Cashman Field 51’s Team Store

1) Cashman Field 51’s Team Store

What to buy here: Las Vegas 51’s Minor League Authentic Cap and Jersey.

Las Vegas is home to the 51s, the Toronto Blue Jays minor league baseball team, and Cashman Field is one of the local’s favorite places to spend a summer evening. The 51s play 71 home games of Triple-A baseball in the Pacific Coast League and with some kind of daily promotion going on, spending an evening under the Nevada sky is a great diversion from the chaos of the Strip.

Originally owned by the San Diego Padres, the “Stars” played their first game on April 1, 1983 to a packed house of 13,878 fans. In 2001, the Los Angeles Dodgers took over the franchise and renamed the team the 51s. With a new logo to represent the alleged aliens or extraterrestrials that have visited the semi-secret government base known as “Area 51,” the team brought a new standard of baseball excellence to Las Vegas. In 2008, the Blue Jays took over the club.

The official jersey and cap are available at the 51s team store at Cashman Field. Jersey cost $80 and the cap is $30. If visiting in the off-season, September to April, call the team office at (702) 386-7200 to verify store hours or you can purchase them online and select local sports memorabilia stores.

Open: 11am-4pm Tuesday – Friday.

2) Sin City Gallery

What to buy here: erotic themed prints and paintings. Open Edition 8”x10” prints, $30. Signed 13”x19” prints, $225. Paintings $1,200 and up.

Las Vegas is best known for it’s resort hotels, lavish buffets, swimming pools, upscale shopping centers, and a menu of entertainment choices like nowhere else on earth, but the fine arts have always taken a back seat to the city’s more profitable and visceral indulgences.

With the completion of the Smith Center for Performing Arts, the Bellagio’s Fine Art Gallery, and the focus on the Art’s District, residents and visitors are now privy to some of the best music, dance and visual art available anywhere. In fact, Las Vegas has more than 30 world-class museums and exhibits spread throughout the city.

Dr. Laura Henkel, the miracle worker who brought the Erotic Heritage Museum to life opened her Sin City Gallery in the heart of Las Vegas’ new Art District. Every month this intimate gallery presents a new erotic themed exhibit. Whether it’s paintings, photography, sculpture or multi-media, each artist is handpicked and invited to show in this one-of-a kind venue.

Francois Dubeau is a gallery favorite and his stylish black and white paintings suggest unique erotic themes. Dubeau designs his paintings with a digital pen. With one lyrical stroke the first line is created. Then he adds more weight to each line as the image unfolds. Dubeau’s paintings are printed and signed in limited editions or on request the artist will paint the image on canvas.

Open Wed – Sat 1pm – 7pm and 1st Friday of each month until 10pm

Gambler’s General Store

3) Gambler’s General Store

What to buy here: World Series of Poker memorabilia.

Shuffle up and deal! These are the words uttered at the beginning of every main event at the World Series of Poker and if you’ve got an extra $10,000 lying around, you can join the largest poker tournament in the world at the Rio Hotel each July.

The WSOP is most commonly known for the “Main Event” where 8,000+ contestants compete for a first prize of $6-plus million dollars, a World Series of Poker diamond bracelet, and the title of Winner of the WSOP, which in poker circles is akin to a coronation. But the WSOP is more than just the Main Event.

Starting in early June, ten of thousands of poker players come to Las Vegas to compete in the more than 55 tournaments that lead up to the Main Event. Whether your specialty is Texas Hold‘em, Stud, Omaha hi-lo, Omaha, HORSE, or Heads-up, there’s a tournament for you. They even host a ladies event, an employee’s event, and several charity events.

If the $10,000 entry fee is a little steep, stop by the Rio Gift Store and pick up one of their WSOP mugs, hats, shirts or hoodies. Or if you want something actually used in the Main Event, visit the Gambler’s General Store and pick up 2 official decks of WSOP cards. These two decks were used in the 2009 WSOP and come in a handsome black box for only $28.

Spinettis Home Gaming Supplies

5) Spinettis Home Gaming Supplies

What to buy here: Collectible “Golden Nugget” Casino Chip and Dice, Custom Poker Chips.

Las Vegas was established in 1905 and until construction on Hoover Dam began in 1931 the town survived on illegal backroom gambling and prostitution. The new dam guaranteed more than 22,000 men and their families would move to the area, but the federal government refused to use Las Vegas as the hub. In response, the Nevada legislature legalized gambling on the local level knowing full well the workers would pour into Las Vegas on payday. Had the government used Las Vegas as the center of its operation, Las Vegas’ growth might have taken a different direction. As it happened, it opened the doors to a gaming industry that has grown beyond anyone’s wildest dreams.

Although downtown Las Vegas set the stage for gaming in 1932, the Las Vegas Strip didn’t get started until 1945 with the El Rancho Vegas and Bugsy Siegel’s Flamingo. The Golden Nugget Casino opened a year later in what’s now known as Glitter Gulch. Because casino chips were worthless outside the casino, they were always cashed in, but some found their way out of town and now have collectible value. This Golden Nugget chip is from the 1960’s and is a classic example of a vintage chip and has the trademark GN sign of the 40’s and 50’s. This chip in mint condition sells for $60. These modern day dice sell for $1 - $5.

For the poker aficionado, chips are made in 3 different materials. The finest chips are made of clay and usually have a cloth inlay in the center. You can easily identify these chips in casinos as the chips that show edge wear. Plastic chips are the cheapest, they are very lightweight, and usually have a gold or silver hot-stamp design in the center. And of course there are the epoxy blend chips that have a photo or graphic design printed on each side.

When it comes to home poker, the sky’s the limit. You can buy an inexpensive set of 300 chips for as little as $20 or upgrade to a set of clay chips with custom inlay, personalized carrying case and playing cards for as little as $300. You can or course spend more on chips with fancy inlays, personalized playing cards, an exotic wood carrying case, and even your own custom designed 9-man poker table, but most players are happy with a 500 chip set with box and cards for $99.

Open Mon-Fri 9am-5:30pm, Sat 10am-5pm, Sun 10:30-5:30pm

Clark County Coroner’s Office

6) Clark County Coroner’s Office

What to buy here: “The Jaw” Business Card Holder.

Here’s a gift you won’t find anywhere else. With the enormous success of the “CSI” television show, the Clark County Coroner’s Office decided to parlay some of their notoriety to setup programs to help educate and counsel kids at risk. And to support their endeavor they’ve designed t-shirts, mugs, caps, badges, pens, patches, scrubs and license plates, to add to their revenue stream.

Each year the local newspaper runs public service announcements for their cause and thousands of products are sold, but the big winner is “The Jaw,” business card holder. This replica of the lower jaw is a great conversation piece and might be the perfect gift for your dentist, doctor, speech therapist, or that gossipy neighbor who just won’t shut up. Made of resin-epoxy and colored to look like authentic bone, “The Jaw” is available at the Coroner’s Office Gift Shop (I know – go figure) or online for only $10. This would make the perfect “mystery gift” for the office Christmas party.

Open Monday – Friday 8:30am – 4:30pm
