. This edition of the Rewind starts with unhappiness as the Las Vegas Strip and the international culinary community are grieving a remarkable loss: “Chef of the Century” Joël Robuchon died Monday in Geneva after a long battle with cancer; he was 73. One of the world’s most awarded chefs and restaurateurs, Robuchon was a frequent visitor in Las Vegas after he opened two dining establishments at MGM Grand in 2006, the city’s only Michelin three-star winner Joël Robuchon and the surrounding L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon.

” Mr. Robuchon always set the bar when it concerned providing the absolute best cuisine, service and hospitality. The many popular awards and distinctions he got throughout his career are a testimony to his commitment to his craft,” said MGM Resorts International Elder Vice President of Food & & Beverage Ari Kastrati. “Even more so, however, it was the way he motivated individuals that is so memorable. Whether in the kitchen area working alongside his chef teams or at a cooking occasion where fans lined up to see him, you might constantly tell that he brought an enormous amount of joy to others. His culinary genius will continue to survive on in the minds and hearts of all he touched.”

I met with Robuchon several times and interviewed him at length 5 years earlier, asking the master about international patterns in cuisine and his hospitality viewpoint. He informed me he loved hanging out in Las Vegas since of its diverse visitors: “Possibly more in Las Vegas than anywhere else on the planet I travel, there is a melting pot of customers, actually a stunning worldwide base. It’s incredible to see all these different international responses to the same food.” You can read that 2013 interview at Las Vegas Weekly. Marcus Skrinak/Spiegelworld Josh Groban backstage at” Opium.” Friday night’s opening

was another epic concert event at Park Theater, however Saturday night’s performance was extra unique because another music legend remained in the house.

With two shows closing recently at the Paris Theater– “Marilyn The New Musical” on June 17 and “Inferno” on July 14– there’s clearly a space on the Strip. On Sunday night, something totally different was revealed to fill that space: A huge Vegas version of the popular I Love the ’90s nostalgia performance tour. Salt-N-Pepa, Rob Base, All-4-One and Sisqo surprised Paris guests with a pop-up performance to reveal I Love the ’90s: The Vegas Show, set to open on Oct. 12.

While “Marilyn” has actually been rumored for a resurgence in a various space, it was slated to return on Sept. 4 to the Paris Theater, according to the resort’s home entertainment calendar’s Monday listings.

I finally made it to the Westgate International Theater to see the legendary Barry Manilow on Friday night, but had I returned on Saturday I might have been seated next to previous young boy banders Jeff Timmons and Justin Jeffre of 98 Degrees fame. Unlike me, they got their picture taken with Barry after the program, undoubtedly real Fanilows.

Bearded funnyman Jim Gaffigan stayed after his Friday set at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace and discovered the David Perrico Pop Strings Orchestra, the powerful 14-piece band that infuses all sort of vibrant energy into familiar tunes at Cleopatra’s Barge Fridays and Saturdays. Gaffigan is officially a fan.

I wrapped an extremely busy show-going week (7 various shows in 5 nights on and off the Strip, thank you very much) by signing in on “Opium,” Spiegelworld’s ever-changing, space-themed comedy range program at the Cosmopolitan. While the current version included many favorite acts from the first viewing– the woman in the bubble, the Chihuahua-balancing astronaut, the spaceship’s cruise director “Leslie,” the hula-hooping “Scottie” and a super-sassy sword swallower– it moves much quicker now and is thick with action, having actually trimmed a number of sections of the story. There were a couple of new acts, too, including a hot circus-style whip routine with a major surprise. My guess is “Opium” could be a perpetually unfinished piece, continuously tweaking its vibrant team to promote return gos to. It stays riotous and extremely different from other show on the Strip.

NBA Summertime League wraps up today at the Thomas & & Mack Center and while dozens of hoops stars checked out Las Vegas to support their current groups and future colleagues, there remains no bigger NBA celebrity than LeBron James, who made one of his very first public looks because signing with the L.A.
