Bellagio Water Show

June 4, 2008

It`s a show of water, music and light. All for your amusement, the most ambitious, choreographically complex water feature ever conceived amazes against the beautiful backdrop of Las Vegas’ lavender sky.

A couple years ago, two mad-scientist types known as Eepy Bird became an internet sensation by dropping more than 500 Mentos mints into 200 liters of Diet Coke with explosive results. Thanks to a scientific force called nucleation and some careful manipulation, the cola shot in the air like a geyser and danced around in ways resembling the world famous Fountains at Bellagio.

Climate

December 18, 2007

The Las Vegas Valley lies in the (relatively) high altitude Mojave Desert.  It can result in drastic changes of temperature between seasons, even day and night.

Daily summer temperatures from June through August typically exceed 100 °F . While low ambient humidity tempers the effect of these temperatures, dehydration, heat exhaustion, and sun stroke can occur after even a limited time outdoors in the summer.

Winter temperatures are very mild with lows of around 30 °F (-1 °C). Snow accumulation at the valley floor is rare but the surrounding mountains receive as much as ten feet (3 m) in the winter.

Acoustic 209

November 3, 2007

Acoustic 209 was started by a modest collective of acoustic musicians, singer/songwriters and artists who appreciate the enormous potential of providing a showcase for local acoustic and artistic talents.
On the first Friday of each month Acoustic 209 brings together some of the best, most talented and creative acoustic performers in Las Vegas, and invites the public into our home at 209 East Colorado, to share and enjoy the experience. The musical and artistic styles presented are as varied and unique.  Acoustic 209 affords local acoustic and visual artists the opportunity to present their art to an open and receptive audience, network among their peers, and cultivate their talents in a supportive and cooperative environment.

Khoury’s Mediterranean Restaurant has a spacious feel to it. This is in part due to the many large windows it has throughout. Its claim to Mediterranean food might be a little misleading, in that most people will think French, Spanish, Italian and so on. This isn’t exactly a place of the Mediterranean diet per se, it’s more a place of Lebanese cuisine.

If you’ve ever been to Spain you will know what tapas are. They don’t have them in the Middle East, but they have their equuivilent in mezze. The menu at Khoury’s tells you that, “”it is a tradition to eat mezze at every meal.” It’s a wonderful tradition too.

Lebanese food tends to come in many small dishes, rather than the three-course meals that the west often favors. When I say many, I really do mean many. expect an array of small dishes that will keep you occupied for quite a while. But it will be a highly enjoyable time spent, so don’t worry.

If you’ve never tasted a Lebanese wine, this is your chance. They produce a strong wine, but very smmoth wines too. They may not be on the world’s top ten list, but don’t let that fool you; they are excellent and you really should try one.

If you are visiting Las Vegas you really have to try several of the very fine restaurants there. Consider Khoury’s Mediterranean Restaurant as something different, but also an experience that you will never forget.
