Is it a Bad Romance or the perfect New Year’s Eve pairing? Lady Gaga will share the stage with Tony Bennett at Cosmopolitan's Chelsea venue. It’s not the first time the duo has paired up, but it still seems a little odd, to this writer at least. Perhaps it’s “just the right amount of wrong.”
This announcement is hot on the heels of the release of the duo's new album, Cheek to Cheek. Tony might want to be careful about getting cheek-to-cheek with Mother Monster as her costumes often have sharp spikes. Wonder what Lady Gaga will be sporting on NYE: classy or campy?
Meyers' next Vegas visit will, hopefully, only involve his customary knocks on topical news and politics mixed with the humor of casual observations (see below for a bit on flying to and from Vegas, as well as drunken room service decisions.) Normally a regular at The Mirage, Meyers will perform at The Chelsea inside The Cosmopolitan Saturday, October 11 at 8 p.m. Tickets begin at $45 and can be purchased here.

Now that the weather is cooling down to a refreshing 95 degrees, food fests are popping up like crazy for the next two months. There will be big ones, small ones, fancy ones, and ones where the main attraction is White Castle. Out of these many, there is one that puts the rest to shame. That one is LUCKYRICE coming once again to The Cosmopolitan the evening of Saturday, October 4.

Quite possibly one of the strangest musical acts in pop culture since Ozzy ate a bat, Die Antwoord is difficult to describe. The facts are: They are South African, they are ghetto fabulous, and they are coming to the Boulevard Pool at The Cosmopolitan September 28.
Since their explosion on to the scene in 2009, Die Antwoord (which translates into "the answer") has popularized the niche genre of "zef-rave rap." (Zef is named after the Ford Zephyr which became synonymous with the African working class and is considered derogatory slang.) The group makes themselves into a parody of over-the-top "commodity rap" braggadocio while still sending their message about how absolutely bizarre it is live and be raised in South Africa.

Las Vegas' Restaurant Week is coming up shortly, and with it a chance for diners to loosen their belts a few notches. A spot out there you've been meaning to try? A dish you've been hearing so much about? Here are just a few of the best spots to make the most of this Restaurant Week now underway through August 28.
One of the best ways a Restaurant Week dining menu can benefit you is by putting a typically expensive restaurant back into your price range. For example, Estiatorio Milos at The Cosmopolitan is notoriously expensive, but their $50.14 three-course dinner is an incredible steal. Just the entree of grilled Mediterranean sea bass is knocking on the door of fifty, but with a salmon tartare and their famous grilled octopus as appetizers, this is a deal. A sommelier wine pairing with your courses is $30 more.

There are times when you sample a dish and taste everything that goes into the preparation. The time, effort, research, skill; you can practically hear that "ah, ha!" moment. Just absolute inspiration from step one to finish, that is how Chef De Cuisine Daniel Ontiveros brought the world the Escargot Pie ($19) at Comme Ça inside Cosmo.

Our long-running Sip or Pour series has covered some of the best bars in Vegas. Usually, we highlight two different types of bars, those ideal for a stop before you move on to the next one and those where you can chill all night long (the party in the street being optional). But, what about one ultimate night of fun and drinks
and more drinks and maybe some shots? Here's how we would spend one epic night in Vegas. If you follow in our footsteps, make sure to cab it or bring along the ultimate designated driver. (And, in some cases, it's just a short walk!)
Spiegelworld has once again become the talk of the town, but this time, not for its masterful productions but rather for what is happening behind the curtain. The startling headline above is straight from a just-released announcement that alleges The Cosmopolitan sabotaged the much raved about, but recently closed Vegas Nocturne production. Here is the full press release, word for word:

Casino visits can be personal or impersonal experiences, depending on how you attempt to craft your time. At places like Cosmopolitan, you can grab a slice from Secret Pizza and simply go about your business or you can chat up your pizza peddler, make friends in the line and bring them and your meal down the hall to the common area outside P3Studio.
If you head over to the Cosmo this week, and we really think you should, make sure you visit P3Studio for a highly personal experience you’re likely not to get anywhere else in the world. Well-respected artists from the local Las Vegas art world, Todd Duane Miller and JW Caldwell, are P3’s current artists-in-residence. The duo has created Face 2 Face, a truly interactive and immersive photography and fine art mashup.

iHeart Radio. Amplified. Desert Hops. Route 91. Life is Beautiful.
Music lovers. Grape lovers. Beer lovers. Downtown lovers.
No matter your tastes or your interests, it seems as if Las Vegas will have a festival just for you before year's end. And, we've three more options for you to ponder while trying to decide which events are can't miss and which should be shuffled over to the 'maybe next time' pile. We've already mentioned a few here on Chatter, but have compiled them all together in an at-a-glance format before. The three fests we've yet to mention have been highlighted in blue.

If Seinfeld’s Festivus didn’t refer to a specific day that’s more or less become an accepted parody holiday, it would surely refer to this third week of July where more Las Vegas festivals were announced than new Weird Al songs.
Almost true. We’ve known about the lineup for late October’s Life is Beautiful Festival for a bit now, but in the past week, details have emerged on two popular returning festival events and one brand new one coming to Sin City this fall.
This is Vegas. Things open and close. And, oftentimes, both are greeted with the same level of enthusiasm. This closure, however, may go in the VegasChatter annals as the shittiest.
Saturday, Vegas Nocturne -- the entertainment portion of Rose.Rabbit.Lie.'s "grand social experiment" -- marked its final performance. Rumors of its closure were already in the wind so it wasn't a surprise. It was, however, a disappointment of horror scream proportions, especially to those who had experienced it and recognized it among the best of Las Vegas.
