Vital Vegas Podcast, Ep. 115: Scoop, Sports and Superabundant Suckery

What the hell is happening in Las Vegas?

First, please watch the language.

Second, we’ve got this!

It’s another installment of the podcast guaranteed to satisfy your insatiable cravings for all things WTF.

For starters, we’ve got some incisive (your results may vary) commentary about Area 15 and Bugsy & Meyer’s Steakhouse at Flamingo. Spoiler alert: Love them.

Oddwood Area 15

Oddwood Lounge is at the heart of Area 15, a new mall we haven’t figured out how to describe yet, but we quite enjoyed it, anyway.

In this show, we chat with Howard Barish, Managing Editor and General Manager of Gaming Today magazine. Gaming Today has been around 45 years, so they sort of have the sports betting thing down.

That’s right, it’s a sports thing. On our podcast. You know what they say: If you can’t beat ’em, let a sports guy talk about sports so we don’t have to! Barish shares his thoughts on “music, sex and sports,” but mostly that last thing.

Naturally, we give our two 0.0000017 Bitcoin (yes, that’s two cents as we write this) about Bizarro Vegas. You know, the one where Cosmopolitan and Wynn and The D and others are increasing security because of a spike in boneheads visiting Las Vegas recently.

Cosmo

On the bright side, irksome security measures at Cosmo only make it five percent less awesome.

Our “Listicle of the Week” features some sadness, specifically, “Nine Las Vegas Casinos That Are Still Closed.” In case you have a podcast allergy, and we wouldn’t blame you, here’s the list.

The Las Vegas casinos still closed are: Cromwell, Palms, Rio, Main Street Station (Downtown), Fiesta Rancho (North Las Vegas), Texas Station (North Las Vegas), Fiesta Henderson (Henderson), Eldorado Casino (Henderson) and Eastside Cannery (Boulder Highway).

Otherwise, it’s the usual rambling drivel you’ve come to know and avoid.

Gird your eustachian tube and take a listen.

    Hello Scott,
    Thanks again for all the interesting did bits about the city I have come to visit often and love dearly.
    I can’t wait to see all the changes,…. locally we have changes and so we all learn to adapt.
    To avoid unsavory areas and people. That is a given.
    keep all the news coming my way and everyones way, it brings us hope for Las Vegas City future and ours.
    Take care and stay safe.
    Pamela
