#105: People ARE Moving to Las Vegas!

April 27, 2011

When we first launched the show, our tagline was, “With 5,000 people moving here each month, somebody had to spill the beans.”

That was in 2006.

Until recently, we’ve seen a net loss in residents here in Clark County. But in this episode of the Living in Las Vegas Podcast, we hear from two viewers who are making the move to Las Vegas. YES! Show notes:

#104: Did We Find the Best Show in Vegas?

April 20, 2011

Once you’ve lived in Las Vegas long enough, you begin to notice that many of the shows on the Strip are similar. Same gags. Same stunts. Same music. But in this episode of the Living in Las Vegas Podcast, we’ve come across a show that is uniquely funny, a little dirty, full of “how are they doing that” moments, and should be required viewing for all producers in the city.

I’ve been working with Ted Newkirk over at AccessVegas.com to create a one-of-a-kind meetup/happy hour for all the VEGAS VIDEO NETWORK viewers and Access Vegas readers (locals and tourists alike). Ted has outdone himself in that he’s arranged for us to host a very special "pre-Grand Opening Party" event at Nikki Beach, located at the Tropicana, which has just completed a $100 million makeover.

A full press release will follow, but here are the highlights:

  1. Date/Time: Thursday, APRIL 28th, 2011. 6PM – 9PM

  2. First TWO drinks are on us!! By sending your RSVP to HappyHour@VegasVideoNetwork.com, you will be placed on the guest list and receive two free complimentary drinks.

  3. You MUST RSVP: To receive your two free drinks, you must RSVP separately for each person attending (no "so-and-so plus one"). This means each person in attendance will provide their email address. (No, we’re not going to sell your email address — Emails will be used to update and remind everyone coming of the date and late-breaking info.)

  4. Location: The brand new Nikki Beach and Cafe at the Tropicana Las Vegas. (This event is one week prior to the big Grand Opening!)

The event will be hosted by Access Vegas CEO Ted Newkirk and yours truly. Also in attendance will be your favorite hosts from all of the VEGAS VIDEO NETWORK programs (Living in Las Vegas, Pub Crawl, Golf & Other Fore-Letter Words, Awkward Silence, Let’s Bet!, and Getting REAL (Estate) in Vegas). Also in attendance will be hosts for two new shows that have not yet been publically announced. (Both are VERY well known here in Las Vegas.)

Looking forward to seeing everybody. PLEASE TELL A FRIEND and send your name and email address to HappyHour@VegasVideoNetwork.com. The new Nikki Beach looks amazing and a good time will be had by all!

Access Vegas / VEGAS VIDEO NETWORK MeetUp + Happy Hour

#102: Tie Your Mother Down [In Elvis’ Shower]

April 5, 2011

After recovering from our Ellis Island adventure (that episode was the most watched LiLV video since the launch of the VEGAS VIDEO NETWORK), we decided to spend much of this weekend at the always-busy Las Vegas Hilton. In this episode of the Living in Las Vegas Podcast, we hang with a comedic legend, tie a mother down, and sing in Elvis’ shower. Show notes:
