LAS VEGAS NEWS – of interest to tourists:



HOOPS IN VEGAS II – This August 15 celebrity charity basketball tournament is scheduled to feature appearances by Tom Arnold, Marcus Canby, Ron Harper, Jason Kidd, Danny Manning, Rob Lowe, Ed McMahon, Kurt Rambis, Arnold Schwarzenegger and many more. This event will be held at the Lied Gym on the campus of UNLV and tickets at (702) 474-4000. THE HARD ROCK is within walking distance of UNLV (and also has a free shuttle to the Strip).

SECOND PHASE OF VENETIAN – The Tam O’Shanter motel (located between the Desert Inn and The Venetian) is scheduled for demolition in August to make way for the second phase of the Venetian. The Venetian is worth the visit, although valet parking should be avoided if possible because of delays (not uncommon at big strip casinos — we park next door at the Casino Royale right behind the casino — a 30 second walk to the front of the Venetian). And while some of the retail shops are not yet open, the Canal Shops are well worth the visit. This unique shopping area features a canal running the length of the shopping area, with gondola rides available. We will have a full report when the project is completed.

CATS – The Musical plays the MGM Grand September 7-12. Tickets at (702) 891-7777 and MGM discount rooms are available at MGM Grand Las Vegas.

WINNER! – Richard Perkins of Ft. Collins, CO is the winner of the $472 coupon book from Station Casinos. Richard was our 10’th entry.
