LET­TER FROM THE PUB­LISHER

Vegas Magazine - - Contents -

The heat of sum­mer is upon us, but never mind that: Have you seen our cover star, Tyson Beck­ford? The tem­per­a­ture has noth­ing on him! And since we’re all about gen­der equal­ity here at Ve­gas, this cover is also a mile­stone. It’s the first an­niver­sary is­sue in our 14 years with a man on the cover. (Way to break that ceil­ing, Tyson!)

Like all Las Ve­g­ans, we’re fo­cused on find­ing oases around town to get away from the heat in style. We’ll be cel­e­brat­ing our fab­u­lous an­niver­sary party this year at Red Rock Re­sort—one of our fa­vorite places to cool off. And last month, we hosted the de­but of The Aquatic Club at Palazzo, which takes pool style to a whole new level (hello, boozy ice pops, syn­chro­nized swim­mers, and de­li­cious pool­side fare by Wolf­gang Puck!).

You’ll find many more creative ways to cel­e­brate a Las Ve­gas sum­mer in the pages of this is­sue, from fash­ion to food— and fight­ing! (We can’t wait un­til UFC’S In­ter­na­tional Fight Week.)

Along with all the ex­cit­ing events this sum­mer, we’re also cel­e­brat­ing join­ing our new Modern Lux­ury pub­lish­ing fam­ily. We’re ex­pand­ing our foot­print in Las Ve­gas—and around the coun­try—and are look­ing for­ward to all the great things on our hori­zon. Cheers!

Af­ter an in­cred­i­ble per­for­mance, meet­ing— and tak­ing a pic­ture with— Cher was a ma­jor high­light of the month!
