Jose Canseco, Jim McMahon, Terrell Owens Staring In New Vegas Show

From Renegade Instagram

“Renegades” featuring Jose Canseco, Jim McMahon, and Terrell Owens will open at Caesars Palace on January 25, 2018. The show will take place at the tiny Cleopatra’s Barge. The idea of a tell-all show with these guys sounds like an amazing train wreck that I might need to see.

You might have access to meeting the guys at the show. Additionally, you might find Canseco in the poker room. There’s more information in the press release below.

Press Release:

New interactive show allows fans to get up
close and personal with sports legends including
Jose Canseco, Jim McMahon, Terrell Owens and Jimmy King

LAS VEGAS (December 20, 2017) – The rebels of sports are taking over the Las Vegas Strip with Renegades, a new interactive and totally unique show. Opening Thursday, Jan. 25 inside Cleopatra’s Barge, the intimate 180-seat theater at Caesars Palace, Renegades gives sports fans an up-close and personal experience with three of their favorite sports stars. No subject is off-limits as legends recount stories from their playing days to tabloid-making headlines and beyond. Hear directly from the greats as they share their eyewitness accounts of the biggest sports stories in history, while getting your chance to play the role of sports reporter lobbing questions at the athletes during the show’s panel roundtable finale.

The starting line-up includes baseball great Jose Canseco and two-time Super Bowl champion Jim McMahon. The Fab Five’s Jimmy King will appear during the first eight shows, with six-time NFL Pro Bowler Terrell Owens taking over starting Thursday, Feb. 8. **Please note that Terrell Owens will not appear in the shows from January 25 through February 4. The shows will be hosted by comedian Martin Montana, with Eric Jordan Young serving as writer, director and creative director. The Renegades roster will rotate athletes every three months.

A two-time World Series champion, Jose Canseco is best known by millions of fans around the world as the “Godfather of Steroids.” He spent 17 years in the Major Leagues “bashing” baseballs into the upper decks of stadiums and accomplished such impressive accolades as Rookie of the Year, American League MVP, six All Star Game appearances, 462 career homeruns, and became a member of the exclusive 40/40 club. As a controversial best-selling author, reality star, mixed martial arts enthusiast, competitive senior softball player, avid bowler, identical twin, and extreme long drive hitting golf ball philanthropist, you never know what the self-proclaimed “King of Twitter” will say or do next.

Jim McMahon is as well known for his on-the-field performance as he is for his off-field antics, including mooning sports writers when they asked about the status of an injury to his buttocks, and entering his first public event with the Bears holding a beer. Best known at times for being the controversial Chicago Bear who clashed with his coach, Mike Ditka, and NFL commissioner Pete Rozelle, McMahon earned two Super Bowl rings in 15 pro seasons with seven teams, the first win with the Bears in Super Bowl XX where he was the starting quarterback, and the second with the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl XXXI. He was also the star of the Bears’ rap video, “The Super Bowl Shuffle,” in which he proclaimed “I’m the punky QB known as McMahon.” He played college football at Brigham Young University, where he was a two-time All-American in 1980 and 1981, and was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1998. McMahon retired from the NFL following the 1996 season and has since worked as a restaurant owner and motivational speaker, and is also dedicated to supporting U.S. troops and veterans.

Jimmy King is most famous for his time spent on the famed University of Michigan Wolverines Fab Five, considered by many to be “the greatest class ever recruited” as it was the first time all five starters were freshmen. King, along with Ray Jackson, Juwan Howard, Chris Webber and Jalen Rose, reached the 1992 and 1993 NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Championship games as freshmen and sophomores. However, most of their wins and both of their Final Four appearances were vacated due to some of the players accepting money and gifts, compromising their amateur status. King played all four years at Michigan and averaged 15 points per game as a senior in 1995, and went on to play 12 years of professional basketball. Besides a having a thriving business career, over the last 20 years Jimmy has spent much of his time working with non-profit organizations that mentor youths in the Detroit area.

Philanthropist, entrepreneur, fitness expert, model, motivational speaker, humanitarian, loving father and the NFL’s six-time Pro Bowler Terrell Owens is a man on a mission. His extraordinary skills on the gridiron and elite athleticism raised the bar for wide receivers in the league. Owens is credited with being one of the most exciting and electrifying players to ever play the game, with 1,078 Receptions, 15,935 yards, and 153 touchdowns during the span of his 15-year career. Owens has garnered countless awards and accolades for his work on and off the field, including six Pro Bowl appearances, five time Associated Press All-Pro, recorded five seasons with 13 or more touchdowns, and the first to score a touchdown in seven straight “Monday Night Football” games. On September 15, 2008 in yet another remarkable Monday Night Game, Owens moved into second place on the NFL’s all-time career touchdown list. While he was one of the best players of his era, Owens also created a significant amount of controversy during his professional career, and also attracted attention for his flamboyant touchdown celebrations and rifts with teammates. Owens’ work on the field is only mirrored by his accomplishments off the field including partnering with the Alzheimer’s Association which is near and dear to his heart.

