    THE WESTIN LAS VEGAS HOTEL & SPA TRANSFORMS INTO NON-GAMING, NON-SMOKING PROPERTY


    The Westin Las Vegas Hotel & Spa, located just steps from the Las Vegas Strip, has completed major renovations, transforming into the city’s newest non-gaming, non-smoking option, perfect for corporate travelers and leisure guests. Under the management of Crescent Hotels & Resorts, the casino floor has been removed to make way for Jake & Eli, an original restaurant and lobby bar concept, as well as new and upgraded meeting spaces.

    “Travelers often mix work and play when they come to Las Vegas, and our proximity to The Strip gives us the opportunity to offer an alternative to the typical casino property while staying true to The Westin brand,” said Lezlie Young, General Manager of The Westin Las Vegas Hotel & Spa. “We are proud to unveil the new venues and upgraded amenities to best serve our guests. Plus, our new concierge team are Las Vegas experts who will anticipate guests’ every need, making everyone feel like a VIP.”

    At the heart of the transformation is Jake & Eli, a vibrant culinary experience unique to The Westin Las Vegas. The restaurant is inspired by the imagined meeting of two innovators credited with being the first to create the much-loved concept of American bourbon. Guests can expect a mouth-watering mix of classic comfort food and signature cocktails. A décor featuring exposed brick walls, industrial chandeliers, high-top seating and plush booths creates a contemporary setting, perfect for business and leisure travelers alike.

    Already a favorite destination for meeting planners and loyal members of SPG® and Marriott Rewards®, The Westin Las Vegas has added four new meeting rooms, located off the lobby, increasing its capacity by 20 percent. These flexible spaces are complete with custom catering options including a private buffet, signature menus from Jake & Eli, and a dedicated pre-function space, making this area the ideal spot for large and small business or social groups.

    The new lobby-level design complements the previous enhancements made this year, which included updating the 826 guest rooms and suites and reimagining the Hibiscus Spa and Salon and Westin WORKOUT® Fitness Studio. The final phase of improvements, including the outdoor pool area, is expected to be completed by early 2018.

    The Crowd Goes Wild at Rampart Casino Race & Sports Book with the Addition of Steve Mikkelson as Race & Sports Director



    Rampart Casino just hit a home run as they welcome their newest player to the team - Steve Mikkelson as Race & Sports Director. Mikkelson will be overseeing the daily operations of The Race & Sports Book.

    We’re very excited to have Steve Mikkelson oversee race and sports operations,” says general manager Michael Gaughan Jr. “He has a wealth of knowledge in both race and sports, is truly passionate about his career, and we’re looking forward to many memorable moments with Steve on our team.”

    Hailing from the cool winds of Moline, Illinois, Mikkelson acquired his interest in sports as a young boy and would often be found at his parents’ bowling alley scoring strike after strike and avoiding the gutters. At the age of 14, Mikkelson and his family packed up their belongings and ventured to the warmer winds of Sparks, Nevada, where he attended high school before travelling to southern California for college. Mikkelson attended San Diego State University before transferring to University of Nevada, Reno. During his time there, he often pondered about working in the gaming industry and how he can contribute his knowledge of race and sports to those who share similar interests. Once Mikkelson turned 21, he scored his first sportsbook position at the Bally’s Casino in Reno, Nevada. After working at Bally’s Casino for more than 20 years, Mikkelson transferred to the sportsbook at the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa in Reno. Mikkelson has now ventured south to tackle his newest adventure as the Race & Sports Director at the recently renovated Race & Sports Book inside the Rampart Casino, where he is eager to share his knowledge with his fellow coworkers and patrons. Twice a week, Mikkelson is a special correspondent on the Rob, Anybody, & Dawn In The Morning Show on Rad Radio.

