Drunk In Love With Vegas

March 18, 2014 at 3:30 PM | by | Comments (2)

The grandeur of Vegas can jade people pretty quickly, one thing after another raising the bar and making incredibly cool things seem mundane. But, nothing rekindles appreciation like a long night of drinking. Or, so we've heard. After indulging in a few during a recent bachelor party weekend, this writer found himself intoxicated in with Vegas. Here were a few of my favorite sights:

Go-Go Dancers at Flamingo

Strolling past beautiful women in Vegas is nothing new, but for some reason, I couldn't resist the moving bodies I saw out of the corner of my eye while passing the Flamingo. Like a bug to a light, my shoulders turned, slowly closing the distance and stopping to stand in the entryway, my left shoulder on the edge of the doorway. Careful: Limit staring to five minutes, lest you draw attention from security or, worse, fall in love.

The Soul Patrol will be moving on as Taylor Hicks finishes up his residency at Napoleon's inside Paris this April.

After a successful run at Bally’s, the American Idol champ moved next door to Paris where he has performed since the beginning of the year. Though his residency is ending, fans of the silver-haired crooner will soon have a new album to look forward.

Las Vegas holds a special spot in Hicks’ heart as it was here he first auditioned for American Idol, a move that helped bring him into the mainstream spotlight. As the first Idol winner to secure a Vegas residency, he brought an old-school Southern sound to Sin City.

Sugar Factory Works To Expand Strip-Side Dining

In September, Sugar Factory sought government approval to expand its Strip-side dining at Paris Las Vegas. Now, the work has begun.

VegasChatter's @sammasseur found construction fencing hemming in foot traffic on both sides this morning. Some blockades kept pedestrians away from an area along Las Vegas Boulevard where landscaping was being removed (seen below) while other barriers prevented folks from walking too close to the exterior of Paris where a new raised patio is taking shape (shown above).

Yet To Live The Suite Life In Vegas? Here's How To Live It Up (For A Day)

November 21, 2013 at 9:22 PM | by | Comments (0)

While many look for the lowest rate when choosing a Vegas accommodation, others splurge to ensure a suite getaway. But, if you've never been able to enjoy a high-end accommodation, or just wanted to funnel your Vegas vacation funds to other parts of your stay, you'll soon have a chance to make this one suite holiday season.

Junior Achievement of Southern Nevada will give you access to five of Las Vegas' swankiest suites for just $100. Now, now, don't get too excited. We said access, not the keys! Still, if you want to see how over-the-top accommodations can get in Vegas, there's really no better way as Junior Achievement also provides complimentary shuttle service to each hotel as well as in-suite tastings and beverages at every stop along the way.

Don't Put Off Experiencing The Eiffel Tower At Paris Las Vegas

Want a picture just like this saved in your camera roll forever?

You don't need to be a VIP to capture it. The Eiffel Tower Experience at Paris gives you the opportunity to travel up 47 stories to a 360-degree, open-air cage high atop Vegas' Eiffel Tower.

The chance to get a view of all sides of The Strip is a truly breathtaking experience. The area is rather cramped and can feel a tad crowded, but with a bit of patience, you'll get your chance to see whichever direction of picturesque Las Vegas you please.

Sugar Factory Wants To Expand At Paris

Where: 3655 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109
August 28, 2013 at 10:13 PM | by | Comment (1)

Recently a VegasChatter fan wrote to us wondering why there are so many candy shops in Vegas and pointing out that, on a recent visit, "it seemed like every resort and mall had one of the two to three chains." We've been surprised about Vegas' sugar addiction, too, but admit we've made a purchase or two ourselves over the years.

Obviously, there's enough demand to support all the venues we see, and then some, apparently. In fact, Sin City's sweet high will soar even higher in the coming months. Hershey's Chocolate World is coming soon to New York-New York despite the fact there's a M&M's World right across the street. Sugar Factory also recently announced it's building another location (what will be its fifth in town) in Town Squareand, now, we're learning it wants to expand its outpost at Paris, too.

That's Amore: Steve Martorano To Get Second Vegas Restaurant

July 2, 2013 at 6:21 PM | by | Comments (0)

Martorano's has some serious balls. While some Vegas restaurants hype their balls, too, Rao's weren't as juicy as we've been told and Meatball Spot just doesn't hit said area for us anymore, either. That's why we're really excited to hear that Steve Martorano will open his second Vegas restaurant next year. And, this time, he's coming to the Vegas Strip, baby.

