La Gloria Fills Out The Forum Food Court at Caesars

Where: 3570 Las Vegas Blvd. South [map], 89109
July 1, 2015 at 2:00 PM | by | Comments (4)

The straw is usually coated too but we wanted to ease into the spice, just in case!

The Forum Food Court at Caesars Palace is complete. Well, as complete as anything can be in the dynamic restaurant landscape of Las Vegas. The eighth and final spot is filled as Mexican restaurant La Gloria celebrated its grand opening last week. The taco stand with cocktails features the “street foods of Mexico” (that’s its tagline) and has rounded out the food court’s offerings.

As a fan of several of the previous food court’s tenants (mainly the decent yet expectedly overpriced pizza and an above par BBQ joint), I’m fairly pleased with the transition. Sometimes you are looking for a quick bite and now there’s a good mix of regional favorites from other parts of the country like Graeter’s Ice Cream, well known in Cincinnati, and Brooklyn’s Di Fara Pizza, plus ever-expanding chains like Earl of Sandwich and Smashburger.

Pitbull Got 'Blessed'...with a Mini-Residency at Planet Hollywood

June 23, 2015 at 1:35 PM | by | Comments (0)

Pitbull, the man behind several catchy jams that you didn't want to like but can't get out of your head, has scored his own mini-residency here in Las Vegas at the Axis Theater at Planet Hollywood.

Dubbed the "Time of Our Lives" show, the seven-night limited engagement will take place from September 23-October 7. (Our headline is a take on the lyrics of his "Time of Our Lives" song.) Tickets go on sale for the shows this Friday, June 26 at noon PT. The exact dates of the shows are Sept. 23, 25, 26, 30 and Oct. 2, 3, and 7, and all shows start at 9pm. Ticket prices start at $39 and go up to $169, plus fees. You can buy tix online at TicketMaster.com or in-person at The AXIS box office at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.

If you're a Total Rewards member, there will be a presale happening from June 24 at 10am to June 25 at 10pm. No word on whether Pitbull's frequent collaborator Ne-Yo will perform but you gotta think he will make a surprise appearance at least one night.

A First Look at Vista at Caesars Palace

June 12, 2015 at 11:29 AM | by | Comments (9)

There’s a new view in town. Well, sort of. Vista cocktail lounge at Caesars Palace offers panoramic views of “the world’s most breathtaking skylines” (according to its website). In real life, the rotating photos of famous skylines on the back wall look nice but breathtaking might be a stretch. Perhaps after a few cocktails.

The venue is right off the slot floor nearest the food court and parking garage, across from the Colosseum entrance. It would make a great spot to grab a drink before or after a show. It’s rather dark but the booth and table set ups are nice and intimate with chairs and couches facing each other in the middle, making little private spaces. (It used to be the Shadows Lounge, FYI.)

You Can Now Throw Your Own Pool Party on The Vegas Strip

June 5, 2015 at 2:07 PM | by | Comments (4)

Are you sick and tired of dealing with randoms having sex next to you at all the pool parties currently in session in Las Vegas? Do you ever wish for a pool party for just you and your ladies and homies to attend ? Well, if you've got about $7,000, you can do it.

Caesars Palace has opened up their Bacchus and the Jupiter pools for Vegas-goers to rent. Each pool area holds up to 120 people and plenty of space for your party people to spread out amongst eight daybeds, eight cabanas, and up to 80 lounge chairs.

But of course, a pool party isn’t too much fun if everyone is just standing around so you can add on a food and drink package and also hire a DJ to play some sweet jams. The pool is available to anyone from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. but after-hours parties can be approved by pool management with additional labor costs.

The cost to rent a pool starts at $6,500 plus a 4% service charge. Food and beverage and DJ packages are separate and will cost more.

Besides being a total baller rental for you and your bros, the pool areas would make an excellent venue for a corporate meeting and/or cocktail party. For more information on reserving a pool you can call Total Experiences locally at 702-731-7238 or 1-855-855-9205.

It's Time To Get Gossy Once Again

June 2, 2015 at 11:30 AM | by | Comments (3)

British crooner Matt Goss is coming back for another round in The Gossy Room at Caesars Palace. He’s been performing off and on since 2010 and on June 23, the run continues. The former Bros singer has been hailed as the second coming of Sinatra. This time around, he’s got some competition from Michael Monge at Eastside Lounge at Encore and Bob Anderson in Frank: The Man, The Music at Venetian, both of whom have Sinatra acts.

Goss has an ace in the hole this time in well-known entertainment manager and producer Bernie Yuman, who has repped Muhammad Ali and Siegfried & Roy. Perhaps he can keep the momentum going for the Vegas veteran. His nine-piece band and backup dancers should help.

Expect a mix of covers, his own tracks and of course a healthy dose of Sinatra classics. His new residency will run Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $50 for GA, $80 for Gold Circle and $120 for VIP which includes a meet and greet with New Blue Eyes.

Also coming to Caesars Palace is the Reba, Brooks & Dunn show beginning on June 17. The mini-residency runs through July 4 and picks back up again in December when all the cowboys come to town again. [Thanks @Flinthaven for the tip!]

Mariah Carey is Vegas' New 'Sweetheart' With Her Glitzy Debut at Caesars Palace

Where: 3570 S. Las Vegas Blvd [map], 89109
May 7, 2015 at 4:29 PM | by | Comments (7)

Miss Mariah Carey kicked off what will be a two-year residency (over 50 shows) last night at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace. Mariah #1 to Infinity includes all 18 of Carey’s number one hit singles in chronological order from 1990 to 2008, beginning with Vision of Love. She also debuted a new song Infinity, which she sang live for the first time.

Carey had six costume changes and one hair change during the almost two-hour performance. On-stage entrances included a pink 1950’s style car car for Dreamlover, and a jet ski for Honey (because, of course.) We didn’t attend the show last night (we will at a later date) but we do have spies all over town who attended. Word is she interacted with audience, made fun of herself, walked through the crowd, brought an audience member on stage, and was humble throughout the whole show.

Poker Player Profile: Tim 'The Trooper' Watts

May 1, 2015 at 3:10 PM | by | Comments (8)

What is it like to be a professional poker player in Las Vegas? What it is like to make your living on the felt, doing battle with tourists and locals alike, fighting and clawing for fiercely contested chips in pot after pot, suffering through the bad beats, basking in the glow of making your opponents fold their superior hands, raking in the spoils of your victories, shrugging off the hands that got away, then racking up your soldiers and doing it all again the next day?

Tim "The Trooper" Watts (the nickname is a reference to one of his favorite Iron Maiden songs) knows exactly what it's like.

Since moving to Las Vegas from Jacksonville, Florida last June, Watts has been living the life that many poker players from all over the world have only fantasized about. It is in the poker rooms up and down the Strip where Watts goes about the business of grinding out his living by playing a card game.

Although he did line-up a part time job at a restaurant when he first came to town, Watts recently took a leap of faith and said goodbye to the day job so that he could concentrate fully on poker.

Now with no bosses to answer to and no schedules to follow, each day is an open book. Whether his office is Caesars Palace, the Venetian, or perhaps downtown at the Golden Nugget, Watts enters each day in full control of his own destiny.

Shania cantered up by horse. Olivia Newton-John pulled up in a 1940s Ford Mercury Cadillac convertible from Grease. Now, another iconic singer has made a splashy Vegas debut for her residency.

Last night, Mariah Carey arrived at Caesars Palace one week ahead of her limited-engagement run in a pink (of course) 1936 Auburn Boattail (value: $131,500) to a sea of screaming fans.
