Aliante Station To Be Just Aliante

Where: 7300 North Aliante Parkway [map], 89084
October 30, 2012 at 3:49 PM | by | ()

We've always called it Aliante, anyway, but starting November 1 it will be official. That's when Aliante Station will be officially cut from the Station Casinos family.

The off, off Strip property got its Boarding Pass in 2008 when it opened in North Las Vegas but, last November, Aliante Gaming became its new owners. Station Casinos has still been running the joint, though. But, starting Thursday, Aliante Gaming will take off the training wheels and take over completely.

The Fourth On A Wednesday Means Strip Fireworks On The 7th

June 18, 2012 at 1:22 PM | by | ()

If you want to be in Vegas for the Fourth just make sure you arrive on the 6th or the 7th. Say what, you say?

Well, with the Fourth of July falling on a Wednesday this year, Caesars Palace is choosing to celebrate the nation's independence on Saturday, July 7 instead. Gather around Caesars between 8:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. in order to get a good viewing spot for the 9:15 p.m. launch. Caesars says the best views will be from in front of the property by the fountains. Although, by the Las Vegas Sun photo shown at top, being on a pedestrian bridge isn't too bad of a vantage point, either.

If you're a traditionalist, though (and don't mind venturing off The Strip), Station Casinos -- the owner of locals' resorts in suburbs throughout Las Vegas -- will set off fireworks at five of their properties on the Fourth. Head to Aliante Station, Green Valley Ranch, Fiesta Rancho, Texas Station, or Red Rock Resort for a 9 p.m. Fourth of July display that's actually on July 4.

Red, White And Fill-In-The-Blank, Fourth Parties Are Almost Here

June 21, 2011 at 4:00 PM | by | ()

If you're not working on saving up for an epic hangover, Caesars Palace wants to kick off your Fourth of July holiday weekend with a bang. The resort will launch a bang-up fireworks display from its rooftop at 9:15 p.m. on July 3. We're not really sure why July 3 and not July 4, but as long as we can ooh and ahh while we sip oversized novelty drinks, it's all good.

If you're more of a traditionalist, you can catch Fourth of July fireworks on the Fourth of July at five Station Casinos hotels around town. Just be at Aliante Station, Green Valley Ranch, Fiesta Rancho, Texas Station or Red Rock at 9 p.m. that night to take in the show.

Here are some other ways to have a blast in Vegas this Fourth:

McFadden's at Rio
Red, White and Booze party on July 2
Happy 2 Hours from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. will get you all-you-can-drink for $15
Also expect $2 red, white and blue Jell-O shots & a chugging contest 'cause there's nothing more patriotic than slamming a brewsky

4 Places To Stay For Electric Daisy For $90 Or Less

April 11, 2011 at 5:45 PM | by | ()

Combine the world's largest rave electronic music fest with Vegas and what do you get? We're about to find out.

Last week, execs behind Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) made their decision to move from LA to LV a reality by announcing that the Las Vegas Motor Speedway would serve as this year's host venue.

2011 will also see a third day added to the event, but won't see a set by Kaskade who took to Facebook Friday to tell fans that he wasn't going to be a part of the Las Vegas extravaganza. Kaskade didn't say why, but some are speculating that his contracts with Marquee at The Cosmopolitan may not have allowed him to participate.

And, while EDC isn't saying yet just who will be performing, that's not stopping some media outlets from going out there with what they suspect.

Who Needs 'Last Comic Standing,' When Vegas 'High Rollers' Will Give You A Chance?

February 10, 2011 at 3:27 PM | by | ()

They may not be able to get you on TV, but these Vegas comedians are able to give you something just as exciting - a chance.

Aliante Station, known more as a locals' hotel since its about a 30-minute drive from The Strip, is the new home of The High Rollers Comedy Club starring Mike Stigs, Keith Lyle, John Barnes and Jim Germano (shown above, back to front, left to right). A new comedy show at a Vegas hotel isn't really that big of a deal, but what they're offering to fledging comics is.

At the end of each show, the High Rollers turn the mic over to anyone that wants to take it and yuk it up, too. Give your best set and you could get on the payroll. Seriously. Barnes says they're already "pulling the paid talent from the open mic comics" and that "some of them are getting paid for the first time."
