Iglesias to shake things up at Mirage

Comedian Gabriel Iglesias (he's not fat, he's fluffy) is famous for naming six levels of fatness: Big, Healthy, Husky, Fluffy, DAMN! and OH HELL NO!! So, for his stay in Vegas this week, he has designed hamburgers based on that fluffy joke. The...

Isaak pays tribute to Sun Studio greats

Chris Isaak has too much going for him. He's an acclaimed stage performer, he acts in movies, he's a humble sex symbol. And he fixes his mom's house. Isaak called me the other day, and I asked him what he was up to. "My mom had a leak with her...

Serge Devant performing at Chateau

So you want to make an album. It won't be easy. Look at all the steps Serge Devant took to release his new album "Rewind" on Tuesday, even though he wrapped up production a year ago. 1. Devant (who performs Saturday at Chateau nightclub) recorded "...

Lounge for gamers opening on Strip

Well, it's about time. A hotel is finally installing a video game lounge for those of us who crave to play "Tiger Woods PGA Tour" while we're on the Strip. At 6 p.m. Saturday, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas will open an EA Sports Bar, catering to up...

'Asura's Wrath' more like movie than game

DJ ATB finding inspiration in Vegas

Here's more proof we are living in a golden age of DJ culture in Vegas: ATB -- one of the top DJ-producers in the world -- not only spins regularly at Marquee nightclub, he filmed a music video near my house. The German musician (real name: Andre...

Pauly D leaving Snooki behind

The other day, I asked Pauly D what Snooki should name her pending baby. "Meatball," he joked, because Snooki invented her own slang-uage -- "wah," "rah" and "meem" (which means "I don't feel like talking"). Pauly D and Snooki go together like a...

'Mass Effect 3' stunning in depth

If you want to play "Mass Effect 3," you'd better have two weeks off from work or school, and 14 pizzas. Because this is a long, long game -- as lengthy as several novels. Some characters speak so much dialogue, their stories alone would count as...

Flu fighter Griffin coming to Mirage

Kathy Griffin is recovering from the bird flu. So when she performs stand-up Saturday at The Mirage, she will be "spreading my negativity like a dirty bird virus all up and down the Strip," she says. Because Griffin ridicules the Kardashian family...

'Syndicate' fun ... until baddies vanish

I had high hopes for the futuristic shooting game called "Syndicate." In it, I portray a super soldier in an age of robot Earth soldiers. Sounds cool enough. It starts out, however, with a glossed-over plot that befuddled me: Evil corporations have...
