The WNBA’s Las Vegas Aces today announced the team has signed free agent center Lady Liberty to an honorary contract for its inaugural season. Aces Head Coach and General Manager Bill Laimbeer recently presented Liberty with her official 75.5-foot tall jersey for all to see (and take selfies with) at New York-New York Hotel & Casino on the corner of Las Vegas Blvd. and Tropicana Ave.

Liberty, 18, is certainly a wild card on the hardwood, as scouts have noted her statuesque presence and determined athleticism. As the tallest player in the WNBA at 150 feet, Liberty’s immense wing span presents a major opportunity for the Aces to be a formidable force for decades to come.

Even as a free agent, there’s no doubting Liberty’s loyalty to Las Vegas. She is a staple on the Las Vegas Strip, beloved by visitors from around the world at her home in front of New York-New York and remains one of the city’s most iconic figures.

The Aces tipped off its first season of WNBA competition at Mandalay Bay Events Center this past May becoming the second major professional sports team in Las Vegas.

HISTORY®, Nitro Circus and Caesars Palace have partnered for, “Evel Live,” an unprecedented three hour live event airing on Sunday, July 8 at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT on HISTORY®. “Evel Live” will see motorsports superstar Travis Pastrana pay tribute to Evel Knievel, the founding father of motorcycle stunts, and aim to the push the limits even farther than the American icon. Caesars Palace, world-famous home of memorable moments in both sport and entertainment and the site of Evel Knievel’s legendary fountain jump 50 years ago, will host the grand finale jump, both for a national TV audience and a packed Las Vegas crowd.

“Ever since I can remember Evel Knievel has been a hero to me and his influence still lives on to this day,” said Travis Pastrana. “Having the opportunity to pay tribute to him at Caesars Palace, where Evel became a household name, is a huge honor. At Nitro Circus we have pulled off some huge stunts, but this has to be the most iconic one yet.”

“For more than 50 years, Caesars Palace has been a trailblazer in entertainment, hosting over-the-top sporting events in the center of the Las Vegas Strip. ‘Evel Live’ is a testament to that rich legacy and to the evolution of extreme sports,” says Gary Selesner, regional president of Caesars Palace.

During “Evel Live,” Pastrana will aim to surpass three of Knievel’s most infamous jumps over the course of three hours in one action-packed night, including jumping the length of 52+ crushed cars and 16 Greyhound buses directly behind Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, Paris Las Vegas and Bally’s Las Vegas. The finale will occur over the iconic fountains of Caesars Palace. If successful, Pastrana will break Knievel’s records and will be the first person to complete three of Knievel’s greatest jumps consecutively.

Travis Pastrana is an 11-time X Games gold medalist, the world’s first rider to land a double backflip on a motorcycle and America’s modern-day daredevil. Pastrana has won multiple championships in motocross and rally car racing, as well as competed in NASCAR and Race Of Champions, which brings together the world’s finest drivers from all disciplines of motorsports competition.

Knievel suffered fractures and a severe concussion when he attempted to jump the fountains in 1967, while Gary Wells sustained multiple injuries to his body during his unsuccessful attempt in 1980. Raising the stakes even higher, Pastrana will use a V-twin flat track motorcycle – an Indian Scout FTR750 – similar to the bikes that Knievel used in his day. Far from the light dirt bikes that Pastrana is used to riding, the FTR750 is designed for speed and control with both wheels on the ground.

Caesars Palace is allowing guests to make their own history with special pricing on their next Las Vegas getaway. In honor of “Evel Live,” guests can enjoy up to 30 percent off stays at Caesars Entertainment Las Vegas Resorts through Dec. 28, 2018. Stays must be booked by July 31, 2018 using the code “JUMP” at Caesars.com. Blackout dates apply.

The events are free and open to the public, and tickets are not required. The public can access the jumps in the lot behind Bally’s Las Vegas, Paris Las Vegas and Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino beginning at 3:30 p.m. The public can access the jump at Caesars Palace beginning at 6 p.m.

Nitro Circus, producer of jaw-dropping world firsts such as Pastrana’s 2017 barge-to-barge backflip on London’s River Thames and Josh Sheehan’s massive triple backflip on a motorcycle in 2015, will create another milestone moment with “Evel Live.” Caesars Palace is the perfect setting, given Knievel’s celebrated jump that changed history a half century ago. On Dec. 31, 1967 Knievel, just beginning to gain national notoriety, throttled up his iconic red, white and blue motorcycle and flew over the photogenic fountains – an image quickly embedded in pop culture. In the decades since, Caesars Palace has been recognized as a destination for spectacular live events. The fountains have remained a tempting challenge for riders eager to follow in Knievel’s footsteps and some, such as Evel’s son Robbie Knievel and Mike Metzger, have even successfully completed the jump on much lighter motocross bikes. But none have attempted to do so riding a motorcycle like one that Knievel used – until now.

