Where: 3000 Paradise Road [map], 89109

Among the many reinventions and renovations that have been going down since Westgate bought the off Strip LVH, the hotel's former High Roller room -- likely one of the more underused in town -- has been converted to a 24-hour cafe.

The Strip's About To Get Lit Up In A Fancy Way

Where: 3645 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109

Ballyís couldnít let The High Roller have all the glory as a colorful addition to the Vegas skyline. The hotel's Grand Bazaar Shops will sport a sparkly attraction of its own. The outdoor mall was initially scheduled to open this month, but you should now expect a February debut.

The already ridiculously colorful project is upping its visibility game even more with the addition of a Swarovski crystal starburst. Last Friday, the sparkly structure was delivered and installed. The structure is 14 feet in diameter and was a collaboration between Swarovski and The Young Electric Sign Company, better known as YESCO.

Still not at full capacity, The Linq shopping promenade will at least fill in two more storefronts in the next few days.

We hear flip flop shop, Havaianas, will open this Friday, December 19. It will be located between Bella Scarpa and BLVD Cocktail Company.

MJ Live, Rat Pack Is Back To Find New Home On Strip

They've become off-Strip mainstays, now two Vegas productions are trading one "R" named resort for another.

MJ Live and Rat Pack Is Back will see their final shows at the Rio on February 22. Word has it they're being booted for that Duck Dynasty musical. (Hoping you cringed when you read that as much as I did when I wrote it.) Both shows won't disappear from the entertainment landscape, though; a change of scenery will place them at the Riviera beginning March 2.

White Castle Begins Hiring For Las Vegas Location

December 15, 2014 at 1:33 PM | by | Comments (7)

We still don't know when White Castle will debut at Casino Royale, but we do know it's getting closer.

The fast food chain known for its sliders posted a hiring call a few days ago. Interested applicants are being told to head to 3440 West Russell Road between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. Monday through Friday to make their cravings known, no experience necessary. Here's where we should make some sort of reference to simply having a hunger for the job.

The Strip To Be Gifted With Smashburger This Month

Where: 3570 Las Vegas Blvd. South [map], 89109
December 10, 2014 at 8:24 PM | by | Comments (5)

Perhaps Smashburger can get a Hulk busker to help promote the opening of its new store at Caesars Palace. A Hulk Smashburger sounds like a natural menu item for the ever-expanding burger chain. They usually have a "celebrity smasher" for their openings and a busker would definitely fit in on The Strip. Smashburger will set up shop in the new food court at Caesars, its ninth Vegas location and first on the Strip.

If you havenít had Smashburger yet, youíre missing out. No itís not quite on the level of Burger Bar at Mandalay Bay or the sorely missed LBS at Red Rock, but itís about half the price and really quite tasty. Donít lump it in with other fast food burger joints because itís far better, at least in this burger loverís opinion.

Wyndham Desert Blue Targeting Spring Debut

December 10, 2014 at 6:21 PM | by | Comments (3)

This looks a lot more amazing than what you see from the freeway.

Just off the Strip, a lone timeshare tower stands silent. Its name shrouded from view. Its opening unknown. At least, until now.

Major construction work has appeared to be complete for some time now for the long-delayed Wyndham Desert Blue project to the north of Rio. The stalled timeshare was originally due to open in early 2010, but construction came to a halt before that happened, leaving 90 percent of the project unfinished. Its skeleton sat dormant for years before VegasChatter fan Kaywood H. noticed work was once again underway in April 2013.

So, It Sounds Like Bally's Grand Bazaar Shops Aren't Opening This Month

Where: 89109

While on-site signage still cite a debut of fall, a newly created Facebook page for the forthcoming Grand Bazaar Shops at Bally's now places its arrival as this winter.

Facebook'er Angela S. asked Grand Bazaar's page for an opening timeline on December 2. Yesterday, a response pushed back its arrival about two months:

A Sneak Peek At Shake Shack, Tom's Urban Coming Soon To Strip

New York-New York is working hard to gift us with two new dining experiences before year's end. Shake Shack, a popular burger and milkshake brand, and Tom's Urban, self-described as a "modern and casual dining concept," have both been tapped for December openings.

We peeked in on the progress of both eateries on Friday and found that while the interiors are still just shells, the exteriors of each are quickly approaching completion. Here's the rendering of a finished Tom's Urban:

At Casino Royale, A Reopened Denny's Already Turning Away Guests

Where: 89109
November 21, 2014 at 8:01 PM | by | Comments (10)

Dat fork, tho.

"We're sorry, but we're not currently seating guests right now."

On its second day of business, the renovated and newly reopened Denny's at Casino Royale welcomed us by politely informing us that an overloaded kitchen meant no new guests were currently being accepted. That was around 2:30 p.m. Friday afternoon. A nearby bench, however, was filled with customers of a more patient nature who must have chosen to wait it out. A walk into the diner's interior revealed a large number of open tables so, hopefully, the kitchen will start cooking with gas, so to speak (couldn't help it), soon.

At Red Rock Resort, 8 Noodle Bar Opening Soon

When it's 59 degrees as a high in Vegas, news that a new noodle bar is close to debuting is enough to send us to our happy place. (The same for cars equipped with seat warmers. #ThatDesertLife)

Next month, Red Rock Resort will unveil 8 Noodle Bar and already has us with talk of "thick, rich broths." And, "affordable." And, "speedy." What can we say? We're easy. To please, people.
