Dec 18, 2014  |   Contributor: JustLuxe Team

Aug 5, 2014  |   Contributor: Nicolle Monico

I recently went to Las Vegas for a girl’s weekend getaway. And upon return, friends kept asking what the best part of the trip was. I’m a little embarrassed to say that it was the food, only because we had amazing accommodations, enjoyed our fair share of poolside libations and ended our nights dancing in the city’s best clubs. Yet, those things will always be a part of the Vegas experience.

The More Laid Back Las Vegas Experience for Travelers of All Ages

Aug 1, 2014  |   Contributor: Donald Herrera-Fairbairn  |  1 Comment

As the rare Italian, blueberry-infused beer slid flavorfully to the back of my throat, the cicerone for Public House at The Venetian in Las Vegas described the undeniably unique and especially bold flavors of the aptly named My Blueberry Nightmare. Hints of oak barrel aging and a spicy kick from hot chili confused my taste buds unlike any beverage I've ever experienced before. Imagine expecting a semi-sweet brew only to be confronted with a savory bitter flavor followed up by a punch of heat and a tart blueberry finish. It was nowhere near what I expected, yet I ended up thoroughly enjoying the new combination of tastes, which now stands as a perfect analogy for my entire trip to Las Vegas.

MGM Resorts International to Build a Park at the Las Vegas Strip in 2016

May 6, 2014  |   Contributor: Donald Herrera-Fairbairn

Slated for an opening in 2016 at the same time as the new 20,000-seat arena on the Las Vegas Strip, MGM Resorts International will be installing a park that will link together Monte Carlo and New York-New York.
