Weird Las Vegas and Nevada; Your Alternative Travel Guide
by Joe Oesterle
Book Picture
Billed as Your Alternative Travel Guide to Sin City and the Silver State, this profusely illustrated book covers local legends, ancient mysteries, bizarre beasts, and the like. Where else but Las Vegas, for example, will you find a place that names its highways after extraterrestrials, where mobsters are city fathers, and where Elvis—or a reasonable facsimile of him—hangs out on every street corner. The authors explored the Coffin House in Pahrump, NV—and made it out alive -- searched for the river of black gold; watched rocks move all by themselves at Little Bonnie Claire Playa,; and tracked down some very odd legends, like the one about the eerie dead body under the hotel mattress. A fun book for sure and a great gift for the Vegas fan. 252 pages, illustrated, hardbound, 2007.

  Poker Pros will join Neil for a wildly entertaining No-Limit Texas Hold ‘Em Poker Tournament, benefiting The Skylar Neil Memorial Fund, an organization which has raised millions to support innovative cancer, leukemia, and AIDS research.

Seating for the tournament is limited to the first 150 entrants. The tournament buy-in is $500, plus a $50 registration fee. Re-buys and an add-on will be offered during play. Players will vie for a guaranteed cash prize pool of $50,000, and payouts will be made to the final table of ten.

Participants and members of the public are invited to visit Hard Rock Hotel & Casino's new ‘Poker Lounge' throughout the day to bid on an amazing collection of unique memorabilia from the worlds of music, sports and entertainment, up for silent auction. Beginning at 3:00pm, Vince will join adult film superstars, poker greats and Hollywood celebrities for our cocktail welcome reception. Tournament play will then commence at 4:00pm.

Following the tournament, go 'back stage' with Vince and others at the VIP After Party in Hard Rock Hotel & Casino's Wasted Space. Bid on one of a kind items at the live auction including some of Vince's personal gear and memorabilia. Access to the VIP After Party requires a donation to The Skylar Neil Foundation of $100.00 (for non-tournament players) and space is limited.

All proceeds from the poker tournament and charity auctions will benefit The Skylar Neil Foundation, established in 1995 by Vince to honor his daughter Skylar who passed away from cancer.

Tournament pre-registration is strongly encouraged, and VIP After Party reservations are required.
