The Regency Tropicana Cinemas

“At the intersection of Tropicana Avenue and Pecos Road, there is a Goodwill store, the Thai Room restaurant and a movie theater where tickets are never more than $3.50. I could kill an entire day by myself in this area.” –Shannon Miller, editorial assistant

“Red Rock National Conservation Area. There have been times when I’ve gotten geographically lost, but I’m more often lost in thought, looking at the birds and wildflowers, lizards and landscapes.” –Jessie O’Brien, DTLV.com editor

“Downtown. I can spend hours looking at art, eating great food, listening to good music and getting yelled at by drunk people.” –Ryan Vellinga, editorial intern

“99 Ranch Market in Chinatown. The smells, so foreign and pungent, stimulate the senses like nothing else. You’ll find condiments or dry goods so exotic you won’t have the first clue how to use them, but you buy them anyway. And watching little Asian ladies navigate the aisles—so single-minded in their pursuit of that bunch of basil or this specific type of curry—is pure sport.” –Genevie Durano, managing editor/dining

“If you’re me, IKEA. Or, in a pinch, The Container Store. Or REI.” –Xania Woodman, senior contributing editor, beverage

“In the immortal words of Joan Crawford: ‘Any dark bar.’” –Lissa Townsend Rodgers, editor at large

“When I went to UNLV, I used to spend long breaks between classes at the Clark County Library. There’s always an event happening, and it features a great selection of graphic novels. Plus, the bona fide peace you feel is unmatchable—going there is pure joy.” –Amber Sampson, web editor
