PhotograPhy by ray alam (beauty & essex, red rock); key lime Photo (Porsche) Six years ago, I took on Vegas magazine as publisher when I was working at its then parent company, Greenspun Media Group, as a group publisher. When Janie Greenspun Gale recently approached me about coming back to Vegas, now published by GreenGale Publishing, I didn't even hesitate. The company's ownership may have changed, but I have felt that I was coming home to the family and colleagues I admire and who inspire me. Vegas the city has evolved since then, as has Vegas the magazine. The refreshed editorial content and design reflect the cultural changes in the city, and being part of that will always be exciting for me. Working in advertising and publishing in Las Vegas, as I have for 30 years, is about keeping pace with the incredible speed with which new concepts open here. This summer, the city is abuzz with the recent star-studded open- ings of Intrigue at Wynn and Jewel at Aria. Baz Lurhmann's cabaret mashup, BAZ—Star Crossed Love, comes back to Vegas, at Palazzo. New dining options—from Clique Hospitality (four in Red Rock and Green Valley Ranch in only a few months!) and Tao Group's Beauty & Essex in Cosmopolitan—are making our jobs delicious. And we're celebrating the 10th anniversary of Red Rock all year long. There's a lot to celebrate this year, and coming back home is just the beginning. Vegas was joined by many great friends, including Daniel Burnett, Thomas Bruny, Jim McMichael, and Michael Printy, when we celebrated the 10th anniversary of Red Rock Resort at our Top of the Rock event; Andrea Bennett and I helped welcome the fantastic new Beauty & Essex restaurant in the Cosmopolitan; I joined Gaudin Motor Company's director of marketing Julie Cane for the unveiling of the sexy new 911 at Gaudin Porsche. 28 KIM ARMENTA Follow me on LETTER FROM THE PUBLISHER
