Coming this spring, Hak is overhauling its just-acquired Stingaree club in the Gaslamp as another Omnia. Stingaree's last night of operation is November 2, and the second Omnia will open just after the spring bow of the one at Caesars. Early rumblings have it that Hak ain't stopping at two, either. We're hearing at least one more Omnia is targeted to be in the works.

First, though, he starts out nice and slow.

    Planning a vacation is one of the easiest and most overlooked ways to save money in Las Vegas. While it’s easy to make an early macro plan for your trip to Las Vegas (airfare, hotels) we shouldn’t forget the micro planning (meals, activities) of your days while on vacation. That’s what we’re going to do today. Planning what you’re going to eat in Las Vegas is a great way to save money. Spontaneity is part of what makes visiting Las Vegas fun. Not every plan is rigid and set in stone. What I’m going to discuss doesn’t involve specific locations. What I’m going to discuss is…

    If you’ve been to Las Vegas recently you should have noticed a lot of changes. These changes are meant to keep the city fresh to returning customers and to attract newer and younger customers. Well, the good news for the casino and hotel operators is that the refreshments they’ve made to Las Vegas are working for the younger and, hopefully, future customers.   In the past two years the median age of the average customer in Las Vegas has gone from 50 years old to 44 years old. Simple math would tell you that’s a difference of six years. While six years isn’t exactly a lifetime it…

    We’re always looking out for ways to save money in Las Vegas. There are so many ways to save but some of those discounts, deals and special offers can get confusing. Marketing and advertising people are in the business of deception. Most people over 21 understand that the sandwich on TV never looks the same when they see it in person. We know that what we see isn’t always what we get. This is true anywhere but especially in Las Vegas where all marketing, PR and advertising is embellished to some degree.

Since the release of his hit single “Animals” in 2013, the Dutch DJ/producer has catapulted into the spotlight of dance music’s elite. Look no further than DJ Mag’s annual DJ rankings to see just how far Garrix has come in such a short period of time.

    The Global Gaming Expo (aka G2E) is a yearly gathering for the casino business. Casino operators have seminars to discuss the state of the business while buyers for casino companies roam the massive expo floor in search of new products to use in their casinos. The products that take up the most space on the expo floor are the slot machines. They occupy almost half of the entire display area at G2E. Many of these slot machines will see casino floors in Las Vegas shortly. Here is a quick look at the slot machines that I think will be amongst the most popular. Mad Men and Monopoly Slot Machines…
