In the spirit of (and with a tip of the cap to) the now defunct Trippies, we introduce The Hundy Awards. Five Hundy listeners are invited to vote for their favorite and least favorite Las Vegas hotels, casinos, restaurants, bars, shows and other stuff. Voting is open through Oct. 17. Results will be announced at a time and in a manner to be determined.
A few guidelines:
- One vote per person
- Suspected ballot stuffing attempts will be disregarded
- Ballots with responses to fewer than half of the questions will be disregarded
- If it didnâ€™t exist or occur between Oct. 1, 2017, and Sept. 30, 2018, it doesnâ€™t qualify
- If you have questions about a category, youâ€™re overthinking it; go with your gut
- You probably have a dozen different category ideas and ways that you would do this thing differently, but this is what we chose for better or worse
- This is supposed to be fun, so donâ€™t take it too seriously
For additional details, listen to podcast #663.
And awayâ€¦ weâ€¦ go!
As discussed on the most recent podcast, I have had aspirations for several years to write the Five Hundy by Midnight Outsidersâ€™ Guide to Las Vegas. Today, I have launched a Kickstarter campaign to help make it happen.
Please check out the Kickstarter page and, if youâ€™d like to see this project become a reality, I would appreciate your support.
In the days since posting show #449, Michele and I have been overwhelmed by the flood of supportive e-mails, Facebook comments and tweets. I canâ€™t adequately express how much I appreciate everyone who has taken the time to share personal stories or to simply tell us youâ€™re thinking about us. With so many people on my side, I feel like I canâ€™t lose. So from the depths of my heart, thank you.
Derek Stevens, CEO at The D, announced this afternoon that he has lined up multi-platinum Canadian alt-rock band Our Lady Peace to headline the Vegas Internet Mafia Family Picnic afterparty on Oct. 19. After a fun-filled afternoon with us and our friends from VegasTripping and Vegas Gang, stick around for a massive night in the VIP section directly in front of the Third Street Stage.
If you’ve never been in the VIP section at a Fremont Street Experience concert, trust us… it’s fantastic. In addition to having a great vantage point just feet from the stage, it’s not nearly as packed as the general admission area, plus easy access to the bar.
Whether you’re an Our Lady Peace fan or not, you’ll want to stick around for this party. It’s going to be a great time, and we can’t wait to see you there.
