Fans Bid Farewell at O’Sheas Casino Closing

It was loud. It was liquored up. It was a little bit sad. Kind of like O’Sheas casino itself, come to think of it. At noon on April 30, 2012, O’Sheas casino on the Las Vegas Strip closed its doors, and boisterous fans showed up in droves to knock back one last shot, to place….

O’Sheas “Final Countdown” and The Linq News

The hours until the closing of O’Sheas may be growing fewer (the beloved casino closes at noon on April 30, 2012), but if you move quickly, even if O’Sheas is gone, it won’t be forgotten. We just learned O’Sheas has issued limited-edition (just 3,000 were produced) gaming chips commemorating the end of an era on….

Drink & Drag Vegas is Dressed Up and Ready to Party

Although Drink & Drag Las Vegas, billed as the “first-ever fully drag queen-staffed bar,” won’t officially open until May 5, 2012, the downtown establishment quietly began to welcome guests this weekend, and we were there. Unfortunately, because it was just a “soft launch,” we were told we weren’t allowed to take photos. So, naturally, we….

Is There Anything Jaymes Vaughan Can’t Do?

His name is Jaymes Vaughan. He’s in the Chippendales male revue at Rio Las Vegas. But that’s kind of just the beginning. You see, Jaymes Vaughan does it all. He’s the ultimate Renaissance Man, like Galileo Galilei, but shirtless. Vaughan not only dances in Chippendales, he’s also the featured singer, and also does his thing….

Karaoke Club at IP Closes: We’re Totally Bummed

What awful news. Because this blog loves karaoke. Totally. We’re pretty much despondent having to report that the Karaoke Club inside the Imperial Palace has closed. We can hardly contain our sadness. Because we love karaoke so darned much. We understand the poker room will be moving into the space formerly occupied by the Karaoke….

Today’s Thing You Didn’t Know About Las Vegas

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….

Today’s Featured Dealertainer: Sir Jac as Prince

We’re not sure “Sir Jac” would “Die 4 U,” but this talented “dealertainer” would definitely dance parts of himself off to entertain “U” and your fellow guests at Imperial Palace. We love that Sir Jac (possibly not his birth name) never seems to stop dancing, even when he’s dealing blackjack. Here’s a little peek at….

There was the bittersweet reality this would perhaps be the last O’Sheas block party. There were the shamrock tattoos. And there was the debauchery. Yes, there was lots….

Today’s Las Vegas Celebrity Encounter (Kinda)

You never know who you’ll bump into when you’re in Las Vegas. As we strolled the Strip the other night, we spotted a TV crew tailing two Metro officers we can only assume were in the process of taping an episode of truTV’s “Vegas Strip.” The officers and their crew were all business as they….
