Las Vegas has seen celebrity residencies, restaurants, hotels and even salons. But, aside from Nobu hotel and restaurant, big names rarely venture outside of their small ponds, sticking to the discipline they know best. In May, that will change when Suzanne Somers, best known for her ditzy role as Chrissy on Three's Company, launches a residency at Westgate. And, opens a spa there. And, debuts a cafe, too.

After taking time off for family and health, Celine Dion will return to the Colosseum stage this August, ending what will then be a year-long hiatus. She made the announcement to fans last night via social media.

With less than two months to go to its debut, MGM Resorts' City of Rock continues to take shape across from the SLS on the north Strip. The outdoor festival grounds will launch in May with the two-weekend, mega-concert event, Rock in Rio, set to take place May 8-9 and 15-16.

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.

After leaving Rio to make way for a Duck Commander, MJ Live had hoped to glide over to a new locale at Riviera. A planned opening of March 2, however, never happened as the hotel-casino is now in its final weeks of operation after being sold to the LVCVA (Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority). The Riv, if you haven't heard by now, will close its doors at noon May 4.

It looks like the Plaza is back with another
short-lived new show. Lovers or Losers: The Game Show is a live production sure to please fans of the Game Show Network (GSN). Whether those people are the ones frequenting Plaza and will actually buy tickets remains to be seen.
The game show takes advantage of the fact that thousands of couples come to Las Vegas either on vacation or specifically to get married. Why not put them on the spot and test their love? Couples are pitted against each other and must use their skills and love to make sure they come out as lovers and not losers. #seewhatthey #ohyoudid

While the event will feature big-name performers, it lacks at least one thing: parking on site. There will be zero parking at the festival grounds so attendees -- anticipated to be upwards of 50,000 to 85,000 a day -- will have to hoof it or opt for the monorail, shuttles or cabs. Stratosphere, however, is offering up another option, as first reported by the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

After promising to be back in February and failing, Defending the Caveman is finally laying its spear down in Downtown Vegas. The one-man show lost its home at Harrah's in January on the cusp of its four-year anniversary at the Strip hotel.

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 March 2:
You've Got Some More Eating To Do: Las Vegas Restaurant Week returns June 15-26 and only for those dates this year. The event will no longer take place twice yearly with spring and fall dates. During the week, restaurants across the city join together to offer special prix fixe meals ranging from $20.15 to $50.15 with a portion of the proceeds benefitting local food bank Three Square.
Zumanity / New York-New York / Shows / Entertainment / The Strip / VegasChatter Reviews / → All Tags
After many successful years on The Strip, the brains behind New York-New York's Zumanity decided to “reinvigorate" their production (see also: fired some cast members, hired some new cast members, and altered and added some scenes). They invited us along to a media night to rediscover the show.
If you haven’t seen Zumanity before, the show is unlike the other Cirque Du Soleil shows in town. The others are family friendly, they’re safe, and the cast members don’t try to… ya know, prod you with questions about your sex toy preferences. Zumanity, on the other hand, Is like that one weird person we all know that’s a little dark, a little unpredictable, and a little shall we say, “off." Basically, Zumanity is not for everyone. It’s sexual. It’s raunchy. And, its risqué. So, if you aren’t in to that, you might not like it. If you are, like me, then the show is an absolute must see!

The tour, entitled Symphony of the Goddess - Master Quest, celebrates the 28-year-old video game franchise. This sounds both nerdy and quite interesting, at the same time. During the production, The Las Vegas Philharmonic will perform orchestral arrangements of music from a variety of games from The Legend of Zelda universe. There will also be video content from the classic game, as well as the most recent addition to the series, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds (which is available for Nintendo 3DS).
