Does The Plaza Now Offer The Best Video Poker In Downtown?

While we were preparing to check out the new slot machines and games at G2E, the Plaza made a big proclamation for video poker players.

The Main Street hotel-casino announced it was downtown’s best place for video poker. There are a lot of great video poker games to be found downtown so this is a bold statement. But, is it true? That’s up for discussion, but they do have a great selection of video poker games, according to vpFREE2.com.

Delmonico Serving Up Piedmontese Beef

Where: 3355 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109

Delmonico has always done things to set itself apart from the steakhouse crowd. In the Venetian|Palazzo, there are three other steak-specific places: Carnevino is Italian, Morels is French, and CUT is an LA/Beverly Hills style. And, none of them are slackers.

Delmonico has been going the extra mile to distinguish itself, adding unique meats to its signature Southern/Louisiana style, most notably a whole pig raised on Templeton Rye was turned into several "Snout to Tail" dishes. The restaurant also has added a truly interesting facet to their steak repertoire, one that many gourmands may not even be familiar with. It now has the exotic Piedmontese Beef.

The Plaza Might Push Other Vegas Burlesque Shows Out Of The Limelight

Where: 89101

The trouble with approaching anything with any sort of expectation is you’ll often be let down. Even if your own preconceived notions are all you’re battling, a good show might not live up to expectations based on your past experiences with the venue, a given performer, director, etc. It’s always nice to be pleasantly surprised and even better to be (borderline) blown away!

Limelight opened this past weekend at Plaza in Downtown Vegas. With it came the stigma of the venue’s failed productions and the challenge of getting people to go see a downtown show in the first place. Luckily, this isn’t your average burlesque revue. For starters, it’s from LA producers so it’s literally bringing a fresh perspective to Vegas.

Plaza Is Ready For 'Limelight'

Where: 1 Main Street [map], 89101

Sex sells and burlesque seems to sell even better at the moment with Vegas resorts all looking for their moment in the “limelight.” And soon, at downtown's Plaza, that will be with a capital "L."

Ridicula Imitatio is cashing in on the post-Great Gatsby remake buzz and lingering Roaring Twenties nostalgia by presenting a show by that name -- also the name of one of Charlie Chaplin's films -- starting next month at Plaza. Limelight’s website promises the production will take “the audience on a journey where contemporary burlesque meets old time ‘flicks.’” Think black-and-white silent films juxtaposed with modern burlesque and music... with a Chaplin and a Betty Boop impersonator thrown in.

Is The Plaza Tuff-N-Uff For MMA?

Where: 1 Main Street [map], 89101

MMA fans have a new reason to visit Downtown Vegas as amateur mixed martial arts promotion Tuff-N-Uff recently announced its first fight in the downtown area, to be held at the Plaza. Previous Tuff-N-Uff events have been held at South Point, The Orleans and Cox Pavilion. When asked about the move downtown, Tuff-N-Uff CEO Jeff Meyer shared this with VegasChatter:

I’ve been to a couple other events there and really enjoyed myself. I also happen to stay there often when I want a getaway from day-to-day life. Since the remodel, it's been pretty nice and fun. I've been keeping an eye on the economic revitalization of the Downtown area for a long time and thought that it would be great for Tuff-N-Uff to bring our event there. The Plaza was one of many properties interested in hosting our event.

Las Vegas Walking Tours Give Fun Perspective To Fremont Street, Downtown Vegas

June 27, 2014 at 7:34 PM | by | Comment (1)

It’s amazing that some people can visit Las Vegas and never see more than The Strip. With the Hoover Dam, Red Rock Canyon and Lake Mead so close, it’s mind-boggling that more tourists don’t take advantage of nearby offerings. For some, the reason is they came to relax, enjoy bottle service by the pool and dance all night at clubs. For many, it’s just because they’re only here a few days and don’t have the time. Enter Fremont Street. It’s very close to The Strip and is chock-full of rich history (and 99 cent margaritas!) visitors can soak up.

Wandering around Fremont Street on your own is fun, but you may be sucked into Mermaids for deep-fried Oreos or into Glitter Gulch for more than you bargained for, if you’re not careful. We recommend taking a tour with Las Vegas Walking Tours. Their Fremont Casino Center walking tour covers the length of Fremont Street plus Fremont East, the Container Park and properties just off Fremont like the Mob Museum and the Neon Boneyard.

Are The Wranglers Gone Forever?

May 21, 2014 at 4:05 PM | by | Comments (5)

After losing their home at Orleans Arena, the Wranglers teamed up with the Plaza to bring minor league hockey to Downtown Vegas. First, the plan was to erect a tent on the Plaza's pool level. That was soon scratched for a tent in the parking lot. Then, both sides apparently realized that neither had the funding to pull it off.
