Penn & Teller show at the RIO.   This linked site and others show that there will be shows thru June.  Does anyone know if Penn & Teller will be performing in August?  (Asking for my wife).

I think they’re releasing show dates in blocks, because who knows what our government will pull next? We plan to see them when we’re there.

 

Also, Tape Face is the best show we’ve ever seen. Brilliant and hilarious.

We are expecting that all the big and popular shows will be posting dates and selling tickets on or around June 1st, which has been slated as the official 100% open of EVERYTHING without restrictions.   'Word' has it that things will be back to almost pre-covid restrictions by August 21'. 

Please keep checking.  

Thanks

We will NOT be inspecting Vax cards out of respect for our guests and attendees privacy.  Anyone not comfortable with the new guidelines are encouraged to wear face coverings as I'm sure many will continue to do.   The only cards we will be inspecting will be IPMS/USA Membership Cards.  

See ya at the Nats!

Hey, Las Vegas model builders!  Now that the Hobby Town on Sahara has closed, where do you buy kits and supplies locally?  From my limited research, it seems there are no other LHS shops anywhere in the Vegas area.  Is that right???

Rick, there is only one small hobby shop left in Las Vegas, HobbyOne Japan.   Its a great little shop that caters mostly to Japanese animation figures and Gundum.  They carry a nice line of paint and supplies and few air and armor model kits.

There is a rumor of a new hobby shop opening soon, but until then we are limited to buying online.   It's sad that a city as large as Las Vegas has succumbed to the trend of fading brick and cement hobby shops.

Thanks Bob, that's what I was afraid of.  I'm lucky in that we have a great hobby shop (Hobby Hut Models) here in Grand Junction.  He carries lots of plastic kits, plus supplies, trains and remote control stuff.  He gets customers from all over western Colorado and eastern Utah.  Otherwise I have to drive to Denver or Salt Lake City.  Very few shops left in those two massive cities too.

Whenever we travel to California or Phoenix for a model show, we always stop off and stock-up at local shops located throughout LA and San Diego.  But more than just a place to buy models and supplies, local hobby shops were also a place to meet-up with friends and 'talk shop'.  That type of socializing was the hobbies life-blood before there were podcasts and Youtube.   I miss that.  

I was a partner in a hobby shop on Staten Island back in the 70-80's and that was always the best part of the business.  I met people that are still my friends today.  You can't get that online.

I agree Bob! I always love going into Hobby Shops just for the camaraderie and conversation. This is why I won't go in unless I have at least two hours to burn, if not more. I want to get the most out of my visit as I can.

I don’t know what I’m missing more right now... no actual in person chapter/club meetings, or the hanging out at local shops. The shop scene in Phoenix is a pretty minimal compared to LA area. But hey, at least we still have a couple of shops.

Hi Ed, 

 

YES! I bought tickets to the August 19th show this morning, through Ticketmaster.

Thanks for the heads up.   I just bought some for Thursday (8/19) also.   

Show is dark on Wednesday, Friday evening is judging, and Saturday is awards (such as they are).   My wife and I are looking forward to it
