I've spent the past week dipping in and out of Stolen. Here's what would make it more fun for me. What would you add?
- •Search by name
- •Sort / filter by price
- •Fix wish list - doesn't work for me even when I star people.
These aren't ranked - they're all excellent work and lift up the songs. Add your favorites in the comments and I'll edit/update the list.
- •Baker Street (Gerry Rafferty, 1978) - sax by Raphael Ravenscroft
- •Born To Run (Bruce Springsteen, 1975) - sax by Clarence Clemons
- •Jungleland (Bruce Springsteen, 1975) - sax by Clarence Clemons
If you drive to Vegas - or rent a car during your stay - here are the best (read: easiest in and out) places to park at hotels along the Strip. But keep this just between us, m'kay?
- •Mandalay Bay: Use the Delano's valet. If it's full, use the Four Seasons valet and walk through.
- •Luxor: Use the Mandalay Place valet . Enter off the Road To Mandalay, opposite the Mandalay Bay entrance. (No overnight parking.)
- •MGM Grand: The garage is gargantuan and the valet can take ages. Easier: park at the Tropicana across the street, and walk across the street.
I lived in LA for over 2 decades before moving to Las Vegas in 2014. I love my new hometown, but there are a few things I still miss dearly about Los Angeles.
- 1.The ocean.
- 2.My friends. Although they come visit :)
- 3.News radio. There is no news radio station in Las Vegas. How can that be? 80% of Nevada's population lives here!
- •Tony Burrows sang lead on "Love Grows (Where My Rosemary Goes)" by Edison Lighthouse and "Beach Baby" by First Class.
- •Paul Carrack sang lead on "How Long" by Ace, "Tempted" by Squeeze, and "The Living Years" by Mike & The Mechanics.
- •Mickey Thomas sang lead on "Fooled Around And Fell In Love" by Elvin Bishop and "Sara" by Jefferson Starship.
I moved to Las Vegas (from Los Angeles) in 2014.
- •The Strip 10 miles to the east of me, and Red Rock Canyon 10 miles to the west.
- •My 10-mile commute takes 16 minutes.
- •More master sommeliers than any other city. Cheers.
My friends always ask for recommendations when they visit Vegas. I'm not one for boisterous bars, so my favorite places are (with one exception) the lounge areas of restaurants. If you're looking to dance or hook up, this probably isn't the list for you. ;)
- •PicassoIn addition to being one of the best restaurants in town, Picasso boasts one of the nicest places to have a drink. The bar itself only seats six, but there’s also a small adjoining seating area. The room is lovely and adorned with works by the artist. Most nights Kirby is behind the bar, and his cocktails are masterful. If you’re inclined to wine, Robert Smith is the resident Master Sommelier. Bonus: Picasso has a private patio right on the lake.
- •CUTIn addition to the 8 or 10 seats at the bar, CUT – the Las Vegas iteration of Wolfgang Puck’s Beverly Hills steakhouse – offers plentiful seating in its lounge. The bartenders are extremely knowledgable about bourbon and whiskey, of which the bar has a staggering selection. They’re equally facile with classic cocktails, and can also make custom concoctions for you. In addition to the “rough cuts” menu of bar snacks, the full menu is available at the bar.
- •Mandarin BarThis place is the exception, and it’s pretty heavenly. No walk-in traffic (most people don’t realize the Mandarin exists, let alone know where it is or how to get there). Its floor-to-ceiling glass walls provide an astonishing view up and down the Strip. Tasteful drinks (and some nibbles) served in a refined environment. Best of all: you can actually reserve a table with no minimum or “bottle service” requirement.
