The Heritage Turkeys Dating from the Original Thanksgiving

November 7th, 2017 • by Sandy Zimmerman

Sandy Zimmerman’s Las Vegas TV & articles usually reviews shows and restaurants but Thanksgiving is  arriving soon, more than just a time to get together with friends and family. What does Thanksgiving really mean? In 1621, the first Thanksgiving celebrated giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest traced to the Pilgrims in Plymouth, Massachusetts.

The Thanksgiving meal usually is welcomed with a feast of turkey, warm gravy, cranberry sauce and all of the fixings. Many people don’t realize that some of the breeds of those historic turkeys have been protected and preserved from the 1920’s!

Known as Heirloom Turkeys, rare and unique breeds like the Auburn, Black and American Bronze Turkey Heirloom breeds, the best of both worlds, the old world Heritage turkeys and the modern healthy Organic Heritage Turkeys.
The Diestel Turkey Farm is one of a few farms today dedicated to breeding a variety of strains of historic Heirloom Turkey breeds. The Diestel family keeps up the tradition of preserving the Heirloom by handling them the old fashioned way of the 20th century with a natural foothills environment and methods.

Diestel Heirloom turkeys are slow grown in Northern California, where the deep well water and fresh mountain air complements the Heirloom turkey’s diet of certified organic grains. Our birds are fed a vegetarian diet that’s 100% free of GMOs, animal by-products, antibiotics, growth enhancers and hormones.

Diestel has organic oven roasted whole turkey, pasture raised turkey and American Heirloom turkeys by
The heritage turkeys are still a tiny minority, around 25,000 raised annually compared to more than 200,000,000 industrial turkeys and 7,000,000 turkeys in the wild. Despite increasing interest in heritage turkeys, they are still a tiny minority, perhaps 25,000 raised annually compared to more than 200,000,000 industrial turkeys and 7,000,000 turkeys in the wild.

Some of the different breeds- Diestel’s Naturally Oven Roasted Turkey, Organic Oven Roasted Turkey, The American Heirloom Collection Turkey and Fra ’Mani Brined & Seasoned Young Turkey;

Murray SawChuck’s Shrunken Head Party”

June 19th, 2017 • by Sandy Zimmerman

Now Murray Has His Own Shrunken Head

By Sandy Zimmerman

Murray SawChuck Celebrity Magician, at the Planet Hollywood, has always been ready to have a party but this one was really different!

The Golden Tiki Bar’s classic south Pacific look is the perfect place to see shrunken heads. They opened the curtain and the Shrunken Head ceremony began with The Baron of the Universe, The Golden Tiki’s managing partner Branden Powers and celebrity magician Murray SawChuck. Brandon opened the box and the shrunken head was presented to Murray.

Murray’s head looked like him complete with his swept-up hair and glasses. Glasses on a shrunken head? Well the Smithsonian artist Terry Barr wanted to be as accurate as possible.

There is really a method for making shrunken heads, not many people know how but being with the Smithsonian Museum, Terry Barr creates those on display at The Golden Tiki Bar.

Murray SawChuck Celebrity Magician (Planet Hollywood) and Douglas "Lefty" Leferovich Magician (Planet Hollywood)

He takes over four weeks with each of these special celebrity heads. There are now seven shrunken heads for you to compare with the “real” celebrities- Murray SawChuck, Vinnie Paul, Marky Ramone of The Ramones, Carrot Top, Frank Marino, Robin Leach and Norm Clarke.

Besides making shrunken heads, The Golden Tiki Bar offers dining and events.

Murray is known as a magician, comedian, actor, host, humanitarian (charity events) and maybe more. His show at the Planet Hollywood offers fun for the whole family.

Murray dubbed himself “The ‘Dennis the Menace’ of Magic,” and his shows often consist of a blend of “comical mishaps” that result in illusions and magic tricks. He was featured in the fifth season of America’s Got Talent, and is the resident magic historian on Pawn Stars. He has also appeared as a magic coach on five episodes of the VH1 series Celebracadabra, and has been a guest star on shows such as Reno 911! Last Comic Standing Celebrity Blind Date, War of the Worlds 2: The Next Wave, Ring of Darkness and on tour worldwide.  For information about Murray SawChuck celebrity magician, see him at the Sin City Theater, Planet Hollywood, 4 pm, SUN, MON, THURS. & SAT.

