One of the cool things about The Linq development project happening in Las Vegas is that it’s not just one thing. It’s not just a giant observation wheel, or new places to shop or drink. From what we’ve seen and heard so far, The Linq could end up being a new way to experience Vegas,….
As if the Auto Collections at Imperial Palace weren’t already pleasing enough, the car-lover’s paradise just started giving guests a whole new way to enjoy the rare autos on display with the introduction of handheld audio tour devices. The self-guided audio tours are available as of today (June 27, 2012), and will add a whole….
Progress can be cruel sometimes. A drive by the former O’Sheas casino is proof. The good news, and there’s lots of good news, is that dramatic progress has been made on the Las Vegas Strip to make way for The Linq, the $550 million development project that will include an entertainment and dining corridor, as….
The “Queen of Soul” herself, Aretha Franklin, is coming to Caesars Palace on July 15 at 7:30 p.m. Rolling Stone magazine put the iconic singer at the top of their “100 Greatest Singers of All Time,” and she’s been entertaining audiences for decades. In 2005, she was a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom,….
World-champion juggler Jeff Civillico will hit the stage at Imperial Palace for a new show, starting May 26, 2012. Civillico’s comedy-fueled show includes physical humor, stunts and juggling with audience interaction. At least that’s what the news release says. The show hasn’t opened yet, and this blog is incapable of seeing into the future. It….
We can’t say it enough. This blog loves it some free Vegas stuff! The free Imperial Palace slot tournament, where you can win up to $1,500 in free slot play, definitely qualifies. Here’s how it works. It’s complicated, so pay attention. Not the kind of attention you pay to your spouse. The real kind. You….
Given the popularity of reality TV’s “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” the recent opening of Drink & Drag in downtown Las Vegas and the ongoing success of “Frank Marino’s Diva’s Las Vegas” at Imperial Palace, this just may end up “The Year of the Drag Queen.” How cool is it to be a female impersonator at the….
Things move quickly on the Las Vegas Strip, and Caesars Entertainment has wasted no time in taking the next big step toward making room for the Linq, the massive development project that will feature a shopping and dining promenade, as well as a 500-foot observation wheel. Let’s blow something up! At 2:30 a.m. on May….
The hours until the closing of O’Sheas may be growing fewer (the beloved casino closes at noon on April 30, 2012), but if you move quickly, even if O’Sheas is gone, it won’t be forgotten. We just learned O’Sheas has issued limited-edition (just 3,000 were produced) gaming chips commemorating the end of an era on….
There’s definitely been one degree of separation between Las Vegas and the TV juggernaut “Dancing With the Stars” lately. On the April 23, 2012 episode, Imperial Palace headliners Human Nature joined the popular show for a Motown-themed blow-out. The four freaky-talented members of Human Nature, Andrew Tierney, Toby Allen, Michael Tierney and Phil Burton, performed….
Although Drink & Drag Las Vegas, billed as the “first-ever fully drag queen-staffed bar,” won’t officially open until May 5, 2012, the downtown establishment quietly began to welcome guests this weekend, and we were there. Unfortunately, because it was just a “soft launch,” we were told we weren’t allowed to take photos. So, naturally, we….
His name is Jaymes Vaughan. He’s in the Chippendales male revue at Rio Las Vegas. But that’s kind of just the beginning. You see, Jaymes Vaughan does it all. He’s the ultimate Renaissance Man, like Galileo Galilei, but shirtless. Vaughan not only dances in Chippendales, he’s also the featured singer, and also does his thing….
It’s time for more change in the wake of the massive Linq development project in the center of the Las Vegas Strip. The last day for The Rockhouse Bar & Nightclub at Imperial Palace is May 5, 2012. The popular, boisterous watering hole will be moving to a temporary location at The Miracle Mile Shops….
What awful news. Because this blog loves karaoke. Totally. We’re pretty much despondent having to report that the Karaoke Club inside the Imperial Palace has closed. We can hardly contain our sadness. Because we love karaoke so darned much. We understand the poker room will be moving into the space formerly occupied by the Karaoke….
Here’s a juicy little Las Vegas tidbit: From 1959 to 1979, the Imperial Palace was called the Flamingo Capri. Soon, the Imperial Palace will be “retired” as part of the $550 million Linq development project, which means the hotel will get a new name. This blog’s rooting for the name “Lee Nover,” but that might….
