Gold & Silver Pawn, the Pawn Stars pawn shop, will be closed August 25-30 for renovations. They have already done a few renovations and expansions due to the success of the show. They have not announced the details of the latest renovations, but it must be extensive if it is going to close the shop for a week.
Total Rewards is doing a short-term promotion where you can earn 20¢ off per gallon at Shell for every 500 Tier Credits earned instead of the regular rate of 10¢ off per gallon. The promotion runs August 19-28, 2013.
See my Save on Gas with Total Rewards post for more info on the Total Rewards / Shell Fuel Rewards Network program.
I make it a point not to cover casino game strategies on my site. I would rather point you to other resources that specialize in that. If you are interested in learning more about video poker strategy, you might want to attend one of Bob Dancer’s Video Poker Classes. They are at South Point on Tuesday afternoons from September 10 – November 19th. Each week covers a different video poker variation.

If you can’t make it to a seminar, you might want to check out his strategy book Video Poker for the Intelligent Beginner or his Video Poker for Winners
software. I practice with Video Poker for Winners before every trip and I use it to run additional simulations for bankroll management, speed and accuracy.
During the Photoshop World Conference, the Neon Museum will be offering an Amateur Photography Tour. On the regular tours, photographers can only bring a single camera without a tripod or any extra equipment and must keep moving with the group. For the Amateur Photography Tour, photographers will be able to bring in whatever equipment they want (within reason, I’m sure) and will be allowed to take the time to set up their shots. This is a great opportunity.
The hour-long tours are on September 5th from 6pm to 7pm. The tour costs $75 ($60 for locals). Space is very limited and the museum is not allowing assistants or models. For more information or to make a reservation, email firstname.lastname@example.org
Update (Sept. 23)
These tours are tentatively planned to occur once a month. The next tour will be October 3rd. The fees and rules are the same as they were for the September 5th tour.
