Eataly’s sixth U.S. location opened at Park MGM just as 2018 came to an end. The 40,000-square-foot culinary destination is located directly on the Las Vegas Strip and will serve as Park MGM’s main entrance.
Eataly is a vibrant space full of unique food counters, bars, cafés and dining experiences offering traditional, authentic Italian food. This is the venue inside Park MGM that I’ve been most looking forward to. Eataly is more than just a food court with different Italian dining options.

Upgrades coming to the Cosmopolitan in 2019

Tuesday, 08 January 2019 by Blog Category: Everything Vegas.

It feels like just yesterday that The Cosmopolitan opened in Las Vegas. Nope, the luxury casino-resort opened in December of 2010. There’s a long history for this relatively young casino on the Vegas Strip. At first, The Cosmopolitan marketed themselves as a unique property. While the right amount of wrong was fun for guests, it didn’t produce the revenue needed to make the property profitable.

Dining for less in Vegas

Friday, 14 December 2018 by Blog Category: Everything Vegas and Food.

Prices at the newest bars and restaurants on the Vegas Strip haven’t been “cheap” in years. However, the inflated prices from the 1990’s haven’t stopped and sticker shock is real. There’s nothing like being hit with a $6 price tag for a large iced coffee before you can open your eyes in the morning. Eesh.

What to expect at Bellagio Las Vegas

Thursday, 13 December 2018 by Blog Category: Everything Vegas and Food.

A small group of friends recently stayed at Bellagio for a short vacation. I spent a lot of time at the casino-resort for the first time since it opened. Even though it’s only 20 years old, it feels as if Bellagio has been around forever. It is still one of the most classic (and classy) resorts in Las Vegas.
