10 Reasons We’re Excited About Fall in Las Vegas

Last updated: October 4, 2016 at 9:15 am. Posted by in Las Vegas Hotels, Las Vegas Restaurants, Things to Do in Las Vegas. Comments Off on 10 Reasons We’re Excited About Fall in Las Vegas.

Fall is in the air, and Las Vegas no longer feels like it’s located on the surface of the sun. Heck, you might even need to break out a jacket at night. Yes, summer is ending, the pool clubs are closing and you are no longer supposed to wear white, but we’re not complaining. We love the changes that come with autumn. It’s a whole new season full of new things to do in Las Vegas.

Here’s what we’re looking forward to this fall:

Enjoy a glass of wine at GIADA at The Cromwell

GIADA Wine Series Dinners at The Cromwell

Eating at GIADA is pretty great, but throw wine into the mix and it’s even better. The restaurant regularly hosts wine dinners with GIADA’s team of talented sommeliers who guide guests through a wine pairing hosted by a different winemaker. The tasting menu includes GIADA favorites and some unique additions to complement the wine. Guests also get to take home a signed picture and a selection of Giada De Laurentiis’ favorite recipes, including her ah-mazing lemon ricotta cookies.

The wine dinners are $200 per person and run from 6 – 9 p.m. Dinners coming up this fall include:

  • Oct. 4: Jenny Wagner from Emmolo Wines
  • Nov. 7: Cheval de Andes

Chainsmokers at OMNIA Las Vegas Nightclub

Hot DJ duo The Chainsmokers take over OMNIA nightclub on Oct. 4. Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall hit it big in 2014 with their single, “#Selfie.”  You’ve probably also heard their songs “Roses,” “Don’t Let Me Down” and “Closer” featuring Halsey, which is their No. 1 hit that was everywhere this summer.

Grand Opening of Gordon Ramsay's Fish & Chips at The LINQ Promenade

Celeb chef Gordon Ramsay will open his fourth Vegas restaurant on Oct. 7 at The LINQ Promenade. If you’ve ever had Ramsay’s fish & chips, you already know that they are to die for. We can’t wait for this new casual concept.

You’ll also find traditional British fare like bangers and mash, as well as drinks, brews, cocktails and adult milkshakes at the new restaurant.

Craft Beer Specials at the Beer Park Las Vegas

Beer Park Beer & Food Festival at Paris Las Vegas

Fall means it’s time for Oktoberfest, and that means it’s time to drink some beer. Beer Park will help you do just that on Oct. 8 with its beer and food festival. There’ll be more than 30 craft beer vendors, 10 food stations, DJs and live music from Spazmatics and The Dirty with Frankie Perez.

Tickets start at $61.79.

Mylan World TeamTennis Smash Hits at Caesars Palace

Elton John is usually playing the piano, but who knew he also knows how to swing a tennis racket? He and Billie Jean King are hosting this special charity event Oct. 10 at 6:30 p.m.

Top tennis players including John McEnroe, Andy Roddick, Martina Navratilova, Maria Sharapova, Mardy Fish, Liezel Huber and Mark Philippoussis will play singles, doubles and mixed doubles. You get to watch world-class tennis players doing their thing, and as a bonus the proceeds benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation. Elton John is expected to participate in a celebrity doubles match to open the event. Tickets are $59.95 and up.

Show time is 7:30 p.m., and tickets start at $55.

The Bronx Wanderers at Bally’s Las Vegas

If you like music, The Bronx Wanderers cover it all. This father-and-son trio and their band have been playing pop and rock classics around the country for more than 12 years.

They’ve recently opened their new show at Bally’s, which runs nightly at 5:30 p.m. You can expect to hear hits by everyone from Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons to The Beach Boys, Bruno Mars and Queen.

Charismatic front man Vinny is a former chart-topping record producer. He is joined on stage by his two sons – Vinny “The Kid” and drummer Nicky “Stix” – as well as a killer hand-picked backup band.

Tickets are $49.99 and up.

Chocolate Treats on the High Roller Las Vegas

Chocolate Tasting on the High Roller at The LINQ Promenade

You can get married on The High Roller or do yoga on The High Roller. Now, the latest fun way to experience the world’s tallest observation wheel is an in-cabin Chocolate Tasting Experience with Ethel M Chocolates.

As you enjoy the view from 550 feet in the air, you’ll learn about chocolate and how the pieces were created, while focusing your attention on the aroma, taste and texture. The 30-minute (one rotation) adventure includes a chocolatier ambassador showcasing five different types and the story behind them. Tastings are available every Thursday from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., with the final experience beginning at 8 p.m. Standard admission pricing is $52 per person. A private cabin can be purchased for $1,500. Each chocolate tasting cabin can accommodate up to 15 guests.

Fall specials at Harrah’s Spa

If you’re like the rest of us, you probably overdid the sun and the chlorine this summer. The good news is you can use that as an excuse to hit the spa to undo the damage.

The Harrah’s Spa is offering a 50-minute Fall Fresh Beauty Facial for $100. Technicians will perform the service by using the NuFace Trinity PRO. A microcurrent is used to tone facial muscles while improving contour, skin tone and reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.

You can also get a Fall Pedicure for $65. This treatment begins with an aromatic soak followed by a brown sugar, bourbon and rice exfoliation. Next, a bionutrient peat mud infuses the skin with mineral and organic plant compounds that cool and moisten skin. Finish with a botanical oil massage.

BBQ on the Las Vegas Strip

JaBurritos and Virgil’s Real BBQ opening at The LINQ Promenade

Sushi burritos are all the rage in the foodie world these days so we’re pretty happy that JaBurritos will be opening in November at The LINQ Promenade.

A sushi burrito is a combination of the best of the two foods. You’ll be able to choose different sauces, vegetables and proteins (think spicy tuna, salmon or soft shell crab) and wrap them in seaweed paper or a tortilla.

Jaburritos will have also have salads, cooked fish and rice bowls for those who aren’t sushi fans.

We’re also looking forward to the fall opening of Virgil’s Real Barbecue, which will bring the flavors of Tennessee, Kentucky, Texas, the Carolinas and Missouri to The LINQ Promenade.

The menu will feature everything from Memphis pork ribs and chicken to Texas beef brisket, as well as all the sides you love like barbecue beans, coleslaw and cheese grits. Save room for Southern-style desserts, including banana pudding and Key Lime and sweet potato pies.
