Tropicana, Luxor Add New Experiences For The LGBTQ Community

April 7, 2014 at 6:05 PM | by | Comments (8)

The Las Vegas Strip has several new entertainment options, some of them within the gay community and more on the way. As the High Roller began spinning so did the DJs at Tropicana Beach Club and Savile Row. If you’re scratching your head and asking “where?”, you aren’t alone. Despite the failure of both Krave Massive and Drink and Drag to resurrect downtown's struggling Neonopolis, two Strip coldspots are heating things up with gay-themed events.

Just One Dish At Tender Steak And Seafood That's Not Steak Or Seafood

Where: 3900 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109

Sometimes, a full restaurant review just won't do. Perhaps, there wasn't time for an A-Z meal. Maybe we just don't want to spoil it all. Or, a dog ate our good pictures. There may still be that one dish worth writing about. A new one, an old one. A newsworthy one or a memorable one (for better or worse). It might be the one dish, or drink, out of the whole experience that gets us to return. Or, stay away.

TENDER steak and seafood at Luxor wants you know its known for steak and seafood so much that it's right there in the name. But, we want to inform readers of Just One Dish from the menu that stands on its own. And, it's neither steak or seafood.

New LGBTQ Experiences Headed To The Strip

March 19, 2014 at 12:59 PM | by | Comments (5)

Bally's will debut a new gay club on The Strip this summer. Tropicana is turning up the heat with "Saturgays" and a new LGBTQ-focused, Saturday only beach party, Xposed! opening March 29. And now, Luxor is expanding its own reach to the gay travel segment by launching Provocouture in addition to its long-running Temptation Sundays pool parties (which return May 18).

Drunk In Love With Vegas

March 18, 2014 at 3:30 PM | by | Comments (2)

The grandeur of Vegas can jade people pretty quickly, one thing after another raising the bar and making incredibly cool things seem mundane. But, nothing rekindles appreciation like a long night of drinking. Or, so we've heard. After indulging in a few during a recent bachelor party weekend, this writer found himself intoxicated in with Vegas. Here were a few of my favorite sights:

Go-Go Dancers at Flamingo

Strolling past beautiful women in Vegas is nothing new, but for some reason, I couldn't resist the moving bodies I saw out of the corner of my eye while passing the Flamingo. Like a bug to a light, my shoulders turned, slowly closing the distance and stopping to stand in the entryway, my left shoulder on the edge of the doorway. Careful: Limit staring to five minutes, lest you draw attention from security or, worse, fall in love.

Luxor Is Remodeling Its Room... Corridors

Where: 3900 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109

That moment when Luxor takes to social media to announce it's remodeling and you get all excited and then you see it's renovating its room corridors. Its corridors. But, we guess it's a start, right?

And, This is Why We're Already Looking Forward to January...

December 18, 2013 at 7:20 PM | by | Comments (3)

Rice & Company, the healthy Asian restaurant at Luxor, has given us a reason to look past the holidays and ahead to the end of January. And, if you've sworn off carbs in the New Year, you will probably break your diet for this.

It's called The Thunder Roll and the specialty sushi roll was created in honor of Thunder From Down Under at the neighboring Excalibur casino. It's made with a blend of soft shell crab, tuna, avocado and cucumber, wrapped in seaweed and topped with spicy mayo and kabayaki sauce. (Thankfully, no body oil.) Above is one of the Thunder dancers demonstrating how to eat the Thunder Roll.

And, here he is demonstrating how to pose with several Thunder rolls on your naked abdomen:

Las Vegas Pride Takes Flight (And Hits A Few Snags)

September 12, 2013 at 1:48 PM | by | Comments (2)

Last week, we gave you a primer on the upcoming LGBT events in Las Vegas, then scurried off to the gym to prepare for the requisite pool parties. This week, we’re back with some details, several photos, and our dignity intact. (Thank you, steamed vegetables and chicken.)

This year’s PRIDE festivities have come and gone, but it was hardly a 'blink and you’ll miss it' event. In fact, there may have been too many things to do. Las Vegas PRIDE had teamed up with Orlando’s Gay Days and MGM Resorts’ FABULOUS events to make 2013 the biggest year yet. But, the end result was somewhat chaotic.

