DMV to Nevadans: Stay Away Monday

DMV to Nevadans: Stay Away Monday

 

If you have a November deadline for business at the DMV, department officials don’t want to see you Monday.

Department officials are asking motorists to use alternative services this coming Monday or to delay visiting an office until later in the week.

“Happy holidays from our family to yours,” DMV Director Bruce Breslow said. “Enjoy your time more by staying away from the DMV on Monday.”

The Monday after Thanksgiving is traditionally the department’s busiest day of the year, leading some of the staff to call it “Black Monday.”  Wait times can easily double or triple, to two hours or longer. Motorists can always check current wait times on the department’s website or iPhone application.

Las Vegas Valley Welcomes First Distillery

Ribbon will be cut Friday for Nevada's first distillery. The Las Vegas Distillery opens its doors at 11:30 a.m. The distillery is in Henderson near Warm Springs Road and U.S. 95 close to the Galleria Mall.

Visitors will get a chance to tour the facility and see how spirits are made. They'll also get a look at the copper pots, dubbed the Las Vegas Copper Angels, being used to make the state's first bourbon. Everybody at the ribbon cutting will be able to bottle Nevada Vodka made with wheat grown at Winnemucca Farms. They'll also be among the first 111 Vegas Whiskey Founders.

"First, everybody thought this is a brewery. No, this is a distillery. We'd like to manufacture the first whiskeys and bourbons, vodka and gin," said distillery owner George Racz.

Already, bottles of the first vodka stand ready to head to local distributors. The Henderson Chamber of Commerce is holding up Las Vegas Distillery as the city's best example of small business entrepreneurship.
