Why not make live entertainment a part of everyone’s life?

Does nightlife happen way past your bedtime? Do you read the A&E section of this magazine as a form of vicarious living? Rise up, midlife suburbanites, it’s your Vegas, too! We’ve got families, and we can’t be out all hours of the night roaming the mean streets of downtown. So let’s bring downtown to us: Suburban dinner theater! Vaudeville in Summerlin! Live music at 5:30 p.m. over pasta in Henderson! That’s right, Las Vegas, we refuse to put the remainder of our entertainment lives in the hands of Cox Cable. We want big-city nightlife, too, just not in the big city. And not at night.