I originally reviewed Gordie Brown 10 years ago when he began his Las Vegas career opening at the Golden Nugget. This star-studded event launched Gordie as “The impressionist” and everyone enjoyed his special fast-moving interpretations and wit.

Gordie Brown’s recent opening was filled with celebrities at the cocktail party before his all new show in the Cabaret Show Lounge, at Planet Hollywood! Comparing his early show and now Gordie was “Better Than Ever”!

Gordie fires his vocal impressions quickly, one after the other hardly stopping to take a breadth. You watch a lot of celebrity impressions and will continue laughing throughout the evening. If you want to see a happy show, a man who is at the top of his profession, you must see Gordie Brown. You will be laughing all evening and telling your friends the next day.

Gordie has his own way with impressions, he must know thousands and Gordie’s impressions include perfect facial expressions and bodily movements to match. When you watch Gordie, he becomes your favorite celebrity.

I like the Cabaret Show Lounge because of its intimate atmosphere and the ability to see Gordie as he moves about in the audience.

Gordie opened for Louie Anderson, Randy Travis, The Righteous Brothers, Paul Anka, Rich Little, Barry Manilow and others.

Gordie is an actor, artist, musician, comedian, impressionist, singer and maybe more? This is a show you won’t forget.

Gordie Brown appears Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday, at 7 pm, in the Cabaret Show Lounge, at the Planet Hollywood.

Bio: An accomplished musician and composer, and extreme music lover, Gordie Brown’s diverse musical prowess has been an integral part of his career in entertainment. From writing and recording the theme song for the Emmy-Award winning animated series “Life with Louie”, to performing his popular musical parodies on stage, to writing and producing a growing collection of original compositions, Gordie’s music has gained notoriety in every corner of entertainment.

Singled out as a ‘great entertainer’ by Celine Dion, Brown delivers spot on impressions of such notable celebrities and artists as Garth Brooks, Robert De Niro, Elvis, Michael Jackson, Jack Nicholson and many more.  Gordie Brown Live Unplugged combines the best of Las Vegas entertainment into one nonstop high energy show. With comedy, singing and talent beyond compare, Brown’s return to the Strip in an intimate venue will be a must see.

“Rashida Diva Performs Magic at the Monte Carlo Spa & Spa”

Celebrity stylist Rashida “Diva” explains, “I see myself as a magician, I bring out your beauty, wherever you want the focus.

With my multiple specialties in hair styling, hair coloring and make-up, I look at the whole person. It’s not just finding one foundation, one color, or one look.

I’m mixing and matching colors and giving you a little here, a little there, just to be sure you look natural and true to your original skin tones.

With a foundation of professional experience since ’96, Rashida “Diva” knows the arts of make-up, hair styling and hair coloring.

Rashida explained, “I’ve been doing this so long, I just pick-up the skin tone and ask how my client wants to look?

It’s important for me to ask where she is going, that’s what makes the look. If my client is just seeing a movie or if she will be dressed for dancing then I should give her a “Red Carpet look”

This quick consultation with my client shows what she is into then I take it from there.

“Thrill to the Pulsating Rhythms of Il Divo’s Music”

December 4th, 2016 • by Sandy Zimmerman

The Il Divo World Tour appeared in Las Vegas with all of the pageantry and passion their fans expected. Il Divo performed the dramatic Latin rhythms from their latest seventh album “Amor Pasion”.

The quartet’s resonant voices carried throughout the showroom as they stood together at the top of the grand stairway for the opening their show. With life-size videos behind them, the men walked down the stairs, stopped to sit on the steps and changed the mood. They appeared so casual, so spontaneous in a more relaxed musical set.

Each man has a different personality and style yet together they are dynamite! With such passion in their songs, the men interpreted the music in their own way.

Il Divo’s moving performance created the feeling that tonight was very special! Their warm, personal comments always mean so much to the audience.

