13 things to be thankful for in Las Vegas

With Thanksgiving on the horizon, we wanted to highlight some of our favorite things about Las Vegas. Here they are in no particular order:

We’re the most fun city in the U.S.

This one comes as no surprise. Thanks to its vibrate nightlife and party scene, along with other entertainment and recreation options, Las Vegas beat out 149 other cities to top WalletHub’s list of the most fun cities in America.

Our state is great for women’s equality

Nevada ranks first in “workplace environment” and “political empowerment,” which helped the Silver State earn the number two spot on the list of best states for women’s equality. (Hawaii topped Nevada largely because of its “education and health” rank.)

We’re one of the best big cities to live in

Las Vegas ranks third in “quality of life” compared to 62 other big cities. That includes factors like average number of hours worked per week, commute time, number of parks/playgrounds, number of bars and coffee shops, etc. We were also ranked 8th overall as the best city in the U.S. to live in, according to WalletHub. Not too shabby!

Gamers love it here

Those who play video games have plenty of choices to get their fix in Sin City. We have more video game stores per capita than any other city, and we’re also tied with Orlando, Florida for the most arcades per capita. Overall, Las Vegas ranks seventh on WalletHub’s list of best cities for gamers.

Holidays are more fun in Las Vegas

The sheer number of attractions, restaurants, parties, and more puts Las Vegas over-the-top when it comes to celebrating the holidays. We’re ranked sixth overall on the list of best cities for Valentine’s Day, fourth when it comes to Halloween, and 14th for Easter celebrations.

Life is good for our seniors

Compared to 150 cities across the U.S., Las Vegas ranks tenth for the best places to retire. According to WalletHub, our city’s best qualities are “affordability” (factors like taxpayer-friendliness and adjusted cost of living) and “activities” (including senior centers, golf courses, bingo halls, volunteer opportunities and more).

Early Success For Vegas Golden Knights Could Impede Long-Term Franchise Goals

Carol Schram , CONTRIBUTOR

The Vegas Golden Knights: for real, or a desert mirage?

The NHL’s first expansion team in 17 years has been virtually unbeatable, amassing an 8-1-0 record heading into Monday night’s game. Rolling as well as they are, players are admitting that they can imagine their team in the Stanley Cup playoff mix in the spring.

“Yeah,” alternate captain Luca Sbisa told Nicholas J. Cotsonika of NHL.com on Friday, after the Golden Knights wrapped up their seven-game homestand with a 7-0 shutout of the Colorado Avalanche. “Hundred percent. ”

Born in Italy, raised in Switzerland and acquired in the expansion draft from the Vancouver Canucks, Sbisa perhaps hasn’t lived in Vegas long enough to know that there are no sure things in Sin City. But based on history, the Golden Knights’ playoff odds are indeed very good.

With 16 of a possible 18 points already in the bank, Vegas has claimed 88.9% of its available points so far, tops in the league. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, per Cotsonika, only two teams in NHL history have ever earned 16 points in their first nine games but missed the playoffs — the 1986-87 Pittsburgh Penguins and the 2015-16 Montreal Canadiens.

That Canadiens team won nine straight before their starting goaltender Carey Price was lost to them with an injury for most of the season, but a similar misfortune hasn’t slowed the Golden Knights. Marc-Andre Fleury suffered a concussion in Vegas’ fourth game of the season, the team’s only loss to date. Remarkably, Fleury has been ably replaced so far by unproven greenhorns Malcolm Subban (five career NHL games played, now also injured) and Oscar Dansk (three career NHL games played, currently leads all goalies with one or more games played with .959 save percentage and 1.35 goals-against average).

Injury issues aside, the Golden Knights came into the season with a leg up over past expansion teams thanks to more favourable rules for building their inaugural roster. Their first-month schedule was also team-friendly. The 18-day homestand not only allowed for plenty of practice and team-building opportunities, it also seemed to give the hosts an edge as visiting clubs navigated the bright lights of the Las Vegas Strip for the first time in a business setting — leading to an outbreak of what is being dubbed the “Vegas Flu” by observers like local blogger Jason Pother of The Sin Bin.

A winning culture in a non-traditional hockey market helps to build buzz, sell jerseys and incubate a local supporters’ group to go up against the strong travelling fanbases from cities like Boston and Chicago that have already made their presences seen and heard at T-Mobile Arena.

But are the Golden Knights running the risk of being too good?

