David Copperfield reveals secret magic museum in new book – PHOTOS

The man who has made the Statue of Liberty vanish and walked through the Great Wall of China, strives to travel through time. Living in the moment won’t suffice for David Copperfield. This is true in his stage show at MGM Grand Theater, which employs black-and-white film clips depicting Copperfield’s father, and a time-worn, handwritten letter written decades ago. The illusionist’s zeal to span generations is celebrated on an even grander scale at his own private museum of magic. He’s dubbed it the David Copperfield International Museum and Library of the Conjuring Arts, but passersby won’t find an elaborate sign outside, or any indication at all of what lies inside the 40,000-square-foot, one-time warehouse just a few miles from his eponymous theater where he performs 15 shows a week.

Palm Springs Caesars Palace-inspired estate lists for $11.8M

A touch of Las Vegas in Palm Springs is now available. Located at 911 Juarez Ave., the stunning Caesars Palace-inspired estate in the exclusive Rose Hill enclave of Las Palmas Heights has been listed for $11.8 million. This iconic estate was originally designed by renowned architecture firm Buff & Hensman in 1972 and included structural and interior designs that resembled features of Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. The home was first constructed for Jerry Zarowitz (of Caesars Palace fame) in the 1970s and the inspiration for the original design.

Lady Gaga’s Back in Las Vegas! An Up-Close Look at Her Residency and Its Knockout Wardrobe

Before visiting Las Vegas for the first time-to see Lady Gaga’s “Jazz & Piano” residency, which has returned, post COVID-19 shut-down, to Dolby Live at the Park MGM-I thought of the city as a place powered by big corp hucksterism, cash burn and drunkenness, fish-hooking those prone to chasing long shot fantasies. In pop culture, Vegas’s scamminess has been lionized (the Ocean’s franchise), satirized (Ken Jeong’s Leslie Chow in The Hangover), and sexualized (Showgirls). And yeah, Vegas has packed heavyweight punches when it comes to entertainment (Céline, Britney, et al.), yet much of the city’s programming has felt manufactured for surface thrill in the same way a slot machine’s neon burns through the dimness of the casino floor, advertising its next payout ($12,650!). As such and for so long, Las Vegas was a no-go. But I was wrong to be so dismissive.

Where to Find Buffets Open Inside Casinos in Las Vegas

Culinary trailblazers back in the 1940s found a way to keep gamblers inside the resorts with cheap food, and lots of it. El Rancho Vegas, the Strip’s first resort, came up with the chuck wagon, the earliest version of the modern day buffet to turn up in Las Vegas. As UNLV’s Center for Gaming Research writes, “quantity was usually emphasized over quality.”

The Palms’ New Owners Share Property Plans For The 1st Time

The Palms’ soon-to-be owners are ready to get to work. Several months after announcing a $650-million deal to buy the Palms from Red Rock Resorts, the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians shared details for the first time publicly about its plans to reshape and reopen the off-Strip resort. San Manuel is targeting the first half of 2022 to reopen the Palms for the first time since the COVID-19 shutdown last spring, and the tribe has plans to run the property with a focus on gaming and Las Vegas locals. The San Manuel Gaming and Hospitality Authority, a subsidiary of the tribe, must receive gaming regulatory approval before it can own and operate the hotel-casino. Upon approval, which the authority hopes will come in November or December, San Manuel can begin working.

Newkirk’s Notes

Access Vegas Founder Ted NewkirkHello From Las Vegas! – October is perhaps the most perfect weather month of the year here. While always a few days of exceptions, wind has been calm, and temps have been close to 80F. So, I sure can’t complain!

Paris/Bally’s Don’t Appear To Be Sold For Now – Caesars (Eldorado) Entertainment has been very open about wanting to sell a property. And, related or not, the food and shopping options at both Paris and Bally’s have seen tons of closures (especially if you include that ugly shopping area in front of Bally’s). This spurred the thought that the changes or contract non-renewals were in preparation for a sale.

So, who is this good for? MGM Resorts. Who is it bad for? Unfortunately, everyone else. Even if you are an MGM player.

– Is Bally’s Still For Sale, and Why Are They Closing Restaurants and Shops?

Martha Stewart’s First Las Vegas Restaurant Is Coming to the Strip in 2022

Long rumored, but now confirmed by a construction permit filing, celebrity entrepreneur, TV personality, and culinary tutor Martha Stewart will debut her first restaurant on the Las Vegas Strip at Paris Las Vegas sometime in 2022. Early rumors, first floated by the VitalVegas blog in July, pointed to long-time Stewart friend and hip-hop star Snoop Dogg as a collaborator, but initial paperwork only names the venture as the Martha Stewart Restaurant. A spokesperson for parent company Caesars Entertainment previously chose not to confirm or deny any speculation about a restaurant from Martha Stewart opening at the French-themed casino and hotel. The resort allocated an estimated budget of $100,000 to “selectively” demolish an existing space on the Strip property to make way for the new restaurant.

Newkirk’s Notes

Access Vegas Founder Ted NewkirkHello From Las Vegas! – COVID numbers are generally trending in the right direction here in Nevada, and if all goes well, the mask mandate will fall in a few weeks. Most likely just for the vaccinated (on a voluntary level). I have to believe it will be quite some time (think months) before casinos go back to a “no mask” rule based on security concerns.

Having said that, enforcement is very lax. Both in the tourism areas and in the rest of Las Vegas. Even with the mandate, I’m getting used to seeing unmasked people when I’m out on errands and such. Granted, I can’t speak for every business nor every gaming property. So, keep your mask with you. And as previously noted, please carefully check the vaccine proof and/or mask requirements before you buy tickets to any kind of entertainment.

The Sale Of The Cosmo – I wanted to give a little time for the dust to settle on this one. Few saw the Cosmo sale to the MGM Resorts coming. Don’t get me wrong: It wasn’t so much a shock. However, strong rumors had everyone from Tribal Gaming concerns to the Golden Nugget owner and CNBC Billion Dollar Buyer Tillman Fertitta showing a strong interest.

So, who is this good for? MGM Resorts. Who is it bad for? Unfortunately, everyone else. Even if you are an MGM player.

This column, breaking down

– Is this going to be a good thing for rated MGM players? Or, maybe not?

– What about the generous drink comps?

– Will Cosmo’s curated food and beverage suffer?

– Will there be employee shake-up, and how will customer service change?
