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.

We recently spent some time getting to know the man behind the show… and we “be thinkin” he’s pretty COOL…
We just couldn’t squeeze everything in the first segment. So, here’s a little more with “The New Mr. Las Vegas.”
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.
