We’ve told you how electric fight weekends are, so book now even if you aren’t planning to attend. Nothing brings celebrities from all over the world into Las Vegas like a heavyweight fight. Fight story at http://www.lvrj.com/lvrj_home/1999/Aug-28-Sat-1999/sports/11842275.html

FOOTBALL IN LAS VEGAS

 

Full story on John Robinson at http://www.lvlife.com/aug1999/features/story01.html

SWING CAT BLUES – is the new high tech answer to the former low tech shows of the Fremont St. Experience downtown. In this animated tale about hip blues cats making it big in Vegas, hijinx abound on Route 66 as these cats follow their dream on their way to win a recording contract. Discount downtown rooms are available at http://www.accessvegas.com/las-vegas-hotels-downtown.htm and we are giving away a pair of limited edition Swing Cat Blues sunglasses in our contest section.

KING OF THE BEACH – See the top 14 men and 4 women from the AVP tour compete at the Hard Rock Hotel Sept. 17-19. Tickets for this popular event at (702) 474-4000 and Hard Rock discount rooms are available at http://www.accessvegas.com/rooms/las-vegas-hotel-reservations-strip-area.htm (Hard Rock link).

PAY BACK THAT MARKER – if you take out a marker at a Las Vegas casino, it’s very wise to pay it back. No, they no longer send really big guys to break various body parts. But unpaid markers are prosecuted as bad checks in Nevada, and you can find yourself with a free trip back here to stand trial. Full story at http://www.lvrj.com/lvrj_home/1999/Sep-05-Sun-1999/news/11884553.html

MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL CIGAR SMOKER – Hamilton’s (at New York, New York) hosts this weekly event. Seating is limited, and $35 gets you a prime rib buffet, liquor flights, and two cigars. Reservations suggested at (702) 740-6400.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR:

ShowVegas at http://www.showvegas.com/svpricing.cfm?cscheme=5&amid=143 is a new partner of ours. They come highly recommended, and can get you tickets which might already be sold out by the time you get here. However, as with any advertising partner, we want your feedback. We just dumped Prodigy Internet from our partner base because we found out that they weren’t getting the introductory CD’s out to those who requested them. If our advertisers can’t deliver, they are history. Your trust is far more valuable to us than an extra dollar from a poor company.