Based on past history, owner Bill Foley was looking at a best-case scenario when he suggested back in 2015 that his team could reach the postseason in three years.

Consider the last nine teams to join the NHL:

NHL Expansion Team Inaugural Season Years to Make Playoffs
Columbus Blue Jackets 2000-01 8
Minnesota Wild 2000-01 3
Atlanta Thrashers 1999-2000 7
Nashville Predators 1998-99 6
Florida Panthers 1993-94 3
Mighty Ducks of Anaheim 1993-94 4
Ottawa Senators 1992-93 5
Tampa Bay Lightning 1992-93 4
San Jose Sharks 1991-92 3

Of those nine teams, the only ones to win a Stanley Cup so far have been the Tampa Bay Lightning (2003-04, their 12th season) and the renamed Anaheim Ducks (2006-07, their 13th season).

10 Must-See Las Vegas Attractions That Have Nothing to Do with Gambling

If roulette makes you dizzy and losing money leaves you queasy, don’t worry: Las Vegas has more to offer than eye-popping casinos and opulent floor shows

BY RUDIE OBIAS

National Atomic Testing Museum

If you think you know what an atomic explosion sounds like, you might want to read this. And then plan a trip to the National Atomic Testing Museum, which features artifacts and exhibits dedicated to nuclear testing at the Nevada Test Site, located just north of Las Vegas during the 1950s. The museum—which became part of the Smithsonian Institution in 2011—also features a Ground Zero Theater that shows guests what it feels like to watch a nuclear test. There’s also an exhibit about the infamous Area 51.

Neon Museum and Boneyard

If you’re a fan of neon America, Las Vegas is the place for you. (You might also appreciate these top retro burger stands.) Founded in 1996, the Neon Museumfeatures old neon signs from defunct casinos and restaurants in the town’s past. The Boneyard refers to the six acres of land in which the signs are restored and put on display for the public. Some notable classics include the La Concha Motel and the Stardust Hotel and Casino.

Cirque du Soleil

Cirque du Soleil (Circus of the Sun) has been putting big smiles on spectators’ faces for more than 20 years in Vegas. Their unique brand of theatrics and acrobatics has branched off into a number of new shows, such as The Beatles LOVE, Michael Jackson ONE, and Zumanity. Cirque du Soleil even has a partnership with Criss Angel MINDFREAK, who mixes magic and wonder into one big mind-blowing theater experience.

Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition

For people who can’t get enough about this tragic piece of history, check out these 13 little-known facts about the Titanic and then plan a trip to Vegas. Located inside of the Luxor Hotel & Casino, the Titanic: The Artifact Exhibitionshowcases the complete journey of the RMS Titanic from construction to sinking to recovery. On display are actual artifacts recovered from the “unsinkable” ship, such as floor tiles from the first-class smoking room, passengers’ luggage, a window frame from the Verandah Cafe, the ship’s whistles, and an unopened bottle of champagne from 1900. There are even some full scale re-creations like the “Grand Staircase” that might make you feel like you are on the former luxury ship liner itself, or on-set of the James Cameron movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.

Mexican Independence Day: Las Vegas will be brimming with revelers

Monday, Sept. 11, 2017 | 2 a.m.

It’s easy to overlook what this weekend’s Mexican Independence Day actually means with more than a dozen A-list Spanish-speaking Latino music acts and even more fiestas set to hit the Las Vegas valley for the holiday.

Contrary to popular belief, Mexico did not gain its independence on Cinco de Mayo, or May 5. Instead, the country celebrates the occasion Sept. 16, honoring the day in 1810 that Father Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla rang the bells of his church in the small town of Dolores, Guanajuato, as a rallying cry for Mexican troops.

The Cry of Dolores, known colloquially as “El Grito,” began an 11-year war with Spain that eventually resulted in the European nation recognizing Mexico as its own country in August 1821.

“It’s a day of celebration for people in Mexico, the U.S. and Mexicans across the world,” said Peter Guzman, president of the Latin Chamber of Commerce.

In Mexico, celebrants convene annually before midnight in their communities’ main squares, where elected officials or leaders repeat Hidalgo’s “grito” (shout), for freedom. At sunrise, military and civic parades begin a day of celebration with fireworks, food and music.

The Cinco de Mayo holiday celebrates the Mexican army’s victory over Napoleon III’s French army on May 5, 1862, at the Battle of Puebla. Though that battle only temporarily held off French forces who later took over Mexico City, the win was unifying because Mexican forces were outnumbered 2-to-1 by the world’s strongest army.


