B.B. King’s Blues Restaurant & Club will be closing at the Mirage on Nov. 18 2012.  The owner of the restaurant filed for Chapter 11 in 2011.  Since that time the Restaurant and club has not stayed current and still owes the Mirage $114,000 in unpaid debt.

A court ruled that The Mirage was able to keep the money that was billed to the guests room in-order to pay-back the debt. The room charge collection has not been enough to pay back the debt and the Beale Street Blues Company Las Vegas LLC, has said there isn’t enough cash flow to keep BB King’s at the Mirage from closing.

McCarran Airport Increasing Parking Rates

The economy parking at McCarran International Airport has been increased from $8 to $10.  Clark Department of Aviation states that the cost of the shuttle-bus service was more expensive to operate.

There was talk of building a parking garage, but the upfront cost of that was too expensive and running a shuttle service was going to be cheaper in the long run.

The airport is not going to close the lot until a resolution for the employee parking is figured out. McCarren Airport information – Tim O’Reiley at

Two months every year the Traub’s residence in Anthem Nevada becomes an amazing tribute to Halloween. With animatronics and motion activated statues this four-bedroom and bathroom houses comes to life. In a recent interview with the residents of this house they reveal that during this time there is not a single white light bulb in the house. The entire house is stripped down and replaced with a red or orange bulb.

This display has been going on for three years now and gets bigger and bigger each year.

Vegas cabbie finds, returns $221,510, gets $2,000 reward

las vegas taxi

From Yahoo:

A Las Vegas taxi driver found $221,510 while cleaning and vacuuming out his van last month.

Adam Woldemarim, the driver, discovered the cash stuffed in a soft laptop case that was left between the seats of the Virgin Valley Cab vehicle. Woldemarim turned it in, then was lucky enough to be rewarded with $2,000, about a 1% tip for his services. Well one way to look at it is; Adam must of been real glad his wife made him read these vacuum reviews, which in turn made him clean his van in time, before a client scored the cash!

The winner had just won big at the Wynn and forgotten the cash in the case on the way to the airport. All good deeds go rewarded in this case!

‘Pawn Stars’ Sued — I Discovered You … and You SCREWED Me

Rick, Corey, the Old Man and Chumlee … are all getting their asses sued by their ex-manager, who claims he discovered the “Pawn Stars” and made them famous … only to get stabbed in the back.

The man behind the lawsuit is Wayne Jefferies — who claims he found the guys from Gold & Silver Pawn back in 2007 and got them a reality TV show deal with A&E and the History Channel … after Rick had struck out in the past.

Jefferies claims things were going great for years — with the show killing it in the ratings and the guys all cutting various endorsement deals … including credit cards, slot machines, books and even an energy drink.

But according to the suit, things fell apart earlier this year .. when network honchos became upset over a story Jefferies claims he leaked to TMZ. The story detailed how the “Pawn Stars” cast was blindsided when they learned A&E had commissioned a “Cajun Pawn Stars” spinoff.

In his suit, Jefferies claims network execs pressured the “Pawn Stars” cast to cut ties with Jefferies … which they did.

Jefferies is now suing the “Pawn Stars” guys for breach of contract … and he’s also suing A&E, the History Channel and various execs for interfering with his management deals.

Jefferies is asking for unspecified damages. Calls to the Pawn Stars and the networks have not been returned.
