Movable Buffet: Final entry

Wed, 04 Nov 2009 13:05:12 -0800

In a very Vegas way, I got lucky. In October 2005, I was hired by L.A. Times editors who had found my Vegas writing online. I became one of the first bloggers in the history of the L.A. Times. Vegas...(image)

Here are some final round-up notes from Fangoria's Trinity of Terrors that took place over at the Palms this weekend: Tom Atkins and Adrienne Barbeau (pictured) have appeared in a few films together over the years, including "Escape From New...(image)

Oops, I am a tourist (and it's expensive)

Sat, 31 Oct 2009 10:00:03 -0700

I am staying at the Palms this weekend (where despite covering the resort since its opening in 2001, I never spent a night before) to blog the Fangoria Trinity of Terrors. The convention did not start until late Friday afternoon,...(image)

Fright Dome: Huge haunted houses at Circus Circus

Fri, 30 Oct 2009 11:47:10 -0700

I had not seen Jason Egan, owner and creator of Fright Dome, since interviewing him in 2005. Since then, there has been a slow transformation of Fright Dome from what was primarily a locals event to one that increasingly includes...(image)

Wayne Newton: A presence more than a performance

Thu, 29 Oct 2009 09:21:48 -0700

Last night there was a red-carpet opening for the new Wayne Newton show at Tropicana. I spoke to his former dance partner Cheryl Burke (pictured with Vanna White), who has kept in touch with Newton and stays at his house...(image)

Buffet scraps: Fangoria Trinity of Terrors, Wayne Newton and Alice Cooper

Wed, 28 Oct 2009 08:59:19 -0700

I am checking into the Palms on Thursday to spend three days live-blogging for the Buffet, covering Halloween in Vegas while focused on the Palms' first annual Fangoria Trinity of Terrors convention, movie festival and concert that I previewed Sunday...(image)

Angel's 'Believe' gets a scary almost-Halloween-anniversary review

Mon, 26 Oct 2009 12:25:09 -0700

Halloween was the official opening of Criss Angel's and Cirque du Soleil's notoriously bad collaboration "Believe." I have been waiting until after Halloween to return to review what is officially titled: "Criss Angel's Believe." I see shows once a year....(image)

Wynn Resorts shakes fist at Garth Brooks scalpers

Mon, 26 Oct 2009 12:16:39 -0700

What is called scalping elsewhere is called being a ticket broker here. It was not legal where I grew up but it is to the best of my knowledge totally legal here in Vegas. I have known one person who...(image)

Perez Hilton on O'Day, Angel, Madison and loving Vegas

Fri, 23 Oct 2009 12:03:44 -0700

I had never met or spoken to Perez Hilton before last night at the VIP check-in at Venetian, where the mere mention that I was waiting for him had security leave me alone despite my being in the VIP lounge...(image)
