It’s an annual tradition. Readers of the Las Vegas Review-Journal vote on their favorite things in Sin City. The results for 2013 are here.
The “Best of Las Vegas” poll runs the gamut of Las Vegas offerings, from shows to restaurants, hotels, shopping and more. There’s no “Best Las Vegas Blog” category, but do we really even need to vote on that one? Ahem.
The list of winners is too long to share here, so we’ll just mention a few from the Caesars Entertainment realm (whose blog this is).
Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace was the Review-Journal’s pick for “Best Buffet (Hotel),” and Caesars Palace also won the coveted editor’s choice for “Best Strip Hotel.”
Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris Las Vegas was chosen by the editors as the city’s best steakhouse, no small feat in a town full of great ones!
The reader’s pick for “Best Singer” on The Strip went to Donny Osmond at Flamingo Las Vegas. The editors chose Cheaza, in “Peepshow,” at Planet Hollywood.
The runaway favorite in the “Best Bargain Show” category, Mac King at Harrah’s, prevailed again this year. It’s his 416th win in a row, roughly.
VooDoo Lounge at Rio was named by the RJ’s editors as the “Best Place to View the City.” No brainer.
The “Bevertainers” (cocktail waitresses who also perform onstage) at Rio got the reader nod as the best in Las Vegas.
The Rio’s Penn & Teller prevailed as the best magicians in Las Vegas, according to the newspaper’s editors.
The hunks of Chippendales, also at Rio Las Vegas, won for “Best Male Strip Show,” both according to readers and the RJ’s editors.
The Chippendales guys also snagged the honor of being the best place for a bachelorette party.
Krave at Rio won for “Best Gay/Alternative Bar,” as well as “Best Place to Dance.”
Best “Showgirls/Dancers in a Show” went to “Jubilee!” at Bally’s Las Vegas. The “Best Adult Show” prize went to “Absinthe” at Caesars Palace.
The editor’s selection for “Best Italian Restaurant” was Trevi, in The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace. Bonus: Trevi also serves some fairly amazing cocktails. We’ve heard. Allegedly.
From the expected to the sort-of-wacky, check out all the results for this year’s Las Vegas Review-Journal Best of Las Vegas poll.
