(Photo of DAVID GOLDRAKE during interview and “ESCAPE” Photo by Sandy Zimmerman)

was invited to attend the closing night of “Imaginarium” after a successful run and discussed his plans in his dressing room after the show.

SZ: “Imaginarium” was so different, I heard you’re going to produce a new show.”

GOLDRAKE: “We had 369 shows in one and a half years and it’s been an amazing adventure at the Tropicana Hotel. We’ve had lots and lots of support through the local community as well as people from around the world coming to see us. This has been an amazing run.”

SZ: “Your show has changed from when I saw it opening night, you added so much more and you even hung from a rope in the ceiling being propelled across the audience to the stage.”

GOLDRAKE: “Yes, we’ve changed a lot of the show. When we opened,we had a vision for the show and were able to implement a lot of that vision in the last 16 months and happy we’ve gotten to this point. I’m excited to continue the progression and illusions of the show in our next venues.

We plan to do a new show in 2019 and are currently talking to a couple of people here in Las Vegas and have some options which are extremely interesting. I’m very excited to be able to develop the show and go in a new direction possibly.”

SZ: “There so much in this show how can you add any more?”

GOLDRAKE: “The skies the limit!”

SZ: “Can you tell us anything about your new show, I know it must be a secret!”

GOLDRAKE: “I won’t tell anything yet but you can expect it’s going to be bigger than the one we currently have, or it is going to be a completely new concept which is going to be a 360 degree surrounding environment. It all depends on whoever gets the show. I’m very happy to work on both projects now.”

#   #   #

“Imaginarium” is a spectacular show with exciting acts combined with magical feats, grand illusions, dancing routines, sideshow performers, and especially Goldrake actually performs Houdini’s dangerous under water escape as he perform on-stage almost the entire time of the show!

“Chef Kenny creates the difference to Asian Vegan

By Sandy Zimmerman
(Photos by Sandy Zimmerman and Chef Kenny)

When you taste Chef Kenny’s Asian Vegan cuisine,it’s an experience you will long remember!

Savor the delights of Kenny’s real Vegan cooking and see how
healthy food should taste.

Chef Kenny explained, “I have Mandarin, Vegan, sushi,
and some dishes that I created myself. Some dishes
replicate Kung Pao chicken and beef converted to plant-based food.

On my menu, I have 17 Chinese dishes and from 12-15 on the Vegan side with sushi rolls.”

Most customers love my cooking. They say, “Chef you are so amazing. They love the sushi I created and continue to create.

I offer Vegan salmon, Vegan tuna and Vegan eel. I want to inspire people to see how we do real Vegan food.

I cook a lot of dishes just like beef, shrimp and fish- looks like, tastes like, and the texture is very close. Soy is substituted with delicious sauces.

Before I started my restaurants, I was involved in a wholesale business so I know how to choose food and pick up very good ingredients.

In 1988, I owned three restaurants in San Diego, moved
to Las Vegas and sold meat and seafood to hotels then I opened my first Vegan restaurant, in 2016, the Vegan Burger, and Chef Kenney’s opened last week. I want a Vegan sushi bar next year.

This is my seventh restaurant. In 2001, Other vegan restaurants use simple ingredients and just a few selections, people get more here.

For information, call 702-889-0939. Chef Kenny’s Asian Vegan Restaurant is located at
6820 Spring Mountain Road, and Rainbow. (Soybeans are legumes that originated in East Asia)

Bruce Merrin, known nationally for his distinguished career as President/Owner of the Celebrity Speakers & Entertainment Bureau, Inc., marked the sixth anniversary of his Sterling Club (social and business networking) at the Heartland Mansion.

Congratulations to Merrin for six years of bringing all the most prestigious worldwide meeting planners, as well as famous sports stars, entertainers, best-selling authors, newsmakers, politicians and distinguished guest speakers to the Sterling Club each month to assist members.

Merrin explained, “Of course we also book leading business authorities, motivational and inspirational speakers. This month we booked actor William Shatner and Dr. Wayne Dyers for big events in Florida.”

The beautiful Russian songstress Irina Nero headlined Bruce Merrin’s party and I had a chance to interview Irina before her show.

SZ:  “What type of music do you sing?”

IRINA: “I grew up listening to Frank Sinatra and other American singers. American music and movies are popular in Russia, I like soul, gospel and old style music but love jazz a lot.”

SZ: “I liked your personal interpretations and additions to each song during the rehearsal.
How long have you been singing?”

IRINA: “Since before I could walk!”

SZ: “Las Vegas is the best place for you with all of the entertainment here.”

IRINA: “I sing in the Italian American Club, Tuscany, and other beautiful restaurants in Las Vegas. If you want to spend an amazing dinner come to see me on Saturdays at the Mayakovski Russian Restaurant. I will sing for you all the beautiful Russian, American and songs from Armenia and other countries.”

SZ: “You must have a great repertoire!”

IRINA: “When I came to America, I only knew 12 songs, now I sing 70.”

SZ: “You probably know whatever song they want to hear.”

