You can do almost anything on the Las Vegas Strip, but not that (and it might be worth the trip to fulfill that fantasy.

You can be a different person in Las Vegas than anyone in your day-to-day life. For many people, this means engaging in activities that they might not otherwise consider. This can mean anything from indulging in adult beverages more than usual (and other substances that are legal in Nevada) to gambling, to eating fancy meals. or deciding that sleep is for the weak.

When you visit the Las Vegas Strip, you can gamble all night, find yourself snapping photos with strangers at sunrise, or doing countless other things you might never consider outside of Sin City. Las Vegas also provides the opportunity for people to check things off their to-do lists.

Are you a horror fan? Then you are in luck! Check out all the new horror movies in theaters now. From slashers, jumpscares and the paranormal, there’s a horror movie for every horror movie fan. Click for more information.

It could mean seeing a title like Elton John, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, John Legend or another megastar in residence at a Caesars Entertainment (CZR) – Get the report from Caesars Entertainment Inc. or MGM Resorts International (MGM) – Get MGM Resorts International Report property. It could also mean dining at a top restaurant like Nobu or Mr. Chow at Caesars Palace or Tom Colicchio’s Craftsteak or Eataly at MGM Grand and Park MGM respectively.

Some people also want to try things in Las Vegas that they might not get the chance to do elsewhere. And while the main properties on the Strip offer the possibility of getting a tattoo, receiving an intravenous injection to help recover from jet lag (or a rough night), partying at night and/or in the clubs daytime, along with countless other activities, there’s one thing you can’t be on the Las Vegas Strip – a mermaid.

To do this, you’ll need to head off the Strip to Silverton Casino, a unique resort located off I-15 and Blue Diamond in Las Vegas.

Las Vegas Resort offers a mermaid school

Bringing attention to an out-of-band property can be a challenge. The Silverton Casino Hotel has leveraged its unique “sirens” to help steer guests away from Caesars, MGM and the other big players on the Las Vegas Strip.

When the property opened in 2004, it offered a mermaid show inside its 117,000 gallon tank as its main attraction. That show ended, but the mermaids remained, swimming in the tank several times a day to entertain guests.

And, in 2019, before the pandemic, the Silverton added a mermaid school for children ages 7 to 12. This offer was closed during the pandemic and was brought back in April with teens and adults also allowed on certain dates, Casino.org’s Corey Levitan reported.

The class, which costs $175 per person, offers budding mermaids the chance to put on a tail (you can’t keep it on) and learn how to be a mermaid while swimming in the hotel’s massive tank.

The Silverton Hotel Casino is undergoing a major refurbishment

This Mermaid School expansion comes as the Silverton Casino Hotel undergoes “a complete reinvention of its hotel offering, creating a new boutique hotel experience to anchor the resort,” the company explained in a press release.

The property’s 300 rooms will be redesigned and remodeled into what the company called “three distinct design stories”:

  • Kitsch cowboy collection: Rooms showcasing a quirky blend of rustic chic with tasteful modern accents
  • Modern Rustic Collection: Rooms with natural, aged and weathered furnishings, with the natural warm feeling of the outdoors
  • Living Lodge Collection: rooms inspired by the elegant glamorous design of the Rockies and the legendary cattle baron’s homes found in the West.

“It’s more than a room makeover,” said Silverton CEO Craig Cavileer.. “This was an opportunity to creatively reimagine our entire Las Vegas hotel operations. While maintaining aspects of our lodge theme that our guests have enjoyed over the years, our new rooms and suites will envelop our guests in a new spirit of rustic elegance, offering a unique Las Vegas hotel experience.”

The $45 million renovation is expected to be completed in early 2023.

Now 0-2 after collapsing against the Arizona Cardinals, the Las Vegas Raiders enter their next game in a can’t-miss situation.

They will face another 0-2 team in the Tennessee Titans after being eliminated in their Monday Night Football game against the Buffalo Bills, 41-7.

Earning the number one seed from the AFC last year with a 12-5 record, the Titans didn’t look like that same team in their Week 1 loss to the New York Giants.

After missing the last half of the season with an injury, star running back Derrick Henry looked deadly, finishing with just 82 rushing yards on 21 carries.