Even more to celebrate

The Sept. 16 holiday falls just one day after Central American countries El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica also celebrate the anniversary of their declared independence from Spain on Sept. 15, 1821. Thousands of natives from those five countries also visit Las Vegas in commemoration of the holiday, though together they do not near the number of Mexican tourists expected, said Peter Guzman, president of the Latin Chamber of Commerce. “Las Vegas represents all Hispanics, and we’re happy to welcome them all.”


While the Cinco de Mayo celebration doesn’t extend beyond a day off from work in most cities across Mexico, it’s celebrated with fervor here in the United States by people of all nationalities.

As an entertainment destination near Mexico, Las Vegas is a top spot for both holidays. The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority does not track visitation numbers specifically related to Mexican Independence Day, but last year, hotel rooms reached 98.4 percent capacity during a three-day period that included the holiday, That equates to about 146,615 of 149,000 total hotel rooms being occupied.

“It’s mind-boggling how the holiday and visitation here to Las Vegas continues to expand,” Guzman said. “But it’s as simple as we’re a friendly, safe city, and it’s a bargain to come here.”

Perhaps the biggest event of the weekend will take place at T-Mobile Arena, where renowned Mexican boxer Saúl “Canelo” Alvarez will face undefeated Gennady “GGG” Golovkin in a hyped middleweight title fight estimated to bring as many as 80,000 fans to Las Vegas and $70 million to the local economy.

This year’s Mexican Independence Day fight comes after Alvarez chose Dallas over Las Vegas, which typically hosts a major fight on the holiday weekend. Fighting on Mexico’s Independence Day from 2013 to 2015, Floyd Mayweather Jr. grossed between $13 million and $20 million against Andre Berto, Marcos Maidana and Alvarez, according to figures reported to the Nevada Athletic Commission. (Those figures do not include earnings from pay-per-view sales.)

“We’re obviously thrilled to get it back this year,” said Bob Bennett, the commission’s executive director. “Boxing belongs in the fight capital of the world on Mexican Independence Day.”

The holiday in Las Vegas

At McCarran International Airport, 10 direct flights were added for the holiday last year from major airports in Mexico City, Guadalajara and Monterrey, for a total of 41 commercial flights from the U.S. neighbors to the south. Mexican air carriers Aeromexico, Interjet, Magnicharters and Volaris brought more than 5,200 passengers to McCarran over the course of that weekend, and similar numbers are expected this year. “Mexican Independence weekend has developed into one more attraction that persuades people to find themselves in Las Vegas,” McCarran spokesman Chris Jones said. “It’s become a nice draw for the community, and it’s always great to see extra flights added for this or any other special event.”

EDC Las Vegas moves to May in 2018, adds camping

August Brown

At Electric Daisy Carnival’s flagship Las Vegas event, the searing heat is as much a fixture as the pulsing EDM music and the spectacles of neon lights.

But a schedule change for the 2018 event may help alleviate some of the sweat.

Organizers announced Wednesday that the festival — one of the largest in North America — will move from its usual June dates up to May 18-20. Promoter Insomniac said it made the decision in part to avoid the brutal summer heat and allow for gates to open earlier in the day for the 400,000 fans who attend the fest over three days.

“We strive to make every year better than the last, and after a lot of brainstorming and feedback from our community, we have decided to move next year’s festival to May 18, 19 and 20,” Insomniac founder Pasquale Rotella said in a statement. “This way we can enjoy cooler weather, the gates can open earlier, and we can hold a very special opening ceremony each day.”

Nighttime temperatures routinely top 100 degrees at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The festival over the years has seen several drug-related deaths, and overheating and dehydration can compound the adverse effects of popular party drugs such as ecstasy.

Additionally, the festival will for the first time introduce an on-site camping option for fans (with both general admission and luxury packages) and shift shuttle operations to an independent transportation firm, in an effort to alleviate some of the famously snarled traffic to and from the venue.

Hiking in Las Vegas? These travelers bet on it

PUBLISHED: September 3, 2017 at 7:00 am | UPDATED: September 3, 2017 at 11:07 am

Behind a foreground of springtime blossoms, sunset-lit Red Rock Canyon glows and beckons hikers. (Karen Hansen Gurstelle)

On the north side of Las Vegas, an almost forgotten path winds up a steep, rocky hill. From the top, views of the runways of sprawling Nellis Air Force Base stretch to the northeast. Off to the west, there’s a view of the Las Vegas skyline and beyond to Charleston Peak. And just below, at the hill’s eastern base, is a cleft in the rock that is a rare scientific wonder known as the Great Unconformity.

