Usually at pools and beach clubs the food is pretty basic. The menus include classic staples like burgers, sandwiches, fruit platters, chicken strips etc. Nothing extraordinary. When I visit pools, the last thing on my mind is the food. Iím usually more interested in the drinks (donít judge). So, when I recently visited Delano Beach Club, the last thing I expected was to be blown away by a food item on their menu. But, I was.
My guest ordered the Shrimp and Crab Salad Sandwich and I initially cringed. The sounds of crab and shrimp salad didnít appeal to me, especially in the heat and while drinking the beach clubís sweet, sugary drinks. I was wrong about the sandwich, though, and pleasantly surprised. It was fantastic!
So, we gave you the scoop on Delano Beach Club, the newest Vegas pool on The Strip. The new kid on the block opened just next to Mandalay Bay Beach a little over a week ago and they invited us to check out the venue first hand.
I went to DBC on a Thursday, which was perfect because that means it wasnít too hectic or crowded. My guest and I were greeted by a group of eager, inviting staff who set us up in chairs right at the edge of the pool. We were informed that the chairs are complimentary if you are a Delano hotel guest and show a room key at the door. This is a plus considering some beach clubs charge hundreds of dollars for a chair (insane. so insane).

As clubs keep trying to outdo each other with more and more elaborate bottle service presentations (drone delivery, anyone?), the spectacle is beginning to get
out of control even more over the top. Encore Beach Club is upping the ante with two new packages for your indulgence.
First up is the Sons of Beach Club motorcycle-themed offer where a gang of leather bikini-clad servers ride out to your table on a real, production model Harley-Davidson armed with a Nebuchadnezzar (thatís 15 liters) of Veuve Clicquot, Yellow Label plus 20 bottles of house bubbly. Hopefully, thereís a sidecar to hold all that booze. This will set you back $25,000.

Feel good? Why should I need to feel good about renting a cabana? I'm on vacation. It's me time, baby! Okay, we get it. But, if you're interested in warming your heart the same time you fry that bod, Palms' "Cabanas for a Cause" will be around once again.
If you're not familiar with the annual endeavor, each pool season Palms rents out cabanas on select Mondays for $100 each. Yep, just a hundred. And, the proceeds go entirely to charity. This year, such local organizations as the Special Olympics of Southern Nevada, Opportunity Village, Aid for AIDS in Nevada, and more will benefit from your summertime indulgence. A full schedule is detailed below. You can also donate additional money, if you so choose.

There's a lot of sh*t that happens in Vegas and not all of it can make it on our site as a full report. So, every Friday, we take note of some of the smaller announcements around town that may be of interest, too. Here's the rundown for the week of April 6:
WuHu at Silverton: The off-Strip hotel-casino will add a new restaurant, WuHu Noodle, this June.
Presented without comment: SLS is hosting an 18+ pool party Thursday, April 16 at Foxtail. Doors will open at 8 p.m. for what's being called "the sexiest new pool club in Sin City."

There aren't many places on the Vegas Strip, outside of The Cosmo and the realm of high roller digs, where guests can step from their room directly onto their own patch of sunlit paradise. The LINQ, however, now offers a moderately priced option.
Instead of booking a room and cabana separately while in Vegas, consider reserving one of the LINQ's 25 cabana rooms instead. Located on the second floor and appearing to be just another standard accommodation from within, these rooms feature a sliding glass door that opens onto a private patio. From there, guests can walk right onto the pool deck (as long as it's between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.)

The LINQ's new pool is so fresh and so clean, y'all. And, you can get slizzard (not that slizzard, but since it's 21 and over, a little slizzard) by indulging in its poolside cocktail menu. Here's how you can stay hydrated, while drinking plenty of water, of course, poolside at the LINQ:

The hotel-casino's new pool deck opened to guests last weekend and, after a tour Thursday, we have no qualms about saying it's the most refreshing find of the 2015 pool season. (Sorry, Delano Beach Club.) The drab, concert slab of the past (and that awful faux rock display) has been ripped out and replaced with a super cute, beach-y vibe, from a textured deck reminiscent of white-sand beaches to the wooden planks in the cabanas.

Meant to send ripples through the Vegas pool scene this April, Delano Beach Club is still a work in progress. But, not as much as we'd thought.
For some reason or other, we assumed the coming pool experience, which will take over a portion of Mandalay Bay Beach, would involve extensive 'rip it out and mix it up' changes. A walk around the entire pool complex Thursday, however, yielded no grandoise new entrance, no construction equipment and no piles of dirt.

Spring break is a couple weeks away (*puts down food, runs to gym*) and Wet Ďní Wild will be there for those looking to laze away the days. The park will open March 28-April 5 for spring break.
Wet Ďní Wild General Manager Takuya Ohki recently told the Las Vegas Review-Journal about the park's newest attraction, Slideboarding. It will be a waterslide gaming experience similar to Guitar Hero. Using a smart gaming system, guests will ride a slideboard and will hit targets for points as well as to unlock new levels. Slideboarding is a pay-to-play attraction so guests will have to shell out money unless they're a Gold or VIP season pass holder.
