Fulton Street? Street food? Food hall? Even the name of the newest creative culinary experience at Harrah’s is a little confusing. What exactly is Fulton Street Food Hall? All of the above and so much more is what we’ve deduced so far. After sampling a wide variety of the options at this venue (yes, we’ll call it a venue for now), we are suitably impressed, but feel we should give you a detailed lowdown so you'll be better prepared for your first visit.
Fulton is not a traditional food court nor is it a quite a cafeteria or a buffet, but rather a weird hybrid of the three, kind of like an a la carte buffet. But, then again, it does have a sit-down restaurant component, too, open from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m. daily. And, a sushi bar, a noodle bar, and a bar bar, too. Oh, don’t forget the self-serve fro-yo station. Or, the bakery case up front. We’re also told there will be a mini-bulk candy station coming soon so it will have a bit of Sugar Factory's essence thrown in because why not?

Harrah's says it's not a food court, but if it looks like a food court and serves like a food court...
The round-the-clock Fulton Street Food Hall -- termed as a marketplace and to-go cafe by execs and being hailed as a Strip first -- has been described, to us at least, as something akin to what you'd find in a Whole Foods as far as quality and set-up. Guests order what they wish from a range of options and stations and then head to one central register (for the most part) to check-out. Think of it as upscale fast-casual, if you will. However you reference it, the dining experience is now open to all.

The Strip of today is not the Strip of tomorrow. And, when we say tomorrow, we don't just mean the near|distant future, we mean tomorrow tomorrow.
On-going construction continues to bring us a slightly different Vegas each day. Last week, we checked up on six different projects, from the tear-down of a never-completed resort to a casino remodel. The 18 photos below, snapped by Greg C. and @paperposter, were captured between August 19 and August 22. So, yeah, expect five of these projects to be slightly more advanced today.
At The Harmon, the latest phase of a year-long demolition brings a crane and black barrier drapes. The condo-hotel never opened due to construction errors.

A Facebook fan page for Las Vegas lounge lizard extraordinaire, Cook E. Jarr, is reporting the singer is about to hang up the mic. His last day at Harrah's is being reported as August 27. That leaves today, August 20, next Tuesday, August 26 and next Wednesday, August 27 as possibly your very last chances to see him.

It's been almost a month since our last resort fees story so, you know, it's time. And, not to disappoint, we have updates for you from both sides of The Strip.
The first came to us from VegasChatter tipster Duane D. who writes:
I just booked a room at Harrah’s through Expedia and found out later that they will want another $24.64 PER DAY up from the $18.00 shown on your list. This is a big rip off so I will (be) cancelling the room until they smarten up.
It is not the costs that is the problem, but to quote one price and then virtually double it for very dubious reasons makes it unethical. Even if they have covered their themselves legally, which they have, does not make it right. Whatever happened to the theory of just getting people there and then hosing them in the casinos – we all know that happens and are prepared for it but to expect more in other ways is just too much.Good luck to them.

The newest changes at Harrah's will arrive sooner than you might have guessed.
Earlier this week, we told you about the new food hall and casino bar that were under construction; last night, VegasChatter reader Jeff C. filled us in on just when to expect them.

In December, we told you how the aging resort was betting big on a casino floor revamp. One month later, we filled you in on plans for a new fast-casual dining experience that would replace Ming's Table and The Cafe at Harrah's.
In Vegas, rooms with a view often come at a premium and that's now the case for two hotels closest to the city's newest attraction, The High Roller observation wheel (which all happen to be owned by the same company).
VegasChatter fan @strong2us sent us a note to let us know that High Roller View room categories have now sprung to life:
As predicted a month or so ago on Vegas Chatter, it's happened! I booked a room in October at Harrah's and they now charge $10 more per night for a "High Roller View King Room." Even more for 2 queens or a premium room with the "view." Just thought you'd want to know it happened! Most likely at all the bordering CET properties.
The High Roller is open and has forever changed the Vegas skyline. With this new addition comes a new crop of Las Vegas tourists eager to get a good view of the new attraction. While it can be seen from many parts of The Strip, readers are asking which hotel rooms have the best view of the world's tallest observation wheel.
So far, VegasChatter reader strong2us has reported that the rooms in the back of Harrah’s (touted to have “mountain views”) have a clear line of sight to the High Roller. Another VegasChatter reader, Al D., reported having a great view from the 25th floor of Harrah’s. Here are the daytime and nighttime shots he sent as proof:

Las Vegas will soon have two new ways to entertain you, plus new chances to see a cult fave.
At Harrah's, Jason Alexander will take the stage as part of a four-week weekend residency beginning April 11. The actor best known as George Costanza on Seinfeld, will perform his one-man show, An Evening With Jason Alexander And His Hair, on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays through the limited engagement.

From the desk of Mr. N. Pappagiorgio, gambling updates from The Strip to afar:
☛VegasChatter reader Mark. B. recently tipped us off to upcoming changes to table games at Harrah's. A floor manager there informed him that progressive table game bonuses are going bye-bye. He furthers reports being told all table games will be made like the "Million Dollar 3-Card Poker" already prevalent at Caesars properties.
What this means for gamblers is that
sucker side bets will no longer land a relatively smaller progressive jackpot and instead will fund a larger landfall that has an even unlikelier (yep, it's like that) chance of winning. Mark also points out this change will double the smallest table bets to $10 per hand leaving Casino Royale with the only $5 tables on the Strip.
