Most of us are getting ready for March Madness or the first pitch of the Major League Baseball regular season. Football isn't front and center with most people that bet on sports, but that hasn't stopped Cantor Gaming (CG Technology) from looking forward to the NFL season. It's the first sportsbook operator to post season win totals for the next pro football season.
Over the past couple seasons, Cantor has become the first sportsbook operator to release NFL season win totals but this marks the earliest they've posted them to date. In fact, this is the earliest any sportsbook operator has released season win totals. Ever. Free agency hasn't begun yet and the NFL Draft is weeks away, but if you can see into the future maybe you're ready to place bets on how teams will perform. Take a look:
This writer can't speak for all bathrooms (ladies), but there are a set of unwritten rules, at least before the Internet age, for the men's room. Select appropriately, eyes forward, and no tossing of anything over the stall wall without permission, to name just a few. But, not having a formalized set of rules in any situation can lead to chaos. In a bathroom setting, do luxury fixtures and TVs above the urinals have a different set of rules than the gas station rest stop that needs a cement-weighted key to gain admission? Does classical music illicit different behavior than good ol' rock n' roll? One doesn't want to toot if the setting calls for scoot. And, don't even get me started on bathroom selfie protocols.
Male concert-goers to The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan can toss aside all fears of not "going" by the book. VegasChatter reader @paperposter sent us a list of Ten
commandments rules of Gentleman Etiquette posted inside the men's room there:
They say everything happens for a reason and this is it when it comes to
dragging your feet trying to decide on the most perfect way to impress that special someone with the depths of your wallet emotions.
Our favorite Vegas experience that must not be talked about, Rose.Rabbit.Lie. at The Cosmopolitan, has reached deep into its bag of
ping pong balls tricks to produce three indulgent ways to woo your love this February 14.

There was a day where it could be said that the Cosmopolitan didnít get gamblers. It may be still be true that they donít get gamblers, but itís no secret the Cosmo has been trying to acquire gamblers. Over the past year, theyíve been making small tweaks to their casino marketing to draw in more gamblers to supplement their bottom line. One of the more drastic changes to the casino is with Bond Bar.
The Cosmo has copious bars throughout the property making it a favorite place for many to stop, relax and grab a drink. However, gamblers (like this guy) would drop $10 for a drink and head to a casino elsewhere. Thatís no longer necessary as Bond has gone from being just a loud Strip-side bar to being a loud Strip-side bar with video poker and table games.

A tale in three cantos. Sounds like a child's fable, doesn't it? Well, this is no fairy tale, just a product of wild imaginations. Chances are you'll be hard-pressed to describe what you've seen (or the venue where it unfolds). Or, in some cases, just not want to. Called Vegas Nocturne, the three part show at Rose.Rabbit.Lie., is the entertainment portion of Cosmopolitan's self-proclaimed "grand social experiment."
Sometimes, a full restaurant review just won't do. Perhaps, there wasn't time for an A-Z meal. Maybe we just don't want to spoil it all. Or, a dog ate our good pictures. There may still be that one dish worth writing about. A new one, an old one. A newsworthy one or a memorable one (for better or worse). It might be the one dish, or drink, out of the whole experience that gets us to return. Or, stay away.
The mystery known as Rose.Rabbit.Lie. just opened at The Cosmopolitan. As advertised, Rose.Rabbit.Lie. is a nod to the past and a look to the future of the supper club. But, we're not going to spill the beans much here, either.

It drove us freakin' bananas.
What the heck was a Rose.Rabbit.Lie.? Why did it have to be a big riddle? And, why couldn't we find out more through a bit of
devious good ol' fashioned sleuthing? Even our invitation to a pre-opening preview at the Cosmo produced more questions than answers. Ok, we received no real answers.
It was flabbergasting. In the Las Vegas of today, there are no such things as secrets. There are no unknowns, anymore. Just look at the posts that fill this site. The Internet and anonymous tipsters reveal all long before there's an official 'coming soon' press release, let alone opening. So, when VegasChatter was invited to experience Rose.Rabbit.Lie. for ourselves, we had not a clue as to what to expect. Hell, we didn't even know how to dress and felt compelled to ask for advice.
That was the past, though. Now, it seems as if things are changing for the better. Recently, Identity decided to disclose the specific dollar amount of money played on table games that it takes to earn Identity points. This specific number isnít mirrored by other players clubs, but was a nice bit of transparency. Today, The Cosmo announced an expansion of its partnership with Marriott that will benefit Identity members, too.
The Cosmo has had an arrangement with Marriott since 2010, but it was specifically for the hotel portion of the property. Now, you'll be able to transfer points between Identity and Marriott's Rewards program. Every Identity point earned can be transferred to Marriott Rewards points and used at nearly 3,800 Marriott locations worldwide. Marriott Rewards members can also enjoy the benefit of using their points for almost every experience at The Cosmopolitan, including hotel rooms, dining, spa and other casino experiences.
Rent The Runway, a website that lets budgetistas become designer divas for a limited time, has been (forgive us) a runaway hit for years online. Now, just in time for New Year's Eve, a Rent The Runway boutique will pop up on the Las Vegas Strip.
Shop the shop beginning tomorrow, December 27 at The Cosmo:

At The Cosmopolitan, two towering doors steps from the entrance of Wicked Spoon are not attracting attention just yet. This writer, in fact, garnered more attention by simply photographing them. Passersby surely wondered just what was so remarkable about a set of unmarked doors. At this time, the answer is nothing. Despite their size, the doors still come across as discreet. And, a lack of signage, for now at least, fails to give folks looking to ease their hunger, or the newly sated, pause.
This Christmas Eve, an invitation to step beyond the threshold of Rose.Rabbit.Lie., the mysterious grand experiment opening soon at The Cosmo, proved a temptation impossible to resist. Upon entering, the unexpected, presented itself immediately. Beyond doors, doors. An intimate, angular antechamber was filled with one identical doorway after another. Seven, in all; not counting the one I'd just passed through. Only one, however, would be opened as a holiday treat.

We may not know what just yet, but we've known how much since last month.
Vegas Nocturne, the entertainment portion of Rose.Rabbit.Lie., the coming "grand social experiment" to The Cosmopolitan, was officially revealed in November. Described as "clever theatrics meet world music collaborations," we knew there would be three set performance times nightly if not exactly what to expect. Set to take place at 8 p.m., 10 p.m. and "late night," they were priced at $125 for the first two cantos (as they're being called) and $30 for the last. $30? For a new Vegas show? Even VegasChatter reader @wizardimps wondered whether a typo had been made.

If you do, this latest video ain't gonna help.
It's the fifth in a series of vids to promote the upcoming "grand social experiment," Rose.Rabbit.Lie., set to debut at The Cosmopolitan at month's, and year's, end and we're just as clueless now as with the first.
