Juilliard-trained composer and conductor Walter Jacques Taieb, the man behind WJT Photography, channels his artistry into a visual medium with his photography, creating portraits that have appeared in top fashion and glamor magazines, as well as frame-ready boudoir shots. He captures these images inside his downtown Las Vegas studio, though he also regularly travels to clients' homes or hotels if it makes them more comfortable or suits their vision for the portrait, such as getting the bellhop's luggage cart or a particularly enticing complimentary breakfast in the shot. Taieb prides himself on giving direction to inexperienced models and making them feel comfortable.

Themes include Camelot, pirates, a beach party, zombies, vampires and the classic Elvis.

Chef Sergio Perez left his native Havana with his mother's recipes in tow more than 20 years ago, and he still uses them to whip together Cuban fare at The Florida Café. For the past 15 years, he's been crafting cuban sandwiches, paella, slow-roasted pork, fried cow, and shrimp enchiladas from this eatery, which calls the Howard Johnson Hotel home. He and his kitchen staff also prepare breakfast dishes such as eggs with plantains and cuban toast. Sergio augments his list of eats with live Cuban music and an array of wines and specialty cocktails, including the original mojito made with Cruzan light rum, lime juice, mint leaves, and rock-candy syrup from Mount Rushmore's four giant lollipops—gifts from Cuba.
