Your Questions About Las Vegas Tv Show
where did the tv show tanked get their fish from?
Recently a tv show aired on animal planet called tanked. They flew to LA to get their fish from a store which I remember I came across once before but am searching online now and forgot the name. Anyone remember what the name of that store was?
Their business is actually called Acrylic Tank Manufacturing (ATM) in Las Vegas. I know that they have their own fish quarantine facility, where they keep a set amount of stock fish for client tanks, but as to where they buy them from, I have no clue. There’s nothing on their website about it, but they do have a phone number if you want to call and ask them!
any body work for security of a casino in vegas?
ok im a jr. in high school and gonna graduate nxt year im think of a profession of working for security in a casino maybe even a Las Vegas casino i was wonderin what the job was like also mind if i email you a couple questions if not let me know and also is it anything like the tv show Las Vegas? and what schooling do i need or is there no college involved?
Each casino is different, but almost all of them use the police 400 codes and standard ten-codes on the radio. They almost all make you qualify on non-weapon unarmed defense techniques and detaining procedures. No guns inside the casino, though the bigger casinos have armed guards in the parking lots.
It’s not as glorious or easy as you think. There’s a LOT of walking, and you can’t go to work tired or high – you’ll get canned quickly. And don’t even think about hitting on girls (especially employees) or talking big to customers.
Being a security guard, being a pit boss and running a surveillance camera in the casino are three very distinctly different, independent jobs. Security usually takes the chips from the main cage to the playing areas. The pit bosses supervise all transactions at the gaming tables.
You’d have to get a Nevada guard card and a TAM card (working around alcoholic beverages). For the guard card, Metro does some checks on your background and some fingerprinting. Both cards together will set you back about $120.
Benefits include two free meals a day and usually a 401k plan.
You don’t need a degree to get started, but to move up in ranks a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice would be very helpful.
What to do on our road trip from Las Vegas to SanDiago?
We are flying to Las Vegas the second week in Januwary and are planning to drive down to San Diago to Sea World and back. We have about two weeks…anyone know anything else we should check out or go see in either place or along the way. We’ve already done Disneyland and Universal Studious
Here’s my SoCal top ten list. Feel free to eliminate the first two:
Disneyland: The Happiest Place on Earth. Half a billion visitors can’t be wrong. (Sometimes it seems all at once)
Universal Studios: A theme park that grew out of a studio tour. Check out eBay. You can find some discounted tickets there. And Universal City Walk is a fun place to hang out in the evening after your day inside the park.
Hollywood: Hollywood Boulevard is ready for its close-up, thanks to years of urban renewal and renovation. Enjoy the Walk of Fame, Entertainment Museum, Mann’s Theatre and more. You can see a lot for free. I have also added the Hollywood & Highland complex to my top ten list… it has lots of shops and restaurants, and the Kodak Theater (home of the Academy Awards). I like the El Capitan theater, because it has been restored to its former glory, unlike the Chinese, which was essentially gutted and turned into a multiplex.
Rodeo Drive, 90210: Packed with exclusive shops, full of gawkers. They all came to enjoy the excess. Free, unless you intend to buy something.
Venice Beach: Los Angeles kitsch and over-the-top culture at its best.
Here you’ll find Muscle Beach, street performers and tacky shops galore.
Fun, VERY interesting, but I avoid it after dark, when it gets a little TOO interesting for my taste. And it’s a short bike ride from:
Santa Monica Beach and Pier: Great beach scene and a classic seaside amusement park, complete with antique carousel that has been in a lot of TV and movies. (The Sting and “Three’s Company” come immediately to mind).
After visiting the pier, you can ride a bike south a couple miles to Venice Beach.
Santa Monica Third Street Promenade – Downtown Santa Monica’s shopping promenade is often the scene of movie star-sightings. Just a short walk from the Santa Monica Pier.
Sunset Boulevard: Perhaps one of the world’s most famous streets, it began as a route between the stars’ posh neighborhoods and the Hollywood studios. It runs from downtown to the ocean, passing through the “Sunset Strip” on its way. It makes for a fun drive. Along the way, you see a lot of different neighborhoods. Hollywood, West Hollywood, Bel Air, and Pacific Palisades. When you get to the ocean, stop at Gladstone’s for Fish.
Queen Mary: Once the largest ship afloat, she’s been docked in Long Beach for longer than she sailed, and her elegance never fails to impress. Free to visit. You can actually stay on board, for a price.
Farmers Market and The Grove – A new shopping complex right next to a Los Angeles landmark, The Grove and Farmers Market coexist. Enjoy a movie or shopping, then take the trolley to the Farmers Market for lunch or dinner.
Farmer’s Market is right next to CBS, so walk across the lot to see if they are taping “The Price is Right”. You might even get in.
Griffith Park – Home of the Los Angeles Zoo, Griffith Park Observatory, Travel Town, the Greek Theatre, and Gene Autry Museum of Western Heritage.
Getty Museum – The Getty’s architecture is so beautiful that it keeps me fascinated. No matter whether you like their art or architecture better (or maybe you’ll just enjoy the view), the Getty is sure to please. Free.
Attend a TV taping – You can get free tickets at audiencesunlimited.com, or see the booth at Universal City walk. It’s very interesting to see a show being taped. The most popular, by far, is the tonight show. Check the NBC web site for all the details there.
