Oh, this is a good one. The next Downtown Vegas property to get a facelift will be Fitzgeralds. While this is much needed, we're not feeling The D.
And yes, we read the news. It's a nod to the owners nickname, and his hometown Detroit. But we can't help thinking of other D words it could be short for. I'm sure the Fremont Street masses will have some fun with it as well.
The Las Vegas chapter of AAF announced this month's Brand Beers event.
This round hosted by The Glenn Group at Lady Silvia downtown. And they seem to be stepping up the level by getting some free beer kicked in, and give-aways benefitting charity.
So bring your book(s), get some beer(s), nd if you hear any gossip or tidbits we should know about while you're there, send em our way.
Who knows, maybe you'll see us there March 14th.
Check out this, we're assuming online spot (1:07), for Azure at Palazzo Las Vegas.
We appreciate that they didn't go the typical Vegas pool-skank route, but the poor drink pouring makes me a bit hesitant to go for a cocktail. Heavy pours are welcome, but we'll pass on getting showered with Apple Pucker.
This video is pretty terrible, but what it does do is highlight the public burn at this week's First Friday. Should be a raucous time down in the Arts District. With all the hullabaloo about Burning Man's ticketing fiasco it should be interesting to see how this is received.
Also, local digital agency 1010 Collective sent us this reminder for their "first First Friday event." Phone-tography. We're interested to see how the online social community of Instagram translates to real life.

What's the latest advertising/tourism "innovation" to grace Las Vegas?
We're not sure a Ferris Wheel can be considered an innovation, but this Skyvue project will definitely get people's attention.
Being at the southern-most edge of the Strip won't allow for the best view we're guessing. Regardless, everyone from passengers taking off from McCarran to every photo taken by the famous Las Vegas sign (which gets dwarfed considerably here) will have the advertisers messaging and logos on full display.
How long till the first 1-800-HOT-GIRLS placement gets put up?
That's the figure the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority has to play with in the coming year. Based on occupancy being up, thus room tax up, thus budget up, the LVCVA stands to have an increase of over $18 Million dollars.
The proposed budget will earmark an extra $5 Million to the advertising budget alone. Will most of that be headed R&R Partners way? The LVCVA's efforts have arguable been the best in the nation when it comes to promoting a destination. Hopefully they can bolster their efforts and keep the increase in visitation growing to new levels.