Martin Montana began his comedy career in Boston, performing at a bowling alley … showbiz! He then spent several years in New York City and now lives in Los Angeles. The co-creator of the web series “Middle Grown,” Martin has also written and acted in sketches on Funny or Die. In 2014 he began voicing the talking orange slice known as “Wedgehead” for the beer Shock Top in a series of hidden camera unscripted ads. The campaign immediately went viral with over 10 million views, expanding into television commercials for both Canada and the U.S., including a Super Bowl commercial in 2016. He can be heard on SiriusXM satellite radio, was a semi-finalist in NY’s Funniest Stand Up Competition, has been featured in the Boston Comedy Festival, and has performed at a Washington Nationals baseball game.

Eric Jordan Young first came to Las Vegas in 1993 for the production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s all-roller skating show, “Starlight Express.”  He starred in the Las Vegas production of “Rock of Ages” from 2015 through 2017 and appeared in over 2,300 performances of “Vegas! The Show.” Young earned a BFA with honors in Musical Theater, graduating from Ithaca College in 1993 and has appeared in a number of Broadway productions including “Chicago,” “Ragtime,” “Seussical the Musical” and “The Look of Love,” as well as several other off-Broadway and touring companies. Eric is currently the Resident Director of “BAZ a Musical Mash-Up,” now appearing at the Palazzo Resort and Casino and is currently performing in Las Vegas’ newest production, “The Cocktail Cabaret” at Caesars Palace.

Renegades is co-produced by Rich Lenkov, Michael Speyer and Jordan Fiksenbaum. “You think you know these athletes’ stories, but trust me, you have no idea!” said Lenkov. “Renegades will offer the most unique entertainment experience on The Strip, where some of the most infamous names in sports will take you through the highs and lows of their careers in an intimate setting.”

Renegades will be presented Thursday through Sunday at 8 p.m. beginning Thursday, Jan. 25. **Please note that Terrell Owens will not appear in the shows from January 25 through February 4. Tickets are $75 and $100, with a VIP package available for $300 which includes VIP seating, a photo, merchandise and a meet and greet with the athletes in Montecristo Cigar Bar after the show. Tickets go on sale Thursday, Dec. 21 at 10 a.m. PST and may be purchased online at ticketmaster.com. Find Renegades on Facebookand follow on Twitter and Instagram.

Caesars Las Vegas Hotel Rooms Ranked (2017 Update)

linqroom

 

Caesars Entertainment has a variety of room styles in every Las Vegas hotel. In addition to room styles, many hotels have multiple towers. The wrong hotel room can make for a bad trip.

Hopefully, this brief overview of the rooms and casino experience help you choose the best casino-resort to stay in Las Vegas. Here are my rankings for the different Caesars hotel rooms in Las Vegas.

  1. Caesars Palace – Just about all of the hotel rooms have been renovated in the past 5 years. Stay in Augustus or Octavius is you want to be away from the casino. The Julius Tower puts you right in the middle of the casino. The Palace Tower is closest to the pools. Augustus is my personal favorite at this massive casino.
  2. The Cromwell – The rooms are small but look good and functional. The views aren’t great but ask for a strip view. The other view is looking at the wall of the Flamingo hotel. Overall, the boutique hotel and casino is small but probably my favorite in the Caesars chain. There’s just a fun vibe here.
  3. The Linq – The rooms are tiny but well put together. The small rooms don’t feel as claustrophobic as you might think. The clean rooms, lively and large casino, and center strip location make this one of the best bargain hotels on the Vegas Strip. Upgrade to a suite for a separate bedroom and living room.
  4. Planet Hollywood – All of the rooms were updated this year. The room updates are bland and they no longer have the movie memorabilia many people loved. The Miracle Mile Shops give lots of dining options without going outside. The casino is always a party when the sun goes down. The rooms are fine but this is an especially fun place to eat, drink, and gamble.
  5. Flamingo – I like the Go rooms almost as much as I hate this casino. I’m in the minority with my feelings on the Flamingo but walking into this casino makes me itch. If you must stay here, choose the Go room or one of the newly renovated rooms.
  6. Bally’s – The Jubilee tower rooms are the high-end of average prices in Las Vegas. They’re nice for the price and the only real option if you’re staying at Bally’s. The oldest rooms will finally receive an update in 2018. This casino is a good option for low rollers on the Vegas Strip.
  7. Paris – Paris is one of the highest ranking hotels in the hierarchy of Caesars Las Vegas properties. I don’t think it’s as great as they do. Caesars Entertainment renovated many of the hotel rooms in 2017. If you’re staying here choose a Burgundy room.
  8. Harrah’s – Almost all of the hotel rooms at the casino have been or will be renovated. The Valley Tower rooms have all received a makeover. The property is the personification of mediocre. Everything is average but nothing is amazing. That said, the location is great if you want a value property near the center-north end of the Vegas Strip.
  9. Rio – The lone Caesars property off the Vegas Strip has all suites. The casino feels old and isolated. That said, it’s cheap for a large room. This is a good option for groups just looking for a cheap place to crash.

