hunger-games-mockingjaySome of the best stories to ever be told on film have been told in trilogies (or trilogies with a final chapter split in two, but who’s counting?)  With the release of the first part of the third installment of the popular Hunger Games franchise, Mockingjay, Pt 1, scheduled for Nov 21, Galaxy Luxury+ Theaters at Cannery Casino Hotel are giving you the chance to see the story in its entirety for just $20.

Classic-spaghetti-carbonaraPlanning to run in this year’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon and Half Marathon? This popular event, being held over the November 14-16 weekend, will benefit the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America. The weekend culminates on Sunday night with the marathon beginning at 4:30 p.m.  However, the entire three-day event is packed with activities: including parties, live music, the Health and Fitness Expo and more. Runners from all over the world pack Las Vegas for three days of non-stop fun.

One of the many key allures of this unique run is also one that might have you thinking about your pregame eating strategy – the marathon starts well into the evening.  Although you may choose to portion your meals a little differently than you would for a day race, the basic fundamentals of pre-run nourishment still apply.  So where and what should you eat in the day leading up to the race once you’re in Vegas?  At Cannery, we’ve got enough options to fuel you up for one rockin’ run.


nhra lucas oil drag racing series at the strip las vegas motor speedwayWe had screaming guitars, wild energy, and head thrashing with an intensity never seen at any musical event. The Life is Beautiful event produced three days of head-swinging rocking out, gluttony, and sleepless, yet invigorating nights. Flowing and glowing from the Ferris wheel outward, the fest gave us the Foo Fighters, with a nearly never-ending selection of songs that spanned two decades and every wild mood a human can feel.  From The Colour and the Shape from 1997 to favorites from the Foo Fighter’s debut album, bass player Nate Mendel and guitarists Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear kept the crowd begging for more throughout the fest.

But now that Life is Beautiful is over, is life just a drag? Not with the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series coming to Las Vegas from November 6-9 at the Strip Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The event is four days of bone crunching, knuckle busting excitement, so pack your sunglasses and earplugs, along with plenty of energy. As the NHRA advertises: “come early, stay late, and be prepared!”

The first rounds bring you Funny Car, Top Fuel, and Pro Stock - with 24 heats and 21 elimination rounds. Watching the qualifying rounds gives you a close up, in-your-face opportunity to feel the intensity of the pits, and predict how track and weather conditions may determine the ultimate winner. With the Lucas Oil competition, many times the races are so close, the winner comes down to which driver had the fastest reflexes and most precise strategies, rather than which car had the most explosive horsepower.
