Too Much of a Good Thing is Wonderful!

The beauty of living in Las Vegas at this time in its history is the fact that the city has been going through a cultural renaissance. With the positive trends in 18b Las Vegas' arts district, the building of the Smith Center for the Performing Arts at Symphony Park, the Springs Preserve, the construction of the Neon Museum, the art collection at City Center and the multitude of other positive developments one cannot complain that there is nothing to do culturally in Las Vegas. Goodness knows that I will be playing a juggling act tonight as soon as I leave the office so that I can go and support all the wonderful things that will be taking place in and around Downtown.

My evening will begin at the Springs Preserve with the last installment of Untold Stories about Las Vegas' past. Tonight's program will be a discussion about Las Vegas High School and those who attended classes there many years ago. Untold Stories Vegas High School Confidential begins at 6:30pm in the Desert Living Center on the campus of the Springs Preserve http://www.springspreserve.org/

In addition this evening is Preview Thursdays in the Arts District for the discerning crowd who do not like the masses of First Friday. The event begins at 6pm throughout 18b.

So you do not have an excuse not to come out and enjoy the evening and maybe just maybe you may run into me. If you do see me out and about please do not hesitate to say hello.

Don't forget to get enculturated!
