Eye On Vegas - We Deliver!

The MAIN Event: Round 2
The buzz is building around town for Las Vegas Food and Beverage Magazine's next industry bash, The MAIN Event: Round 2. The month the event will take place under the stars at the brand new nightclub Tangerine on Thursday, August 26th. The who's who of the industry turned out to celebrate our last industry appreciation event and this event is going to be even bigger and better. As promised we have redefined the social networking event in Las Vegas and you do not want to miss out. Tangerine is the brand new nightclub concept from Robert Frey who also operates Coyote Ugly, Bikini's and the yet-named nightclub project being built at Caesars Palace. 
Our sponsor list for this event includes the introduction of a brand new product; Emerald Vodka. Emerald is part of the portfolio from the new liquor division of Bruno Laclotte's Regency Wines Inc. Emerald is produced by famed distiller Russ Dale using pure Canadian winter wheat and baby spring corn.. What makes Emerald so special is that it is produced at a small, family owned distillery in Winnipeg, Canada where it is carefully handcrafted and slow distilled six times. Remy Amerique will be bringing aboard their new Damrak Gin, which offers a fresh new approach to the non-dry gin market. Sam Adams will be offering their Sam Adams Light, which takes the great tasting micro-crafted beer and adds a light beer twist. Last, but certainly not least, Banfi Vinters will bringing some great wines to the party from their extensive portfolio. 

Hooter's Hotel!
Look for big changes to take place at the San Remo Hotel over the next year as they have announced a joint venture with the Hooters Restaurant Chain. You guessed it, the San Remo is going to be transformed into the first ever Hooters Casino Hotel. The property will begin the transformation almost immediately but will stay open as it takes place. Expect to see the Hooters girls throughout the hotel along with the expected Hooters Restaurant outlet.. The property will also host a Dan Marino's Fine Foods and Spirits, which ironically will eventually compete with the Shula's Steakhouse (as in his former Coach Don Shula) opening up down the street. Also expect the sushi bar to remain, with a new look, and a Hooters Beach Club. Hooters President Neil Kiefer, commented "We think we have a winner in bringing the notoriety and wackiness of our brand together with this great location and the experienced and dedicated folks of the San Remo." Expect a fall 2005 grand opening date and remember where you heard it first!

Project Back On!
News out of the MGM Grand has the Metro Tower project back on the table, just with a slight twist. Last year the Metro Tower project surfaced as a new look to the Emerald Tower wing of the MGM. The Emerald Tower is the oldest part of the hotel and was actually constructed using the structure of the old Marina Hotel which the MGM replaced on the Trop & Blvd corner. The project was somewhat similiar to Mandalay Bay's The Hotel where-by it would consist of a seperate lobby, check-in, staff and F&B outlets. We hear that the property had problems funding the project so it quietly went away. The new talk out of the jolly green giant consists of a project that sounds mighty similiar. This time though, the Metro Tower name has been changed to The West Wing. All of this as the joint 'The Residences' project with Turnberry continues to move forward and the 29th floor goes under renovations to build loft-like suites/residences. More news as it comes ..............

Olives Re-Opens
Todd English's acclaimed Olives Restaurant at the Bellagio will reopen to the public on Thursday, August 19th. The restaurant has been closed for renovations that were spearheaded by famed designer Jeffery Beers. The new warm and rustic look also comes with a new menu and the return of veteran Olives Chef Steve Mannino, who will continue to bring innovative new menu items to the table, literally. A slight name change has also taken place as the restaurant will officially open with the moniker Todd English's Olives.

Women in the Kitchen
The Women Chef's and Restauranteurs organization is holding their first Local Exchange Event on Tuesday, September 21st. Registration begins at 6:30 with a meeting and networking event to follow. The host for this first meeting is none other than Chef Wendy Jordan and Rosemary's Restaurant. Appetizers will be served with a cash bar available for cocktails.