The Great Unconformity is a geological rift in time and space of earth-shattering magnitude. Precambrian granite from 1.7 billion years ago juts out of the earth next to Jurassic sandstone from 500 million years ago. As unexpected as a photo of Aristotle driving a Tesla, the Great Unconformity is one of science’s most surprising propinquities, created when subterranean forces pushed rock layers past one another at a fault line, bringing together strata that have no business being near one another.

The Great Unconformity is an apt analogy for Las Vegas, where everywhere opposites abut: poverty and prosperity, water and wasteland, hubris and humility, nature and neon.

During our visit in May, we spent daytimes immersed in grand nature, clambering, hiking and driving. We spent the nights amidst glittering neon, reveling in the Old Vegas nostalgia and New Vegas haute cuisine and mixology.

 

RED ROCK CANYON

Spring daytimes in the desert are ideal for hiking along the diverse, dramatic trails available just outside the city. Ask Vegas residents about their favorite natural spot and odds are they’ll name Red Rock Canyon. A huge National Conservation Area less than an hour’s drive from the Strip, Red Rock Canyon is well interpreted and contains some of the best day hiking in the nation with so many trails it was hard to choose just one.

Luckily, we found Chandra Teeter, an experienced hike leader and park volunteer, in the visitors’ center. When we told her we had three to four hours to spend, Chandra didn’t hesitate. “Either Ice Box Canyon or the Calico Tanks would be great for you,” she said. “But Calico Tank trail will take you right up into the red rock that is the essence of this park.”

And what a hike it was. The out-and-back trail climbs 450 feet from the desert up through a colorful jumble of rock strata. Along the way, we encountered history, geology and diverse groups of international and local trekkers. The trail guide lists this trail as “moderate” in difficulty but make no mistake, this is no walk in the park and having a hiking pole is a smart move. The trail is steep in parts and sometimes disappears, requiring finding your own way across expanses of horizontal rock and some hand and footwork and a bit of butt sliding through the more vertical sections. Of course, that is precisely what makes this trail so much fun. That and the spectacular visual rewards: the surprisingly colorful mix of vegetation and rock along the way, then the mountain pond called Calico Tank near the top and finally, at the top, a sweeping view of the Las Vegas Strip far below in the distance.

 

RAILROAD TUNNEL TRAIL

Hoover Dam
Hoover Dam (Karen Hansen Gurstelle)

Compared to Red Rock trails, our nine-mile round-trip trek from Lake Mead through the high Mojave Desert to the Hoover Dam was more like a long walk in a very sunny, exposed park. What little shade there is along the way is the chief attraction of this path: the railroad tunnels.

The Railroad Tunnel Trail, starting at the visitor center for Lake Mead, takes hikers through five old railroad tunnels all the way to Hoover Dam. Long and cool and now home to screech-y bats, the tunnels were constructed in the 1930s to accommodate the delivery of materials for the dam builders. During the dam’s construction, a constant stream of gas and steam locomotives connected the project’s quarries, gravel pits and cement-mixing plants. Remote and with few users, the trail is well marked with interpretive signs explaining the historical and scientific significance of the area. It was fascinating to imagine the bustle and noise of that go-go infrastructure-building era as we took in the drama of human-made Lake Mead, Hoover Dam and the Pat Tillman Bridge, which is the widest and highest span of concrete in the Western Hemisphere.

Family, famous friends throw one last party for Jerry Lewis

September 4, 2017 – 7:08 pm
Updated September 5, 2017 – 10:29 am

Jerry Lewis liked parties. He didn’t like funerals. He loved Labor Day weekend.

The late comic legend, who died at 91 of heart failure Aug. 20 at his home in Las Vegas, was treated to a party on his favorite holiday Monday afternoon at the South Point showroom. Hosted by Tony Orlando, his longtime co-pilot for 34 years on the annual Jerry Lewis MDA Labor Day Telethon, the private celebration of life was attended by more than 400 friends and family.

Owned by Lewis’ close friend Michael Gaughan, South Point was important to the latter stages of Lewis’ career. That’s where he hosted his final MDA Telethon in 2010 and where he performed his final live shows on Sept. 20 and Oct. 1-2 in 2016.

