On Friday, the Palazzo unveiled what it's calling Stadium Gaming in an area that used to house much of their video poker. Stadium Gaming is a new way to play table games. You and 23 friends can sit at a huge bank of machines and play both baccarat and roulette at the same time.

Palazzo is hard at work on its new show, PANDA!
Set to premier December 16, we’ve been wondering just what to expect since it was announced last month, especially since the tagline -- it’s a rescue story, a dream story, a Chinese story, an American story, a story for the entire world -- left us puzzled. Yesterday, we learned a bit more as Venetian hosted a press conference and preview of the upcoming production.
PANDA! will play in The Palazzo Theater which will have plenty of room for all of the kung-fu, acrobatic-heavy antics. Our first look took place in The Venetian’s Sands Showroom, though. We were hoping for a glimpse of the new stage which is supposed to feature gigantic, moving LED panels that create an effect similar to that of navigating a real-life video game. Instead, we were treated to performances from dancers, as well as two of the costumed pandas.

Vegas is no stranger to big fights, but since this one will be held in China, you'll have to settle for catching it on television as Manny Pacquiao takes on Brandon Rios at The Clash in Cotai November 23.
It is apparently going to be one of the biggest fights ever held in Asia and, for those looking to make a party of it, the Venetian and Palazzo will be hosting two exclusive screenings, one in the Venetian Ballroom and the other in Lagasse's Stadium.

Ok, you don't really need to bring ice skates with you to Vegas. We are a desert, after all. But, we're also a hospitality town... and we've totally taken care of that for you!
The Venetian and Palazzo have fired up their annual holiday tree of lights and will soon host Strip-side ice skating for all to enjoy for the third year in a row. Part of the resorts' Winter in Venice festivities, ice skating (ok, not real ice but close enough) will be offered November 18 through January 5. Hours will be daily from 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. Admission will be $14.95 and includes a skate rental. If you're a Nevada resident or a Grazie Players Club member, you can shave five bucks off that.

Hungry for new experiences in Vegas? So are we. But, as is often the case, we'll need to wait a while longer than what was once promised. Here are updates on four Vegas venues with TBA timelines:
B&B Burger and Beer (Venetian)
Having missed a once touted September debut, look for B&B Burger and Beer, coming soon to Venetian by Chef Mario Batali, to open next month. Under construction in the space formerly occupied by Rattlecan near the sportsbook, head here for -- now this is a wild guess -- burgers and beers.
DBGB Kitchen And Bar (Palazzo)
The second DBGB Kitchen and Bar outpost of Chef Daniel Boulud was due to open late this year, but now it sounds like 2014 is where it's at. When we asked a Venetian spokesperson for an updated timeline recently, we were told there wasn't one. Since Valentino, the eatery it will replace, just closed at the beginning of this month, we're going to go with early 2014 here. The first DBGB Kitchen can be found in NYC.
Pinkberry (750 S. Rampart)
A summer opening changed to by December and now, sadly, Las Vegas won't see its second yum-tastic Pinkberry location until 2014. A new inquiry to the froyo chain has provided a new opening month for its first off-Strip (find it in Summerlin's Boca Park) location -- late January.
Bier Garten (Plaza)

For reasons that escape us but are lucky for millions of others, coins and fountains go together like
sex and candy peanut butter and jelly. Maybe, it's because we hate carrying around spare change even though it would seemingly help scores of needy with three-legged dogs. In any case, people love to make a wish and toss their coins into any of a number of fountains around the world.
Locally, whether those light tosses and well-placed throws result in Las Vegas dreams come true or not, we can't say. But, we can confirm that your hope for luck benefits various charities, either way. Coins collected from the Erawan Shrine outside Caesars Palace are sent to various charities in Thailand. A couple years back, money pulled from the Bellagio fountains resulted in more than $12,000 being sent to Habitat for Humanity. The fountains inside Miracle Mile have benefited Opportunity Village and the Boys & Girls Club.

Surprisingly, this writer doesn't have a go to Italian joint on The Strip. Sure, there are spots that satisfy while others are fantastic but pricey, just another chain, or downright disappointing. When that Italian craving hits, we more often than not venture just off or way off Strip. So, when word of a new, original restaurant coming to Palazzo hit, we were optimistic but skeptical. Especially, when it would be taking over one of our go-to restaurants, First Food and Bar. The doubts only increased after learning the Italian vision was coming from a cake guy.
But, then one of our own stumbled into opening day at Buddy V's and, from the first moment we laid eyes on Buddy Valastro's Macaroni & Cheese Carbonara, a crush was born. But, before proclaiming that crush was amore, a proper dinner experience would be in order. Twist our arm.

The club that fought in court to stay open has closed, anyway.

The fine dining Bouchon has been a must-dine destination at the resorts for years just like the satellite crowd-pleaser Bouchon Bakery. But, recently (using that term very loosely), they've added not one but two additional Bouchon outposts. Or, rather Bouchon bakeries.

Just as we were questioning the continued popularity of all these
damn candy shops, we have a new one to report. But, this one has captured our heart instead of our cynicism by showing a shared affinity for a certain spiny desert inhabitant.
