Rumor has it the new Border Grill location inside Forum Shops at Caesars Palace could be opening as early as this afternoon for dinner service. They’re just waiting on the liquor license to be finalized. They've been doing mock service since last week in preparation for what a Caesars’ concierge said would be a “fall opening.”
Taking over the former space of P.J. Clarke's, the new location will have a bar area as well as a patio extending into the area in front of the restaurant. Sources closer to the action say all the restaurant should be open for lunch service tomorrow at the latest, if things go according to plan.

VegasChatter Facebook fan Taylor R. found a trademark filed by parent company Hakkasan for the name, Omnia Beach Club. A check also found a sister trademark for Omnia Day Club. But, while this week's news reports have highlighted the rooftop garden, nary a word has been uttered about a day life experience.

Hakkasan North will be here before we know it.
Okay, that's not really the new name of the club destined to replace PURE at Caesars Palace (that we know of), but it's now our designated placeholder. While still nameless (or, at the very least, still unannounced), the mega-club will be a sister to Hakkasan at MGM Grand. An extensive renovation of the space includes an expansion into the resort's old poker room.
We've been there before and can definitely confirm it's nigh impossible to ignore Rod's balls.
When Rod Stewart struts about on stage, he's been known to let his freak flag fly and show fans how adept he is with his balls. Wait, what? We're talking about his soccer balls, people! When he first started his Caesars Palace residency, the headliner we all think is sexy kicked his shows up a notch by filling the Colosseum with his balls. Even we hoped to reach out and grab one. None came close to our seats, though, despite Stewart's balls-to-the-
wall balcony high kicks. But, Page Six reports one fan was caught off guard and was smashed in the face so hard it broke his nose.

VegasChatter reader Bill G. posed some good questions about the new Bottomless Bubbles promotion at FIZZ. If you haven’t checked out the snazzy Caesars Palace champagne bar yet by Elton John's partner, David Furnish, this promotion may be a good way to test the
For $36 inclusive of tax and gratuity/service charge, guests can enjoy two hours of bottomless house champagne. The particular brand evidently varies from time to time, but if you’re not picky, you’re guaranteed all the champagne you can drink in one of two time slots: 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. or 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. nightly.

Caesars Palace, the sprawling compound that it is, has gotten a sports book facelift and is undergoing renovations to its food court, previously known as Cypress Street Marketplace. The former food court always had steady traffic and especially long lines whenever this writer wanted to pop in for her beloved BBQ pork sandwiches, mac & cheese and creamed spinach at the Bar BQ outpost.
Granted Mesa Grill, Rao’s and Nobu are also at Caesars and clearly in a different class, but the various Cypress Street offerings were solid food court options for those with less time or a smaller budget.

Soon, you won't have to trek all the way to the south Strip for crowd fave, Border Grill.
A forthcoming Forum Shops location just held a hiring call last weekend. That already told us a debut was soon, but VegasChatter reader @CCORD can pin it down a little more. He sent us a Border Grill newsletter that touts an official opening this October. Will a September soft opening be possible? Keep those fingers crossed as best you can around that marg; but, if not, October will be here before we know it.
You'll find Border Grill in the old PJ Clarke's space at the Forum Shops. The Mandalay Bay location will not be closing so don't panic about that.

The Strip of today is not the Strip of tomorrow. And, when we say tomorrow, we don't just mean the near|distant future, we mean tomorrow tomorrow.
On-going construction continues to bring us a slightly different Vegas each day. Last week, we checked up on six different projects, from the tear-down of a never-completed resort to a casino remodel. The 18 photos below, snapped by Greg C. and @paperposter, were captured between August 19 and August 22. So, yeah, expect five of these projects to be slightly more advanced today.
At The Harmon, the latest phase of a year-long demolition brings a crane and black barrier drapes. The condo-hotel never opened due to construction errors.

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.

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.

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.

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.