Caesars Entertainment is currently offering their Cyber Sale with rates starting at $29 (+ fees) or 25% off. Check the rates even if you already have a reservation. If they’re lower than you paid, Caesars will typically match prices.

Best Cheap Blackjack On The Vegas Strip

Cheap Blackjack Cards
Blackjack

There are about as many good cheap blackjack games on the Vegas Strip as you might have expected. In other words, there aren’t many. Where you do find good cheap blackjack you should expect that there are only one or two of these tables at most of the casinos listed below. They should be easy to spot since you’ll probably see a large crowd at these tables so you might have to wait for a seat.

For simplicity, I’m using $15 as the cut off for cheap blackjack and just listing the house edge of the games. I’m also listing the casinos alphabetically, and not by the smallest house edge. You can see the full survey here. The list is great and has information on all blackjack at every casino in Las Vegas.

Bally’s – House Edge: 0.57
Caesars Palace – House Edge: 0.57
The Cromwell – House Edge: 0.57
Excalibur – House Edge: 0.66
Flamingo (and Margaritaville) – House Edge: 0.57
The Linq – House Edge: 0.57
Harrah’s – House Edge: 0.55
New York – New York – House Edge: 0.48
Paris – House Edge: 0.57
Planet Hollywood – House Edge: 0.57
SLS Las Vegas – House Edge: 0.48
Treasure Island – House Edge: 0.46 and 0.48
Tropicana – House Edge: 0.57

Details Revealed For Montecristo Cigar Bar At Caesars Palace

I’m not a cigar smoker very often but every now and again friends visit and look to light up a stick. I’m always happy to partake and there’s a new bar opening where we can light up.

Montecristo Cigar Bar at Caesars Palace looks pretty sweet. The opening date hasn’t been made official but it should be open before March ends. Here are some details and renderings:

Press release:

In its golden anniversary year, Caesars Palace continues to expand the empire with the addition of Montecristo Cigar Bar, expected to open March 2016. The cigar lounge will pair notable cigar offerings with fine whiskeys, small bites and more, in a contemporary, organic 4,000 sq ft environment, designed by the award-winning architecture and design firm Rockwell Group, and executed by Bergman, Walls & Associates.

“Caesars Palace is in the midst of a beverage and nightlife renaissance with the refurbishment of our iconic Lobby Bar and Sports Book bars, the addition of the cutting edge VISTA Cocktail Lounge, and of course we are home to OMNIA nightclub, arguably the most important club in the world. These new outlets pair perfectly with our incomparable lineup of stars, celebrity chef offerings and luxury amenities,” said Caesars Palace Regional President Gary Selesner. “Montecristo Cigar Bar is a continuation of this renaissance, and will offer our guests the finest in cigars, whiskey and other fine beverages, while in a contemporary and inviting space featuring a walk-in humidor and cigar store, unlike anything else in the city. Our ambition is for Montecristo to be the best place in Las Vegas to smoke a cigar with a drink, while watching a stirring sporting event or, by special arrangement, as part of a gourmet meal from Old Homestead, Nobu or Restaurant Guy Savoy. We think this unique new offering is the perfect marriage of two world-famous brands, Caesars Palace and Montecristo.”

