Take That, Topgolf: Caesars Entertainment Seeks Hole-In-One, Too

April 1, 2015 at 5:11 PM | by | Comments (7)

Yes, it's billions in debt and going through bankruptcy, but you know what they say, you got to spend money to make money. So, Caesars Entertainment is answering MGM Resorts' plans for a just-off-the-Strip Topgolf location by teeing up a golf concept of its own. Mini-golf, that is.

The land behind The High Roller is used for parking right now, but has always been earmarked for expansion of The Linq promenade concept. Now, thanks to a tipster who leaked these renderings to us, the gaming company has apparently committed to a course of action (with an emphasis on "course") -- The Linqs, a family friendly mini-golf experience.

How To Make Mother's Day A Night, Erm, Day To Remember

Where: 3000 Paradise Rd. [map], 89109
March 30, 2015 at 3:08 PM | by | Comment (1)

While it’s not as awkward as STK’s MILF Mother’s Day promotion (Mom I’d Like to Filet Mignon), Westgate is inviting you to take your mom to the ultimate baby-making concert. Perhaps an odd choice, but hey, mom could probably go for some classic R&B from the likes of Shalamar’s Howard Hewett.

With 10 million records sold, Hewett’s solo hits and songs with Shalamar were prominent on the ‘80s and ’90s airwaves. Expect to hear hits like "I'm For Real" and "Once, Twice, Three Times."

Off Strip Dining: Andiron Steak & Sea

Where: 1720 Festival Plaza Drive [map], 89135
March 27, 2015 at 10:35 PM | by | Comments (0)

Andiron Steak & Sea is the latest restaurant in the Blau Associates takeover of Las Vegas suburb, Summerlin, which has already brought the area dining destinations, Honey Salt and MADE L.V.

Quite possibly the defining restaurant for the whole of Downtown Summerlin (the mall south of Red Rock Resort which opened last year), newly opened Andiron sets out for a lofty goal, but does so with a heavy measure of grace.

Las Vegas has seen celebrity residencies, restaurants, hotels and even salons. But, aside from Nobu hotel and restaurant, big names rarely venture outside of their small ponds, sticking to the discipline they know best. In May, that will change when Suzanne Somers, best known for her ditzy role as Chrissy on Three's Company, launches a residency at Westgate. And, opens a spa there. And, debuts a cafe, too.

Pizza Rock Still Rockin' With New Green Valley Ranch Locale

Where: 2300 Paseo Verde Parkway [map], 89052

The Old Chicago with sausage and meatballs.

Green Valley Ranch is a whole lot tastier. Off Strip mainstay Hank’s got a new friend in the reliably good food category as downtown favorite Pizza Rock expands to add a GVR outpost. Award-winning pizza chef Tony Gemignani said he tailored the menu a bit for the suburban crowd, but kept most of the favorites. He also retained the semi truck in the middle of the restaurant, like its sister location in downtown Vegas, only this one makes a little more sense as it has the entire truck cab and trailer, fully stocked with beer boxes.

Dining Changes Rumored For Gold Coast

Where: 4000 West Flamingo Road [map], 89103
March 16, 2015 at 3:59 PM | by | Comments (9)

If the whispers are true, Gold Coast's dining scene could be in for a major shakeup.

We hear the off-Strip casino's sole fine dining experience, the Cortez Room, could be closed this year to make way for a rebranding. Word on the street is that the Ports o' Call Buffet is also slated for a closure and that it would be replaced with a 24-hour cafe concept similar to Courtyard Cafe at sister casino, The Orleans. After (barely) surviving a five-night run at the $10 buffet a few years back, we won't be sad to hear that ship has finally sailed.

We reached out to parent company Boyd Gaming for comment. A rep relayed that they didn't have anything to share at the moment, but have a lot planned for their Vegas properties this year.

Open Bar Options On And Off The Strip

March 16, 2015 at 3:05 PM | by | Comments (8)

Drinks from Double Barrel Roadhouse.

VegasChatter Twitter follower @wclsc59 recently asked us about the best Vegas venues for open bar options. If you’re aiming to drink for an extended period of time, the standard $12-$14 cocktails at many bars will add up quick. Many open bar options will be more budget friendly, but remember, just because your wallet can handle it, doesn’t mean your liver can!

If you’re in the ‘burbs out at Red Rock's Mercadito (or can get there), brunch comes with a two-hour open bar featuring cocktails, wine or beer plus three brunch items to share. It’s $38.50 per guest and includes standard brunch drinks like margaritas, mimosas, Bloody Marys and a variety of fruity concoctions.
