Vegas Eats: Bardot Brasserie at Aria

When I heard that Aria was tossing Chef Michael Mina's American Fish into the compost bin and replacing it with French bistro Bardot by... uh... Chef Michael Mina... I was uhm... sort of excited. MGM seems to love Michael Mina, he's their all-purpose creator of plug and play restaurant concept. Need some pub food? Done. Need a seafood joint? Done. Need a different variant of pub food? Done. Need a different type of seafood place? Done. Alas, Bardot brasserie, Aria's French joint. City Center's...

Vegas Eats: Cheeseburger Cupcake at Harrah's Fulton Street Food Hall

I waddled from Casino Royale over to Harrah's in the hopes that I might find a cup of coffee or something equally toxic that might aid in boiling down the sea chicken & waffles, cheeseburgers, chicken rings, donuts and french fries currently sloshing around from side to side with each step. Somewhere at the far end of the casino (mmmm oysters) beyond a phalanx of video poker machines I happened upon the Fulton Street Food Hall a new looking a la carte, chain free, dining area...

Tropicana To Get New Restaurants, Possibly Hotel Tower

Nevada Gaming Commission has approved Penn National Gaming's $360 million dollar purchase of The New Tropicana Las Vegas - A DoubleTree by Hilton from Onex Corportaion and Alex Yemenidjian. Before we get on with the PNG news, we definitely should salute Mr. Alex Yemenidjian for doing what many people thought was nearly impossible - he transformed the Tropicana from poop drooling, maggot infested, dirty bunghole of a casino, into a vibrant, fun, clean resort offering great rooms and decent gambling at a competitive value. Bon...

Vegas Eats : White Castle Hamburgers at Casino Royale

Shortly after checking in to a really well designed room at the Linq Hotel I headed out in search of penny slots food. Casinos may as well just throw the slot machines into Lake Mead as far as I'm concerned. This millennial has absolutely no interest in gambling when all of Las Vegas' delicious is whispering "oooooo eat me" so gently in my ear. I slipped on my Crocs and hit the concrete. Upon realizing it was hot outside, I purchased the nearest,...

Meet The New Owners of Vegas.com

Greenspun Corporation (publishers of the Las Vegas Sun, Vegas Inc. and other glossy magazines) have sold Vegas.com, their online ticketing and hotel reservation system to Remark Media. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Remark Media (listed on NASDAQ:MARK) is a conglomeration of global websites targeting snake people with mobile first interface design and things like that and stuff. I've never heard of any of the website they own, which makes sense since I am not in the 18-35 demographic of snake people. Poking around their...

The Rio's Facebook Problem

By now, you've probably seen that folks often put a disclaimer on their social media profiles that say "My tweets are my own and not a reflection of my employer" or something like that. We've never seen employers put a disclaimer on their social media accounts that say "Our employees, we love em, they work hard for us, we pay them... but they say stupid shit in person and on social media - don't hold us accountable, mkay?" The other day an employee of the Rio posted...

Introducing The ālon Logo

ālon, the forthcoming resort from former Wynn Resorts executive Andrew Pascal and Crown Resorts Chairman James Packer, have unveiled their logo. The logo type is modern, sleek, chiseled, well-balanced and spacious in a deep bronze. A light blue macron sits atop the a, further emphasizing it's pronunciation. Imagine Battlestar Galactica and Happy Days had a love child born from the leathered loins of the Fonz and a lubed up Cylon motherboard. "Aaaaaalon." In addition to the logo, ālon have launched their corporate website located at alonleisure.com. Another...
