Lucky Night

| July 30, 2013 | Parties

What happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas—sometimes it comes to Newport. Specifically, for Pretend City’s Viva Las Vegas poker tourney at Big Canyon Country Club. About 125 gamblers played at casino-style tables, with Hirad Emadi presenting the winning hand. They also threw down the dollars for live auction items such as a James Bond package. A performance from Matt Mauser of the Tijuana Dogs (at the VIP pre-party) added more fun to the affair, which raised nearly $200,000 for the museum’s educational programs.
