    Jeff Civillico to go ‘Over the Edge’ at Planet Hollywood
    BY: Robin Leach/Las Vegas Sun



    Daredevil juggling headliner Jeff Civillico will throw himself off the roof of Planet Hollywood on Friday afternoon in a crazy, never-been-done-before stunt to raise funds for Special Olympics of Nevada.

    “It’s completely crazy,” Jeff told me. This will be his third year of the “Over the Edge” insanity rappelling down the side of the casino resort.

    Last year, the Quad stage star rode his unicycle off the roof, but this year he will top that by juggling — or as he calls it “rappuggling” — the entire way down.

    “I’m passionate about giving back to the Las Vegas community, so we’re hoping the stunt will raise significant funds and more awareness for Special Olympics here,” he added.

    Within hours of posting the challenge on his website, Jeff’s fans had raised the $1,000 minimum he needed to participate. Now it’s a question of how much more money the wacky stunt can generate.

    I’ve thrown in $100 just because he’s so crazy!

    After less than one month, ‘Georgia on My Mind’ to close Oct. 15 at Venetian
    BY: John Katsliomentes/Las Vegas Sun

    This is what happens when you run out of time to sell enough tickets to turn a profit: You "adjust."

    Laden with talent but stagnant at the box office, “Georgia on My Mind” is closing next Wednesday at the Venetian Theater.

    In a statement issued this afternoon, the hotel announced: “The show calendar for 'Georgia on My Mind — Celebrating the Music of Ray Charles' has been adjusted to better reflect audience sales patterns for the groundbreaking show. This limited-engagement production will wrap at the Venetian Theater on Wednesday, Oct. 15, giving fans an opportunity to enjoy a final performance before the show officially ends its Vegas run.”

    Bellagio remodeling 403 main-tower suites
    BY: J.D. Morris/vegasinc.com

    The Bellagio is beginning to remodel all 403 suites in its main tower, the final piece of a major project that started about three years ago, the resort announced today.

    The suites will be spruced up with “high-style surfaces” and a new color palette, among other changes, according to a statement from the Bellagio. Work should be finished in February, with reservations available in early November.

    “A great deal of thought went into every element of these spaces and we’re thrilled to begin the final phase of this project,” Randy Morton, the Bellagio’s president and chief operating officer, said in the statement.

    The work is part of a $165 million project. In 2013, Bellagio finished remodeling 928 rooms in the hotel’s Spa Tower and in 2012, it finished work on 2,568 rooms in the Bellagio Tower.​

    WAHLBURGERS TO OPEN THREE RESTAURANTS IN LAS VEGAS, NEVADA

    Wahlburgers, the popular fast casual burger restaurant founded by brothers Mark, Donnie and Paul Wahlberg and the focus of A&E Network’s Emmy-nominated reality show of the same name, announced a three restaurant franchise agreement with Vegas American Hospitality Inc, successful operators in Las Vegas, Nevada and nationwide.

    Wahlburgers will debut in Las Vegas in early 2015 with the opening of its first restaurant at a location soon to be disclosed. Two others will follow within the next five years, all in locations consistent with the company’s desire to locate Wahlburgers in premiere, high traffic areas.

    “My brothers and I have been committed to doing things right with high standards of quality from the beginning. We are glad to have found partners who will uphold our values and create something really special for Las Vegas residents and people from all over the world who visit this incredible destination,” said co-founder and executive chef Paul Wahlberg.

    “We are pleased to be taking this important step in our expansion with a proven partner in Las Vegas,” said Rick Vanzura, CEO of Wahlburgers. “Over coming months, we look forward to taking further steps toward building relationships that will establish Wahlburgers as one of America’s great restaurant brands.”

    According to Vanzura, Wahlburgers has attracted very high interest among potential franchisees, having received thousands of inquiries since opening in 2011. Despite the high demand, owners and management remain focused on partnering with proven multi-unit operators who ensure quality execution and are aligned with the brand culturally. In anticipation of securing additional deals in the United States by year’s end, Vanzura and his team are in the process of building systems and infrastructure to support growth.

    The Las Vegas restaurants are planned to be over 4,400 square feet with sizable outdoor patios and offer all the signature characteristics of the flagship restaurant in Hingham, Massachusetts, including full-serve and quick-serve dining options, take-out and a full bar.

