Olympic legend Michael Phelps has had quite the weekend in Vegas, hitting three hot spots along the way. He began by taking over a cabana in H20 on Tao Beach, soaking in some sun and getting into the festivities of Skam Artist Fridays, then feasting on all the Italian specialties Lavo has to offer and enjoying DJ Politik following dinner. Just yesterday, he was spotted soaking up rays at Encore Beach Club at Encore Las Vegas. He then enjoyed DJ George Acosta’s music and headed to the Encore Beach Club gaming pavilion to play a little craps. Phelps, who won a record-setting eight gold medals in the 2008 Summer Olympics, was just cooling off and relaxing. If he’s around in 2020, it will most likely be as a coach, but it’s a possibility the Olympics could end up in Vegas, as the city sent in a letter of intent to host the 2020 Summer Olympics; however, the United States Olympic Committee says they will not apply to host the games. Deadlines for official applications and a possible retraction of the USOC’s non-application are due September 1. If you’re looking for deals at the Venetian, we’ve got a great hotel deal so you’ll be right near the action when athletes and celebs like Phelps come into town.
