Mariah Carey Is Newest Caesars Palace Headliner
By Robin Leach Pop diva Mariah Carey made it official this morning that she will be the new headline star added to the Colosseum at Caesars Palace lineup filling in during Celine Dion's prolonged and delayed absence.
By Mike Weatherford The supporting evidence says it was probably Nov. 30, 1983. "This was the greatest evening, or one of them, in my life," Bob Anderson says. The singing impressionist was at the top of what was then a still-thriving lounge scene, working a cozy-but-prestigious 60-seat lounge at Steve Wynn's Golden Nugget in Atlantic City. Frank Sinatra was in the main room. Anderson had been put on high alert that "the old man's coming in" after the show. One night passed, then two. No Chairman of the Board.
By Tim Walker An hour before Britney Spears is due onstage, the line outside the Axis Theatre at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino already snakes hundreds of yards back through a brightly-lit shopping mall towards the exit and the Las Vegas Strip beyond. Grown men wear snugly-fitting 'Britney, Bitch' T-shirts. The women reek of warring perfumes û some, surely, Britney's own-brand fragrances: Fantasy by Britney Spears; Curious by Britney Spears; Radiance by Britney Spears.
By Mike Weatherford Elton John tells us he's been writing songs with Bernie Taupin for 48 years. And touring for 46 years. With Davey Johnstone as guitarist for 43 of them. With all this duly noted from the stage of the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, yes, it seems as though this rock royalty has been looking back of late. "The Million Dollar Piano" certainly feels that way.

Las Vegas Dining
by LuckyDucky Did you know Mirage had a tasty (we mean really tasty) Italian restaurant? We had no idea until a recent public relations push for Portofino. After Onda closed, Portofino made its quiet entrance into the Las Vegas dining scene and is now gaining speed along with positive reviews. That $100 lasagna stunt didnÆt hurt, either.

Las Vegas Real Estate
By Anne Kellogg If the walls of 9501 Orient Express could talk, they might repeat the play-by-plays of some intense Saturday afternoon high-stakes, half-court basketball pickup games. Or perhaps those walls would tell the story of endless summer pool parties where guests float along a lazy river that surrounds a pool oasis with waterfall and grotto overlooking a golf course as the breathtaking Strip radiates to the east. Maybe itÆs the highlights from a race-car-themed costume party where all the guests drank red drinks and wore Ferrari-inspired gear to match the Ferrari red kitchen.
