    The glamorous ‘Blanc de Blanc’ opens this week at SLS by Brocke Radke

    Something new is coming to SLS Las Vegas this week and it’s something the north Strip resort hasn’t had since it re-branded and re-opened in 2014 — a resident show.

    “Blanc de Blanc” will make its Las Vegas debut on August 16 in the Foundry at SLS, a cabaret-style variety production with dancing, acrobatics, comedy and more. The Foundry was converted from the former Life Nightclub and has played host to concerts and other special events, while the smaller Sayers Club has been more actively used for SLS entertainment, most notably comedy shows from Eddie Griffin, Mo’Nique and others.

    As the resort evolves into the new Sahara Las Vegas this fall under new owner Alex Meruelo, “Blanc de Blanc” could become a prominent part of the next version of this iconic Strip property.

    Distill Still Plans To Move to Henderson and the Southwest by Bradley Martin

    The parent company behind Distill and Remedy’s Taverns already had a huge year, but two more expansions are still the works, with one taking longer to debut than expected.

    Earlier this year, Distill took over five Putter’s Bar & Grills around the city and in rapid fashion remodeled and relaunched the sites as their own 24-hour gaming and dining destinations.

    Still to come, yet another Putter’s Tavern is currently being transformed at the southwest’s Shops at Warm Springs retail center, close to the intersection of Durango Drive and Warm Springs Road. The always open restaurant and bar already applied for a 15-machine gaming license earlier this year and promises to be “coming soon.”

    Eighteen miles to the southwest, plans for a built-from-scratch Distill tavern in Henderson were first revealed in March 2017 and originally proposed to fill 6,780 square feet at the corner of Via Inspirada and Via Da Vinci.

    The empty plot of land remains vacant and the Distill team asked the City of Henderson for a “one year extension of time” on their permits, before they revive the project. Currently, necessary water and sewer services are located too far from the proposed building, but they hope as the neighborhood grows they will be able to tap into the new utilities and kick start the build.

    Get To Know The Best Buffets in Las Vegas by Susan Stappleton and Krista Diamond

    Culinary trailblazers back in the 1940s found a way to keep gamblers inside the resorts with cheap food, and lots of it. El Rancho Vegas, the Strip’s first resort, came up with the chuck wagon, the earliest version of the modern day buffet to turn up in Las Vegas. As UNLV’s Center for Gaming Research writes, “quantity was usually emphasized over quality.”

    “The buffet filled a need for the casino, which wanted to keep its late-night gamblers happy, but didn’t want the expense of keeping a full restaurant open all night. Knowing that the hungry gamblers would be happy with good, plentiful meats and snacks, the El Rancho Vegas’s managers created the all-night chuck wagon. It may have seemed like no big deal at the time, but the casino buffet would become a Las Vegas signature restaurant.”

    Those early chuck wagons might have served some hot dishes along with cold cuts. El Rancho Vegas’ Buckaroo Buffet only cost a dollar for all-you-can-eat fare when it opened.

    Now, Las Vegas has more than 70 buffets spanning from Aliante to Henderson, Summerlin to the Strip, serving gourmet fare at a range of stations.

    Here’s a look at some of the better buffets in Las Vegas with some of their novelty additions.
