Vital Vegas Podcast, Ep. 57: Corduroy, Robert Irvine and a Metric Hell-Ton of Unsubstantiated Rumors

It’s the podcast everyone’s talking about. And by “everyone,” of course, we mean the criminally insane.

Join them in enjoying our little dog and pony show as we glaze Las Vegas with our hot, sticky blathering.

Get all the skinny about a new bar on Fremont East, Corduroy, and the new Robert Irvine’s Public House restaurant a Tropicana.

Corduroy

For awhile, Corduroy was going to be called The Vault. Thank you for getting your utterly useless information here.

We’ll also scoop the local media with details about O.J. Simpson’s demolished crime scene at Palace Station, the new zombie attraction at Fremont Street Experience, as well as insider exclusives about All Net Arena, the Raiders training facility and the fate of Flippin’ Good Burgers on Fremont.

O.J. Simpson crime scene

This is the site at Palace Station where O.J. Simpson did his asshattery in Las Vegas. Nine years worth, actually.

Naturally, we’ll pummel your ear canal into submission with an epic and gratuitous round-up of Las Vegas news.

The episode reaches the pinnacle of hedonistic ecstasy (actual results may vary) with a listicle, “20 New Things in Downtown Las Vegas.”

It’s all that and much, much less, so take a listen and kill a few minutes you’d otherwise have to spend helping reverse global warming or something.

    I use to like to comment on your blog, but the last time I commented on your podcast, I was chastised. The irony, of course, was that I listended and was pleasantly surprised. I’m gonna skip listening for a while. I need to get the bad taste of hypocrisy out of my mouth.

    • Comments are a way to express opinions, sometimes those opinions differ. It’s part of the fun. Please feel free to continue taking part in the fun, but get nasty and you’ll be asked to leave. Think of it as a party, and please don’t be that guy at the party.

        I wouldn’t want to be the guy at the party who deems his opinion to be fact. No thanks. Nobody wants to be that guy.

        • By definition, all opinions are subjective. Disagreements are welcome. Just not the same one over and over, expressed in exactly the same way. Sorry! Let’s move on.

            Let’s move on by sharing cheese, sauce and a crust. Sounds good to me. Just don’t call it pizza.

    I wasn’t aware of the “attention economy” until hearing about it on your podcast this week. It’s amazing what a few good psychiatric drugs can do: turn an epidemic deficit disorder into a booming economy in four short decades. That’s fantastic!

    Good podcast.
    A couple trivial observations, all of which are prefaced with IIRC; The valley wash that runs through the Linq parking garage also comes through Caesars Palace. The fear of flooding kept the value of the land low, and Kirk Kerkorian took a chance and bought it on spec in the early 1960s for a fraction of the land value for adjacent parcels. He then leased it to Jay Sarno for Caesars. The lease was for a fixed amount, plus a cut of the gross. It paid so well that Caesars bought the land outright within 3 years.
    You mention OJ was convicted on the anniversary of his murder acquittal, I think he was actually sentenced on the anniversary. The State of Nevada specifically picked that date for that reason, IMO.
    I’m guessing Palace Station left his kidnapping room standing until after his parole hearing in case there was a photo op or story angle that could benefit Stations.
    Keep up the great work.