Cigar aficionados will appreciate the cigar retail area and humidor, offering renowned brands like its namesake Montecristo, Romeo Y Julieta, H. Upmann, Padron, La Flor Dominicana, Arturo Fuente, Ashton, San Cristobal, La Aroma de Cuba, Mi Amor, Las Antilles and My Father, as well as a variety of others. The retail shop and humidor are comprised of two intersecting circles with custom curved glass walls and shelving. In the retail shop, floating wood and glass jewel cases create an elegant display for the cigars. Top-of-the-line accessories will also be available for purchase, including S.T. Dupont. The spacious 400 sq ft humidor can store up to 1,000 cigars in a climate controlled environment, one of the largest in the city. The transparent walls visually connect the shop and humidor with the bar/lounge, highlighting the relationship between the three areas.

“The sheer size, elegance and commitment to customer satisfaction will make Montecristo Cigar Bar unique in the Las Vegas landscape,” said partner Michael Frey.  “It will be a true sanctuary for cigar lovers to enjoy a great cigar and libation.”

Intended to reflect and compliment the fine selection of cigars, Montecristo Cigar Bar offers guests sensible and classic beverages, as well as rare, highly-coveted spirits. For connoisseurs, the Captain’s List will intrigue and delight. Highlights include Pappy Van Winkle vintages, 18 year-old Elijah Craig Single Barrel, Thomas H Handy Sazerac “Antique Collection” and more. The Louis XII Perfect Pour will be offered tableside, served in crystal Riedel glassware. Cigar pairings and suggestions will also be a feature, taking out the guess work to provide guests a sensational combination.

Throughout the entire Montecristo Cigar Bar space is a state-of-the-art ventilation system, ensuring guests a comfortable and fresh visit. The 100-seat bar/lounge and gaming area offers guests four distinct experiences to enjoy a smooth cigar and libation– the signature bar, the library, the courtyard and the vault room. The centerpiece of the bar/lounge is a round bar volume featuring bar-top gaming and plush seating upholstered in light and dark neutral hues. Wood paneling on the walls and ceiling add warmth to the space. The library’s neutral material palette is both industrial and luxe, and gives the space a residential feel. An oversized video wall made up of nine television screens will bring sporting events to life, making it a premier spot to watch big games.

The courtyard space envelopes the back portion of Montecristo. Lush green design elements, a variety of seating groupings and skylight feature create an environment that blurs the line between indoors and outdoors. The 10-seat vault is the most intimate area in Montecristo, and will be highly coveted for groups looking to have their own space to enjoy the view.

“We are excited to be working once again with Caesars Palace,” said Shawn Sullivan, Partner, Rockwell Group. “We conceived Montecristo Cigar Bar as a modern and luxurious loft space with outdoor elements influenced by tobacco farms.”

Montecristo Cigar Bar will also serve guests a selection of dishes to compliment the space and its offerings, to include: a selection of domestic and imported cheeses, charcuterie, spicy pork rinds and house-made vegetable chips. Lavazza coffee will also be available, including tableside French pressed coffee.

Montecristo Cigar Bar will be located adjacent to Old Homestead, across from Nobu Restaurant and Lounge.

Virgil’s BBQ Officially Coming To The Linq In 2016

Virgil's BBQ
Virgil’s BBQ Rendering

Years ago Virgil’s BBQ was one of my favorite restaurants in New York City. There wasn’t much if any, barbeque in NYC at the time so Virgil’s felt almost like a delicacy.

I have many many fond memories and fuzzy times at Virgil’s in New York. For that reason alone I can’t wait for Virgil’s BBQ to open at The Linq.

Ever since Carmine’s opened at Caesars Palace a couple of years ago there have been rumors about Virgil’s opening since they’re operated by the same company. It looks like the rumors will finally come true. The rendering above looks cool. I can’t wait to see the real thing.

Here are details and the press release:

Alicart Restaurant Group will expand the company’s presence in Las Vegas with the addition of Virgil’s Real Barbecue at The LINQ Promenade, opening in the summer of 2016. Boasting locations in New York City and at Atlantis in the Bahamas, Virgil’s will expand west, joining Carmine’s NYC’s Legendary Family Style Italian Restaurant, which the company opened at The Forum Shops at Caesars in 2013.

The Las Vegas location of Virgil’s will span 14,000 square feet and be highlighted by live music programming nightly, private dining rooms seating up to 300 guests and three outdoor spaces, including a poolside patio at The LINQ Hotel & Casino.

“The success of Carmine’s in Las Vegas laid the groundwork for expansion in this market,” said Alicart CEO Jeffrey Bank. “We are excited to bring barbecue and Virgil’s to the city and have found an ideal location at The LINQ.”

“The LINQ Promenade has become the epicenter of the famous Las Vegas Strip offering the most dynamic selection of restaurants, bars and retailers. It’s the perfect location for the first West Coast location of Virgil’s,” said Bob Morse hospitality president for Caesars Entertainment. “The restaurant offers a unique atmosphere for our visitors that will truly enhance The LINQ Promenade experience.”