Is LVH's D*Word Delightful Or Disappointing?

Where: 3000 Paradise Road [map], 89109
August 27, 2013 at 3:23 PM | by | Comments (2)

Ladies, we've all been there, haven't we? (Men, don't get scared away by the women talk.) Digging out of the rubble of an imploded relationship with the help of our girlfriends and a music list of the greatest break-up and move on songs? The cast of The D*Word at the LVH sure hopes so.

For those who can't guess from the the tag line of "ditched, dumped, divorced, and dating," The D*Word is all about women and the pursuit of love. Sorry, guys, this one really isn't for you, although, you may get dragged to see it.

Written by Jeanie Linders, who also wrote Menopause the Musical which is currently lighting the stage at Luxor, The D*Word seems like a natural progression for a woman who found much success in delivering a tongue-in-cheek send-up of "the change." While this writer hasn't seen Menopause yet, the rave reviews for it made me excited to see what exploits I'd be taken on during The D*Word's 90-minute run time.

A Vegas Virgin Does Vegas With Other Virgins

August 21, 2013 at 3:18 PM | by | Comments (4)

We told you about our first time... visiting Vegas, that is. And, some of you have told us about yours. Now it's time for another of VegasChatter's writers, who pens stories under Jproz, to tell us about his.

My first visit to Vegas was doomed to be an absolute gong show and disaster from the minute we departed! First off, this trip was orchestrated as my birthday celebration and involved about 14 people. We found a discounted trip out of an airport about 4.5 hours from home and decided to take it. (Home is Canada.) The problem was that the flight left at 6 a.m. so midnight found us all piling into cars and fleeing from our better judgement. Oh, and did I mention we were all virgins?

This Vegas Virgin Met His Wife

July 26, 2013 at 12:25 PM | by | Comments (4)

We told you about our first time... visiting Vegas, that is. And, some of you have told us about yours. Now it's time for one of VegasChatter's newest writers, KenBelk, to tell us about his.

My first trip to Vegas was in January of 2010. After graduating from the University of Missouri just a month earlier, it seemed like the perfect pat on the back to take the much needed virgin voyage to Sin City.

Due to the requirements of the awesomely cheap deal found on Southwest Vacations, I needed to find someone to be the other half of my "couples' vacation." My brother was already booked with his soon-to-be fiancé (he would get engaged on this trip) and -- with all of my friends from school being broke -- it was suggested I split the price with my soon-to-be sister-in-law's best friend. Slightly confusing, really boring, but all of this will become much more interesting later in the story.

Today's PSA Reminder: Not All Hotel Rooms Have WiFi

July 16, 2013 at 6:51 PM | by | Comments (11)

Sometimes, working from the desk of a Las Vegas hotel room just doesn't work. And, for a recent Luxor guest who needed to get online, a working Internet connection just wouldn't work. Christian T. took to the hotel's Facebook page to write:

It's pretty pathetic that this is what I need to do in order to get internet in my room at the Luxor - 2001 called and asked for their network cable back. Tomorrow I'm getting a room at the Mandalay bay and checking out of here...I will never again stay here.

Vegas To Get Even More Fabulous Again

July 15, 2013 at 6:34 PM | by | Comments (4)

The resorts of MGM, erm, Resorts will make Las Vegas twice as fabulous again this year with the return of Fabulous Las Vegas. The now annual LGBT celebration has been moved back a few months, though, to run concurrent with Las Vegas' also annual PRIDE parade and festival. Fabulous was held in July last year (and August before that), but will run September 3-8 this time around. PRIDE's festivities typically occur in September and are set for September 6-7 this year.

Fabulous Las Vegas -- which attracts hundreds of participants -- will see events up and down The Strip, from PRIDE Family Bingo at Circus Circus to Temptation Sundays at Luxor. (Psst, you can experience both outside of this week, too, if you can't make it but still want to be, you know, fabulous.) Deals will also be offered for Zarkana at Aria, Zumanity at New York-New York and stand-up comedy shows by Margaret Cho and Kathy Griffin at The Mirage. At least a half dozen restaurants will discount dining as well.
