98: Viva Las Vegas! Part I

DIRECT DOWNLOAD  /  ITUNES  /  RSS 

 

May luck be a lady tonight! We're actually in Las Vegas this week - so be prepared for a jackpot of shiny facts about gambling, hotels, games, Hoover Dam, and more. Chris gets clever with a hotel name puzzle quiz, and Karen checks in to ridiculously themed Vegas hotel that (luckily) never got built. Find out what those cherries and BARs on slot machines really mean, and Dana's dips into a grab bag of trivia bites about this sparkly town. And see if you know your gamblin' games.

ALSO: The Tonight Show top list, and the hotels of our dreams

RUNTIME: 50 minutes 55 seconds

WWF, National Lampoon's reference, and slot machines? Solid episode.

In reference to your question about themed resorts, I'll throw in my two cents and suggest a Hobbit/Lord Of The Rings theme. I don't gamble or drink, but I would enjoy staying there.
