If you missed The Roots at Brooklyn Bowl before, you have no excuse this time. Youíve been warned. They put on a heck of a show and though itís hard to explain if you havenít experienced it, they just feel like Brooklyn Bowl. They feel like they should be on that stage. Jimmy Fallon should move his show to Vegas so they can be our house band at the same time.

Youíll have your shot to see what we mean over New Yearís Eve at The Roots Legendary New Yearís Eve Ball. Doors open and 8 p.m. and the band takes the stage at 9 p.m. If past shows are any indication, they should be good for a decently long performance.

This Could Be The Cheapest Way To Spend New Year's Eve On The Strip

November 18, 2014 at 1:35 PM | by | Comments (0)

First, yes, we know. The cheapest way to spend New Year's Eve on the Strip would be milling with the masses for free on Las Vegas Boulevard. But, what's the fun in that? For twenty bucks, you could still spend it outdoors and still ooh, ahh at fireworks come midnight, but be high above it all... ice skating.

The Cosmopolitan is just a few days away from transforming its Boulevard Pool into The Ice Rink and you can ring in the New Year there for $20 if you buy tickets early (i.e., now). At some point, admission will creep up to $30. If you'd still prefer free and were planning to book a room in Vegas, anyway, hotel guests will receive complimentary entry.

Would You Spend NYE On A Motionless High Roller?

If you havenít been on The High Roller yet, perhaps you were just waiting for a special occasion. New Yearís Eve, one of the busiest nights on the Las Vegas Strip, is probably not that special occasion you were waiting for; but, if you're up for braving the traffic (or are already planning to stay on or near the Strip), Caesars Entertainment has rolled out some interesting NYE options for revelers who want to celebrate high in the sky.

Three different packages (starting at $2,500, all inclusive) will offer a stationary view of the midnight fireworks from the observation wheel. A limited number of the High Rollerís cabins (basically the upper half) will be loaded with partiers and then the wheel will remain stationary as we tick over into the New Year. An average ride on the High Roller takes about 30 minutes, but this experience will last longer, making the full revolution plus another 30 minutes of fireworks viewing.

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.)

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 Yearís Eve pairing? Lady Gaga will share the stage with Tony Bennett at Cosmopolitan's Chelsea venue. Itís not the first time the duo has paired up, but it still seems a little odd, to this writer at least. Perhaps itís ďjust the right amount of wrong.Ē

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.
