I have a confession. One of my biggest guilty pleasures is CatHouse‘s cotton candy. I can’t figure out why, but it’s slightly different than “normal” cotton candy. It’s lighter, more magical and there’s some flavor in it that makes you feel like a kid and an “adult” at the same time.

Needless to say, I look for any excuse to visit CatHouse and eat cotton candy. Last night provided just that 🙂 Yesterday, was the soft opening for CatHouse’s newest night, Closet Sundays. Of course, I had to check it out. As a hotel (and a company) we’re big on diversity. We’re also big on providing experiences for everyone and anyone. Closet Sundays provides an upscale Fashion Boutique ultralounge for those in the LGBT community and for those who just enjoy fashion. And wow, there are fashion shows, models and clothing companies galore at this event!

If you want to learn more about the event, view the official press release. While it doesn’t mention the fabulous cotton candy, it does go into more event details.

Tonight was the first public preview performance of CRISS ANGEL Believe. While I’ve seen dress rehearsals almost everyday this week, tonight was special. Tonight was different. Tonight, I felt like a proud Mommy; racked with both unbelievable excitement and also nervousness.

While Criss Angel, Cirque du Soleil and Luxor have worked on this for several years, my work for the show “officially” began in September 2007… one year ago.

For the past year, I’ve seen countless story boards, website mock-ups, creative ideas for all mediums- TV, building wraps, billboards, magazine ads, online banners, etc. Throughout it all, I envisioned the effects, the dances, the costumes, the stage and so on. But, no matter what I envisioned, seeing it come to life is something difficult to put into words. Although, cool, awe inspiring and surreal come to mind 🙂

Here’s to a great preview period (September 26, 2008 – October 29, 2008) and an even more exciting Gala Opening on October 31… Cheers!

A Little Bit About this Blog

This blog was started because Luxor firmly believes that the cornerstone of our business relies on providing easy and exceptional customer service. We also think Las Vegas and Luxor are pretty cool places to live and work; we want to share our experiences with you.

Here’s a few bullet points about what this blog is, will be and what it is not:

  • This blog is an “All Access”, first person point of view about Luxor Hotel and Casino
  • While the blog is managed by the person who handles the Interactive Marketing (read more about me), it will also include guest posts from other employees in various departments
  • Luxor Hotel and Casino is currently going through a rebranding and remodeling. I’ll include news about our remodel, new venues, etc.
  • I’d like to say this blog will have “no marketing”, but I work in the Marketing Department; that’s where my POV comes from. However, I do promise no “hard” marketing messages in the posts. If you ever see one, just let me know!
  • I hope this blog inspires feedback, ideas and better customer service for our past, current and future guests.

A Little Bit About Me

Before I jump into the “All Access” blog posts, I thought I’d share a little bit of information about the persona behind this blog and @LuxorLV.

  • I’ve worked for MGM MIRAGE for two years and currently handle the Interactive Marketing for Luxor.
  • I think I have a pretty cool and fun job. It runs the gamut from our online and mobile advertising, email marketing, presence in engagement mediums and social networks, managing our websites and mobile marketing… basically anything that happens online 🙂
  • I’m a girl
  • I’m originally from South Florida and moved to Vegas two years ago
  • In my spare time, I enjoy swimming, running, photography and sports