    ‘Marriage Can Be Murder,’ now at The D Las Vegas, celebrates 15 years of interactive theater
    BY: Robin Leach/Las Vegas Sun

    There were two murders the night I had dinner at The D Las Vegas downtown, and the suspect sat just a few tables away until a police investigator exposed his identity.

    Don’t be too shocked because it wasn’t real-life ugliness. This was the scripted shenanigans at “Marriage Can Be Murder” now celebrating 15 years as the longest-running Las Vegas dinner-theater show.

    For about $100, you get a three-course meal, two alcoholic beverages, souvenir photo, T-shirt and premium seating that could put you in the cast of the show’s wacky characters. That’s true value, and on the 15th of the month through next July, it gets even better with a $30 locals ticket offer.

    The pit is closed for the Dealertainers at the Quad
    BY: John Katsilometes/Las Vegas Sun

    The show’s closed for the once-groundbreaking Dealertainer lineup at the Quad.

    The approximately 30 dealers and performers who worked the Dealertainer pit at the hotel were reportedly told in a meeting Monday that the program would be ending effective immediately.

    The Dealertainer Pit was introduced in September 2003 at the then-Imperial Palace (now the Quad). Those who performed in the Dealertainer Pit were told that they could continue as dealers on a part-time basis.

    New burlesque musical cast is ready for ‘Limelight’ at Plaza
    BY: Robin Leach/Las Vegas Sun


    Photo credit: TOM DONOGHUE / DONOGHUEPHOTOGRAPHY.COM

    Charlie Chaplin with his “Little Tramp” persona was one of the most important figures of the film industry’s Silent Era. His fame came after a London childhood of poverty hardships, an absent father and a mother who was sent to a mental asylum. Twice before the age of 9, Charlie was in a workhouse.

    By 1918, he had become one of the most famous figures in the world and in 1919 co-founded United Artists, which gave him complete control of his movies including “The Kid,” “The Gold Rush” and the satire of Adolf Hitler with “The Great Dictator.” He wrote, directed, produced, edited, composed the music and starred in most of his films, including the epic “Limelight” in 1952.

    However, because of FBI investigations into allegations that he was a Communist sympathizer, it wasn’t until 1972 that it was honored at the Academy Awards. In “Limelight,” Charlie played the role of a once-famous stage clown who becomes a washed-up drunk.

    High-octane ‘Limelight’ at the Plaza captures spirit of The Roaring ’20s
    BY: Robin Leach/Las Vegas Sun

    The Roaring ’20s celebrated a decade of booms and prosperous economic times. It was a nonstop party fueled with music, dancing, burlesque, vaudeville and movie stars, and the new burlesque show “Limelight” at the downtown Plaza captures it all.

    “Limelight” is a high-octane, frenzied entertainment package with some of the most dynamic dancing seen in Las Vegas. Some of its excitement is right in your face as the gorgeous glamor girls dance among the audience and their legs barely miss your head.

    To say the choreography is great is an understatement: It’s fun, fast, furious, delightful, dangerous, decadent and totally sexy. A topless “Benny Hill” burlesque chase is hysterical. Three beauties atop a raised metal bench are erotic, and three girls in bathtub barrels are hilarious with bubbles in place of bras.

    Here is some more info about this limited run show:

    LIMELIGHT, Las Vegas' newest show, opened this past weekend at the iconic showroom at the Plaza Hotel & Casino with a VIP reception on Saturday. A high octane mix of burlesque and vaudeville, LIMELIGHT's dynamic dancing incited cheers from the crowd throughout the night. As the performers literally stepped out of the black and white screen into technicolor life, the feel and energy of the Roaring 20s was rekindled with a seductive edge.

    Sabina Kelley, international pinup model, celebrity judge on Oxygen's "Best Ink" and guest star in Stratosphere's PIN UP and Kevin Burke of "Defending the Caveman" walked the red carpet with the cast before producers and performers Jodie McDonald and Danial Brown thanked guests for attending.

    Evoking a beautiful silent film starlet in full black and white makeup, Felice Garcia sang "I Wanna Be Loved By You" and "Walk of Shame." Baton twirling cadet major Amy Toliver stunned the crowd with her skills while Brown, playing a bad boy Charlie Chaplin, drew laughs with his cheeky performance in a bubble bath scene. Other standout dances included a feather striptease to Squirrel Nut Zippers' "My Drag," and Janelle Monae's "Tightrope."

