Las Vegas Shows
The man who has made the Statue of Liberty vanish and walked through the Great Wall of China, strives to travel through time. Living in the moment won’t suffice for David Copperfield. This is true in his stage show at MGM Grand Theater, which employs black-and-white film clips depicting Copperfield’s father, and a time-worn, handwritten letter written decades ago. The illusionist’s zeal to span generations is celebrated on an even grander scale at his own private museum of magic. He’s dubbed it the David Copperfield International Museum and Library of the Conjuring Arts, but passersby won’t find an elaborate sign outside, or any indication at all of what lies inside the 40,000-square-foot, one-time warehouse just a few miles from his eponymous theater where he performs 15 shows a week.
Las Vegas Dining
City skylines, desert sunsets, even traffic lights on the street below. For some reason, everything in Las Vegas looks better from a few stories up. Fortunately, there’s no shortage of rooftop patios in Downtown Las Vegas, on the Strip, and beyond for open-air dancing, drinking and mingling beneath the neon-tinged sky. From elegant lounges tailor-made for sequined dresses and champagne to laid-back spots where friends can gather over pitchers of beer, these rooftop patios set the stage for a perfect night in Las Vegas.
Las Vegas Tours & Attractions
The museum tweeted “It’s not every day that we have rock star royalty visit the Neon Boneyard. Thank you Mick Jagger for adding the Neon Museum to your list of sites to see in Las Vegas.” The Rolling Stones were in town to play at Allegiant Stadium.
Las Vegas Real Estate
A touch of Las Vegas in Palm Springs is now available. Located at 911 Juarez Ave., the stunning Caesars Palace-inspired estate in the exclusive Rose Hill enclave of Las Palmas Heights has been listed for $11.8 million. This iconic estate was originally designed by renowned architecture firm Buff & Hensman in 1972 and included structural and interior designs that resembled features of Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. The home was first constructed for Jerry Zarowitz (of Caesars Palace fame) in the 1970s and the inspiration for the original design.
Other Las Vegas News
I’ll often take the bike instead of the car. I live roughly a mile and a half from Main Street and can be there in 10 minutes, even if I roll out at a poky pace. Sometimes, locals arrange giant group rides on weeknights-100, 200 bikes, easy-and occasionally I’ll merge with that crowd, one LED light-festooned bike among many.

(Video Publishers Notes) Here’s some of the Best Restaurants in the Downtown Las Vegas Area. This video is a little different so please stay tuned.
Downtown Las Vegas, Fremont Street, Old Vegas. Whichever you choose to call it, is full of great local and one of a kind restaurants. If you walk a little past the Fremont Street Experience, down Fremont East and the surrounding streets are these restaurants. They are known by both locals and tourists and I just can’t wait for the rest of the world to know them too. In this video, my friend Tom from Lip Smacking Foodie Tours is joining me to explore these food and drink joints.
