Last weekend was one of several firsts for this duck. I joined a friend at the Treasure Island Buffet and Mystere, both of which I’ve somehow escaped in a decade in Vegas. The TI Buffet was a lot better than I expected. Yes, I admittedly went in with moderate to low expectations.
There were several surprises I haven’t encountered at other buffets. One was an interactive salad station. I’ve seen prepared salads offered as well as the standard build-you-own options but never a station that mixed up guest-selected items so everything could get a nice even distribution of dressing. As somebody who loves to start buffets with an elaborate salad, this was pretty exciting and tasty too. There was even sliced chicken so I could make a full-on cobb.

Just got back from Photo convention in Vegas..When did Vegas become a giant strip mall? Counted 3 Walgreens and 2 CVS between Luxor and T.I.— Artistic Impressions (@AiDancePhotos) March 4, 2015
We know! We've already found and inserted an obligatory Strip/strip mall reference so we can get it out of the way first.
Now then, if you were curious (and you are curious as you clicked the story, right?) we have updates on the newest pharmacies to line Las Vegas Boulevard.

March Madness is almost here so you know what time it is... party time!
Our annual rundown of March Madness viewing parties is here and can be found below. We'll update the list as we discover new offerings, but if you don't see the venue you're interested in right now, the best advice is simply to call them and inquire. Don't wait. The March Madness in Las Vegas Facebook group (which now boasts some 3,700 members) is already reporting parties at The Pub at Monte Carlo and Lagasse's Stadium at Venetian|Palazzo are sold out.

After a once planned debut of last September and a new target month of November that came and went, Treasure Island's self-dubbed retail-tainment center is still an empty shell today.
CVS has been the only announced tenant for the three-story addition. It will eventually cover the entire ground floor of the building, sprawling some 12,000-15,000 (figures have varied) square feet.

There's a lot of sh*t that happens in Vegas and not all of it can make it on our site. So, every Friday, we take note of some of the smaller announcements around town that may be of interest, too. Here's the rundown for the week of January 26:
March Madness: Yes, the Big Game isn't even over but folks have been talking about March Madness in Vegas since the end of last year. (Shout-out to the March Madness in Las Vegas Facebook group! Holla!) If you're dying for info, we can now share TI's plans. The resort will host basketball fans March 19-21 in its ballroom. Entry will be free and seating will be banquet-style (first come, first serve). There will be a cash bar, concessions and satellite betting stations so you won't miss a moment of action (unless you're in the restroom). Doors will open at 7:30 a.m. each day.

After news of not one, but two new resort fee hikes (if you haven't heard, read here and here) and the enacting of brand new resort fee in downtown this month, we were quite wary when an email from Treasure Island referencing the nightly charge hit our inbox. This time, however, we're much relieved to pass on a spot of good news. No, TI is not rescinding its resort fee, but it is making it more of a value and it is still optional, if you book your stay a certain way.

It’s been just over a year since TI abruptly pulled the plug on its outdoor pirate spectacle. Original plans called for a brief hiatus during construction on a shopping mall located adjacent to the show’s viewing area. Instead, in late 2013, TI informed the Sirens of TI cast the production would not be returning. Few expected such a drastic move. Even TI staffers anticipated a revised show to emerge once construction settled down. Now, we’ve learned that an upgraded show actually was in the works and that it could have been The Strip’s latest tech marvel.

After weeks of fielding queries, we finally have a roundup of Super Bowl -- sorry, BIG GAME -- parties in Las Vegas to share. Due to high demand, we're launching our annual guide now. Make sure to bookmark this page as we'll add events as they're uncovered/revealed. The newest parties will always be listed first so you won't have to do any unnecessary scanning. If you see one we don't have listed yet, email us the deets at firstname.lastname@example.org! Know that an event is sold out? We want to hear that, too!
Also, make sure to follow our friends and party experts, @VegasBigGame, on Twitter. If you've got a question about a party, they have an answer. Operated by a group of friends who've traveled to Vegas to view the Super Bowl for 17 years now (2015 will mark year #18), their Twitter account is an unmatched resource. They've already created this awesome infographic reviewing the parties of 2014.
If you’ve been under a rock the past week and are unaware, there is a growing list of ladies who are coming out to say the comedian and television star drugged and raped them. Initially, the Las Vegas Review-Journal had reported the performance was still on and the proceeds would go to charity. Now it is officially not happening.

Earlier this week, the resort requested permission from county officials to change the coming CVS into a stop that's "more like a grocery store than a pharmacy." Officials greenlighted the proposal without comment so more specifics are not known at the moment.

You’ll have fewer hours in the day to hop in the conga line and have shots poured into your mouth at Senor Frog's.
The drinking will start a bit later now at the TI establishment. The bar/restaurant has officially cut back its hours and now opens Sunday through Thursday at 2 p.m. and at noon Friday and Saturday. Previously, the party could begin at 11 a.m. daily. Closing time is still flexible so you’ve got the power to keep the party going on that end, at least.
