(From Caesars Facebook) The Flamingo is celebrating the grand opening of Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville Casino with the creation of Lucky Rita, the world’s largest margarita, and with a pair of street parties. Our Parrothead friends are already in the spirit (perhaps both literally and figuratively). Join the fun today at 5, or tomorrow and next Saturday from 11 to 6.
We’ve recently received word after reporting on Project Linq that O’Sheas will be no more. It will merge with Imperial Palace, which will be rebranded and change names after it gets a makeover. This is the reference to “re-skinning” both O’Sheas and Imperial Palace.
Caesars owns both properties and plans to relaunch a different O’Sheas in summer 2013. We will miss the current O’Sheas. Where else can you be served beer by a leprechaun?
After a four-year absence from the Vegas gaming scene, the Riviera is bringing bingo back to the fold. After exiting Chapter 11 on April 1, the new Riviera is under new management and launching a complete revamp of many areas, including the bingo room. This isn’t your traditional chips and white cards setup, however, as the Riviera is targeting all audiences, particularly the males age 20-40 demographic. Now, the bingo machines are electronic, with players having the choice of using fixed monitors or hand-held devices. Gone are the days of only the older crowd playing–the Riviera says bingo is for everyone. Better yet, the big games will move to a bigger area and the bingo room is projected to break even at the least.
Other hotels are following suit.The Plaza will also reopen on August 24 with a $150,000 bingo tournament as well, and a waiting list that has grown to 160. If you’re looking for Vegas gaming at its finest, look into information on the Riviera, as well as checking out Plaza info.
The technology age is rewarded once again! The buffet at Planet Hollywood Hotel & Casino has an offer if you check in on Foursquare–buy one, get one free. Just show the “coupon” on your phone to the Total Rewards desk, and they’ll give you a coupon to use downstairs.
In addition, PH has a front-of-line pass for $12, which can be worth it; just wait at the front and flash your card. $12 extra will get you all-you-can-drink beer and wine while at the buffet. This is our kind of deal! Check our page on Planet Hollywood for more information.
