlands pre-pandemic and turned around and paid nearly $2 million for a private 1-acre compound near Wayne Newton’s former estate in the southeast valley, according to the listing agent’s social media post.
