IMAGINE HOW SMART HE’D BE IF HE READ CITYLIFE EVERY WEEK. WITH OUR NEW HOME DELIVERY SERVICE, IT’S POSSIBLE. AND, FOR NOW, FREE!
And not just your dog. Your cats, ferrets, rabbits, irritating birds — all can benefit from getting CityLife delivered directly to your home. And so can you. Beginning with the Sept. 6 issue, you can have this very publication brought to your house every Thursday morning by 12-year-olds on bikes, or elves, or supermodels — that’s not really our department. All we know is that mere hours after it rolls off the presses, our heady mix of news, cultural criticism and racy ads can be waiting on your driveway, or possibly in your bushes. Finally, the 21st century lives up to its promise.
Best part: If you act before Sept. 6, you’ll get your first year of home delivery for free. That’s seven dog years, at no cost. After Sept. 6, we’ll charge you a still-reasonable $12 a year, because, unlike journalists, those supermodels don’t work for nothing.
So call 383-0420 or go to www.lasvegascitylife.com and click on the “find a copy” link on the top of the page.
CAN’T WAIT TO SEE THE PRODUCT FLOOR AT THIS CONVENTION
Coming to Las Vegas Sept. 6 and 7: BedBug University — North American Summit 2012.
Yeah, bedbugs. We’re glad to see the convention business bouncing back.
More than 20 leading entomologists will gather at Red Rock Resort to discuss the pestilent little buggers, educating leaders in housing, hospitality, universities and other sectors about the latest research on bedbug treatment, business and legal policies and more. The summit is hosted by BedBug Central, a leading resource for bedbug information. Also taking place as the summit will be BedBug Central’s EXPOcentral, featuring more than 75 bedbug product manufacturers and technologies.
Thankfully, there will also be a beer-tasting reception.
At least we’ve learned something we didn’t know before: There are more than 20 entomologists in the world. STAFF
AD MEN, MEET LITTLE GREEN MEN
AMC has already got the lockdown on TV’s meth cooks, zombies and philandering advertising executives, so why not add to that top-secret CIA stuff and aliens?
The cable channel that brings us Breaking Bad, Mad Men and The Walking Dead is reportedly working on a new series about Area 51, based on a book of the same name by LA Times reporter Annie Jacobsen, which CityLife reviewed last year.
The military base, located 130 miles from Las Vegas, is a testing ground for top-secret technology, and is — depending on who’s talking — an alien hot spot.
An AMC rep told the New York Post that the show will be set in the 1950s and ’60s. Fingers crossed for a Don Draper cameo. STAFF
