Who are we? Well, in terms of sheer obfuscation, who aren’t we?
More specifically, though, we are lovers of all things Las Vegas. We love the casinos, the restaurants, the shows and even Criss Angel. Well, OK, we love the casinos, the restaurants and shows.
We should say this, up front: As of March 3, 2014, our day job is that of Interactive Marketing Manager for the Fremont Street Experience. Fremont Street Experience serves as the marketing umbrella for a group of casinos including The D Las Vegas, Fremont, California, Main Street, Four Queens, Binion’s, Golden Gate and Golden Nugget.
That said, our opinions are completely our own. We loved downtown Las Vegas before we got the gig, and we continue to love it now.
While our site is a hobby, we would not be offended if you visited our Cafepress Shop for some Las Vegas merch.
We’re here to give you the essential news and information you need to get the most from your next Las Vegas visit, all with a slightly skewed, and often highly-intoxicated, perspective.
We know people. We dig things up. We lampoon when required. We’re so inside, we’re concave.
One of the most baffling things about us is we’re just one person, Scott Roeben, although we speak about ourselves in the first person plural. Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ve been in Las Vegas for more than a decade, and once created words for one of the world’s most recognized Web sites, LasVegas.com.
From there, we went on to write the blog for Caesars Entertainment, the world’s largest gaming company, including a number of Las Vegas resorts. The blog was named the “Best Blog” in the country in PR Daily’s 2012 Digital PR and Social Media Awards. We were named the most valuable blogger/blog in Las Vegas in 2011 by CBS Las Vegas, and were an editor’s choice for Best Blog in the Trippies Awards in 2010. “Essential.” We liked the sound of that.
Given our love of Las Vegas, though, it was just a matter of time before we started a site devoted to the entire city. The Strip. Downtown. All of it. Well, maybe not the nightclubs so much. We don’t really get those.
We were recently honored to be named “Best Blog” in the 2013 Las Vegas Digital Media Awards, presented by the Las Vegas Interactive Marketing Association.
We were also named the “Best Las Vegas Blog” in the Trippies Awards each year from 2014 to 2017.
If we look familiar, it’s because we have a weekly segment on KLAS Channel 8 Las Vegas.
Hear some rambling insights into what VitalVegas.com is all about in this riveting radio interview.
Here’s the thing about VitalVegas.com, though. What’s vital is hearing from you, and creating a place where the community of people who love Las Vegas can chat each other up, answer questions and share tips and snarky comments about Criss Angel. So, please comment. Share our posts and pictures if you enjoy them. (If you don’t, keep it to yourself.) Post thoughts and questions. Tell us about your trip. Your discoveries. Your disappointments. Your sexcapades.
Thanks for visiting, and we hope you’ll be back.
