That leaves today, August 20, next Tuesday, August 26 and next Wednesday, August 27 as possibly your very last chances to see him.

Excalibur Buffet Closing Soon For Renovations

Where: 89109
August 19, 2014 at 9:21 PM | by | Comments (11)

Its exterior may forever be a castle, but Excalibur's buffet won't remind us of a neglected dungeon much longer. Or, at least, its decor won't.

VegasChatter fan Sharon C. tipped us off to the news of a remodel earlier today. According to Excalibur's Twitter feed, a renovation project will close the overly exuberantly themed space beginning September 2. The property will offer a "special breakfast set-up at The STEAKHOUSE at Camelot in the mean time."

The KOA Campground At Circus Circus Is Closing Soon

August 15, 2014 at 7:47 PM | by | Comments (14)

In 2012, we thought plans for a pool complex at Circus Circus would wipe out its long, long time RV park. That didn't happen, nor did the pool expansion. But, it seems the clock has officially run out for the campground.

Next month, the KOA Circusland RV Park will close to make way for MGM Resort's City of Rock, a sprawling outdoor festival ground that will debut in May 2015 with the US arrival of Rock in Rio. The Los Angeles Times reports that a smaller RV park could eventually return, but you know how that tends to go in Las Vegas:

Get Your Buzz At A Discount, Sugar Factory At Mirage Closing

Where: 3400 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109

At The Mirage, the OG of Sugar Factory stores has been dishing happiness, one pound at at time, since 2009. Since then, the brand really got stuck on Vegas with locations popping up at Paris, Planet Hollywood, MGM Grand and Town Square over the years.

Elvis Is Back At Four Queens, But This Time We Have Cause For Excitement

Where: 202 Fremont Street [map], 89101
August 5, 2014 at 9:59 PM | by | Comments (2)

The lineup is changing once more inside the Four Queens showroom. The Elvis/Sinatra mashup we told you about that never actually happened? It's now going to happen. Minus Sinatra. Confused? We were, too, so we got to the bottom of the matter. Follow the bouncing Elvis and try to keep up.

Remember Thatís Life? The little slice of vintage Vegas (insert sarcasm) that had to be seen to be believed? We certainly do and shared our thoughts here. What was meant to be a collaboration between respected Elvis impersonator Steve Connolly and Dakota Horvath (as Sinatra) never actually came together (for reasons unknown) and Horvath resorted to sharing the stage with an unbearable performer this writer dubbed Street Elvis.

Three Questions For Michael Mina On BARDOT

Where: 3730 Las Vegas Blvd. [map], 89109
July 31, 2014 at 7:42 PM | by | Comment (1)

After the announcement that BARDOT Brasserie would be taking the spot of American Fish at Aria, many questions surrounded the motivations behind changing Michael Mina's American gastro-pub concept into a French Brasserie. Even more questions swirled around how it would define itself from others and be a unique concept.

We at VegasChatter were lucky enough to wrangle the celebrity chef for a spare moment to straighten a few things out, and to illuminate the dark corners surrounding this much-anticipated opening.

With Krave's Departure Comes Equalibrium

Where: 3765 Las Vegas Blvd. S. [map], 89109
July 29, 2014 at 6:50 PM | by | Comments (0)

Krave may be gone (again) but that, apparently, doesn't mean Vegas will have one less LGBT nightclub. Or, that the Tommy Wind Theater will... which Krave just vacated.

In a twist that should probably require an accompanying flowchart, Krave has been replaced by Equalibrium. The also gay friendly nightspot will make its debut this Friday, August 1 in the exact same space Krave called home up until this past weekend (for its most recent incarnation, anyway). That, however, is where the similarities end as Equalibrium is quick to note on its Facebook page.

Zinger's Shutters At Hawaiian Marketplace

Where: 3743 Las Vegas Blvd S [map], 89109

The best worst dive bar on The Strip is no more.

Zinger's, known for its karaoke and definitely not for its food, has closed at Hawaiian Marketplace. That's the strip mall across from Aria. You know, where they're building that Chili's? In fact, we hear the chain's two-story takeover of a large section of Hawaiian Marketplace is to blame for the shutter of Zinger's.

At the Four Queens, Thatís Life is dead. And, just like that, the title for worst show in Vegas is back up for grabs. Shall we notify Luxor?

Krave Is Closing... Again

Where: 3765 Las Vegas Blvd. S [map], 89109
July 24, 2014 at 3:54 PM | by | Comments (2)

Krave has announced its closure while simultaneously clinging to the tagline of being America's #1 LGBT nightclub.

The nightspot, which seems to have had its greatest days when it was located on the Harmon side of Miracle Mile, will close at its current location as of this Sunday, July 27. After a disastrous downtown move, Krave popped up on The Strip at the Tommy Wind Theater (formerly the Empire Ballroom) last November and even invested in an remodel that brought new furniture, lighting, and a new sound system to the space.

Mamma Mia! Trop's Curse Continues

Where: 3801 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109
July 23, 2014 at 8:14 PM | by | Comments (15)

It's another grand opening, grand closing for Tropicana.

After debuting May 8, Trop's version of the Broadway hit, Mamma Mia!, has turned into a big miss. It's been announced the show will close August 3. We once had high hopes that the production would finally turn things around for the WTF-plagued property, but that changed after we actually saw it and felt the vocals (kind of a major thing here) did not stand out.
