This offbeat, dark comedy follows John and Ludo, two hapless vacationers in Las Vegas, through a series of misadventures as their world collapses around them and their lives spiral downward into the seedy and treacherous underbelly of Sin City. As the result of a dangerous infatuation with a mysterious woman, this bad-luck and no-luck duo—in just twenty-four hours—find themselves hunted by the mob, FBI, six ferocious killers, police, and the Rat, a psychopathic ex-husband, in a world where nothing is as it seems. And from there, things go downhill—they’re broke, homeless, and wander the streets with no way to get out of town. Bickering every step of the way, they cross paths with eccentric and colorful characters inhabiting the shadows of Las Vegas casinos, strip clubs, and downtown streets. John and Ludo don’t quite know who is who and what is what as they desperately try to keep one step ahead of their pursuers and fulfill one very simple dream—get the hell out of Vegas.

Lost Las Vegas traces the cherished places in the city that time and the brutal forces of economics have swept aside before the National Register of Historic Places could save them from the wrecker's ball or, in the case of Las Vegas, before the Neon Boneyard can claim them.Organised chronologically starting with the earliest losses and ending with the latest, the book details the many hotels and casinos that failed to move with the times and got swept away for something bigger, better and brighter.Legendary names in the field of entertainment have come and gone - the Sands hotel featured many of the rapack in residence, but the casino is long gone. Howard Hughes and the mob featured heavily in Vegas history but neither could sustain their success for very long. Today, it is the showgirl who is under threat. That Vegas institution is under threat from the big setpiece shows such as Cirque du Soleil.Losses include: Arizona Club, El Portal Theater, Clark County Courthouse, Hotel Nevada, First State Bank, Las Vegas Rail depot, El Dorado Club, Old Ice House, Atomic Tourism, Helldorado on Fremont Street, The Green Shack, El Rancho Vegas, Hotel Last Frontier, Desert Inn, Sands, Sahara, The Thunderbird, The Mint, Royal Nevada, Stardust, Showboat, Hotel Biltmore, Dunes, Hacienda, Moulin Rouge, Tally Ho, Paddlewheel/Debby Reynold’s.

Lost in Las Vegas captures a woman's journey to some famous and not-so-famous locations throughout Downtown Las Vegas, with some brief history and untold stories mixed in. She travels with her most prized possessions: her fabulous wardrobe and vintage jewels.She wanders through the city dressed to resemble the era of each location, styled in some of my favorite designs from my women's eveningwear line, along with vintage accessories from my mother's closet.The process of making this book has been a labor of love for more than two years. The concept was sparked by my own journey, as well as by my fascination with the Rat Pack, Atomic and Glitter Gulch eras. I wanted to capture the rich Las Vegas history that is often overshadowed by its reputation as the entertainment capital of the world. I decided to share a humble side of Las Vegas from a local's perspective through my designs and art.I brushed up on my local history and took notes on some of the most memorable historical locations throughout Downtown. With my dog by my side, I scouted more than thirty locations, then narrowed them down to twenty-five, which are used as the backdrop for each photograph. All the locations were captured throughout a four-day photo shoot with a local team, all top talents in their fields.Lost in Las Vegas is a reminder that feeling lost isn't always a misfortune, that it is in such moments that we find ourselves. Our weaknesses become our strengths and our mistakes become our lessons. As you follow her journey, her story becomes your own, as we all have felt lost at some point in our lives.

Beneath the glitzy surface of the resorts and the seemingly cookie-cutter suburban sprawl of Las Vegas lies a vibrant and diverse ethnic life. People of varied origins make up the population of nearly two million and yet, until now, little mention of the city has been made in studies and discussion of ethnicity or immigration. The Peoples of Las Vegas: One City, Many Faces fills this void by presenting the work of seventeen scholars of history, political science, sociology, anthropology, law, urban studies, cultural studies, literature, social work, and ethnic studies to provide profiles of thirteen of the city’s many ethnic groups. The book’s introduction and opening chapters explore the historical and demographic context of these groups, as well as analyze the economic and social conditions that make Las Vegas so attractive to recent immigrants. Each group is the subject of the subsequent chapters, outlining migration motivations and processes, economic pursuits, cultural institutions and means of transmitting culture, involvement in the broader community, ties to homelands, and recent demographic trends.