When I first met Jeff German in the early 1980s in Las Vegas SunI was a savvy sports columnist working on my best Jim Murray-meets-Mike Royko impersonation.

German was a young out-of-town reporter/columnist trying to take Vegas by storm. He wrote as Sgt. Joe Friday spoke. If he had a sense of humor, he hid it well in his reporter’s notebook.

Even back then, he prided himself on asking tough questions, and he asked a lot. Like Walter Winchell with better hair, German had a nose for news, a hard work ethic and a real knack for irritating others.

One of those he angered was Seymour Freedman, a former boxer and New York City cop who worked as a bailiff for former Strip jazz drummer turned City Court judge Seymore Brown. Along with being the judge’s assistant and personal valet, Freedman was also a childhood friend of Gambino family associate Gaspare “Jasper” Speciale.

Bookmaker and telephone money lender, Speciale and his partner Bobby “The Hunchback” Barent operated the popular Tower of Pizza restaurant on the Strip. At the Tower, customers could get a pepperoni pizza with double cheese, a big plate of spaghetti and meatballs, a bet on a ball game, and a loan at street interest rates. Freedman worked for Speciale, but not as a busboy.

When German began searching the bailiff’s friends, Freedman responded. At a party at the Sands, the usher threw a drink in German’s face and then punched the reporter, sending him to Sunrise Hospital with a split lip that needed stitches. At the hospital, German was met by subway officer David Groover, who, along with his partner Gene Smith, had been tormented mercilessly by the reporter in the pages of the Sun.

“German looked at me and said, ‘I can’t take a break. I get punched in the mouth by a guy I’m writing about, and now they’re sending you to investigate,'” recalls Groover, now commissioner of the Nevada Transportation Authority, “I jokingly told him that Gene Smith was on his way to help with the investigation.”

When German wrote about the incident a few days later, a strange thing happened. He was really funny. Not exactly Henny Youngman, mind you, but his writing was a far cry from the starchy, stentorian tone of his usual column.

When I met him in the hallway, I greeted him effusively and complimented him on the self-deprecating humor of his article. He swallowed the whole compliment.

“Great story, Jeff,” I said. “Someone should punch you in the mouth every day.”

As you may have guessed, our acquaintance got off to a slow start. But I learned that German can take a punch and crack a joke.

At that time, he sat next to another promising young reporter, Scott Zamost, who was as slick as German was tough. Now CNN’s senior investigative producer, like so many of German’s colleagues, Zamost was stunned by news of German’s recent murder, allegedly at the hands of Clark County Public Administrator Rob Telles, which the reporter was investigating. .

Zamost recalls the time the pair left work late on Christmas Eve and stumbled into a bar to find Chicago Outfit hitman Anthony Spilotro holding court with badass actor Robert Conrad. With his deadline never running out, the German asked for an interview. Although Spilotro was quite cordial, for a notorious killer he knew it was best to speak with a reporter.

Zamost went ahead and up, German until his next signing in Las Vegas, but the two stayed in touch.

“I’ve seen Jeff for dinner every time I’ve been back to Vegas — last time in 2019,” he says. “He was basically the same person he was in the 80s. It’s all so surreal.

In the 1980s, sports journalists worked late at Sun. Long after most of the newsroom had been emptied and City Hall and county government reporters had returned home to their families or favorite watering holes, the Sports Bureau continued to buzz to the deadline in order to wedge West Coast ball scores into the final edition. By then, the newsroom would be mostly silent, except for a surprise visit from incendiary editor Hank Greenspun. An exception to the regular nocturnal exodus was the German, at his desk, grinding.

After work in those years, it was still common to encounter the sports crowd, that heady cocktail of late-night humanity that included bookmakers, entertainers, politicians, lawyers, casino workers and the rogue element. As a sports columnist and later Metro columnist at Review-JournalI sometimes saw the German in this crowd, working his sources between sips of beer.

He was a constant presence around the courthouse. If there was a big trial, German was sure to have a piece of the story and sometimes the whole thing. A tireless digger, he was hard to beat. Although I sometimes cringed at the stories he wrote to please management, his work ethic was undeniable.

