Off the Strip Features Vegas Stories that Dig into the Historical and Interesting Facts of the Local Side of Vegas

Actors, athletes, cyberstars, locals, and performers are all part of the Vegas Stories which Off the Strip features. The theme of the Vegas Stories is the restaurants, businesses and activities people like to get involved in when they are in Las Vegas.

Fast Five / Actor Luis Da Silva Jr. has visited Las Vegas and told his own Vegas Story. Luis is an American actor, basketball player, author, and producer, who gained notoriety after headlining the 2001 Nike Freestyle ad campaign.

Luis’ favorite activity off the strip is Ping Pong Hall of Fame. His favorite activity on the strip, besides Miracle Mile shopping, is blackjack or playing slots at his favorite hotel, the Wynn. Luis’ favorite Vegas restaurant is Carbone, the Italian restaurant at the Aria.

Luis has a funny Vegas story and according to him, “I spent two days looking for my wallet that I thought I lost. Going in and out of stores, full of anxiety, calling every place, backtracking, wasted two days just to realize I was a jerk and I had a backpack and didn’t check my backpack. My wallet was on me the whole time. I didn’t know what I was thinking; I just got so comfortable with this backpack, and I didn’t even think to check that my wallet was in the backpack. If you got a backpack here in Vegas, don’t be a jerk, check your backpack before you get all frantic and high-strung.”
