There are always big plans for Las Vegas. Majestic Las Vegas is the latest project announced for Sin City. We have a while before it is scheduled to open. The new non-gaming luxury hotel is set to see its first guests in 2023.
Visiting Las Vegas is sometimes about enjoying a life that you don’t normally live. Before moving to Las Vegas I often used my trips Las Vegas to explore living above my means for a day or two. My friends and I would often take one night to live above our means.
Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment (MGE) has entered into an agreement to operate the 60,000-square foot casino at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas (formerly the Hard Rock Hotel) when it opens in late 2020. The deal isn’t 100% set in stone as MGE must receive regulatory approval by the Nevada Gaming Commission.
This week Caesars Entertainment announced the sale of Rio All Suites Hotel & Casino . The deal made news on the day the deal happened but quickly subsided because nothing will change after the sale is completed. Casino sales are usually big news. However, the sale of Rio isn’t a traditional sale.
Just when you thought you’ve seen it all, Happy Place opens at Mandalay Bay. This self-described “interactive, immersive pop-up experience” has been called “the most Instagrammable pop-up in America” by Urban Daddy. It’s entirely possible this is a fitting tagline for Happy Place.
I finally visited the completely renovated Park MGM Las Vegas. I saw construction at the former Monte Carlo monthly over the past two-plus years. This was my first visit to the property with construction complete (for now). For context, my visit happened the day after Mama Rabbit (home of the 5% surcharge on drinks) opened.
