Vital Vegas Podcast, Ep. 104: Front Yard, Solo Bubble Craps and Sheer Kaos

It’s been a minute since our last podcast episode, but we’re making up for it with a non-stop cavalcade of incoherent blathering.

We’ve got the inside scoop on Elon Musk’s tunnel project, the closing on Kaos at Palms, the sales of Rio, Bellagio and Circus Circus and the closure of “Blanc de Blanc” at Sahara, for starters.

The Las Vegas Convention Center is getting drilled. Hey, it’s Vegas.

Then, we blaze through all the Las Vegas news you need to sound like a know-it-all at your local bar.

It’s all the stuff we don’t have time to blog about because we have a life: B.B.D.’s at Palace Station closes, Resorts World’s opening has been pushed back to 2021, China Tang will close at MGM Grand, Carnegie Deli closes at Mirage in February, Red Square closed at Mandalay Bay, Chick-fil-A and Saltgrass are coming to Golden Nugget, Steaks & Alibis will replace Center Cut at Flamingo, Vortex is dead at Linq, Starburst is done at Grand Bazaar Shops, Naked City Pizza closed at El Cortez and more.

We also chat with Christina Ellis about the just-opened Front Yard at Ellis Island, and find out more about the new solo “bubble craps” game from Joseph Friedman of Interblock Gaming.

Front Yard Ellis Island

“Long-awaited” is an understatement when it comes to the Front Yard.

There’s something for everyone on this episode of the podcast, including a listicle, “12 Meh Restaurants in Las Vegas.” Hey, somebody has to say it.

Kick back, hit “play” and be transported to Sin City through the highly overrated magic of podcasting.
