#180: A First-Hand Look at the Wonderful Life of a High Roller

January 9, 2013

Living in Las Vegas in back!

Scott and Melissa start the New Year by recapping their New Year’s Eve festivities on The Strip. After we reveal the best place ever to park on New Year’s Eve, we pull the curtain back and see how the high rollers live when they come to Vegas. We start by sipping (and spilling) some wine that we found not so fine, nibble at the only 3-Star Michelin restaurant in town, and count our winnings in a unique sky-high suite! (ALERT: You’ll see the largest “winning stack” you’ll likely have ever seen…don’t miss it!) Show notes:

#178: How Do You Judge An American Idol Winner?

December 12, 2012

We are getting into the holiday spirit here at VVN, so we are giving away free stuff!

Scott and Melissa tell you how to get a free beer, hold a contest for some more free items, and reveal our inaugural Talktails holiday show. Then, after a discussion about “Reality TV” and the harm they do, we pretend to wear a too-tight Cowelian t-shirt as we pass judgement on American Idol Winner Taylor Hicks’ show at Bally’s.

#176: SlotZilla

November 28, 2012

Scott and Melissa return from Effingham to their first-ever tassel wearing audience. Together they share stories of camouflage and liquor in airports, overpriced steak with great service, and an 11 story monster called SlotZilla set to invade the Fremont Street Experience. (Scott would look good in tassels and camo shorts!) Show notes:

89: Fine, I Won’t Pick the Next Movie

December 22, 2010

As we recount many of our holiday traditions, this episode of the Living in Las Vegas Podcast reminds the viewer that when it comes to watching a DVD on Christmas day with your family, a film that features full-frontal male nudity may not be the right way to go. Show notes:

Christmas Gathering

Last weekend Melissa and I had a GREAT time joining a bunch of friends we’ve made via the LiLV Podcast for dinner and drinks at Buca Di Beppo, on Lake Mead Blvd.  Besides enjoying the company of Jacob, Sally, Alicia, David, Cheryl, Brad, Sally, Kerry and Perry, we were joined by the Pope himself.

Hard to beat that!

Afterwards, Melissa, David, Alicia and I headed down to Frankie’s Tiki Room

I’ve included a link to some photos I’ve uploaded on Picasa.  (Some of those Frankie’s photos did not make it online.  Yikes!)

Merry Christmas to all!
