Ep. 61 - Vegas Cheating

It's time to talk Vegas! No, really, it's right there in the name of the show. So much to talk about, too. We were on KNPR, so you're going to hear some of that interview. Then, we delve into tons of Las Vegas and a listicle of the week (learn more about dice security measures than you ever wanted to know). We chat with an actual woman, and Genaro of Carlos'n Charlie's fame. It's a rolicking good time, if that's a thing.

Ep. 59 - Pre-Lubricated

We have no memory of what we talked about in this episode, but we trust it was fascinating. We do vaguely recall chatting with the Director of Slots at Binion's, as well as sharing skinny about Fontainebleau being sold, rumorwise. We've got a review of "Circus 1903" and other ramblings you won't want to miss. Oh, and we dive headlong into a cannabis sampler box. No, really.

Ep. 52 - Comp This

How much Vegas can a single podcast episode hold? This much. First, we talk to Albert Tabola of Ardent Progressive Systems & Games. He's got the latest on comp drink validation systems and a new machine set to give Sigma Derby a run for its money. We also get the latest from Derek Stevens (owner of The D and Golden Gate) about the upcoming demolition of a full block on Fremont Street. It's all the latest news from the city that never sleeps, although it nods off a lot after drinking too damned much.

Ep. 54 - Old Timers

It's our birthday, so we're damned well going to do whatever the hell we want! First up, it's a lively run-down of everything we've been up to in Las Vegas. Then we've got an interview with an owner of a new downtown restaurant, Two Bald Brothers. There's the usual news, a listicle of the week (about things for old people to do in Las Vegas) and we also read from a book, "Blood Aces." It's fun for all ages! Actual results may vary.

Ep. 78 - Passion Project

In this episode, it's wall-to-wall Vegas and ceiling-to-floor scoop! Or something. For starters, we chat exclusively with Derek Stevens, owner of The D and Golden Gate casinos, about his new resort at 18 Fremont. We also drop some skinny about a potential sale of Cosmopolitan to Hard Rock International, as well as rumors about the buyer of Mandarin Oriental. All that and probably a listicle of some sort. Just listen, already.

Ep. 63 - Lost Vegas

This isn't what we ever intended this podcast to be. It's about something horrific that's shocked Las Vegas and the world. This episode is OK to skip. We'll be back to the usual dog and pony show soon.

Ep. 69 - Dinner for Two

It's a metric ass-ton of Vegas, baby! We rattle off 69 exclusives, then at minute 69, we share an interview with the general manager of Lyft Las Vegas who recently turned 69. Then we dive into this week's listicle, "69 Fun Facts About Roulette." Later, we get a first-person review of "Magic Mike," the 69th show to open on the Las Vegas Strip since 1969. Look, just listen and keep a bucket of cold water nearby.
