A lot of sh*t comes and goes in Las Vegas and some of it actually sticks. Since the flow of updates can come fast and furious, each month we'll point out Sh*t You May Have Missed as an easy way to keep score of what's new, who's coming soon, which doors may have closed and what you better catch now before it's gone forever.

Hakkasan North will be here before we know it.
Okay, that's not really the new name of the club destined to replace PURE at Caesars Palace (that we know of), but it's now our designated placeholder. While still nameless (or, at the very least, still unannounced), the mega-club will be a sister to Hakkasan at MGM Grand. An extensive renovation of the space includes an expansion into the resort's old poker room.

We'll have to wait a tad longer to see what singer and dancer Eric Jordan Young’s got “Shakin’” in the Sin City Theater at Planet Hollywood. Young’s new show has been pushed back a week to get all the details finalized. It will now open Saturday, October 4.
The former Vegas! The Show standout will now have his own show. Expect a live band and modern renditions of popular pop, rock, funk, R&B and jazz songs as Young puts his own spin on classic hits with the help of other Broadway-caliber co-directors and technical crew.

Remember those restaurant rumblings coming out of Bellagio in April? One is finally coming to fruition. Circo closed over the weekend to make way for Lago, a new concept by Julian Serrano (behind Picasso at Bellagio and Serrano at Aria.)
Just beyond the shadow of the Welcome to Las Vegas sign, a massive Harley-Davidson has been not-so-quietly taking shape. On Thursday, October 2, it will open its doors.
This week's debut of Harley's Strip location means the closure of the off-Strip locale at Eastern and Sahara. The new shop spans some 55,000 square feet and will handle both sales and rentals and feature retail, too. The Associated Press reports visitors will also be able to avail themselves of a snack bar with free WiFi and that they're welcome to juice up their devices, too. There is no crosswalk from the Welcome sign to Harley so please don't try to beat the traffic.

How do you say “Yo, cuz!” in French? South Philly’s Steve Martorano and his amusing tagline now can be found on the Las Vegas Strip with the newest outpost of Martorano’s at Paris Las Vegas. The restaurant first established itself at Rio and now makes the move to another Caesars Entertainment property.
When one thinks Paris, French-inspired restaurants like Burger Brasserie and Mon Ami Gabi may come to mind before Italian food does but this new restaurant, which opened over the weekend, should still be a welcome addition to the hotel’s dining scene.

The Boulder Strip hotel-casino has had an RV park of its own, but will now lease it to Kampgrounds of America. The park will boast the new, search engine-friendly name of Las Vegas KOA at Sam's Town. The partnership brings KOA full circle in Vegas as its first location was on Boulder Highway back in the 70s. A press release details what lovers of the open road will find at its new locale:

Getting crazy in Vegas is great while you’re doing it, but when you get back to the "real world"? Not so much. We’ve walked past those oxygen bars and haven’t needed to schedule a visit from Hangover Heaven or hop a ride on the Hangover Bus... yet. While this VegasChatter writer generally leans towards the healthier side of Vegas fun, I've been known to party hearty, too; so, I was definitely interested when invited to check out the remedies offered at Juice NV.
Located just a little southeast of McCarran Airport off I-215, Juice NV takes a natural approach to recovery, turning local produce into bottles of power-packed nutrition. Chef Jermaine Jonas opened the concept this summer and calls it Las Vegas' first "urban farm stand." He used the wild lifestyle of Las Vegas as an inspiration for creating a menu of refreshers, super foods and plant-based drinks designed to fuel people on an extreme Sin City schedule.

A new retail store is planned for McCarran Airport's D gates. There's no announced timeline as of yet, but we're told the "grab-n-go" location will cover 700-square feet and will offer those signature Couture Pops as well as candy, popcorn, nuts, Vegas souvenirs and ice cream.

Those in search of good 'cue in Vegas usually head off Las Vegas Boulevard to find it. But now, you may just need to travel south of Mandalay Bay.
Pot Liquor, which calls itself a "contemporary American smokehouse" or CAS for short, is now open in Town Square. A press release explains that "pot liquor" is a reference to "the rich, savory broth that remains in the pot after collard, turnip or mustard greens are boiled together with smoked meats, bones or salt pork."

Harrah's says it's not a food court, but if it looks like a food court and serves like a food court...
The round-the-clock Fulton Street Food Hall -- termed as a marketplace and to-go cafe by execs and being hailed as a Strip first -- has been described, to us at least, as something akin to what you'd find in a Whole Foods as far as quality and set-up. Guests order what they wish from a range of options and stations and then head to one central register (for the most part) to check-out. Think of it as upscale fast-casual, if you will. However you reference it, the dining experience is now open to all.

Raiding the Rock Vault has seen its ups and downs at
LVH Westgate. Las Vegas Sun’s John Katsilometes has followed the saga as one of the show’s creators, Asia frontman and bassist John Payne, was given the glam rock boot this summer by fellow Raiding the Rock Vault producer Harry Cowell. Other performers have come and gone over the show’s run. Of course, many of them were only contracted for short stints, but several of the more longstanding performers have had their contracts come to early ends.
Tonight will be the last performance of Raiding the Rock Vault, according to Westgate hotel officials. If you’re unfamiliar with the show, it’s a literal rock of ages, as in it takes guests through a rock’n’roll odyssey with a sampling of hits from the various eras. All the music is performed live by musicians and singers who used to make up the likes of bands such as Bon Jovi, the aforementioned Asia, LA Guns, The Offspring, Heat, Deep Purple, Quiet Riot, and many others. You might think it’s like a pre-retirement home for washed-up rockers, but this writer didn’t find that to be true. I’ve seen the show several times and was always impressed by the level of musicianship. The odd storyline the show struggled to incorporate seemed a little cumbersome, but the music was great. I’ll probably see it again at its new home at Tropicana where it begins November 1.
