EP#19: Here’s the (Time Share) Pitch!

April 29, 2019

Here's the scenario:  You're walking down the strip with your significant other enjoying the scenery, taking in the sights and sounds just minding your own business when a total stranger approaches you and says, "What a lovely couple!  How'd you like free tickets to a show?"

The first-timers and newbies are thinking, "Sure...I'd LOVE free tickets to a show!" meanwhile the Vegas veterans are thinking, "RUN!  RUN AS FAST YOU CAN!  DON'T ENGAGE!  DON'T TALK!  JUST RUN!"  Nothing in Vegas is free...and the price for those "free tickets" is sitting through the dreaded TIME SHARE PRESENTATION!

To navigate the murky waters of Time Shares, I've enlisted the help of an expert: Lisa Ann Schreier - aka The Time Share Crusader - is a consumer advocate who's been involved in the time share community for over 20 years.  She's an author & blogger who works to keep people up to date on the time share industry as well as the questionable companies and practices out there.

Also in this episode, Vegas News You Can Use:

- Sting has announced his residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace

- If you want to see The Eagles in September, be prepared to shell out BIG BUCKS

- And Criss Angel has scaled back the schedule for his "MindFreak Live" show at Planet Hollywood

And here's some Plugs for my Vegas friends:

- If you're in Las Vegas on a Friday night and looking for something different to do, join my very good friend Kenny Davidsen at the Piazza Lounge in the Tuscany Suites & Casino as he hosts Kenny Davidsen's Celebrity Piano Bar.  You never know who might show up to perform!

- My very good friend, Lisa Marie Smith is back home in Vegas and hitting the city with her new project, "LMS".  Be sure to follow Lisa on Twitter & Instagram for appearances and shows!  Also, her debut EP is currently available for streaming on Apple Music and Spotify and for download from iTunes. (BTW, watch for Lisa to join me on an upcoming episode of the podcast!)  

- There's some fantastic events and shows happening at my favourite off-strip Vegas venue, The Space!  Check out TheSpaceLV.com for upcoming tickets and shows and be sure to follow The Space on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

- And don't forget about the best value in Vegas entertainment, Mondays Dark with shows coming up on May 6th, May 20th, June 3rd & June 17th.  Join host Mark Shunock and his friends as they raise $10K in 90 minutes for a different local Las Vegas charity every show!  Information and tickets available at mondaysdark.com
