Calling all Fanilows! That’s just fun to write. Joking aside, this should be your last chance to see Barry Manilow in Vegas, if he keeps to the promise in the name of the show. He’s bringing his ONE LAST TIME! tour to Vegas, where he performed over 400 shows between his standing gigs at the Las Vegas Hilton and Paris Las Vegas.

This Friday will see the return of two ice rinks to the Strip, but only two. Venetian, the original purveyors of traditional winter fun on Las Vegas Boulevard, decided to hang up its skates this season, however, Cosmopolitan and Caesars Palace will still be in the game.
Today, Caesars officials announced the return of their self-described Caesars Chalet which will once again be located Stripside. Both the Chalet and Cosmo's Ice Rink (a transformed Boulevard Pool) will debut November 21 while Caesars' attraction will run slightly longer closing January 11 instead of January 4 like its competitor.

Next year will mark the fifth anniversary (in Vegas) for the music festival which brings hundreds of thousands together in the name of EDM. Tickets will go on sale December 1 at noon PT. Three-day general admission will be priced at $329 while VIP passes will begin at $699. As in prior years, no single day tickets will be sold, but you will be able to make the cost a bit easier to handle thanks to a layaway option. And, you might want to seriously consider it as pricing is significantly higher than last year which saw general admission at $249 and VIP access at $499.

This New Year's Eve, thirty bucks is all it takes to jam out to Van Halen, Queen, Duran Duran, Aerosmith, and more on Fremont Street. Or, rather the music of all those groups as rock classics will delivered all night long by tribute bands.

The annual Rock 'n' Roll Las Vegas Marathon returns this weekend with an additional race, a new time, a lot of sweaty bodies and some headaches for those not participating. The marathon takes runners all over Las Vegas and that means lots of road closures to ensure the safety of participants. This year’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon also has a half marathon for people who don't want to endure as much on their feet. With the additional race there will be a different course than previous years and there will be different road closures than in the past.
A 5k will take place tomorrow, Saturday, November 15 beginning at 6 p.m. and on Sunday, November 16 for the main marathon as well as a half marathon (both starting at 4:30 p.m.) and a half of a half (a 3:30 p.m. start). That's expected to cause closures from 2 p.m. to 2 a.m. Most of the marathon will take place on the Vegas Strip between Russell Road and Ogden Avenue while the 5k will do a loose loop around the SLS. Closures will extend well beyond the Vegas Strip. Here are road closures and approximate times to avoid or, if you'd like to watch, to line the streets for Sunday's marathon:

VegasChatter reader @paperposter recently checked out the newly launched KISS residency at The Joint at Hard Rock and shared his thoughts with us. His only real issue with the show is that it's only about 90 minutes. With the massive catalog KISS has, the show’s length leaves fans wanting more.
He noted Def Leppard and Gun ‘N Roses, who had similar residency stints at The Joint, played for closer to double the time of the long-tongued ones. On the plus side, KISS did bring the expected pyrotechnics and special effects they are known for.

With high temps in the 70s, things are not even close to beginning to look or feel like Christmas in Vegas. Since snow on the Strip is rare (but, yes, it has happened just check out the photo below from 2008), we usually make our own joy in our own small, over-the-top way.

This is the month to be a car enthusiast in Vegas. Ten of thousands are here this week for SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) as well as AAPEX (Aftermarket Automotive Industry Show), however, neither convention is open to the public. Car lovers who can't get in will just need to idle their passions a bit longer for a chance at their own ticket to ride. That's because the Motor Trend International Auto Show will throw things into overdrive November 28-30 for one and all.

South Point takes its bowling very seriously. If you’ve ever been in the casino, chances are you’ve shared an elevator from the parking garage with somebody carrying a professional-looking bowling bag, or seen them walking to the bowling center. In addition to the 64-lane South Point Bowling Center that’s open to the public almost 24 hours a day (except during lane maintenance 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. daily), South Point just opened the new South Point Bowling Plaza.
After signing a 12-year deal with the United States Bowling Congress (USBC), Las Vegas Events, and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, the South Point is ready to become the home of several USBC annual events including the USBC Women’s Championships in 2016 and the USBC Open Championships in 2017. South Point’s general manager Ryan Growney said the facility already has these commitments for major tournaments booked 12 years in advance and expects to attract other championships when the USBC events aren’t going on, including, hopefully, the ABT and Military Bowling Championships.
Last week, we mentioned that a Formula 1 race could be coming to the Strip in a couple of years. Well, there’s an auto race coming very close to the Vegas Strip and you only need to wait a few days to see it.
The Red Bull Global Rallycross Championship will be held here November 4-5 for the third consecutive year. This time around, the race will be held at The Linq. No, silly, they won’t be racing where the shops are located. The race will be held in The Linq
parking event lot behind the High Roller at Winnick Avenue and Koval Lane.