“Evel Live” is produced by Nitro Circus Media Productions in partnership with HISTORY®. Trip Taylor and Dave Mateus are executive producers for Nitro Circus Media Productions. Zachary Behr, Sean Boyle and Mary E. Donahue are executive producers for HISTORY®.

One of the hottest (literally) venues in town for concerts, sports watch parties and music festivals, is the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center (DLVEC). Located in at the corner of 3rd Street and Carson in downtown Las Vegas, the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center has been expanding its events schedule and is quickly becoming a premier outdoor concert venue.

The Downtown Las Vegas Events Center hosts numerous concerts throughout the year and while it is an outdoor venue, a special tent is used during the cooler months to provide an indoor space to keep the party hot!

In 2017, DLVEC began hosting the Downtown Watch Zone during football season. The venue was outfitted like a football field with stadium style seating, reserved tables on the field and a 72-foot HD LED main screen and additional 22-foot HD LED screens to watch all the weekly football games. This was a great place to see the games for free and enjoy them with other football fans. Reservations are even offered for the “Man Caves” if you’d like a private viewing area.

The Downtown Las Vegas Events Center was also a hot spot for Vegas Golden Knights viewing parties during the hockey playoff season and hosts NFR viewing parties while NFR is in town. Several music festivals are held at the venue throughout the year, including Las Rageous and Punk Rock Bowling and the DLVEC has even hosted boxing matches.

So if you’re in Las Vegas and looking for a new experience in our fair city, and one you definitely won’t find in your hometown, grab some tickets to a concert at the Downtown Las Vegas Event Center.

When Wolfgang Puck’s legendary Spago opened 25 years ago in Las Vegas, the level of influence he and the restaurant would have on the city was unimaginable. The revolutionary restaurant is recognized for igniting Las Vegas’s dining scene into a culinary epicenter. Wolfgang’s relentless drive to transform continues today as the chef debuts the new Spago Las Vegas at Bellagio Resort & Casino, bringing two internationally renowned brands together.

“For us, it’s the perfect synergy between Spago and Bellagio,” said Wolfgang Puck. “The resort’s clientele and my longtime guests align perfectly with Spago’s exceptional offerings and elegant atmosphere. It is truly a match made in heaven.”

Bellagio President & COO Randy Morton said, “Wolfgang holds himself and his team to unrivaled high standards in order to create extraordinary culinary experiences around the world. We are thrilled to welcome Spago to Bellagio at its new home within our award-winning culinary portfolio.”

New California Cuisine

Spago is inspired by California living with its casual elegance and farm-to-table ethos. Wolfgang hand selects seasonal ingredients to create the restaurant’s market-driven menu, featuring the chef’s signature fare paired with modern technique and creative elements. From popular Spago dishes to new dishes offered only at Bellagio, guests have a wealth of options to choose from for lunch or dinner.

• Bellagio Exclusives – In addition to signature Spago dishes, Wolfgang has created specific dishes just for this new destination. The Baja Kanpachi Crudo brings a burst of acidity with pickled radish, yuzu gel and hibiscus ponzu, rounded out with creamy avocado and crunchy tapioca crisps. A Saffron Risotto features Santa Barbara Spot Prawns, housed in a special tank within the resort.

• Lunch on the Lake – Spago’s lavish lakeside lunch options include a selection of Puck’s signature wood-fired pizzas, handmade pastas, salads and sandwiches as well as Wolfgang’s Famous Veal “Wiener Schnitzel,” served with marinated cucumbers, fingerling potato salad and m?che salad.

• From the Grill – Wolfgang brings his own signature to the Las Vegas steak dinner, allowing guests to indulge in prime meats, such as Wagyu and Japanese Ribeye carved tableside, and grilled fish such as the Turbot with charred baby leeks with gremolata.

• Delightful Desserts – Spectacular seasonal desserts serve as a grand finale including the Tart Mascarpone Cheesecake and the soon-to-be-Spago-signature, The Strawberry, featuring almond-salted streusel, strawberry confit and micro basil plated with an artful and whimsical presentation.

