Introducing Gay Nightlife to Las Vegas. Gay nightclub inside of Ballys Casino! LIAISON.

Victor DRAIS  clubs  are famous in Los Angeles and now Las Vegas. Liaison is his first  gay club.

(Drai’s Enterprise is owned and operated by managing partner Victor Drai and Michael Gruber, who is regarded by many as the “father of the Las Vegas after-hours scene.” As creator and founder of Las Vegas mega-clubs Tryst and XS, Drai is the visionary and owner of the legendary Drai’s After Hours club. Drai’s Enterprise also operates the renowned Los Angeles restaurant/club Drai’s, which was established in 1993, and the very popular Drai’s Hollywood, which opened in 2010 as a restaurant, pool and nightclub located on the rooftop of the W Hotel in Hollywood, California. In 2014, Drai Enterprise will introduce a new concept, Drai’s Nightclub Beach Club, at the formerly known Bill’s Gamblin’ Hall & Saloon. The rooftop venue will encompass 65,000 square feet offering panoramic views of the Las Vegas Strip and boast a pool, dayclub/nightclub and concert space. Additionally, After Hours by Drai will re-open, Las Vegas’ most famous after hour’s nightclub, is a lush, exciting place to enjoy the early morning Vegas nightlife. Boasting four various sized rooms with two plush bars and two large dance floors, the sensuous interior offers more than 10,000 square-feet of alluring space. Beautiful artwork is placed throughout the venue creating a unique artistic ambiance.)

 

BUT BACK TO LIAISON….Everything at Liaison will symbolize elegance. From the saturated, sexy dark finishes of gold and black found throughout the club to the opulent design featuring an abundance of mirrors and Venetian-style chandeliers. Liaison will be intimate, yet large enough to provide the social experience that is a signature of Drai’s venues. It will offer two club rooms, two DJ’s, multiple bars, stage and plenty of space for surprise performances. “The importance of having a gay nightclub in a major hotel/casino on the strip is huge,” notes Cordova. “It validates equality and demonstrates just how far we have progressed culturally. This has been the moment that I’ve been working towards for all these years and it’s exciting to see gay nightlife changing in such a big way; these are definitely exciting times in LGBT and Las Vegas history.”

The famous  LADY BUNNY  will be in town July 24  and July 31st, kicking off LIBRARY THURSDAYS with some of the most famous drag entertainment in the world!

Siegfried and Roys Mantecore Dies

Montecore-siegfried-roy-dead-died

The Las Vegas Journal reports

Mantecore, the tiger responsible — but never blamed — for a near-fatal injury to Roy Horn of Siegfried & Roy in 2003, died on March 19.

The white tiger was 17 and died “after a short illness,” according to a press release. Zoologists say 17 is within the lower-end parameter of a normal life expectancy for a tiger.

 

The average lifespan for such a tiger in captivity is 15 to 26 years, according to the San Diego Zoo’s website.

Horn was injured by the 380-pound tiger called Mantecore, whose name is often referred to as Montecore, during a live Siegfried & Roy performance at the Mirage hotel-casino in Las Vegas in 2003.

Horn, 69, and partner Siegfried Fischbacher, 74, have said they believe Mantecore sensed Horn was having a mini-stroke and was dragging him to safety, rather than attacking him. Animal experts have disputed that theory.

After a two-year review, federal investigators never determined what set off the tiger.

“I will forever believe it was his concern for my safety and well-being that caused him to act as he did on that night long ago,” Horn said in a statement. “We spent many hours together and he never failed to bring me great joy and wonderment. It was my great honor to be beside him at the end. He is now playing with his siblings in white tiger heaven.”

 

Roy Horn’s amazing 10-year recovery and his 69th Birthday Party

Millions of Europeans will watch a four-hour TV documentary this
Thursday of Roy Horn’s amazing 10-year recovery  – and in LAS VEGAS, friends will  celebrate his 69th birthday at a black-tie gala at the Mirage. It’s exactly a decade since he cheated death not once but three times, flatlining after his beloved
then-7-year-old tiger Montecore caused him major injuries.

ROBIN LEACH asked Roy how he felt looking back over the 10 years since the
Montecore incident. “First, I feel fabulous. Montecore is my blood brother. We are closer than we have ever been.”Siegfried explained: “The cameras recorded Roy feeding Montecore by hand.
They now have an amazing bond. Look at their faces when Montecore kisses Roy on
the lips, and Roy hugs the tiger. That is real magic. In their faces,
you can see that magic. It gives goose bumps to everybody.”

asked Roy how he felt looking back over the 10 years since the
Montecore incident. “First, I feel fabulous. Montecore is my blood
brother. We are closer than we have ever been.”

The unprecedented European TV broadcast will run from 8 p.m. to midnight
Thursday. “I’d normally be in bed by 10 p.m.,” Siegfried said, laughing. “I can’t imagine anybody watching me for four hours, but the way they filmed it is remarkable.

“The camera crews moved in for seven straight days of filming. Roy will be seen swimming in the pool for his strengthening workouts and riding his horses. It’s a beautiful documentary. It starts the night of the last performance at the Mirage. Then it goes into our history and Las
Vegas stage careers leading up to the 13-year run of 5,000 shows at the
Mirage that ended so suddenly.”THERE IS  A GREAT  INTERVIEW WITH THE DUO
THIS WEEK  IN  LAS VEGAS WEEKLY.