    The full cast, including Priscilla Trammel, Carlynn Mazon, Kaitlyn Morgan and Taylor Huggins, ended the show to will.i.am's "Bang Bang" before stepping back into the world of black and white.

    Tickets are on sale now at plazahotelcasino.com or 702.386.2507 for a limited engagement until Nov. 1 every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night at 10 p.m. For more information, visit limelightshow.com and follow LIMELIGHT on Twitter and Instagram at @LimelightVegas and Facebook at facebook.com/limelightshow.

    SLS Las Vegas is open for business: ‘Let’s go have some fun!’
    BY: Don Chareunsy/Las Vegas Sun


    Photo credit: Steve Marcus

    After eight years and a $1.2 billion investment ($800 million for the Sahara and $400 million for the renovation), Sam Nazarian, the founder, chairman and CEO of SBE, the parent company of SLS Las Vegas, ended a Friday-morning news conference at his new Strip casino resort with the following instruction: “Let’s go have some fun!”

    In the hourlong gathering led by SLS President and COO Rob Oseland, who was onstage with Nazarian and financier Terry Fancher of Stockbridge at the former site of the Conga Room in the Sahara, the north-end-of-the-Strip property was introduced at Las Vegas Boulevard and Sahara Avenue with multiple thanks and praise.

    Oseland, who was a guest columnist in July, in his opening remarks called SLS a “catalyst for investment on the north end of the Strip,” praised Gov. Brian Sandoval and Steve Hill, the executive director of the Nevada Governor’s Office of Economic Development, for their commitment and persistence, and said that SLS employs 3,400 people and started as a grass-roots effort in a depressed area that is now one of opportunity and the “doorstep to downtown.”

    SLS Las Vegas celebration will be a night of champagne wishes and caviar dreams
    BY: Robin Leach/Las Vegas Sun

    Friday night’s celebration for the grand opening of SLS Las Vegas, followed by the midnight debut to the public, will be one epic fete — a true champagne-and-caviar blast.

    Forget the statistics for the construction transformation of the former Sahara; let’s look at the staggering party numbers.

    SLS reports that 2,600 hours of planning will have gone into the festivities with 3,500 celebrities, VIPs and local dignitaries attending from as far away as Paris, New York, Miami, San Francisco and Los Angeles. All 1,600 hotel rooms are booked solid.

    SLS Las Vegas preview: Dancers in birdcages; 30-foot Cleopatra; peekaboo glass showers
    BY: Robin Leach/Las Vegas Sun

    Hotel tycoon Sam Nazarian promises that his new SLS Las Vegas will be “legendary” in every sense of the word as it opens Friday at midnight. He’s betting more than $500 million on the sleek chic casino resort that’s been transformed out of the 18-acre site of the old Sahara that closed in May 2011.

    My preview of the champagne-and-caviar grand-opening celebration Friday night was posted Wednesday.

    The new luxury hotel has 1,620 guest rooms created by cutting-edge French designer Philippe Starck, but it’s the restaurants, pool and nightclubs that will have the town really talking. Philippe is even bringing the celebrity-hit, hip-hangout Katsuya from Los Angeles to SLS.

    Star chef Jose Andres, who already established his Las Vegas reputation at the Cosmopolitan (Jaleo, China Poblano and E), will reign over SLS with Bazaar Meat and Ku Noodle Bar. Danny Elmaleh, who is one of our guest columnists today, will run the sparkling standout Cleo.

    Live Blog: The Grand Opening Of SLS Las Vegas
    From: www.vegaschatter.com

    More than three years after closing, the Sahara hotel will officially be reborn as SLS Las Vegas at midnight tonight.

    When the iconic property first shuttered, skepticism was high regarding a promise by owners to be back soon. It wasn't soon, but it is back. We'll tour you around the completely redesigned and re-imagined resort via this live blog throughout the day and into the late hours of the evening. We'll also have live coverage on our social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

    After 20 years, ‘Lion’s Share’ slot machine at MGM Grand pays out $2.4 million jackpot

    A lucky New Hampshire couple leaves the Strip tonight for their flight home as winners of a $2.4 million jackpot from the legendary “Lion’s Share” slot machine at MGM Grand.

    The machine hit the big jackpot on Linda and Walter Misco’s last night in town — just before midnight this morning (or about the same time as the opening of SLS Las Vegas north of them on the Strip).

    One of the winners inserted $100 into the machine and was playing the $3 max bet for about five minutes when the three long-awaited green emblems lined up horizontally on the jackpot center pay line.

    CELINE DION PERFORMANCES AT THE COLOSSEUM AT CAESARS PALACE CANCELED

    It is with great regret that we inform you that Celine Dion has canceled all scheduled performances, including those at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Affected performances include all announced shows scheduled through March 22, 2015.

    Celine Dion has decided to postpone all of her show business activities indefinitely, in order to focus 100% of her attention on her husband Rene, their family, and recent health issues. Since Rene's surgery last December to remove a cancerous tumor, it's been a very difficult and stressful time for the couple as they deal with the day-to-day challenges of fighting this disease while trying to juggle a very active show business schedule, and raise their three young children.

    Celine has also been fighting an illness that has caused inflammation in her throat muscles, and has not been able to perform any of her scheduled shows in Las Vegas since her last show on July 29. She has still not recovered from this condition.

    "I want to devote every ounce of my strength and energy to my husband's healing, and to do so, it's important for me to dedicate this time to him and to our children. I also want to apologize to all my fans everywhere, for inconveniencing them, and I thank them so much for their love and support," said Celine. “I also appreciate the understanding of my long-term partners AEG and Caesars Entertainment during this difficult time.”

    Besides canceling her shows at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace until further notice, Celine will also cancel her tour of Asia, previously scheduled for the fall of this year.

    Celine, Caesars Palace, and AEG apologize for any inconvenience this causes ticket holders.

    Ticket holders for the canceled performances should be aware of the following:

    Credit Cards – Orders purchased with a credit card for the canceled performance will be refunded to the credit card used for purchase.

    Cash - Those who purchased tickets with cash may present tickets at the original point of sale for a refund.

    Please note that Celine, The Colosseum, AXS, Caesars Palace, and AEG Live are not responsible for hotel, travel or other expenses related to the cancelations of these performances.

    Australian casino mogul takes second chance on north Strip with Frontier site deal
    BY: Eli Seagall/www.vegasinc.com

    Australian casino mogul James Packer took a bath on the Fontainebleau, sinking hundreds of millions of dollars into the doomed Las Vegas resort that now sits blighted and unfinished.

    But that didn’t turn him off from the north Strip — especially when there’s a bargain to be had.

    Packer, the billionaire chairman of Crown Resorts, has teamed with former Wynn Resorts executive Andrew Pascal and investment giant Oaktree Capital Management to acquire a controlling stake in the vacant 34.6-acre former New Frontier site, just north of Fashion Show mall, with plans to build a resort there.

    Terms of the sale were not disclosed, but Packer’s group reportedly paid $280 million — a fraction of the $1.24 billion that Israel’s El-Ad Group paid for the property in 2007, at the peak of the real estate bubble.

    SLS Las Vegas President Rob Oseland: ‘This is a place designed with locals in mind’
    BY: Rob Oseland/Las Vegas Sun

    There’s nothing quite like opening a new resort destination in Las Vegas. We’ve been at work on SLS Las Vegas for years, and as we inch closer and closer to finally unveiling the vision behind this large project, I get one question more than any other: “What does SLS stand for?”

    The answer is uniquely layered and at the same time absolutely simple.

    You’ve likely seen it called out as “Style, Luxury, Service” and I won’t deny that’s what we’re aiming for with SLS. But SLS isn’t really an acronym at all.

    It’s our name and one that, as founder Sam Nazarian puts it, “will become synonymous with timeless elegance, intelligence, humanity, discovery and a completely novel guest experience.”

    SLS stands for a lot of things. For me, some of the most salient are memories, beginnings, innovation, playfulness and approachability.

But the true success stories are few and far between. Although, we might argue, when they are successful, they’re very, very successful. Just ask our first star.

