Celebrating the 2012 Season Grand Opening of Encore Beach Club

30 Apr

Me and Grace Russell


Last Sunday, James and I hung out at Encore Las Vegas as a guest of Wynn public relations darling Grace Russell and Las Vegas Nightlife Group and. It was a special media VIP event celebrating the 2012 Season Grand Opening of Encore Beach Club with the super famous Tiësto as he kicked off his Wynn DJ residency. The party was also hosted by Sara Underwood, voted “Hottest Woman of 2012” by Esquire magazine, according to the invite. We didn’t see her in the throngs of beautiful 20-somethings fist pumping, jumping and posing in the hot sun.

Lucky for us, we camped out inside the air conditioned Surrender Nightclub which served as the VIP room. I love special media events like this because I get to see some of my favorite industry peeps and catch up on what new in their lives. Our gracious hosts set our pitchers of blueberry lemonade, the sister to their famous skinny lemonade, champagne and beer to go alongside lolli-chicken pops, grilled artichokes and meatballs.

Me and David Schnitzer

One thing about working in PR and marketing is the amount of people I get to encounter via email or phone call and rarely meet face to face, so I was excited to finally meet David Schnitzer who handles public relations and marketing for Surrender Nightclub, Encore Beach Club and Society Café. He is such a cutie pie and bears a striking resemblance to Glee’s Blaine Anderson (a.k.a. actor Darren Chris) just checks out his Twitter profile picture (@DaSchnitz.) I think I have a crush – lol.

Me and Susan Stapleton

That day was also a great time to catch up with Susan Stapleton and pick her brain on the where to eat right now in Las Vegas. After a few suggestions she directed me and James to The 38 Essential Las Vegas Restaurants, April ’12 on Eater Vegas of which she is the editor. I shared a laugh with the very fit and tan Mark Gray, and give a hug to Doug Elfman who I haven’t seen in nearly a year. It was also a chance to say hi to Sean Christie who doesn’t seem to age and is as handsome as ever.

After a couple of hours, a several laughs and a few cocktails, it was time to go. One question James and I was finally able to answer is: How do headlining DJs get a chance to go to the bathroom when guest are paying $100 a head for general admission?

Answer: They put on a really long song and run to a restroom. Ahhhhh….

Why I started to journal my Las Vegas life…

13 Dec
English: Las Vegas Strip

I started this journal because I am fortunate to do some really cool things living in Las Vegas, and I would like to share my experiences as I go about my daily life owning a mighty-little marketing communications and events consulting company called TwoGirlsConsulting, LLC (2GC). I started my company back in January of 2008 after working in corporate America. It has been a life of ups and downs ever since, yet I don’t regret one moment of it.

I love to write and should have started this journal of my activities years ago when I worked for Greenspun Media Group in the marketing department as a publicist/brand manager. We had the best celebrity rich parties and events on a weekly basis. Media people are fun – a breed of their own so to speak. However, that party ended in March of 2008 when my position was outsourced. Since then, I jumped the fence and became a journalist with Kellogg Media Group (What’s On Las Vegas/ What’s On Atlantic City) and The Greater Las Vegas Media Group (SOREAL Magazine/SOREAL Network) all while trying to grow 2GC.

My posts will be a mixture of marketing communication and event tips, trial and errors I have learned over the years along with bits of me thrown in between.

Thanks for reading xo