Beginning early next year, Martorano's will be located in the Paris as well as the Rio. The eatery will take over the space currently occupied by Le Provençal at the resort.

Seven Vegas Acts You Can Meet And Greet

June 3, 2013 at 8:20 PM | by | Comments (5)

Part of the fun of a trip to Vegas is seeing celebrities in action, whether it's on stage, in the club, or at the blackjack table. No doubt, some sightings are more graceful than others.

While many interactions are unofficial and the result of being at the right place at the right time, you can also guarantee a meet-and-greet with Vegas performers should you feel inclined to pony up a little extra dough. Various acts from the likes of Boyz II Men to David Copperfield offer packages that allow fans the chance to shake hands. Here's seven Vegas acts that don't mind seeing fans up close and personal as long as you don't mind parting with a bit more cash:

When It's Date Night In Vegas

May 20, 2013 at 8:49 PM | by | Comments (0)

You can count on Las Vegas to bring out your wild child, but these restaurants will take your trip from adventurous to amorous. So, bust out those credit cards (these places aren’t cheap!) and put on a collared shirt (how romantic can you be in a tank top?) and get ready to impress your special someone with some candlelight and a bit of bubbly. Here are our five favorite restaurants to visit when we're in the mood for love:

Eiffel Tower Restaurant at Paris
A restaurant in a fake Eiffel Tower in the middle of the Las Vegas Strip could’ve been ridiculously cheesy, but this place gets everything right. From personal service (ask for Lyle!) and the awesome views of the Bellagio Fountains to the velvety red decor, it’s like Valentine’s Day every day inside the Eiffel Tower Restaurant.

How Does Gordon Ramsay Steak Stand Up A Year Later?

Where: 3655 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109
May 8, 2013 at 1:28 PM | by | Comments (2)

When Gordon Ramsay Steak opened at Paris Las Vegas last year, it was the toughest table in town but garnered pretty darn good reviews from the fortunate early-goers. Another VegasChatter writer gambled on the menu's higher prices and walked away with one of his top five steaks of the year.

With Ramsay expanding his restaurant empire seemingly into any space with a heartbeat over the past year, we wondered how his Vegas first held up under his ever diversifying attention. When the occasion recently arose to splurge on a unique dining experience, this writer took the plunge for his first visit to GR Steak.

This Month, (Some Of) The Jokes Are On Caesars

April 8, 2013 at 6:34 PM | by | Comments (0)

With April Fool's Day being so anticipated and expected these days, it's hard to play a proper prank -- something that was obvious to anyone who followed along with the mainstream news last week.

Companies made their best attempts at corporate humor. Google pretended they were introducing a few new products, such as Google Nose -- a joke that fell flat on its face. We also saw other phony products and services such as pizza-flavored Tic-Tacs, glass-bottom planes, and promises of good-looking delivery boys. Um? Then we have juvenile stuff like this floating around YouTube which had us scratching our head. Is this really the best we've got?

The saving grace is that Vegas, in particular Caesars Entertainment, is celebrating humor (or the lack thereof) all month long in the form of discounts to comedy shows and performances. Here's a roundup of the deals so you can see which tickle your funny bone most:

To Theme Or Not To Theme?

March 29, 2013 at 5:34 PM | by | Comments (17)

Every casino has a concept which may or may not be seen as a theme depending on how obvious it. Wynn, Aria and Cosmopolitan have a concept behind the design, but these casinos are not seen as themed because it's not as cartoonish obvious as the Eiffel Tower at Paris or the castle turrets surrounding Excalibur. There hasn't been an obviously themed casino in Las Vegas since The Venetian and The Palazzo were completed in 1999 and 2007, respectively. That could all be changing with Resorts World Las Vegas.

Resorts World Las Vegas is set to open in 2016 and will have a heavy Asian influence throughout the $2 billion property. Resorts World Las Vegas will include a series of bronze and gold glass towers flanking Asian-style red pagodas, lagoons and fountains. There is even plans for a replica of the Great Wall of China and discussion on whether or not they will have a panda exhibit. The inclusion of a water park definitely makes Resorts World Las Vegas the first outwardly family friendly casino on The Strip in years.
