Tuesday the Governor pleaded with Nevadans to voluntarily stay home for two weeks to get our coronavirus numbers under control. They hit over 1,500 new cases just yesterday alone. So I will share kewl things to do at home or in your car…once again.
The Hands Together Party
Volunteers in Medicine of Southern Nevada provides health care for locals without access to care. Boy, do we need that these days!
The charity typically has a gala every November to help fund the following year. No gala this year, natch. Instead, it’s a Zoom meeting.
Comedian Jeff Civilico hosts the one-hour event. Singer/songwriter Frankie Moreno is the guest entertainer.
The Zoom call is FREE but you do have to register to get the Zoom 411. And feel free to donate to the cause. The year is almost over so if you need a tax deduction, this is it!
Frankie Moreno is one of my favorite local artists. Two years ago his goal was to write and produce a new song every week. It happened. Then he played a concert at New York’s famed Carnegie Hall. Ah-maz-ing!
America saw him on “Dancing with the Stars” performing his own song “Tangerine Honey.” (This year I want Nev to win. But I digress.)
He has nine Top-Ten Billboard albums and 27 Top-10 singles. Twenty-four of them hit No. 1. He is the only artist to have six albums reach the Top 10 spot on the Billboard Charts in a 12-month period.
He plays piano as rackishly as Jerry Lee Lewis. He has a Broadway-worthy voice too.
The event is Sunday night at 5.
P.S. When shows are safely back in Las Vegas, I can’t wait to see Frankie. Yep, I joined the fan club.
Carpool Cinema at the Fashion Show Mall
The CDC warns shoppers to stay out of malls. So Fashion Show Mall on the Las Vegas Strip got creative and found another way to keep its customer coming.
Friday and Saturday nights the mall is hosting Carpool Cinema on the top of the North Parking Garage. (The one by Nordstrom.)
It’s a double feature. 6 pm features The Grinch. Then at 8:30 watch Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
Here’s the best part: Every car will receive swag bag with restaurant and retailer discounts that you can save for the day when it’s safe to redeem them. Something to look forward to.
Yes, you have to stay in your car. Yes, you have to wear a mask if you step out of your car.
Carpool Cinema is FREE but you have to register on EventBrite.
Here are two things I was going to suggest before the Governor’s plea.
FREE Admission Fridays
Cox Communications is funding Free Admission Friday throughout November. You can visit three local museums:
- Clark County Museum
- Las Vegas Natural History Museum
- Nevada State Railroad Museum (Boulder City)
I’ve only been to the Clark County Museum because it’s in Henderson, where I lived for 15 years before moving back to County. In my opinion the kewlest thing about this museum is the Heritage Street of Historic Homes. (What do expect from a Realtor?)
The Museum moved these homes to its grounds. My favorite is the Railroad Cottage, built between 1909-1911. There were 64 of these built to revive what was then the failing “Las Vegas Townsite.” Employees of the railroad could lease them for $18 a month.
It’s probably OK to go here since the homes are outside. But still.
Mark Giovi at the Italian American Club
The Italian American Club is determined to make life appear normal while complying with all Covid-19 state requirements.
Friday night Mark Giovi performs in the lounge that is part of the dining room. The singing starts at 7 and goes to on 11. Kent Foot of The Vegas Good Fellas performs Saturday night at the same time.
Giovi also performs next Friday November 20th too.
I first saw this talented singer when he was one of the original Las Vegas Tenors. His rendition of their signature song, Nights in White Satin, which he sang in Italian, still resonates with me.
He got a job in New York City and left Las Vegas for the gig. (He grew up in New Jersey.) When he got there, the club told him they changed their mind. Not one to give up, he returned to Las Vegas and is singing his heart out.
The CDC says don’t eat at restaurants. But if you’re going to gamble, you might as well here Giovi while you’re at it.
Happy World Kindness Day, Las Vegas.
Have a fun and safe week-end.