Close your eyes as you are transported to Spain while Carlos, Urs, David and Sebastien serenade you. The album’s name “Amor & Pasion” clearly expresses the feelings and emotions of Spain’s fiery music.

Their extraordinary mix of music brings people together to enjoy new interpretations as well as old favorites.

American by nationality, the tenor David Miller (born April 14, 1973) has been a professional opera singer prior Il Divo. He graduated from Oberlin Conservatory of Music in Ohio majoring vocal performance and took a Master in Opera Theater.

The Swiss tenor, Urs Toni Buhler, the long-haired singer, was born in Switzerland on July 19, 1971. He attended Amsterdam Conservatory before trained privately by famous tenors Gosta Winbergh and Christian Papis.

The oldest member, Carlos Marin (born October 13, 1968) is of Spanish ancestry but was born in Germany. With his deep voice, the baritone claimed the trademark as ‘primo baritono’ in loads of operas. His musical education included the lessons from the legendary tenor, Alfredo Kraus.

Providing the ‘pop’ voice in this band is Sebastien Izambard (born March 7, 1973 in Paris), the only self-taught member who has produced and written songs for many French singers.

Il Divo recorded 12 songs spanning a century of traditional tangos, smoldering boleros and classic mambas promise to set the stage for a very different Il Divo tour.

The multi-national four piece have gone on to achieve unparalleled success around the world with 30 million album sales, 50 Number 1 Records, 160 gold and platinum awards in over 33 countries.

Il Divo appeared at the Pearl Showroom, in the Palms Casino & Hotel.

Madonna’s Rebel Heart concert is the essence of a 21st Century grand production
show, a concert that was created by the world’s best designers, craftsmen and experts in every field. This production is one to savor for its entertainment values and to appreciate for all of the creative efforts and money that make it such a royal event for today’s modern audiences.

The changing imagery and themes keep the show alive challenging the audience with surprises so fast, they cannot look away.
Madonna’s Rebel Heart concert combines a kaleidoscope of vivid colors, videos, dazzling special effects and everything else her experts could add.

The non-stop drama and emotion in each scene tells stories of Samurai warriors, stripper nuns, flappers, Jesus’ Last Supper and more, all in Madonna’s EXPLOSIVE style.

Madonna’s dance numbers are interactive, very personal with mutual touching and double entendre. This is truly Madonna’s show, she provides her vast reservoir of talent to make it all happen!

Madonna’s quick costume changes made me wonder where or when did she have time to switch? Madonna should be complimented on her ability to sing during the show instead of lip-syncing as some other entertainers do.  Her stamina holds during the high-energy dance routines for over 2-1/2 hours.

I have been reviewing Las Vegas shows since the 80’s and vividly remember those
multi-million dollar spectacular production shows. Their heavy walls and enormous sets took time for the stage crew to move.
That was when the specialty acts appeared to fill-in and Siegfried and Roy began at the Tropicana’s “Folies Bergére Show.
Bally’s “Jubilee is one of the few old-style settings today.

With today’s electronic media and computer graphics, we hardly realize when reality begins when the sets change.  The visual experience creates the impression that there is a set yet maybe not.

The audience does not realize all of the back stage influences, all that it takes to put Madonna’s show together.

The set list pulled deeply from this year’s “Rebel Heart” album, opening with “Iconic” and moving through eight more of Madonna’s new tunes, including “HeartBreakCity,” which she performed on a spiral staircase, and “Living for Love,” presented here in a thumping trance remix.

The Rebel Heart Tour will visit 20 cities in North America and 16 cities in Europe and the UK through the end of 2015 with additional concert dates in the US, Australia, New Zealand, and Asia already confirmed for 2016. The Rebel Heart World Tour is produced by Live Nation Global Touring. A full list of tour dates and ticket information is below and can also be found at:

Madonna has been a woman who followed her own path; she is a rebel herself and   made her own path in life.

Madonna’s Rebel Heart Tour appeared at the MGM Grand Garden Arena with all of the pomp and ceremony of a royal event. This truly was a royal event, crowning Madonna as the continuing Queen of Pop.

