The LINQ's new pool is so fresh and so clean, y'all. And, you can get slizzard (not that slizzard, but since it's 21 and over, a little slizzard) by indulging in its poolside cocktail menu. Here's how you can stay hydrated, while drinking plenty of water, of course, poolside at the LINQ:

The dining spot by Brian Malarkey opens to the public Friday evening, although some lucky luckertons are previewing it tonight. We spied the (almost) Top Chef checking out his newest destination earlier today. The eatery takes over the former Munchbar space adjacent to Omnia and features an eclectic, homey decor, with mismatched chairs, area rugs and rustic woods.

There are few things that sound as great as the combination of beer and music, at least to this guy. The Vegas Beer and Music Festival combines both and adds a rock n' roll fashion show April 3 at SLS Las Vegas (formerly the Sahara).
The event will bring together more than 50 craft breweries from Las Vegas and southern California, including Banger Brewing, New Belgium and Stone Brewing. The music portion of the festival will include performances by Falling Doves and Dan Fester. The fashion show is hosted by Romantic Rock. You can see a sample of the show here. (Click if like rock chicks in bikinis.)

VegasChatter Twitter follower @wclsc59 recently asked us about the best Vegas venues for open bar options. If you’re aiming to drink for an extended period of time, the standard $12-$14 cocktails at many bars will add up quick. Many open bar options will be more budget friendly, but remember, just because your wallet can handle it, doesn’t mean your liver can!
If you’re in the ‘burbs out at Red Rock's Mercadito (or can get there), brunch comes with a two-hour open bar featuring cocktails, wine or beer plus three brunch items to share. It’s $38.50 per guest and includes standard brunch drinks like margaritas, mimosas, Bloody Marys and a variety of fruity concoctions.

The Mirage is building a new dream experience. We know this because it says so right on the construction wall.
Where poker was once the only name of the game will rise two new drinking spots, Center Bar and Parlor Lounge. Since an official announcement has yet to be made, here's what we can surmise from those same construction wraps:

The green beer will be flowing in just a few days and, on the Las Vegas Strip, no three spots will get their Irish on more than O'Sheas at The LINQ, Rí Rá at Mandalay Place and pretty much all of New York-New York. Here's a rundown of what to expect at each for St. Patrick's Day:
Developer and whisky enthusiast Mahesh Patel is returning to Vegas and bringing another year of the finest whisky experience the world has to offer. It's literally a smorgasbord of only the the best spirits, and as much as you'd like. There is hardly an event like this in the world, and on March 11-14, whisky lovers will come from all over the globe to convene at Wynn|Encore.

An interesting trend for some higher-end shopping areas around the country are "bottle it yourself" stores. Most sell different flavors of oil and vinegar and sometimes alcohol, but too many are dressed-up, get-rich-quick schemes that buy a couple industrial barrels of the base ingredient and inject artificial lab-grown "aromas" into them. This is very similar to the way certain vodka brands have every meme flavor under the sun (lol at bacon, maple, cotton candy, and bourbon flavored vodka) and generally has the same effect. However, it would appear these are all pale imitations of other enterprises like VOM FASS.

There's a lot of sh*t that happens in Vegas and not all of it can make it on our site as a full report. So, every Friday, we take note of some of the smaller announcements around town that may be of interest, too. Here's the rundown for the week of February 23:
Route 91 Tickets On Sale Soon: Country lovers, mark your calendars. The Route 91 concert series will return to the MGM Resorts Village (the
parking events lot across from Luxor) October 2-4 and tickets go on sale March 13. For its second Vegas stop, the three-day, two-stage event will feature Florida Georgia Line, Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Jake Owen and more. Purchase tickets online. Make sure you check out the upgraded VIP options (now with shade and better restrooms!) before you buy.

If you are looking for something fun to do in Vegas this March, circle the 21st on your calendar. That's when House of Blues will host Local Brews Local Grooves, a beer tasting and music festival.
I attended the event when it was last held in December. It was actually a chill, fun night with good music, a large selection of craft beers to sample, and a variety of unique food and beverage pairings. (When I went, they creatively paired one of the beers with an ice cream sandwich and it was damn good.)

Is Flamingo launching an intensive top-to-bottom overhaul which will bring more room updates? Or, is what's happening around the center Strip hotel-casino meant to update, but not overdo? The big picture over at Flamingo is still unknown, but one thing's certain -- this dirty bird is molting.
Yesterday, the resort's Tropical Breeze Cafe marked its last day of service while the Paradise Garden Buffet scaled back hours last month to just 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Now, VegasChatter fan Jeff C. brings us our latest report on Flamingo, complete with images captured this past weekend.
