Scheduling Conflicts In The Downtown Urban Core Of Las Vegas

Scheduling conflicts can be a huge sign of success. They can also lead to a roller coaster ride of excitement and disappointment. I’m sure I’m not the only one. For example, I ended up working last night. Normally First Thursday is a night out for me. I missed it all – disappointment. I took a listing and wrote an offer instead – excitement!

Simultaneously, we had art openings for Leslie Rowland at Tinoco’s and  Brett Wesley Gallery at SohoLofts; All The Galleries were previewing; Untold stories was going on at the Springs Preserve. I’m told that ALL of the events were well attended.

There seems to be TOO much going on. Regular reader and friend Brian Paco Alvarez raised the subject of trying to get the history stuff scheduled for early in the week, and leave the art stuff for later. How to coordinate that? We’re going to get people to talk about it. Maybe there’s a way, since there’s so much overlap of interest.

The alternative music scene usually starts pretty late at places like the Beauty Bar, and Bunkhouse, but tonight’s going to be one of those Roller Coaster rides. Fremont Street Experience’s “Summer of 69” series features Janis Joplins original band, Big Brother and the Holding Company, BUT it’s also First Friday. What to do? What to do?

The point is, is that we’ve got a bustling, busy, ever expanding art, music, history, and culture machine in the URBAN CORE of Las Vegas. It’s pumping out events, concerts, art happenings, panel discussions, book signings, plays, music, and all kinds of fun things to do. The trick now isn’t finding out about what “The Machine” is offering…..the trick is making the time to catch it all.

No wonder so many people are are abandoning suburbia and moving back into the Urban Core of Las Vegas.
