The first week of November is known for SEMA, and its less sexy brother's show, AAPEX. The Las Vegas Convention Center was taken over by cars, while the Sands Expo was all about motor parts and accessories.
Whether it's American Muscle or Imports, both were featured at SEMA in a very big way. Take a look at some of my favorites:
If fast cars weren't enough adrenaline for you, how about a run with thousands of people on the Strip, at night? Whether you're a runner or not, the Rock 'N Roll Run Las Vegas is definitely 1 of the biggest and best running events that anyone can participate in. It started with the expo on Friday at the LVCC where you pick up your "Bib", see the medals, take pictures, sample healthy food and beverage, shop from vendors offering all things "runner". Over 8500 runners participated in the 5K run on Saturday November 12th, ending with the 10K and Marathon runners on Sunday night. Not to mention the people, DJ and bands (I swear I saw KISS) that performed and cheered you on during the run. Did I mention Snoop Dogg performed on Sunday? Yeah, it's a party, all happening right on the strip. I'm sure the cab drivers were happy with us. Other than New Year's Eve, I think this is the only private event that shuts down the strip. Hashtag #STRIPATNIGHT. If you have never been, go!
While in Vegas, when you need to loosen up, get in shape and have a good time, check out DDW Collective Dance Studio couple streets over from center strip on the other side of Interstate 15. I had the opportunity of hosting the ribbon cutting ceremoney and met Denise, the wonderful owner, along with a great team of teachers.
