The Discovery Museum and the LV Natural History museum are both close to downtown. If you go to Red Rock (well worth a trip) they have a petting zoo and riding stables. If you go to the Damn or the Bypass Bridge walkway, they have a zip line place in Boulder City. The High Roller Ferris Wheel isn't ...

Over the past couple of weeks, I've gotten a lot of calls on my cell phone (anonymous number, of course) from someone saying that "allegations have been filed against me" and giving me an 855 # and a case number. They've said that they've contacted my supervisor at work (who hasn't advised me of any...

Not going to read the whole thread but I have seen this show 3 or 4 times.

I loved Mardi Gras growing up and I rode in the Krewe of Caesar for a few years back in the late 80's - early 90's. Always have had good MG experiences but I'm surprised at how little I've missed it and Jazz Fest since I moved away. These days, I try harder to make it into town for French Quarter Fe...

I had a feeling that the Tigers could have a great season but I'll put it this way...on October 11th of that year, I watched LSU sleepwalk through a 19 - 7 loss at home against Florida. Right after that, I saw OU beat the life out of Texas to the tune of 65 - 13. Had you told me then that LSU would ...