IRINA: “I want to tell my appreciation to Bruce Merrin for the anniversary of his Sterling Club. I wish Bruce good health, great mood, amazing happiness and what else, a huge success. Bruce is doing an amazing job working every day with a lot of energy and gets a lot of results.”

Merrin’s first major PR client was Michael Landon. He explained, “When I booked Michael on the Johnny Carson Show, we were both invited to Johnny’s home in Malibu for dinner. Johnny and Michael gave me the idea to begin my Celebrity Speakers & Entertainment company. They were my first two clients. We have booked every major President of the U.S. since Pres Reagan. We are currently booking the BEYOND THE SECRET presenters from the new movie/DVD for worldwide engagements.”

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. Call: (702) 777-6737.

The Golden Tiki is the vision of hospitality veteran Branden Powers, in collaboration with Seth Schorr, Jeff Fine and Joe Cain, The Golden Tiki has spared no expense in recreating the classic mid-century Tiki bar, reminiscent of Don the Beachcomber and Trader Vic’s storied establishments. The cocktail menu features nostalgic classics and new creations, as well as a traditional Martinique TI service and a special treasure chest VIP experience.

PAUL JUMA- Hair Colorist & Extensions Specialist

Before trying a new “look”, make sure it is the right “look” for you. Many hairstyles, hair colors and make-up techniques will not work on everyone.

Paul Juma, hair colorist and certified hair lock stylist and extension specialist, explained, “I use the latest products that help in improving the application of extensions. Now extensions are applied faster and easier. With the latest products, I do not have to apply glue or bonding material on the hair.

First the client’s hair color is matched with the extensions before they are applied. The process is finished with a custom haircut and style.

The hair looks thicker and fuller while it keeps growing.

Compared with the traditional method of applying hair extensions, this method is safer and does not damage the hair. The Hair Locs extensions system is becoming “the favorite” method for any hair.”

As a color specialist, Paul blends the hair colors and combines different shades to become more coppery or more vibrant. The colors are going to stand out.

Another beauty expert, Carolyn Allen, make-up artist, knows the best techniques for all clients. Whether you want to keep in style with wide-open eyes or longer eyelashes, she knows the latest looks.

The “nude look” refers to wearing make-up with natural tones for a healthy glow.  Shimmering metallic eyelids stand out during an evening of dining and nightlife.

When you meet someone, your face is the first thing the person sees. You should try a make-up session or lesson. How can you look good and create the best image? Carolyn studies each client to customize his or her looks.

Ask Carolyn how you can change your beauty regimen with the seasons. Just as you buy different fabrics for your clothes during the summer in contrast to winter other changes should be made.

Juan Mejia, hairstylist and extensions specialist, has an international flair with hair. He is familiar with styles from the United States and Mexico.

Juan suggests a consultation before you make decisions. Discuss the type of hairstyle you prefer, your lifestyle and bring photographs of any style you like.

If you are too busy to spend time on your hairstyle, a quick, short style may be best. For the client who wants a dramatic “look”, Juan is ready with suggestions.

Juan’s extensive repertoire of styles along with his creativity provides the perfect basis for your hairstyle. He even accents his own hair with a distinctive touch of red. Juan has tips for protecting hair during the winter.

Paul Juma, Carolyn Allen and Juan Mejia are at the Cristophe Salon of Beverly Hills in the MGM Hotel. Cristophe is at 3799 Las Vegas Boulevard South, in Las Vegas. For information, call (702)-891-3339.

The Cristophe Salon of Beverly Hills at the MGM Grand Hotel, in Las Vegas, keeps up with the latest products and techniques for their staff.

Hertz Car Rentals- celebrating their 95th Birthday!

January 1st, 2013 • by Sandy Zimmerman

Hertz Car Rentals is celebrating their 95th Birthday!

By Sandy Zimmerman

(Classic Photos by Hertz Rental Cars)

The story began back in 1918 when 22 year old Walter L. Jacobs opened a car rental company with 12 Model T Fords in Chicago. He repaired and repainted the cars himself.     

By 1922 Walter’s yearly revenue totaled $1,000,000 which was considered big money then, maybe not now. His car rental company was sold to John Hertz who was the president of Yellow Cab and Yellow Truck and Coach Manufacturing Company.   

Paula Rivera, Hertz Manager of Public Affairs, reminisced, “At that time, owning a car wasn’t a main-stream American thing. If people wanted to get around besides using a bike, bus or train, the only other option was to rent a car. I believe he only charged .10 cents an hour.”  (Continued)

Have Needle, Will Sew!

Sew-lutions makes sewing easy!  Sew-lutions is like solutions but with sewing solutions.  Deborah Miklosko, the owner of Sew-lutions, offers suggestions to help her clients brighten up their accessories, to learn special embroidery techniques, quilting designs, and much more. Create personalized gifts they will always remember or sew 3-Dimensional beaded multiple flower pedals on a jacket or purse.

The ancient art of quilting began in Egypt, continued through the Middle Ages, and was very popular during the time of the early colonial settlers in the United States.

The art of embroidery, or intricate needlework, also has ancient origins. I am always amazed at the beautiful embroidered designs that are displayed in clothing and linen around the world. Some embroidery techniques were adapted from ancient Chinese paintings.

