#124: A Love Connection at the LiLV/VVN Meetup?

September 16, 2011

Oh sure, we deliver a nice balance of information and opinion about what it’s like to live in Las Vegas. . .and we’ve even helped a handful of folks get a job. But what about love? Well, in this episode of Living in Las Vegas, we link the names of the many people you’ve heard us talk about with their photos AND, perhaps, bring about our first love connection. Show notes:

#123: Road Trip [or How to Provoke a Steer to Charge Your Car]

September 7, 2011

Because Las Vegas is close to so many other cool places, for this episode of Living in Las Vegas, we thought we’d take a bit of a road trip over the Labor Day weekend. We visited Flagstaff, saw Huey Lewis and the News, and spent some time in Sedona. On the way home, we thought we’d stop by the Grand Canyon. That’s when the trouble started. Show notes:

#122: Sailor Jerry is not to be Trusted

August 31, 2011

Before we speak of the evil that is Sailor Jerry, we talk about one of the best deals in Las Vegas; Restaurant Week. Then, we get jazzy at The Smith Center and talk comedy at the Hard Rock Cafe. Show notes:

#121: Should You (or Your Parents) Retire in Las Vegas?

August 24, 2011

After talking about the upcoming meetup, car accidents on 215, one of the best comedy shows we’ve ever seen, and the fact that MGM has to deal with two disasters on their hands (Kardashians and the Harmon Tower), we consider whether or not we did the right thing by having Scott’s mom finally retire in Las Vegas.

In what began as an idea in the LiLV Live Chat Room has turned into our next Living in Las Vegas Podcast / Vegas Video Network Viewer Meetup!!!

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!!

****IMPORTANT****
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 meetup@vegasvideonetwork.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!!!

#119: What Really Happened at the VVN Invitational

August 10, 2011

Considering the high-stakes nature of the 1st Annual VVN Mini-Golf Invitational, it’s not surprising that some misinformation was disseminated. In this episode of Living in Las Vegas, we provide an accurate assessment of the event. We follow with a great experience at Capital Grille, which has the best deal on wine we’ve ever seen.

Finally, we start getting healthier and to celebrate we drink from a punch bowl made of ice (and filled with vodka) in a cabana at Caesars Palace then wonder how a chipmunk called our toll-free listener line.

#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:
