This year’s Vegas Uncork’d food and wine festival by Bon Appétit (May 9-12, 2013), was a non-stop series of high-profile events highlighting Sin City’s best chefs, sommeliers and restaurants.

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.

The New York City version of Brooklyn Bowl just received quite an accolade: The entertainment venue just made Rolling Stone’s elite list of “Venues That Rock.” See the full list. The great news for Vegas fans is that center-Strip is getting a Brooklyn Bowl all its own. The massive entertainment complex will open in The….
It seems like only yesterday (because it was yesterday) we were peeking our head in at The Quad’s new casino area, and there was so much to be done! The dealertainer tables were being assembled. The shelves at the new “Q” Wine & Spirits store were yet to be filled. The roulette wheels were being….
Although a number of tenants have been announced for The Linq, the first-of-its-kind F.A.M.E. has made us especially curious. The venue’s name stands for “Food. Art. Music. Entertainment.” But we still weren’t getting it. So, we decided to track down Chul Park, who works with HIG Management, the group bringing F.A.M.E. to The Linq. The….

The Quad’s getting a fancy new sign, and the first letter has just been installed. It’s the “t.” Which is the first letter in “The Quad.” Please try and keep up. No, we’re not going to write a new blog post every time a new letter is installed. Probably. If you don’t follow Las Vegas….
We were pretty impressed when The Quad unveiled its fancy new porte-cochère (French for “the car drive-up entrance thingy”). But to really appreciate the hotel’s new entrance, you have to hang out for a minute or two. Every few minutes, the colors change. They undulate. No, not undulate. They morph. It’s not really morphing. Sort….
Our post about Free Vegas Shows That Aren’t Shows got us thinking we should share more photos of the High Roller observation wheel construction site. As if we need an excuse. It’s a mind-blower. There have been a number of deliveries in recent days, with some key parts of the High Roller (crown jewel of….
The best things in life are free, and that applies to Las Vegas, too. Here are eight free “shows” in Las Vegas you won’t want to miss. 1. Noodle-Making at Beijing Noodle No. 9 Every day at Beijing Noodle No. 9 at Caesars Palace, classically-trained chefs make Chinese noodles the old-fashioned way, by hand. Their….
The ever-boisterous Carnaval Court at Harrah’s Las Vegas has closed temporarily for some sprucing up. Carnaval Court will open again on March 1, 2013, according to this blog’s exhaustive research.

With two successful years on The Las Vegas Strip already under its belt, “Recycled Percussion” is coming to The Quad starting Jan. 26, 2013. “Recycled Percussion” is touted as a mixture of “extreme percussion, engaging humor and extraordinary athleticism,” which includes using everyday items like buckets, ladders and sinks as musical instruments. One of the….
There are few things that spark as much excitement in the hearts of Las Vegas casino chip collectors as new chips to collect. Well, The Quad (formerly the Imperial Palace) just rolled out its new chips, and we couldn’t wait to get our hands, and lens, on some. The shiny new chips at The Quad….