“We lost a great one, and the country can’t afford to lose even one more laugh,” Orlando said. “The man who generated those laughs was Jerry Lewis. … We are going to miss him. Imprint, today, every laugh he ever gave you.”

Orlando nodded toward Lewis’ widow, SanDee “Sam” Lewis, and Lewis’ daughter, Danielle, referring to them as “the two lights of Jerry’s life.”

In remarks to the audience, Danielle Lewis said, “Growing up, I never realized what an incredibly lucky girl I was. We’d be in an airport and someone would come up to him and say, ‘Thank you for all you have done for the MDA! Thank you for all the laughs!’ And I’d say, ‘Dad, did you know them?’ ”

His wife said she will treasure the quiet times.

Jerry at home

“Unlike so many who knew him, my memories were not of his movies, or the MDA Telethons, but of the times when it was just us,” she said. “Making me a small glass of coffee filled with just cream and sugar so I could be just like my mommy, or having a stuffed Barney toy on his piano, always sitting there during his live shows, just so I could have a reminder that he was thinking of me.

“I remember two years ago, getting out of the car in the freezing rain in Washington, D.C., just so he could take a picture with me in front of the Lincoln Memorial.”

As she grew up, Lewis’ only daughter said, “I began to realize my father really was one of the most amazing human beings on the planet.”

Dean Martin’s daughter, Deana Martin, spoke spiritedly of her father’s partnership with Lewis, the 1946-’56 run when the Martin &Lewis team were box-office and stage superstars.

“When I was born in Manhattan, they were headlining Slapsy Maxie’s in Hollywood, and they were the No. 1 comedy team in the world,” Martin said. “Jerry later told me, ‘We found magic in a bottle,’ and they did.”

Adopting the sensibility mastered by those who participated in the Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts, Deana Martin deadpanned, “The Jerry Lewis I know was caring, loving, rarely hot-tempered (or) selfish, never egocentric, he was never difficult. In fact, he actually had the heart of a child. In a jar. On his desk.”

She continued, “I asked my Uncle Jerry, ‘Why does Daddy leave me alone when he goes with you to Las Vegas? And he said, ‘Because he likes me better than you.’ When my dad and Uncle Jerry broke up, I said, ‘Why is everyone saying Jerry would go off and be a big star and Dean would just fade away?’ And he said, ‘Because people like Jews better than Italians.’ ”

Deana Martin’s appearance was accompanied by video of the famous reunion of her father and Lewis during the 1976 Labor Day Telethon, orchestrated by mutual friend Frank Sinatra. Lewis drew a laugh that day when he asked his long-ago partner, “So, are you working?”

“That was my dear Uncle Jerry, and I loved Jerry Lewis,” Deana Martin said.

Telethon raised more than $2 billion

Where You Will Eat at the Las Vegas Raiders Stadium

 Concessions and a mystery “Peristyle Club”

Las Vegas Stadium rendering – Las Vegas Stadium

Parking, traffic control, utilities and funding are all still contentious factors under discussion for the future $1.9 billion Las Vegas Raiders stadium. But new paperwork gives a little early insight into the shape of the 10-level stadium and where fans will be able to dine and drink in June 2020.

Promoted as a multi-use stadium and events center, zoning permission has been obtained for possible parking lot scenarios for hosting farmers markets, food truck festivals and fairground midways. The currently named Las Vegas Stadium will add 65,000 seats, but provide only 2,375 on-site parking spaces, so guests will be encouraged to park elsewhere, ride-share, take shuttles or walk over a proposed 30-foot-wide pedestrian bridge linked to Las Vegas Boulevard.

The domed stadium has been designed with a Strip-facing retractable wall that opens up to the interior, a dramatic scenario for concerts, music festivals and sporting events, like UNLV Rebels football games, which will also make the stadium home base.

Most recent plans call for concessions to be created on the 394,825-square-foot “Main Concourse” and the 147,628-square-foot “Upper Concourse,” approximately 88 feet above the playing field.

The 259,444-square-foot “Upper Suite” level, approximately 52 feet above the action, will include more concessions, VIP lounges and the yet to be announced “Peristyle Club.” A concept of the same name is already in place at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, providing upscale pre- and post-game “tailgating experiences” for fans attending USC football games. While yet to be confirmed for Las Vegas, the California Peristyle Club offers a finer selection of food and drinks in a private area.
