Bio: Leslie Ventura is a staff writer at Las Vegas Weekly and Industry Weekly. She’s picked the brains of rock stars and DJs, covered countless shows, glimpsed into the oily world of professional bodybuilding and peered into the lives of Las Vegas’ movers and shakers. (She’s even been blessed by a shaman.) Prior to being a staff writer, Leslie served as the Weekly’s Calendar Editor and was a frequent contributing writer while pursuing her degree in Women’s Studies at UNLV. She runs on coffee and all things peanut butter-flavored.
