Saying goodbye to 2016 in Las Vegas

The December 29, 2016 issue of Vegas Seven magazine

The Dec. 29 issue of Vegas Seven magazine.

I’ve spent the last two New Year’s Eve’s in… not Las Vegas. That’s really no way to spend the holiday. As much as I love my home state (NY) I’d argue Las Vegas is a better New Year’s experience. There’s something for every taste, and you can dial it up to a 10, or keep it around a 4, if that’s the way you like it.

For the New Year’s Eve issue of Vegas Seven magazine, I picked out seven ways to ring in 2017 off the Las Vegas Strip. There’s plenty to choose from — dinner specials, concerts, all-you-can-drink experiences, and even fireworks just outside of the city.

Online, you can get a look inside LAX Nightclub at Luxor as it readies for New Year’s Eve. The club had a lot of success this year with its “Throwback Thursday” headliners, and stuck to that theme when looking for its Dec. 31st headliners.

I also spent a few minutes chatting with Ron Ischer, Entertainment Operations Maintenance Manager at the Fremont Street Experience. It falls on Ischer’s shoulders to keep the 12.5 million lights of the Fremont canopy shining bright 365 days a year. But, as you can read, New Year’s Eve presents its own set of challenges.

The new issue of Vegas Seven is online and on newsstands now.
