Prince Badass!

Though this has nothing to do with Vegas-It was revealed today that Prince Harry has been fighting the war against terror. What a man! Britain's Defense Ministry confirmed today that Prince Harry is fighting on the front line in Afghanistan. Protect the face at all costs! Details of his Royal Hotness' three-month tour had previously been kept secret. The Prince, a second lieutenant in the Household Cavalry, is third in line to the throne, behind his father Prince Charles and his big brother Prince William.Harry's uncle (and Fergie's -- princess not the singer -- ex) Prince Andrew also served during the Falkland War. Cheers love.....

Bette Parties at Pure amid Tax Evasion charges!

Wow! 62 never looked so good! Bette Midler opened her new show at Caesars Palace in the Colloseum last night and afterword she went to Pure Nightclub for the afterparty.

Pure Nightclub was raided this week by federal authorities on charges of tax evasion. This is not a surprise as most Pure Management clubs seem to be run by very shady managers and executives. Its a amazing it took this long to get this investigation going, considering the prices at Pure are a crime! To get "europian bottle sevice" the latest insult to the club scene here, you have to pay a $500.00 deposit to reserve and then kiss a security guys butt to be let in and escort you to your booth were you will be required to pay for 4 bottles of alcohol at $ 300.00 a bottle (for $36.00 Grey Goose). Rediculous, considering there is a time limit on how long you may use the booth.

Pure Management Group owns some of the most popular venues in Las Vegas, including the Pussycat Dolls Lounge and Venus Pool Club at Caesars; Coyote Ugly in New York-New York; Fat Tuesdays in the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace; Tangerine Lounge & Nightclub at Treasure Island; and Social House at Treasure Island. The company's success has resulted in high-profile investors such as Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf, Shaquille O'Neal and Celine Dion. News of the government's interest in Pure is reverberating through a scene that in a few short years blossomed from a Las Vegas sideshow to an industry worth hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue. Last year Pure in Caesars Palace was named the number one night spot in the country by E! Entertainment channel.

And as for Bette, her show is getting mixed reviews. Midler has signed on to perform approximately 100 concerts a year at the 4,100-seat Colosseum as part of a minimum two-year deal. Her show, which is scheduled to premiere Feb. 20, 2008, will be presented five nights a week. Tickets are already on sale for the first couple of weeks, with prices ranging from $95 to $250.

Word on the street...

This is just one of the rcent posts on about the unhappy staff at JAYZs 40/40 Club at the new Palazzo. It has been said that the palce is horrible and the patrons are cheap. Also, the manager a person names Des, is a lunatic and is very abusive. Why this place even opened at the absolutely gorgeous new Palazzo is a complete mystery.
Reply to: job-576544115@craigslist.orgDate: 2008-02-16, 6:00PM PSTOK...Let me give all of you my personal, professional, insight opinion. And PLEASE forward this information to whomever you feel needs to know in order to save themselves from making the same huge misfortunate mistake i did! There are two sides to every story. There is good news and bad news. First the good news....thinking....thinking...wait still thinking...oh yes the facility itself as a sports lounge/club is beautiful! Very nice facility, very nice layout, color design etc. But thats about it! Thats where any and all good news about the place begins and ends. Now the bad news..First and foremost the management team is horrible! horrible! horrible! Im not saying they were supposed to be the best people i would ever encounter running a business here in my hometown of las vegas. But i have been in and out of the nightclub/restaurant industry for over 10yrs, and these people are terribly rude, ungrateful, disrespectful, spiteful, selfish, cowardly, hoodlum, rugrats! Next...this place will not last here in las vegas GUARANTEED!!! You/they/them cannot run an east coast thuggish ruggish bone venue here in las vegas with that east coast attitude. Rappers rapped about east coast..west coast shit and have died over their shit! Same is going to happen to the operating managers of this place if they stay here in las vegas. Why do you think they have metro on property every club night!?! Next...We the people of las vegas are industry workers. with industry connections so tight, that everyone knows someone who knows somone who is somone somewhere. Now thats where someone needs to tell someone about the health code violations! need i say more? Lasty...Im going to close with this last comment: To the venetian/palazzo and sands shareholders investors, sub-investors, tennants, presidents, CEO's, COO's, CFO's, take control of your sub leased 26,000 sq ft property before it ruins your trademark 5-diamond award image!

Cher is coming to Caesars!

Cher will headline Caesars Palace, Vegas
Mon Feb 11, 12:18 PM ET
LAS VEGAS - She has released 25 albums that have sold more than 100 million copies and has enjoyed a career that has included concerts, recordings, Broadway, TV, film acting and directing, and books. Now she's taking her show to Vegas. The Oscar, Emmy and Grammy award winner said in a statement that she will begin a three-year, 200-show engagement May 6.
"Cher's name in one word encapsulates icon, award-winning legend, and captivating performer," said Caesars Palace President Gary Selesner. "Caesars is pleased to welcome Cher back."
"Cher at The Colosseum" is scheduled to include hit songs from her career of more than 40 years, with choreography, costumes and special effects. It is a partnership with AEG Live.
Cher will alternate performances at the 4,300-seat Colosseum with other headline acts Elton John and Bette Midler.
In December, Celine Dion ended a five-year run at the theater, which opened in 2002 as home of her show, "A New Day ...".
John, who began playing at the Colosseum in 2004 when Dion's show was dark, is now booked to play his show, "The Red Piano," through 2008. Midler's "The Showgirl Must Go On" is set to open Feb. 20 for a two-year run of 100 shows per year.
Cher's 90-minute show will feature choreography from Doriana Sanchez and lighting, special effects and costumes by Bob Mackie. Engagements will run four nights a week on Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. Ticket prices are from $95 to $250

MGM Monte Carlo to reopen Feb 15

MGM Mirage officials said late Friday that the Monte Carlo, closed since Jan. 25 because of a fire atop the resort, would reopen in time for Presidents Day weekend.
Portions of the 32-story, 3,000-room Strip resort's rooftop facade were damaged by the late-morning blaze. The fire caused the evacuation of an estimated 5,000 guests and 1,000 employees and led to the temporary shutdown of Las Vegas Boulevard.
MGM Mirage moved its guests to other company resorts the day of the fire and transferred Monte Carlo reservations to other MGM Mirage properties during the past two weeks.
"After what can only be described as an incredible effort by the best team of employees and contractors in the business, the Monte Carlo family will be in place Feb. 15 to welcome guests for Presidents Day weekend," Monte Carlo President and COO Anton Nikodemus said in a statement.

What the?

Update: Katie Rees, former Miss Nevada was arrested in Las Vegas.

Rees was pulled over shortly before 3:00 AM for a traffic violation. According to Las Vegas police, when they attempted to arrest her, "she became physically aggressive towards the officer."Cops tell us they were just going to cite Rees but when she went nuclear, they took her in. FOX5 in Las Vegas broke the story.Rees was famously stripped of her crown after salacious photos surfaced, showing Rees in some interesting positions with a few other babes. Poor mixed up kid. A smile could have helped, mmmmmaybe not.

Paging Mr Trump...

TMZ is reporting that former Miss Nevada Katie Rees was arrested in Las Vegas last night for assaulting a police officer. Details to follow.

Maybe they will show the intake footage at Clark County Detention Center on the reality show "Jail" on Teusday night. The episode featuring O.J. Simpsons recent arrest in Las Vegas airs on Feb.12th.