Madonna’s fans have been waiting for her Rebel Heart Tour and the spectacular production show won their appreciation with a sold-out tour.

The set list provided a great mix of songs across the years to please all of her fans.

Madonna’s songs included current album Rebel Heart (the No. 1 Dance hits “Living for Love” and “Bitch I’m Madonna,” to classic fan favorites like “Material Girl” and “Holiday” and a “Dress You Up” medley that included “Get Into The Groove,” “Everybody,” and “Lucky Star.”

Even Madonna’s fans were involved with a fan-created artwork video montage during Madonna’s rendition of the song “Rebel Heart.” Her stirring vocal of

“La Vie En Rose” while playing a ukulele drew a standing ovation.

Known for pushing boundaries, Madonna’s fashions also stand-out as her own original creations. Working with both world renowned designers and new designers, the Rebel Heart Tour offers Madonna and Phillips designs, Phillips designs and collaborations with Alessandro Michele for Gucci, Alexander Wang, Fausto Puglisi, Jeremy Scott for Moschino, Nicolas Jebran, Miu Miu, Prada and Swarovski to create the sumptuous costumes.

Alessandro Michele for Gucci: Madonna wears an exotic gypsy outfit comprising a lurex-lace-and-jacquard bodysuit with an embroidered belt, lace short sleeves, and multi-colored trimmings, plus a black crêpe de Chine skirt with embroidered patches and black georgette ruffles.

She also wears a black crêpe de Chine and georgette shawl with embroidered patches and silk fringes, lace gloves with pleated jacquard ruffles. To cap it off, she wears high-heeled knee-high lace-up leather boots and a black hat adorned with silk flowers. Her dancers complement her in patchwork bodysuits with a mix of ruffles and multicolored trimmings and embroidered belts. These are then teamed with multicolored floral headpieces; pleated jacquard neckpieces; lurex shrugs (featuring pleated ruffles on the sleeves and multicolored silk flowers); brocade jackets sporting silk flowers, embroidered patches, and lace pleated ruffles at the bottoms of the sleeves; and lace “Tehuana” inspired capes with multicolored silk flowers.

The Rebel Heart Tour will visit 20 cities in North America and 16 cities in Europe and the UK through the end of 2015 with additional concert dates in the US, Australia, New Zealand, and Asia already confirmed for 2016.

Beauty Secrets of Hair Stylist Jennifer Pollock

October 13th, 2015 • by Sandy Zimmerman

Women wish that they can enjoy three days of glamorous hair but that sounds as though it would take too long if this was even possible. Yet Jennifer Pollock, Recharge Salon in the Palms Hotel, prepares ladies’ hair with no muss, no fuss in a fraction of the time you would expect.

Jennifer uses the Seven Brush Blowout, as well as several other little-known techniques for treating hair. Her beauty talents includes hair cuts, color, tape-in extensions, blowouts, baby lights and ombre coloring.

Jennifer felt, “For me, it’s always come really natural to me. I’m passionate about it. My biggest, strongest point is making a client feel good about themselves, I really, truly care about my clients and how they look and feel. It makes me feel like I’ve achieved a bigger thing than just doing their hair.”

Born in Albuquerque, N.M., and raised in Las Vegas, Pollock always knew she wanted to do hair.

The Recharge Salon offers mani-pedis, waxing, makeup application and eyelash extensions while clients relax in an upscale atmosphere with a professional staff

Jennifer explained, “It’s not really all about the services that we’re working with; it’s the inner beauty that we bring out more than anything, Clients are going to walk out of Recharge with a pep in their step.”

Seven-Brush Blowout

The technique of the Seven-Brush Blowout is very similar to the hot-roller technique. Using brushes with fine-texture bristles made with Japanese silk, the hair is blow dried while leaving the brushes in. Once they cool down, they’re taken out, the hair gets a final styling, and the end result is that Victoria’s Secret glamorous look. The second day, the hair has a softer look with loose curls, and the third day the hair has that beachy, relaxed look. “It’s the perfect treatment for a weekend in Vegas,” Pollock said. The blowout uses Davines, an all-natural product line.

