Resorts, Businesses and Activities in this episode...

This week saw more insane weather overtake Las Vegas. Instead of just casino leaks we saw dangerous flood water, closures of highways, debris fields galore, sinkholes and tons of eye opening footage from all around Las Vegas. Will Sin City ever learn how to properly handle the rain?

In other #news a new stunning Speakeasy is coming to Durango. They are really doing a great job of hyping up their venues ahead of the November 20th opening! We also discuss which Strip eyesore is going bye bye, why Fontainebleau is not hyping like Durango, how Oakland wants to keep the Athletics name and why Dubai is going to become the Las Vegas of the Middle East.
