August was a tough month for Las Vegas…we lost people that meant a lot to us. We saw the closing of a property and several productions. It is nice to have this past month behind us. September marks the transition into our next season…the start of school, the return to business, the end of summer and pool parties, and the promise of cooler days that will allow us to do more outside. It’s also time to change the watering schedule for the yard.
During the entire month of August, Dallas was consistently hotter than Las Vegas. The parade here is moving forward, and I’m now ready for Christmas. I only got back to Vegas once during August, and that was to send my daughter off to college and miss her already. The kids of Clark County have already gone back to school, and with that of course, motorists need to be very aware of the school zones. The police are going to be out in force around schools.
Football season is here---which means that sports books across the city will be busy and happy, and thousands of football wives will be seeing shows, as thousands of football husbands are watching and betting on games. (Go Ducks!)
Robin Williams passed away this past month. He died on the morning of August 11, 2014, at his home in Paradise Cay, California. In the initial report released on August 12, the Marin County Sheriff's Office deputy coroner stated Williams had hanged himself with a belt and died from asphyxiation. His body was cremated and his ashes scattered in San Francisco Bay on August 12. News of Williams' death spread quickly worldwide. The entertainment world, friends, and fans responded to his sudden death through social media and other media outlets. His wife, Susan Schneider, said: "I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings. I am utterly heartbroken." Williams' daughter Zelda responded to her father's death by stating that the "world is forever a little darker, less colorful and less full of laughter in his absence".
Lauren Bacall, another legend, died on August 12, 2014, at her longtime home in The Dakota, the Upper West Side apartment building overlooking Central Park in Manhattan. According to her grandson Jamie Bogart, the actress died after suffering a massive stroke. She was confirmed dead at New York–Presbyterian Hospital. Bacall was 89. Lauren Bacall born Betty Joan Perske; September 16, 1924. She was best known for her distinctive husky voice and sultry looks. She began her career as a model. She first appeared as a leading lady in the Humphrey Bogart film To Have and Have Not (1944) and continued on in the film noir genre, with appearances in Bogart movies. Her performance in the movie The Mirror Has Two Faces (1996) earned her a Golden Globe Award and an Academy Award nomination.
Here at home, we were all saddened by the passing of longtime friend and Las Vegan, Joanie Spina. Joanie died Sunday, August 17th, at a Houston hospital while awaiting lung and liver transplants. She had just turned 61. Joanie suffered from pulmonary fibrosis. Earlier this year, she moved to Houston for the hoped for replacement surgeries. She was a longtime assistant to magician David Copperfield, who for the last three years, provided spiritual and medical support for Joanie, who had been on 24-hour oxygen therapy because of her illness. She was an animal rights activist whose documentary, Born to Die, about the overpopulation of discarded pets in Las Vegas, debuted at the 2004 New York International Independent Film and Video Festival. Her other documentary about pets was Doctor Death. She will be tremendously missed by all of the people and animals she touched.
The Clarion Hotel Casino has closed. The hotel will be eventually torn down or imploded. The Clarion opened as the Royal Inn in 1970, in 1980, the hotel-casino’s name was changed to Royal Americana but was closed by 1982. Under new ownership, the hotel was reopened as the Paddlewheel, which catered to families who were looking for an option other than Circus Circus. The hotel was purchased by Debbie Reynolds in 1992. Under her direction, the Debbie Reynolds Hollywood Hotel served as an ode to great films and movie legends featuring much of her extensive memorabilia collection. But Reynolds struggled to fund the project, which led to state gaming regulators to refuse to grant her a gaming license at the hotel. Reynolds wound up filing for bankruptcy in 1997 and selling the property at auction a year later to the World Wrestling Federation. That organization held ownership for a year, but plans for a full-scale wrestling venue were scuttled because the building was deemed too small. The WWF then sold to a group that renamed the hotel the Greek Isles. The hotel fell into foreclosure in 2009 and then fell into the hands of the resort’s creditors in a partnership with the Clarion hotel chain. The company’s Las Vegas outpost has since been doing business as the only Clarion in the country to offer gaming. The Clarion has 200 guest rooms on a 6-acre parcel. Its showroom, Wolf Theater, is known by entertainers in Las Vegas as one of the underrated venues in the city. The problem was not with the room or quality of performances but the absence of customers.
Sydney After Dark, the sensual female revue from down under, closed August 17 at the PH Showroom at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. “As they say – bigger isn’t always better, and we learned during our previews that the beautiful large room Sydney After Dark debuted in recently didn’t have the intimate feeling the show needs to resonate with the audience in its truest sense,” said Laura Herlovich, publicist for the show. “We will be announcing our new home soon.” Sydney After Dark continues to look for a room that is a right fit for this show and an announcement is imminent.
PAWN SHOP LIVE! – closed on Thursday, August 21 at the Starlite Theatre inside the Riviera Hotel & Casino. This was the second time the show quickly failed…first at the Golden Nugget, and now at the Riviera.
VIVA VERACRUZ! THE SHOW will not be opening at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino as originally scheduled. Producers for the show will be continuing to work on it and will be making decisions regarding its future in the next few days. The story is of a traveler’s walk through the legends and colorful history of Veracruz, Mexico. Divided into 12 choreographed dance numbers, the show is composed of a series of vignettes, delicately interlaced in a rich, dynamic and eclectic program. The music is a combination of original compositions and traditional songs such as the world-famous “La Bamba.” Salsa, Danzon, contemporary dance and, of course, Jarocho, the original Veracruz dance, confront each other, resulting in a beautiful combination of cultures and traditions.
Celine Dion has canceled all scheduled performances, including those at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Affected performances include all announced shows scheduled through March 22, 2015. Celine Dion has decided to postpone all of her show business activities indefinitely, in order to focus 100% of her attention on her husband Rene, their family, and recent health issues. Since Rene's surgery last December to remove a cancerous tumor, it's been a very difficult and stressful time for the couple as they deal with the day-to-day challenges of fighting this disease while trying to juggle a very active show business schedule, and raise their three young children. Besides canceling her shows at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace until further notice, Celine will also cancel her tour of Asia, previously scheduled for the fall of this year.

The Orleans Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV is proud to welcome comedian Paula Poundstone September 26th and 27th. 25 years ago Paula Poundstone climbed on a Greyhound bus and traveled across the country -- stopping in at open mic nights at comedy clubs as she went. A high school drop-out, she went on to become one of the great humorists of our time. You can hear her through your laughter as a regular panelist on NPR’s popular rascal of a weekly news quiz show, Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me. She tours regularly, performing standup comedy across the country, causing Bob Zany with the Boston Globe to write: “Poundstone can regale an audience for several hours with her distinctive brand of wry, intelligent and witty comedy.” Audience members may put it a little less elegantly: “I peed my pants.”
