So, you’ve been to Las Vegas a lot over the years and you’re looking for something different. Well, it looks like you’ll find that at the Flamingo next year.
“RuPaul’s Drag Race Live!” opens in late January inside the theater that used to be home to Donny & Marie at the Flamingo. This won’t be another show on the Vegas Strip that looks like every other show.
Many visitors in Las Vegas enjoy gambling at a casino bar. One of the many reasons to gamble at a bar is that drink service is usually quicker than on the casino floor. Even with new(ish) added drink monitoring systems the complimentary drinks can still flow quickly as long as you’re playing video poker, keno, and on the rare occasion slot machines.
Visiting Las Vegas is sometimes about enjoying a life that you don’t normally live. Before moving to Las Vegas I often used my trips Las Vegas to explore living above my means for a day or two. My friends and I would often take one night to live above our means.
Just when you thought you’ve seen it all, Happy Place opens at Mandalay Bay. This self-described “interactive, immersive pop-up experience” has been called “the most Instagrammable pop-up in America” by Urban Daddy. It’s entirely possible this is a fitting tagline for Happy Place.
I recently visited the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood for the first time in a while. I visit Planet Hollywood pretty often but don’t venture too deep into the shops. This recent visit was to meet some friends for lunch at Nacho Daddy, so I walked through the mall just to check out the scene.
The Las Vegas Festival Grounds has been an underutilized plot of land for MGM Resorts (That could change next year if the rumors are true). That’s starting to change with multiple events happening in the second half of 2019. The multipurpose outdoor venue is across the street from Sahara on the southwest corner of Sahara Avenue and Las Vegas Blvd.
Being a member of a casino loyalty or players club is a great way to get lower complimentary or discounted hotel rooms in Las Vegas. We recently looked at the casino loyalty clubs on the Vegas Strip for anyone interested in receiving rewards from their favorite casinos. Since that post, there’s been some news for the largest loyalty clubs in Las Vegas and around the US.
Rock bands are taking over the Vegas Strip! The latest rock band to announce a Las Vegas residency is a name from the 1980s that should sound familiar. Foreigner will be taking over the Las Vegas Strip in 2020 for a 10 show limited engagement. Their exclusive headlining residency show will take place at The Venetian Theatre inside The Venetian.
There’s no bad time to visit Las Vegas. However, some days may be better than others. Weekends in Las Vegas can be some of the most fun times in Sin City. There are lots of people visiting and just about every venue has an artist – residency or otherwise – performing. The buzz after an amazing weekend in Las Vegas can’t be matched.
The Venetian is always upgrading, expanding, and renovating. We’re going to look at the new pool deck today. Soon we’ll look at the new entertainment venue that’s being built behind the existing casino-resort. For the time being, you can read about The Sphere which should open next year.
The improvements at the Plaza continue with a new entertainment offering. The historic downtown Las Vegas hotel and casino recently announced a new upgraded Luxe Room series. Now they’ve announced that longstanding comedy club and entertainment company, The Comedy Works, will bring nationally acclaimed standup comedians to the showroom at the Plaza Hotel & Casino.
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Is The First Casino On the Vegas Strip To Implement Slot Ticket Donations For Charity
The idea of donating leftover change from slot machine tickets isn’t new but it’s long overdue on the Vegas Strip. The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas recently announced a new charitable giving offering. This platform is now available on all 12 ticket redemption machines on the casino floor.
As we recently discussed, most of the Las Vegas Strip casinos have updated their players clubs to be overall loyalty clubs for their customers. These newer loyalty programs reward customers for money spent throughout the casino and resort. The players club model only rewards players or gamblers.
Every year I take a summer vacation (I don’t like the word staycation) on the Vegas Strip. The week away from work gives me a chance to enjoy Vegas like a tourist instead of a resident. It’s like the good ole days when I was an east coaster making a semi-annual visit to my favorite city outside of New York.
The NHL recently released the schedules for every team in the professional hockey league. Since their inception, the Vegas Golden Knights have drawn fans from all over the country. Las Vegas locals love their team that plays at T-Mobile Arena. Tourists plan trips to Las Vegas in part so they can see their favorite home team play in Sin City.
