EDC, BABY, EDC!
Here's a cheat sheet for what's happening in Las Vegas this weekend. These are events and listings that we picked because we think they're cool, noteworthy and/or funny. This is not a complete listing of everything that's happening in Vegas this weekend so simma' down now. Remember, what happens in Vegas...should probably be shared with VegasChatter. XOXO.
*TONIGHT* OPEN CONTAINER BEER FEST, June 19: Motley Brews is bringing back their popular Open Container Beer fest to Downtown's Container Park tonight. Choose from a selection of 20+ seasonal craft brews while comedy music clips play in the background. Go here to check out the brews. Tickets cost $20 online and $25 at the door. FWIW, the samples of beer are 4oz, and poured within an Open Container tasting glass.
ELECTRIC DAISY CARNIVAL, June 19-21: Once again the three-day
molly music festival will take over the Las Vegas Motor Speedway with an expected 130,000 ravers expected to show up. This is why you will see a lot of neon clothing this weekend. If you're attending EDC or are at home and are extremely bored, you might want to check out the EDC Missed Connections site. Powered by the Burner app, here's where people who've made drug love connections but forgot to get digits, will be able to "find" each other once the high wears off the concert ends.
Wahlburgers / Donnie Wahlburg / Paul Wahlburg / Mark Wahlburg / Burger Joints / The LINQ / Grand Bazaar Shops / → All Tags
Every so often we get an email from someone wondering when the Wahlburgers Las Vegas will be opening. Sadly, there hasn't been much sizzling on the grill regarding when and where the first of at least three burger joints from Mark
ie, Donnie and Paul Wahlberg will open up. And we're not so sure we'll see any sizzling.
For a while, we had believed that the Wahlburgers (and their A&E reality TV show) would open up at the Grand Bazaar Shops, but a source familiar with the property tells us the boys have pulled out. However, it looks like they still want to be in Vegas as our source says the trio is looking at new spaces over at The LINQ. The change of venue is not surprising given how dead the shops are these days.
Wherever they end up, it's safe to say we don't think a Wahlburgers will open in Vegas before 2016. Indeed, the Walhburgers' Twitter account admitted as much:
@Vegaschick68 It's taking longer than expected. Thank you for your patience!— Wahlburgers (@Wahlburgers) June 15, 2015
But you know what they say--"Step by step, ooo baby, really want you in my world." Er, we mean, "Hanging tough!". Er, "Never say Never."
Spas / The LINQ / Spa at The LINQ / Relaxation / → All Tags
Fresh off opening their new pool scene and their new pool cabana rooms, The Linq Hotel and Casino has opened their latest spot for relaxation, The Spa at The LINQ. This is the first spa concept for Caesars Entertainment since the introduction of The Qua Spa and Baths at Caesars Palace.
Located on the 6th floor, the The Spa at The LINQ is a full-service facility offering about 10 different massage treatments (starting at $125) that range from restoration to Thai massage, a couples' massage and even a Mommy-To-Be massage, along with facials for men and women and body treatments. There's also a full-service salon offering manicures and pedicures and a 2,000-sq.ft. fitness center equipped with cardio machines, stability balls and resistance bands. Yoga classes are expected to be offered in the future.
But should you find it hard to put down your phone and really relax, don't feel so bad about that. The LINQ is totally cool with your technology addiction.

Yes, it's billions in debt and going through bankruptcy, but you know what they say, you got to spend money to make money. So, Caesars Entertainment is answering MGM Resorts' plans for a just-off-the-Strip Topgolf location by teeing up a golf concept of its own. Mini-golf, that is.
The land behind The High Roller is used for parking right now, but has always been earmarked for expansion of The Linq promenade concept. Now, thanks to a tipster who leaked these renderings to us, the gaming company has apparently committed to a course of action (with an emphasis on "course") -- The Linqs, a family friendly mini-golf experience.
Pool Scenes / Pools / The LINQ / The Strip / The Quad / Name Changes / → All Tags
There aren't many places on the Vegas Strip, outside of The Cosmo and the realm of high roller digs, where guests can step from their room directly onto their own patch of sunlit paradise. The LINQ, however, now offers a moderately priced option.
Instead of booking a room and cabana separately while in Vegas, consider reserving one of the LINQ's 25 cabana rooms instead. Located on the second floor and appearing to be just another standard accommodation from within, these rooms feature a sliding glass door that opens onto a private patio. From there, guests can walk right onto the pool deck (as long as it's between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.)

The LINQ's new pool is so fresh and so clean, y'all. And, you can get slizzard (not that slizzard, but since it's 21 and over, a little slizzard) by indulging in its poolside cocktail menu. Here's how you can stay hydrated, while drinking plenty of water, of course, poolside at the LINQ:

The hotel-casino's new pool deck opened to guests last weekend and, after a tour Thursday, we have no qualms about saying it's the most refreshing find of the 2015 pool season. (Sorry, Delano Beach Club.) The drab, concert slab of the past (and that awful faux rock display) has been ripped out and replaced with a super cute, beach-y vibe, from a textured deck reminiscent of white-sand beaches to the wooden planks in the cabanas.
Eating / Dining / Restaurants / Brooklyn Bowl / The LINQ / Blue Ribbon / → All Tags
Brooklyn Bowl's fried chicken, the much-raved about creation of Blue Ribbon Restaurants, is finger-lickin' good. Trust us. But, if you're gluten intolerant or just choose to say no to the g stuff, you've never been able to try it. Until now. A GF (gluten-free) version has been added to the menu.
The LINQ bowling alley/eatery/concert hall now offers GF fried chicken made with GF matzo meal "flown in directly from Israel." Apparently, they're buying 4,000 pounds of the stuff thrice yearly so don't be afraid of it running out.

The green beer will be flowing in just a few days and, on the Las Vegas Strip, no three spots will get their Irish on more than O'Sheas at The LINQ, Rí Rá at Mandalay Place and pretty much all of New York-New York. Here's a rundown of what to expect at each for St. Patrick's Day:

Shopping / The LINQ / The Strip / Gilt / → All Tags
If you were the former, Gilt is a members-only online shopping site that provides discounts on a variety of mostly high-end brands. For instance, a Lanvin clutch could retail for $1,390, but you'd find it on Gilt for $999. If Target is to Walmart than Gilt is to Zappos, or thereabouts.
Above the Polaroid Fotobar (where we found ourselves lovin' things other than Polaroid pictures) lies a free museum that has been showcasing an Andy Warhol exhibit, but not for much longer. Our friends at Polaroid tell us the collection closes this Saturday, February 7. Swing by before then and see 50 original Polaroids by Warhol, a wax figure of him on loan from Madame Tussaud's (seen above), and a few of his cameras, too.
