Assuming you caught our update on Jeff Civillico’s new digs over at Flamingo, you might have noted the part where we said his temporary move was due to renovations of his former showroom at The Linq. If you’re keeping score at home, that means Divas Las Vegas, the show Civillico used to share a stage with, will be displaced as well.

✨ Tonight was our last night performing in the Linq Showroom, formerly the Imperial Palace. This was a classic Vegas...

Posted by Frank Marino's Divas Las Vegas on Monday, July 13, 2015


The Facebook page of Frank Marino’s Divas Las Vegas posted a photo of The Linq Showroom after the show’s very last performance in that room. Not to worry, both the showroom and the show will go on. The theater is getting a complete renovation and Divas will be sashaying back in all its feather boa-ed glory once the upgrade is complete.

July 10, 2015 at 8:00 PM | by | ()

Stacks!

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.

THE LINQ'S PING PONG PARTY: The LINQ Pool is teaming up with USA Table Tennis to bring Ping Pong by the Pool. This party will kick off at 8 p.m. and it will feature 20 Ping-Pong tables for guests to play on and over 30,000 Ping-Pong balls that will fill the pools. This event goes until midnight and it is free to the public (score!) There will be Miller Lite, Coors Light and Herradura Tequila drink specials all night.

LAST CHANCE TO SEE WSOP: The World Series of Poker continues at the Rio Las Vegas but this is your last weekend to watch the Main Event in person for free. The first phase of the tourney will end on July 14.

JAMIE FOXX AT HYDE BELLAGIO You can get a fast pass to this event for "only" $100. Otherwise, admission is $20 for ladies, $30 for dudes.

PARTY WITH PLAYMATES AT DAYLIGHT: Playmates have taken over the Daylight and Light Clubs at Mandalay Bay, culminating in a Midsummer Night's Dream at Light tomorrow night. Here's a description, try to control yourself: "Guests are invited to the 1,001 Arabian Nights themed fantasyland as Light nightclub transforms into a mystical Arabian dream, featuring a plethora of attending Playboy bunnies. Costumes or masks are required for entry."

KISS THE BLARNEY STONE AT THE D: A drunk man made off with The D's hotels Blarney Stone during what he says was a drunken bender. Fortunately, the man has returned it and you can go kiss the lucky charm again.

CADDYSHACK AT DOWNTOWN CONTAINER PARK: Suddenly, there's no shortage of places to watch movies in downtown. The Container Park will kick off their outdoor movie series on The Lawn at 9:05pm Sunday night with a screening of Caddy Shack.

We are really lovin’ the pool at The LINQ this summer. (Go here for our story on the all-new pool deck.) And now there are a few more reasons why you should pop in on your next trip to town. Ahem competing Strip pools, take notes.

Has BLVD Cocktail Company Stopped Shaking and Stirring?

July 8, 2015 at 2:18 PM | by | ()

It looks like BLVD Cocktail Company at The Linq has poured its very last drink expertly crafted cocktail.

A VegasChatter tipster sent us this photo of the closed bar last night at 10pm, during what should have been open business hours. We had heard whispers back in April that the bar would be closing, but it looks like they got at least a few months of reprieve.

Another VegasChatter contributor says the place was "open, but dead" last Thursday, so the closing could have happened immediately following the 4th of July holiday.

We've reached out to a rep for BLVD for an official comment but in the meantime, it's worth noting that their Facebook page hasn't been updated since May 4, which as we've seen before, is pretty much a sure sign the place is closing. Another positive sign of closure? There is no mention of BLVD Cocktail Company on The LINQ's website.

UPDATE: A source familiar with The Linq tells us BLVD closed on July 5 and a new concept will open "soon."

Now You Can Tie One On With Jeff Civillico

July 7, 2015 at 8:49 PM | by | ()

We've made no bones about sharing our many Jeff Civillico "I heart you" moments. Like his charity work. That nearly-naked unicycle ride down the Strip. Heck, we even declared him our Fav Celeb of 2013 AND 2014. If you're already a fan (or have yet to discover this multi-talented slab of beefcake comedy-juggler), we've got the scoop on how you can party hearty (and work up a sweat) with the summer's hottest family entertainer. Despite the photo above, it isn't "50 Shades"-style (sorry).

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.

Have Wahlburgers Pulled Out of Las Vegas?

June 18, 2015 at 3:57 PM | by | ()

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 Markie, 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:

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."

Here's What to Expect From Inside The Spa at The LINQ

May 11, 2015 at 10:03 PM | by | ()

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.

Take That, Topgolf: Caesars Entertainment Seeks Hole-In-One, Too

April 1, 2015 at 5:11 PM | by | ()

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.

What The LINQ's Cabana Rooms Offer To Guests

Where: 3535 Las Vegas Boulevard [map], 89109
March 31, 2015 at 8:50 PM | by | ()

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.)

Service with a smile.

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:

We Kinda Don't Want To Tell You How Nice The LINQ's New Pool Is

Where: 3535 Las Vegas Boulevard [map], 89109
March 27, 2015 at 8:28 PM | by | ()

The LINQ Hotel, a rebranded Quad/IP, keeps pleasantly surprising us. And, we're by no means complaining.

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.
