The only problem with this notion is that everything that was just laid out is only tied down to the atmosphere that is produced by the Las Vegas Strip. It is beyond imperative to understand Read the rest of this entry »

While Las Vegas is known as a well-traveled destination both for business and pleasure, the city itself is home to 567,641 residents, for a total of 1,902,834 in the metro area. With so much going on in Vegas at all hours of the night, sometimes it’s nice to simply kick back relax. While they may live in the City of Sin, not all residents “live in sin” as some outsiders may imagine from Las Vegas’ much hyped reputation. In fact, most locals lead relatively normal lives, on par with many major city residents.For example, in high-end residential parts of the city, featuring sprawling homes fully equipped with swimming pools, manicured lawns, high definition big screens with Direct tv Las Vegas NV looks no different than the well-to-do parts of say, Los Angeles CA, Dallas TX or Miami FL. Only 7 miles away from the strip, many affluent members of the Vegas community make their home in Seven Hills, a gated community which has come to be known as “The Beverly Hills of Nevada.” Home to golf courses and country clubs, not all homeowners hit it big in the casino (or run the casinos for that matter), merely members of society who have done well for themselves and appreciate a nice place to settle down. Of course, Seven Hills is not without its big names, such as Mike Tyson and eBay founder Pierre Omidyar. Read the rest of this entry »

While some high rollers find themselves comped a penthouse suite only minutes after walking through the casino doors, most Vegas bound tourists must find their own shelter with more limited resources, saving a few bucks to fund the fun. Newly minted young adults making their first pilgrimage to the desert are often in a particular bind, suffering from a woefully meager budget in a city where millionaires can be crowned and dethroned overnight. Here are a few places to say that will provide an authentic Vegas experience without setting you back too many black chips (hundreds).
- Bally’s Though Bally’s doesn’t compare to its elite neighbors in terms of luxury, it provides an equally central location on the strip. Since there is no requirement to gamble or mingle strictly where you stay, players are more than welcome to test their luck across the street at Caeser’s or the Bellagio while sidestepping pricy room costs. Bally’s is actually attached to Paris, providing a slightly more upscale atmosphere, not to say Bally’s is run down by any means. From a gaming standpoint, Bally’s also offers 5 dollar table minimums on most nights, as compared to 10 at most surrounding hotels, which can help for less experienced or financially endowed gamers to prolong their experience before hitting bankrupt.

- Jubilee (Bally’s) Jubilee gives viewers the most authentic display of Old Vegas still playing, complete with gorgeous, fully costumed show girls and beautifully choreographed dance sequences, culminating in an exquisite mastery of visual theatre. If you’re a typical guy and perhaps precise choreography doesn’t get your blood pumping, consider that Jubilee is a topless show.
- “O” by Cirque du Soleil (Bellagio) For lack of better words, “O” will blow your mind, challenging the very laws of physics, human lung capacity, and if local lawmakers have any semblance of social responsibility then perhaps even Las Vegas safety regulations as performers take to the pool in this surf and turf blend of synchronized swimming and acrobatic showmanship. A more detailed description wouldn’t do the show just, “O” is a modern marvel you will have to see to believe. Read the rest of this entry »

People watching on the Strip may be enough of a show for some Vegas visitors, but for those who truly want to be oohed and awed, there’s quite simply no place like Sin City. Vegas has firmly established itself as an often imitated, never replicated entertainment Mecca, more comparable to Disney World for adults than a viable metropolitan area. On the off chance you think you might be bored, try taking in one of the city’s world class live performance shows, of course, if you’re legitimately bored in Vegas, therapy is probably a better use of your time. These long-running Vegas classics will be sure to keep you on the edge of your seat.
- Penn and Teller (Rio) When night falls on the desert, Las Vegas lights up like a sprawling Christmas tree. The oasis of light shining bright amid the otherwise desolate arid region gives tourists the illusion that anything is possible, if not probable. Penn and Teller have been the premiere illusionists in Vegas, since they took their magic act to the Rio in 2001. The duo performs every night except Thursday, delivering a full 90 minutes of suspense, intrigue, bewilderment and laughter. Read the rest of this entry »
Posted in Craps September 24th, 2010
Amid the glitz and glamour of the Las Vegas strip, gambling is still king in Sin City, with casinos ultimately driving the many tourist attractions under the famous bright lights. Spending a weekend in Vegas without trying your luck on the tables would be like sticking to beer in wine country, ordering a salad at a steakhouse or wearing a blindfold to the Playboy Mansion. Of course, to a newcomer, the casino floor can be quite intimidating, particularly the commotion arising from the money hungry hordes crammed around the craps table. Craps is perhaps the most exciting bet in the casino, full of chance, camaraderie, and, if the dice fall right, big payouts. Here’s a quick rundown of the must-knows, after that, may beginner’s luck be with you.The Pass Line bet is the initial bet before a player begins his or her roll. When you “Bet the Pass,” you wager that the roller will spin either a 7 or 11, at which point each better will be rewarded in the amount equal to their bet. Only if the dice land showing 2, 3 or 12 (collectively), will you lose your bet right away. In the event any other number come up, play continues with bets still standing, only now the objective is for the roller avoid casting a 7. In order to win, a player must roll either a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10, before turning up a 7, matching the number to the original roll. Read the rest of this entry »
