There is a new Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in Las Vegas

The beautiful thing about Las Vegas is that this is truly a city that embraces change.

Tourists all over the world may flock to this destination, but you can actually take loads of inspiration from several residents in the area who are making moves of their own.

During a recent visit to the North side of town, we crossed paths with John Schouten, who recently opened up a new Dickey’s Barbecue Pit. And while the chain may already be world renown, Schouten’s down-to-earth, homely approach with how he is operating his new facility is what is so engaging.

But don’t take our word for it. Please check out the new Dickey’s location at 6584 North Decatur Boulevard (702.655.0027) and keep up with the latest news on their chain on FACEBOOK.

Stay tuned for more updates.

PHOTOS from the 28th Annual Anderson Family Reunion

Hey everyone it was great to see you all again. There’s nothing like being around people who you know really love you and accept you for who you are.

Here are some photos from the 3 days here. I uploaded them to a private page on my website that can only be viewed on here.

If anyone wants to save any of these pictures, just click on the photo and then click ‘Save As’ or let me know and I will personally email you the photo.

It’s easier for me to put all the photos on here instead of sending the photos individually to everyone.

Love you all and see you next year.

We are less than 48 hours away from boxing’s next big event, as former eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao will square off with former lightweight titlist Brandon Rios inside of the Venetian Resort’s Coati Arena in Macau, China on Saturday night.

No stranger to the world-class stage, boxing great Roy Jones Jr. assessed the matchup with me during a recent rapid-fire discussion.

“That’s a good fight,” Jones claimed. “Pacquiao is clearly the better boxer. Rios is clearly the better brawler. If Pacquiao can make it a boxing match, he wins easily. If Rios can make it a brawl, he can probably can win.”

The left-handed stylist from the Philippines, Pacquiao is a clear favorite heading into his match with the all-action Rios.
