This Is What You'll Be Eating (And Drinking) When You're Jammin' At Bunkhouse

Where: 124 S. 11th Street [map], 89101
August 19, 2014 at 2:26 PM | by | Comment (1)

With Bunkhouse reopening August 25 in Downtown Vegas after a extensive remodel, much speculation and interest has surrounded the new dining menu of our favorite place for a dependable ruckus. Would it be strictly bar food? Should we expect it to be skimpy?

While the menu was formed by the Downtown Project food and beverage team (the mysterious, formless, defacto shadow government/illuminati of downtown), the kitchen itself will be helmed by former Herbs & Rye chef Robert Henderson. Robert recently left his position -- to which he was credited with really turning the off-Strip bar's food program around -- and, before that, had worked his way up to sous chef at STACK at The Mirage.

Celine Dion Cancels All Performances Through March 2015

Where: 3570 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109

After a spate of recently cancelled performances, Las Vegas' long-reining lady of song, Celine Dion, has officially struck all performances from her schedule; and, not just at Caesars' Colosseum, but everywhere, including an upcoming tour of Asia.

Celine, who has been battling a throat aliment, cites her health as well as her husband's (Rene Angelil had a cancerous tumor removed last year) as impetus for the move. A press release states she will "postpone all her show business activities indefinitely, in order to focus 100% of her attention on her husband Rene, their family and recent health issues." The couple have three young children, aged 13 and three-year-old twins.

Las Vegas Marathoners Should Be Prepared To Drop It Like It's Hot

August 12, 2014 at 2:54 PM | by | Comments (0)

The Rock 'n' Roll Marathon will be smokin' this year with the just announced addition of Snoop Dogg -- or is it still Snoop Lion? -- as its headlining act. (Yes, we went there.) This year's race weekend is set for November 14-16. Snoop will pump runners up at 3 p.m. that Sunday with a pre-race set. All-American Rejects headlined last year, if you were wondering.

Look Beyond The Big Names At Life Is Beautiful

August 11, 2014 at 3:12 PM | by | Comments (3)

But, always put your hands up.

When Life Is Beautiful announced its lineup earlier this year the big names prevailed. Self-described god Kanye West is, perhaps, the biggest and most polarizing draw, but Outkast’s first Vegas show in years is no small announcement. Other huge acts -- Foo Fighters, Skrillex, and Flaming Lips, among them -- also top off the festival, keeping the bill well-rounded.

With the Downtown Vegas festival quickly approaching (October 24-26), it's important to note there's a lot of talent in the smaller and less well-known acts. Here are the Life Is Beautiful acts not to be missed:

There Is Some Dude With A Sexy Ladder Act At Bally's

Where: 89109
August 5, 2014 at 8:48 PM | by | Comments (4)

Watch out, Recycled Percussion (and Matt Goss from the looks of the headshot above). There's a sexy new ladder-wielding, fedora-wearing performer on the Vegas Strip.

Bally's Indigo Lounge now features Chase Brown every Sunday evening. Who is Chase Brown? We've no idea. His Facebook page says he is "an extremely versatile singer/entertainer who caters to his audience's needs." Those needs apparently include seeing a man belt it out while straddling, gyrating and thrusting on a ladder.

We've already mentioned a few here on Chatter, but have compiled them all together in an at-a-glance format before. The three fests we've yet to mention have been highlighted in blue.

Phish Set To Return To Las Vegas For 2014 Fall Tour

Where: 3799 Las Vegas Blvd. S. [map], 89109
July 22, 2014 at 9:01 AM | by | Comments (0)

<>Update at bottom of post!

It’s been ten years since the iconic, exaltation-inducing Vermont quartet known as Phish last delivered a brain-melting performance in the city of Las Vegas. But as gamblers in this town are keenly aware, all streaks — hot or cold — are inevitably destined to be broken.

In the midst of a 3.0 summer tour confined mainly to the east coast and on the heels of their first studio album release since 2009’s Joy, VegasChatter has learned from a high-ranking source at MGM Grand that Phish are finally ready to return to Sin City for the first time since rocking the Thomas & Mack Center in 2004 with a run of shows at MGM Grand Garden Arena for this fall’s yet-to-be-announced tour.

If You've Never Heard Of Bunkhouse, Here's Why It Should Be On Your Vegas Radar

Where: 124 S. 11th Street [map], 89101
July 21, 2014 at 3:54 PM | by | Comments (5)

In 2009, we hailed it as our favorite place for a dependable ruckus. The Downtown Project’s re-imagination of Downtown Vegas continues with the reopening of Bunkhouse Saloon.

Purchased and closed by Tony Hsieh and company in 2013, the music venue will open again August 25 with a performance from Indie Rock stalwarts, Built To Spill. Heavy remodeling is lengthening the building to allow for a new kitchen serving sloppy joes, deviled eggs and other bar food. Guests will also find a new entrance from Fremont Street and a brand new sound system.

Festivus Maximus: Festival Announcements Are Running Amok In Vegas

July 18, 2014 at 8:52 PM | by | Comments (0)

If Seinfeld’s Festivus didn’t refer to a specific day that’s more or less become an accepted parody holiday, it would surely refer to this third week of July where more Las Vegas festivals were announced than new Weird Al songs.

Almost true. We’ve known about the lineup for late October’s Life is Beautiful Festival for a bit now, but in the past week, details have emerged on two popular returning festival events and one brand new one coming to Sin City this fall.
