Champagne, Caviar Facials and Diamond Pedicures

Escape the woes of our zany world and pamper yourself a bit – or longer – by stepping into something really spa-tacular.  Experience…the Calgon take on human growth hormones:  ElevenSpa spa

This very luxurious off-the-scale 20,000-square-foot spa is opening on Wednesday, February 11, at Town Square in Las Vegas.    It’s so massive that corporate spa events are being planned. 

Originating in Delray Beach, Fla., the unique spa has a new Las Vegas home- and size isn’t all that matters.  It features many amenities not commonly found in spa-ing including six foot tall white patent leather chairs that are wrapped in down (yes, down); mobile pedicure stations; and through all the torture their clients are encouraged to dip their dainty tippy toes into gorgeous glass woks instead of commonplace jet tubs.  

And for the discriminating audiophile spagoer, a DJ booth hovers above the spa with plug-and-play ability so you can control your own beats- if you dare. 

And don’t even think about ordering the ol’ green tea and ice water.  C’mon, you’re in Vegas, baby!  Champagne is always an arm reach away – served on butlers’ trays.  

Bottomless champagne, complementary “after” makeup applications, welcome gifts, and a lounge and relaxation room, resplendent with artificial grass, all tug visitors’ robes to stay longer than planned.  And if all this is not enough, a curved wall projects classic films onto it as you luxuriate your day away.

God’s Disciple Runs for Sin City Mayor

Business as usual doesn’t cut it in today’s sour economy.  Getting the support of a higher power hopes to be the winning ticket for John 3:16 Cook.  This week he threw his colorful hat into the ring to run for mayor of North Las Vegas. 

Cook, 76, is a fervent, active Las Vegas street preacher and longtime advocate for the homeless.  After once running a homeless shelter and after several failed prior bids for Las Vegas political offices.  But his marriage of 21 years is still growing strong with Magickal Marissa- a witch, metaphysict and astrologer.

Cook filed his candidacy last Monday.

Vowing an unconvential campaign,  while courageously fighting cancer, Cook’s candidate fact sheet  under the “other information” category, he wrote:  “I will marry, bury, and baptize all!”

John 3:16 Cook joins a handful of other people in the race to replace term-limited North Las Vegas Mayor Michael Montandon in this year’s municipal elections.

Free Entertainment in Las Vegas: Fremont Street Experience

fremontstreetIn the 60’s Vegas was known for the Rat Pack, showgirls and inexpensive entertainment.   Today the $180 per person ticket for some of the best rated Strip shows is above the budget of many tourists looking for a way to get the most value for the dollar.  Perhaps that explains the interest in the Fremont Street Experience:  A no-cost spectacular that blends elements of classic Las Vegas with current technology in comfortable old-Vegas style. 

When the Fremont Street Experience was first proposed the idea of creating a pedestrian mall under a lighted canopy was not just considered risky, but ridiculous.  However, with an eye to revitalizing the downtown area and giving a boost to Las Vegas landmark hotels like Binon’s and the Golden Nugget, the city council closed a four block stretch of Fremont in 1994 and began the process of creating a unique historic Las Vegas visitor opportunity. 

Now you can step off Las Vegas Boulevard at Fremont and step into the Neon Museum – a collection of neon signs from bi-gone casino’s and hotels.  There is a selection of inexpensive curb-side and casino restaurants to choose from and hourly presentations on the Viva-Vision canopy providing free viewing.  Different bands perform each week for free on the central sound stage.  That’s also where specialty events take place several times a year, including the annual New Years Eve celebration that is jam packed with wall-to-wall partygoers. 

Please check out the Fremont Street Experience calendar for the Viva Vision schedule and for a list of hotel/restaurant options and check online for package discounts available throughout the year.
