M Resort is Giving Away Money (Kinda)

While we've been seeing more than enough players clubs decreasing benefits, but M Resort's iMagine Rewards players club is doing just the opposite.

iMagine is offering a bonus to its members through a Facebook promotion. All M Resort Facebook fans (new or old) can receive 2,500 free points on their iMagine Rewards Card. These aren't points that will help you achieve a better status card, but these points may prove more immediately useful if you're not a regular at the resort.

Which Is Worse: Vince Neil vs Palms on Twitter or Vince Neil's Strip Club Video?

April 3, 2012 at 12:13 PM | by | ()

We can't say it's surprising to see Vince Neil making headlines again in Vegas, but we were shocked to see that a Sin City hotel was just as publicly fired up as he was. A twit spat between @TheVinceNeil and @Palms blew up the Interwebs last night and many are pointing to a recent tweet by Neil slamming the service at Little Buddha as the impetuous for the battle.

Things really heated up last night when Neil went on a twitpage, accusing Palms executives of "dishonesty" and warning guests away (read from the bottom up):

Vegas Goes Dark, As Seen Through Instagram

April 2, 2012 at 6:52 PM | by | ()

One of the weirdest nights on The Strip happened over the weekend. And, yes, we know that's saying something.

On Saturday night, more than 30 hotels around Las Vegas powered down the neon to shed light on the importance of global sustainability. It was a good cause that made for a flood of Kodak Instagram moments.

For those of you who weren't there, we found five of the most outstanding Instagrams and share them with you below.

Vegas Gets In Your Face(book) And Up In Your Tweets

January 20, 2012 at 6:11 PM | by | ()

Moore eyes are on Grimes.

In what we hope becomes a trend, two Las Vegas restaurant chefs traded in their cooking utensils for social tools this week to chat with fans. Executive Chef Robert Moore of Jean Georges Steakhouse sat on Aria's Facebook page for an hour while Rao's Chef de cuisine Nicole Grimes took to Twitter. If you prefer kneading knots over bread, Mandarin Oriental's Spa and Salon hosted a recent chat, too. Next month, MO turns their talk into wine.

Chef Moore's chat threatened to get off to a quick boil with a case of mistaken Jean's and a steak eater who likes his knives sharp but the pot simmered down. The Q&A that followed was heavy on recipes and cooking tips with a small dash of secret sauce thrown in. Here are some highlights from the steak and meatball chats:

If this is the start to a new Vegas trend, we think we're in heaven.. and we'll most definitely be at the bar. Two Vegas bars, specifically. PBR Rock Bar at Planet Hollywood's Miracle Mile which started offering free booze to its Twitter followers every Thursday back in April and, now, McFadden's at Rio is on the verge of launching its Social Social Event.

The Mirage Experiences Kardashian Khaos

A polarizing post for The Mirage on Facebook.

Kardashian. Just the word will evoke squeals, disgust, eye rolls and, some cases, slight nausea so it's no surprise that when The Mirage excitedly revealed plans for a Kardashian Khaos retail store on Facebook, kalamity ensued.

We're excited to announce Kardashian Khaos is coming! A new retail store will open later this year & you're invited to experience the Kardashians like never before!

Close to 100 people gave the news a thumbs up, but just as many blasted the hotel for its decision with some going as far as saying they'll never stay there again:

How To Get 5,000 Free MLife Tier Credits

August 1, 2011 at 2:23 PM | by | ()

MGM Grand has been tweeting about an ambiguous Mlife promotion where you can earn 5,000 tier credits. We weren't sure if we had to jump through hoops or go to Facebook and "like" something so we kept our eyes peeled to see what the deal was. Turns out all we had to do was enter our Mlife players club number, email and date of birth into a form on Facebook and we were granted our 5,000 tier credits.

What Ladies Need to Know About Getting into the Clubs

July 11, 2011 at 3:23 PM | by | ()

All the single ladies, all the single ladies. And taken ladies too. Our Club Kid BrandyAlxander is back with her firsthand expertise on getting into the best Vegas clubs and partying VIP style. We know, we know. Dudes probably need more help with this but you're just gonna have to wait in line a little longer.

My first glimpse into Vegas’ nightlife scene was when I was 13. I wasn’t partying it up like Drew Barrymore did in her wild child days (though that would’ve been amazing, celeb rehab and all). It was when I was watching MTV’s Real World: Las Vegas, the first go-around, when the seven strangers lived in the now infamous suite at The Palms.

I really shouldn’t have been watching the show, but even at the tender age of 13, I knew I was destined to dance the night away with my friends in some posh setting. And since I turned 21 last year, I’ve visited 21 of Vegas’ nightclubs. (They don’t call me a club kid for nothin’!)

So far in my crash course of clubbing, I’ve learned how to distinguish from “VIP Entry” scams and even how to score a free table with bottle service.

Allow me to help hook you up. And by “you,” I mean just women. Sorry dudes, this one is for the ladies.

Behind The Curtain of NYNY's Tweets

Most Vegas casinos tweet these days, some with a team working the buttons behind the scenes while others opt to fly solo. Unless you know someone that knows someone you might be limited to following @WynnLasVegas, @FlamingoVegas, or @RivieraLasVegas. But what if you want more behind the scenes scoop and pictures?

Weinergate Hits Las Vegas

June 7, 2011 at 7:44 PM | by | ()

We can't turn a TV on the past couple days without being hit in the face with Weinergate. For those cutoff from anyone with a political opinion or holed up in reality show quarantine, Anthony Weiner is the Congressman who publicly tweeted a pic of his junk instead of sending it via direct message, apparently the preferred junk sending method of social media.

Just as the last tear started to dry out on the story, more of the women Weiner communicated with came forward with their story. One of those Weiner women is a 40 year old blackjack dealer in Las Vegas who admitted to exchanging over 220 messages with the Congressman since August 2010.

Now You Can Shop The Resorts of MGM From Your Phone (Kinda)

June 6, 2011 at 2:48 PM | by | ()

So, we're thinking this one will be filed under "because we can."

MGM Resorts now has an app for all of its retail stores, outside of the luxe boutiques inside The Crystals. The iPhone application lets you browse the shops of ten of its hotels including ARIA, Bellagio, Monte Carlo and New York-New York. The key word here being browse as you can't buy anything, 'cause why would you actually want to - you know - shop.

Wynn Is Sorry To Hear That

Ummm... Is it just us or has the Twitter stream for Wynn been filled with more apologizes then Rod Blagojevich lately?

Over the month of May, @WynnLasVegas tweeted about 36 times and 12 of those were full of respectful "could you please DM us" contrition:
