Vital Vegas Podcast
Ep. 8 - Microcosm of Life
Released: Mar 27, 2016
Oh, yes, it's episode eight of the Vital Vegas Podcast. Miracles happen!
This week, we share a recent downtown gambling streak that included a $1,000 Wheel of Fortune jackpot. Keeping the dream alive, baby.
This week's "Listicle of the Week" is "10 Things We Flippin' Love About Las Vegas." Not only that, in this week's episode, we invented the "nested listicle," which we'd trademark if we weren't so very, very busy.
We learn more about the scorpion shot at Nacho Daddy, too, straight from one of the restaurant's bartenders, Courtney.
The Vegas lovefest continues with a breakdown of the sad end to the High Roller sex arrest story, a "Real World: Go Big or Go Home" update, scoop about Jan Rouven, the closure of Ku Noodle at SLS Las Vegas, Wayne Newton's new show and more.
In our "This Week in Las Vegas History" segment, yes, we have segments, we talk about how world-class whackjob Howard Hughes purchased the Desert Inn on March 27, 1967.
We also answer a listener question about Fremont casino's Filament Bar, the bar with the biggest pewter bar top in the world.
Don't miss this installment of the Vital Vegas Podcast! It's our most heartfelt and awkward episode yet.
