Celine Dion Cancels All Performances Through March 2015

Where: 3570 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109
August 13, 2014 at 12:46 PM | by | Comments (2)

After a spate of recently cancelled performances, Las Vegas' long-reining lady of song, Celine Dion, has officially struck all performances from her schedule; and, not just at Caesars' Colosseum, but everywhere, including an upcoming tour of Asia.

Celine, who has been battling a throat aliment, cites her health as well as her husband's (Rene Angelil had a cancerous tumor removed last year) as impetus for the move. A press release states she will "postpone all her show business activities indefinitely, in order to focus 100% of her attention on her husband Rene, their family and recent health issues." The couple have three young children, aged 13 and three-year-old twins.

Entertainment Roundup: Still The One, But Not For Long To Georgia On Our Mind

July 21, 2014 at 8:09 PM | by | Comments (3)

The Vegas PR machine was in high gear today cranking out entertainment news from up and down The Strip. From the coming end of Twain's resident twang to another new show for the Riv, here's a roundup of what's closing and what's just ahead:

Shania Twain will stop stealing the limelight from Celine Dion by year's end. (Twain was recently named best resident performer by a Vegas publication so you know sh*t was getting serious.) Her two-year residency at Caesars Palace will officially mark its last night December 13. Tickets for the final 16 shows -- ten dates in October and six in December -- are on sale now. She's also here for a short run beginning tomorrow. Catch Shania July 22-23 and 25-26 if you can't wait that long to see her feel like a woman. Tickets begin at $55.

Absinthe's Melody Sweets Takes Her Burlesque Back To The Old West

Where: 3570 S Las Vegas Blvd. [map], 89109

If you just can’t get enough of the Green Fairy from Absinthe, get excited to see sultry star Melody Sweets in a different type of costume. On July 22, grab your boots and spurs and hit the tent in front of Caesars Palace for Melody Sweets’ Wild Wild West Burlesque Show.

The show (and music video premiere) features Absinthe’s vocalist as well as other cast members from the show including The Gazillionaire and Penny as Cowboy Summerlin Sam and his trusty steed, Phallus. It would be hard to imagine raunchier, rowdier dialogue than the two exchange in Absinthe, but if Penny’s character is named Phallus, our guess is this will be at least equally over-the-top.

Which Vegas Buffet Will Be The First To Have This Self-Serve Beer Vending Machine?

July 11, 2014 at 12:56 PM | by | Comments (5)

Gobble 'til you wobbleguzzle 'til you topple, or both?

People love themselves a buffet in Las Vegas. Piling all the food you can eat onto plate after plate is an obsession. Years ago the $1.99 buffet was the bee's knees. Today, you're not going to find that same kind of deal. At many of the new buffets you’re looking at a more gourmet experience in a venue that cost millions to build.

Gobble 'Til Ya Wobble: The Three Best Buffets in Vegas

July 8, 2014 at 8:03 PM | by | Comments (12)

If you ask most what the defining cuisine is for our lovely metropolis, you will start a fierce debate on whether that lofty crown goes to steakhouses or buffets. To the rest of the world, and for good reason, Las Vegas is the city of buffets.

In fact, the modern concept of an "all-you-can-eat" buffet is said to have been created in 1950s Las Vegas by Herbert "Herb" Cobb McDonald, a publicity and entertainment manager. He is also credited with cementing Vegas as a national convention destination, the key to early Vegas success. In the 1956 novel The Muses of Ruin, William Pearson wrote in apt words his feelings on the new phenomenon:

At midnight every self-respecting casino premičres its buffet — the eighth wonder of the world, the one true art form this androgynous harlot of cities has delivered herself of.... We marvel at the Great Pyramids, but they were built over decades; the midnight buffet is built daily. Crushed-ice castles and grottoes chill the shrimp and lobster. Sculptured aspic is scrolled with Paisley arabesques. They are, laid out with reverent artistry: hors d'oeuvres, relish, salads, and sauces; crab, herring oyster, sturgeon, octopus, and salmon; turkey, ham, roast beef, casseroles, fondues, and curries; cheeses, fruits and pastries. How many times you go through the line is a private matter between you and your capacity, and then between your capacity and the chef's evil eye.

Today, the Vegas buffet has evolved into a generally homogeneous entity, but there are a few that go above and beyond the norm.

The Best Late Night Eats In Vegas

July 2, 2014 at 5:25 PM | by | Comments (17)

A common predicament in Las Vegas is the necessity of a late night meal. Luckily, in this 24-hour town, you are not limited to Waffle House (not that we have one). Though, there’s nothing wrong with Waffle House, amirite, East Coasters? With so many options, it may be difficult to choose which restaurant should satisfy your cravings after midnight. Here are a few of our favorites:

Secret Pizza”: A hallway nestled next to Blue Ribbon Sushi at The Cosmopolitan, this "hidden" pizza joint serves late night pie until 5 a.m. It’s the perfect spot to grab a slice after an all-night dance party at Marquee or a concert at Boulevard Pool. Especially delicious is the white pizza, which is making this writer wish she hadn’t chosen to pen this story around lunch time. The pepperoni and the meatball are also solid options.

When we're asked to recommend nightclubs in Vegas, PURE is never first to mind. (Or, second. Or, third. Or... you get the point.)

So, it's probably no surprise that PURE is in its final days nights at Caesars Palace. The Las Vegas Sun reports that PURE will close at the end of the month for a full remodel while the Review-Journal cites a more specific May 26 closing date.

What? MR CHOW never opened at The Harmon? Yes, sillies, we know that! We were just testing you. Again. Although that's clearly never going to happen, we won't have to travel to Beverly Hills, Malibu, New York City, Miami or London to CHOW down (hee) come early next year. That's when Caesars Palace will host the brand's seventh location. Said Mr. Chow on MR CHOW:
