New Orleans, Louisiana

Ready to Rock: Legendary Fillmore is coming to Harrah’s New Orleans

The summer of 1968 saw a small music joint called Fillmore West open in San Francisco. In its infancy, the bandbox helped launch the careers of The Doors, Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, and others.
Since then, performers have packed Fillmore music halls in seven cities. Next up is Harrah’s New Orleans.
The Fillmore there will open February 15-16, 2019 with the Foo Fighters. Wrought iron gates, clapboard sidings and gas street lamps will give the 2,000-capacity venue a distinct Big Easy feel. Naturally, snacks include popcorn Creole shrimp and Louisiana hot chicken tenders. “In a city where live music abounds from street corners to the stage, The Fillmore is a perfect addition,” says Regional President Dan Real.

Baltimore, Maryland

Fore!

Golfers will soon be teeing up at Topgolf in Baltimore. Tucked between the Baltimore Orioles and Ravens stadiums, Topgolf will let novices and PGA-wannabees test their skills. With micro-chipped balls instantly scoring themselves, players are free to explore the food menu and enjoy the climate-controlled hitting bays. A joint venture with the Horseshoe Casino Baltimore, Topgolf will open in 2020. “We had a vision to be more than a casino,” explains Erin Chamberlin, Caesars Entertainment’s regional president and general manager. “This is the city’s next entertainment district.”
