What About The Monorail Station at SLS?

April 18, 2014 at 9:23 PM | by | Comments (7)

While SLS Las Vegas will be known for its clubs, restaurants and, perhaps, its casino, it's easy to forget the coming-soon resort will also boast 80,000 square feet of "flexible event sites."

As much as it's being thought of as a party resort, SLS Las Vegas will also take care of business with 30,000 of dedicated meeting space and a 9,000 square foot ballroom. (The rest of the 80,000 number will be provided through the many venues that can serve dual purposes like its restaurants and clubs.)

What's A Wolf Pack To Do In The Daytime?

March 26, 2014 at 12:32 AM | by | Comments (8)

If youíre coming to Las Vegas for a bachelor party, chances are youíve already got your evening plans set. Assuming you actually wake up during the daylight hours, what is a group of guys to do? This was the question posed by VegasChatter Twitter follower @sahilsharmauk.

For one, many strip clubs are open 24 hours so that doesnít necessarily have to be relegated to the evening hours. If you want to get the strip club affect and still get your vitamin D, Sapphire Pool, the new(ish) dayclub of the famous gentlemenís club, opens for the season May 2.

VegasChatter Questions: Where Are They Now?

March 19, 2014 at 5:02 PM | by | Comments (2)

Time for another VegasChatter Question! This one comes from Karen who needs help finding that which has been lost. Do you have a question about Vegas, too? We bet you do. Send it to us and you just might see it here on VegasChatter!

Change is inevitable in Las Vegas which is why we try to keep track of sh*t so that you don't miss a thing. Shops open and close, shows move and hotel rooms remodel. But sometimes we get attached to a particular employee whose service is spectacular, personality is pleasant or whose mere presence brings good luck. That sweet little lady in one of the Caesars gift shops (technically just inside the Forum Shops) that remembers us from our last visit over a year ago? We'd be heartbroken if she wasn't there next time. The dancing woman that shows up at Nine Fine Irishmen each and every night? She's as much a fixture as the Guinness taps. If Hans suddenly got camera shy, we just might die.

Classic Vegas Weddings, Vow Renewals Serve Up Cliched Fun

March 13, 2014 at 12:22 PM | by | Comments (8)

A loyal VegasChatter reader is coming to town and hunting for a good place to renew his wedding vows. This got us thinking about the perfect Vegas-y place to tie (or re-tie) the knot. This writer happened to have a lovely ceremony at A Little White Wedding Chapel where she married a Capriottiís sandwich. (Really.)

This venue proved to be a classic Vegas wedding chapel complete with the obligatory Elvis and cheesy outdoor gazebo. A bonus for couples who donít bring the whole family: you can stream your wedding live on the Internet so friends and family can join in. There are two different Elvis packages featuring a ceremony in a vintage pink Cadillac and tunes from The King himself (well, the next best thing). Packages range from $55-$1,179.

Red Rock Working on Dishing Up New Dining

Where: 11011 W Charleston Blvd [map], 89135
March 7, 2014 at 9:31 PM | by | Comments (5)

Time for another VegasChatter Question! This one comes from Edward R. who wanted to know what was up at Red Rock after two recent restaurant closures. He also wondered where he could find good sushi now in that neck of the woods. Do you have a question about Vegas, too? We bet you do. Send it to us and you just might see it here on VegasChatter!

Summerlin residents and other visitors to Red Rock Casino are lamenting the loss of two restaurants from the resortís dining scene. LBS burger joint closed its doors just after the Super Bowl, taking with it the only dry-aged burgers in town. Then last week another domino fell as Hachi, loved for its happy hour specials, closed as well.

What About The Cromwell's Casino?

Where: 89109
February 24, 2014 at 1:51 PM | by | Comments (2)

Without fail, it's the question that always comes up whenever we write about The Cromwell -- will there be a casino?

The answer is yes, but the fact that folks feel compelled to ask says a lot about the state of gaming these days. It likely also says a lot that reps for The Cromwell are talking about everything but the casino, placing the focus on accommodations as well as their marquee chef Giada de Laurentiis and their day and night life venues by Drai's.

VegasChatter Questions: When You're Looking For Something New To Do

December 23, 2013 at 6:18 PM | by | Comments (2)

Time for another VegasChatter Question! Do you have a question about Vegas, too? We bet you do. Send it to us and you just might see it here on VegasChatter!

Today's VC Question comes from Jason S. who is planning a January trip with his wife and friends. As a four-time Las Vegas visitor he's already "seen all the shows, street performers (bums) and... some "off the path" places like the Pinball Hall of Fame and car museum at The Quad." All the shows? So, Jason is dedicated and deep-pocketed.

He and his wife are "not very big gamblers" and, therefore, looking to find "something NEW to do...Hidden gems, stuff that only locals would know." Well, he's come to the right place. Because we here at the VegasChatter offices constantly find awesome sh*t that we choose not to write about and keep to ourselves. We kid. We kid! (A little.)

Want To Know What's Going On With MGM Grand's Marquee?

Where: 3799 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109

Enquiring minds have wanted to know for weeks, what they heck is going on with the MGM Grand's marquee and why is it taking so long?

We reached out to MGM Resorts for an answer, and got one. And, the response is a lot. The giant green marquee is "going greener, with the installation of new cooling systems that will reduce its cooling needs by 26 tons -- a substantial energy savings." And, that's not all:

When Your Winnings Are Taxed But You Don't Live In America, Eh

September 27, 2013 at 5:56 PM | by | Comments (15)

We all have our favorite fantasy of what we'll do when we hit that one lucky jackpot. For some, it's shopping sprees or fancy cars while others take a more pragmatic approach. Either way, Uncle Sam has no problem asking for his share. But, what if he comes a'calling and your not American? We got this email from reader Al K. asking how to go about looking for a refund.

I just returned from Vegas and had a great time. I also hit 2 Royal Flush jackpots on quarter machines. The first was at Caesars for $1,000 and the second was at Main Street Station for $1,226 which brings me to the question of where do I get the proper tax forms to request a refund. Iím Canadian and the casino took off the 30% so Iíd like to try and get it back. I've heard it can be a headache but I'd like to try anyways.
