Programming Notes For The Mid Mod Madness And Mondo Lounge Weekend Of Events

Morelli_Sketch_1I’m very proud to be one of the corporate sponsors – as well as having been on the planning committee with the fabulous folks at Classic Las Vegas and the Architecural and Decorative Arts Society of Las Vegas

 

William Krisel AIA is the guest of honor for the Mid Mod Madness Weekend 

SPECIAL guest of honor is Mr. William Krisel – noted architect of more than 40,000 mid century modern homes and commercial buildings in California. Approximately 300 of his designs are in the Paradise Palms Neighborhood of Las Vegas. We’ve posted the movie trailer before, but here it is again.

Design On Screen is responsible for this and other documentaries about noted regional architects of the modernist movement. I’m featured in the film from when I organized the Las Vegas segment.

The Las Vegas Premier of this documentary is Saturday Night October 23 as part of the Mid Mod Madness weekend. Mr. Krisel will also be on the 1pm Saturday afternoon panel; will attend the Friday evening cocktail party at the Morelli house; and will do a private Q and A following the movie. The complete schedule of events and links to buy tickets are in this post, or scroll down several posts.

A special show “Remains of the Day” is on exhibit at the Morelli House

“Remains of the Day” is an exhibit featuring photographs of mid-century modern buildings in Las Vegas that have escaped the wrecking ball and still exist as a reminder of our city’s rich mid-century architectural heritage. The Nevada State Museum Las Vegas has loaned Junior League selected images from its archives, most of which come from the collection of renowned photographer Jay Florian Mitchell. Mitchell moved to Las Vegas from New York in the mid-1950s, and for the following 25 years carefully documented the growth and development of his adopted home. The Nevada State Museum Las Vegas, located in Lorenzi Park, is currently showcasing a special exhibit on Mid-Century Modern Las Vegas which includes several dozen of Mitchell’s most distinguished images, as well as period domestic and aesthetic artifacts.

Friends of Classic Las Vegas (FCLV) and the Architectural and Decorative Arts Society of Las Vegas (ADAS) are pleased to announce a weekend of programming devoted to Las Vegas’ rich heritage of midcentury modern architecture and design, October 22-24, 2010.

 

As the Las Vegas community looks for ways to celebrate its rich and exciting history with residents and visitors alike, its significant architectural resources should not be overlooked.  MidMod Marvels is intended to make the citizens of Las Vegas aware of the architectural gems that are in their own backyard.

 

The event will highlight a number of historic neighborhoods and businesses whose architecture was designed by or influenced by midcentury modern designs, including the work of architects Wayne McAllister (El Cortez and Fremont Hotels), William Krisel (Paradise Palms), Paul Revere Williams (Berkley Square, La Concha) and Welton Beckett (McCarran Airport) as well as local architects like Walter Zick, Harris Sharp, Hugh Taylor and others.

 

MidMod Marvels is an opportunity for participants to immerse themselves in a design era that has, in recent years, resurfaced in popular culture.  Tapping into this current trend and linking it to its historical roots in Las Vegas will ensure a fun, educational, and exciting event with broad appeal.

Mesquite Club To Hold Rummage Sale

Mesquite Club - Las Vegas Nevada“Established in 1911, the Mesquite Club is the oldest non-profit women’s club in Nevada. The club’s formal debut took place just six years after the emergence of early Las Vegas on building lots put up for auction by the railroad in 1905.

The Mesquite Club took it’s name from the indigenous mesquite trees which, at that time, provided most of the shade for the Southern Nevada desert.Once established, the club immediately set to work addressing the civic, cultural and general welfare needs of the community.” (from the Mesquite Club website).

Their clubhouse, at 702 St. Louis Avenue achieved historic property designation from the City of Las Vegas in 2009. Additionally, they’ve just finished the first remodel and updating in many years. In this post from January, 2009, I showed a few interior photos from before the remodel. I was excited to see that the decorative concrete block wall in the entryway was preserved. If you’ve never seen the inside, make sure you stick your head in the door when you’re there.

Mesquite Club Rummage and Parking Lot Sale In Downtown Las Vegas

Rummage Sale FlyerIt’s time once again for their annual Rummage Sale on Saturday, March 27th from 8am till 2pm. Should be a great place to do some spring time bargain hunting. Maybe you’ll even find some real treasure, after all – many of their members are from some of the oldest families in Las Vegas.

 You can rent a parking space yourself if you’d like to sell some of your stuff, or donate items for them to sell. Details are in the flyer.

