We decided to give you real-life Jersey Boys along with some reality TV Jersey in Las Vegas today, beginning with the show Jersey Boys. Simply put, this is one of the best shows you’ll find in Vegas. Jersey Boys tells the story of Frankie Valli and company as they make the journey from the streets of Newark, New Jersey to international superstardom and pop culture success, and the production of such hits as “Sherry” and “Big Girls Don’t Cry” is phenomenal. It recently celebrated three strong years on the Strip and is primed for more success. It was rated #1 Best Show in Vegas by the Las Vegas Review Journal. For more information, visit their web site,check out our page on them, and we have a deal for the Venetian, and also for the Palazzo where they play.
In reality television Jersey news, Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzo took over LAX in the Luxor this weekend, hosting a party there. Ronnie Ortiz-Magro hosted Rehab at the Hard Rock Hotel just a day later, and fellow cast members DJ Pauly D, Jenni “JWoww” Farley and Deena Nicole will be in Vegas this weekend. It seems there’s no slowing down the Jersey Shore cast, as we reported earlier.

Las Vegas locals had a favorite restaurant, and its name was Rosemary’s. Sadly, after 12 years, it has been confirmed that the restaurant has closed its doors. It was located at 8125 W Sahara Avenue and specialized in creating an authentic and enjoyable dining experience in Vegas, earning five-star reviews on several restaurant review web sites. We’ll miss Rosemary’s and the great Las Vegas food. Don’t forget, we have a great restaurant guide HERE if you are looking for places to eat in Vegas.
