Itís 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 thereís never a lull in the action of 12 football games, itís 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:
Breakfast dishes, served from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m., include Dragonís Breath Chili Cornbread Benedict, Chicken Fried Bacon Biscuits & Gravy and Maple Bacon French Toast. While those are all interesting options, we recommend the Carne Asada Chilaquiles.
No one will be sad to see the Quad name disappear as it was pretty much universally reviled, but we're not totally in love with The LINQ, either. We understand why, but we're getting a bit tired of explaining ourselves around town. No, not the Signature hotel, the air terminal. No, not the Public House at Luxor, the one in Venetian. No, not Downtown as in Vegas, but as in Summerlin. Let's go to the Linq. No, the mall, not the hotel. Oy.

TAG Sports Bar & Lounge at The LinQuad Hotel may be the best spot on the Vegas Strip to experiment and enjoy new and different imported and craft beer. But, it's best not to forget it's general purpose as a sports bar and lounge.
Located on the southern side of the casino (the one closest to the Linq mall), there are TVs throughout the bar as well as different gaming options. And now, just in time for football season, a mobile sports betting window that's open Thursday through Sunday. Instead of making the 45-second walk to place your bets at the sportsbook you don't need to leave the bar, at all.

The Strip of today is not the Strip of tomorrow. And, when we say tomorrow, we don't just mean the near|distant future, we mean tomorrow tomorrow.
On-going construction continues to bring us a slightly different Vegas each day. Last week, we checked up on six different projects, from the tear-down of a never-completed resort to a casino remodel. The 18 photos below, snapped by Greg C. and @paperposter, were captured between August 19 and August 22. So, yeah, expect five of these projects to be slightly more advanced today.
At The Harmon, the latest phase of a year-long demolition brings a crane and black barrier drapes. The condo-hotel never opened due to construction errors.

Guy Fieriís Vegas Kitchen & Bar at The Quad (soon-to-be The Linq Hotel) is inviting guests to head to Flavortown a little earlier starting today, August 1. It now offers breakfast service from 8 a.m. until 11 a.m. daily. The restaurantís overall hours also will change to 8 a.m. to 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday and 8 a.m. to midnight Sunday through Thursday. (Hours were from 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. daily.)
Though existing dessert menus items like Mexican Churros and SíMores Monte Cristo sound like they would translate to breakfast well, the menu will feature new items that keep to the ďGuy styleĒ with fun names and signature items like his Dragonís Breath Chili. Breakfast items will include:
We all love Vegas, but that's not to say that some things don't get under our skin. That's why we created Vegas Rants to let you get it all off your chest, heave a big sigh and move on to the next fun thing.
Best rate guarantees aren't anything new for the hospitality world. But, when they're offered, you pretty much expect them to work as implied. Finding there are strings attached isn't unexpected, either. Finding there are so many strings that it becomes impossible to secure the cheaper rate, however, almost makes you want to unpack your bags and call the whole trip off. This is the frustration recently experienced by VegasChatter fan Joe M. who found the only thing guaranteed by Caesars Entertainment's Best Rate Guarantee program was a headache.
It may not look like it from The Strip just yet, but The Linq Hotel is already starting to make a splash in Las Vegas. An on-going metamorphosis of the soon-to-be renamed Quad (which was Imperial Palace before that) is refocusing on the hotel-casino's exterior.
After receiving a tip from VegasChatter friend @paperposter, VC photographer Greg Clarke visited the center Strip property to capture photos of the changes now underway. Greg reports all the balcony walls have been removed from the rear of the hotel and that work is now taking place on the center portion of the building that faces the pool. Here's a rendering of the finished project:
A couple of weeks ago, the a long-rumored change in†hotel names came true for†The Quad†which will become†The Linq Hotel†as of October 30. Hidden deep in the press release was the fact the renamed hotel-casino would have free, property-wide WiFi. That includes all common areas, hotel rooms and on the gaming floor. Everywhere. The Linq The Linq Hotel will be the first Caesars Entertainment hotel in Las Vegas to offer free property-wide WiFi. Back in February, we reported that Caesars would be rolling out free WiFi for all its properties throughout the year.
mall†promenade already has free WiFi so this will allow guests to stay connected seamlessly between the two.

Caesars Entertainment has taken to the casino in an effort to drum up business for the High Roller observation wheel. Last week, Flamingo, The Quad and other Caesars casinos began issuing free High Roller tickets to any player that received a suited 21 at the blackjack tables. That means any time the first two cards dealt to a player are†an Ace and a 10, Jack, Queen or King in the same suit (diamonds, hearts, clubs, spades), the player would receive a coupon for a free ticket to ride. The coupons†are non-transferable (in theory, not so much in application) so whoever the ticket is†made out to has to use it.

When corporations write press releases and marketing materials, they often focus on what matters most to them. They're sometimes more concerned with filling a buzzword quota more than focusing on what makes the product, in this case a bar, unique. The first paragraph of the description of†TAG Bar at The Quad†(soon-to-be The LINQ Hotel) fits that bill and it's not right.
TAG Lounge and Bar in Las Vegas revolutionizes the traditional gaming floor into a state-of-the-art interactive gaming lounge with cutting-edge digital casino games, touchscreen table top gaming units and a unique hologram blackjack table, as well as a beverage list of more than 300 beers and sports from around the world, streaming 24 hours.

Another long-time rumor has become reality.
Caesars Entertainment has announced that The Quad, as part of more than $200 million worth of additional renovations, will emerge in November as LINQ Hotel & Casino, capitalizing -- of course -- on the adjacent LINQ shopping, entertainment and dining district (read: outdoor mall) next door which culminates in the soaring High Roller observation wheel.
