At Aria, American Fish Out, Michael Mina Still In

April 3, 2014 at 8:42 PM | by | Comments (4)

This writer had a great dinner once at American Fish inside Aria. But, when there's so much choice and your location is off the beaten track (not just set off from The Strip, but located within a resort you never really have cause to visit), it's hard to find the motivation to return. And, I never did.

Now comes word that American Fish, created by chef Michael Mina, will close its doors in July to make way for another Mina concept. It's news that I reacted to with a shrug. Even knowing I have a bit of time to return once more, I know that I won't. My meal was good, but nowhere close to crave-worthy. Your guess is as good as mine as to the reason behind the closure. Maybe it was just time for something new. Maybe it was past time for something new.

One Less Pink's In Vegas

Where: 11011 W Charleston Blvd [map], 89135
March 24, 2014 at 7:34 PM | by | Comments (2)

Red Rock Resort is down not two, but three dining spots.

Although we just heard about it this weekend, a rep for Red Rock tells us that Pink's closed the same day as its sister restaurant, LBS, at the off Strip property. That was almost two months ago now.

While we meet most Strip dining closures with a shrug, this news is met with a sigh. The tastiest sandwich joint on Las Vegas Boulevard is no more.

At Binion's, Elvis Will Soon Leave The Building

Where: 128 Fremont St. [map], 89101
March 10, 2014 at 9:39 PM | by | Comments (5)

Elvis fans need to head over to Binion’s soon to view some of the entertainer's prized possessions before they leave town. Vital Vegas and Las Vegas Advisor have discovered that the King is about to leave the building.

We all have that friend who claims to have a water bottle from Bono or a pen Katy Perry touched. (We all have friends like that, right? No? Just us?) In fact, this writer is in possession of an earplug from Benji Madden of Good Charlotte. I know, kind of gross, but what’s a diehard fan to do? And, when it comes to diehard fans, Elvis’ are among the most loyal.

Red Rock Working on Dishing Up New Dining

Where: 11011 W Charleston Blvd [map], 89135
March 7, 2014 at 9:31 PM | by | Comments (5)

Time for another VegasChatter Question! This one comes from Edward R. who wanted to know what was up at Red Rock after two recent restaurant closures. He also wondered where he could find good sushi now in that neck of the woods. Do you have a question about Vegas, too? We bet you do. Send it to us and you just might see it here on VegasChatter!

Summerlin residents and other visitors to Red Rock Casino are lamenting the loss of two restaurants from the resort’s dining scene. LBS burger joint closed its doors just after the Super Bowl, taking with it the only dry-aged burgers in town. Then last week another domino fell as Hachi, loved for its happy hour specials, closed as well.

Call A Buddy: Pawn Shop Live Is Picking Up, Erm, Shop

It aimed low and still missed the mark for us, but the Riviera apparently thinks there's a profit margin to explore.

After officially opening at the Golden Nugget on January 21, Pawn Shop Live! -- the Pawn Stars parody -- is already moving. Beginning April 21, the show will call the Riviera home with performers taking to the stage daily at 4:30 p.m. inside the Starlite Theatre (where illusionist Jan Rouven performs at night).

After tonight, there will be one less entertainment option on Fremont Street. Raack N Roll will mark its final performance at the D this evening.

VegasChatter Twitter friend and Raack N Roll fan @George Addams brought us news of the impeding closure on Sunday. We were able to confirm yesterday that the topless production's one-year run was coming to an end tonight.

Dark Days For Phat Pack

February 6, 2014 at 3:43 PM | by | Comment (1)

Critic fave Phat Pack have found themselves without a home.

The show, put on by three former Phantom of the Opera castmates from when it headlined the Venetian, debuted at downtown's Plaza back in late 2012. It spent about a year there before a new window of opportunity opened at Bally's in December of last year. The group took to Facebook on February 1, however, to let fans know their time there had already come to an end:
