Vegas Bright is like Vegas Chatter 2.0

It was the very late night of Saturday, August 1st of 2015 when I sat at my computer thinking about how my favorite Vegas site, Vegas Chatter, cashed out for the last time the day before. My favorite site on the computer screen before me, now frozen in time and never to be updated again. No more unique perspectives, inside words and fresh reviews I had not only grown accustomed to but, checked each day (multiple times). Perhaps, like you, I knew there needed to be another Vegas Chatter, pronto!

Hi, I’m Michael Movestro, I’m the founder of Vegas Bright.

I first visited Las Vegas many years ago when a friend funded my first trip with bonus points. I loved Las Vegas ever since. Las Vegas is my “happy place.” I don’t live there, but I frequently visit with only a one hour flight from home (lucky me, I guess). My favorite thing to do in Vegas is to enjoy a nice cold gelato on a hot evening while watching the Bellagio fountains. I like gelato, and burgers a lot.

Enough about me, let’s talk about VegasBright.

Vegas Bright is like Vegas Chatter 2.0

VegasBright was started as a tribute to VegasChatter; heavily inspired by the VC tagline “so bright you can see it from space.” I reached out to former VegasChatter authors and contributors, and many of them came aboard. Vegas Bright serves as a home away from home for them, and for you readers as well. We’ve also welcomed new/aspiring Vegas lovers to try their writing hand here and continue to welcome more Vegas-lovers. We don’t look at this site with a separation of content writers and readers; we consider this a community. We involve our readers. We have had many Author For a Day challenges and will continue to have more. This site has come a long way since then; we’re continuously getting our sh*t together. I can guarantee you no porn slappers, though, and you can bet your $1 water on it.

So enjoy the writing and views of our writers and contributors, you can see everyone here. If you’re interested in writing here as well, please see our guidelines.

Since our inception, we brought you a metric shit-ton of news and reviews on entertainment, construction, fine dining, food-n-drink, gambling, hotels, nightlife, travel tips, and more. We also gave you lots of sh*t to catch up on. The best part is, we’re still going strong and we’re all volunteers.

With that said, it is my pleasure to welcome you here. If you have any questions or would like to contribute via tips, articles, etc., feel free to hit us up on the Contact Us page. Please enjoy your stay, there are no resort fees…and the parking is free :)

    Love this site, will certainly help quell my bouts of Vegas Blues until the next trip is booked.

  7. I read Vegas chatter religiously and was beyond gutted when it shut down! I’m just doing some research on downtown Vegas for an upcoming trip and thought I’d check out the site. I knew it wouldn’t be up to date but hey, surely they wouldn’t just press destruct on all that info? That’s when I came across this site! Keep up the good work, I’ll be sure to pop by often to satisfy my Vegas cravings!

  8. Found you guys today by accident and I am so glad to see that you are here!! I miss VC so much, but it looks like you may be able to fill the void. Plus, now my workdays will go by much more quickly. ;<)

  9. Delighted that this is up and running, VegasChatter was brilliant and if this is even half as good then it’ll be one of my top sites to visit.

  10. Just read about this site on vital vegas cant believe iv missed it looking forward to the posts glad to see someone has filled the VC void
