• In a stunning 4 to 3 vote, the Las Vegas City Council has voted to enact a new and draconian law that all but closes the doors on vacation rentals inside the city. Councilwoman Lois Tarkanian, who has literally stalked the vacation rental industry for the last 10 years or more, led the charge against everyone operating a vacation rental inside the city. The new law is largely based on emotion and anger and contains little sound logic at all, hence the draconian nature of the "legislation" passed. Lois called in her political favors to get the votes she needed, and in doing so, showed that she is more concerned with her own feelings more than actual facts. This seems a very popular trend in lawmaking lately. Legislating "personal beliefs" instead of sound logic and common sense.

  • Locals fans and visitors alike will be saddened to learn that The Lotus of Siam has been forced to close its doors temporarily due to a roof cave in. Unfortunately enough, the cave in happened during business hours, forcing refunds and cancellation of all existing reservations.

    According to management, the resturant is determined to re-open as soon as possible, though it may be at a new and temporary location. As of this posting, management has no date for reopening, as damage proved to be worse than originally thought. Fans of Lotus of Siam should stay tuned to their website and Facebook page for more information and updates.