These days, as the community tries to come to terms with a senseless and vicious act of violence committed against a dedicated journalist doing his job, memories are flooding in for German. Geoff Schumacher, a longtime Las Vegas journalist and author now vice president of the Mob Museum, considers German a friend — not that the relationship has always been easy.

When Schumacher landed at The Sun in 1988 fresh out of college, so new to the business, he laughed, he didn’t recognize Hank Greenspun: “The undisputed editorial star at the time was Jeff German . Jeff was an investigative reporter and columnist, and he took on the biggest stories in town. When I became the Sun‘s city editor, technically I was Jeff’s supervisor, but it didn’t really work out that way. Its main boss was Mike O’Callaghan, the former governor of Nevada who was the newspaper’s editor. When Jeff was rendering his stories and columns, we could argue over word usage or punctuation, but that was about it.

“Jeff was a tenacious reporter. When he identified a story he wanted to pursue, he was relentless in his desire to get the story — and get it first.

He was often the first and did not hesitate to call him back.

Some have called German selfish, and I think that’s true. But after decades of delay, I’ve met few journalists — and no columnists — who didn’t believe their literary gems and topical revelations were essential reading to be enshrined for posterity.

His friend Schumacher said: “As a young man, Jeff could be gruff at times, perhaps a trait that came with being an aggressive reporter who had to deal with a lot of people who wouldn’t tell him what was going on. really. But overall he was a nice guy.

Schumacher left the Sun after a decade, but the two teamed up again in 2021 in association with the RJ for the popular “Mobbed Up” podcast. At 69, German served as narrator and lead reporter for the series, and the result is a significant contribution to Las Vegas history.

Daily journalism is a difficult profession, which uses the dedicated like a pencil n°2. Like many others, over time I have come to appreciate Jeff German.

Even after four decades, he never stopped knocking.

John L. Smith is a longtime author and columnist. He was born in Henderson, and his family’s roots in Nevada date back to 1881. His stories have appeared in Time, Readers Digest, The Daily Beast, Reuters, Ruralite, and Desert Companion, among others. He also offers weekly commentary on Nevada public radio station KNPR.

Brendan Schaub didn’t like Dana White’s shot at him the day after UFC 279.

After a chaotic week in Las Vegas where the promotion was forced to shuffle the top three fights from its pay-per-view event following Khamzat Chimaev’s infamous underweight, part of the MMA community thought the whole situation was pre- planned.

Schaub, along with former UFC champion Pat Miletich, were among those who expressed their opinions. They theorized a plot for the UFC to improve the card due to low pay-per-view interest.

After Tuesday’s episode of Dana White’s Contender series, UFC President castigated at Miletich and called him “the dumbest motherfucker on the planet”. White was also informed that Schaub had come up with his own theories, which he says “makes sense” (via Twitter):

Schaub didn’t appreciate the tone in which White delivered his comment and posted on social media on Wednesday to offer his response.

Schaub held nothing back and tackled White from every angle, from personal to professional, and brought fighter compensation and the UFC’s association with various media into the fold.

Check out the statement below (via Instagram):

Oh my god…here we go again. I was being cool and thought you’d learn from the last time you mentioned my name and got destroyed. Sadly, not surprised you’re a bully. Always have been. You put on designer jeans and “hip sneakers” and think you’re cool. You’re still a jerk with a frat brother vocabulary. Calling me and many people “idiot” “idiot” “fucking idiot” because we have questions about “the chaos” at UFC279? Also, no one is talking about *entry tickets*, I was referring to *pay-per-view* purchases and the *trend* of UFC 279…that you don’t release to the public, but you’ll say “it’ went F*ckin big bros!” Sorry, we just don’t buy what you tell us after repeatedly lying, but the sheep media you choose to attend events don’t have the balls to call you. At the recent press conference, you were caught lying about extra compensation for fighters. You need a reality check. You are surrounded by “Yes men”. You are not special, you are not original. You’re a Vince McMahon on a budget. Every move you make is a copy of this guy’s cat. The only thing you have in common is that you’re both on steroids and you dress like assholes. Need I remind you that your origin story is a failed cardio kick boxing instructor who had two wealthy friends in high school to fund this business. Now go do a “cool” video with the Nelk boys to stay relevant or have your PR team come up with a good press article to distract fans from fighters’ pay and how they should wear these horrible shoes Rock under armor and won’t see a dime. “Dummy”
PS. Stop stealing my shows from the thicccboy network and recreating them on Fight pass, k?
Also… leave Pat Miletich alone.

