    Looks like someone's not invited to the plaid party. (Photo by Rich Mbariket) Andy Samberg's island was marginally less lonely Saturday at SLS. He got to hang out with a couple of friends at a Foxtail cabana, then did dinner at Bazaar Meat later that night. It's the kind of thing you do when you're steeling yourself for a new season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine to drop, we guess. Yet Samberg was only the second-coolest guy at SLS that day.

    OK, fine, it's a little Durst-y. Any DJ Shadow show necessarily has a little bit of old-school flair, considering his 1996 master class on sampling, Endtroducing. But tonight's Brooklyn Bowl gig with Cut Chemist kicks it even further back, as the two DJs fire out a set of Afrika Bambaataa tracks.

(Photos by Denise Truscello) Haze, long the rumor subject of a grand remodeling, is calling it a run after a Halloween weekend Carl Cox appearance on November 1. Whatever they do, please don't ditch the diorama when you walk in. It feels like having a penalty box right in the club. Like you could send someone there two minutes for spilling their drink on someone, or requesting Avicii from the DJ. Of course, that would kind of suck for the sexy ladies that already occupy the diorama. This plan needs work. Point being: Let's get some penalty…

That, in and of itself, would be a bit of a thing. (Lookit her eating pizza! Stars, they're just like us if security would ever allow us to bring food into the club even if it was just a staged thing to make us seem more precocious!) But she just so happened to be at Surrender after her show at MGM Grand Garden…

    During a recent trip to Lake Las Vegas, which was make with a lunch trip at Bernard's Bistro in mind, be found out some startling stuff. Firstly, with the casino closing nearly 6 months ago, the main Lake Las Vegas shops were more ghost town than I've ever seen. They often weren't very busy, but this was to a new level to me. Our waiter devulged that due to the low business, the owner of the resort is letting them be there rent-free currently, in hopes that Bernard's Bistro doesn't close. My plea to all: make a trip to Lake Las Vegas, please.

  • What makes Phantogram stand out?

    19 Sep 2014 | 3:56 am
    When I first heard about this band, I was not aware of who they were or what genre they work on to create their beats. Just like a majority of population around the world, I too look up for a nice chorus to set in my mind and then focus on what the music artist has to talk about in their songs unless it’s a rap of course. However, my perception completely changed when I heard the duo perform. The unconventional combination of street beats and psych pop (as the duo call it) was totally mind blowing. Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter share an 18 year old bonding that has inconceivably blended…

    Loyalty clubs are great! Loyalty clubs are a waste of time! Opinions on joining loyalty clubs are wide ranging. Like everything else in Las Vegas, loyalty clubs are different and you’re going to want to be a member.   Loyalty clubs are more commonly called players clubs in Las Vegas because they started differently than all other loyalty clubs. Loyalty clubs in Las Vegas started as slot clubs offering loyal slot machine players benefits such as free buffets. Slot clubs slowly morphed into players clubs and offered rewards to slot machine players and table game players alike. The…

    It’s no secret that Downtown Vegas has undergone a major facelift over the past few years. You’re no longer just going to “Old Vegas”. You’re going to “Downtown Vegas”. They’re one in the same but each name holds a certain connotation. When you say “Old Vegas” to someone they imagine that you’re going to one of the casinos that have been around for years. The assumption is that these old casinos are falling apart because that’s how they used to be. That’s not quite the case with a new casino like Downtown Grand, a major renovation like The D and casinos that recently…

    Football season is right around the corner. Las Vegas and football have become best friends over the years. If you are a football fan you’re probably playing fantasy football.

    Reading Marc’s Top 10 Burgers in Las Vegas article left us with a serious burger craving. Even though Holstein’s Shakes and Buns has been a staple at the Cosmopolitan since the opening of the hotel in 2010, we still hadn’t eaten there. It was time to change that! Situated upstairs and around the corner from The Chandelier Lounge, we were greeted by a friendly hostess and a pink-spotted Holsteins cow statue. We were given the choice of dining at the bar, in the lounge area, or in the main dining area. Since we wanted to sit down and relax for a spell, we chose the dining area. We were…

    Las Vegas has changed a lot recently and that’s a good thing for sports fans.

  • The Bunkhouse Saloon is Back

    28 Aug 2014 | 9:24 am
    The Bunkhouse Saloon was a venerable if sometimes slightly sketchy Fremont Street bar like, at one time, many others in an authentically decaying Las Vegas. You could blow a paycheck on the video poker, chow on a sub, and drown your sorrows in cheap beer and whiskey. First opened way back in 1953, the Bunkhouse Saloon grew into a place where a mix of mostly local bands could squeeze onto the tiny corner stage while crowds maneuvered around the small dance floor, sat smoking around tables on an elevated area, and played video poker at the well stocked and welcoming bar. It wasn’t fancy, and…
