  • Martha Stewart Radio Show from the M
    Here’s another example of the free, fun, frivolous things you can find to do on a Thursday morning in Las Vegas.

A sample of the M’s sous chef’s braised pork ribs, nibbles of cupcakes from...

  • The M beer bar best in Vegas
    I’m going to change my mind about the 32º Draft beer bar at the M Resort Casino Spa, Las Vegas.  I wasn’t enthusiastic about it on my first visit because I didn’t like its location next to the Sports Betting area, in earshot of a cacophony of slot machines. But on the second visit, in the late afternoon, we sat at the bar and began sampling...

  • Blue Martini is local hot spot in Vegas
    Wednesday night and the Blue Martini is jammed.  What would it be like if there were no recession?  It’s refreshing to see high heels, sexy dresses and crisp shirts.  You get so tired of the slobby tourists on the Strip with their shorts, sloppy T-shirts and sandals.  This is Las Vegas, for *** sakes! The Blue Martini, across from the Rave Movie Experience,...

  • Frontier Implosion 11-13-07
    Sometime after 2am just off the strip, with sliding doors cracked to let in the cool desert night air, the still of the night was shattered by the sounds of deep rumbling. Like a giant Harley revving its powerful engine, reverberating vibrations stirred us from heavy sleep. Luckily we weren’t so lazy we pulled the covers and pillows over our heads, but let curiosity...

  • “JJ” for Just Jazz
    “Just Jazz” realizes Mark’s vision of every night live jazz for Las Vegas. “JJ’s” is patterned after the wildly successful Just Jazz Night Club of Philadelphia in the 60′s which showcased names like Louis Armstrong, Buddy Rich and Gene Krupa. We can hope for a rebirth of that fire here on East Sahara Ave. The hours now are 24 hr/7...

  • Menopause without pause
    I thought I was the last woman over 50 in Las Vegas to see Menopause, the laugh-out-loud Broadway Musical Comedy that parodies the dreaded Change of Life awaiting half of the world’s population. But judging by the packed house at Shimmer Cabaret at the Hilton, there are still quite a few of us left to savor hearing the woes of our sweat and tears playfully bantered...
