What’s On: The Art of Shaving

what's on las vegas coverJust so no one thinks I’ve been slacking off and doing nothing but making comics, here’s evidence to the contrary: The most recent (well, until a few days from now when another one comes out) issue of What’s On Las Vegas, featuring (aside from the raven-haired beauty distracting you on the cover) my stellar recap of a pampering session at The Art of Shaving inside the Mandalay Place shops at Mandalay Bay.

Yes, it’s a tough job, getting paid for undergoing a Royal Shave and writing about it, but you know, someone has to do it. Better me than you. And to be honest, the experience did give me a new appreciation for the, um, art of shaving. I now use a brush and aftershave and preshave oil and all that stuff … when I actually get around to shaving every few weeks.

Oh, and I’m still (though less frequently than I or my channel editor would like) writing about Las Vegas fine arts over at Examiner.com, in case you were wondering. I even posted something in the last 24 hours. So there.

    Didn’t I see an article on this place before from you? Or was it someone else?

    This place has been around for years (6 alone in Vegas), so there have probably been dozens of such articles. But not from me, and not in What’s On. But I have Tweeted about it before.

    Heh. I want to a place a lot like this in Scottsdale the day of my friend’s wedding. They gashed us groomsmen pretty good.

    Brendan – Yeah, that’s one of their biggest customer bases: Groom parties.
