Electric shuttle buses would offer free rides in downtown Las Vegas by 2017

Visitors, workers and residents could soon have the option to hitch a free ride in downtown Las Vegas from a small fleet of electric vehicles.

The Las Vegas City Council is expected to vote Wednesday on a contract with The Free Ride, a Florida-based company that operates free shuttle services in six- or seven-seat electric vehicles on-demand through a mobile application and sometimes on a fixed-route basis.

In Las Vegas, the shuttle service would circulate in a four-mile area of downtown.

PBR moves into the Strip’s newest mega-venue

2016 has been more than a banner year for the Professional Bull Riders organization, which charges into Las Vegas this week for the 23rd year of the PBR World Finals.

By most accounts, this is the most successful season in the history of the year-round, rodeo-spinoff league that began in 1992. Its TV ratings on CBS are up 12 percent as major-league professional sports, including the NFL, are weathering a ratings drop. PBR has set 13 local attendance records in cities visited by the Built Ford Tough Series throughout the year, and the bull-riding championship finale that will take place in Las Vegas is one of the most hotly contested competitions in years, coming down to reigning world champ J.B. Mauney, last year’s event winner Cooper Davis and 2015 Rookie of the Year Kaique Pacheco. Another attendance record is expected.

Of course, in Las Vegas, there is plenty more for PBR fans to see and do. And this year, World Finals Week already has a storybook ending before the competition has begun, because PBR’s big year culminates in its first event at T-Mobile Arena, which opened in the spring between MGM Resorts’ New York-New York and Monte Carlo properties.

Las Vegas stadium gives energy to monorail extension proposal

The Las Vegas Monorail Co. will seek Clark County commissioners’ permission this week to extend the monorail’s route from the MGM Grand to Mandalay Bay.

The 1-mile-long extension was a project marked for advancement in a traffic assessment report commissioned by the Nevada Department of Transportation board and released earlier this month. Along with the extension, a pedestrian bridge is proposed that would link the new monorail station to a proposed site on Russell Road for a new $1.9 billion stadium.

The monorail company, a privately held nonprofit, is asking the county for a maximum of two years to acquire funding and start construction on the extension of the elevated, 3.9-mile-long monorail, which has operated east of the Strip since 2004.

Construction on the monorail extension could start as soon as the second quarter of 2017, according to backup documents provided to the County Commission. At this time, no public money is being sought for the project.

Jerry Jones says it's 'pretty definitive' that the Raiders will move to Las Veg
Jones sees the 'crosshairs' aligning for the Las Vegas Raiders

"Really if you look at the history of teams moving, this is pretty definitive. There's a pretty bright line right there. They've provided for a team, the most funding that's ever been funded from third parties," Jones said. "So that's about as strong, L.A. never really had that powerful of influence, I'll put it that way. Which is over $700 million of initial contribution from the state of Nevada and the city of Las Vegas. That's pretty strong. Vegas has a lot going for it. I think it's going to really have, a real, if you will, strong case to get an NFL football team. I know that Oakland, certainly, was approved to move earlier this year.

"And you put all of that together and that's pretty confluence of things coming together. I call that the crosshair theory when things get in the crosshair, you better recognize it most of the time."

County Commission OKs plan to extend Las Vegas Monorail with Raiders in mind

Clark County commissioners, spurred by the Nevada Legislature’s approval of a plan for a stadium that could house the National Football League’s Oakland Raiders, gave their unanimous approval Tuesday for the Las Vegas Monorail Co. to extend its route from MGM Grand to Mandalay Bay.

The county Zoning Commission is scheduled to discuss approving use permits for the project at a 9 a.m. Wednesday meeting in the commission chambers.

Once the monorail company gets the commission’s final OK, it must secure financing and begin construction on the newly approved extension within two years, according to the franchise agreement amendment passed by the commission.

Construction could start as soon as the second quarter of 2017, according to the company. Myles said the extension could be opened to the public within two years of starting construction.

Where on property is it?: It’s on the southeast corner of the casino, where the Lance Burton Theater once sat. It also welcomes you from the north as you drive into Park Las Vegas from Park Avenue.

When does it open?: December 17 with Stevie Nicks and The Pretenders.

Towbin Motorcars starts construction on Ferrari, Maserati showroom

Towbin Motorcars broke ground Tuesday on a 10,000-square-foot Ferrari and Maserati showroom on the corner of South Lindell Road and West Sahara Avenue.

