93: Is Las Vegas Still the Wild West?

January 26, 2011

When Scott and Melissa first moved to Las Vegas in August of 2005, the area had kind of a Wild West feel to it. It was exciting, expanding and not altogether trustworthy. In this episode of the Living in Las Vegas Podcast, we learn life is certainly more refined ’round these here parts, although you’d be wise not to go robbing a bar any time soon. (Yeeehaaaw!)

92: Foreclosures, Not Just for Homes Anymore

January 19, 2011

With all the news about home foreclosures in Las Vegas (we’re #1, we’re #1), it isn’t terribly surprising that business foreclosures pop up in the news from time to time. . .unless it’s one of your favorite shopping, eating, and hanging out locations.

Then it’s personal. (And confusing.)

In this edition of the Living in Las Vegas Podcast, we talk about the foreclosure procedures facing Town Square (bad?) and, on a brighter note, being invited onto the Recycled Percussion stage (good?). Show notes:

91: A Local’s Look at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas

January 12, 2011


There a lot riding on the success of the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. Many think it’s likely to be the last big hotel/casino built in Las Vegas for another decade. It’s located right next to (and has to compete with) CityCenter, the $8Billion+, mixed-use complex owned by MGM Resorts International. And unlike most other Strip properties, it’s doesn’t appear to have a large “player’s club” to work with. In this edition of the Living in Las Vegas Podcast, we talk about the newest property on The Strip. Show notes:

When it comes to great Las Vegas Video, we’re working hard at the VEGAS VIDEO NETWORK to develop great content.  With that great content comes the hope that we attract great sponsors to the network and our shows. 

I’m proud to say that with the New Year comes a new sponsor for the VEGAS VIDEO NETWORK. We are very proud to be working with Dr. Richard Rothman and LASIK of Nevada.

In practice for over 20 years, Dr. Rothman has performed over 30,000 40,000 LASIK procedures and is the most experienced LASIK surgeon living in Nevada. I’ve known Dr. Rothman for several years now and have been impressed with his practice and the testimonials he continues to receive.

Speaking of testimonials, the LASIK of Nevada ad we’re running features Academy Award-nominated actor Chazz Palminteri, who flew from New York to get his LASIK procedure done by Dr. Rothman.

As part of LASIK of Nevada’s sponsorship, I asked if they’d offer VEGAS VIDEO NETWORK viewers special pricing. . .and they agreed to do so! Simply visit LasikOfNV.com/VVN and you’ll see that in addition to 50% off premium LASIK, if you mention “VVN”, you’ll receive another $200 discount!

If you’re considering LASIK, be sure to include Dr. Rothman and LASIK of Nevada in your research!
