In this special episode of the Vital Vegas Podcast, we chat with Norm Clarke, the man who set the standard for breaking Las Vegas news.
Norm's "Vegas Confidential" column ran in the Las Vegas Review-Journal 1999 to 2016.
It's our birthday, so we're damned well going to do whatever the hell we want!
First up, it's a lively run-down of everything we've been up to in Las Vegas.
Then we've got an interview with an owner of a new downtown restaurant, Two Bald Brothers.
There's the usual news, a listicle of the week (about things for old people to do in Las Vegas) and we also read from a book, "Blood Aces."
It's fun for all ages! Actual results may vary.
There's Pappy. Just listen.
How much Vegas can a single podcast episode hold? This much.
First, we talk to Albert Tabola of Ardent Progressive Systems & Games. He's got the latest on comp drink validation systems and a new machine set to give Sigma Derby a run for its money.
We also get the latest from Derek Stevens (owner of The D and Golden Gate) about the upcoming demolition of a full block on Fremont Street.
It's all the latest news from the city that never sleeps, although it nods off a lot after drinking too damned much.
This Vital Vegas Podcast episode isn't just long and unlistenable, it can also be used as a floatation device!
This week, we've got an interview with the General Manager of the recently-renovated Palm restaurant at the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace.
There's also a slew of Las Vegas news to keep you in the loop.
You'll also get some Vegas history, a listicle and a preview of a new TV show, "L.A. to Vegas."
Listen. Learn. And, finally, be thankful for any hearing impairment you might have.
Oh, yes, we finally get to chat with a Las Vegas escort! Learn more about the business and art of being in the Las Vegas sex industry from Nikki.
Beyond the sex talk, we get into the usual trouble for our 50th episode (hence the "gold" reference), the final show of our first season.
We talk news, history, listicles, iTunes reviews and more.
Just listen. It's more than than doing your lawn. (Actual results may vary.)
Can there ever be too much Vegas? We're about to find out!

Next, we speak with Christina Ellis for all the latest news at Ellis Island.

It's news, it's history, it's pointless rambling just the way you like your pointless rambling. On point!
