Man-about-town Dayvid Figler has come up with the perfect title for his storytelling series featuring local and national personalities. It’s called "The Tell."
Tonight’s launch at El Cortez will feature a half-dozen storytellers sharing first-person, unscripted, true stories on the topic of "Cheating."
"The Tell" is produced and hosted by Figler, a Las Vegas lawyer, writer and storyteller.
He has performed in San Francisco for the "Porchlight" storytelling series and in Portland, Ore., for the "Back Fence PDX," cities "where this performance art is all the rage," he said.
"The Tell" lineup includes author Beth Lisick ("Everybody Into the Pool") and actor Michael Bunin ("My Boys"). Different storytellers will participate at the monthly events. Tonight’s pre-event is tied into the Vegas Valley Book Festival, running Nov 3-7.
Admission is free, but seating is limited.
We hear the final tab for golfer Anthony Kim’s champagne-spraying spree at Jet nightclub (Mirage) on Monday came to about $80,000.
He went through about 120 bottles of champagne, including a six-liter bad boy of Dom Perignon that goes for $25,000.
An eyewitness said "most of it was sprayed."
At one point during the champagne shower, Palms resident DJ Exodus tweeted, "Umbrella to the DJ booth please it’s raining Rosè…!!!"
