Five Useful Vegas Valet Hacks

December 19, 2014 at 4:18 PM | by | Comments (2)

Not all Vegas hotel porte cocheres are created equally. Sometimes, you can leave your car with valet, grab your bags and quickly get where you need to go. Sometimes valet is on the opposite side of the property and entirely inconvenient for your visit. It's not fun†lugging yourself through the casino until you get to whichever part of the property you want to be in. Here are some valet tips for visitors who prefer to drive themselves, but don't know Vegas quite as well as they'd like to yet:

There's another spot to enjoy all-you-can-drink bubbly on December 31st. Just not for $40.

The Strip To Be Gifted With Smashburger This Month

Where: 3570 Las Vegas Blvd. South [map], 89109
December 10, 2014 at 8:24 PM | by | Comments (5)

Perhaps Smashburger can get a Hulk busker to help promote the opening of its new store at Caesars Palace. A Hulk Smashburger sounds like a natural menu item for the ever-expanding burger chain. They usually have a "celebrity smasher" for their openings and a busker would definitely fit in on The Strip. Smashburger will set up shop in the new food court at Caesars, its ninth Vegas location and first on the Strip.

If you havenít had Smashburger yet, youíre missing out. No itís not quite on the level of Burger Bar at Mandalay Bay or the sorely missed LBS at Red Rock, but itís about half the price and really quite tasty. Donít lump it in with other fast food burger joints because itís far better, at least in this burger loverís opinion.

Melody Sweets Knows How To Keep Ol' St. Nick Extra Jolly

We donít need much goading to get excited about a Melody Sweets project. When it has reasonably priced tickets and a charity component, well, thatís pretty much a slam dunk in our books. The sultry singer who performs as the Green Fairy in Absinthe will strip down to something thatís sure to be festive at her XXXMas: A Burlesque Christmas Spectacular.

The naughty holiday show set for December 23 will feature eccentric performer Johnny Fayva as St. Prick (no, not a mistake) and will include some of Melodyís co-stars from Absinthe as well as the dearly departed Vegas Nocturne. The 18+ show is slated to feature insanely talented tappers The Scott Brothers, bubble girl Charlie Starling, aerialists Ming & Alexa (all from Absinthe) plus Vegas Nocturne contortionist Candy Charlotte and Aya Fontaine and Buttecup Delight from Holly Madisonís 1923 Bourbon & Burlesque.

Why We're Not Digging The Renovated Sportsbook At Caesars Palace

Where: 89109
December 3, 2014 at 6:55 PM | by | Comments (10)

Caesars Palace†is the latest to squeeze the regular guy out of sportsbook. The resort's recently(ish) renovated sportsbook is less of a remodel than it is gentrification. By that we mean, the sportsbook added a bar to make the tired old space look new.

If you remember the glory days of the Caesars Palace sportsbook, you probably recall the giant space with lots of seats where anyone could watch the games. Fast forward to 2014 and that space has been enhanced†(read: drastically reduced). The sportsbook is now blocked off by a bar and the actual sportsbook TV screens haven't been replaced. The majority of seats inside the sportsbook are reserved for Diamond and Seven Stars Total Rewards members or people spending large sums of money on booze. This makes Caesars' sportsbook accessible to about 5% of Total Rewards members.

How Sushi Roku Could Rock Your Next Meal

This VegasChatter writer spent way too much of her life not liking asparagus. Iíve been making up for lost time and finding interesting preparations in local restaurants. One of my current faves is the Filet Mignon-Wrapped Asparagus with soy mirin sauce ($18, above) at Sushi Roku in the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace. The perfectly cooked asparagus is wrapped in insanely tender, thinly-sliced filet and served on a hot stone to keep it nice and toasty. The server pours the thick and savory soy mirin sauce when it is delivered to create a fragrant sizzle. Sushi Roku definitely won extra points for presentation!

The restaurant is celebrating its 10th anniversary with an ďUltimate Top 10Ē menu for a limited time. Select menu items like the asparagus appetizer and other top sellers like Yellowtail Diced Chilies with olive oil and garlic ponzu, the Katana Roll with spicy tuna and shrimp tempura topped with tuna and yellowtail and Chilean Sea Bass with Truffle Miso Glaze are only $10.

With high temps in the 70s, things are not even close to beginning to look or feel like Christmas in Vegas. Since snow on the Strip is rare (but, yes, it has happened just check out the photo below from 2008), we usually make our own joy in our own small, over-the-top way.
