Hot off the presses! Or whatever analogy works for the Interwebs. There’s a new club in town, and it’s all about Parrotheads, the die-hard legions of Jimmy Buffett fans. You can be one of the first to join the Las Vegas Parrothead Club on Meet Up. Las Vegas is, of course, a mecca for Parrotheads…..
Las Vegas headliners Donny & Marie are again taking their rightful place on the western (we’re 25% sure it’s western, anyway) side of Flamingo Vegas. This photo is a mere 41 minutes old, and the building wrap at the Flamingo looks like it’s just a day or two from completion. Yes, since you’re asking, we….

Let it be said up front, this blog is politically neutral. (Closer to apathetic, but let’s not split hairs.) However, a celebrity is a celebrity. The other night, cruising on Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas, we caught mayoral candidate Carolyn Goodman taping a campaign ad. Naturally, we flashed our camera, and Mrs. Goodman (wife….
