And don’t get us started about those Las Vegas dice clocks. Recently, at Flamingo Las Vegas, this souvenir caught our eye. These beaded flamingos are $59, and….
Comedian and actor Jon Lovitz brings his unique comedic flair to Flamingo Vegas, Mar. 16-17, 2012.

Here’s a Las Vegas hook-up in two simple words: Social Rewards. Social Rewards is a program that gives you perks and freebies for things you’re probably already doing, like following your favorite Las Vegas hotels on Twitter, or liking them on Facebook, or telling friends about various Las Vegas awesomeness.

You never know who you’ll bump into when you’re in Las Vegas. As we strolled the Strip the other night, we spotted a TV crew tailing two Metro officers we can only assume were in the process of taping an episode of truTV’s “Vegas Strip.” The officers and their crew were all business as they….
You know how sometimes celebrity endorsements are kind of lame and disappointing? Well, Jimmy Kimmel talking up the Total Rewards loyalty program is kind of the opposite of that.

Here’s an important lesson: Just because it’s bigger doesn’t mean it’s better. That lesson applies to craps, too! When you approach a craps table, two big numbers jump out at you, the Big 6 and Big 8. Craps is all about the odds, and the 6 and 8 are decent bets, because only the 7….
As a Las Vegas blog, we have a vested interest in keeping track of both our wines and our spirits.
