The suits in the executive offices of the Riviera have seemingly been working on more than tying that perfect windsor knot in under four minutes. Some old spaces have been shuttered, one more than once. But, in other areas of the casino, everything old is new again.
After giving the theater a refresh, they've doo-wopped the entertainment lineup, adding Motown acts and mo'. The ol' casino lounge, Le Bistro? New again. And, the Riviera will be buddying up with the spawn of those Pawn Stars come April. Of course, Girls still be Crazy at the Riv and Men are getting into the
act Experience now, too.
The best recent news to come out of the Riviera PR machine for us? An announcement of the Riviera's 3-2-1 drink special which may just be the best on the Strip, happy hour be damned.

Not long ago, we marveled at the amazing video marquee above the now-open Inspire Theater in Fremont East (on the corner of Fremont and Las Vegas Boulevard). Ever since, we've been chomping at the bit to get a look inside. Well, recently, we not only got through the doors, but took in one of the venue's first shows. Was the theater inspiring enough (cough, cough) to give it a thumbs up?

One of the great things about Las Vegas is that itís never really cold outside compared to most of the country. When it gets chilly, most outdoor spaces have heating lamps to keep things toasty. The Linq, being an outdoor
mall retail and dining area, will have a couple bars/restaurants where we can enjoy the great outdoors almost all year round. Pool season isn't the only thing just around the corner; so is outdoor drinking weather.
Chayo was the first restaurant to open at The Linq and it brings not only Mexican food but a premium tequila bar that opens out onto The Linq promenade.†Chorizo empinada? Check! Mas tequila? Check! Outdoor seating? Check! Second-level patio with umbrellas offering shade from the sun? Pass the Puncho Villa!

This one's been a long time coming, but Binion's has finally begun work on a second Fremont-side bar.
We shared the rumor that Binion's might be providing us with another way to liquor in the front before we poker in the rear almost a year ago. This morning, VegasChatter reader Charlie U. let us know that the Cowgirl Up Cantina is officially on the way.

You won't find a piano in every Strip resort, but where they are, they thrive. And, while piano bars may not receive marquee billing on Las Vegas Boulevard, they will at The Linq's BLVD. Cocktail Company which promises to tickle the ivories daily.

A press release went out earlier today setting the dining establishment's debut for March 7. Although, VC fans like Tim G. have known that an opening target date could be found on its website for a few days now. Double Barrel is hailing itself as the first "authentic" roadhouse experience on The Strip (take that, Coyote Ugly):

When a 64-ounce novelty drink just isnít enough to get you through a two-hour gorge-a-thon, opt for unlimited drinks with your buffet. Las Vegas is known for endless buffets so the next logical indulgent step would be to add free-flowing drinks. The Mirage buffet, Cravings, is the next to hop on this beer-and-wine bandwagon.
Upgrade your experience with all-you-can-drink Bud Light, Goose Island IPA and Liberty Creek wines to satisfy all of your cravings at no extra cost. Wine options currently include chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon, and white zinfandel. (Despite being one of the cheapest wines on the shelf, Liberty Creek is surprisingly drinkable.) Lunch at Cravings is priced at $23.99 and dinner is $30.99 ($34.99 on weekends), including drinks.

There was a day where it could be said that the Cosmopolitan didnít get gamblers. It may be still be true that they donít get gamblers, but itís no secret the Cosmo has been trying to acquire gamblers. Over the past year, theyíve been making small tweaks to their casino marketing to draw in more gamblers to supplement their bottom line. One of the more drastic changes to the casino is with Bond Bar.
The Cosmo has copious bars throughout the property making it a favorite place for many to stop, relax and grab a drink. However, gamblers (like this guy) would drop $10 for a drink and head to a casino elsewhere. Thatís no longer necessary as Bond has gone from being just a loud Strip-side bar to being a loud Strip-side bar with video poker and table games.

The first phase of The Linq, the outdoor mall between Flamingo and The Quad, began with six. Just before year's end, O'Sheas, Purple Zebra, Haute Doggery, Starbucks, Chayo, and KOTO all opened along the promenade.

At Monte Carlo, the Strip-facing facade of Double Barrel Roadhouse continues to slowly take on the appearance of a self-described "old-world rustic barn saloon." From what we hear, a small overnight fire at the construction site earlier this month isn't really impacting a new opening timeline of March. Double Barrel had once hoped to debut before 2013's end.

It drove us freakin' bananas.
What the heck was a Rose.Rabbit.Lie.? Why did it have to be a big riddle? And, why couldn't we find out more through a bit of
devious good ol' fashioned sleuthing? Even our invitation to a pre-opening preview at the Cosmo produced more questions than answers. Ok, we received no real answers.
It was flabbergasting. In the Las Vegas of today, there are no such things as secrets. There are no unknowns, anymore. Just look at the posts that fill this site. The Internet and anonymous tipsters reveal all long before there's an official 'coming soon' press release, let alone opening. So, when VegasChatter was invited to experience Rose.Rabbit.Lie. for ourselves, we had not a clue as to what to expect. Hell, we didn't even know how to dress and felt compelled to ask for advice.

When it comes to craft beer on The Strip, our cups may soon overfloweth. And, that's definitely not a bad thing.
When Public House at Venetian opened back in 2011 it claimed bragging rights for having not just the city's, but the state of Nevada's first certified beer cicerone (read: know-it-all). Fast forward to this past November when Mandalay Bay hired the state's only female cicerone to help helm its food and beverage program, with a special focus on expanding the resort's beer menus.
