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):

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.

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.
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:

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.
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.
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?

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.

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.

Over the month of May, @WynnLasVegas tweeted about 36 times and 12 of those were full of respectful "could you please DM us" contrition:
MTV is hosting a new awards show tonight honoring music on the 'net, because who
shows watches it on TV anymore, anyway?
The O Music Awards are set to stream live from Fremont Street Experience tonight, but it's already slowing our Internet speeds with a live attempt to set a Guinness world record for freestyle rap now at the one hour, 29 minute and 6 second mark. 7 seconds. 8. Whatever, you get it. If you don't, there's a handy on-screen countdown, or rather count up. And, before you ask, 100 percent - "I'm gonna hit that shit quick, don't be nervous" - un-family friendly entertainment.
