About Sober in Vegas

Thank you for stopping by!

Sober in Vegas is dedicated to exploring activities, travel, and things to do here in Sin City.

Since I know sobriety and addiction triggers can be different for each person, I try my best to categorize posts as follows:

There may be a coffee shop or restaurant that I feature that does serve alcohol, but that isn’t the main offering of the establishment. That I would categorize as Sober-Friendly.

However, if there’s a place that doesn’t have alcohol for sale at all, I’ll categorize it as Alcohol-Free.

What this website isn’t:

  • This site is not a replacement for doctoral advice and I make no claims to be a health care professional.
  • Please seek the advice and help of a health professional if you feel you are suffering from alcohol abuse, addiction, or suicidal thoughts.


About Me:

I’m Kim.

I’m a visual artist. Writer. Former theatre maker. Hiker. Mama. Introvert.

I examined my relationship with alcohol in December of 2014 and stopped drinking entirely a few months later.  It wasn’t until a few years ago that I really took ownership of the word sober.

This blog is a project to help me (and hopefully others!) celebrate and strengthen their choice of sobriety, especially if they’re living in or visiting Las Vegas.

I should also mention that I don’t judge others. Everyone has the right to their own choices and some people don’t have issues with alcohol. I have many friends who still drink, and it doesn’t change my thoughts or feelings about them.

When not working or writing here on the blog, I spend most of my free time making art, thrifting, hiking, and exploring the city with my husband, daughter, and extended family.

Thank you for stopping by and happy sobering friends!
