It's one of the more popular ways to ring in the New Year -- Strip-side on New York-New York's Brooklyn Bridge. But, it appears that on-going construction on the hotel-casino's facade may have folks searching for a new party spot.
When it debuts December 27, Beacher's Madhouse will only be half a whole, though. Its nightclub will jump off that evening, but Beacher's Madhouse The Show won't take the stage until January 17.

If you're planning to spend the final days of '13 in Vegas, but don't have a room yet. We salute your bravery. Or, Black Card. Here's how rates are looking two months out*. Since NYE falls on a Tuesday this year (boo), we're including weekend rates as well.
*Rates are for standard rooms, do not include tax or resort fees and, as always, are subject to change based on demand. Also, some resorts may require a multiple night stay before allowing a New Year's Eve reservation. Inquire with the resort you're interested to see if any strings are attached.
We know, we know. It's not even past the Fourth, Labor Day or even Halloween yet, and we're already thinking New Year's Eve. But, with the halfway mark just a few days away and a myriad of new openings expected to occur up and down The Strip just before year's end (think The Linq and MGM's promenade) maybe it's not too bad of an idea to start thinking about a room now.
Here's how rates stand on June 27. But, remember, pricing can fluctuate. If you see something you like, visit the hotel's website directly to confirm the going rate. Also, resort fees are not included in the prices cited below.
We said earlier in December that you were running out of time and now you're downright up against the wall. While many hotels are sold out or high-priced, such as the Rio and the Hard Rock, you can still find a room out there if you want to make a last minute New Year's trek to Vegas.
We know that The Strip is packed, but what about the surrounding blocks? Here's a look at what's left at some of the more popular places off-Strip which we think are good options for those just looking for a crash pad. Gold Coast and Orleans are essentially steals given the time of year, and reduced rates on the 1st take some of the sting out of stays at places like the Hard Rock or the Palms.

In what will certainly be the site of one of the largest displays of public affection in the nation, Vegas will be packed come midnight on New Year's Eve. Times Square might draw a denser crowd, but the Strip will be one of the best places to be as we ring in 2013 with seven simultaneous firework displays.
Where are they this year? It's pretty much deja-vu from 2011. They'll be shooting off from the rooftops of the Stratosphere, Treasure Island, the Venetian, Caesars Palace, Planet Hollywood, Aria, and MGM Grand. Setting up shop outside CityCenter on Las Vegas Boulevard should give you views of the displays at Aria, Planet Hollywoood, and MGM Grand. Hang around The Mirage to see fireworks from Treasure Island, the Venetian, and Caesars.

Krave Massive will bring the party to downtown for the first time on New Year's Eve, but what's being billed as the world's largest gay club will only be ready to party for one night only. It will hold a NYE bash in its movie theater turned ballroom (and is still selling tickets if you're interested), but will head to the Rio in January "for a limited time" while construction continues.
We made it through another apocalypse, everybody! We're going to celebrate by getting off Facebook... err, we mean, packing it in at work.. hitting a few Fremont Street bars because you know how we love us some drinking, umm, downtown Vegas and then having one amazing four-day holiday weekend.
We hope you have an amazing time as well filled with love and laughter. If you're still trying to figure out what to do in Vegas for the holidays, either Christmas or New Year's Eve, just check out our links below, in handy bullet point format. We'll see you back here on Wednesday!
Terrible's is hosting its second annual Rock the Rooftop New Year's Eve 'soiree' on December 31. We didn't know about the first, but when we heard about this one, we were a bit skeptical of the view. Until we saw the photos. From the views shown above and below, you can see that Terrible's actually offers a pretty terrific view of the Las Vegas Strip skyline, and the fireworks display set to ring in the New Year.

Yesterday, we took you through what it would cost to get a semi-last minute standard room at various Vegas hotels on New Year's Eve, but we know you've got more flash in you than two beds and a sink.
New Year's Eve rates at Circus Circus ($478) might incite a raise of an eyebrow so how about a one-bedroom balcony suite for two nights at Signature for a few dollars more? Given that rates for the 1st of January always drop way low, you can easily come out on top if you play your cards right. Time is running out to get creative, but here are a couple sweet suites that are still available:
We're just under three weeks from New Year's Eve, but hotels still have room for those who wish to ring in 2013 under the bright lights of Vegas. (Except for New York-New York, they're now sold out on the 31st. The Cosmopolitan's standard rooms, which had required a three-night stay, are sold out, too.) Most Vegas hotels are requiring at least a two-night stay to ensure a room on the city's biggest night. Some require booking both the 30th and 31st while others allow you to stay the 1st as your second night, which is significantly cheaper across the board. In some cases, staying the nights of the 31st and the 1st can save you almost $200 (which is the case for Bally's).
Here's the breakdown on the policies and prices of some randomly selected Vegas hotels. And, don't forget to check out our Ultimate Guide to New Year's Eve once you get a room!
