NOW THAT THE
NEW Wynn property is open, Las Vegas is looking to its
next big event. The citys centennial, officially May 15, now has a
wine sponsor: Napa Valley vintner Beaulieu Vineyard. In this role,
the vintner will support both local and national festivities,
including the Road to Vegas tour with Collective Soul and the July
2 centennial concert featuring the Red Hot Chili Peppers and
Weezer. In addition, Beaulieu Vineyard plans to host its annual
reserve wine release event in Las Vegas this October. For more
information about the vineyard, visit www.bvwines.com.
CENTENNIAL also has an official oil painting. Commissioned
by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, the LeRoy
Neiman work, titled Celebrating 100 Years in Neon, features such
Las Vegas icons as a showgirl, Vegas Vic and classic hotel signage,
all done in vivid neon colors. The painting is not a first for
Neiman, who, over the years, has captured the spirit of Las Vegas
through works depicting boxing matches, casino action and the citys
entertainment offerings. Poster reproductions as well as other
official Las Vegas Centennial souvenirs are available to purchase
for $45 at www.lasvegas100merchandise.com.
