Here’s Some Pre-Opening Video Of SLS Las Vegas

SLS Las Vegas Casino Bar
SLS Las Vegas Casino Bar. I hate renderings.

I’m heading out to SLS Las Vegas in a couple of hours and will share pictures and info from the press conference and property tour on twitter and instagram. In the meantime here are a couple of PR videos to show and tell you about the newest hotel on the Vegas Strip.

SLS Las Vegas Property Tour – Shows what the casino, restaurants and rooms look like. This video is actual footage of SLS Las Vegas (thankfully) and not a crappy rendering video. The audio was wonky for me so crank up some jams, it’s 4 minutes long.

Sound bites from SLS Las Vegas Partners: Sam Bakhshandehpour, Philippe Starck & Jose Andres talk about their excitement for the property. I didn’t watch this video because I don’t need to hear how excited they are and how this will change Las Vegas forever.

Tweet ya later!

Beautiful Video Driving Through Las Vegas In 1969

I don’t remember how I stumbled across this beautiful video of someone driving through Las Vegas in 1969 but I’m glad I did.

I’m not the most nostalgic Vegas lover but this video struck a nerve with me. I’ve been writing about the changes happening on the Vegas Strip a lot lately and this video goes back before the Vegas Strip became the massive overcrowded (awesome) mess it is today.

Over the weekend a friend who hasn’t visited Las Vegas in 5 years asked me where to get a cheap buffet. There really aren’t any “cheap” buffet’s around the Vegas Strip anymore. Buffet prices are more like fairly priced meals than the bargain they once were. It’s difficult to convey that simply in a text message.

I’ve noticed a lot of people visiting Las Vegas that haven’t been here in so many years. They’re in for a lot of new things. Vegas is nothing like it was 3 to 5 years ago. It’s easy to forget that when you live or visit often. I love seeing Vegas evolve but the changes happening now are a bit overwhelming and making me a bit nostalgic.

New Slot – Wizard Of Oz Ruby Slippers

I was checking my twitter feed yesterday when i came across this this video for WMS Slots new Wizard of Oz slot machine – Ruby Slippers.

I have a love hate relationship with nickle/penny slots, but this looks like a lot of fun.  Most of the WMS slots have similar features and I dig them.

Unfortunately, Ruby Slippers is only at Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City right now.  I don’t see myself making it down there on my next trip to Atlantic City.  At least I have this video.
