July 29, 2015 at 2:23 PM | by | Comment (1)

Alright then, you've heard the news but don't be too sad as we are still publishing through Friday.

Last week, EastCoastGambler (who you can keep up with at EdgeVegas.com) was asked about where to watch the first weekend of March Madness in 2016 in Las Vegas. Here's what he has to say:

We’re so far out from the NCAA college basketball tournament that there aren’t many specifics I can offer. That said, it’s never too early to start planning, so let’s get to it! Here are the dates for March Madness in 2016.

March 13th - Selection Sunday
March 15-16 - First Round (AKA Play-in games)
March 17-20 - Second Round (First weekend)
March 25, 27 - Regionals (The Sweet Sixteen & The Elite Eight)
April 2 - National Semifinals (The Final Four)
April 4 - 2016 NCAA Basketball Championship Game

There have been plenty of new additions to the Fremont East scene for us to crow about. Want a new Urban Market? You got it. A Downtown gay nightlife event? Round two is coming up. An assortment of new restaurants and nightclubs? Ta-da, they're everywhere. And right under our nose is a sorta-free weekly screening of fun films that apparently nobody felt the need to tell us about. For the price of a drink, you can experience "Boozy Movies".

April 29, 2015 at 5:49 PM | by | Comments (0)

It’s a tad early to be discussing Halloween (what are we saying? It's never too early!), but this year will mark the 20th anniversary of the Fetish & Fantasy Halloween Ball. To celebrate, they are taking the festivities one step further by introducing the Fetish And Fantasy Lifestyle Expo.

The three-day convention (October 29-31) promises to showcase all things adult and erotic. There will be a variety of performers including fetish models and theatrical acts, and a multitude of products, clothing, and toys on display. There will also be health and sexuality experts and educators. It will take place at the Hard Rock Hotel as well as at the nearby Alexis Park hotel. Anyone open-minded (and over 18) can attend and let their freak flag fly explore their sexuality. And, if you're already wondering what to wear, you can wear street clothes or break out the fetish or fantasy attire. Even lingerie will be acceptable.

Get Ready For The Big Sports Weekend With These NFL Draft Parties

April 28, 2015 at 4:29 PM | by | Comments (8)

This weekend is all about Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao and the Kentucky Derby for sports fans in Las Vegas. Before we get to the fight and the big race, the NFL will begin its draft of college players into the league this Thursday, April 30.

Football is the most popular sport to bet on and the NFL draft makes for entertaining television. If there's one thing we've learned over the year, it's that sportsbooks are always open to doing something (anything) related to football. Enter the NFL Draft which isn't more than a television show without any legal US gambling (you can wager on the NFL draft online, but not in Nevada casinos.)
