. So I had a quite big weekend, taking a look at the brand-new program Opium at the Cosmopolitan (a full review is coming later today) and going huge with a bachelor celebration bar crawl on Fremont Street. But if anyone owned Vegas recently, it needed to be pro golfer Michelle Wie (presently No. 6 on the LPGA loan list and ranked No. 13 in the world by Rolex) who exploded social media while partying at Bellagio and hitting the links at Shadow Creek. Wie and her squad likewise signed in at Hyde Bellagio throughout supermodel and “Genuine Homemakers of Miami” cast member Joanna Krupa’s birthday celebration.

One of your preferred actresses took in among your preferred Vegas programs. The great Viola Davis (“Fences,” “The Aid,” “How to Get Away with Murder”) and her child Genesis saw Cirque du Soleil’s “O” at Bellagio over the weekend, signing up with cast members backstage after the program for the ‘gram. Apparently Davis is a long time Cirque devotee.

The Funny Cellar at the Rio promised huge names would be appearing on its stage just as they do at the New york city City original, and it only took one weekend to prove the claim as Aces of Comedy resident Ray Romano dropped in after his Mirage program. Romano is one of the many standup stars who paid his charges in the NYC club, which has actually exported its design and setup to the off-Strip resort.

Additional entertainers have actually been announced for the 2018 Billboard Latin Music Awards to be held later on this month at the Mandalay Bay Occasion Center and Strip headliner Ricky Martin tops the list. His fantastic production “All In” go back to Park Theater returns May 23 but he’ll join social media star and rapper-of-the-moment Cardi B and Colombian reggaeton vocalists J Balvin and Karol G at the Latin Billboards show and event April 26, which will be transmitted live on Telemundo.

On the other hand, tickets for the 2018 Billboard Music Awards, at MGM Grand Garden Arena on Might 20, go on sale Thursday, April 12 at axs.com. Last year’s Billboards were held at T-Mobile Arena and featured another Strip resident, Celine Dion.

ICYMI: Business owner Alex Meruelo closed on his acquisition of SLS Las Vegas last week, officially pointing the struggling Strip resort that was as soon as the iconic Sahara in a brand-new direction. Previous Stratosphere general manager Paul Hobson was named SLS’ new senior vice president and basic supervisor. Expect steady but significant change at this North Strip home and up the block at the Strat, now under the control of Golden Home entertainment.

In dining establishment news, the Cosmopolitan announced its next dining establishment addition, a refined Chinese experience called Red Plate, pertaining to the resort’s 3rd flooring this summer. Chef Yip Cheung was developing specialized dining alternatives for high rollers at Cosmo’s Talon Club and will direct this new Cantonese cooking area, set for the space previously occupied by the Italian pizza and wine bar D.O.C.G.

And if you need another need to visit downtown’s Flock & & Fowl dining establishment– other than that chef Sheridan Su was nominated for a James Beard Award this year– here’s another one. Bartender Adam Rains was crowned the winner of the regional semifinals of the Star of the Bar mixology competitors at Libertine Social, thanks to his innovative cocktail called the Well-known P.I.G., made with Whistlepig 10-year rye, maple syrup, lychee honey, aquafaba and lemon.

Welcome to your very first edition of the Rewind. As it ends up, there is excessive fun occurring on any provided weekend in Las Vegas, yet we are still going to bring you the highlights right here each week. Why Tuesday? The Vegas weekend does not typically end on Sunday night. No rest for the wicked.

My own personal weekend started with supper and drinks at the Mirage’s brand-new Osteria Costa, an upgraded Italian experience for the iconic resort from its gifted chef Michael LaPlaca. You can’t purchase poorly here, however for now I’ll highly advise the pizza margherita and linguine with clams. Trust me on this.

picture “> Denise Truscello/WireImage Ricky Martin at Park Theater Saturday night took me back to the Park Theater to see one of my preferred headliner shows on the Strip, Ricky Martin’s “All In” residency. The Puerto Rican superstar (who you might be seeing in the FX miniseries “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Criminal Activity Story”) had to cancel a program previously this month due to an injury but he remained in perfect shape this weekend, shaking bon-bons and whatnot. His charisma is matched by a scorching-hot dance troupe and band, both amongst the very best of their kind on the Strip. Once they break out his 2016 hit “Vente Pa’ Ca,” everybody was up and dancing for the remainder of the night. You do not need to be a fan of Martin to enjoy this energetic night of music and I highly advise you inspect it out when he returns in Might and June.

Among the greatest names in music made a surprise look Saturday night at the Cosmopolitan. Drake joined resident artist French Montana onstage at Marquee to carry out current hit “God’s Strategy,” then partied the night away with a group that included previous Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger. The hip-hop titans dined earlier that night at Beauty & & Essex, where gossip journalist Perez Hilton was also in your home, commemorating his 40th birthday. Hilton spent his Friday night taking in the amazing “Baz– A Musical Mash-Up” at Palazzo.
