Trop Watch: Bacio Getting Pellegrino'd
Our super duper pal Mr. Thomas McCartney (above), President (and resident laff riot) of the Tropicana showed up in a recent article in the LVRJ (pronounced "Elvurj") touting yet again the multitudinous ways in which the Tropicana is "Changing Everything". Some of you may remember that Mr. McCartney was the Vegas Gang's guest at last years Vegas Podcast-A-Palooza.
Buried about half way down in the article are some tidbits about new stuff coming to the Trop.
The next phase of the renovations are already starting to roll out: a poker room debuts April 15th, new steakhouse, new spa, renovated entertainment venues, new front desk check in area and Nikki Beach.
He also mentions that the Trop's Italian joint Bacio (See VegasEats: Bacio at Tropicana) will be rebranded in conjunction with a "celebrity chef."
We know that Wolfgang Puck will sign his name to anything, but this seems like a stretch. How about Food Network vixen Giada De Laurentiis? Or Nigella Lawson? Or game show winner Aarti Sequiera, or Game show host Tyler Florence (Misnomer's pick) or Olympic Gold Medalist and South Park character Brian Boitano.
Update: The winner is Chef Carla Pellegrino, thanks JohnD.
