If you have not been to the beautiful desert oasis of 180 acres attraction located on the south side of Las Vegas now is the perfect time. It’s not only family friendly, it’s a great place to go alone or just with your significant other with tons of outdoor & indoor fun for just about anyone. The Preserves have been closed since March last year and will reopen March 19th. The state museum which is located at the preserve will also be opening on March 20th. There are timed entry tickets that start at 9am – 3pm with members having an hour early access to tickets at 8am. Indoor areas, including the Origen Museum, Gift Shop and Nature Exchange, remain temporarily closed. Masks are mandatory and capacity rules apply so you have must make a reservation. Tickets are just $5.00 it’s worth the trip!
Break out your quarentini’s Las Vegas is open for Memorial Day weekend. If you thought the beach club wouldn’t survive your wrong; they have pivoted into more of lounges. Safety being the number 1 priority in this new world, new Vegas has virtual menus, masked bikini cocktail waitresses, virtual pool tours if you want to see before you go and limited capacity cabanas. Yes we are sad to see the packed cabanas with people standing on couches but for now you will be limited to 6 guests per cabana. You can no longer walk up to the bar and order, but relax you wanted to stay by the pool anyway. As of now there are no big name DJ’s scheduled as dancing is not encouraged. The distinguished “guest list” may also be extinct as reservations are required and general admission will be an exception rather than a rule. If you have hit up your usual promoter you might find out they have left Vegas for greener pastures, or had a recent career change. Prices range from $400 for a day bed to $2000 for a grand cabana.

Heres some cool things to do at home for NYE safely social distanced and COVID free!
1 – Make a Charcuterie & Watch a Television Celebration. I am geared towards Carson Daily’s but pick your poison plenty of things on tv to watch. A charcuterie is a fun way to have an appetizer. Place an assorted amount of cheeses, meats, grapes, apples, peanuts, and crackers on your middle table in your living room and hang out!
2- Dont forget the Champagne & Party favors! DO IT! This is what we have all been waiting for, head to your local grocery store and grab some festive glasses and party hats. Dont forget the champagne for midnight with your sweetheart or yourself.
3- Make Chocolate covered strawberries. These are so easy and so fun to make, grab your favorite chocolate dip from any store, and if you dont want to do that you can make your own easily, melt some chocolate add a little butter and BOOOM, Done!
4- Grab some fresh lobster and steaks. Head to the butcher!! It is worth it to have a great steak and a decent lobster. If you have an air fryer/instant pot even better they are quick; add a baked potato and brocolli and BOOM done. Looks like a lot of work but so easy!
5 – Amazon music and lighting. Hit the lights and tell Alexa to play your favorite hits. If you’ve followed traditions use your christmas lighting to add a special romance or party scene.
