I loved the new MEADE telescope. With the 20" mirror and carbon fiber/kevlar frame, Saturn would fill your viewfinder. So far there are only 3 of them. With the GPS equatorial MAX mount it runs about $40,000.
STUDIO 54 Grand Re-Opening
Dave and friend outside the remodeled Studio 54...
The Las Vegas Tenors Holiday Concert at Our Lady of Las Vegas Catholic Church was inspiring.
Mark Giovi, Bobby Black, Bill Fayne, and Teddy Davie brought us all in to the holiday spirit. Also singing was Michaelina Bellamy (seated on right).
The Las Vegas Tenors performed at South Point on New Year's Eve at noon.
12 Dessertly Sins of Christmas at RAIN brought together some great chefs and generous people for charity. Chefs donated time, talent, and a lot of sugar... guests brought gift cards loaded with money for those that need it this season... and the holiday spirit was flowing all night.
The Las Vegas B.U.S.E. Club (Business professionals, Up and comers, Socialites, and Entrepreneurs) had their holiday party at the Stirling Club on December 12th. The guest speaker was TahitiPetey along with the Starfish Girls Elves. We got to see the hot new X-Board... a rotary powered Jet Surfboard that goes over 60 MPH. I guess we don't need waves to surf anymore. Watch out Lake Meade!
TahitiPetey also announced plans to build a state-of-the-art Aquarium in Las Vegas. He said that it will rival the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, and The Shedd Aquarium in Chicago. I love the idea!
Las Vegas Vodka is here in time for the holidays. This premium vodka is now being served in hotels and casinos throughout Las Vegas. If you want to take a bottle home, you can get it at Harrah's Gift Shop on the Strip, and Lee's Discount Liquors.
The Holidays and Music were made for each other. The Palms was full of music and holiday cheer with Jerry Lopez, Santa Fe and The Fat City Horns, Paul Peterson, and Jason Peterson DeLaire. Their version of "Little Drummer Boy" was the best that I've ever heard.
Introducing them onstage was Ric Gould, Host and Producer of "The Original Sunday Morning Jazz Show" on 97.1 The Point.
Nicholas Cole captivates the Galleria Bar in Caesars Palace. They were dancing in the aisles on Friday, December 1st to music from Harry Connick, Jr. to Earth Wind and Fire. Check out Steve Tuminello's story on the MUSIC SEEN page.
It's been a while since I've been in Caesars Palace. I was impressed. It looked really good all decked out for the holidays. Check out the colorful Christmas Tree out front.
It's hard to believe that Caesars Palace is celebrating 40 years on The Las Vegas Strip.
The Fat City Horns started the night in The Lounge at The Palms on Monday with a 6 piece brass holiday medley that was unbelievable. I'm told that they played the new arrangement for the first time after one practice session just before the show. These guys are good.
Clint Holmes joined Santa Fe and The Fat City Horns for a song that Clint scatted. WOW! Superior entertainment. Did I mention how good they were?
The Lounge had a lot of energy. There were many new faces in the audience including a duet from Pittsburgh that was sitting in front of me. One of the ladies said, "these guys are so good, they brought tears to my eyes". Also in the audience was Kelly Clinton and Bobby Black.
The Motor Trend Auto Show at the Las Vegas Convention center on Thanksgiving weekend included a visit from Spiderman...
and New Cars...
Riding the Monorail on Sunday the 26th...
The Las Vegas Monorail winds around the Wynn Country Club. I got this shot of the beautiful 18th hole and waterfalls right out of the monorail car window.
