The Silk Road At Vdara

The Silk Road restaurant at the Vdara, City Center is old Vegas glitz modernized for the 21st century, with an all silver private dining room.

Venom In Vegas

Viva Elvis At Aria Casino

Viva Elvis is due to open at the Aria. They have his gold lame suit on display - Elvis was never this skinny - and all kinds of crapola, I mean, memorabilia. My favorite are the dolls of Elvis & Priscilla's wedding.
