Is your friend raving non-stop today about how amazing the Lorde concert was last night at The Cosmo? Don't fret. There are more than enough ways to rock out in Vegas not only this spring, but throughout the summer.
The Cosmopolitan's Valley to Vegas music series still has a few more acts for the people to enjoy and, beyond that, there are concert lineups by Mandalay Bay, Red Rock Resort, Fremont Street Experience and others to jam into your schedule. Here's a rundown of who's on tap, when and where:
It seems as if Cosmopolitan is enhancing its identity again. Late last year, its Identity players club became a little more transparent with how it dishes out reward points. And, earlier this year, a partnership with Marriott was expanded. Identity customers may have noticed a new change this week.†Identity just got a little thicker in the middle.
If youíre not a low roller or a high roller, you might fall into the new Sterling (pinkies out) tier of Identity. Whatís the difference? Hereís the difference. The website list benefits for its lowest tier, Silver, as nothing. Literally, nothing.

Ever since it opened in December of 2010, The Cosmopolitan has been known for not getting gamblers. Despite having beautiful hotel rooms and suites, great fried chicken (among other excellent dining options) and being home to a nightclub that brings in some of the most money in the country, the Cosmo has continued to lose revenue. That's slowly changing as losses for the Cosmopolitan have lessened over the past year and a new focus on gamblers has begun. In fact, casino revenues increased 25% in 2013 from 2012.
Casino changes at Cosmopolitan havenít been subtle. When you enter the resort from The Strip at night, youíre smashed in the face with the lights, a DJ and dancing girls at the†new(ish) Bond gambling pit. Thereís nothing wrong with another party pit on The Strip (besides the 6:5 blackjack). As you walk deeper into the casino, thereís gambling everywhere now. The once serene Chandelier Bar now has video poker. Even Queue Bar has been morphed into a gambling lounge with Pai Gow Poker and a few other table games. When you hop across the casino, youíll be greeted by a couple hologram dealers throwing hands of (virtual) cards in the air and somehow spinning a detached roulette wheel.

You may not be familiar with Interblock, but thatís going to change.
Interblock creates multi-player casino games that allow many to gamble together. You may have seen Rapid Roulette, Rapid Craps and video blackjack from other companies, but Interblock takes those ideas to another level. In the past weeks, theyíve introduced hologram gaming†at The Quad and The Cosmopolitan.

The Cosmopolitan made a big splash into the Vegas music scene last summer with the resort’s Set Your Life To Music (SYLTM) concert series that brought acts like Blink-182 and Gary Clark, Jr. to the property’s ultra-cool Boulevard Pool venue.
But the Cosmo’s musical menu wasn’t limited strictly to SYLTM, as a plethora of additional weekday and weekend shows featuring high-profile acts like MGMT, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Cold War Kids, Panic! At The Disco and others stopped by to rock one of the Strip’s most unique and laid-back concert settings.

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.
