Still not at full capacity, The Linq shopping promenade will at least fill in two more storefronts in the next few days.

12.9 Update: Turn those frowns upside down. A publicist for Off The Strip relays the restaurant is now aiming to open on December 24.
Oh, what a difference a month makes. A few weeks ago, Off The Strip, the newest eatery headed for The LINQ promenade between Flamingo and The LINQ Hotel, touted a December debut. Now, a new press release pushes that back to January.
The restaurant will be a sister establishment to two other off-Strip locations. (See what we did there?) The third locale will be adjacent to O'Sheas at the off the Strip mall. (Oops, we did it again.)

Havaianas, a Brazilian flip flop brand, and Gordon Ramsay Fish And Chips are both headed to the promenade (the former before year's end, the latter early next year) and now it's official that one of the mall's originally announced brands, Off The Strip, will still arrive, after all.

The Strip hasn't reached its Gordon Ramsay threshold yet. Not satisfied with three Vegas enterprises (Gordon Ramsay Pub at Caesars Palace, Gordon Ramsay BurGR at Planet Hollywood and Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris), the world-renowned chef is cooking up yet another concept for Sin City -- Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips.

The LINQ promenade should have one less empty storefront before year's end.
Havaianas, a Brazilian company known for its flip flops, is expected to open its first stand-alone location in Vegas at the LINQ before 2014 draws to a close. It had been previously anticipated that the brand would open a boutique at Bally's Grand Bazaar Shops so we don't know if this will be one of two for the Strip, or if it's just switching locales. Since the company's website only lists the LINQ as coming soon, perhaps it will end up being the latter.

If you want to impress us with your Vegas devotion via permanent body art, you’ll soon have your chance to be one of the first to get a tattoo at the new LINQ Hotel at the actual LINQ. Club Tattoo recently announced it will open up shop at the newly renamed (again) hotel in “early 2015.”
The new studio joins the other outpost at Planet Hollywood's Miracle Mile Shops. The decidedly different and brightly colored façade of The Linq Hotel & Casino would make for some fun designs either on its own or perhaps framing a drawing of the High Roller. Think of how YouTube famous you could be for a second.
Last week, we mentioned that a Formula 1 race could be coming to the Strip in a couple of years. Well, there’s an auto race coming very close to the Vegas Strip and you only need to wait a few days to see it.
The Red Bull Global Rallycross Championship will be held here November 4-5 for the third consecutive year. This time around, the race will be held at The Linq. No, silly, they won’t be racing where the shops are located. The race will be held in The Linq
parking event lot behind the High Roller at Winnick Avenue and Koval Lane.
Wonder how many High Roller pod costumes this contest will inspire?

NASCAR and Las Vegas have a deeper relationship than most realize. One of the first few races of the season is held at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway (LVMS) every year. When there's not an event, visitors can even drive around LVMS at the Richard Petty Experience. While the last race of the season may take place in Homestead, Florida, it really draws to a close in Las Vegas. The NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion’s Week takes place around the valley December 2-5.
An annual celebration, NASCAR Champion’s Week is a chance for racing fans to see and (maybe) meet their favorite drivers. There’s also a very candid event that’s open to the public called After The Lap. The event is a tell-all conversation with the top 16 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers. In previous years, this off-the-cuff discussion has gone from interesting chatter and laughter to WTH when Tony Stewart dropped down to do push-ups or when Jeff Gordon decided that he’d break dance.

It’s no surprise that this particular VegasChatter'er has something good to say about TAG Bar at The LinQuad. Last weekend, I decided to take in a Sunday morning of football and beer at TAG for the first time.
Since there’s never a lull in the action of 12 football games, it’s surprising that I noticed and took the time to read about a stand-alone pigskin promotion now running at the bar. During Sunday, Mondayand Thursday night games, TAG offers different drink specials based on events that may occur. Check it out:
Located near The Linq's Strip entrance, the now 24-hour Starbucks offers a late-night happy hour. Drop in between 11 p.m. and 2 a.m., buy two drinks, and receive 50 percent off the cheaper of the two. (If they're both the same price, you'll still get the discount.) And, yes, with markup, you're probably still paying for two drinks, but if you were Jonesing for a late-night caffeine fix and would have picked up some, anyway, why not save a few bucks?
While art fans continue to duke it out over how much Sin City needs/deserves/should have/should support museums, lovers of fine art can still visit Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art (about to get Fabergé with it) and see fun pieces at CityCenter, Wynn Las Vegas and The Cosmopolitan, among other spots on The Strip. Another fun art attraction is the Polaroid Museum above the Polaroid store at The Linq.