    THE RETURN OF LIBERACEWITH PLANS FOR A NEW MUSEUM AND THE RESTORATION OF HIS VEGAS HOME, THE SHIMMERING SHOWMAN IS BACK IN THE SPOTLIGHT

    BY: Kristen Peterson/Las Vegas Weekly



    This outrageously diamond-studded persona, still lingering 27 years after Liberace’s 1987 death, is what draws new fans to a pop-up exhibit of his costumes at the Cosmopolitan, Too Much of a Good Thing Is Wonderful: Liberace and the Art of Costume. The renowned showmanship is what inspired Ravenhill to buy the performer’s run-down Valley home and begin the project to restore it. And it’s what Warren, who is also Honorary Consul of the Principality of Monaco, hopes will keep fans interested as the foundation moves forward with ambitious plans to bring Liberace’s collection back into the light.

    The foundation’s next plan is to open a 15,000-square-foot space in one of Liberace’s old haunts on the Strip. Details are still being finalized, but Warren says the foundation will likely begin a crowdfunding campaign this month and to start moving into the new venue in September.

    What is wrong with this picture — Robin is on vacation, and I’m doing his work?! But for him, anything!

    When I asked Robin what I could write about while he was away, he said, “Anything you want; it’s your column for the day.” So let me fill you in on two big events in my life.

    I’m taking the show I do every Friday and Saturday night at Piero’s, giving it a New York City flair and bringing it to the Metropolitan Room in New York in August.

    Delano Las Vegas Offers First Look At Elevated Hotel Experience



    Fusing the chic style of the iconic South Beach brand with the vibrant energy of the Las Vegas Strip, Delano Las Vegas will come to life at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino later this year and is now accepting room reservations for stays beginning Sept. 1 via delanolasvegas.com or 877-632-5400.

    Anchored by intimate yet energetic public spaces and sophisticated accommodations, the non-smoking, all-suite boutique hotel will appeal to the most discerning travelers from around the globe. At Delano Las Vegas, guests will discover a blend of personalized service and effortless luxury coupled with unexpected elements of individuality and high-concept design.

    “Delano guests will be wowed by the introduction of this very special destination,” said Matthew Chilton, general manager of Delano Las Vegas. “Dynamic public spaces will serve as social hubs where guests will want to linger and socialize while the clean design of the suites will create a quiet escape.”

    Blending eclectic details to create an atmosphere that is playful and filled with energy, the stylish public spaces will be highlighted by a sleek new lobby featuring three distinct social spaces – a unique coffee bar, sophisticated lounge and café concept. Upstairs and away from the action, Delano’s 1,100 guest suites will provide a luxurious retreat.

    Public Spaces
    A Grand Arrival. As guests approach Delano Las Vegas’ expansive stone entry and wood-slatted gate, they will encounter an extraordinary divided boulder from the Nevada desert, certain to become a signature element of the hotel. Guests will venture down a striking walkway featuring colors and textures inspired by the layered landscape of the Mojave Desert, inviting them to drift further into Delano Las Vegas’ alluring escape.

    The Journey Begins. Entering through an oversized etched wooden doorway, guests will see an inviting pathway of stone surrounded by towering columns enveloped in Delano’s iconic white sheers and statement mirrors. At the end of the corridor, a stunning piece of artwork comprised of small rocks suspended from the ceiling with a sculpted opening will reveal a glimpse of what lies beyond. A sleek black reception desk highlighted by a golden patchwork art piece overhead will welcome guests.

    Sunrise to Sunset. Situated just off the main lobby, 3940 Coffee + Tea will provide guests with a space to meet and mingle from day to night. The bar will serve gourmet coffee and tea from Grand Avenue Specialty Coffee, a company dedicated to providing a superior coffee and artisanal tea experience. Fresh squeezed juices and breakfast pastries such as warm scones, savory and sweet crepes, and cronuts with house-made jams will be served throughout the morning. Each afternoon, a tea cart will offer the finest selection of loose-leaf tea served alongside traditional accompaniments like petite pastries and finger sandwiches.

    In the evening, guests at 3940 will enjoy craft cocktails, wine and beer complemented by signature small plates featuring organic, sustainable and locally sourced ingredients. The space will feature mid-century modern furniture, plush sofas, communal seating and an inviting marble fireplace. Inspired by the shaded area of a sun-drenched desert, the ceiling will boast a unique lighting feature that illuminates the space with a patterned glow.

    Urban Kitchen, Classic Comforts. Located just steps from the Delano lobby, a new culinary destination will blend natural design elements with industrial materials to exude a warm, comfortable simplicity that quietly entices guests to savor each bite and treasure every encounter. Creating an essence of “historic farmhouse meets urban kitchen,” ...
