There's a lot of sh*t that happens in Vegas and not all of it can make it on our site as a full report. So, every Friday, we take note of some of the smaller announcements around town that may be of interest, too. Here's the rundown for the week of February 23:
Route 91 Tickets On Sale Soon: Country lovers, mark your calendars. The Route 91 concert series will return to the MGM Resorts Village (the
parking events lot across from Luxor) October 2-4 and tickets go on sale March 13. For its second Vegas stop, the three-day, two-stage event will feature Florida Georgia Line, Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Jake Owen and more. Purchase tickets online. Make sure you check out the upgraded VIP options (now with shade and better restrooms!) before you buy.

The Cosmopolitan plans to take the New Year very literally. With new owners (Blackstone Group) and a new leader (Bill McBeath) installed, the center Strip resort will continue to bring the new.

Is Flamingo launching an intensive top-to-bottom overhaul which will bring more room updates? Or, is what's happening around the center Strip hotel-casino meant to update, but not overdo? The big picture over at Flamingo is still unknown, but one thing's certain -- this dirty bird is molting.
Yesterday, the resort's Tropical Breeze Cafe marked its last day of service while the Paradise Garden Buffet scaled back hours last month to just 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Now, VegasChatter fan Jeff C. brings us our latest report on Flamingo, complete with images captured this past weekend.

Renderings reveal the casino bar's current look, featuring ornate ironwork and a huge column-supported dome (shown above), will give way to a modern Parisian design (spitballin' here on potential press release copy) boasting unrestricted views of the action surrounding it, comfortable bar and lounge seating, playfully oversized lamps, and the eye-catching whimsy of twinkling chandeliers that will seem to float in midair. (Feel free to use any of that, Caesars.)

It may not look like much (read: it doesn't look like much), but a new watering hole has launched at McCarran Airport.
The Layover Bar opened on New Year's Eve and is located on the esplanade of Terminal 1. Look for it on the second level before travelers pass through security. An airport official tells us the lounge specializes in Bloody Marys and margs "with a modern twist." It's open daily from 8 a.m. until 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and until midnight on Friday and Saturday.

It's time for the fifth annual VegasChatter Awards! Today, we begin bringing you the best and worst of the year. All of our picks are based on what we've personally experienced in Vegas over 2014 -- the good, the bad and the mind-boggling.
The Las Vegas Strip got a handful of new watering holes in 2014 and several really distinguished themselves with creative craft cocktails or a fun ambiance, sometimes both. In a world where “handcrafted” and “artisanal” are getting trite and often misused, it’s nice to find a few spots doing it right.

There's another spot to enjoy all-you-can-drink bubbly on December 31st. Just not for $40.
FIZZ at Caesars Palace is offering a three-hour premium open bar package for $125 a person (tax included but a $16 service charge is not). The price includes a champagne toast at midnight and hors d'oeuvres. Table packages begin at $500 for a party of four. Guests can start raising their glass (after glass, after glass) beginning at 9 p.m.

Though the Show in the Sky is no longer happening at Rio, several venues show the property is still alive and well
in some areas. On a recent weekend visit, we enjoyed live entertainment at the stage near the former Show in the Sky area. A six-piece band performed for a sizeable crowd.
Another crowded spot in the casino was the recently renovated iBar. While the entire casino recently got new carpet, iBar got some additional upgrades. New bench-style seating around the perimeter has given the bar a much more loungy feel, making it a great spot to sit and sip while people watching from the center of the casino floor.