    Top Ten Values in Las Vegas from the Las Vegas Advisor
    Ellis Island Off Strip
    $7.99 Steak Dinner 24 hours $7.99
    The complete steak dinner at Ellis Island remains at #1 this month. The filet-cut sirloin comes with soup or salad, choice of potato, and green beans and is served 24/7 for $7.99. To get that price you have to print out two coupons from an EI kiosk, the second after playing at least $5 in any slot machine with your club card inserted. We tried it again this month and discovered a good new wrinkle that you can read about in Dining.
    Skyline Greater Las Vegas
    Shrimp Cocktail 24 hours $1.49
    The shrimp cocktail at Skyline is served 24/7 at the main bar and comes in a cocktail glass, with no filler lettuce or celery, and topped with a tangy sauce.
    Klondike Sunset Greater Las Vegas
    $1.49 Breakfast Daily $1.49
    The $1.49 bacon or sausage & eggs breakfast at Klondike Sunset is served every day in Sarah’s Kitchen from 7 to 11 am.
    Flamingo Las Vegas Strip
    5¢ Draft Beer Daily
    Amazing us by surviving for another month is the Flamingo’s 5¢ beer deal in the Margaritaville Casino area’s 5 O’Clock Somewhere bar that runs daily from 5 to 6 pm (#5). It’s a bit of a cram-fest to beat the clock in that one-hour window, then there’s the dilemma of what to toke on a 25¢ tab. But it’s the spirit of the thing that makes it a great way to start an evening out.
    Harrah's Strip
    Mac King Tues.-Sat. $14.98
    There was a mix-up of some sort last month and we received multiple reports that the Mac King promo tickets (#6) were no longer available. It turns out to have been a temporary glitch and we’ve confirmed in person that the $14.98 tickets (after all fees) that include a drink are still being handed out at the Total Rewards booth. Great deal on an excellent show. Just walk up and ask.
    South Point Off Strip
    Hot Dog Daily $1.25
    The $1.25 hot dogs at South Point come with onions, kraut, and relish at no additional charge and are served from a cart in the sports book from 10 am until 5 pm. It’s not only the best hot dog deal in town, but these are some of the best dogs period.
    Stage Door Casino and Lounge Strip
    $1 Beer 24 hours $1
    On the other side of the coin, an institution ended last month with the price of a Michelob in the bottle at Casino Royale rising 100% to $2. Not to worry, there’s another dollar-beer deal right around the corner. Pabst Blue Ribbon in the bottle is available for a buck 24/7 at the Stage Door slot house on Flamingo, just a stone’s throw from the Strip. We break down the differences for you in Entertainment.
    Hooters Strip
    $1 Blackjack 24 Hours $1.20
    The $1-minimum blackjack game at Hooters runs 24/7 in the pit. The rules aren’t good, with naturals paying even money on bets of $1-$4, but it’s the only dollar game on or near the Strip. The $1.20 “cost” is the expected loss for one hour’s play at flat $1 bets. Also, parking at Hooters is free, which is another good reason to check out this deal
    Crown & Anchor Greater Las Vegas
    Lunch Comp Daily $20 buy-in
    Last month we listed the Crown & Anchor deal (#9) as “Steak & Lobster,” rather than “Lunch Comp.” We corrected it online, but it couldn’t be addressed in the hard copy of the newsletter. It’s correct here. Play $20 through a machine and get anything on the menu comped. Hours are 8 am-2:30 pm at the east location (Tropicana/Maryland Pkwy.) and 11 am-3 pm at the west (Spring Mtn./Decatur). If you miss lunch, the offer is extended for appetizers until 6 pm on the east and 7 pm on the west.
    Binion's Gambling Hall Downtown
    Photos Daily Free
    Returning to the list this month is the free photo with $1 million dollars at Binion’s (#10), available 9 am-11:30 pm; the photo takes 30 minutes to process and you can get one per day.
    MGM IS BETTING ON A BIG YEAR ON THE STRIP IN 2018 by Brock Radke

    MGM Resorts International is bringing a lot of excitement to 2018 with the transformation of the Monte Carlo resort into Park MGM and the NoMad Hotel. And yet that massive project is just the tip of the spear when it comes to the hospitality behemoth’s plans for the coming year, when it will deliver unique and thrilling entertainment options to the Strip.

    The aforementioned resort’s Park Theater recently added Lady Gaga—opening in December—to its list of resident stars, with more big names to come. “We anticipate there will be more residents announced at Park Theater in the near future,” said Senior VP of Entertainment Rick Arpin. “The acts we are looking at are amazing and iconic, which they would have to be to match an already stellar lineup.”

    There are plans to further utilize the neighboring Park and Toshiba Plaza this year, especially when programming aligns with major events at T-Mobile Arena, which has been electrified with the success of the Vegas Golden Knights.

    2018 CHECKLIST: 15 THINGS YOU SHOULD DO THIS YEAR IN LAS VEGAS

    https://lasvegasweekly.com/news/2018...217.1500900339

    ‘Mindfreak Live!’ to close in October when Criss Angel’s contract expires

    After a 10-year run, “Mindfreak Live!”at Luxor will close Oct. 28, Cirque du Soleil and Criss Angel Productions announced today.

    “It has been an extraordinary experience working with Cirque du Soleil and Luxor these past nine years. They have been amazing partners and will always be part of my family,” magician Criss Angel said. “I am so proud of what we have created together, and I am extremely excited about the new illusions we will be adding in our final year of ‘Mindfreak Live!’”

    "Criss Angel Believe," a $100 million production, debuted at Luxor on Oct. 31, 2008, and was replaced by “Mindfreak Live!” in 2016.

    “We’re very blessed to have the best-selling magic show on the planet, an incredibly well-received show that really connects with people on an emotional level,” Angel told the Las Vegas Sun in July when he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. “My current contract expires Oct. 31 next year, and I will have completed 10 years.”

    The collaboration of Angel and Cirque du Soleil resulted in 4,000 performances.

    “It has been a pleasure to work with Criss Angel for the past nine years,” said Jerry Nadal, senior vice president of Cirque du Soleil. “Criss is a visionary artist and watching his illusions come to life onstage has been an incredible experience. We respect his decision to explore other opportunities after 10 successful years at Luxor and we are looking forward to a tremendous final year.”

    AIRLINE SITCOM ‘LA TO VEGAS’ DELIVERS A ROUGH RIDE by Josh Bell

    Anyone who’s made the flight between LA and Las Vegas, especially on a particularly busy holiday weekend, knows that it’s full of colorful, sometimes obnoxious characters, and the new sitcom LA to Vegas attempts to mine that for laughs, with mixed results. The show’s regular cast is split between employees of the fictional Jackpot Airlines and passengers who make frequent trips on the bargain flights between the two title cities, and its humor is equally broad whether addressing air travel or life in Las Vegas.

    Main character Ronnie (Kim Matula) is a likable flight attendant with typical sitcom problems (unlucky in love, stuck in a dead-end job), and she provides a solid, grounded contrast to the broader supporting characters, including recognizable faces Dylan McDermott as a smarmy, overconfident pilot and Peter Stormare as a sleazy but well-meaning gambler. Ronnie’s will-they-or-won’t-they dynamic with a handsome divorced professor (Ed Weeks) who travels to see his son every week is pretty tired, and the character relationships haven’t quite come together in the three episodes available for review.

    With jokes about strippers, quickie weddings and niche conventions, the show certainly doesn’t have a sophisticated or original take on Vegas. Its take on air travel is slightly fresher, but for the most part it occupies the same sitcom level as the budget airline for which its characters work.

    The talent-packed ‘Cocktail Cabaret’ takes over Cleopatra’s Barge by Brock Radke


    It comes as no surprise that a new show dubbed “The Cocktail Cabaret” has taken up residency inside Cleopatra’s Barge, the classic Caesars Palace lounge space born in a different Vegas entertainment era and seemingly frozen in time. But this musical spectacle has a couple notable twists.

    First, it’s a 5 p.m. show. The unorthodox scheduling is carefully calculated to fill a void in casino programming, a surprise designed to get Vegas visitors—whether they’re in town for business or fun—to start their night a bit earlier. But more importantly, this cabaret is absolutely crammed with talent. It’s a 70-minute musical blast that’ll leave you wanting more.

    “The Cocktail Cabaret” was created by PK Entertainment, a joint venture between Vegas and Broadway veterans Keith Thompson and Philip Fortenberry. Thompson is the talented composer known for his work on “Jersey Boys” and the Composers Showcase at the Smith Center. Fortenberry is the gifted pianist who served as the hand double in HBO’s Liberace biopic “Behind the Candelabra” and he anchors a rollicking band that includes drummer Don Meoli, bassist Josh Jones and sax player Eric Tewalt.

