In some respects, Aliante Golf Club's 18-hole, par 72 course embodies everything you might expect from a Las Vegas desert
course. The grizzled sands of an arroyo that comes into play on 14 holes. The sparse water hazards. The dazzling mountain views. But the layout also has the look of a course that, like a word processor that yearns for an acting career, refuses to be typecast. Contrary to the more open terrain common to most arid tracks, Aliante Golf Club stitches its fairways with pear and purple locust trees, which can be intimidating on holes such as the 2nd, a 472-yard par-four that all but requires an aggressive lash with a driver off the tee. As a reward for its unique character, the course has gained a host of award and accolades since it opened in 2003.

Naomi Rosen and Louise Carruth understand that tea is more than just a beverage. For Naomi, it’s the deep, complex flavors—from her position at Joy’s Teaspoon, she fills area pots with more than 75 loose-leaf teas and more than 30 spices. For Louise, it’s the community aspect. Enamored of tea’s ability to unite people, she frequently attends afternoon teas at assisted-living residences, where she bonds with residents over tea-leaf readings and tea-related yarns. The two have joined forces to organize the Las Vegas Tea Fest, which combines Naomi's extensive knowledge of her stock with Louise's appetite for togetherness. Their one-day event includes tea and food pairings, cooking with tea demonstrations, a traditional Chinese Wu-Wo tea ceremony, and on-site exhibitors such as Little Candle Tea Company. Tastings gather teas from countries such as India, Japan, and China, while local artisans hawk tea-related wares, such as giant teabags you can sleep in when you have a sore throat.
Binner Aviation and Flight Training's location at North Las Vegas airport gives it direct access to the immense flying space over the deserts of Nevada. It gives pilot trainees a sense of freedom that is checked by the outfit's stringent commitment to surpassing all FAA safety standards, which prevents students from buzzing cacti on fly-bys or landing on every aircraft carrier mirage they see. Instead, they'll be expected to exhibit the same degree of vigilance as their instructors, whether they're taking the controls of a Robinson R22 helicopter over the Las Vegas strip or keeping current with instrument ratings in the cockpit of a Cessna 172 under the scrutiny of the staff's FAA Designated Practical Examiner. If students commit themselves to the material, chances are they're destined for success as Binner Aviation and Flight Training and its six instructors boast a 100% student pass rate.
