Las Vegas Dining
Las Vegas is one of the top destinations in the country for the beverage industry. Top-tier mixologists and bartenders paired with stunning spatial concepts and views create one-of-a-kind celebrations and experiences. With so many spots to choose from, we collected the best bars and lounges you must try.
Las Vegas Gambling
Nearly one in five U.S. adults bet money on sports over the past year, according to a survey released Wednesday. The report from the Pew Research Center shows that 19% of adults surveyed said they had wagered on sports. The most common way they did so was by placing bets with friends or family, such as a private betting pool, fantasy league or a casual bet; 15% of respondents said they bet in this manner.

I was in Vegas recently and I need some advice as to what I should have done in the following scenarios that I experienced.
I was playing the automatic craps machine where all players share the outcome of the large dice that roll in an acrylic tube in the center. During a roll, one die did not lay flat causing “no outcome”. When I’ve seen this in the past, everyone would wait about a minute, and the machine would “bump” the dice automatically to cause an outcome and that is fair. But on this occasion, a player did not wait and rose up, physically shook the center portion supports to force an outcome. The server saw this and told the guy, “If security sees you do that, they will talk to you.” Security didn’t come by. I was displeased with what I witnessed because my money was in play and a player interfered with the dice roll. Question: What would’ve been the best course of action for me to take? Final note: This was at a casino on Fremont street during the week in the afternoon (i.e. it wasn’t busy).
Same casino, same machine, same day. I was the shooter and I have to press the wide red button to roll the dice. The point was already established and my money was in play. I hit the button with the butt of my fist and it didn’t shoot. I hit the button a second time and it didn’t shoot. I hit it a third time and it comes up as “7 out” and I lose on my bets. I “felt” cheated because my intent was for the dice to roll when I physically hit the button the first time and I would’ve readily accepted that outcome. Question: Besides leaving, should I have notified someone on-site what happened to me and/or what were my options?
I’ve been to Vegas many times over the past 20 years and this is the only awkward gaming experience I’ve ever had.
Thanks for your advice!

Las Vegas Tours & Attractions
Las Vegas is known for its casinos, restaurants, clubs, and live entertainment. Most visitors to Vegas spend time enjoying the infamous Las Vegas Strip, as well as the always entertaining Fremont Street Experience Downtown. While these areas are both a lot of fun, there’s so much to see outside of these popular destinations. While Las Vegas locals know all about the great outdoors of the Vegas Valley, it may be a surprise to those visiting Vegas that we have so many outdoor attractions.

(Video Publishers Notes) It’s cocktail time!! Finally summer is over and we are no longer in the scorching heat. So now it’s time to enjoy the outdoors before it gets too cold and sip on a nice refreshing adult beverage. Whether you like beer, wine, cocktails, or even shots, I’m going to show you some of the best outdoor bars and lounges that you can find in Las Vegas. These are all located on the Las Vegas Strip too! We’re going to El Segundo Sol at the Fashion Show, Beer Park at the Paris, Cabo Wabo at Planet Hollywood, Rhumbar at Mirage, and Aft Cocktail Deck at the Wynn. Hope you enjoy!
(Video Publishers Notes) We have stayed at Planet Hollywood Las Vegas many, MANY times and always notice the very long line to get into Gordon Ramsay Burger. On our last trip we decided to see what all the hype was about so we stopped by to make a reservation and learned that the reason the line is always so long is because they don’t take reservations. Thats, right first come first serve so get ready to wait OR if you’re Diamond or higher you can pretty much walk right in like we did.
(Video Publishers Notes) So you want to take a one day tour to the Grand Canyon? Do you go to the Grand Canyon West Rim or do you go to the Grand Canyon South Rim? What’s the difference?
That is a question I get asked every single day on my tours. So I made up this little video to give you a quick look at what each tour is and why they are different, yet the same!
Either tour will give you some spectacular views of one of the greatest natural wonder on earth, The Grand Canyon. Each Rim is a different experience.