There’s A Birthday Party For Jack LeVine After First Friday At The Downtown Cocktail Room in Downtown Las Vegas

It was a going to be a surprise, but the cat got out of the bag. There’s a ton of you out there who aren’t known by the people putting on the party, but that doesn’t mean you aren’t invited!.

If you’re in Downtown Las Vegas on Friday Night for First Friday, then stop in at the Downtown Cocktail Room after 9:30 pm. Or just head to downtown Las Vegas for some late night partying.

Normally, Jack LeVine pays no mind to birthdays, but after the heart attack and all that, I’m HAPPY to celebrate one, and grateful to friends for throwing me a party. Stop by if you can.

Downtown Cocktail Room 111 S. Las Vegas Blvd (first door south of Fremont Street) Downtown Las Vegas!

Jack LeVine was talking to another blogger the other day about how difficult it is to get people to comment, regardless of the topic. Maybe this time?

It would make the SEO Gods so happy. I’ll tell you what that means in a day or 2.

Hispanic Museum Of Nevada “Viva Las Vegas” Exhibit Opening

From the desk of Mr. Brian Paco Alvarez:

 

“This past Monday I had the pleasure of recruiting our very own Steve Christmas in assisting me in the installation of the Las Vegas News Bureau Exhibition “Viva Las Vegas” at the Hispanic Museum of Nevada. The exhibition features 25 memorable images of famous Latino entertainers from the News Bureau archives. Steve is a great exhibit Preparator and I plan on recruiting him many more times! Thanks Steve!

 

The opening of the exhibition will be on Thursday, February 7th at 6PM. The Hispanic Museum of Nevada is located at the Embarq offices at 330 S. Valley View Boulevard across from the Springs Preserve.”

Latinos Setting the Stage

 

The Latino experience in Southern Nevada began after Mexico won independence from Spain in 1821. Shortly after in 1829, Rafael Riviera, a scout for trader Antonio Armijo, became the first European to visit what is now the Las Vegas Valley in the great quest to establish the Santa Fe Trail between New Mexico and Southern California. These early expeditions by traders, couriers and emigrants would build the foundations in which the great cities of the region would develop their rich history and colorful culture. The very name Las Vegas comes from the Spanish word for “the meadows.”

 

These early explorations would establish Latinos as part of the American experience and would help pave the way for the great entertainment heritage that later developed in Las Vegas.

 

The Stage is Set

 

During the 1940s and 50s the American music scene pulsated with the rhythms of Latin music. Latin dance was all the rage such as the Argentinean Tango, the Cuban and Puerto Rican Rumba, Cha Cha, Mambo and Salsa. The Merengue from the Dominican Republic, the Cumbia from Colombia and the Bossa Nova from Brazil also took center stage. American radio stations flooded the airwaves with Latin music and Latin entertainers regularly played the famed stages of Las Vegas.

 

The first nod to Latin entertainers in Las Vegas occurred at the opening of the Last Frontier in 1942. Inside was the Carillo Bar named after Latino actor Leo Carillo, who starred as the famous sidekick of the film and comic book series the Cisco Kid. It was not until the opening of the Flamingo Hotel a few years later that Las Vegas was graced with the most famous of all Latino entertainers, Xavier Cugat. Cugat, who was born in Catalonia, Spain, immigrated with his family to Cuba at the age of 5 and later to the United States, is noted by many to have had more to do with the infusion of Latin music into the United States than any other musician. Cugat introduced Abbe Lane, Carmen Miranda and Charo to Las Vegas. Cugat was married to all three entertainers at various times of his life.

 

In the late 1940s, a Cuban named Jack Cortez introduced the entertainment guide titled “Fabulous Las Vegas,” which listed all major acts in Las Vegas. Famous early Latin entertainers such as Carmen Miranda, Desi Arnaz and Tito Guizar were featured in the guide.

 

Today, Las Vegas is world-renowned for its rich entertainment history and its dynamic live music scene. Latino entertainers continue to play a major role in the development of the destination’s culture and music. Most recently (in November 2007), Las Vegas hosted the Latin GRAMMY® Awards, which celebrate excellence in Latin Music. Some of the hottest acts in Latin music today performed at the awards ceremony, which was broadcast throughout North, Central and South America.

Next Weekend’s Local Party

I hope those of you that came out to the Aruba last Friday for the open bar/swing dancing/944/Racket Magazine/art exhibition party (yes it’s a malleable venue) had a blast. If you missed the fun, you can check out a great review of the event up on Casa Del Soul Records’ web site.

