In another first for the Vegas Video Network, this WEDNESDAY (2/15) at 8PM, we are going to combine two of your favorite shows for a special one-time event. In celebration of romance and all things couple-y, Living in Las Vegas (with Scott and Melissa) and Pub Crawl (with David and Alicia) are going to join together for a very special broadcast.
Grab your loved one. . .or that hot neighbor you’ve been lusting over (shame on you!) and join Alicia, Melissa, Dave and Scott as they talk about how each couple met (unusual on both accounts), their Valentine’s Day celebration, and our Quad-Crawl this weekend, which occurred just steps from the VVN studios.
It’s going to be a great show. Please be sure to join us!

The Vegas Video Network, the first and only LIVE online broadcast network in Las Vegas, is ready to do some more growing. We develop and produce completely original daily and weekly live and on-demand programming that has a world-wide reach. To date, our weekly average of live and on-demand downloads calculates to over two million (2,000,000) a year.
We have found ourselves in the enviable position of needing more help in our eleven-camera capable, all high definition, live streaming video studio. As a result, we’ve created an opening for a part-time, PAID, studio apprentice.
This is not a "go-get-me-some-coffee" type of gig.
We’re looking for a unique individual who wants to roll up their sleeves, work hard, and get deep into the inner workings of what is arguably the next step in broadcasting.
If you’ve ever wanted to get in on the ground floor of this exciting new way of reaching a world-wide audience, this may be the opportunity you’ve been looking for.
Sounds interesting? Cool. You’d be a great candidate if you are personable, enthusiastic, and willing to work crazy hours. You should be VERY comfortable around technology — you’ll be helping with. . .
- pre-production (cameras, lighting, sets, graphics, guest prepping),
- production (video, audio, cameras, live chat), and
- post-production (audio, video, graphics, software, computers, social media, online)
Naturally, you are a fast learner with an affinity for all things techy, so regardless of the work you’ll be asked to do, you’ll catch on quickly and get the job done. You should have a creative eye and mind, and should write well. As time goes on, you’ll be capable of doing everything from writing show notes to being a technical director for any of the VVN shows.
This position will require 16 to 20 hours a week of your time. There will be a mix of morning, afternoon and evening hours. And it may turn into a full-time position.
If you’re our (wo)man, let us know. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your resume, tell us a bit about your technical capabilities/experience, and let us know why you’d like to work in a dark studio that is usually occupied by two crazy individuals. If you’ve done any previous video work, we’d love to see that as well.
We look forward to hearing from you!

This year’s Meetup takes place at one of our favorite bars in Las Vegas — RHUMBAR at The Mirage. The folks at RHUMBAR have set aside an area just for our gathering!
As an added bonus, by RSVP’ing (see below for instructions), your first drink is on us!!
Anybody can stop by. To get on the list for your **free drink**, please RSVP Facebook AND send an email with a list of attendees (each of whom should have their own email address) to email@example.com.
These meetups are a BLAST. We’ve been having them since 2006 and they are always a great time to have a drink, meet old friends, and make new friends.
We will be located in the North-East corner of the outside lounge. There should be a large Vegas Video Network banner near us. And while the time of the event says 4-7PM on the Facebook page, you can better believe many of us will be there long after 7PM!
See you there!!!

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:
- Date/Time: Thursday, APRIL 28th, 2011. 6PM – 9PM
- 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.
- 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.)
- 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!

As those of you who are long time listeners/viewers of the Living in Las Vegas Podcast know, since launching the VEGAS VIDEO NETWORK in October/2010, we switched our main LiLV podcast feed from audio to video. Since then, we’ve received some very nice feedback about the switch (yes, I know Melissa is pretty). However, for some folks who don’t have video-viewing capabilities, or who want to listen to the show "on the go", the video-only options was limiting.
We’ve been considering this addition for some time. Come to find out, integrating an audio feed for each and every show currently running on the VEGAS VIDEO NETWORK, and doing so in an as automated fashion as possible, is not as easy as you might think.
We’ve spent time re-designing our production workflow and are happy to announce the Vegas Video Network now offers audio-only versions of all our current programming, including the Living in Las Vegas Podcast!
On the VVN website, we’ve added a new AUDIO page for folks who just want to listen or download their favorite episodes (LiLV or the other shows as well). I’ve added a audio-only RSS link to the top of the www.LivingInLV.com website.
Three Ways to Listen
If you want to list the most recent audio version of the LiLV Podcast on the web, click here.
For those of you who use iTunes, click here and iTunes will automatically start and load/subscribe to the new audio feed.
For those who want access to the RSS feed (suitable for Google Reader, for example), you’ll want to click this link.
Here are those links again:
- Living in Las Vegas Podcast (Audio only) - Website-based Episode Listing
- Living in Las Vegas Podcast (Audio only) – iTunes
- Living in Las Vegas Podcast (Audio only) - RSS Feed
Thanks all for the feedback and continued support. Melissa and I appreciate it!

This is pretty cool news, y’all.
AJ (that’s what his friends call him) will find himself in a “No Holds Barred. No restrictions” interview with our host-with-the-most, Brian Mollica.
AJ will be on the FEBRUARY 3rd, 2011 Awkward Silence episode, which starts LIVE at 6PM (PST). If you’ve ever wanted to ask AJ a question (like, “where’s the best place to go bandana shopping?”), THIS IS YOUR OPPORTUNITY TO DO SO!
See you on Thursday night!
