Las Vegas News of the Week May 5th, 2019

We have been thinking about a way to bring you Las Vegas News each week. We think that a quick bullet point article each week with quick links to some of the happenings in Vegas is the best way to go about it. Some weeks in Las Vegas may be slower than others but hopefully we will be able to keep you up on the news happenings in Sin City this way.

  • The Wynn now has free self parking for everyone. The Wynn Las Vegas is the first resort to cancel paid self parking for it’s guests. Valet Parking is still available to guests and non-guests who spend $50 and get validated. Let’s hope that the other resorts on The Las Vegas Strip follow suite. The paid parking issue has been a hot topic since it’s introduction. ( Source: Wynn Las Vegas nixes fees for self-parking)
  • Cirque du Soleil announces new show ‘R.U.N’ at The Luxor. The show opens October 24, 2019 and is a tribute to stunts and live action. The new show will likely be in the space previously occupied by Chris Angel.

  • Marijuana Lounges have been approved in Las Vegas by City Council. There is a large misconception that cannabis is legal everywhere in Nevada but the fact is that it can only be used on residential premises. The approval of lounges is big news for Las Vegas but don’t expect to see one on The Strip anytime soon. (Source: Fox5Vegas)
  • Renovations of the Fremont Street Experience Canopy have begun. They will be updating the lighting system, adding new digital content as well as adding interactive features such as being able to add personal messages. The lights will be 3x brighter if you can imagine that. Don’t worry the light show will carry on nightly during the renovation period. (Source: LasVegasNow)

Las Vegas Photo of the Week May 5th, 2019

This weeks Las Vegas Photo of the Week takes us to Binion’s Gambling Hall and Hotel on Fremont Street. Binion’s has been around since the 1950’s and is still going strong today. Binion’s is one of our go to places when visiting the Fremont Street Experience in Las Vegas. You can get your picture taken with Binion’s Billions which is a real stack of a billion dollars (enclosed in glass). We also recommend Top of Binion’s Steakhouse which sits on the 24th floor and over spectacular views of Las Vegas. It is a true Old School Las Vegas dining experience. We recommend the Chicken Fried Lobster.
