What a great time we had in Las Vegas last weekend. Instead of writing show notes, doing research and all that jazz, David and Alicia Ivy just talk about the last THREE days in Las Vegas. Recorded at the MGM Grand The Las Vegas Locals cover:
Recorded at The Silverton, Bally’s and on the Monorail, Alicia and David Ivy get back to our discussion about about not paying over $4 for a beer in Las Vegas. Is it really $9 for a Coors Light at Cosmopolitan? Do we really “Love this Bar”? Is there really that much tequila in a perfect margarita? We also teach a lesson in tucking one’s “Cool Balls” and having fun in dorky places (or at least dorky to some). We also hit the NFR Cowboy Christmas, discover that Du-pars is over priced and learn that some of the “not cool” casinos are just that… Cool!
- Toby Keith’s I love This Bar
- Jimmy Buffets Magaritaville
- Eureka Casino
- Silver Seven’s Casino
- Cowboy Christmas
Recorded at the bar of the Clarion and in the fancy garden area of The Wynn, we decide that Las Vegas is in fact the safest city in the world. Maybe not the safest city to live but the safest city to visit. Why not? Where else can you get completely smashed, act a fool and pass out in the street of a major metropolitan city and you will most likely end up safe and sound in your hotel room?
On location at The Venetian, Carnival Court and Slots A Fun and we are on a budget. So where do we go for cheap thrills and spills? Alicia and David Ivy kind of got distracted by Las Vegas and forgot we were recording an episode of Las Vegas Locals. As a result there are some great moments of drunken tourists, Circus fails and police activity. We also pay homage to some people that inspired us like Charlie Bass of Vegas Talk Radio, Cheap O Vegas, Ted at Access Vegas and Tony Curtis of Vegas Advisor
We also give our impressions of some new Down town Las Vegas spots.
On location from The LVH and Slots A Fun. is everything we have learned about the sex industry (Hookers) in Las Vegas. We were as surprised as you will be at how much one picks up in your travels throughout Las Vegas. The Las Vegas Locals: The most dangerous Las Vegas Podcast? Maybe.
This is by no means an expert opinion but as listeners to David and Alicia, you already know that. We apologize in advance for some of the things we cover in this weeks episode. Special Thanks to Precious Roy , Saul Goodman and Hunter of Vegas Mate. We are sure they are happy to be a part of such a classy episode.
We come at ya from Mandalay Bay’s Orchid Lounge.

Big fight weekend in Las Vegas and I wish we had tickets. Instead we get freebies to KA. Great! So we started at one of our favorite cheap joints, Hooters Hotel and Casino before heading in to the belly of the MGM on the biggest fight of the year to watch a Cirque show. This can’t end badly.
We stopped at at Hooters because they ALWAYS have all beers for $4 and $3 Sauza, Jameson or Fireball shots with purchase of a beer. After the fight and show we needed a Philly Cheese Steak so we headed to the best in town, Steak Out next to UNLV.
