The Quad's website still heralds it as coming soon in late 2013, but we don't need a trip to
Flavor Town The Strip to tell you that Guy Fieri's forthcoming restaurant is another Vegas delay in the works.
Also still in the works? Its name. There have been reports that say it's Guy's American Kitchen like his NYC outpost, but a Caesars rep confirmed to us there is no official name yet. They hope, however, to announce one next month.

Look what's flying high at The Linq now!
After showing you the first photos of the High Roller's cabins on Monday, the very first pod was attached yesterday and hoisted to the top this morning.
Each cab weighs in at 44,000 pounds and will hold 40 passengers. There will be 28 pods in all. It will take two months to add them all to the wheel.

For being one of the most derided hotel-casinos on The Strip, The Quad sure has lots of folks buzzin'. But, per usual, not in any way executives would appreciate.
As Vital Vegas puts it, it's the Vegas rumor that won't die -- a name change, again, for Imperial Palace. IP became The Quad almost a year ago, but execs were likely surprised by how quickly and how hard people began to hate on the name. A VegasChatter reader reached out to us earlier today and said that employees are now being told about the possibility of a name change:

While a new round of Vegas delays abound, we hope that's not the case for this next bit of joyous news.
We have it on very good authority that O'Sheas will return by New Year's Eve. Yes, if things go as planned, you could be back in O'Sheas -- albeit a completely new O'Sheas
buried in the heart of The Linq -- in nine weeks or less.

As much as we love to scoff about The Quad's remodel (we kid because we love.. or something like that), it's been
pretty fairly serious about bringing the new. (Although, we'd all love to see that happen with its rooms more than anything else right now.)
Once known as the Imperial Palace, a renovation has brought many changes to the aging hotel-casino including a new name, a (mostly) new facade (seen above), a remodeled and expanded casino floor, a new valet entrance, and a coming soon(ish) restaurant by Guy Fieri. More recently, a new wave of unannounced change brought the closure of the Quad's buffet earlier this month. But, we've now found that it's not the only closure to report.

We at VegasChatter give Jeff Civillico a whole lotta love. We named him one of the hunkiest headliners in Vegas. We gave you tips on how to go as Jeff for Halloween. We even mention his show Jeff Civillico: Comedy In Action from time to time, but never in a full review. And, that’s our bad. We should have made the show a higher priority, because we like it THAT MUCH. Long before this writer was writing for VegasChatter, I’d already seen Jeff’s show too many times to count. Heck, i even saw the show before it was a show. Sort of.

What was a Vegas rumor on Tuesday is now confirmed.

We wrote this straight from the 70s buffet off back in 2010, but some brave souls like VegasChatter fan Henry M. continue to venture inside and sample its fare.
For Henry, trying out The Quad's Emperor's Buffet was solely a Buffet of Buffets challenge. He and a friend were determined to eat at all eight buffets in a single day, making our five nights at Gold Coast's buffet seem like child's play. Henry called the all-you-can-eat dining spot the "worst" he's ever seen, offering food he described as looking like it had been reheated again and again over several days. The photo below shows some of the choices he was faced with after arriving around 11 a.m.:
We labeled it as the worst hotel in Vegas three years ago (and haven't been inclined to bestow anyone else with that honor since) so we're never surprised when we receive a reader email bemoaning their stay at the
Imperial Palace Quad.
Our own @sammasseur labeled his stay there as a CSI meets Goretorium and, now, two other VegasChatter members have shared their experiences. So, zap some popcorn, turn down the
lights brightness of your screen, and get ready to be horrified. We start with this frightful tale from Tony:

It's another day for The Quad and The Linq, which means a few new things to look at and report. This writer walked through last week and again this morning, and I have some interesting tidbits to share.
Let's start with what still hasn't been touched. Though it's painful to say, unfortunately, the construction fairy didn't wiggle her nose to renovate the rooms overnight. While the rooms are quickly working their way up to the top of the to-do list, we're still left waiting with bated breath. On the positive side, if the Goretorium does wind up closing before Halloween maybe the Quad could get into the spirit, too.

As a Facebook user recently penned, "The Quad is starting to look better and better..." And, it's true. Well, as long as you continue to ignore the rooms. And, some of the exterior. But, we digress.
On Friday, The Quad came that much closer to completing renovations to its casino, opening almost the entire gaming floor to guests. If you've already been through the new section of the casino which debuted back in March, you'll find a continuation of the same bright red signature hue accented with multi-colored, multi-patterned carpeting in the older, remodeled sections. Update: Our Quad quy, erm, guy begs our apologies and says renovations are not quite 100 percent complete. He relays that a few more sections and slot banks still need to be brought online.
