After leaving Rio to make way for a Duck Commander, MJ Live had hoped to glide over to a new locale at Riviera. A planned opening of March 2, however, never happened as the hotel-casino is now in its final weeks of operation after being sold to the LVCVA (Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority). The Riv, if you haven't heard by now, will close its doors at noon May 4.

Another popular reality TV series has set its sights on the Las Vegas stage.
The parody based on the Pawn Stars may have closed up shop at Riviera last year, but that's not stopping the off-Strip arrival of DUCK COMMANDER MUSICAL, based on a book about Duck Dynasty's Robertson family, at Rio this April.
The 46th Annual World Series of Poker at Rio is less than four months away, and poker fanatics were given a taste of what to expect this summer with the official release of the complete schedule of events.
The festivities will kick off on Wednesday, May 27th with a casino employees event, which is traditionally the first event of the series. The final event, as always, will be the $10,000 main event which, this year, begins on July 5th and goes all the way through July 14th, at which point the final nine players will go on hiatus and return in November to play down to a winner. There are plenty of other events during the seven weeks in between that should provide something for just about everybody, including the massive Colossus tournament which is predicted to be the largest live poker tournament ever.

Ever since the start of the "poker boom" back in 2003, when an unknown accountant from Tenessee with the unlikely name of Chris Moneymaker won the World Series of Poker, no-limit Texas Hold 'Em has been the game of choice among poker players everywhere.
It's easy to forget that, in the grand scheme of things, no-limit hold 'em is a relatively new game. If you were in Las Vegas back in the 90's or earlier, you would be much more likely to be playing a game like 7 card stud or even a variation of draw poker. While most poker players today are content playing no-limit, there are many who long for the days when this variation of the game didn't have the near monopoly it seems to have on the poker world today. The good news is, if you look hard enough, there are still places in Las Vegas where you can find some alternatives. Here's a look at some poker rooms around town that offer up a bit of variety for those looking to mix things up:

There's a lot of sh*t that happens in Vegas and not all of it can make it on our site. Starting today and continuing each Friday, we'll take note of some of the smaller announcements around town that may be of interest, too. Here's the rundown for the week of January 5:
All of the Lights: XS Nightclub at Wynn has stepped up the oohh, dropping $10 mil on new, state-of-the-art technology, from a new pyro system and lasers to movable LED screens.

On the heels of the much raved about and successful Pawn Stars-inspired production, Pawn Shop Live, it's no surprise to hear another popular reality TV show is (possibly) making its way to the Las Vegas stage. (Yes, today is opposite day. Or, sarcasm day. They're interchangeable, regardless.)
The New York Times is reporting that the Duck Dynasty family is planning a musical for Vegas about, yep, Duck Dynasty.
Ladies and gentleman, your new World Series of Poker champion, Martin Jacobson.
The Swede came out on top in a nearly 15-hour final table played over the past two days at the Penn and Teller Theatre at Rio. Jacobson, 27, wins $10 million for his first-place finish.
The final table of the 2014 World Series of Poker will take place in the Penn & Teller theatre at Rio November 10-11. The designation of favorite belongs to chipleader Jorryt van Hoof, whose odds were set at 57/20 (roughly 2.85 to 1) by online sportsbook Bovada this week.

Debuting Tuesday, August 19, the SyFy show, Wizard Wars, will be the magic equivalent of Project Runway. The reality series, featuring Vegas magicians and Rio headliners Penn & Teller, will challenge the magically inclined to "come up with magic made from things you’d never expect.” Sounds like a fun "unconventional" challenge on a certain aforementioned show, right? Well, make it work designers.. umm.. magicians.
Penn & Teller serve as celebrity judges and executive producers of the competition-style show and the show's online description sums it up neatly:
