Vital Vegas Podcast, Ep. 40: News, Rumors and an Ass-Ton of Las Vegas Culture

This week’s Vital Vegas Podcast is brimming with culture, like it or not.

We talk about a couple of excellent Las Vegas shows, “Baz” at Palazzo and “Le Reve” at Wynn Las Vegas, as well as the opening of two Chick-fil-A restaurants in Las Vegas.

Hey, one person’s culture is another’s fried chicken sandwich and waffle fries.

“Le Reve” is French for “wrinkly toes and fingertips.” Probably.

We also drop some knowledge about Las Vegas history (on Jan. 27, 1951, the Nevada Test Site conducted its first nuclear weapons test) and share tips for choosing a Las Vegas hotel room based upon how conducive it is to sex.

We’ve also got a fair amount of celebrity sightings (Jay Leno and Brad Garrett on Fremont Street) and celebrity gossip (magician Matt Franco left the stage during his show at Linq hotel to demand the music volume at 3535 Bar be turned down).

Jay Leno Brad Garrett
Jay Leno and Brad Garrett hit Fremont Street to tape an episode of CNBC’s “Jay Leno’s Garage.”

Also in the mix is a dazzling array of perfunctory news, including Rumor becoming Serene, a $20 million makeover at Hooters, the debut of Lyft Premiere in Sin City and the $188 million lottery jackpot won at the Nevada state line.

Stuff some Vegas into your seemingly insatiable earholes, already.
