Curling Center Coming to Las Vegas
The "Cards for Curling" event couldn't be taking place at a better time as it was just announced that a new full-time curling center is coming to Las Vegas.
FOX 5 reported on Aug. 9 that CurlVegas will be opening the full-time curling center next year at 3525 E. Post Rd. near Sunset Park. The park is expected to open in the first quarter of 2024.
