It’s official. Football fans are cheering in their seats! (and probably some are declaring cheating and boo’s) The NFL’s Raiders announce that they are officially the Las Vegas Raiders.
“Today we begin a new chapter in our storied history. For today, Jan. 22, 2020, we are now the Las Vegas Raiders,” team owner Mark Davis said.
“Today Las Vegas becomes the nation’s capital, as in Raider Nation.”
The team, which is moving from Oakland, Calif., to Las Vegas, will begin play here in the upcoming season. The Raiders made the announcement today at the under-construction Allegiant Stadium.
Those in attendance included current and former players and Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak, who led the crowd in a chant of “Raiders. Raiders. Raiders.”
Davis, who thanked the construction workers on hand for their work in making the stadium a reality, said Las Vegas is getting more than a football team.
“You’re getting an army; you’re getting the Raider Nation.”
Davis said Las Vegas Raiders gear — jerseys, T-shirts, caps and the like — will be unveiled at the NFL Draft, which will be held in Las Vegas April 23 through 25.

About Billie Eilish
As Billie Eilish prepares for the July, 30th, 2021 release of her highly anticipated sophomore album ‘Happier Than Ever,’ the 19-year-old Los Angeles native remains one of the biggest stars to emerge in the 21st century. Since the release of her debut single “ocean eyes” in 2015, Eilish continues to shatter the ceiling of music with her genre-defying sound. Fast forward from her humble breakout, her album WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in the U.S as well as 17 additional countries around the world upon release in 2019, and was the most streamed album of that year. WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? was written, produced and recorded entirely by Billie Eilish and brother FINNEAS in their childhood home of Los Angeles. Billie Eilish went on to make history as the youngest artist to receive nominations and win in all the major categories at the 62nd GRAMMY® Awards, receiving an award for Best New Artist, Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Pop Vocal Album. Billie Eilish is also the youngest artist to write and record an official James Bond theme song, ‘No Time To Die.’ Most recently, Billie Eilish was nominated for four additional awards at the 63rd Annual GRAMMY Awards in 2021, and took home both Record of the Year for ‘everything i wanted,’ and Best Song Written For Visual Media for ‘No Time To Die.’ Billie Eilish’s forthcoming album ‘Happier Than Ever’ was written by Billie and her brother FINNEAS, who also produced the album.Post Views: 1

Memorial Day 2021 in Los Angeles won’t quite be back to normal, but it will be your summer kickoff weekend!
When is Memorial Day 2021?
Memorial Day 2021 is Monday, May 31, 2021.
L.A.’s Outdoor Movies
L.A.’s Best Beaches
Make the drive past Will Rogers and Surfrider beaches. This Malibu beach can hold crowds with plenty of onsite parking (pay at the lot or for free along PCH and Westward Beach Road) and lifeguards on duty.
A quintessential Malibu beach, this prime location makes for great people watching and three point breaks make this a perennial hot spot for both longboarders and shortboarders. Park along PCH—near the Spanish-style Adamson House, Malibu Country Mart and Malibu Pier—and trek past the lagoon onto the vast stretch of beach.
L.A.’s Best Hikes
Mount Hollywood (Griffith Park)
At the top of Mount Hollywood (the hill behind the Griffith Observatory, not to be confused with the Hollywood Sign-adorned Mount Lee), you’ll get a bird’s-eye crash course on L.A. geography. Its 360-degree views offer a glimpse of everything from the Verdugo Mountains to the Pacific Ocean (on a rare, smog-free day, at least).
Malibu’s Sara Wan Trailhead at Corral Canyon
As the trail begins, the noise of PCH and the sea breeze follow you up. But things quiet down—and heat up—quickly on this shadeless trail. Hang a left at the first fork—this way you can face the ocean during your descent.Post Views: 2
