Tidbits and Teasers: Rosanne Barr Residency, Bill's Gambling Closure, Fremont Country Club DTVL


Rosanne Barr Now at Tropicana
Rosanne Barr comes to the Laugh Factory at Tropicana creating a new schedule for Celebrity Magician Murray who'll be moved to the 5pm slot check murraysawchuck.com for his new schedule. Barr is famous for her TV shows, and will now be holding the dinner slot at the newly renovated Hotel's comedy club. Visiting headliner shows will remain at 8 and 10pm at Vegas Laugh Factory. It is indeed getting busier for the club since its 2012 open.

Bill's Gambling Hall Closes for Improvement
Bill's Gambling Hall has been closed for renovation to be reopened in 2014 (Bill's is across from Bally's, Bellagio, and Ceaser's at Flamingo). It is slated to be a 'lifestyle boutique' hotel with a 65,000 foot rooftop pool being installed and Drai Management overseeing the new day and night clubs. As a Ceaser's property, patrons are being referred to cross the street for their entertainment and hotel stay needs in Vegas. Good Luck Bill's.

Fremont Country Club Softly Opens
The FCC is set to open in March 2013, and press were invited to view the soft open a couple days ago. Louis Prima Jr. played a set, and is said to be a possible mainstay act. The large space is only one of many new venues being renovated and opened downtown, and I would recommend this website to stay abreast on the changes on the original Vegas at dtlv.com. Warning: keeping up with downtown could be a full-time job.
