The attraction went bankrupt, was sold for cents on the dollar and closed. But Bloom didn't cut and run. He fought the lawsuits, and today, he not only has put his legal problems to rest but is vowing to repay his investors, even though he's not legally obligated to do so.

  • Are Las Vegas foreclosures really affecting real estate market?

    Masoud Saberzadeh
    8 Aug 2014 | 10:42 am
    291 out of the 3196 Las Vegas homes, condos and town-homes sold in July, 2014 using a Las Vegas Realtor have been Las Vegas foreclosures or bank owned real estate. Foreclosures market share of total properties sold is about 9.1% and these did not sell at big discounts. We do a short discussion about the effect of Nevada laws on Las Vegas foreclosures and how assembly bill 300, which made it far easier for banks to at least start the foreclosure process, has failed to produce the avalanche of foreclosures hitting the Las Vegas real estate market which some have been warning about for the…

    The median price for Las Vegas residential real estate has gone up by about 15% in the past year and keeps appreciating more than 1.2% per month.

In this video we discuss Las Vegas residential real estate inventory as of July, 27, 2014 and sales numbers and median prices for Las Vegas homes, condos and town homes for June, 2014.

This is very important in the current Las Vegas real estate market as the market has turned and prices are going down and it all starts with your listing agents visit to you home or condo.

    There's no way she knows how the "Asian time machine" in front of her works. Radar is reporting that, for the second year in a row, Kim Kardashian's favorite charity to donate her eBay auction earnings is...Kim Kardashian. This contradicts earlier reports that the majority goes to further research and development of Photoshop. Using eBay tax documents, the site estimates that only 10 percent of her eBay charity auction revenue goes to her her mother's Life Change Community Church while an estimated $400,000 goes in Kim's pocket. This should really come as a slap in the face to the people who…

But that doesn't mean MGM was done entirely with the longtime brand. Not with so much tasty, tasty meat left on those bones. In a survey sent to MLife members, the company asked a series of questions like how important certain nightlife aspects were to you, what clubs you've been to lately--the usual polling fare. But then things got specific. What MGM failed to ask, though, was "Did you see Steven…

    Breaking News: Alonzo Bodden is hilarious! Ok, well maybe it’s not breaking news if you’ve already heard of Alonzo Bodden but consider it fact if this is your first encounter with his name. The Last Comic Standing winner has had a busy Just For Laughs festival taking part in the All Star Show at Club soda and hosting his own hour long show titled “News is Not News” at the Place des Arts. The crowd showed its confusion as Alonzo apologized for potential technical difficulties as he managed his own laptop on the screen and manually changed between different images and…

    19 Aug 2014 | 11:00 am
    September 2014 in Las Vegas may as well be known as Las Vegas Beer Month. We checked the google and there isn’t an official Las Vegas Beer Month so we’re starting it right here and right now. Not only are there are three beer festivals in Las Vegas this September but Oktoberfest begins in the middle of the month. Everything in Las Vegas is a little bit different and Oktoberfest gets started here just a little earlier than the rest of the world. Hofbräuhaus begins Oktoberfest on September 13th while the actual Oktoberfest begins the following day in Germany. Oktoberfest will continue…

One of the best varieties that the hotels in Las Vegas offer is in dining. There’s fine dining if you’re in the mood for the best meal of your life. There’s casual dining for those of us looking for a good sit down meal. Lastly many of the hotels have a food court for the event in which we want a quick and inexpensive bite to eat. Food courts offer the flexibility to eat on site or grab a bite and head to your hotel room.
  • Cool Down at a Las Vegas Water Park

    6 Aug 2014 | 11:19 am
    One of the many reasons people visit Las Vegas is to enjoy the heat. It gets hot in Las Vegas but generally people don’t want to “beat the heat”. Rather visitors in Las Vegas are looking for something to best experience the heat when it’s 115 in the shade. In the past two water parks have opened to the delight of tourists and locals alike. Both Wet ‘n’ Wild and Cowabunga Bay offer a fun time in the sun and an escape from the Vegas Strip. Both water parks are similar concepts and open to children of most ages but both are different. Just like the casinos and cacti in Las Vegas no…

    It’s an exciting time for Las Vegas. Downtown Vegas is adding new restaurants and bars almost every week. The Vegas Strip is renovating just about every casino that hasn’t been touched in the past 10 years.

  • Taking the High Roller for a Spin

    Abby Tegnelia
    20 Aug 2014 | 11:31 am
    I sort of miss the themed hotels that once ruled Vegas. After all, that’s what makes the Strip unique – the castle, pyramid, and the Eiffel Tower. But now Las Vegas is in a period of sleek modernism. Pretty, yes, but it makes for sort of a bland landscape. So how excited was I when the High Roller went up! Taking my dutiful “Strip view” shot from my balcony at Cosmopolitan in April, I was absolutely thrilled that there was an enormous wheel in the center of my frame. It harkens back to the days of whimsy, and in true Vegas form of “newer and better,” the High Roller is the highest…
  • Top 10 Restaurant Week Meals

    Three Square’s Restaurant Week is here upon us again, and once again we are given the chance to let our pleasure of a prixe-fixe meal develop into the assistance of thousands of hungry people in Nevada. For every set-price dinner or lunch you enjoy, between $4-$6 goes to the Three Square Food Bank, but not all meals are created equal. As Restaurant Week gets more and more popular, more and more restaurants sign on, but a few shine head and shoulders above the rest.

    13 Aug 2014 | 1:25 pm
    Nothing is more exciting to Las Vegas than the grand opening of a new hotel. The SLS is just days away – and the whole town is in a frenzy! Itching for a big party, Vegas hasn’t had an opening like this one (thanks a lot, recession) since Cosmopolitan opened in December 2010. Per tradition, the grand opening will begin in the evening with a VIP party, on August 22. At 12:01 am, when the gambling license kicks in, the public will be invited to join in – and start breaking in the gaming tables! The SLS is opening on the site of the former Sahara, one of the most famous landmarks in Las…
  • Top 10 Burgers

    The gourmet burger trend in dining hit Las Vegas a couple years ago and, while a few burger joints have come and gone, the trend appears to be stronger than ever with several celebrity chef’s recently throwing their hat into the scene. It appears that every hotel feels the need to have a restaurant that is focused on making high quality (and high priced) burgers and there are even gourmet burger restaurants for the locals to enjoy spread out around town. Gourmet burgers can also be found where you would least expect them. On this list you’ll see a great burger in a pizza restaurant in…

    Sure, most hit up Sin City to drop their hard-earned bucks into the mesmerizing blinking and chirping slot machines, bottles of overpriced booze and saliva-inducing culinary treats from some of the best chefs in the world. But! Wait! There is (gasp) culture in a town built on chance. Still with us? Yes, Las Vegas has museums. Real museums. With exhibits. And family stuff. And, uh, even some sex stuff. (We knew that might peak your interest.) Here are 10 of the best! The Neon Museum Photo Credit: The Neon Museum Bands like The Killers have used the artifacts here for background in their music…
