We toured Brooklyn Bowl at The Linq over the weekend and came away with a fantastic first impression. Inside, construction workers were hustling to ensure it would be ready for its first concert set for March 8. While there was still a lot to do, the layout was essentially set minus final touches, fixtures and finishes.
No pictures were allowed on our
site tour. With sawdust flying, they wouldn’t have come out so good, anyhow. We can tell you about what we saw, though. First, Brooklyn Bowl is huge. As previously noted it will be 77,000 square feet on two levels. Each space inside Brooklyn Bowl is currently shelled out. The 32 bowling lanes are split between two levels which are both open to a 2,000-capacity concert venue. (For perspective, the original Brooklyn Bowl can hold 800.)
If you reserve one of the first six lanes on the ground floor when there's a concert, you essentially bowl right next to the stage. It's a great vantage point to watch a band perform. When there's a show, those lanes will be rented out for the entirety of the concert. While you might still hear the concert in the mezzanine level, you won't have the same vantage point visually. No mention of how much it would cost to bowl was made on our tour.

You won't find a piano in every Strip resort, but where they are, they thrive. And, while piano bars may not receive marquee billing on Las Vegas Boulevard, they will at The Linq's BLVD. Cocktail Company which promises to tickle the ivories daily.

The Smith Center is ready to get a leg up on the Broadway Series to come. The downtown performing arts center has announced its full schedule of shows set to begin August 2014 and continue through May 2014 and we're, once again, geeked out about it.
This season will bring nine productions to Downtown Vegas, ranging from the touring debut of Kinky Boots to the return of Wicked. Tickets will be available to season subscribers beginning March 3. The general public will be able to purchase new subscriptions beginning May 12. Individual tickets will be announced at a later date.
Here's a complete rundown of what to expect and when as well as video previews from their Broadway counterparts:

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.

Blabbermouth pins May 21 through June 7 as the exact dates of a second GnR residency. Tickets go on sale this Friday, February 21 at 10 a.m. The information is confirmed on the Hard Rock's website via this embedded tweet which, strangely, can't be seen on Twitter.

With its first concert less than a month away, Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas is almost ready to
impress bowl us over at The Linq. Things are coming together so quickly that reps hope to receive a TCO (Temporary Certificate of Occupancy) by week's end, meaning construction is nearly complete.
One of the folks charged with making Brooklyn Bowl a reality on The Strip, David Pray, has been tweeting tantalizing peeks inside (and outside) the bowling alley-slash-restaurant-slash-concert venue for several weeks now. UPDATE: Brooklyn Bowl has decided no pics for you! All the tweets were deleted after our post. Thanks to Matt Brown for the heads up.

A few weeks ago, we filled you in on a scoop that the group would be rockin' out in Britney's showroom this March, possibly as a mini-residency. Tool now lists a stop in Vegas on their website, however, it's only for one night -- March 15. We're still really pumped about even that, though. The band will swing by Vegas after playing Fresno the night before. They'll head to San Diego the night after. And, who knows, maybe they'll come back this way again.

The all-new Tropicana will be able to hang onto that distinction a bit longer. An old favorite will dance its way back into the limelight when Mamma Mia! headlines the Trop's renovated theater beginning this May.
The much loved Broadway show closed at Mandalay Bay in 2009 after a six-year run. Tickets for its return are now on sale with performances beginning May 8 at the Trop.
The singer-actress will be the latest name from the past to headline the Vegas Strip. And, we would have had much more fun with that line if the press release hasn't already gone there:
Get ready for some summer lovin’ and “have a blast” as Olivia Newton-John makes her way to Flamingo Las Vegas with her “Summer Nights” residency. Opening inside the Donny & Marie Showroom on Tuesday, April 8, the beloved internationally-renowned singer-actress will take audiences on a musical journey through her life in film and music.

Back in December, Guns N' Roses fan site MyGnrForum reported on rumors that the band was planning a follow-up to their successful 2012 Vegas residency at the Hard Rock. A few days ago, the Guns N' Roses Facebook page started teasing confirmation of a Spring 2014 return via pics of poster and billboard announcements.
As instructed, we've texted 'GNR' to 97580, but haven't received any details yet on what the spring will bring. Unfortunately, that's all we gots for now. So, while we know where
you are and sort of when, the how long and exactly has yet to be released to a jungle of fans.

Part bowling alley, part concert venue, part restaurant, Brooklyn Bowl is almost ready to rock Las Vegas. A March opening at The Linq is still on track and its opening lineup is not only rockin' but jam-packed.
Ch-ch-check it out:
Screenings of Casablanca will be shown on Valentine's weekend at The Smith Center, but it's not the plot of the movie that will have hearts pounding -- it's the fact that the musical score will be performed live by an orchestra.
The Las Vegas Philharmonic, South Nevada's only professional symphony orchestra, is about to make two things happen simultaneously: A classic film appear even more classic, and make a holiday all about love even more romantic.
