Craft Beer, Music And Rockin' Fashions At SLS

Where: 2535 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109

There are few things that sound as great as the combination of beer and music, at least to this guy. The Vegas Beer and Music Festival combines both and adds a rock n' roll fashion show April 3 at SLS Las Vegas (formerly the Sahara).

The event will bring together more than 50 craft breweries from Las Vegas and southern California, including Banger Brewing, New Belgium and Stone Brewing. The music portion of the festival will include performances by Falling Doves and Dan Fester. The fashion show is hosted by Romantic Rock. You can see a sample of the show here. (Click if like rock chicks in bikinis.)

Stratosphere Offering Parking (For A Fee) During Rock In Rio

Where: 2000 Las Vegas Blvd. South [map], 89104

Rock in Rio cometh...

Rock in Rio is expected to bring in tens of thousands of concertgoers to MGM Resorts' City of Rock at the north end of the Strip (across from SLS) during two weekends in May (8-9, 15-16).

While the event will feature big-name performers, it lacks at least one thing: parking on site. There will be zero parking at the festival grounds so attendees -- anticipated to be upwards of 50,000 to 85,000 a day -- will have to hoof it or opt for the monorail, shuttles or cabs. Stratosphere, however, is offering up another option, as first reported by the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

A Legend Of Zelda Concert Is Coming To The Strip

Where: 3355 Las Vegas Blvd. South [map], 89109

Yes, you read that correctly. There is a Nintendo Legend of Zelda symphony concert series that will be touring the world all year and it will be making a stop in Las Vegas June 10 at Venetian.

The tour, entitled Symphony of the Goddess - Master Quest, celebrates the 28-year-old video game franchise. This sounds both nerdy and quite interesting, at the same time. During the production, The Las Vegas Philharmonic will perform orchestral arrangements of music from a variety of games from The Legend of Zelda universe. There will also be video content from the classic game, as well as the most recent addition to the series, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds (which is available for Nintendo 3DS).

Frankie Moreno Doesn't Need To Be 'Just A Memory'

February 20, 2015 at 11:44 AM | by | Comments (0)

The memory of which we speak.

If you missed his Dancing with Stars appearance a few seasons ago, are a fan that misses his recently completed residency at the Stratosphere or have missed the Las Vegas orig altogether, Frankie Moreno will once again lather that Tangerine in Honey next month.

The singer isn't yet headlining another Strip resort, but he is taking over two different venues that are bound to immerse audience in his high-energy style.

You Can Now Jump The Line At Brooklyn Bowl Without Getting Into Trouble

Where: 3545 Las Vegas Blvd. S. [map], 89109

At The LINQ, Brooklyn Bowl has just launched a great new program called Double Jump for guests who want to receive preferential access to the concerts at their venue.

The idea is simple: guests who dine at Brooklyn Bowl's Blue Ribbon restaurant can now "jump" to the front of the concert line afterwards. They just need to show their receipt to security and they will be allowed entry into the concert area ahead of the general public. We wonder how long until other venues copy this concept.

Le Reve's Drummer Has Never Missed A Beat

Where: 3131 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109

Unlike sculptures and other works of art, live productions are organic creations. They grow and evolve over time. This is especially true inside the showrooms at Wynn Las Vegas.

The Broadway-themed ShowStoppers has promised a frequently changing experience and the aquatic Le Reve - The Dream has been especially fluid (we’re so punny) throughout its lengthy run. As much as this self-proclaimed Le Reve junkie (26 times and counting) would like to boast about having seen it all, those bragging rights belong firmly to the show's drummer, Jean Ainsley.

Check-Out Folio: Life To Be Beautiful Again, The Sound Of Music In Primm, And More

There's a lot of sh*t that happens in Vegas and not all of it can make it on our site. So, every Friday, we take note of some of the smaller announcements around town that may be of interest, too. Here's the rundown for the week of February 2:

Love is in the air at the Titanic Exhibit: Just in time for Valentine's Day, a cherub sculpture is on display at Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition inside Luxor. The rare artifact will be on display through February 28. While there were many cherub statues on the ship, this bronze is the only one to have been recovered. It is suspected that this specific piece was part of a light fixture on one of the staircases. The exhibit is open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily and tickets are $32 ($29 with local ID).

Rock In Rio Begins Selling Shuttle, Monorail Passes

January 30, 2015 at 3:12 PM | by | Comment (1)

Not Rock in Rio Vegas, but still Rock in Rio.

With no on-site parking and nearby garages at SLS Las Vegas, Circus Circus, Stratosphere and Riviera likely to already be packed by guests, the majority of Rock in Rio ticket holders will need to consider public transportation options before they rock out on the north Strip.
