Two Way Hard Three | Las Vegas Casino & Design Blog

I'm excited to announce that Dr. Dave Schwartz, head honcho over at UNLV's Center for Gaming Research (and of course, fellow Vegas Gangster), will be joining Two Way Hard Three as a contributor.

Dave's been blogging over at for years and going forward, you'll see a lot of that content published here instead. Also, some features like the casino carpet gallery will be transferred over as well (I look forward to fielding confused reader's demands for carpet).

This is so great. Dave is one of the smartest people I know and I'm honored that he'd consider contributing to this community.

One of the greatest things about series like Jeff's SIMPSON ON VEGAS are the incredible comments and discussion generated by y'all. I'm sure the same will be true for Dr. Dave's stuff.

Expect to see the first of his musings soon.

Welcome Dave!

Outstanding. I think it'll be a great fit. Dr. Dave's attention to detail and careful research never cease to amaze. I look forward to reading him here.

This is terrific news. TWHT has really become a powerhouse with Hunter, Jeff and now Dr. Dave. Excited about being able to read both Jeff and Dr. Dave here.

Brilliant! Hunter is slowly consolidating his power base so as to create a vise like grip on the title of Godfather of the Vegas Internet Mafia. Computer nerd AND political operator. I am In awe, sir.

Of course, the only down side is reduced coverage of Downtown, since it's a well known fact that Hunter doesn't like Downtown. Too many dirty and poor people.

Heh, well I think Chuck is the godfather if the Vegas online media but I'm super happy to have Dave on board.

For the record, the last time I stayed downtown (December), I had fun.

I think you just Proved My Point, Mr. Hillegas. You might have stayed downtown, you might have had fun downtown, but I don't recall you telling anyone about it while you were there...

Aww, forget it. I'm starting to make this look like a Vegas Tripping thread.
Anyway, this is going to make life easier for myself and a lot of other people. Schwartz and Simpson together with yourself makes this the best Las Vegas "enthusiast" site ever, IMO. Thanks for always working to make TWHT a better experience.
