Strip Tips: On your mark, get set … shoot video

This week on the Strip …

Luxor ‘Race’

Are you athletic? Competitive? Or know how to edit a video to make it look like you are? If so, the Luxor wants you for their “Race Through the Pyramid.” Make a video showing why you and your teammate should be chosen as competitors for a tantalizing Luxor prize package and submit it to www.luxor.com/racethroughthepyramid. Four teams will be selected to “compete” for an August vacation package that includes round-trip airfare for two to Las Vegas, three nights in a Luxor suite, $500 food and beverage credit, two tickets to Criss Angel: “Believe,” two tickets to Carrot Top or “Fantasy,” a $250 spa credit, two tickets to both “Bodies … The Exhibition” and “Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition,” and free table and bottle service at LAX nightclub. The public will vote for the winner through social media sites. Submit your video before July 23.

Car facts

The Auto Collections at Imperial Palace now offers a new audio tour. Visitors can hear the historic information about the 60 vehicles that make up the collection, including the limo used by John F. Kennedy a week before his assassination; the Suburban from “The Sopranos”; and one of the collection’s most popular vehicles, Eleanor, the Mustang from the 2000 movie “Gone in Sixty Seconds.” That car, which was built for filming and driven by actor Nicholas Cage, is also on sale. If you’ve got $375,000 burning a hole in your pocket, Eleanor can be yours. Admission into The Auto Collections is $11.95; $8 for children younger than 12 and seniors older than 65.

Hot dog!

Why is National Hot Dog Day at the end of July? Seems like the Fourth of July would be the appropriate day to pay homage to this all-American food. But we don’t pick the holidays, so get ready to celebrate National Hot Dog Day July 23. Tacos & Tequila at the Luxor will honor the humble wiener by offering their Sonoran hot dog for $9, a discount off the normal price of $11. The Sonoran has a Mexican twist, further complicating this tribute to hot dogs, but it sounds tasty. It’s a half-pound, all-beef dog served with bacon, two kinds of jalapeños, pico de gallo, pinto beans, caramelized onions and mustard.

Question

How far is too far when walking the Strip?

You can see the top of a hotel building, so it must be close, right? Well, not really. The whole Strip is about 3.6 miles, from Sahara Avenue to Russell Road. Under normal conditions, that isn’t all that far. An average person with an average level of fitness could walk that in about an hour. But the Strip does something to average people. They set out with a destination in mind and end up walking from one property to another, taking in the sights and sounds and tasting the libations. Combine that with the summer sun, in all its blazing, 100 degree-plus glory, and you’ve got less-than-ideal conditions for walking the Strip. The best thing to do is break it up into manageable chunks. Use the monorails, buses and taxis to help you do your sightseeing. And it’s a good idea to always carry a bottle of water with you.
