How long have you lived here and where did you move from?
I moved to Vegas four years ago from Arizona. I traded one desert for another.
What do you find unique about this town?
The concentration of creative and talented people. There is a lot of incredible things happening both on and off The Strip.
Craziest Vegas story you care to share?
I was performing at the Mirage pool on a summer night, the stage had terrible lighting but the pool was totally lit up, so to find my light I ended up in the pool in full drag! Luckily it was to “California Girls” and I was already in a swim suit!
Where do you eat in Vegas at night?
I love the Golden Steer for the classic Vegas vibe and Nora’s Italian is a close second.
Best place to see the sexy people?
The day club pool parties, better than a nightclub because you get to see the merchandise instead of mystery shopping at a nightclub!
What Vegas tradition haven’t you done yet?
I have yet to buy an over-the-shoulder frozen drink and walk The Strip to play tourist, I wonder if I would make it.
Best tip for tourists.
Hydrate and nap. You’re going to need it to keep up with us!
What show have you seen in Las Vegas stands out in your memory and why?
Other than “Divas,” of course, last week I went to my 50th show on The Strip, and after seeing that many, Cirque du Soleil’s “Ka” stands out the most. It’s a must-see spectacle!
Where do you see the most art in Las Vegas?
Bellagio has a great gallery and brings in some unique collections, and stop by the Conservatory on your way in.
Best place to be single and mingle?
The Chandelier Bar at the Cosmopolitan. It’s a sexy atmosphere and a very mixed crowd, something and someone for everyone.
Hidden treasure in Las Vegas is:
Herbs & Rye. The cocktails are delicious and it’s a great place for friends to chat, or take a date.
