AUGUST 1-4 is a good time to go shoe shopping in Vegas. The WSA (World Shoe Association) is having its biannual convention at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, Sands Expo and The Venetian.

DREAMSCAPE Development Group of Dallas is looking to build two stadiums as part of a $2.1 billion, 5-Star casino/condo/hotel project called Stone Castle Resorts on 65 acres near the Silverton. The 80,000-seat domed stadium and a 25,000-seat arena will be inspired by the design of the ancient Roman coliseums.

Seating would be cantilevered, putting the audience closer to the stage. They’re hoping to host “NCAA Division 1-A football, basketball and baseball, NFL football, Arena Football, NBA basketball, Major League Baseball, tennis, soccer, boxing, wrestling, speed auto and motorcycle racing, hockey, indoor track and field, mega music concerts, touring Broadway shows, and special rodeo events” (whew)!