Towbin Motorcars is already a dealer of luxury brands including Rolls-Royce, Bentley and Aston Martin. The company acquired the former Penske Wynn Ferrari and Maserati dealership at the Wynn Las Vegas last October.

The showroom will have large panels of glass and be filled with “Italian style and sophistication,” said Carolynn Towbin, chairman/dealer principal of Towbin Automotive Enterprises, adding that the company has sent all of its employees to receive “extensive training” on the new brands to make sure the showroom will be filled with knowledgeable sales professionals.

How the Los Angeles Kings helped bring the NHL to Las Vegas

Before the Los Angeles Kings' final home preseason game in Las Vegas earlier this month, Luc Robitaille, the president of business operations for the Kings, presented Bill Foley, the majority owner of Las Vegas' NHL franchise, with a silver hockey stick. It was a ceremonial passing of the torch from the team that had been Las Vegas' adopted hockey team to the team that next season will become Las Vegas' first major professional sports franchise.

"The Kings had a lot to do with developing interest in hockey in Las Vegas," Foley said. "They've been playing preseason games here for years. It's great for us. We're coming in here a couple of steps ahead."

Not only have the Kings been playing preseason hockey games in Las Vegas since 1991, but the Anschutz Entertainment Group, the company that owns the Kings, has been trying to build an arena in Las Vegas, which it always believed could house an NHL team, for the past decade. AEG was able to partner with MGM Resorts International a little more than two years ago to build the T-Mobile Arena on the Las Vegas Strip, just behind the New York-New York and Monte Carlo hotels. The arena, which opened in April, was a big reason the NHL awarded Las Vegas and Foley an expansion franchise two months later.

Recreational marijuana use OK’d by Nevada voters

Nevadans voted Tuesday to legalize recreational marijuana for adults ages 21 and over. The passing of Question 2, by a margin of six points according to early polling results, allows for the legal purchase of up to 1 ounce of marijuana or up to one-eighth ounce of marijuana concentrates such as wax, carbon dioxide oil and shatter.

Under the law, recreational users will also be allowed to buy marijuana paraphernalia such as bongs and glass pipes. Those living outside a 25-mile radius of the closest Nevada marijuana dispensary will be permitted to cultivate up to six marijuana plants at home for personal use, as long as it’s away from public view.

High-speed rail plans may include station near proposed Raiders stadium site

A representative of XpressWest on Wednesday gave the Nevada High Speed Rail Authority an update on plans to build a line between Las Vegas and Victorville and Palmdale, California, and to Union Station in downtown Los Angeles.

Andrew Mack, chief operating officer of XpressWest, also told the five-member authority board that the company may look into the possibility of building a station near the proposed 65,000-seat domed stadium that is under consideration on 62 acres at Russell Road and Interstate 15.

The property is one of two locations XpressWest has explored for a Las Vegas terminus for the initial phase of a 185-mile, dual-track line to Victorville. It’s also a leading candidate for the site of the $1.9 billion stadium that could house the Oakland Raiders if the team were to relocate to Las Vegas.

Sandoval appoints economic development chief as head of Raiders stadium authority

Gov. Brian Sandoval on Thursday tapped his economic development chief to be chairman of the Clark County Stadium Authority, a new body established to oversee construction and operations of a proposed $1.9 billion domed football stadium in Las Vegas.

Steve Hill, executive director of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development, takes on the added role heading the authority immediately. Hill also chaired the Southern Nevada Tourism Infrastructure Committee, which recommended construction of the 65,000-seat stadium as the proposed future home of the NFL’s Raiders and the UNLV football team.

Sandoval filled out his three appointments to the stadium authority by selecting Dallas Haun, chief executive officer of Nevada State Bank, and Bill Hornbuckle, president of MGM Resorts International. Hornbuckle also served on the infrastructure committee, while Haun serves on UNLV’s Campus Improvement Authority board.

Whiskey Pete’s $3.2M upgrade celebrated with tours, toast

About 50 people on Friday took tours, chugged a whiskey toast and helped Affinity Gaming executives celebrate the conclusion of a $3.2 million face-lift at the 248-room Old West-themed Whiskey Pete’s property south of Las Vegas.