• Bar Bites – In addition to the full menu, Spago’s bar serves an exclusive selection of snacks such as Lemon-Herb Blinis with Caviar and Crème Fraiche and Spicy Tuna Tartare in Sesame-Miso Cones.

Sensational Sips

Innovation and familiarity may seem like contradictory notions, but that juxtaposition is what defines Spago’s cocktail menu. Crafted with house-made infusions, artisanal spirits and fresh herbs, these libations are inspired by Wolfgang’s culinary philosophy of embracing creativity using the world’s finest ingredients.

• Creative Cocktails – Spago offers modern takes on favorites such as its version of the tiki cocktail called “Trouble in Mind” using Bourbon instead of Rum, complemented by Montenegro Amaro and Allspice Dram. The “Rogue Sour,” Spago’s version of the whiskey sour, adds depth of flavor with house-made cinnamon buckwheat honey and Amaro.

• Worldly Wine – The globally inspired collection spans many regions of the world, highlighting an impressive number of vintages from the United States and Italy. Similar to the menu, the wine list will be seasonally inspired, starting the summer months with a strong selection of Rosé wines. In addition, the list features nearly one dozen wines from Wolfgang Puck’s private label, a collection of food-friendly wines that celebrate the spirit of food and life for which the chef is known.

Lake-Inspired Designed

The integrity of delivering a memorable experience is as rooted in the architectural design as much as the menu and service. Designer Gelila Puck collaborated with architects Massimiliano Locatelli and Annamaria Scevola of CLS Architetti to create a space that allows every seat in the house to capture its own unique perspective of the restaurant’s remarkable location.

Gelila Puck said, “The fountains were everything for us. We used the water as a key element in the design of the restaurant, bringing the beautiful feature to the forefront of the dining experience from the moment our guests enter the restaurant. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows highlight the grandeur of the space while distinct dining spaces meld classic architecture with modern art, all creating an atmosphere as memorable as the food.”

Highlights of the exquisitely designed restaurant include:

• Local Artistry – Spago commissioned Las Vegas artist Katie Lewis to create a series of 20 topographical map images inspired by the Nevada desert landscape. One wall of the restaurant is dedicated to “Hugging a Black Hole, Hoping One Day to Forget,” a piece crafted by Jacob Hashimoto, known for his three-dimensional wall hangings inspired by his Japanese heritage.

• Al Fresco Patio – The most coveted seats are positioned on the completely remodeled circular and covered outdoor patio giving guests unobstructed front-row views of the magnificent Fountains of Bellagio while enjoying Spago’s celebrated cuisine seated under the sun or stars.

• Main Dining Room – This space boasts beautiful floor-to-ceiling windows imparting picturesque views of Bellagio’s famed lake from any seat in the house. Two exquisite chandeliers accent the room’s modern art pieces, while rich hues of black iron, velvet walnut and polished grey accents express a contemporary aesthetic.

• Bar and Lounge – Adorned brass fixtures, rich smoked-oak wood floors, leather chairs and couches serve as the focal point of the classic bar and wine cellar. The velvet-accented bar features a modern and sleek bench designed to reflect the communal and social atmosphere.

• Private Dining Rooms – Spago offers two private fountain-view dining rooms, each seating up to 20 guests. The private rooms feature translucent glass panels with elegant white sheers that act as filters, allowing guests to enjoy their privacy while being able to fully take in their surroundings.

Spago is located in Via Bellagio and is open for lunch daily from 11:30 a.m. – 2:45 p.m. Dinner is from 5 p.m. – 10:30 p.m., Sunday – Thursday and 5 p.m. – 11 p.m. Friday & Saturday. The bar menu is available from 2:45 p.m. until close.

Blink-182, a band that’s always seamlessly blurred the line between rock, punk and pop, kicked off their Kings of the Weekend residency at the newly renovated Pearl Concert Theater at Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.

The band put the new multi-million dollar sound system to the test, performing hit songs from their nearly 25-year history including “What’s My Age Again,” “First Date,” and “Dammit,” as well as songs from the band’s seventh studio album California, where the track “Kings of the Weekend” also serves as the name of the residency.

The band, with Mark Hoppus (vocals/bass), Travis Barker (drums), and Matt Skiba (guitar), seemed to have a lot of fun interacting with the audience and at one time even mentioning the Stanley Cup-bound Vegas Golden Knights.

The band surely struck the right chord, bringing the sold-out and diverse crowd to their feet, singing along to every song.

Blink-182 will return to Las Vegas for more dates in June, October and November of 2018.
