contact) Tuesday, Might 15, 2018|2 a.m. I’ll be investing most of this week with my running shoes on, burning off the calories built up at the 12th annual Vegas Uncork ‘d weekend, where me and all my foodie friends consumed whatever we could discover and talked up as lots of famous chefs as we might see. On the red carpet for Friday night’s Grand Tasting, Man Fieri obtained a professional photographer’s camera and turned the tables, only to obtain clowned by fellow restaurant guy-turned-TV star Graham Elliot. “This is like the Super Bowl,” the “Cake Boss” himself, Friend Valastro, informed me. “Take a look at all these chefs! They’re the best in the world and to be part of this group is unique. It makes you seem like you remain in the club, although I’m a baker.” Pal is a baker who might be opening more principles at Venetian and Palazzo, so stay tuned.
I caught up with Elliot on Saturday at Picnic in Park, an Uncork ‘d event showcasing MGM Resorts chefs. The Chicago chef and restaurateur and judge on “MasterChef” and “MasterChef Junior” operates Coast at MGM Cotai in Macau and would like to expand his relationship with a Vegas restaurant. “It’s always exciting to be around your contemporaries like this but likewise humbling due to the fact that there is such culinary success,” he stated. “To be tied in with MGM is really cool but to come out and have a restaurant here and actually belong of the Las Vegas scene is something I ‘d enjoy to be able to do.”
is going out for you to catch Elton John’s program at the Colosseum. While we were commemorating the Strip’s wonderful cuisine, Lady Gaga was celebrating Elton John at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace Saturday night. She Instagrammed shots from her private airplane with the caption “Tiny Dancer flies her way to the Rocket Male.” She sang and danced and loved “The Million Dollar Piano” as much as the rest of us, but we’ve never had Elton devote “Your Song” to us the way he did for Gaga. May 15, 16 and 17 are his final shows at the Colosseum; Gaga will take her location as a Vegas headliner at Park Theater in December.
Christina Aguilera just revealed her first big tour in Ten Years and the 22-city trek includes a stop at the Colosseum on Oct. 27. Tickets are on sale at livenation.com beginning Might 18. Aguilera’s been constructing buzz behind new single “Speed up” featuring hip-hop stars Ty Dolla $ign and 2 Chainz– both resident performers at Drai’s– and if the trip is a winner, let’s throw her name into the mix of next-generation headliner alternatives.
Found at the Venetian’s hip cocktail lounge The Dorsey drinking on Spicy Flamingos: comic and actor Craig Robinson, who you know from TV shows like “The Workplace” and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and films like “Completion” and “Hot Tub Time Device.” I choose the Montañista myself, however those Flamingos are good. And spicy.
Bodybuilding icon and four-time Mr. Olympia Jay Cutler made the rounds, capturing T.I. at Drai’s Friday night and stopping off at the Palms over the weekend for a preview at the Scotch 80 steakhouse, one of three new locations soft-opening at the off-Strip resort this week.
More proof that “Opium” is off to a terrific start at the Cosmopolitan: The Spiegelworld show’s brand project won a Rose Gold Award in the advertising and integrated marketing categories at the recent Muse Creative Awards, an international competitors commemorating excellence in the art of communications. Now we’ll wait and see if it wins an award in the category of “A lot of Theatrical Usage of Bananas” in the upcoming LV Sun Weekend Rewind Awards. I’m still trying to find the ideal place to hold that ceremony.