The company modernized the rooms with a top-to-bottom overhaul with new wallpaper and fixtures. Renovations included the addition of new bathrooms, upgraded beds and carpeting, modern furnishings and appliances including refrigerators, flat-screen televisions and plug-ins for laptops, smartphones and other devices. Company officials said it was the first major work done on the rooms since the property opened in 1977.

Clark County Commission votes to fund proposed Raiders stadium, Las Vegas Convention Center

A majority of Clark County commissioners voted Tuesday to codify two hotel room tax increases to fund the upgrade of the Las Vegas Convention Center and the construction of a 65,000-seat stadium.

Both tax increases were made official in a single 6-to-1 vote with Commissioner Chris Giunchigliani dissenting.

One tax increase will finance $750 million in bonds for a $1.9 billion domed stadium project, which could become home to the NFL’s Oakland Raiders and UNLV football team.

It’s no boom, but Las Vegas construction forges ahead

The latest numbers from Dodge Data and Analytics, a New York-based business intelligence firm specializing in the construction industry, show a 28 percent decrease in both residential and nonresidential construction projects getting underway in September 2016 as compared to September 2015.

Cumulatively, according to Dodge’s year-to-date numbers through September, Clark County has seen $3.093 billion in construction projects get underway in 2016. That number is up slightly from $3.077 billion in 2015, representing an increase of just more than a half percent.


This half-percent rise comes from residential construction consisting of both single-family and multifamily dwellings, which has grown 15 percent — from $1.54 billion to $1.77 billion — while nonresidential construction saw a decline of 14 percent, from $1.53 billion to $1.32 billion.

Las Vegas’ newest resort, Lucky Dragon, is opening doors early

The public will get a chance to see that 1¼-ton glass dragon sculpture at the Lucky Dragon hotel-casino a little earlier than expected.

The property’s 27,500-square-foot casino with 37 table games and 300 slot machines will be ready for business as will its Chinese restaurants on the atrium level overlooking the casino floor and into the middle of the massive centerpiece dragon created to give players good luck.

The property’s five restaurants, where food has been prepared for onsite employees who have been training for nearly two weeks, will be a “night market,” inspired by street food outlets in Taipei and Beijing.

Las Vegas is moving forward in the push to lure more Chinese tourists.

Las Vegas’ NHL team set to make long-awaited team name announcement

After the NHL awarded Las Vegas an expansion franchise for the 2017-18 season, owner Bill Foley labeled the next big announcement as the reveal of the team name and logo. He promised to make the eventual unveiling an event with a free celebration.

He’ll finally deliver on that pledge at 5:30 Tuesday evening at Toshiba Plaza outside of T-Mobile Arena. The team’s general manager, George McPhee, and NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman will appear alongside Foley as he uncovers a mystery that has gripped local sports fans ever since Las Vegas was first linked to a team nearly two years ago.

The name is expected to be some variation of Knights, with Desert Knights, Silver Knights and Golden Knights the most likely choices. Foley initially wanted to name the team Black Knights in homage to his West Point alma mater, but a number of factors ultimately dissuaded him from that.

Downtown Grand first to take bets on e-sports

The Downtown Grand is now taking bets on e-sports—becoming the first casino in the U.S. to do so — only two days after Nevada’s Gaming Policy Committee recommended that the state’s regulators begin working to allow the practice in Nevada.


Through William Hill, the U.K.-based company that manages the casino’s sports book, the Grand is now taking bets on the finals of the 2016 League of Legends Intel Extreme Masters Season XI e-sports event in Oakland, Calif, on Saturday and Sunday.

“Right now it’s happening,” Downtown Grand CEO Seth Schorr said. “Someone could come down and bet on winner of the final match of the Intel Extreme Masters, a major tournament taking place in Oakland.” Schorr said his sports book started taking bets at about noon today.

Welcome to the world, the Vegas Golden Knights.

At 6:17 p.m. Tuesday, a brand was born that will bring world-wide publicity to the city and an expansion hockey team which will represent Nevada as the state’s first major league professional sports franchise.

The Knights’ name was announced amid great fanfare at Toshiba Plaza as an estimated 5,000 people waited outside the team’s home, T-Mobile Arena, to listen to speeches from team majority owner Bill Foley, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman and Clark County commissioner Steve Sisolak before the revealing of the nickname, colors and logo.