With the bad economy, this is the reasonable way to make your own creations. Your clothes could have the colors, size, and decorations exactly the way you want them.

They offer beginning sewing classes to assist in providing a foundation for learning the basics of how to sew and getting acquainted with the sewing machine.

Enjoy Life at Day Care

July 4th, 2011 • by Sandy Zimmerman

If you work during the day and worry that your parents are alone at home, Nevada Adult Day Care is the answer.

Adults can have a safe environment, a place where they can be entertained and meet people.

Just think of everything that senior residential communities offer, but at Nevada Adult Day Care you can go home at night!

Chris Vito, Nevada Adult Day Care, President & Chief Executive officer, explains, “We strive to stimulate, educate, socialize, and exercise our clients.

A lot of clients were almost stoic because they just sat around their home watching television.

It is a healthy environment when people have the opportunity to meet others of the same age and interact with each other.

There is so much for them to do all day.

We have a special room for card games and bingo to stimulate their minds with mental exercises.

Different activities are  scheduled every hour with alternatives if a client wishes.

Our preventive program includes checking blood pressure, blood sugar and medication management to be certain if the doctor says the medicine should be taken at 9 am and 2 pm that is exactly when our client will receive the medicine.

Each client’s health is monitored daily. With three RN’s, LPN’s, a rehabilitation nurse, licensed occupational speech therapist, and our Director of Nursing, Christina Vito, we are ready for emergencies. Christina previously took care of open heart surgery patients and emergency medicine.

This should give the client’s families peace of mind while they are working during the day.

Restoring Historic Art

“Restoring Ancient Art”

By Sandy Zimmerman

(Photos by Sandy Zimmerman except the Before and After shots.)

Marcin Szymczkowski, the owner of Atelier for Fine Art, is a man who has an unusual profession

restoring and conserving fine art, museum pieces, antiques, sculptures, gold leafing, touch ups,

and frescos.



You must have seen these men depicted in films and on television programs in an honored

tradition dating back to early times.

Today they work for private collectors, institutions, auction houses,

and museums to preserve our heritage.

Marcin explained, “You have to like what you do, passion is the most important thing.”

He travels around the world to attend symposiums in order to learn the latest scientific

restoration and preservation techniques.



It is exciting work as each day is different.

Marcin seems to like challenges as he restores different types of fine art.

He feels, “The restoration of paper is very important because paper is the first document that

disappears when involved with light.

We still care about paper because electronics will not replace it.”

Marcin emphasized, “The first and most important thing is that we must NOT do anything to do

any more damage.

Second, all of the work MUST be reversible.

These are expensive art pieces and antiques that are centuries and centuries old.

We have to preserve them and make sure there is no damage.

Everything we put on has to be very simple to take off.

For example, if we repair a 19th century oil painting, the first step is always cleaning to determine

the original color.

Sometimes under the old varnish it is dark brown and you can’t see the artist’s signature.

is in 3-4 stages depending upon the condition of the painting.

There’s a Horse for Every Rider

“There’s A Horse for Every Rider”

By Sandy Zimmerman

(Photos by Sandy Zimmerman)

I wanted to visit a ranch to get away from the city and I did, but was surprised that this ranch is right

in Las Vegas!

Sitting on just under two acres, the Dream Walker Ranch is not a dude ranch.

The owners, Jenn and Matt Soria, really love their horses.

Jenn feels, “One of the greatest things about horses is that they are so therapeutic.

When you are on your horse and out in nature,

the only thing you think about

is relaxing, all your problems and week stress

seems to go away.

When you come back and put your horse up after a great ride

puts a smile on your face and really puts

things in perspective.

The tough challenges of life are not so bad any more.

This is what it is all about, enjoying life.”

You do not need a psychiatrist!

It is so nice to be able to get away from the city.

I like to go to the mountains, wilderness, desert and places near Las Vegas.

Jenn agreed, “Absolutely, we feel the same way about

riding on the weekends.

Matt and I bring our horses in the trailer along with some friends

and we go up to Mt. Charleston, Lee

Canyon, Kyle Canyon, Red Rock Canyon, Valley of Fire.

We are so close.

There are some beautiful places to ride, a lot of choices.

We try difficult terrain each week as a test for the horses.

Most of our friends are not experienced riders.

It is a great way for us to get a feel for the horses and interview the riders

to see how they liked them.

This is a great experience

and so much fun to go up

there and ride.

We are very lucky that they are in our backyard.

You are on your horse, one with nature, for a wonderful experience.”

Just like in the old west, they ride around Las Vegas but there are no hitching posts.

Since I don’t know one horse from another, I would want to deal with a ranch that is reputable, one

that we can believe when they say the horse is trained especially if someone has a child the family

does not have to worry.

Jenn feels, “There is a horse for every rider whether you are looking to do things more advanced or for

a family horse.

This way the buyer can be sure the horse is adaptable to trails as well and can cross streets around

stores without having issues.

We try to make the best match possible because ultimately I want them to be happy and the horse to

have a good home.
