Hey, Hey, Hey, What Rhymes With Here's Where To Watch Fireworks In Vegas On New Year's Eve?

December 27, 2013 at 5:40 PM | by | Comment (1)

It's a question we're asked every December and, we get it, it's an important one -- where can we see fireworks on New Year's Eve? Just standing on The Strip is a good idea, but where is an important factor, especially with towering resorts all around.

This year, just like the past two, fireworks will launch from the rooftops of seven resorts: Stratosphere, Treasure Island, the Venetian, Caesars Palace, Planet Hollywood, Aria, and MGM Grand. The entire production will last eight minutes and 23 seconds.

We don't know about you, but we'd take this over being Reviv'd by IV, any day.

JuiceFarm is now open inside Palazzo, occupying the space where Sweet Surrender once stood. It's believed to be the first dedicated juice bar on The Strip. (If you know differently, tout your Vegas know-how below.)

Throwing Down At Two More Primo Bars

December 26, 2013 at 2:16 PM | by | Comments (0)

Now, a new dose of Sip or Pour providing awesome drinking spots on The Strip. Keeping it simple, here's two bars that'll either let you sip on something special or pour enough to get you drunk the party started.

Sip

For a relaxed drinking experience, make sure to drop by Aria. One of the Strip's "newer" casinos, Aria always feels elegant and that feeling carries over well into Deuce Lounge on the casino floor.

Deuce acts as a lounge, bar and snazzy gaming room. There is everything one could ask for -- dim lights, leather couches, solid music and, the best part of all, unique, tasty drinks. The menu, while not huge, offers signature cocktails that don't disappoint. Namesake martini, The Deuce-tini, is an interesting tequila-based mix of elderflower liquor, lemon juice, egg whites and agave nector. Thankfully, I didn't read the ingredients list until after I tried this one as it's not a combination that sounded appealing, but it surprised by being a gentle yet strong drink.

What You'll Find At The Newly Opened B&B Burger & Beer (Hint: It's Aptly Named)

Gone are the graffiti-covered walls where the Rattlecan burger joint used to reside at the Venetian. In their place, you'll find a bright, contemporary and very orange burger joint -- B&B Burger and Beer.

The new restaurant opened its doors to the public over the weekend after missing a once hoped for September debut. Brought to us by restauranteurs Mario Batali, Joe Bastianich and Lidia Bastianich -- who together operate B&B Hospitality Group -- you can definitely take the eatery at its word as to what you'll find inside.

Marveling At The New And Improved Madame Tussauds

Where: 89109

This VegasChatter writer has never been inside of a wax museum. But, I have read more comic books than, well, books. I knew a bit about Madame Tussauds, though, and -- after hearing about a new Marvel Comics experience -- I figured I would check it out for myself.

Upon entry to Madame Tussauds, you’re greeted by Joan Rivers. It fooled me. At a glance, even knowing that I was in a wax museum, I thought Joan Rivers was actually in the museum. In retrospect, her wax doppelganger is probably holding up better than the real deal.

Thus began the fun.

Earlier this month, the Venetian unveiled a monster of a slot machine with the Titan 360. Now, the Palazzo introduces a humongous addition to its casino.

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.

A Sneak Peek At Palazzo's PANDA!

Where: 3325 Las Vegas Blvd. South [map], 89109

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.
