Nothing says “national holiday” like inexpensive tequila.
Cabo Wabo Cantina in Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood Resort will offer half-priced tequila specials and two-for-one margaritas in honor of National Tequila Day. It’s probably a made-up holiday but who cares? The tequila is cheap.
The offer starts Saturday and runs through July 26. For more information, call 702-385-2226 or visit cabowabo.com.
Change is coming to the Shops at Crystals in CityCenter. Through October, four new boutiques will debut and an existing retailer will expand.
Valentino, a 3,000-square-foot boutique, is scheduled to open in August, featuring Valentino’s ready-to-wear line, shoes and handbags. That same month, Richard Mille boutique will open its second shop in the country and its first in Vegas. German luggage-maker Rimowa is also opening. In October, Loro Piana will open its doors. The shop specializes in cashmere, baby cashmere, Vicuna products and luxury goods from Italy. Tourbillon, an existing retailer, is expanding and will finish in October. Construction on The Shops at Crystals is under way.
Jeff Mitchum, famed nature photographer, opened a new fine art gallery at MGM Grand this month.
The new addition is his second gallery in Las Vegas. In 2011, Mitchum opened a gallery in Bellagio after waiting for the opportunity for more than 10 years.
Mitchum’s work is known for its color and composition. Among his most well-known photographs is “Third Day,” a photo of sunlight streaming over the Eastern Sierra, underlined by a band of trees with fall-colored leaves. It took Mitchum 15 years to take the shot that he now calls his “Mona Lisa.” It is priced at $1.7 million. Along with his artwork, the Mitchum gallery at MGM Grand showcases his eco-friendly furniture, too.
