PEREZ HILTON -Breaking The Rules (and making some new ones) at Chippendales

The nation’s foremost social media “influencer” manages to make the outlandish seem easy in his guest-hosting stint… I was one of many who were shocked when Chippendales announced notoriously-outspoken Perez Hilton as their next celebrity host.

Thunder From Down Under: Time To Toss Out This Outback Throwback

Long-running male revue needs to desperately up its game plan… Maybe it’s just an off-season phenomenon. Perhaps it’s the temporary venue being utilized during their theater renovation. But more likely, being covered in dust has more to do with neglect than construction debris. Whatever the reason, Excalibur’s THUNDER FROM DOWN UNDER is a relic in … Continue reading “Thunder From Down Under: Time To Toss Out This Outback Throwback”

Teresa Van – Trainer to the Stars

Dynamic inspiration keeps Sin City’s top performers in peak condition… Reno NV is called “The Biggest Little City In The World”.

Find Your Inner Ariel at MERMAID SCHOOL

Weekend childrens’ classes are Westgate’s latest “outside the box”… Going through my daily round of press release emails is a lot like attacking the pile of presents under the Christmas tree.
