NFL Las Vegas Stadium Approved
Governor Sandoval signed the bill in Las Vegas. The plan is to use $750 million in public money to bring an NFL team to Las Vegas.
Mark Davis, who owns the Raiders has pledged $500 million toward the building of the stadium. He can't request relocation from the NFL owners until January 15th. The new stadium could also be the new home for UNLV.
A Clark County room tax will fund the Public portion (about $1.50/day for a strip hotel).
There may not be an NFL team yet in Las Vegas, but it is one of the best places to follow your favorite team with like-minded fans. There is a bar or establishment for about every team in the NFL where you can go and cheer on your favorite team.

An Afternoon of Big Band Music will be Dedicated to our Friend... LLOYD THROWER.
He was our debonaire "Jazz Man About Town".
Lloyd passed away July 31, 2016 a week shy of his 90th Birthday. Lloyd loved the Jazz scene and especially the Jimmy Wilkins Orchestra. They will honor him this Saturday by playing some of his favorite requests. Lloyd was from Detroit Michigan. He was always immaculately attired, usually in his white or grey suit coordinated with a crisp dress shirt, tie, cuff links and diamond rings, hat at a rakish angle. He was one classy guy and will be sorely missed. R.I.P. We hope everyone that knew Lloyd will help us honor our jazzy friend this Saturday.
JIMMY WILKINS "NEW LIFE ORCHESTRA"
SATURDAY, SEPT 3RD - 1:00-4:00 PM
$15.00 at the door
Doors open at noon
Designed to evoke a sexy, fetish-oriented environment, the Provocateur Penthouse sets the stage for guests to play out their most intimate fantasies. Upon entering the 2,184 square foot two bedroom, two and a half bath space, silhouettes of naked women in the shower react and sway to entering guests’ movements. Beyond the foyer, claret red and shiny black decorative accents complement the custom-made furniture and dominatrix accessories throughout the penthouse. Using a mix of supple and smooth, tough and shiny textures, the Mark Zeff-designed penthouse indulges guests in provocative pleasure.
In the master bedroom, Obscura Digital implemented a 3-projector system that brings playtime to life. At the flip of a switch, shades come down, lights dim, and two beautiful women are projected onto the bed, writhing wantonly. Synchronized on the wall behind the bed is more video projection, rotating through four exotic themes such as “Bubbles” and “Vanity.” Obscura’s proprietary FireFrames™ system runs the reactive projections in the foyer and the bedroom, keeping the penthouse alive and fanciful.
Provocateur features state-of-the-art technology, a private balcony with a heated plunge pool, and a secret vault full of toys, equipment, costumes and more to appease any guests’ curiosity.
This honor establishes the record for the most Master Sommeliers at a single property anywhere in the world. Home to a record 18 sommeliers, four of whom are female, Bellagio has become a place where aspiring sommeliers become masters. There are 1,600 bottles on Bellagio’s master wine list and 5,250 bottles property-wide. There are 250 wines offered by the glass at Bellagio, with an average of 20 wines by the glass offered in each fine dining room.
Considered the highest honor among wine professionals, the title of Master Sommelier recognizes the utmost level of wine and spirits knowledge. Three levels of training must be completed before pursuing the Master Sommelier diploma: Introductory Sommelier, Certified Sommelier and Advanced Sommelier. Upon completion of these courses, candidates are required to pass a rigorous 3-part exam, testing the extent of their knowledge. The test consists of written exams, service exams as well as blind tastings.
...is a haunting exploration deep inside the inventive mind of mystifier Criss Angel as he hovers between the land of the living and a surreal world uniquely woven together by the distinctive imaginations of Criss Angel and Cirque du Soleil. Unlike traditional magic-themed shows, CRISS ANGEL Believe™ transcends any preconceived notion of what it means to be emotionally engaged by the arts of mysticism and illusion. Imagine a fantasy, an allegory, a highly theatrical tableau of mood, reverie and emotion set against a backdrop of dreamlike darkness and light.
Criss Angel stars as a surreal, enigmatic Victorian Noble. Along a path of imaginative exploration, he encounters Kayala and Crimson, two women who represent different aspects of femininity, four bizarre Ushers, who will introduce the audience to the baroque theater of Criss’s mind and a high-energy troupe of characters and dancers who mix a multitude of styles into a high-energy visual feast, punctuated by moments of grace and sensuality.
The stunning illusions in CRISS ANGEL Believe™ is not presented as standalone elements, but as interdependent components using heightened imagery, fantastical creatures and impossible feats of legerdemain, all of which will be integrated into the dazzling, colorful fabric of the story.
WEAR YOUR HEART ON A STRING AND SUPPORT THE NEVADA CHILDHOOD CANCER FOUNDATION
The Bravery Heart Necklace is handmade of multi-colored glass beads and sold to support the Profiles of Courage Beads program.
WHAT IS THE BEAD PROGRAM?
This hands-on creative activity is designed to document the journey children take when they are diagnosed with cancer or other life-threatening illnesses.
The bead program provides an opportunity for children to tell their story using colorful beads as meaningful symbols of the many steps taken throughout their course of treatment.
They acknowledge the courage displayed by each and every child during this challenging journey. The commemorative necklace symbolizes their strength and achievements.
HOW DOES THE BEAD PROGRAM WORK?
The Profiles of Courage Beads program is offered to each child at the time of diagnosis or anytime during their treatment.
Children undergoing treatment who wish to participate are given a length of cord with beads that spell their first name.
Special beads, each representing a different aspect of treatment, are available to add to the necklace during hospital and clinic visits.
Children may collect a bead for any procedure listed on the legend that they experience to add to the necklace.
Siblings are affected by the illness of their brother or sister and have the opportunity to collect beads symbolizing their journey with their ill sibling.
