Follow me on photography by Jeff gale 38 Fall is Finally upon us, as the legendary Las Vegas heat has departed for another year. The Nevada desert brings a bril- liant, unanticipated chill to the fall and winter months, blending well with the curated version of "cool" that our city has made its patented, iconic brand. The fall season also ushers me in as the new publisher of Vegas magazine, a role I am grateful to possess and eager to embrace. Having lived in Las Vegas for nearly 15 years, I love this community, and while I'm not from here originally, I proudly consider Vegas my true home. The city welcomed me from the moment I arrived. Have you ever wondered what makes a city truly great? In Las Vegas, being the young, vibrant, fast-growing metroplex we are, we think about entertainment, economic development, schools, healthcare, transportation, tourism, and other elements that affect the quality of life for residents, businesses, and visitors from every part of the globe. With its growing promise and ambition, Las Vegas is perfect ing it s management of t hese important areas every day. It feels exciting to live and work in the city today as we evolve, innovate, and re-create our brand: the food, the people, the activities… Viva Las Vegas! In that vein, here are a few of my current Vegas standouts: When you have a moment, take a ride down to the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health. Designed by internationally renowned architect Frank Gehry, its building—in addition to being an architectural wonder for the eyes—sees thousands of patients a year and more clinical trials for treatments of Alzheimer's disease than anyplace else in the world. The ravioli at Spago, inside The Forum Shops at Caesars, will leave you angry that you ever ate ravioli anywhere else. The staff is lovely and treats you like you visit every day. In a fashback to the future, visit the Las Vegas Neon Museum, located on six acres on Las Vegas Boulevard and dedicated to preserving and exhibiting original Las Vegas signs, many from the city's founding casinos. It's well worth the tour. The Drugstore Café at Wynn offers croissants that could claim a zip code of their own, yet they're light as a whisper and have a distinctive favor. Another highlight is the corner-store view, perfect for people watching. So here's to another bountiful fall, as Las Vegas never fails to offer a myriad of events, activities, and landmarks to please one's social, cultural, intellectual, and gastronomic senses. We hope you too fnd our city the best and brightest and want to be a part of it. M aur een Schafer Letter from the Publisher
