Yesterday, I did an interview with our internal PR guru, Craig. He recently started an all-company internal newsletter and wanted his next article to be about what MGM MIRAGE is doing in the Social Media space.

I talked about this blog, Luxor’s Facebook and MySpace pages and my thoughts on social media and why it was important that Luxor participate. Craig doesn’t have a blog or a Facebook profile and he hasn’t checked his MySpace one in months, so it was hard for him to share and understand my enthusiasm. So, I switched gears and started talking about Twitter. I mentioned that earlier I tweeted about this interview. Craig thought that was cool. Then, I had an idea. I said, “Hey, let’s ask the twitterverse a question. What do you want to ask?” We came up with this:


Within ONE minute I had several responses. In less than five minutes, I had over 30 amazing responses! Craig was shocked and amazed. I could see his eyes light up and the light bulb go off. He got it. He understood the importance, the cool factor and the value of social media. In less than three minutes YOU were able to explain what I had been trying to explain for 30 minutes.

These were just a few of the responses:


To all those that responded to my question and helped out yesterday, THANK YOU. You are all truly amazing and special people… you ROCK MY SOCKS!

Because Luxor is so diverse, from its staff to its venues, hearing only one “voice” on this blog would be an inaccurate portral of Luxor. So, I plan to work with employees and various departments to get as many different voices and Guest Posts as possible. Below is one from Kussette who works at Liquidity, the center bar at Luxor.
Luxor was known for its Egyptian theme, hieroglyphics on the wall, mummies, pharaoh, sphinx, obelisk, RA, Nile and Nefertiti’s. Now, those were things of the past. The Luxor is reborn. There is a whole new different experience from what was ancient. We’re now more living in the present with a more lively and provocative atmosphere in the center bar, Liquidity and restaurant and nightclubs like LAX and CatHouse. We got the perfect hang out to talk and meet new people in Aurora– lobby bar. Why not try some refreshing cocktails on your first landing to Vegas. I recommend the Liquid Lemonade as one of the most refreshing cocktails invented. How about something different like a Strawberry Caprioskasfor the sweet tooth drinker or the popular signature drink Aurora which is fresh blueberries martini. It would be best to have it on Thurs-Mon from 8pm-6am. Don’t ask why, just take my word on it 😉

Not to mention, Flight, the best hang out while waiting for flights departure in LAS airport or to go to LAX nightclub on Wed, Thurs, Fri or Sat. One should definitely try the flights such as the First Class Whiskey or First Class Tequila. You’ll be paying much less to try ultra premium spirits in this bar than any other bar ever. Such as Patron Platinum and Crown XR plus it comes with the most creative garnishes ever like beef jerky for whiskeys and butterscotch candies for apple martinis. You name it they have the most eclectic menu out there.

In Liquidity, which is the center bar of it all, you can taste the slow dripping Absinthe.

Lastly, Criss Angel or Carrot Top might be the next person you see hanging out in one of the lounge or nightclubs mentioned. There is more to come at Luxor, like escalators, Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition and BODIES… The Exhibition and a whole bunch more for the ecstatic, energetic and full spirit crowd.