Risque Business
The Post-Clique era at Risque is moving forward with the addition of Zarnaz "Z" Zandi as the new Marketing Manager. Zandi, formerly of Spundae, will help fill the void that was left when Alex Cordova and Clique went their seperate way a few months back. The word out of GM Michael Cornthwaite's office is that the club is business as usual but some staffers hinted differently. Either way, VIP Host Nicole Shaul makes any evening at the club a pleasure and has been able to keep a strong local presence around the club. They have been offering an alternative to the Body English vs. Light Sunday night battle with an under-mentioned Appreciation Night for locals that includes the Vamps Girlie Revue burlesque show.

Speaking of Alex Cordova and Clique, he has teamed up with Garrick Edwards to put forth a new weekly event Monday nights at Moorea Beach. The event, aptly named Neptune, offers a sophisticated look at the pool party. "Moorea is a great outlet that many locals don't get to experience because we all work on the weekends" said Cordova referring to the parties that go off every Friday & Saturday night at Moorea "so we started Neptune as a great outdoor party for the industry locals." With GodSpeed still rocking at the Foundation Room and Rum Jungle's Industry Night also taking place Mandalay Bay is definately going to be a happening spot on Monday nights. 

A Shadow of It's Former Self
A recent stop by Caesars' Shadow Lounge reflected a pretty dismaying sight. The flair bar sports some of the best bottle-tosser's in town, however, the room was a disaster. Tables were littered with glasses, bottles and trash and the floor was covered in a carpet of debris with bar stools scattered throughout the room. The Manager On Duty, who will not be named, seems disconcerned by it all. "I'm just babysitting this room until they find the next twenty-something manager to run it. I really don't care because its not my problem." Wow, well The Eye hopes that they are taking better care of the new Spanish Steps Bar because we remember the days when John Moreschi and Xania Woodman had Shadow running as the best flair bar in town. 

Curve Nightclub at the Aladdin Hotel just unveiled their new weekly Thursday event Gravity. They feature a "free flowing vodka bar" starting at 10:30P that continues on until 2A. Any interested parties can contact Nicholas Quintanar for more information and VIP reservations.

Dandy Danny
Danny Gans has announced that he will again be performing a 'locals night' show in October. The show is for locals only and comes with a drastically reduced sticker price of $25 with all proceeds going to the Lili Claire Foundation. Due to the lower price and great charity that is involved expect tickets to go fast. For more information visit Gans' website, http://beautifulpeople.c.topica.com/maacyvoaa9ft3bNJ3ABe/

This Flamingo Can Sing
Internationally acclaimed recording artist Ilona! will be singing during an appearance this weekend at the Flamingo Hotel pool. The Polish diva held the crowd captivated this past weekend as she introduced the American market to her new, high energy sound. After the show she signed autographs and gave out copies of her CD for free thanks to www.dancefame.com. It was such a success that the Flamingo is bringing her back for another show this Saturday at 5:30P. Look for her performing at the lower pool, or just follow the beat.

On The Vine
Gino LoPinto's weekly event at Plush Nightclub, The VINE, continues to grow.. Reports have the numbers steadily increasing as people continue to turn out for the live jazz, happy hour party taking place every Friday afternoon. The Summerlin hot spot is also hosting an 80's coverband concert this Thursday coined the '80's Intoxication Concert'. It will feature tributes to Adam and The Ants, New Order and Depeche Mode among others. 

Cirque de Savior
It seems that Cirque De Soleil is coming to the rescue of retired Olympic athletes. A perfect example is the story of Hungarian gymnast Zoltan Supola. Supola retired after the 2000 Sydney Olympics and found job prospects limited for a pommel horse specialist. "Even if you have some world championships or some medals, once I got that it's like, 'What am I going to do?'" said the gymnast. Supola landed on his feet, literally, as a performer with Cirque De Soliel, who also has 17 other former Olympians in its ranks. Members of the Cirque team are currently in Athens scouting the next batch of potential performers.
