Cruising The Strip, we were happy to see the near-complete new escalator just outside PBR Rock Bar inside The Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood. Construction of the $2 million escalator seems to have happened in record time. Currently, when pedestrians reach the end of the overhead walkway at the corner of Las Vegas Boulevard….
A slew of stars, including Jason Statham and Jennifer Lopez, came out to stroll the red carpet at Planet Hollywood for the premiere of a new action flick, “Parker.” Jason Statham has made a tradition of opening his films at Planet Hollywood, saying, “I love this place. I’ve been coming here who knows how long…..
Two new tribute shows have opened at V Theater inside The Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood, “Country Superstars” and “Tribute Royalty.” “Country Superstars” features a live band and impersonators portraying country hit-makers like Tim McGraw, Reba McEntire, Brook & Dunn, Willie Nelson and others. “Country Superstars,” which previously had a successful run downtown, performs….
The latest Jason Statham action flick will get its world premiere at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas on Jan. 24, 2013. Jason Statham, co-star Jennifer Lopez and other celebrities will walk a red carpet outside the hotel’s “Peepshow” theater at 6:30 p.m. The public is invited to ogle and gawk, although not necessarily in that….
If you stand in just the right place when you’re entering Planet Hollywood, and tilt your head at just the right angle, and if the sky is crystal clear just after sunset, and if you move to the perfect spot so you can get a glimpse of the Paris Las Vegas balloon, too, this is….
It looks like celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay has another Las Vegas success on his hands. BurGR recently opened at Planet Hollywood, and the joint’s been pleasing palates ever since with a flavorful selection of burgers, dogs, salads and signature cocktails. (If you thought we’d leave out the cocktails, you’ve clearly never visited this blog before…..
Four F-16 fighter jets from the world-famous U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds buzzed The Las Vegas Strip on Jan. 7, 2012. The jets made two passes (not uncommon in Vegas, come to think of it), flying in a northeasterly direction at an approximate velocity of “If You Blinked, You Probably Missed It.” The Thunderbirds made the….
It was bound to happen. On Jan. 3, 2012, Planet Hollywood, America’s de facto beauty pageant headquarters, welcomed 53 Miss America contestants at a special rose ceremony, and according to our estimates, virtually all of them immediately got a crush on this blog. For a larger version of that group shot, and to confirm we….
We’ll say it right up front. We’ve never gotten “Auld Lang Syne.” Translated, it means “Old Long Since,” which doesn’t exactly make us scream, “It’s a new year, let’s party!” We do, however, want to remember our Las Vegas acquaintances, old and new, so we’ve slapped together some images we captured from the New Year’s….
New Year’s Eve is the biggest party of the year in Las Vegas, and if you’re lucky enough to be in town for the world-class festivities, brace yourself for a one-of-a-kind, you-probably-won’t-remember-much-of-it (in a good way) celebration. Of course, one of the challenges of a New Year’s Eve in Sin City is figuring out where….
We were delighted, but not surprised, to hear Miss USA Olivia Culpo captured the Miss Universe crown at Planet Hollywood on Dec. 19, 2012. Mainly because this blog predicted the contest’s outcome way back in June. See our incredible exhibition of prescience for yourself! Culpo beat out 88 competitors, several of whom we photographed at….
Who says Las Vegas isn’t a champion of culture? The Saxe Theater in the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood has announced it will open “Stripped The Play,” direct from Off-Broadway, on Dec. 21, 2012. “Stripped The Play,” which feels like it needs some additional punctuation somewhere, delves into the world of male stripping, following….
It’s sort of the Vegas version of “Punk’d.” You arrive at Planet Hollywood, and the hotel staff is apologetic because they can’t find your reservation. The rest is an “Only in Vegas” moment, courtesy of dozens of Miss Universe contestants. Have a watch. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4P1eF41JS1U] The unsuspecting guests, several of whom seem to go into a….
He had us at “Devonshire butter-infused beef.” Colorful celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay is working with Planet Hollywood to open a new restaurant, BurGR Gordon Ramsay, on December 22, 2012. Yes, that soon. We’ve got an exclusive first look at the new BurGR Gordon Ramsay, assuming you haven’t seen it somewhere else before this. BurGR, of….
The things this blog endures for you. Planet Hollywood recently welcomed the genetically-gifted contestants in this year’s Miss Universe competition, and this blog was there to take their photos. While there were any number of lovely contestants in attendance, this blog is going to go boldly out on a limp to predict Miss USA, Olivia Culpo,….
