Sure, the pools will stay open for another month or so, and the temperature won’t dip in any meaningful way for at least another three weeks. But the end is nigh. Read More



Not-So-Fabulous Las Vegas

There have been worse weeks in the world of Las Vegas entertainment and sports. It’s just that those ones tend to involve things like the MGM fire disrupting show schedules, or the NFL deciding once and for all that no one in the city could ever say “Super Bowl” in public ever again. Or Jeff Dunham signing a residency here. Read More
