The V Theater musical, which has been killing it (hee) on The Strip since July 2012, will offer a special, see-what-we-did-there $13 ticket price this Friday (and Saturday, too). General admission is normally $49.99.
When it comes to legendary tastes on The Strip, the 24 Layer Chocolate Cake at Planet Hollywood's Strip House takes the... err... cake. Food Network’s Michael Psilakis named it his favorite guilty pleasure when it comes to the Best He's Ever Ate. And, while this writer's all about Las Vegas food he admittedly hasn't had this particular sugar high (24 alternating layers of chocolate cake and chocolate filling topped with French semi-sweet chocolate ganache) just yet.

Britney Spears officially arrived in Vegas tonight and was welcomed to her new home at Planet Hollywood with a 'blink and ya missed it' appearance. Where outrageous and traffic-stopping was expected, instead crowds received a brief performance by some Britney impersonators before the real deal arrived. But, seeing as how she likely has a lot of work, b*tch before her December 27 debut (oops, we did
see what we did it, again), we're sure her true fans understood the brevity of her ceremony.
When she did appear, Brit Brit greeted a swell of onlookers with this address:

If you've been yearning for a new place to get a burger in Vegas, your time is now.
After being the first to tell you about the coming of Ketchup Premium Burger Bar to Miracle Mile at Planet Hollywood back in August, we can now be the first to tell you that it's officially open. Yes, it's a riveting exclusive first look, for sure.

Ah, Black Friday. It's the ultimate display of consumerism in America. You know, the time of year when people trample each other to save a few bucks. But, we sure do love a deal, especially in a town like Vegas where they are so few and far between (unless you consider $8 beers a bargain, of course).
For all you savvy shoppers out there, here's what Sin City has in store for you as you digest your Thanksgiving turkey:
Las Vegas Premium Outlets (North or South): Oh wait... did we say the day after Thanksgiving? We meant on Thanksgiving. Those looking for a good excuse to get out of dish duty can hit the outlets and take advantage of the fact that stores will be open not only on Thanksgiving Day, but straight through to Friday (and, if they close at all Thursday night, they will reopen at midnight and stay open until 10 p.m. Friday night).
Shoppers can sign up for the Free VIP Shopper Club to get access to online coupons and a VIP coupon book. A Gift With MasterCard Purchase After-Thanksgiving Promotion will also give shoppers who make a single-day purchase of $500 or more with their MasterCard credit or debit card on Saturday (Nov 30th) or Sunday (Dec 1st) a $50 MasterCard Gift Card. (ps, this will not be us.)

It'll offer all the same things as before, but this time, instead of hoping for starving shoppers it will bank on hungry Britney hordes with a location next to the performing arts theater where the pop star will host her Vegas residency. (Rumor has it Brit Brit is now an investor in the spot and, for those keeping score, originating chef Carla Pellegrino is out.)

Dogs doing tricks, naked zombies, mind reading, hypnosis, stripper class, country music impersonators. What doesn't the V Theater inside Miracle Mile at Planet Hollywood have? How 'bout a comedy show? The new Las Vegas Live Comedy show puts a check in that box. The comedy club debuted about a month ago and features a rotating cast of comedians from across the country.
The show begins with a "host" (not very good up-and-coming comedian) who introduces two established comedians. When we visited as part of a media invite, the comedians were both excellent despite being about 10 notches dirtier than we every expected.
Britney's still months away from taking the stage in her Vegas residency at Planet Hollywood, but that's not stopping media outlets from seeking
Amy stories. Before we leave you for the week, we thought we'd share a few of the more interesting ones. Left on the editing floor, the articles where Brit Brit says she'll sing live. Happy reading. We'll see you back here on Monday!

It's time for another installment of Sip or Pour where we give you two great drinking spots on The Strip. We've taken you to many of our favorite hangouts, but we always have a few more up our sleeves. As usual in our Sip & Pour style, we take you through two more bars that will either please all of your senses, or let you get
drunk the party started.
For "Sip," we like to highlight great spots you can chill out at and linger a while. For a fantastic experience, we take you over to the Cosmopolitan. The entire casino screams opulence, but nothing demonstrates that better than the three-story Chandelier Bar in the center of the casino!
The massive sparkling 'chandelier' that houses the bar drops from the ceiling and makes it the focal point of the casino and where much of the action takes place, or is observed from. The bar itself is made up of three different lounges, one on every level and each with their own energy. The bottom floor is breezy and best for people-watching, but it felt a little too busy for this writer. I found my groove on the second floor which still gives you the ability to observe everything while allowing you to get a little more cemented in conversation. The top floor is an intimate space; so, if you're looking to keep things laid back, then venture back down.
Even Britney knew this would be no surprise to anyone. Except Good Morning America which let us know we heard about Britney's Las Vegas residency there first earlier this morning. Planet Hollywood.

The Internets are starting to go cray cray (slipping into our assumed Britney speak) with news that Caesars Entertainment has reportedly invited employees to "come play a part in the biggest announcement in Las Vegas Entertainment History" on September 17.
Labor Day Weekend ended up being the last weekend for Gallery Nightclub.
