The Linq isn’t just about the High Roller wheel Here’s an “only in Vegas” question for you: what do zebras, coffee, and mechanical bulls have in common? That would be The Linq, as the first few venues of the anticipated Strip-centric district have finally been announced. Opening Dec. 27, count on a Starbucks (obvs), whimsical….
Jon Gray, “Mayor” of The Linq project being built between the Flamingo and The Quad, has shared the first photo of a freshly-erected sign for the new O’Sheas. For those who have been missing the original O’Sheas (like this blog) since it closed in 2012, this new sign represents both a blast from the past….
We were giddy to receive news yesterday that massive parts of the High Roller observation wheel, the crown jewel of the even-more-massive Linq project, had arrived at the construction site behind the former O’Shea’s casino. The outsized segments, complete with inner scaffolding and ladders, will be assembled to form the support legs of the 550-foot….
When the beloved O’Sheas casino closed (in April, 2012) to make way for The Linq project, there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth. We know, because we were in the building, gnashing along with all the other O’Sheas fans. As the end neared, the table games were shut down, one-by-one. At the roulette table,….
There were things we knew we’d miss when O’Sheas casino closed back in April, in fact we made a list of them. We knew we’d miss the beer pong, the free entertainment and block parties. But there are others we didn’t expect to miss so much. Here are 15 of them. 1. Lucky’s Spiel The….
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….
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….
It was loud. It was liquored up. It was a little bit sad. Kind of like O’Sheas casino itself, come to think of it. At noon on April 30, 2012, O’Sheas casino on the Las Vegas Strip closed its doors, and boisterous fans showed up in droves to knock back one last shot, to place….
This is it. The last hurrah for O’Sheas. The bawdy, boisterous casino closes at noon April 30, 2012. In honor of O’Sheas closing, this blog thinks its mascot, Lucky the Leprechaun, deserves his own meme. We’ll get things started. Here’s the original version of the photo in case you’d like to muck with it. Not….
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….
This just in: O’Sheas casino will knock back its last shot at noon on April 30, 2012. If you and your miscreant friends were planning on being there for the end of O’Sheas casino, don’t wait until the evening of April 30, the beloved casino will have gone dark by then. O’Sheas is closing to….
Beer pong fans are about to hear some staggering news. See what we did there? The era of beer pong at O’Sheas casino on the Las Vegas Strip (at least in its current form) has come to an end. In anticipation of the casino’s closing on April 30, as part of the massive Linq development….
Blondies Sports Bar & Grill, in The Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood, is a reliably good time, and Living Social is currently offering up a deal for $40 worth of food and drink for $20. It’s likely O’Sheas casino will soon hand over the mantle of “Beer Pong Mecca” to Blondies, so you might….
There was a lot going on at O’Sheas casino on St. Patrick’s Day. There was the rain that drove the block party inside. There was the revelry. There was the bittersweet reality this would perhaps be the last O’Sheas block party. There were the shamrock tattoos. And there was the debauchery. Yes, there was lots….
All good things must come to an end, and this time, that good thing is O’Sheas casino on the Las Vegas Strip. The beloved casino will officially close its doors on April 30, 2012, to make way for The Linq, a development project that will change the face, and cleavage, of the Las Vegas Strip….
