76: Living in Las Vegas, Acting Like a Tourist

February 27, 2010

While there are certainly a few things making life in Las Vegas a bit tough for many of our fellow Las Vegans (unemployment and housing prices, for example), we love that we live in a city that was once our go-to place for weekend getaways. We’re just 30 minutes away from some of the best food, lodging and entertainment the country has to offer.

Which is pretty cool.

In this edition of the Living in Las Vegas Podcast, we review some of the touristy things we’ve been up to during the last couple of months. Show notes:

  • Pre-Bachelorette Party Chat

We really get a kick when one of our listeners sends us a Friends photo and includes a tip-of-the-hat to the Living in Las Vegas Podcast!  Our very first photo, from Sheena in Massachusetts (now San Diego, I believe), did so and so have Mark & Luz (Spain), Stuart (Moscow), Bill (Indiana), and Joel (Israel).  About 30 minutes ago, Dani from Las Vegas added her own T.O.T.H . photo as well! 

According to Dani’s photo, she is “Definitely ‘Living in Las Vegas’ Baby!”  That’s the way we like it!  Living.  In Las Vegas. 

Welcome to the website, Dani.  And thanks again for joining the fun!

By the way, are YOU on our Friends page?  Kim O. did it.  And so did Dani!  Just attach a photo of yourself to an email and send it to friends@livinginlv.com.  It’s Easy.  It’s Free. And it’ll likely get Scott to pay for the first round of drinks if you’re sipping a beverage with the Whitney’s.

Okay, well that’s not completely true. 

Yes, Melissa and I think of all our listeners as our friends.  And if it were up to me, I’d simply grab your photo from Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, MySpace, wherever and automatically add your smiling face to our Friends of LILV Page.

Buuuuuuut several privacy statutes prevent me from doing so.

So, we get by with an little (email) help from our friends – most recently, Kim O. from San Diego!!

Kim continues to prove that along with being the smartest podcast audience in the world, the Living in Las Vegas Podcast listeners are good looking people, too!

I don’t mean to brag, I don’t mean to boast,
but LiLV Friends are the BEST (according to this post).

Kim recently signed up to our E-mail list and immediately decided that besides receiving groovy email stuff, she wanted her whites to be whiter. 

But how?”, Kim thought to herself.

Then it dawned on her.  She remembered visiting the Friends page and learning that by simply emailing her photo to friends@livinginlv.com, her whites would be whiter.

Ahhhh, problem solved,” Kim sighed.

Welcome to the website, Kim!  And may I say, what nice whites you have.

By the way, are YOU on our Friends page?  If you’re not, you should be!  Just attach a photo of yourself to an email and send it to friends@livinginlv.com.  Life as you know it will improve and you’ll be blessed by the universe!

It’s been WAY TOO LONG since we had our last official Listener Meet Up.  This travesty must be resolved!  Our first Meet Up was a thrill for us, and each subsequent gathering has been a kick as well.

So why the drought?

No (good) reason, I’m afraid.  Melissa and I are busy folks but that’s no excuse for not creating an excuse to meet up with groovy folks like yourself!

Details will follow, but I wanted to put this date out there now.  The plan is to have our Living in Las Vegas Podcast Spring Meet Up on SATURDAY, April 24th, 2010.

Time and location are to be determined.  If you have a suggestion, PLEASE let me know.

Melissa and I are looking forward to sipping a joyful beverage and hanging out with the greatest people on this earth.  In the meantime, why don’t we all hang out? (Those great people are so hard to talk to.)


SAVE THIS DATE: SATURDAY, APRIL 24th, 2010.
START TIME: 6:30PM
LOCATION: Brio Restaurant, Town Square (South Las Vegas Blvd, by Fry’s)

To celebrate my birthday this past weekend, Melissa made reservations at Aria (in CityCenter). We were very impressed with the property overall and took this video upon entry into our room. We learned that automation is cool, when Aria says Blackout curtains, they mean it, and you better be sure you want something out of that minibar. . .because if you move it, you pay for it.

For other videos, visit the new Living in Las Vegas YouTube Channel.

p.s. During our entire stay, all the casinos we visited (Luxor, Excalibur, New York New York, Aria) were PACKED.

p.s.s. What do you think of what we saw? Would love to hear from y’all!

Here’s a quicky video I took when Melissa and I met a few friends downtown for dinner, drinks and live comedy.  This video is from Firefly, which is located within the Plaza Hotel and Casino.  As you’ll see, they’ve got a GREAT view of Fremont Street.

Just curious. . .I was wondering if the folks who visit this website or subscribe to our podcast use online blackjack guides to become a better blackjack player.  Do they help when you’re playing live versus online?  How about for other games like craps, roulette, and hold ‘em?
