Where: 3950 Las Vegas Blvd. S. [map], 89109
October 6, 2014 at 8:20 PM | by | Comments (5)

Snoop at TAO, Tony and Gaga at Cosmo and Adam at Mandalay. New Year's Eve in Vegas will, once again, require a Magic 8 ball when it comes to deciding whether you should grab tickets for a specific event now, or wait to see what else is in store.

This afternoon it was announced that Maroon 5 will ring in 2015 with not one, but two concerts at Mandalay Bay on Tuesday, December 30 and Wednesday, December 31. Tickets go on sale this Saturday, October 11 at 10 a.m. PT and range from $99.50 to $224.50 (tax and fees, of course, not included.) M Life members will be able to snatch up their tickets before anyone else with a pre-sale running Wednesday, October 8 at 10 a.m. til Friday, October 10 at 10 p.m.

Tony Bennett And Lady Gaga: Cheek-To-Cheek At Cosmo This NYE

Where: 3708 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109

Is it a Bad Romance or the perfect New Year’s Eve pairing? Lady Gaga will share the stage with Tony Bennett at Cosmopolitan's Chelsea venue. It’s not the first time the duo has paired up, but it still seems a little odd, to this writer at least. Perhaps it’s “just the right amount of wrong.”

This announcement is hot on the heels of the release of the duo's new album, Cheek to Cheek. Tony might want to be careful about getting cheek-to-cheek with Mother Monster as her costumes often have sharp spikes. Wonder what Lady Gaga will be sporting on NYE: classy or campy?

Hey, Hey, Hey, What Rhymes With Here's Where To Watch Fireworks In Vegas On New Year's Eve?

December 27, 2013 at 5:40 PM | by | Comment (1)

It's a question we're asked every December and, we get it, it's an important one -- where can we see fireworks on New Year's Eve? Just standing on The Strip is a good idea, but where is an important factor, especially with towering resorts all around.

This year, just like the past two, fireworks will launch from the rooftops of seven resorts: Stratosphere, Treasure Island, the Venetian, Caesars Palace, Planet Hollywood, Aria, and MGM Grand. The entire production will last eight minutes and 23 seconds.

Need A Room For New Year's Eve? Here's How Rates Look Now

December 5, 2013 at 7:11 PM | by | Comment (1)

If you haven't booked that room for New Year's Eve yet, your options are either rising in price or dwindling in availability. Hotels are beginning to sell out for the night of December 31 (or, are requiring a multi-night reservation first). Here's a rundown of the current rates*, which are fluctuating by the day. There are still some good deals out there if you're not too picky about where you crash.

*Rates are for standard rooms, do not include tax or resort fees and, as always, are subject to change based on demand. Also, as mentioned 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.

Will Construction Sideline New York-New York's NYE Bridge Bash?

Where: 89109

The view from here, yesterday.

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.

Rumored opening dates have come and gone, but it seems like New Year's Eve weekend will finally see the arrival of Beacher's Madhouse to MGM Grand.

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.

Haven't Booked A Room For New Year's Eve Yet? Here's What It Will Cost

October 29, 2013 at 11:47 PM | by | Comments (6)

Sure, Halloween still hasn't happened yet, but that hasn't stopped Vegas from already crafting events for Thanksgiving and Christmas. And, yep, New Year's Eve, too. (More on that soon.)

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.

An Early Bird Look At New Year's Eve Rates

June 27, 2013 at 11:41 PM | by | Comments (2)

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.

New Year's Eve Rates For Party People Who Are Also Procrastinators

December 27, 2012 at 12:50 PM | by | Comment (1)

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.

Where Are The Fireworks, You Ask?

December 26, 2012 at 2:45 PM | by | Comment (1)

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.
