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 Dining
Highest-rated breakfast restaurants in Las Vegas, according to Tripadvisor
With the advent of Big Data, it’s now easier than ever to quantify what people like around the globe. And when it comes to food, Americans seem to have specific opinions. American dining brands have a long and storied history, and whether they’re fast food, fast-casual, high-end, or super cheap, U.S. restaurants offer something for almost everyone.
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.