    Lady Gaga signs for 2 years at The Park on Las Vegas Strip by John Kasliometes

    Saying, “It’s been a lifelong dream of mine to play Las Vegas,” Lady Gaga is making it all come true beginning in 12 months. Her residency at The Park Theater begins in December 2018, and in a news release issued today is described as “a two-year, multidate love affair with Las Vegas.”

    It is expected Gaga is performing at least 36 shows in her first residency on the Strip. She is reportedly earning about $400,000 per show, in what is certain to be a groundbreaking stage production at the 5,300-seat venue. Her specific opening date, ticket prices and on-sale dates have not yet been announced.

    “It’s the land of Elvis, Tony Bennett and Frank Sinatra, the Rat Pack, Elton John, Judy Garland and Liza Minnelli,” Gaga was quoted in that release. “I am humbled to be a part of a historical line-up of performers, and to have the honor of creating a new show unlike anything Vegas has ever seen before.”

    Hunger Pains - The Food & Restaurant Section

    Lucky Dragon Shuts Down Its Restaurants by Susan Stappleton

    Say so long to the restaurants at Lucky Dragon, the Asian resort on Sahara Avenue. The casino shut down all of its restaurants except Cha Garden effective immediately so the beleaguered resort can reorganize.

    According to a statement from Lucky Dragon public relations, the resort “is beginning the process of reorganization and, in doing so, will have a reduction in staff while it temporarily closes all gaming and restaurant operations. The hotel and gift shop will remain fully operational including room service, morning tea and coffee. In addition, Cha Garden will remain open, featuring a full bar at night and an expanded food menu. While this is a difficult decision, this reorganization paves the way for Lucky Dragon to establish new partnerships that will enhance the property’s long-term positioning and provide a better guest experience.”

    Lucky Dragon anticipates that staff laid off can “rejoin the Lucky Dragon team when gaming and additional restaurant operations resume within six months.”

Upgraded spins on familiar buffet fare includes smoked brisket Benedicts, cornmeal Johnny cakes and a mini-duck cassoulet with white beans.

    Priced between $12.99 for breakfast and $21.99 for dinner, with discounts for Boarding Pass players club members, a Sunday brunch has also been added, dedicated to serving bottomless mimosas.

    Joe Isidori wants Las Vegas to know three things about his Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer, opening on Dec. 30 at the Venetian.

    He teams up with Chris Barish, who opened Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Palace and Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris Las Vegas.

    Todd English P.U.B. OUT, Olives at Bellagio Next by Bradley Martin

    In less than a month, Todd English will no longer helm a restaurant on the Strip, but it is possible Las Vegas has not yet seen the last of the celebrity chef.

    The Todd English P.U.B. shuttered at Aria last week and was immediately given a speedy makeover as The Pub, keeping the spirit of a traditional British watering hole alive.

    While the handover was expected, but not publicly announced, it follows weeks of mysterious official job postings for a new “Todd English Pub” concept to be located at MGM’s The Park.

    While any new location has yet to be revealed, the job description hints “this job posting is designed to create a pool of qualified candidates for current and future opportunities.”

    The Biggest Restaurant and Bar Openings of 2017 by Susan Stappleton & Bradley Martin

    Call 2017 the year that off-Strip restaurants outshined new openings on the Strip. Andre’s Bar & Bistro, The Black Sheep, Boteco, and Sparrow & Wolf brought diversity along with Stripp-trained chefs with food to match to the dining scene off the Strip. Chinatown shined with Yasiknara with pricey Korean fare, 8oz Korean Steak House & Bar with Korean barbecue, Cafe Sanuki with Japanese udon on the cheap, and Mian Sichuan Noodles from the owners of Chengdu Taste.

    On the Strip, the year started with Cosmopolitan unveiling David Chang’s first Las Vegas restaurant, and then London-based izakaya Zuma, followed by Blue Ribbon from the Bromberg brothers. Lorena Garcia, the Venezuelan chef who competed on Top Chef Masters, became the first Hispanic woman to open a restaurant on the Strip, debuting Chica in May at the Venetian. The Monte Carlo continues its transformation into the Park MGM and NoMad in 2018, but Primrose, a three-meal restaurant with a French twist, and Bavette’s Steakhouse & Bar already set the tone for the resort that will include Eataly and NoMad from the Sydell Group. Plus, two new buffets let diners eat their fill of food.

