LasVegas.Net Magazine

This is the second issue of LasVegas.Net Magazine and welcome to our readers, subscribers and sponsors. The publisher, editors and staff thank you for a warm reception.

Despite economic trends and the distressing news all over the headlines, we believe wholeheartedly in the strength of Las Vegas' unique attractions, lifestyles and high-spirited fun. And we see our economy expanding across more industries, adding to our strong suits of entertainment and travel. Las Vegas and all its surrounding areas make the perfect destination for visitors and a lifetime experience for residents.

That is the first answer to why LasVegas.Net launched a new publication now. Las Vegas is a symbol for serious fun, no matter how rough times seem.

Our city has no shortage of interesting people, pets, wild events, wildlife and nature, charitable events, traditional celebrations, oddities and out-of-the-way places, and it's even renowned for having the highest number of places of faith per-capita in the U.S. It all makes terrific topics of interest for readers and creates opportunities for advertisers. So, that's another reason why we now publish LasVegas.Net Magazine.

From the unusual to the ordinary, our seasoned and off-the-beaten path writing, design and editorial team takes a new way of looking at the Las Vegas area. We live here and love it.

We encourage local economic growth and will help shoppers find super holiday gifts and services sourced from the USA, made and produced right here in Las Vegas. It's all in our upcoming November/December issue.

Our developing sections spotlight myriad topics from Las Vegas active seniors' lifestyles to vibrant singles' club scenes - and how they both make Las Vegas the place to come and stay!

Golfing is great, and we explore why it's better in Las Vegas. Find out about sensational sports, new cuisine to try, community development and social events, architectural exploration and the latest happenings on the Strip. Plus, read about places to get the best in fashions, health and beauty services. Anybody ready to try a new-style fitness workout? Read in this issue how women (and some bold men) are taking up pole dancing for fitness and fun.

And yes, we did receive comments on our inaugural issue's "Letter to the Editor," featuring  the posthumous insights of a gaming mogul. You see, LasVegas.Net Magazine thinks all views matter. We won't be surprised at what kind of letters we may find next in our Mailbox, from the facetious to the somber truth.

LasVegas.Net Magazine focuses on the things that matter most to our readers; that's what we will seek and deliver. So, let's build this together; tell us what you want more of - or less of - and that's what we will supply with each bimonthly issue.

This issue of LasVegas.Net Magazine also begins our publishing commitment to provide readers a view to how Southern Nevada is making strides in green, eco-friendly innovation from homes to corporations - and all the amazing business opportunities and personal responsibilities in between.

Of all the U.S. cities, Las Vegas is the one poised well to be a leader in a new economy that must provide alternative energy resources and ways to bring it to the public. We are, after all, the home of Southwest sunshine.

Parent company LasVegas.Net has successfully delivered information on its website in addition to providing Internet-related services proficiently to local residents and businesses for more than 10 years. LasVegas.Net Magazine's publisher, editors and staff are dedicated members of this wonderful community, and we continue to serve its residents, newcomers and our visiting guests.

You will find complimentary copies of LasVegas.Net Magazine distributed freely at offices, libraries and stores throughout Las Vegas, Green Valley/Henderson, North Las Vegas and other nearby areas. We also will direct deliver LasVegas.Net Magazine to you affordably.  

Thank you, and remember to drive safely with kids back at school and soon rushing for trick-or-treat, and have a fabulous fall!

From the Editors and Staff and All of Us,

Happy Holidays

Hello Vegas,

First and foremost, I would like to thank all of our readers for their magnanimous support and patience as we here at LasVegas.Net Magazine continue to establish ourselves as the premier voice of Las Vegas - a city that always has something to say. I would also like to extend our sincerest gratitude to all those ‘behind the scenes' who have so selflessly contributed their time and efforts during this process. You know who you are, and we couldn't have done it without you.

Now, let us get down to business. What a year, huh? The past 10 months have been characterized by many things: poorly-timed interruptions by Kanye West, Brett Favre refusing to go away, Obama's Presidential diplomacy over a couple of cold ones, and the one I know you're all sick of hearing about -- the dreary impact of a tumultuous and erratic economy.

The economy, the economy, the economy.

Luckily for us, the Vegas image hasn't suffered one bit. Travelers across the globe still see us as one of the greatest destinations in the world, and will continue to do so throughout this financial hiccup and for countless years after. The local business sector, on the other hand, has been dragged deep into doldrums, showing a 13.4% jobless rate in September. Construction and hospitality jobs continue to get slashed. Everyone is feeling the crunch. When the skies are as cloudy as they have been it can be hard to glimpse at the horizon, but we need to remember that we still have air in our lungs, and we also must have the confidence that little moments of happiness are right around the corner...

Oh, that's right! The holidays are coming up fast, and if I may make one request, I would ask that we all celebrate with a bit of extra reflection this year. It's easy to forget just how fortunate we are, and also what is truly most important in our lives - and no, it is not our iPhones.

Ultimately, friends, in this issue, as we always attempt to do, we present a comprehensive look into the Southern Nevada community and highlight the many astonishing aspects of our city that continue to make it a wonderful travel destination, as well as a great place to hang your hat. That is always our goal, and it truly is the meaning of community.

Stay classy Las Vegas and I'll see you in the New Year!

All the best,

Nick Bougie, Senior Editor