Just so this is up for those of you who live in the area, but only check in once a week or so to get all the posts since last time in one sitting; (please let me show you How RSS Feeds Work!) Here is another really cool free event going on at the Aruba – Next weekend, Feb. 9th.

Aruba las vegas event Feb. 9th

The Aruba is located just behind John S. Park on Las Vegas Blvd. Just south of Charleston. It is a true Vintage hotel and new management has an appreciation for the history of the building.

Downtown Las Vegas Music Scene is Flourishing

While Jack, Pam, Paco, Susan & I enjoyed a rather intimate Lo-Pro at our favorite bar Downtown Cocktail Room last night, the Fremont music flyer fairy was hard at work.  Upon finally leaving I came back to my car, parked on Carson to find evidence that things are indeed alive & kicking downtown.

Downtown music

While we’re happy to see things going strong and regular pedestrian traffic in the Entertainment District picking up, we’re getting word there are some great things picking up steam a little further South as well. 

The Aruba Hotel  located just South of Charleston on 1215 Las Vegas Blvd. S. has had a recent change in management and the Club Aruba and Thunderbird Lounge venues in this vintage hotel have some interesting events taking place.

Wednesdays at the Aruba (Tropical) are now becoming the staple Latin night in the area, and packing the house weekly.  The monthly First Friday after party is apparently one of the hottest downtown. 

Every Friday (except the first) they host a Swing Dance night with free lessons from 8–9pm and then just full on swingin’ starts around 10 pm. 

Aruba swings

There’s also a larger block of free Swing lessons from 6–8pm on Sundays in the Thunderbird Lounge. 

You can check out the Aruba Swings Myspace for more info.

 

 

 

 

 

 

There’s word this vintage and versatile venue may soon see some more exciting changes in January & we’ll keep you up to date as the late night debauchery develops! 

As a downtown resident living closer to the Arts District than Fremont, I’m very excited to see some great things going on in the area that are very accessible to those of us in the Huntridge/John S. Park/18 b/ & L’Octaine areas(yes, we get to be our own area). I hope you stop in check out the cool vintage vibe in the Aruba.  Oh… everything at the bar is buy one get one until 6pm every day. Old aruba

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Too bad it’s right on the way home from work, huh?

Atomic Age Alliance Party Big Hit

I had an awesome time (did we really not leave the awesome Swank Pad until almost 11?!) Anyone in the Las Vegas area reading this blog who hasn’t yet come out to hang with the Atomic Age Alliance and just appreciate cool architecture, great-natured & diversely eclectic people, & the mid-century lifestyle… Get out & hang with some of the nicest people I’ve seen in one room downtown!

PB224222

 

 

 

 

 

 

There was a cool re-cap of the Alliance’s growth & accomplishments over the last year and a projection of all the great projects & cool stuff you need to know more about in the upcoming year.  Then, of course there was lots of food & wine.  I discovered ‘mold wine’ whoa. These people know how to party.  Such a diverse crowd of teachers, writers, lawyers, musicians, tech-gurus, anthropologists, radio personalities & just about everything else you could think of left nothing to be desired in the way of conversation.  I’ll be back for the January meeting, I hope to see you there!

The Very Vintage Vegas Team (l-r) Jack LeVine, Susan Dean, Mary Alderman, Steve Christmas, Brian Paco Alvarez, and Pam Kowalski 

 

 

 

 

 

Susan’s not allowed to be in anymore pictures (we’re kidding Susan), & I’m not allowed to tell you why these pictures are dimensionally challenged.  Let’s just leave it we all had an amazing time, & can’t wait to join Mary Margaret & Cary Stratton, Josh & the rest of the AAA Crew again soon!  Big huge thanks go out to Scott & Heidi for hosting the shindig, love the place!

Dust Gallery

Dust Gallery will hold a reception for Venske & Spanle on Friday, December 14, from 6–8pm

This sounds intriguing!

“Our interest lies in the development of a parallel universe of entities made out of stone.
In this show at DUST gallery, On It, we give an overlook of the different species.
There are the helotrophs, which are only complete with an appliance or a person. They are occupying their ‘host’ to be a full sculpture…
The schrumpels rely on the helotrophs since they need the space to be represented as they are.
Each of the orophytes (oro = gold; phyt = greek for species) stands in golden individuality.
In the ‘family’ of the gumpfots each one of them seems to grow out of their original shape and forms very different characters.
The smurfs are, so far, the largest population of sculptures. Each one of them has a different character, but seems to be like one cell plankton. They are widely spread over the globe (Australia, Europe, the Americas) and are a growing community…”
-Venske & Spänle
