And Piff said, "What about breakfast at Piffany's?"
The other month, when we told you about Vegas Nocturne, now playing at Rose.Rabbit.Lie. at The Cosmopolitan, we tried to keep some (ok, mostly all) of the acts a mystery so we wouldn't give too much of the show away. That's because it's one of the most unusual shows in Vegas and we're firm believers in that you should see it completely unprepared for what might happen.
That said, we did happen to fall drunk in love with one of the acts -- Piff The Magic Dragon and his assistant, Mr. Piffles.

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?

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).
Beacher's Madhouse fits into the theme of Vegas as adult Disneyland.
On a recent Saturday night, we dove in after being greeted by Jeff Beacher himself, exuding Willy Wonka's warm, insane charm. Walking inside, we discovered a busy, 8,500-square-foot venue filled with party people.
The location of Beacher's within MGM Grand is outstanding: itís near a busy casino walkway which guests must pass through to go to new-ish mega club, Hakkasan. This ensures there will always be curious customers to tempt inside. (Although, we dread parking at MGM Grand. A 10 dollar bribe, however, gained our way into valet this night.)
Entering Beacher's, you don't immediately notice the stage. Four rows of VIP tables extend down the narrow venue. What you do immediately see is performers dressed up as everything from Cookie Monster, Barney, Pink Gorilla and Tigger to a midget Mister T and a Pee Wee Herman look-alike.

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.

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.

The Smith Center is ready to get a leg up on the Broadway Series to come. The downtown performing arts center has announced its full schedule of shows set to begin August 2014 and continue through May 2014 and we're, once again, geeked out about it.

The general public will be able to purchase new subscriptions beginning May 12. Individual tickets will be announced at a later date.
Here's a complete rundown of what to expect and when as well as video previews from their Broadway counterparts:

With its first concert less than a month away, Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas is almost ready to
impress bowl us over at The Linq. Things are coming together so quickly that reps hope to receive a TCO (Temporary Certificate of Occupancy) by week's end, meaning construction is nearly complete.
One of the folks charged with making Brooklyn Bowl a reality on The Strip, David Pray, has been tweeting tantalizing peeks inside (and outside) the bowling alley-slash-restaurant-slash-concert venue for several weeks now. UPDATE: Brooklyn Bowl has decided no pics for you! All the tweets were deleted after our post. Thanks to Matt Brown for the heads up.
