Vital Vegas Podcast, Ep. 87: The Bestish of Las Vegas

Gird your loins for another wildly disappointing installment of the podcast even less valuable than a roulette chip at a cashier cage.

In this episode, we take on the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s “Best of Las Vegas” awards. Some of the awards nail it, while others give our WTF muscles a strenuous workout.

Bestish of Las Vegas

This year’s Best of Las Vegas awards got 3.1 million votes, many of them not completely insane. We’re looking at you, whoever voted Rollin’ Smoke BBQ “Best Dessert” in Las Vegas.

We also dive into what makes Las Vegas so much better than everywhere else. Hint: It’s a very long list.

Examples of things that suck about other places: There’s nothing to do, everything closes early, humidity is awful, there are too many people and toll roads, and you’ll rarely find room values like you do in Las Vegas, even with those annoying resort fees.

There’s also a quick review of “A Mob Story” at Plaza, a show we fully expected to hate but didn’t, because great choreography. And stories told by a former “made man.” And butts.

A Mob Story

Oh, there will be whacking.

Learn more about A Mob Story at Plaza, and see it while you can.

Sure, you’re very busy, so shove a Las Vegas podcast into your earholes because it’s not like you’re eating with them. Or something.

Take a listen and get all the Vegas you’ve got coming to you.

    Went to see “Opium” last Thursday and “A Mob Story” on Friday…it was likely a case of suffering by comparison (and I’ll listen to the podcast now to get your take) but I would not really be able to recommend the mob show. Was definitely checking my watch at an hour in…

    Please don’t stop podcasting because of this dumb list. I love your podcast. You’re make my jonesing for Vegas easier to deal with.
