Gaming regulations and state law require that gaming licensees — it’s a privilege license — comply with all state and federal laws. And until the federal government takes a different view of recreational marijuana, there is no way to reconcile marijuana use and gaming licenses.
In this kind of hyperpartisan environment, it’s not surprising that someone would promote the existence of “alternative facts,” even though that idea is preposterous. We know the Earth is not flat. We know who won the popular vote last year. Those are verifiable facts.
It’s not like I set out to provoke. It’s accidental, it’s almost a joke at this point. I don’t know what’s going to make people upset. I just try to tell a story I think is funny, and sometimes it doesn’t really go that way ...
I think before The Killers, Las Vegas was widely seen as a place for older “entertainers” with antiquated charm to semi-gracefully watch their curtains close. Nobody thought of it as any kind of creative breeding ground. It’s nice to be a part of the change.
It’s funny, I don’t particularly see us as tackling social issues outright. I choose plays that sort of create a dialogue. I don’t — and this runs counter to what I think a lot of people think I would say — particularly like activism in the work itself.
Giada De Laurentiis’ self-named restaurant in the Cromwell will be joined by her second operation, Pronto, at Caesars Palace in late January, right around the time she’ll receive her Woman of the Year award from Nevada Ballet Theatre.
People sometimes forget that Culinary workers on the Strip are part of a whole ecosystem that’s plugged into the middle class of the entire city. If you have good wages, people spend their money. If you have a good job, and your job is secure, you say, “I’m gonna buy a house..."
Our local history is so powerful when it comes to a sense of how you attach yourself to the city. If you just take your time to learn about the culture and history here — to learn about the Jewish influence on the community, the African-American influence, the mob influence, all of this that makes up Las Vegas...
We sit down to talk with Joshua Abbey about the Las Vegas Jewish Film Festival on the same morning that President Trump officially recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. This is purely coincidental, but not even slightly beside the point.
A holiday with family offers hope to inmates — and reminds them of what’s waiting for them outside. For the first time in three years, 30-year-old Krisse Thompson watches her children unwrap dozens of presents.
Sometimes it’s the little things that thwart the fitness resolutions we make at the start of a new year. Perhaps all you need to persevere is that last bit of gear — an item or two that keeps you on track, adds new functionality, or simply makes your routine a little more enjoyable.
The Future of the Mind, Michio Kaku - Assuming the mind has a future, this fella — who comes bearing a boatload of scientific honors and a shelf of best-selling science books — is better positioned than almost anyone to say what it is.
From street tacos to fajitas, Mexican food-loving herbivores have more fresh options. Southern Nevada’s vegan food scene isn’t the barren wasteland it was five years ago — more and more restaurants are responding to the demands of those, like me, who opt out of meat and dairy.
Yes, I can (*twitch*) totally handle (*shudder*) a whole week (ack!) of digital detox. I am, in the parlance of the kids these days, an Old. In practical terms, that means I remember a time before the internet, before we all decided that leaving each other indignant Facebook comments or fooling our friends with carefully curated vacation pictures would be our primary mode of communication.
A hot tea cocktail might strike you as gimmicky, but one sip of The Secret Garden will cure you of that idea: It’s like a steamy, lemon-gingery hug for your face, nose, throat and other possible winter-afflicted face-cavities.
I don’t recall precisely when I first heard the acronym NIMBY, but I do recall what I initially thought of it: Not in my back yard? How silly. How … unprogressive. Then the years flew by, I became a homeowner, and someone wanted to build a storage facility on the empty lot around the corner from my house. Oh, hell no — not in my backyard!
