Head to the Prohibition-style speakeasy this holiday weekend and gain free admission by dropping a limited-time password -- bootlegger. But, make sure you whisper it so everyone around you can watch in awe as you're greeted with a smile, a wink and the perfect three-day weekend treat, complimentary entry into a swingin' nightspot where tantalizing burlesque, jazz and quality cocktails are the name of the game.

Shrouded in mystery due to both its "secretive" location and unique theme, 1923 Bourbon & Burlesque by Holly Madison officially opened with a bang on May 1 at Mandalay Bay. The Prohibition Era speakeasy with a creative cocktail menu, raucous jazz music and 25-person cigar bar has all the makings of something one would find in the HBO hit Boardwalk Empire, with a modern, Vegas-infused twist.

Holly's World is back. No, not Holly Madison's reality TV show (we don't think). And no, she's not returning to Planet Hollywood (that territory is still Britney's, bitch). So, perhaps, we should just say -- Holly's back. The former blonde and Peepshow star will bring 1923 Bourbon & Burlesque to Mandalay Bay next month.
Set to take over the long dormant space once occupied by Ivan Kane's Forty Deuce (yes, burlesque will replace burlesque), 1923 will continue to feed Vegas' on-going fascination with speakeasies and the art of the va-va-voom. A press release details the experience that awaits:
Cold Justice is still a couple weeks away (and not set in Las Vegas, anyway) while midnight Bounty Hunters are tough to catch regularly. One sports gambling show has debuted to a giant pan of dud while another is on its way. So, what's a Las Vegas reality TV freak to do? Look for more shows, that's what.
Luckily For better or worse, there's no shortage lately.
One guy from Pussykat Tattoo Parlor and his sidekick randomly travel around the city in search of... you guessed it... bad ink they can fix. These punk rock dudes are seemingly extremely lucky with a great eye in finding the world's absolute worst tattoos. They find one poor sap who tattooed a wedding proposal on his leg right before his sweet Nina was deported and never heard from again. Another put a monkey on his stomach using his belly button for a butthole. In a tat ripped from the
headlines movies, a woman with "NO REGERTS." Then we see a guy with a Patrick Swayze tat. On his ass. Dude. The winner so far, though, is a the bikini clad suntanner with Pamela Anderson's mug below a gigantic back scorpion and above her ass crack. The scorpion gets approved while Pam must go.
Did someone really think a Pam Anderson tramp stamp was a good idea? Worse yet, unless she paid five bucks at a fly-by-night Hep-C carnival, what artist let her walk out their door with that buttface of a tattoo? Yeah, we're skeptical that at least some of these jobs weren't quickly and badly inked in the offices of TV producers.
Even with our doubts on authenticity, Bad Ink earns a slightly positive entertainment value over replacement TV. Assuming the final fixes are real, there is some talent on display. At the very least, camera crews venture into some Vegas spots that haven't been widely filmed, namely lots of Artisan with some
coincidentally sister property Rumor and Peppermill thrown in. So, while we haven't set a DVR season pass, we've tuned in to watch a lot, lot worse.
Bad Ink airs Sundays at 10 p.m. on A&E. You can catch previously aired full episodes online. As for the validity of their punk rock status, that's at least real. You can watch clips of their band, The Vermin, shout out a song titled FU Too and playing in several venues around Vegas, including BB King's and the Double Down on YouTube.
Holly Madison surprised and shocked us a few weeks ago. For the most part she's been out of the Vegas limelight since leaving Peepshow. First of all, this writer didn't realize that she frequented The Steakhouse at Circus Circus. It's not one of the celebrity hotspots we're used to seeing her at. But, we digress. The real shocker from Holly was the following tweet about the butter at The Steakhouse:
Had an amazing dinner @circusvegas Steakhouse as always-they need to bring back the cow-shaped butter, tho!— Holly Madison (@hollymadison) January 7, 2013
Just because Holly Madison has hung up the crook doesn't mean we
can forget can't follow her. She may be keeping the bobbles under wraps these days, but that hasn't stopped her from showing off a little pineapple.
It seems the former Bo Peep/reality star not once but twice turned author turned rag mag model turned infomercial/diet pill hawker turned pet accessories designer turned baby mama is turning back to the pen.. err... typerwriter... ummm... keyboard. It's okay, Holly, we still wanna be a Toys R' Us kid, too.
There's no better website to spend our birthday gift card money at than Holly Madison's online store -- are we right or are we right? Who's right there with us? Where'd everyone go? Must be busy buying last year's calendar at 25% off. With bargains like that it's amazing there's any left.
A new find in the Holly store answers the question to what's in store for life after Peepshow aside from hershey squirts and diaper runs. The Holly Madison pet line is live for all your pooch needs. Yes, pet fans, Holly now sells two-inch balls to bat around, tri-color ropes, leather-banded leashes, bonnas, twinkle bone tees, and more.
Out of all the rumored replacements for Holly Madison in Peepshow she was our favorite. And, now it's for reals. Coco will be the new Bo Peep on the Vegas Strip. And, really, how could you not pick the only candidate who faithfully posts Titty Tuesday pics on social media each week?
Coco reported the news on Twitter:
The news is... I'll be taking Holly Madison's place headlining for the sexiest show in Vegas at Planet Hollywood's Casino called"Peepshow"— Coco (@cocosworld) September 25, 2012
Remember when there was no escaping Holly Madison in Las Vegas? Between airings of Holly's World, filming of Holly's World, making Vegas appearances, insuring her appearances, and staging appearances, Holly was in the news, making news, showing up on TV or around town. She got around so much we had a dedicated team just to track her bobbles. Holly and Vegas were becoming so synonymous she even wrote the book on Vegas.
Then the Vegas appearances started disappearing. The future of Holly's World came into question while she became better known for gossip mag photos and shilling diet pills or the next Snuggie. No matter what she was doing away from Peepshow, the one constant was that she still bared those bobbles on stage five nights a week.

Holly's world is getting bigger.
Still shaking her peep'ers at Planet Hollywood through December (we think), Holly Madison has revealed to Us Weekly that she's 12 weeks preggers. The baby daddy? Electric Daisy Carnival's Pasquale Rotella whom Holly has been dating for nine months.
Just last month, Holly told In Touch that she had "started the adoption process" and was considering a child from Africa or South Korea. Math's not really our strong suit, but we're pretty sure that means she was already knocked up when she said that.
If you've missed Holly's World and love buying things that you don't need but #seemsright at 3 a.m., we have a 2-for-1 for you!
The out-going star of Peepshow at Planet Hollywood won't fade away into obscurity after her run ends this December, she'll
jump right into it be back on television again thanks to the launch of a new partnership with As Seen on TV.
We knew she wasn't going to stay forever but we had long clung to the thought that maybe, just maybe, Holly Madison would become a permanent fixture in Las Vegas for years and years to come. Like the female version of Wayne Newton maybe.
“Performing in PEEPSHOW has honestly been a dream come true,” says Madison. “I’m so proud to have made a mark in Las Vegas with this amazing show and am looking forward to celebrating PEEPSHOW with my fans through the end of the year.”
So far, there's no word on what Holly will do next. Her Twitter and Facebook feeds have not yet addressed her Peepshow departure so we are wildly curious to see if she will actually stay in Vegas or head back to Los Angeles, perhaps for another reality show. We just hope she's done with all that weight-loss supplement shilling.
Either way, she's got until at least December to decide. Meanwhile, tickets for Peepshow are still open for this weekend starting at $40 a pop.
