Episode #68 - Off Strip with Tara and Taylor

I was able to sit down recently with Taylor and Tara, frequent Vegas visitors and friends of me and the show. Recently, they’ve been taking a decent amount of their time and play away from the Strip and Downtown, venturing to some of the local resorts where they feel they find they get good service and conditions for the money. In this conversation, we talk about Red Rock, Green Valley Ranch, and The Orleans, as potential places for those who are looking for a change in their Vegas itineraries.


Episode #67 - Stadium Gambling

In this episode, I discuss stadium gambling - why the casinos like it, why players may like it, and if it'll become a mainstay. I get a little help from John Connelly, CEO of Interblock Gaming, and Jason Gregorec, CEO of Greektown Casino in Detroit.

Episode #60 - Your Budget Hotel Options

In this episode I discuss our Vegas budget hotel options, detailing my thoughts about most of them. Fun drinking game for this one: take a sip every time I call something "serviceable" or "drab". Actually, don't do that. I don't need any litigation against me.

He enjoys the casino business and looks for new opportunities to learn more about it and is happy to discuss the industry with us. I culled questions from Twitter and he was eager to provide some insight.
