Another Week Another Vegas Best Of Poll

Local Las Vegas weekly newspaper Las Vegas City Life has thrown their hat into the online readers poll sweepstakes with their "Best of the Valley" thingamahoojis.

The voting is based on nominees culled from who knows where and features lots of the same categories as the RJ's 'Best of Las Vegas' awards with a slight twist. If the editors are taking liberties with nominations, why not enhancing the "Best Meatball" category by giving a nod to Paul Stanley's slightly less hairy doppleganger: Mr. Criss Angel!

While skimming through the nominees, I found a coupla noticeably interesting selections:

City Life Best of The Valley Awards

No, I'm not going to complain about the exclusion of VT in this list of bloggers, we're not locals and this awards show is tailored to their specific needs... but I will point your attention to the elephant not in the City Life room.

An even more egregious omission is in the "Best Local Historian" category... a category which seems tailor made for one person and one person only - Dr. David "G Money" Schwartz, y'know, the guy who heads the gaming studies department at UNLV who has written a stack of books on gambling culture and its historical development, y'know the guy who shows up on tons of basic cable Vegas documentaries, news reports and even a recent episode of CNN's Issues with JVM, y'know that guy who says the really really really smart and insightful stuff on the VegasGang podcast, y'know the guy who goes by Dave702 around here and just jumped on the Twitter @unlvgaming?

Perhaps we should add a "Best Readers Poll" award to the 2010 Trippies!
