What was teased Tuesday on social media was revealed on the same medium early this morning.
Planet Hollywood took to its Facebook and Twitter accounts yesterday to tease followers about the purpose of an enormous crane parked out front of the resort. We thought the answer would
logically be revealed today by the hotel, but fans only received another 'wait and see':

Though itís still snowing in parts of the country, Vegas is gearing up for another alcohol-fueled, DJ-driven pool season. For those who donít skip the gym and tanning salon in favor of winter hibernating, Vegas pool clubs are looking to fill their staff rosters with tanned and toned ďmodelĒ servers. If you arenít privy to the concept of model servers, it basically means casino resorts can get away with selecting staff based on looks alone, hence the incredibly fit and attractive employees who typically tote your drinks poolside.
The official start to pool season varies upon the weather, but typically pool clubs start opening around St. Patrickís Day. If the standard Vegas two-weeks-or-less spring leading into seven months of summer commences in early March, doors may open a little earlier.

If 2014 was the year of the new hotel, 2015 will be the year of the restaurant in Las Vegas. A billion (rough estimate) new dining destinations will fire up around Las Vegas this year and, for the most part, that's about it. Yes, we'll also see the arrival of Hakkasan North, erm.. Omnia.. and the Delano Beach Club, but otherwise, you're going to have some eating to do. And, by some, I mean you need to buy extra stretchy pants now.
So yeah, dining. You won't be able to walk in any direction without running into a new eatery this year. Aria will welcome Michael Mina's BARDOT Brasserie (January 16). Casino Royale will be all about that White Castle (expected later this month). Bellagio will bring the Lago (March). Caesars Palace will launch Searsucker and MR CHOW (both this spring). Gordon Ramsay will bring his Fish & Chips to The LINQ (spring). Morimoto will finally fire it up at The Mirage (summer). Rivea will replace miX at Delano (September?).

If you haven't already heard, the rooms at The LINQ Hotel & Casino will be ready for guests tomorrow, October 30 when the hotel officially changes its name (again) from The Quad. We've already given you a sneak peek at the accomodations (one room type shown above), which were entirely redone (and, yes, the elevators were redone, too!), but here are a few more updates on the hotel:
· A Coffee Shop and a 24-Hour Cafe are under construction right now. The coffee shop will be located near the guest elevators. It will not be a branded coffee shop chain, but rather, something "unique to Vegas." The 24-hour cafe will be located near the small retail corridor that will extend beyond the guest elevators. It too will be "unique."

VegasChatter Facebook fan Taylor R. found a trademark filed by parent company Hakkasan for the name, Omnia Beach Club. A check also found a sister trademark for Omnia Day Club. But, while this week's news reports have highlighted the rooftop garden, nary a word has been uttered about a day life experience.

The lobby and rooms (the panoramic suite pictured above and below) may say Delano meets the desert, but the transformation of THEhotel at Mandalay Bay into an entirely new brand isn't entirely complete.
Still to come is the departure of rooftop restaurant and lounge, miX. The long-lived dining destination by Alain Ducasse is expected to remain open through the remainder of the year. A new restaurant, also by Ducasse, Rivea, will debut around this time in 2015. The concept made its debut in Saint-Tropez last year and will feature French and Italian cuisine. (See what they're serving up in the French Riviera here.) miX Lounge will see a rebranding of its own, too.
The ladies have had their turn to show off their
questionable fashionable Vegas pool attire. Now, we're scoping out the men.
Since we're strictly scrolling Facebook photos at this point, there isn't a lot to work with since the pages tend to focus on the ladies. But what photos there are of men, we find to be pretty basic. Most men are wearing the holy trinity of pool gear -- shades, board shorts and ball caps. Nothing wrong with that, but god, it is boring to look at.
Props to the men who at least had stylish board shorts or funny sayings on their hats. Now we have to give a hand, er, props, to the men who busted out these trends:
While boobs, barely there bikinis, and beefcakes are the norm for the Vegas pool scene, we've begun to notice some extra special trends happening this season. A look through the various Facebook pages of Las Vegas' hottest pool parties revealed how widespread these trends really are. Here's what is hot right now in Vegas. Anna Wintour, shield your eyes.

Even though we havenít reached the official start of summer (this weekend), summertime events in Vegas have been booming for weeks. Pool parties started as soon as the weather permitted. The story is the same for Wet 'N' Wild, now well into its second season.
With temperatures regularly topping 100, access to a pool becomes a must for many when choosing their hotel. While summer isnít a slow time for Vegas, weíve been seeing some very low rates lately, many of which are bundled with free dining credit. The only catch is that most are coming from pool-less hotels. If you can find other ways of keeping cool, you may be able to take advantage of a sweet summertime deal. Here are a few of our favorites in downtown Vegas:

Red Rock Resort has one of the best pools you'll find anywhere in Vegas. As you can see from the HDRíd photo above, itís more like a pool complex with pools of varying size and depth. This is not what you'd expect to find at a "locals" casino.†The†complex also houses a covered bar and restaurant which features a similar menu to what youíll find inside at the Grand Cafe. Fans and misting systems almost make you forget itís 115 degrees. Almost.
Now that it's pool season, this writer is†always looking for an excuse to take his gaming outdoors. After placing bets and waiting for the Belmont Stakes to begin, some friends and I†decided to head outside and watch the race at the pool bar. Itís been almost a year since I†last visited the bar and I'd forgotten one of its most important features.