The Recharge Salon is inside the Palms Hotel & Casino, located on 432 W. Flamingo Road, near the Las Vegas Strip. For information, call 702-842-6909.

“The Paso Robles Inn’s Steakhouse Offers Healthy Meals”

By Sandy Zimmerman

(Photos by Sandy Zimmerman)

Paso Robles attracts visitors as central California’s wine country getaway. They boast of having over 270 wineries within a 15-mile radius and 400 within 100-miles. Wine tasting is available at many restaurants, cocktail lounges and wineries. 

Paso Robles’ charming historic downtown is reminiscent of “small-town America”.  Visit the Paso Robles Inn’s historic buildings and see the murals in the lobby.

Kevin Highland, General Manager/ Food and Beverage Director of the Steakhouse Restaurant, discussed the Paso Robles Inn’s menu.

“Our Santa Maria barbeque consists of a 10-ounce tritip steak, ranch beans, grilled garlic bread and salsa. Santa Maria-style barbeque is a part of the local lifestyle. Since this is an agricultural area, every Saturday the nearby town of Santa Maria offers street barbeque, family style. 

Another favorite originating in the Santa Maria valley, the 10-ounce bites of tritip steak appetizer. The cook prepares the steak bites in large cubes skewered on large toothpicks. The steak bites are in the top sirloin family and originated in the Santa Maria valley.   

We serve USDA Choice Midwestern beef 100% corn-fed to heighten its tenderness with marbling to intensify the flavor. All beef is aged on the property and hand cut by the chef. 

The menu appeals to everyone and includes more than just steaks.

Even our comfort food is different. The chef folds the macaroni and cheese with Australian lobster, truffles and white truffle oil topped with parmesan cheese.

For a fireside breakfast, lunch or dinner, the Paso Robles Inn’s Steakhouse setting is romantic.

Produce grows all year in central California. In the summer and spring, they deliver the produce direct from the fields to the restaurant the same day, every day. Seafood arrives six days a week. That is fresh. 

Most of our food is organic or sustainable. We grow our produce on the property. Most of the food is organic with no pesticides. We buy the most natural products from local farms and meat without hormones or steroids.

TOYOTA's Radar Cruise Control System



“Reviewing TOYOTA PRIUS V”

By Sandy Zimmerman

(Photos by Toyota Motors.)

With all the news about Toyota’s hybrid cars, their Prius V (pronounced “vee”) has been an example of the hybrid with the latest safety features, gas savings and low carbon emissions.

A test-drive should be long enough to experience a car’s versatility, safety features and performance under different conditions. The test-drive from Las Vegas to Los Angeles allowed for a combination of highway and city driving.

Driving alone during the six-and-a-half-hour trip, the Lane Assist (LA) was important because it helps prevent accidents. When a driver strays across the marked lanes, the LA sends warning signals. This automatic response system would be most helpful if a driver falls asleep at the wheel or was distracted.

LA uses a camera mounted on the front of the car.

Many of Toyota Prius V’s safety features are integrated to work together. The Lane Assist works with the Radar Cruise Control system (RCC). Once the RCC is activated, a counter-steering force is automatically applied.

The RCC sets the distance between the driver and the car in front to adjust the speed.

These automatic responses automatically adjust the way the car and the driver continue along the road.

It is reassuring to know the car’s safety features are automatic as they work to protect the driver and passengers.

Running out of gas is a problem worring many drivers on trips. Since Toyota invented the hybrid, that is not a problem anymore.

When driving a hybrid, the gas engine continually switches with the electric motor to  keep using the electric mode.

The long highway drive was comfortable thanks to the wide bucket seats.

The James Bond Wine Table

May 15th, 2010 • by admin
When you visit Del Friscos, do not miss seeing the most amazing $1.2 million dollar James Bond table. Looking like a normal table at first, Jacque touched her remote control pad and the table suddenly opened to present the James Bond OO7 Films Wine Collection. Eighteen magnums of Cabernet wine from Napa Valley wineries each represent different Bond films. These one- of-a kind bottles are each laser-edged.
