Eric Bashear dressed as Big Red Riding Hood and his girlfriend Imani Aliyah as Little Bad Wolf:     
     “That party definitely qualifies as EPIC!!” Eric said. 
    And yes, his party was EPIC!!

There were two grilling stations with two chefs grilling, including Hibachi along with two fully stocked bars where girls from Naughty Bartenders - Imani Aliyah company - worked non-stop to make this Halloween party the best yet.

Habitues Steven Lee August - Reptile Rescue Las Vegas - and his girlfriend Maria Gara - August Entertainment, Party Planning; JD - Propriety Brothers - and his girlfriend, all having a blast.

First time party goer, Brazilian chef de cuisine, Daniel Ivan Mendes, was amazed by the opulence of Eric's party. 

According to Daniel, this is his last stop before a trip to East Asia for perfecting his cooking skills.

Like Daniel, there were other first time Eric party goers who were delighted with the extravaganza.  

Elisa Furr, Denita Asberry and Carol-Lyn Liddle-Puffer singing, warming the backyard,
and encouraging everybody to dance.

Hilarious pictures were taken inside silk lined Caskets that were available for photo opportunities. 

The party was sponsored by Shoot Las Vegas, Eric's shooting range.

Eric filled the party's atmosphere with happiness and excitement, so he decided to make this video 

There were pole dancer girls, looking like professional dancers and a no so professional but very creative and super funny guy.

This party was indeed Epic, people were singing, dancing, eating, drinking, lots of laughter, smiles, and there was happiness in the air!

Flying over Las Vegas

by Mikelly Braga

Las Vegas honors the title of Fabulous City! And this can be whatever the way you explore it; on foot, by a tourist bus or in a glamorous limo ride, the grandeur of Las Vegas is unquestionable.

But how about a helicopter ride?

The answer should be at most, "Of course!" And at the very least, "Why not?"

This is the fastest and most exciting way to know how flawless this City is. From the sky, enjoy the world-famous Strip and Downtown Las Vegas with all its colors and lights, if you prefer a night tour. After all, day or night this tour is unforgettable, and with Las Vegas sunset even more before the eyes of their passionate lovers.

Do not miss the opportunity to fly the light beam of the Luxor pyramid, the skyline New York - New York,
the dancing fountains of the Bellagio, the Roman Empire of Caesars, the charming Paris Eiffel Tower, the Clock Tower in the Venetian St Mark's Square and much more.

Admire the historic center of Las Vegas with the neon signs of oldest casinos that still thrive, and the canopy of Fremont Street, dubbed Glitter Gulch, as well as the skyscraper of the Stratosphere.

Repeat all these attractions on the way back to the heliport, only this time in reverse.

The suggestion is to make the reservation of the tour in advance. Introduce yourself at heliport to check in at least 45 minutes prior to departure and in possession of an identification document. When embarking be aware of all the instructions given by the pilot and follow the letter.

And so, watch the magnificence of Las Vegas cabin right in the front row of the sky, and have the best 10 to 15 minutes of your day!

SlotZilla, Fremont Street view from an unforgettable angle

 Flying over Fremont Street

Some say that Las Vegas is the only one-street town. My dear, this person is totally mistaken.

Las Vegas is a fabulous, mid-desert city filled with attractions for all ages, tastes and pockets.

Starting where it all began: Fremont Street. Located in the center of the city, it concentrates the oldest Las Vegas hotels and casinos, which existed even before the famous Strip.

The Fremont Street Experience is a closed, covered street. It offers a variety of events and shows throughout the day. But it is at night that magic happens. Its ceiling transforms into a giant multi-sensory entertainment screen with music, animations and games of light of last generation, making it the largest audio and video system in the world.

One of the best ways to contemplate the lights of Fremont Street is flying over it through the SlotZilla zipline. This is a 12-story slot machine in the middle of the street.

When purchasing the ticket at the store, at the scheduled time, the person will go up stairs. It will be heavy, tied to a safety belt and will have your personal items stored in a bag attached to your belt.

Already on the launch pad, the person will be pinned to the zipline. In a few seconds, it will leave for the landing platform across the street. 

Time to relax and enjoy your flight under the world's largest canopy, gaze at the neon lights around you and see Fremont from an unforgettable angle. In the meantime, the people down below waiting for their turn or even had the courage to face the zipline, will be watching their bravery and hear their cries of pure adrenaline!

Las Vegas Zombie Apocalypse

Hélio de Mello Braga
Las Vegas Zombie Killer

"STUNNING!! Stunning is the word that describes the Zombie Apocalypse in Las Vegas.

It was an amazing experience! After gearing up, we entered a creepy scenic city destroyed after an unknown virus turned all inhabitants into zombies. And our mission was, basically, to get into the city, led by former US military, and find the cure for this evil and kill the zombies in the process. 
It did feel like I was in a movie ... like "The Walking Dead." All very realistic!
Sensational! Stunning!" Hélio Braga

 Former Army Rangers, Navy SEALs, Green   Beret and Delta Force Operators will prepare     and train you to strategically maneuver through   a displaced town that has been overtaken by   flesh hungry, diseased zombies. 

 Once you are briefed, tactically equipped and     divided into teams, former Special Ops Warriors   will lead you through a gauntlet of chaos in their   38,000 sq. ft, million-dollar build-out, with epic   special effects! 

 You WILL believe that you are in the middle of a   real life video game, running and gunning, in   the ultimate apocalyptic Special Ops mission.

The ultimate goal is to eliminate any and ALL   mutated entities, living or otherwise, to prevent   further spread of a lab virus. 

 Additionally, kill or capture any identified   terrorist  cell members and under no   circumstances,   allow them to escape. 

 Your third and final task is to contain, secure,   and bring back the biological contamination   agent.
