Also in the house to enjoy and honor songstress and entertainment icon Dionne Warwick was Leeza Gibbons, American talk show host best known as a correspondent and co-host for Entertainment Tonight – as well as her own syndicated daytime talk show.
We were fortunate enough to catch Amy Armstrong when she did a one-night-only at Jimmy’s on East Twain. It has been said that this songstress has, the voice of an Angel and the mouth of a sailor. Yup – good vocals and good risque banter too. And OMG, Fernando Gonzalez knows how to make his guitar sing to us as he accompanies Amy and serenades us on his own as well. Jimmy’s co-owner Jimmy Emerson (along with Jim Lash) hope to make Jimmy’s the place to be for some cool Monday night entertainment. Jimmy performed in Las Cage at the Riviera for 20 years.
Well, we were in the right place at the right time when we visited Barry’s Downtown Prime located inside Circa Resort and Casino on Freemont Street. Who should be walking by but owner Barry Dakake. Charming fellow who was more than ready to pose for a quick photo.
Nnenna Freelon, American jazz singer, composer, producer, and arranger enjoyed her visit to the Grammy’s Gift Lounge at TopGolf. She was one of the many presenters and nominees who stopped in to select some special gifts.
