Vital Vegas Podcast, Ep. 29: The Good, The Bad, The Vegas

It’s been a wild week in Las Vegas, and on this installment of the Vital Vegas Podcast, we’ll ramble incoherently about all of it.

We’ll cover our Las Vegas adventures, including a stop at Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips at the Linq promenade, our encounter with Chumlee at Pawn Plaza (pictured below), the unpleasantness of a new sucker bet at Venetian called Sands Roulette, our happy visit to Happy Feet at El Cortez, a Donald Trump sighting and more.

Chumlee Pawn Stars

“Pawn Stars” fan favorite Chumlee greets fans in honor of the one year anniversary of Pawn Plaza.

Naturally, we’ll regurgitate everything in the blog from this week, including our exclusive news White Castle will open on Fremont Street and Stratosphere’s looking at its own version of the Grand Canyon Skywalk.

We also dive headlong into a perfunctory round-up of Las Vegas news: Gordie Brown’s show is closing Nov. 24, Vinnie Favorito filed for bankruptcy, “Shotspeare” opened at Planet Hollywood, Celine hit 1,000 shows, “Yes, I Can’t” closed at El Cortez, the City of Las Vegas has a new logo and Bruno Mars dropped a new video with lots of Vegas in it, “24K Magic.”

All this and the annoying clinking of ice in this week’s dog and pony show.

Press “play,” because this podcast isn’t going to listen to itself.

    Why isn’t chumlee in jail after he was busted with posing illegal guns, meth and other drugs and a kid napping charge? Why is he even being given any PR at all? I find it funny that vital vegas deletes these types of posts and only leaves the ones they want and agree with.

    • Dude, as I think I’ve said before, I don’t delete comments unless they’re racist or sexist or slamming another commenter. As I’ve also mentioned, this isn’t a public forum. It’s my site and I can do whatever I want. Your contributions are welcome, but I’d prefer you get your facts straight before slinging nonsense. As for Chumlee, he went to court and a verdict was rendered. He plead guilty to a felony weapon charge and misdemeanor attempted drug possession, so three years probation.

        Thanks Scott. Sometimes in life you need a wake up call. We will be more cognizant of what I write. Sorry

      “Why is he even being given any PR at all?” are you serious? Celebrities that commit crimes are given PR all the time. Look at Bruce Jenner or OJ Simpson, they killed people. The reason he is not in jail is because he wasn’t sentenced to jail. We have a justice system and they determined that he should not go to jail, but rather get 3 years probation. Why keep commenting that Vital Vegas is deleting your posts? If you don’t like the blog, nobody is forcing you to read it. Those of us that do read it appreciate the work Scott puts into it.

  • not much going on this week, then? 🙂

    Can’t wait to listen to the podcast in the freezing cold at 7am on my commute in the morning…you and captain morgan keep me warm!
