I’m really excited to interview David Gavri of Vegas Faces about Las Vegas, Nevada. David’s tips for the best things to do in Las Vegas are awesome because he is a former professional poker player and standup comic but has since settled down into life as a real estate agent and investor. He loves the easy weather, beautiful nights and endless options that Vegas has to offer.
