VegasChatter fan Karen from Pittsburgh recently wrote in to ask us for an update:
If anyone would know, I figure it would be one of you guys. We are coming to Vegas in late September, and have to stay at Mandalay Bay for the Barrett Jackson Auction (Sept. 25-27). But I was wondering if The Hotel would be completed as The Delano. I would love to stay there if it was done, and I can't find any good info on it. When going to book rooms, it still comes up at The Hotel at Mandalay Bay.
When we mentioned the coming soon nightlife venture by Holly Madison - 1923 Bourbon & Burlesque - last week, VegasChatter reader Doug K. dropped us a line to say he was disappointed with the bourbon offerings. It was something flagged by this writer as well. An online list of the venue's rye/bourbon offerings was mostly populated with the ever popular rye/whiskys and very few real bourbons. This left us with an uneasy feeling over a new lounge that had bourbon in the name!
But, Doug didn't just sit idly by and let this seeming injustice go unnoticed. He took to the 1923 Bourbon & Burlesque Facebook page and let them know! And, since that time, the website's listings for bourbon has increased exponentially.

The actual event is sold out, but there are lots of ways to get a
little bit whole lotta country in Las Vegas leading up to the 49th Academy of Country Music Awards airing live from MGM Grand Sunday, April 6.
The ACM week kick-off party will take place Thursday, April 3 at The Linq and is free to the public. Hunter Hayes will headline the event which will also feature a country market, food trucks, a fun zone, and more. Rock out starting at 6 p.m. that evening. Hunter won't perform until 9:45 p.m., but Sasha McVeigh (6:55 p.m.), Cole Swindell (7:35 p.m.) and David Nail (8:25 p.m.) will perform before then.
The newly opened High Roller observation wheel will also serve as a dramatic backdrop for the ACM Party for a Cause set for newly created festival grounds just east of The Linq promenade. The music event, starring Rascal Flatts and Keith Urban, will take place April 4-5 and tickets are still available. The only catch is that there are no single-day entries available anymore. Folks looking to jam must now purchase a two-day general admission or VIP pass priced at $73.50 or $275, respectively and including fees. Rascal Flatts, Thomas Rhett, and Cadillac Three will perform Friday while Keith Urban, Jerrod Niemann, Joe Nichols, and Chris Young will perform Saturday. Gates open at 4 p.m. Friday and noon on Saturday.

The big event set for March 29 has finally come and gone. And, we don’t mean Earth Hour or the first rides on the High Roller, even though those little blips happened, too. No, we're referring to the Las Vegas premiere of Men Of The Strip. And, if that name doesn’t ring a bell, you must have missed our coverage here. And, here. And here, too. Yes, we’ve been following the show for awhile and now we can answer whether it was worth the hype.

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:

Get ready to go green! We're less than a month from St. Patrick's Day on Monday, March 17, and to say Vegas will be rocking would be an understatement. Cheap whiskey and green beer will be on the menu and most specials run not just on Monday, but throughout the entire weekend leading up to the official day.
We've compiled a list of special events already announced, but be sure to check back, though, as we will update it as more are announced.
New York-New York's annual Celtic Feis festival will take place March 15-17 and will features Irish bites from Nine Fine Irishmen, celebratory cocktails and live entertainment. The event is complimentary and open to guests 21 and over. Libations will include $10 cocktails, $7 domestic beers, $8 import beer and $7 shots.

Mandalay Bay's old, depressing food court -- in style as well as selection -- is officially no more.
A renovated court, with all new brands and decor, made its Vegas debut Monday. Guests looking for a quick bite can now choose from Nathan's Famous, Johnny Rockets and Bonanno's New York Pizzeria. Two more eateries, a Subway and a Pan Asian Express, were still concealed behind a construction wall at the time of our visit.

A VegasChatter fan dropped us a line earlier today to let us know those rumors about a new Border Grill location in Vegas are true. More specifically, those rumors about Border Grill coming to Caesars Palace. Our tipster discovered, while enjoying a cool marg, that the Caesars location should open...

It's time for the fourth annual VegasChatter Awards! Today, we begin to bring you the best and worst of the year. All of our picks are based on what we've personally experienced in Vegas over 2013 -- the good, the bad, and the mind-boggling.
In 2013, Vegas kept us quite entertained. Sometimes better than others. The year came in with a bang for The Quad, brought a vault full of rock to LVH, gave us some Boyz who wanted to hold us tight at The Mirage, brought an epic journey with Loberace, saw a Pin Up with potential at the Strat, had us hearing voices at Bally's, and made us feel awful for Broadway at the Four Queens, among many, many other entertainment experiences. But which new show was the best for 2013? And, which keeps knocking our sock puppets off? Here are our picks:

Remember the last time you dined at Mandalay Bay's food court? We're getting a blank stare, aren't we? In fact, some of you are probably thinking, "Mandalay Bay has a food court?"
Located next to Shark Reef Aquarium and fronting some of the resort's convention space, Mandalay Bay's food court has been uninspiring and, let's face it, unappetizing, for some time now. But, our interest was perked when the space was shutdown for remodeling earlier this year and Fifth Avenue Restaurant Group (responsible for the new food court at Bally's and the revamp at Luxor, among others) took the helm.
As someone posted on their Facebook page, "when the hell did this happen?"
This writer was just as astonished when she visited the Fashion Show Mall last week and saw a storefront for LUSH inside. The British brand is known for "fresh, handmade cosmetics," as the tagline goes, but had only offered its wares inside Mandalay Bay for years.

While we've got our suspicions about this property actually happening thanks to the dubious history of Delano's parent company Morgans Hotel Group, however -- according to MGM Resorts -- the Delano will open sometime next September or October. That's nearly a year later from the initial opening date set for the hotel.
