Vital Vegas Podcast, Ep. 32: Foodie Tour, Beauty & Essex and News So Thick It’ll Tear Your Eustachian Tube

When they invented podcasting, they could never have envisioned this. Or else they’d have thought twice about inventing podcasting. In case that wasn’t clear.

It’s the Vital Vegas Podcast, of course, and in this episode, we croon and ramble and dole out scoop like nobody’s business.

We talk Evel Pie, Beauty & Essex and “Band of Magicians” (a forgettable show at Tropicana) for starters, and share the reason some high rollers ask for two comped rooms in the same hotel, but on different floors. There will be blushing.

Beauty & Essex
Beauty & Essex at Cosmopolitan is cleverly disguised as a pawn shop. Just about everything is for sale, too.

We chat with Donald Contursi, President of Lip Smacking Foodie Tours, a great way to explore some of the best restaurants downtown and on The Strip. Lip Smacking Foodie Tours recently snagged “Best Las Vegas Tour” in the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s “Best of Las Vegas” honors.

Lip Smacking Foodie Tour
Yes, it’s a “foodie” tour, but one does not live by food alone. This panty-dropper cocktail from Therapy concurs.

Naturally, we round up all the latest Las Vegas news. It’s the law.

In “This Week in Las Vegas History,” we remember the Kefauver hearings, which started Nov. 15, 1950. We also, finally, figure out how to pronounce “Kefauver.”

Our “Listicle of the Week” is “10 Things That Feel Different in Las Vegas.”

Lastly, we break down how to play one of our favorite slot machines, Top Dollar.

So, take a listen to the magnificent mess that is the Vital Vegas Podcast, named one of the top podcasts of 2016 by A Gentlemans Word.
