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.
The reopening of The Buffet at Bellagio is a bellwether of better times ahead for Sin City.

Many cities are identified with an iconic food.
Philadelphia has its cheesesteaks, New York has pizza, New Orleans has po-boys, Baltimore has crab cakes.
Las Vegas has all of them, because Vegas means a buffet. “I think it’s about having a sense of indulgence and having everything. All of the choices are there for you but you don’t really have to make a decision,” says Wes Holton, executive chef at Bellagio Las Vegas, “I think that kind of sums up Vegas and what people expect when they come to Vegas.”
Huge solar arrays, electric transportation, and recycled masks are all playing a part.

Las Vegas—arguably America’s capital of consumption—is gradually getting more sustainable. The latest milestone: A 100-megawatt solar array that can deliver up to 90 percent of daytime power to 13 Las Vegas resort properties, including Bellagio and Park MGM.
The “Mega Solar Array” was unveiled earlier this month and is sending all its power to casino operator MGM Resorts, which has exclusive rights to its energy for the next 20 years. It’s a really big deal, both literally and figuratively.
As of this writing, it’s the largest solar array anywhere in the world.
Baby Boomers are the wealthiest generation of Americans alive today, and while some may no longer be active in the housing market, plenty are still looking to buy homes.
But where are Baby Boomers looking to buy? To answer this question, LendingTree analyzed mortgage purchase requests made in 2020 on the LendingTree platform across the nation’s 50 largest metropolitan areas.
Las Vegas, Tampa and Phoenix are the metros where Baby Boomers make up the largest share of mortgage purchase requests. In Las Vegas, 19.97% of purchase requests came from Baby Boomers. In Tampa and Phoenix, the numbers are 17.33% and 16.36%, respectively.