The menu from Executive Chef Neal Corman, author of Virgil’s Barbecue Road Trip Cookbook, features the world famous BBQ tastes of Tennessee, Kentucky, Texas, the Carolina’s and Missouri to offer a true sampling of barbecue in its many and varied regional interpretations. The menu was developed after extensive research in the back roads of the south and highlights the best of the local styles including Memphis pork ribs and chicken, Carolina pulled pork and Texas beef brisket.

Virgil’s meats are smoked at a low temperature over indirect heat for up to ten hours with a unique mix of hickory, oak and fruit woods in order to impart the most flavor and to keep the meat from drying out. To complement the main menu of BBQ specialties, Virgil’s also offers a generous selection of traditional sides like barbecue beans, coleslaw and cheese grits and Southern-style desserts like banana pudding and Key Lime and sweet potato pies.

Marriott To Buy Starwood and Invades the Vegas Strip

Marriott
Marriott

Marriott announced that they will be buying Starwood Hotels this morning. This comes on the heels of Starwood announcing that SLS Las Vegas will be a part of their Tribute Collection last week (see article on Travel Zork). Part of the SLS connection is that Starwood would be changing the Lux tower at SLS into W Las Vegas.

A Starwood sale wasn’t a secret but Hyatt was becoming the favorite to buy them (see article on Travel Zork). This deal was made because most of Marriott’s rooms before the purchase were in the United States. About 2/3rds of Starwood hotel rooms are outside of the United States. Marriott now has 1.1 million hotel rooms around the world.

Back to Vegas.

Starwood’s biggest connection with Vegas is through its current affiliation with Caesars Entertainment. The SLS program will begin in December and W Las Vegas will open mid-late 2016. Marriott’s current Vegas Strip affiliation is with the Cosmopolitan. Since the Cosmo was sold last year it’s been rumored that they will eventually join Hilton in some way.

Might the Cosmopolitan become a Starwood hotel?  I know at least one person that will lose his mind if that happens.

Details on the merger of the programs haven’t been released yet. The press release is more financially driven. It’s possible, but unlikely, that Starwood and Marriott will remain separate brands that would keep their individual loyalty programs.

The deal isn’t expected to be completed until sometime in 2016. Unless relationships change these are the hotels on the Vegas Strip that will become Marriott hotels:

  • Bally’s
  • Caesars Palace
  • Cosmopolitan
  • The Cromwell
  • Flamingo
  • Harrah’s
  • The Linq
  • Paris
  • Planet Hollywood
  • Rio
  • SLS Las Vegas 
  • W Las Vegas

Marriott would be the hotel partner for almost half of the hotels on the Vegas Strip (12 of 26 or so). That’s kind of a big deal. Look forward to more information to follow next year.

PS: Starwood Hotels and Starwood Capital are not the same company. This old rumor is probably just be a coincidence.

Will Grandissimo Be The New Name Of Las Vegas Club?

Las Vegas Club Casino Downtown Las Vegas
Las Vegas Club

Grandissimo was the name of a hotel and casino that Jay Sarno, founder of Caesars Palace and Circus Circus, was thinking about when he retired. The dream never came to fruition and was over after he passed away in 1984.

Sarno was an interesting man and you can learn more about him in the book Grandissimo: The First Emperor of Las Vegas: How Jay Sarno Won a Casino Empire, Lost It, and Inspired Modern Las Vegas.

In September Gambling Invest uncovered the following information about the name Grandissimo on the web:

Gambling Invest’s domain monitoring service uncovered that at the end of July, The D Las Vegas casino became the new owner of several “grandissimo” domains, including grandissimo.net, grandissimovegas.com and grandissimolv.com.

…The whois details of the three domain names were updated in July this year when The D Las Vegas casino replaced Dickinson Wright as the listed owners, but Gambling Invest believes that the Michigan law firm had registered the domains on behalf of Derek and Greg Stevens, the Detroit brothers who control The D and that in January 2014, Dickinson Wright helped obtain a trademark for Grandissimo in relation to restaurant, hotel and entertainment services.

If I remember correctly (tough before coffee) Derek Stevens purchased alternate URL names before revealing that Fitzgerald’s would be renamed The D.

These URL purchases don’t mean that Grandissimo will be the new name of Las Vegas Club but it’s entirely possible.

Expect Stevens to address the future of the Las Vegas Club on the next episode of the Vegas Gang podcast which will be recorded live at The D this weekend with Grandissimo author David Schwartz.