    Here’s a look at some of the biggest restaurant openings in 2017, enough to try one new place every week for a year.

    FROM CHICAGO TO THE STRIP, BAVETTE’S HITS THE SPOT by Brock Radke


    Is it too early to pick the best new restaurant of 2018? Bavette’s actually opened at the tail end of 2017, which shows how quickly this Chicago transplant has left an impression. Informal yet regal, dark and sexy (but in a nontraditional way), the new steakhouse is one of the restaurant cornerstones of the Park MGM/NoMad Hotel resort (for now, still known as the Monte Carlo). There will soon be other new dining options announced for the evolving Strip destination, and they’ll all have catching up to do to compare to Bavette’s.

    The foyer is French country meets leather-and-wood library. The long, sleek dining room glows under golden chandeliers and Tiffany lamps, which create warm vibes while maintaining intimacy at every table. And don’t get us started on the bar hidden at the back of the room. From the moment you first step inside Bavette’s, you feel like returning again and again.

    Oh yeah, the food is delicious, too—a seemingly classic steakhouse menu with some surprises along the way. Dishes from bygone eras make triumphant returns, like baked goat cheese slathered in rich red sauce with garlic bread for dipping, and a prime beef French dip sandwich. Chilled seafood towers and dry-aged, bone-in ribeyes await for the baller set, while burgers griddled with American cheese, smoked salmon Caesar salads and fried chicken with mashed potatoes and cipollini onion gravy will satisfy those in need of extra comfort. Side dishes of thick-cut, maple-black pepper bacon and bourbon-glazed sweet potatoes go with everything. And save room for a towering slice of lemon meringue pie to finish your first masterpiece meal. Bavette’s Steakhouse & Bar at Monte Carlo, 702-730-6700; Sunday-Thursday 5-10 p.m., Friday-Saturday 5-11 p.m.

The steakhouse is offering this dish from Tuesday, Jan. 9 to Friday, Jan. 12 in honor of the Consumer Electronics Show.

    FIVE CASINO BUFFETS WORTH THE GORGE by Brock Radke

    5. The Buffet at Bellagio Long a buffet standard-bearer, Bellagio just added a selection of dishes from other resort restaurants, like chicken pad Thai from Noodles and Sardinian gnocchetti with pork sausage from Lago. 866-259-7111.

    GO ABOVE AND BEYOND AT CRAVINGS’ NEW CHEF’S TABLE by Jason Harris

    When is a buffet more than a buffet? When an already high-quality experience is upgraded with a chef-curated selection of dishes served straight to the diner.

    The chef’s table concept might seem an odd fit for a traditional Las Vegas buffet, but it has been worked into some of the Strip’s biggest and best. And the new Chef’s Table Experience at the Mirage’s Cravings is affordable and accessible. You’ll gain access to the entire Cravings buffet, already one of the best out there, along with a special meal providing the kitchen’s skilled craftsmen a chance to show off.

    For an additional $20, guests are seated at a special table and presented with five courses. The meal within a meal begins with a mini caprese salad and assorted sushi, along with toasted garlic bread. From there, a more decadent salad featuring citrus and goat cheese is served alongside a lovely charcuterie and cheese board that includes duck prosciutto and imported Spanish manchego cheese.

    Entrées include an expertly prepared Angus beef sirloin with chimichurri and turkey roulades wrapped in bacon; grilled vegetables and creamy mashed potatoes act as the accompaniments. As a finale, a tableside presentation breathes new life into chocolate lava cake. Chefs paint a white serving board with chocolate and raspberry sauces, top it with individual cakes and even brûlée some marshmallows. The flavors match the spectacle.

    If you’re looking to double down on your all-you-can-eat meal, Cravings’ Chef’s Table makes for a worthy indulgence. The Chef’s Table Experience at Cravings at the Mirage, 702-791-7111; daily 4-9 p.m.
