First up in Vegas news, there’s a new spot to watch the desert’s favorite sport—ice hockey, obviously. According to Eater, the Golden Knights have partnered with Red Rock Resort on Crimson at Knight, a pop-up that’s part party, Golden Knight’s viewing extravaganza, and bar food spectacular.
Expect beers available by the tub of 24, burnt-end burritos, and twice than life-size photos of Marc-Andre Fleury guarding the goal. Oh yeah, and TV’s. Lots of those, too.
Station Casinos has flipped the Palms, their massive resort and casino that’s just off the strip to the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians for just some pocket change…or about $650 million, according to an announcement this week.
The deal, despite the massive figure, does show the devastating impact of Covid on the Las Vegas economy. Just a few months before the virus hit, a renovation valued at $690 million was completed at the Palms. It’s still unclear what the deal will mean for the fate of restaurants at the resort owned by superstar chefs like Bobby Flay, Michael Simon, and Marc Vetri, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated.
Finally, in a rather unexpected mashup, a Canadian restaurant specializing in German street food, Wolf Down, will be opening this month in Chinatown. Wolf Down specializes in Berlin style Doner, the German permutation of Turkish Doner Kebab. Based on their Instagram, they seem like the perfect thing to wolf down after a late night out.