Places to eat:
In-N-Out Burger: Multiple locations, best burger in LA, ask anyone.
Pink’s Hot Dogs: 709 N. La Brea, just north of Melrose. Might see a celebrity.
Tommy’s Chili Burgers: Look for the shack, an LA tradition. Original location at Beverly & Rampart, a couple miles west of downtown.
Canter’s Deli: 419 N. Fairfax, between Beverly & Melrose. Near CBS, might spot a celebrity.
Phillippe’s: 1001 N. Alameda. Great roast beef sandwiches. Near Union Station, Olvera Street. Watch the mustard, it’s hot.
Places to Stay:
In Hollywood, I recommend the Hollywood Celebrity Hotel and the Farmer’s Daughter Hotel.
In Anaheim, I recommend the HoJo Anaheim, and the Candy Cane Inn. If you want to splurge and make this a most memorable trip, stay at Disney’s Grand Californian. You get the full Disney experience. If you don’t need to stay by the park, then stay at the Doubletree on Harbor, or even the one in Orange on Chapman.
In Santa Monica, the Holiday Inn Santa Monica is close to the pier and reasonably priced.
Places to Shop:
South Coast Plaza, Costa Mesa
Fashion Island, Newport Beach
Third Street Promenade, Santa Monica
Citadel Outlets, Commerce
Beverly Center, Los Angeles
The Block at Orange, Orange
Ontario Mills, Ontario
How many of you were surprised by how much motherhood changed you?
I had no idea, I was not prepared.
I mean how you think now and how you react emotionally. I was watching a CSI episode (original Las Vegas), I had seen this one before a few years ago the victim was a baby, just a few weeks old like my baby. I was nursing him when they found the baby on tv, they showed her all peaceful like and her little feet, it was the same size as my baby that I was holding to my breast. I lost it, I started crying, I am not a crier, but man I was sobbing, I was such an emotional wreck I had to change the channel.
Have any of you noticed the maternal change in you , have you reacted differently to something you have seen/heard/read before now that you have had a child. Have to say, a very profound feeling
I can’t stand to see pics of babies or children that have been abused or are dead. Before, it didn’t bother me. I found a picture from a magazine that I had torn out and put into my scrapbook like YEARS AND YEARS ago of that fireman holding that dead baby after finding her in the Oklahoma City bombing back in what… 1995? I found it last night and just kept staring at it. It haunted me so bad… My son is 10 months old, about the age of that baby in the picture.
Which clubs are the hottest in LAS VEGAS for my 21st birthday?
I want to party hard and get girls on the weekend of my birthday in LAS VEGAS. Any tips on which clubs I can go to and how to talk to girls in these over 21 clubs?
Pretty much everything is over 21. There are clubs there, but you are mostly dealing with casinos.
You walk into a hotel, say… The palms, MGM grand or the Monte Carlo. The first floor is a huge open space with card tables, bards, TVs, slot machines. Some of these places also have theaters for their shows. Like the blue man group for example. You should really see them while your there.
There has to be some online source you can use to help you hit the high points of vegas.
how many cabs are there in las vegas and how much advertising do they get for their billboards on top?
I am trying to figure out how much money is spent on advertising to visitors to Las Vegas every year. I have heard that there is a lot of money spent for taxicab billboards alone. Anything you can tell me on this topic would be helpful.
I believe there are approxamatly are 2000 in vegas. Most of the advertising is for hotel shows or strip clubs. There are also mobile billboards that drive around town. They tend to be anoying because the trucks that travel around are not to go faster than 25 mph on roads that are 45 mph limits. Some of the truck billboards have a bigscreen tv on eachside and the back kind of like at best buy where they take 16 tvs and put them all together. Most of the trucks advertise gentlemen clubs. Those are the dangerous ones. But In the 7 years I have been here it ranges what the advertising is for by what conventions are in town and if a new casino show is debuting or what show is lacking. Such conventions as CES consumer electronics show, Magic its a clothing convention, or NAB national audio broadcasters conventions will affix their info on the cabs throughout the strip area. Which sometimes most of the conventions are non public. But has 10000 people attending them. The rest of the advertisment usually are for nightlife. Most of the dance clubs lounges use them as well as some hotels promoting their new shows or restuarants.
All in all I think that the Vegas cabs have class and are unique with their themes and so on. I hope that helps
How to tell when the taping of a show will play?
I have a friend who has tickets to Dancing with the Stars in Las Vegas tonight (4/12/12) and I was wondering when the taping will be played on tv so I can see him?
That’s just for the Las Vegas Dancing with the stars concert but that doesn’t start until Saturday
It’s not for the TV show
What kind of suit would a groom wear to a 50′s style wedding?
I am having a Las Vegas themed wedding and having difficulty finding a suit for my hubby to be. Firstly I’m not sure what kind of suit would go with the theme and secondly where to get it from!
If anyone can help with this I will be very grateful!
Thanks in advance!
If you watch the TV show “Leave It To Beaver” you will see that Ward Cleaver wears dark suits and wool blend sport coats with coordinating slacks. You can’t go wrong with a black suit or brown suit or navy blue suit. Go to some second-hand clothing or consignment stores for 50′s style neck ties.
If you want some advice contact the costume director of a local theater production company. That’s where I start when I need advice. Advice. There may even be a costume company in Las Vegas that may be able to rent you an outfit. There’s a lot of costumes in Las Vegas!!
