It's that time a year again. Holiday cheer is in the air and, of course, decorations are beginning to pop up all over The Strip. We took a quick stroll through the Palace of Caesar to take in the sights this Christmas season.
The main lobby is, without question, the most decorated area of the whole property. And, if you're dying for a picture in front of the tree, you'll find them just off the entrance.
During its hiatus, signs around the fountain proclaimed big things:
Atlantis will return soon with: a new look at the legend, a new story to tell, a new take on the characters, a new style of costumes, a new barrage of special effects, a new multi-screen experience, a new thrill for everyone!
Now that we've seen the new show, let's break it down.
A new look at the legend, a new story to tell, a new take on the characters: Yeah, no. It's the exact same story, told with the exact same arc, and has the exact same climax. If we were actually able to hear what was being said, we could confirm that the script is the same, but we weren't, nor will you be, that lucky. The audio is still incredibly difficult to make out in the crowded dome the fountain sits under.

During its original ten year run, the swashbuckling performance served as one of the greatest examples of the city’s family friendly era. Its more recent rendition, full of scantily-clad women and poorly crafted jokes, could be viewed cynically as a representation of the party pits and 6:5 blackjack payouts that many Strip casinos are now known for. With one of Vegas’ most iconic attractions no longer in action, we thought it an appropriate time to check up on the remaining free Las Vegas Strip shows.

While many look for the lowest rate when choosing a Vegas accommodation, others splurge to ensure a suite getaway. But, if you've never been able to enjoy a high-end accommodation, or just wanted to funnel your Vegas vacation funds to other parts of your stay, you'll soon have a chance to make this one suite holiday season.
Junior Achievement of Southern Nevada will give you access to five of Las Vegas' swankiest suites for just $100. Now, now, don't get too excited. We said access, not the keys! Still, if you want to see how over-the-top accommodations can get in Vegas, there's really no better way as Junior Achievement also provides complimentary shuttle service to each hotel as well as in-suite tastings and beverages at every stop along the way.

Ah, Black Friday. It's the ultimate display of consumerism in America. You know, the time of year when people trample each other to save a few bucks. But, we sure do love a deal, especially in a town like Vegas where they are so few and far between (unless you consider $8 beers a bargain, of course).
For all you savvy shoppers out there, here's what Sin City has in store for you as you digest your Thanksgiving turkey:
Las Vegas Premium Outlets (North or South): Oh wait... did we say the day after Thanksgiving? We meant on Thanksgiving. Those looking for a good excuse to get out of dish duty can hit the outlets and take advantage of the fact that stores will be open not only on Thanksgiving Day, but straight through to Friday (and, if they close at all Thursday night, they will reopen at midnight and stay open until 10 p.m. Friday night).
Shoppers can sign up for the Free VIP Shopper Club to get access to online coupons and a VIP coupon book. A Gift With MasterCard Purchase After-Thanksgiving Promotion will also give shoppers who make a single-day purchase of $500 or more with their MasterCard credit or debit card on Saturday (Nov 30th) or Sunday (Dec 1st) a $50 MasterCard Gift Card. (ps, this will not be us.)

As part of the launch of Vegas(scaffolding)Chatter (okay, not really), this writer decided to take a stroll through one of Vegas' biggest properties, Caesars Palace, to bring you updates on all that's happening.
I started at the Forum Shops. The Fall of Atlantis fountain show appears just about ready to rise again. The barricades are down, new statues are in place, and the screens surrounding the area are on. Now we're just waiting for water.
Total Rewards' Great Gift Wrap Up takes place at Flamingo November 7-11 and at Caesars Palace December 4-8. In addition to Total Rewards tier credits and reward credits you normally get from play at Caesars Entertainment casinos, you also qualify for “Gift Points.” Each Reward Credit you earn through Total Rewards during the year (until December 8) is equal to 5 Gift Points. Gift Points are earned in addition to the reward credits you earn. They're just a bonus thank you from Caesars for your loyalty as a customer. This is the eighth year of the Great Gift Wrap Up so people obviously enjoy it.

P.J. Clarke's is now P.J. closed in the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace. Out of (seemingly) nowhere last week, the restaurant chain with locations in New York, D.C., and Sao Paulo closed its doors for good here in Vegas.
The outside "patio" area is now gone and the window displays have vanished. The name above the door is all that remains of the seafood and burger bar.
The Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace has been hard at work on its suite style since opening last March, but now partners Robert De Niro and Chef Nobu Matsuhisa have another suite something in the works -- a 10,300-square-foot Nobu Villa, expected to open early next year.

The past few days have been chaos for Caesars Entertainment. First, Caesars was asked to withdraw their Massachusetts casino project. Then, they dropped Gansevoort as a partner because of possible ties to the Russian mob. Then, there was a shooting at Bally’s this morning. And, now there are reports about money laundering allegations at Caesars Palace.
This all happened between Saturday and 7 a.m. today. WHEW!
Caesars Palace here in Vegas is, without a doubt, waaaaay more exciting than Caesars in Atlantic City. Caesars Palace Vegas has newer rooms and a better casino floor as well as better restaurants, a killer pool scene, the Nobu Hotel, the massive Pure nightclub, the Forum shops and the Colosseum. But, what the Caesars Palace here doesn't have is gladiator fighting.
We saw these hunky
guidos gladiators "fighting" each other at Caesars Atlantic City over the summer. Nice shoes!
Alas, the battles are already finished as it was just a special thing for summer. But, we're surprised gladiator duels haven't made it over to "the real Caesar's palace." We bet some Chippendales would be willing to take a few shifts.
