The Vegas Soulcialite Goes to the Hoodies

So the Hoodie Awards made it’s appearance in Las Vegas for the 12th time earlier this month, and it was my 3rd time covering. This time they came bearing a new name, The ‘Neighborhood Awards’. Last year Steve Harvey said the reason for the name change had to do with sponsorship. He of course wants to make it bigger and better every year, and maybe the name ‘hoodie’ turns some larger companies off? He already has [ ... ]

The Vegas Soulcialite Meets Her First Playboy Playmate

  I finally had the chance to see the Stratosphere Hotel’s newest residency show, ‘Pin Up’ last Friday night. It’s a retro burlesque-style show, which is pretty common for Vegas right now (well, always). You know, pretty girls in tight corsets and garter belts with 1940’s style swooped up hair and pouty red lips. This one takes you on a journey through every month in the year with a different song and dance routine to match the seasons and [ ... ]

The Vegas Soulcialite Chats With A Well Dressed Man

I love a sexy man. But what makes a man “sexy”? His walk, his smile, his arms, maybe his conversation…the way he dresses? It’s really a mixture of all of those, but one of the first things we notice is what he’s wearing. I for one don’t like the baggy jeans, snapback hats and jersey style.  Nothing wrong with it, but I’m over thirty, and I want my man to dress like he is too. There are a few really, I mean really [ ... ]

The Vegas Soulcialite Tells a Bedtime Story

  Do you remember the story of the Velveteen Rabbit? The children’s book about the stuffed toy that longs to be loved by his owner, but he isn’t fancy or expensive like the other toys, so he gets looked over and passed up, over and over and over.   I’m not sure about the real story behind the naming of the Arts District’s newest bar (opened just over a month), but for me the two really parallel, so we’re going to go [ ... ]

The Vegas Soulcialite Peeks Through the Looking-Glass

    I don’t watch a lot of television—at least not in the reality shows, make-over, or dance competition category. So when I had the opportunity to catch the Jabbawockeez show, ‘MUS.i.C’ at the Monte Carlo hotel back in 2010 with my friend Kanette, I wasn’t really all that excited. I was informed by my friend that they were the winners of ‘America’s Best Dance Crew’ and that they were really good. I believed her, she has great taste, but nonetheless, [ ... ]

The Vegas Soulcialite Honors Class

For some reason the theme of the last week has been ‘class’. I watched one of my favorite movies, Chicago last weekend and one of the songs that was actually cut from the film is called “Class”. Velma (Catherine Zeta-Jones) and Mama (Queen Latifah) sing about how there was a lack of it in the 1920’s… “Oh, there ain’t no gentelmen to open up the doors, There ain’t no ladies now there’s only pigs and whores And even kids’ll [ ... ]

The Vegas Soulcialite Dances In The Pool

  I will start this post by saying I LOVE the Cosmopolitan Hotel. It’s hands down my favorite resort on the Strip. Plus, I like their commercials…they don’t make a whole lot of sense… but they’re pretty cool. The resort itself is fantabulously classy and chic but at the same time it caters to my age group—which, in my opinion helps it avoid the excess snoot factor that some high-brow spots can have. However, what I really [ ... ]

The Vegas Soulcialite Plays Dress-up

So the saying ‘be careful what you wish for’ has to come to pass in my life. Before I started this blog I didn’t know what I was going to write about. I mean I did stuff, but I didn’t feel like I had enough things to talk about to keep anyone interested in the ‘Vegas Soulcialite’. I’m a long haul type of girl. Well looky here, I have been so busy doing stuff I haven’ had time to tell [ ... ]

So Who is The Vegas Soulcialite?

I moved to Las Vegas from Detroit and like most other ‘Midwest expats’ I had no idea exactly what I was getting myself into. Over the past five years I have learned the good, the bad and the ugly history of this town. The city has been a place of self-discovery; it’s tested my patience, wisdom and life goals. Basically the game changed when I moved here. Over the course of this column—however long that is, [ ... ]
