  • About Sandra Off the Strip
    I moved to Vegas and set out to explore the underbelly of a city that most only know by the bright lights of the Strip. After discovering a complete parallel universe “off the Strip,” I decided to share my experiences and create a blog that tells you where to savor the REAL Las Vegas – gritty, humble, human, ever-changing, sometimes decadant, sometimes...

  • Update: Wine Pairing Dinner @ Steak
    Steak in Henderson is hosting a very tasty and exclusive wine pairing with Gary and Christine Andrus, founders of Gypsy Dancer Estates. The Gypsy Dancer winery is small, family-owned and quality-driven. The 5 course menu sounds divine, especially the roasted duck with sweet potato mash whch is one of my all-time favorites. Due to last minute wine-donations, the cost...

  • Part II Text of the Emerald Tablet
    I examined several translations of the Emerald Tablet and found one that I thought held most closely to the Latin. Obviously the Latin we have is a translation from the Arabic, so we must be cautious about certainty even when dealing with that.

From the Strip, we took Sahara Ave straight east to Hollywood Blvd.* and headed north to E. Lake Mead Blvd. Take a right onto Lake Mead and drive east to the edge of...

    You need a car for any of these trips – or better yet a Harley. Anything is for rent/sale in Vegas, so if you have done what you want to do in the casinos and hanker after some fresh air and open vista, here are some ideas. 20-30 minutes from the Strip: Sloan Canyon.
