Please.. oh, please.. oh, please.. let this be true so we can all move on with our writing lives.

August 16, 2013 at 6:13 PM | by | Comments (0)

The Vegas PR machine is furiously churning today, firing out a slew of press announcements. Here's what you need to know:

●Remember two weeks ago when we told you Aria's handbag shop, Papillon, had closed? That's now press release official. Aria says Hour Passion, a watch boutique by the Swatch Group, will open this fall in its place.

More Poker Room Updates To Share.. Repeat: More Poker Room Updates

August 14, 2013 at 6:02 PM | by | Comments (6)

With the 2013 World Series of Poker's Main Event now airing weekly for two hours on ESPN and a 24/7 Poker Entertainment Network scheduled to debut in December, one could be tempted to say that interest in the game is up this week. Patrons of at least one Las Vegas casino may beg to differ after the closure of its decent sized poker room.

In what seems to becoming a monthly trend we again poke our heads around Vegas card rooms to stay up-to-date on the poker scene.

Meat Loaf Promises to Be 'Rare' for New Planet Hollywood Gig

July 31, 2013 at 7:09 PM | by | Comments (0)

It's finally official. Meat Loaf is coming to Planet Hollywood starting September 26 in the PH Showroom. (Even though we've been reporting on a Meat Loaf residency in Vegas since March. ahem)

The Grammy winning rocker will do a mini-residency of 18 shows that will be held on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. But, this won't be a stadium-type of show. Instead, Meat Loaf plans on using the intimate theater space for a "rare stripped down deconstruction" of his greatest hits including, “I Would Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That)” as well as “Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad” and “Paradise by the Dashboard Light." Rare and deconstructed? Not sure that's what we want from our Meat Loaf, but we're still ready to eat him up.

LVH Poker Room Opens, Closes Week Later... And Reopens Next Week?

July 23, 2013 at 8:55 PM | by | Comment (1)

That was quick.

That newly opened poker room... err, poker pit... at LVH that debuted on July 12 has already folded. Temporarily, at least. It made it one full week before shutting down... for retooling. Poker newsie @WriterJen tweeted that the room closed suddenly last Friday and expects it to re-open in one week.

Pokin' Around Card Rooms

July 12, 2013 at 4:16 PM | by | Comments (0)

Today marks day four of the World Series of Poker Main Event as 6,352 players continue to play down to one. That's down from last year's count of 6,598, but still good enough for a $8,359,531 first place payout. And, since we're sitting here writing this story, we're obviously not in the running for even one dollar of that. Rather than waiting for next year, we started poking around for news on poker rooms elsewhere in the city.

Meat Loaf September Residency Is, Indeed, Headed To Planet Hollywood

July 11, 2013 at 9:35 PM | by | Comments (3)

Richard Lane (pours some out) told us all the details a month ago. Now, the pieces are slowly falling into place.

Yesterday, Planet Hollywood announced the coming closure of Peepshow. Today, it was announced that RockTellz & CockTails will take its place in September.

Rewind to June 5 when we confirmed Meat Loaf was headed to Vegas for a six-week residency beginning September 25. The name of the show mentioned? Rocktails and Cocktails. We like this re-tooled version better. We wonder if RockTellz & CockTales was ever considered. Hmm. But, back to our dot-to-dot. The rumored venue we'd heard last month? Yep. Planet Hollywood.

Those Escalators At The Strip and Tropicana May Actually Work One Day

July 9, 2013 at 1:04 PM | by | Comments (7)

Raise your hand if you've ever rode a working escalator at the corner of Tropicana and Las Vegas Boulevard. Pick a corner, any corner. Bueller? For the longest time, we chalked up the perennial "sorry, folks, escalator's closed" to our bad timing. Not once have we seen them operating. And, come to think of it, never did we see anyone working on them, either.

Chances are you've schlepped your way up the stairs, too, when navigating this intersection. But, that may soon change. Yesterday, the Las Vegas Sun reported that the Transportation Board has approved a contract worth nearly $700,000 for design services addressing the removal and replacement of 16 escalators here. (16!)
