It’s no secret big Hollywood studios like a sure bet, and there’s no shortage of predictable movies to prove it.
Which is probably why Nicolas Cage left Los Angeles for Las Vegas a long time ago. At 59, the Academy Award winner owns one of the most eclectic lists of film credits in the business.
He’s been at it for more than 40 years – pivoting from leading man to action-hero to a slew of lesser features and back again. But we learned, behind that kaleidoscope of characters is a unique imagination and an encyclopedic knowledge of film… that seems to motivate everything Nicolas Cage does… his work, his life, and even this.
Seventy years after the neon cowboy, Vegas Vic, first started waving his neon thumb over visitors’ heads in downtown Las Vegas, the family that still owns his trademark has opened a jazz lounge in his name.
In opening Vic’s, the father-son duo of Paul and Chris Lowden are adding one more offering to downtown’s cultural epicenter, in the form of a vibey lounge for watching live performances over Italian food.
Located inside Symphony Park and next to the Smith Center of Performing Arts and the Discovery Children’s Museum, Vic’s is a single-story venue with a bar, sports lounge, and main dining room for taking in live music over dinner.
Designed for live jazz and blues, the main dining room is built to scatter and absorb sound. The tables are lightly padded to reduce the clatter of plates and silverware and they fan out away from the stage, providing a view of the action to every seat, booth, and setee.
SUPER BOWL –Las Vegas is set to host Super Bowl 58.
By Jordan Mendoza, USA TODAY, February 13, 2023
Who’s ready for next season?
As the Kansas City Chiefs continue to celebrate their 34-31 win over Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LVII, football fans are already looking forward to next season and the chance to play for a championship in Super Bowl 58.
But where will the 32 NFL teams be vying to play at the end of the 2023 NFL season? The teams that do make it to the title game next year will not only be part of Super Bowl stadium history, but will be playing the game in a new city and state.
In Vegas, brunch is as important a part of the weekend’s entertainment as the day clubs, shows, hotels, and gambling. And finding the best breakfast in Las Vegas serves a couple of important functions: You can regard it as a recuperative treatment for the prior night’s hijinks, or a head start into whatever you’re getting up to later in the day. Either way, the best brunches contain both the important elements of great food, of course, and great people watching. Add in a boozy element or rosé-all-day menu add-on, and you’ve reached the Vegas brunch trifecta.
The LVCVA [Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority] Archive has nearly 7 million images, 11,000 pieces of film and video, and 1,300-linear-feet of manuscripts and artifacts.
The largest collection in the LVCVA Archive is the Las Vegas News Bureau Collection, which is celebrating its 75th anniversary in 2022.
As we continue the celebration throughout the year, we will reveal new photo collections that showcase the destination’s rich history. We encourage you to download your favorite images and share them on social media, use them as a Zoom background, or save them as your personal Las Vegas history keepsake.