High Roller – Largest Ferris Wheel in World

The outer shell of what will be the world’s largest Ferris wheel was
erected Monday on the Las Vegas Strip, a locale already notorious for inducing sensory overload.

The top of the High Roller ride, placed across the street from Caesar’s Palace, will soar 55 stories over Sin City. When the new landmark is completed early next year, it will
be adorned with 1,500 LED lights.

“It’s going to be an icon,” Project Director David Codiga told The Associated Press. “It’s going to
be a part of your visit to Las Vegas if you ride it or not. It’s more or
less impossible not to see it if you come here.”  READ  MORE

Why Online Gambling and Excessive Alcohol should never be mixed

If you have ever been to a real world casino, then you will have noticed how much free drinks play a part in keeping players at the tables and slot machines happy.

The fact you can sit down at a casino in Las Vegas, start playing and then have a pleasant member of staff provide you with free drinks certainly helps persuade you to spend the money you’d have otherwise spent on refreshments, going onto your game or slot of choice.

It is fair to say that there is a long-established link between casino gaming in the real world and alcohol, yet there are strict guidelines in place in these establishments that state that under no circumstances should players who are excessively under the influence of alcohol be allowed to gamble.

 

Yet in terms of online casinos and mobile casinos as found on mobilecasino.com.au, there can be no such mandate. When you are playing at home, perhaps after a night out with friends, there is no bartender there to make the judgement as to whether you are too inebriated to play. You are reliant on your own judgement and if you have had a few too many beers or shorts, then that judgement is likely to be flawed.

 

While enjoying an evening playing online casino games and enjoying a beer or two is not going to impair your judgement, there is a tipping point for most people when the negative effects of alcohol can wreak havoc with their gaming and as such, it is wise to use alcohol when playing online games, with a degree of caution.

 

The reasons for this are well documented. Research has found that gamblers who are exposed to even just a moderate amount of alcohol are likely to play for longer and wager more than those who only drink non-alcoholic drinks.  Furthermore, it has already been proven that alcohol impairs your thinking and judgement, meaning that if you play while drunk, you are going to play for longer, spend more, but be in no fit state to play properly, or perhaps more worryingly, judge when to stop.

 

For clear examples of this, you only need to look at the stories of two famous high rollers for whom alcohol and gambling proved a somewhat calamitous combination; former NBA Star Allan Iversen and wealthy Nebraskan philanthropist, Terrance Watanabe.

 

At the height of his fame Allan Iversen was one of the NBA’s biggest stars, earning over tens of millions in salary alone, plus much more in endorsements and sponsorship deals. Yet, he was also a person who loved to gamble and in particular, loved to gamble and drink.

 

Over the years, Iversen squandered his fortune at the casino playing games such as Three Card Poker, he would quickly get very drunk while playing, making increasingly higher bets and growing increasingly offensive and angry whilst playing (and losing).

 

Iversen’s addiction to gambling and drink has cost him his entire fortune and left the player penniless when he and his family should have been set up for life.

 

Terrance Watanabe’s story is eerily similar, having sold his father’s toy import business for hundreds of millions of dollars, Watanabe began playing at Caesars and the Rio casinos in Vegas, however he alleges that the casinos plied him with drink to the state where he was continually drunk.

 

Over a sustained two-year period, Watanabe bet over $500 million at the casinos, losing almost all his vast personal fortune and running up a debt of over $77 million at the casinos. In one drunken 24-hour spell in 2007, he lost $5 million!

 

Of course, the shrewd amongst you will have noticed that in both cases, these high rollers broke casino rules about playing while drunk. However, when you are a whale, many of the casinos rules seem not to apply to you, provided you can pay your bills – a fact that Mr Watanabe blames as being a crucial factor in his losses.

 

So if you are settling down for an evening playing on your laptop, tablet or smartphone at an online casino and have a case of beers in the fridge, then remember these stories and just enjoy the one or two while you play.

 

Not only will you be in full control of all your faculties, you will find that you are far less likely to have a physical and financial headache the following morning if you do.

The Cosmopolitan has now been added to the list of Las Vegas casino resorts with an active labor dispute

There is an escalating labor dispute at the
Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.  Picket lines and demonstrations by union
workers and community supporters at the Cosmopolitan could negatively
impact the customer experience at this high-end Strip resort.

The Cosmopolitan has now been added to the list of Las Vegas casino resorts with an active labor dispute. (See the www.VegasTravelAlert.org website). 

Since
January, the Cosmopolitan has been the site of picket lines and
demonstrations attended by thousands of people. We have also commenced
regular picket lines on the sidewalks of the Cosmopolitan, starting this
past weekend. (See
this news story.)

Workers
at the Cosmopolitan have been seeking a first contract since September,
2011.  They want the same opportunity to provide for themselves and
their families that other union workers enjoy on the Las Vegas Strip.
Our union has proposed contract language on job security and workload
based on the Union Standard on the Strip. We have not been able to reach
a settlement after nearly two years of talks.
