If you’re looking for somewhere cool to take the family as we head towards summer, let us tell you what's new at the Las Vegas Zoo. These guys partner with the San Diego Zoo to bring in rare and unique animals. But, one of the coolest things about our local zoo is that these animals are not so far away that you need binoculars to see them. Some of them are close up enough to reach out and touch.
The House of Blues Foundation Room is located on the 43rd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino and offers what many consider the very best view of the Las Vegas Strip. But what is super cool about this hot spot is its dedication to supporting the education of children through music, art and history.
Two fabulous local gals have launched a new product line called “Working Girls”. These “Working Girls” are all about being smart and sassy, fun and classy.
You can find their fun drawings and tag lines on anything from wine glasses to bev naps to key chains… and are available at local stores around the Valley.
We spent the day with the creators to learn more about this labor of love….
Just 45 minutes outside Las Vegas is a piece of history dating back well over 100 years. The folks at Eldorado Canyon Mine Tours discovered an old gold and silver mine entrance…and 16 years later, they’re showing people what it was like to work those mines. If that’s not enough to entice you, they’ll hook a canoe or kayak up to your vehicle and you can spend a relaxing day on the Colorado River at the mouth of Black Canyon.
This hidden gem is the pearl of Palace Station. The Oyster Bar is live action cooking in your face. In a city full of big casinos and big restaurants, the chefs and servers at this quaint 18 seat bar give you a friendly, personal touch you won’t find anywhere else on the strip.
Oyster Bar is first come first serve, and if the line is any indication, it is always worth the wait. This cross between San Francisco and New Orleans may just be the best kept secret in Las Vegas, but not for long…
There’s a small group of folks making a BIG impact in the Las Vegas community… one smile at a time. The volunteers of Toys for Smiles spend their days making toy cars and trucks out of donated scrap wood to distribute to kids in need all across the valley. And with a brand new wood shop, Toys for Smiles…which very much resembles Santa’s workshop…has big plans for the future…
