Our friends at LasVegasAdvisor.com reminded us that today (March 30, 2012) is, in fact, National Cleavage Day. Yes, National Cleavage Day is one of those flaky, made-up holidays created by some self-interested corporation (in this case, Wonderbra), but did we mention it has to do with cleavage? As a Las Vegas blog, we felt obligated….
Do we look out for you, or what? Here’s today’s irresistible Vegas twofer: Get two “Megaritas” for what should be the price of one inside the Village Seafood Buffet at Rio Las Vegas. No, that’s not a typo. They’re classic margaritas, just, you know, mega. The ridiculously reasonable $25 gets you not only 45 ounces….
What’s new at Caesars Palace? Well, among other things, Starbucks. The world’s largest coffeehouse company recently unveiled its newest Vegas outpost at Caesars, and now Sin City visitors can satisfy their coffee bean cravings just around the corner from the hotel’s registration desk. One for the writers among us: Note that Starbucks has no apostrophe,….
Toby Keith has made his mark in Las Vegas with his Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill at Harrah’s. It always feels like there’s a party going on in the joint, and we suspect that’s just the way Toby Keith intended it. Why do we suspect that? Because, well, because of the video….
It’s called a number of things. The “gambler’s fallacy,” and the “Monte Carlo fallacy,” and even “the fallacy of the maturity of chances.” We like that last one because it makes this blog sound smarter than it really is. But it all boils down to one basic, misguided belief: In games of chance, like roulette….
When you’re up for “Best New Restaurant” at a Las Vegas hotel, it’s a crowded field with plenty of competition. Las Vegas hotels are home to some of the world’s most acclaimed restaurants, after all. Central by Michel Richard at Caesars Palace has prevailed, however, in the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s just-announced “Best of Las Vegas”….
Blondies Sports Bar & Grill, in The Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood, is a reliably good time, and Living Social is currently offering up a deal for $40 worth of food and drink for $20. It’s likely O’Sheas casino will soon hand over the mantle of “Beer Pong Mecca” to Blondies, so you might….
It’s raunchy. It’s death-defying. It’s offbeat and hilarious. It’s sexy as hell. It’s one of the most talked-about shows on the Vegas Strip, maybe ever. Now, “Absinthe” is celebrating its 500th show at Caesars Palace. “Absinthe,” part adult circus, part comedy club and part burlesque show (with some jaw-dropping puppetry thrown into the mix), will….
Bill’s Gamblin’ Hall & Saloon is full of surprises. In addition to its ideal, Center-Strip location (on the corner of Flamingo and Las Vegas Boulevard), it’s also home to some of this blog’s favorite hotel suites, much larger, better appointed and much more affordable than you might suspect. These large, comfy suites get great word-of-mouth,….
Vegas Player magazine puts out a series of video segments featuring Vegas-related subjects, and we enjoyed this one featuring Timothy Henderson, Chef de Cuisine at Old Homestead Steakhouse at Caesars Palace. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UANJv7qONqU] We didn’t actually realize Old Homestead gets its meat from a specialty butcher on the East Coast, home of the original Old Homestead….
In Vegas, you either go big or go home. Here’s an over-sized flask, from HomeWetBar.com, that might make an interesting gift for those Vegas fanatics in your life. You can get the “Sasquatch Large Flask” online here. Other Vegas-friendly items of interest on the site include the roulette drinking game, tabletop roulette, a portable beer….
Here’s a juicy little Las Vegas tidbit: From 1959 to 1979, the Imperial Palace was called the Flamingo Capri. Soon, the Imperial Palace will be “retired” as part of the $550 million Linq development project, which means the hotel will get a new name. This blog’s rooting for the name “Lee Nover,” but that might….
How many comedians does it take to screw in a light bulb? We have no idea! We are a Las Vegas blog, not a mechanical engineer. We do know how many comedians it takes to win a comedy contest at The Improv, however: Just one. The famed comedy club recently launched a talent search which….
The lights we all know and love on the Las Vegas Strip are scheduled to go dark on March 31, 2012 at 8:30 p.m. (Vegas time) for Earth Hour. Earth Hour is sponsored by the World Wildlife Fund, and if any city knows about wildlife, it’s Sin City! In 2011, 135 countries took part in….
