We're not forgetting that dirty about face regarding resort fees, but this is helping us to be slightly ok with them now.

If you've been waiting.. and waiting.. and waiting.. and waiting.. and, well you get the picture.. for Slotzilla, you should probably back out of this story now. The latest rumor on Fremont Street won't make you happy.
Where once we heard this weekend could.. possibly.. see the return of zipliners to downtown, we now have a new rumbling to report. Rumors that Slotzilla won't open until at least April now. This is by no means official. Slotzilla stopped giving an opening timeline long ago. It's also been silent on Twitter of late. Its last tweet was sent on January 29.

Rumor has had it that the Spider-Man musical was headed to Venetian for some time now. We can't confirm that (at least not right this minute), but it's now official that the Broadway show is, indeed, headed to Vegas.
National news outlets are reporting that SPIDER-MAN: TURN OFF THE DARK, "the most expensive theatrical production in history" at $75 mil, will shutter in New York come early January, but will arrive in Vegas in 2015. This according to the Wall Street Journal which got it straight from one of the show's producers:

P.J. Clarke's is now P.J. closed in the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace. Out of (seemingly) nowhere last week, the restaurant chain with locations in New York, D.C., and Sao Paulo closed its doors for good here in Vegas.
The outside "patio" area is now gone and the window displays have vanished. The name above the door is all that remains of the seafood and burger bar.

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 have it on very good authority that Starwood is interested in LVH which was ditched by Hilton in January 2012. And, it's so interested that reps have been in town and on-site checking it out in recent weeks.
This past weekend, VegasChatter reader Ryan H. shared his discoveries after a July visit to the property:

Vegas' only year-round haunt could cease to exist this week, right as the Halloween season begins.
Rumors of the imminent closure of Goretorium have been swirling since mid-September with VegasChatter readers Alice U.R. and Michael P. informing us that word on the street was that a shutter would happen before October 31. And, maybe even as soon as today.
Over the weekend, bride-to-be Andrea V. shared the news that Goretorium's legal team has warned her that her October 18 wedding at the haunted house likely wouldn't happen. A letter from Larson & Zirzow, dated September 27, 2013, states:
Does Las Vegas have one (or more) too many comedy clubs?
A VegasChatter tipster tells us that Big Al's Comedy -- which jumped from The Orleans to its sister property, Gold Coast, back in July -- only has one more week of laughs in it. The comedy club, featuring rotating headliners, will reportedly fold on September 30 after one more final weekend of jokes.
