A press release went out earlier today setting the dining establishment's debut for March 7. Although, VC fans like Tim G. have known that an opening target date could be found on its website for a few days now. Double Barrel is hailing itself as the first "authentic" roadhouse experience on The Strip (take that, Coyote Ugly):

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.

At Monte Carlo, the Strip-facing facade of Double Barrel Roadhouse continues to slowly take on the appearance of a self-described "old-world rustic barn saloon." From what we hear, a small overnight fire at the construction site earlier this month isn't really impacting a new opening timeline of March. Double Barrel had once hoped to debut before 2013's end.
The construction that's changing most of Monte Carlo's Strip-facing facade is the most obvious, but it's sounding like it's not the only part of the resort currently undergoing big changes.
A few weeks ago, we wondered what the heck was happening on the hotel's 29th floor. We weren't really sure, but it looked like the beginning of one swank renovation project. If you missed our post, here's a photo of a newly remodeled hall sent to us by VegasChatter fan @Stan1958:
The two-story restaurant at the corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Rue de Monte Carlo has been closed and will remain so through December 26 for some improvements of its own, according to VegasChatter Twitter friend @JohnNissan:
We know. Why are we showing this photo if we're talking about Monte Carlo? Well, brace yourself. This is Monte Carlo. World rocked, right? We were pretty flabbergasted, too, when we opened up an email from VegasChatter fan @Stan1958 and found these photos.
On a recent visit to the resort's 29th floor, Stan found a black drape sectioning off about 16 rooms.
Behind it -- and you better believe he peeped! And, took pics! -- he discovered a whole new world... of design.

During its original ten year run, the swashbuckling performance served as one of the greatest examples of the city’s family friendly era. Its more recent rendition, full of scantily-clad women and poorly crafted jokes, could be viewed cynically as a representation of the party pits and 6:5 blackjack payouts that many Strip casinos are now known for. With one of Vegas’ most iconic attractions no longer in action, we thought it an appropriate time to check up on the remaining free Las Vegas Strip shows.

What will $100 million get you these days on The Strip? At New York-New York, a portion of that amount (shared with sister resort Monte Carlo) will get you a revamped facade featuring a Hershey's Chocolate World, Swatch boutique, Stupidiotic and I Love NYNY novelty shops, and a Strip-side 24/7 Starbucks with patio dining. Or, in other words, everything you could possibly need.
You know how to make our eyes light up these days? Send us an email filled with photos and the words "heavy construction." Of course, our preference is for photos like this, but.. oooh, yeah. We can get pretty excited about run-of-the-mill construction, too. (We said, could SLS.)
Our Twitter friend @John_Nissan sent us a note last Wednesday updating the demolition and construction taking place at New York-New York, Monte Carlo and the land in-between the two. Unfortunately, we were
too busy boozing not able to bring you the photos until the today. (For that, we apologize, John!)
As John relayed:
NYNY is still under heavy construction, while MC is slowly starting to tear away chain link fence. The new main entry of the MC is open, but still needs some attention to detail. I assume since they closed the entry area next to Diablo's they needed even a half-finished entry for now. Diablo's is still open. Double Barrel is starting to take shape.

The multi-million dollar project currently transforming New York-New York and Monte Carlo will bring new restaurants, shops and attractions to that part of The Strip beginning this spring. And, when those venues begin to make their debut, New York-New York's Lady Liberty will welcome the masses looking Vegas hot.

The 20,000-seat arena is being built as a partnership between AEG and MGM Resorts. Shovels won't hit the dirt until April 2014, however, the first renderings of the $350 million dollar structure were released today. It will host everything you'd expect a stadium to host, from sports matches and concerts to award productions.

SBE's Double Barrel Roadhouse at Monte Carlo isn't set to open until next year, but they're already posting some renderings of the space to their website. Judging by the fake people shown in them, though, we can't help but wonder why the ladies are single and sad-looking? And, is one of them reading a magazine?