(CNN) – Anger erupts in a Las Vegas newsroom – and questions swirl far beyond freedom of the press in America – after a county elected official was arrested on Wednesday in connection with the murder of a veteran journalist who had reported on the official’s alleged wrongdoing, his newspaper said.

Clark County Public Administrator Robert Telles — who is the subject of investigative reporting by Jeff German of the Las Vegas Review-Journal — has been arrested, Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo told the Review. -Newspaper, days after German was found stabbed to death outside his home.

“We are… scandalized that a colleague seems to have been killed for having denounced an elected official. Journalists cannot do the important work that our communities need if they fear that reporting the facts will lead to violent retaliation,” the newspaper’s editor, Glenn Cook, said in a statement on Wednesday.

Telles is suspected of murder and is scheduled to appear in court Thursday afternoon, according to Clark County Jail online records. Telles has not been publicly linked by police to German’s death; CNN has contacted the Las Vegas Metro Police Department and Telles’ office and is working to determine his legal representation.

“Las Vegas law enforcement should conduct a prompt and thorough investigation into the murder of journalist Jeff German, determine whether he was targeted for his work, and hold those responsible to account,” the Committee for Justice said this week. the protection of journalists.

Police are expected to provide further updates on their investigation on Thursday.

Uniformed officers and police vehicles were seen outside Telles’ home on Wednesday, according to local media. Las Vegas police confirmed that officers had issued search warrants for German’s death, but did not immediately provide additional information.

According to the Review-Journal, German had been working on an article for Telles the week he was killed. Earlier this year, Telles was the subject of articles detailing his surveillance of his office, and German reported that Telles created a hostile work environment and had an inappropriate relationship with a staff member.

Telles denied the reports, the Review-Journal said. First elected to the position in 2018, Telles lost his re-election bid in a Democratic primary in June.

“The arrest of Robert Telles is both a huge relief and an outrage to the Review-Journal newsroom,” Cook, the editor, said on Wednesday.

“We thank the Las Vegas police for their urgency and hard work and for immediately recognizing the terrible significance of Jeff’s murder. Now hopefully the Review-Journal, the German family and Jeff’s many friends can begin the process of mourning and honoring a great man and brave journalist. Good luck, Jeff.

Police asked for the public’s help

German was discovered outside his home on Saturday morning, and police suspect the murder may have taken place earlier. Authorities have asked those in the area to review all outdoor surveillance cameras beginning Friday between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. to possibly capture a better look at someone who may have been involved in the killing.

According to Las Vegas police, a potential suspect “was potentially locking down the area for further crimes before the homicide occurred.” Surveillance footage of someone wearing a bright orange shirt and wide-brimmed hat has been released, along with a photo of what appears to be a brown GMC SUV.

Colleagues of German examining Google Maps noticed a brown SUV similar to the photo released by authorities in Telles’ driveway, said Arthur Kane, a Review-Journal reporter who had worked with German.

“Police came down and cordoned off the area, started searching his house,” Kane told CNN’s Erin Burnett on Wednesday. The SUV was registered to Telles’ wife, Kane said, and the vehicle was taken away by investigators.

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (KVVU) — In recognition of “Wellness Month” in August, we spoke with a Las Vegas small business owner who is making a difference in our own backyard.

Coach Rose Peterson, a mother of three, says during her own journey she has been able to focus her career on mothers struggling to get back into shape and taking time off to help with health mental.

Peterson says one of the biggest challenges she hears about is taking time for yourself as a mother. She said it was hard for herself to find the motivation to work out or do anything other than be a mom.

Peterson says she was able to find inspiration by taking baby steps.

“During my journey to find what works for me, while juggling kids, motherhood and a home, that’s what inspired me to become a coach, which a lot of moms think they should change everything, but actually all they can do a little bit at a time is what matters,” Peterson said.

She said even 10 minutes of walking, baby steps can help.
