  • Oh, My... what a fun party that was! In case you missed it, Tito and Mary Chavez celebrated 30 busy, fun and full years of being in Las Vegas very recently. Tito’s creative jewelery and Mary’s keen eye when it comes to showing off very good art is so obvious when one walks into their shop on our Bridge Street here. And as I write this, Tito is working on a very special project for me. He has vision far beyond mine when it comes to creativity!
