Former Super Bowl Champion Makes a Deep Run in the World Series of Poker

seymour.jpg

Known for his aggressive play on the field, former 3x Super Bowl Champion, Richard Seymour, proved those skills prove to be valuable in poker as well. Participating in the 2019 World Series of Pokers’ main event, Seymour came in 131st out of 8,569 players. This netted him $59,295, not bad for a weeks worth of work. His ultimate goal was to come in first place, which would have netted him $10 million dollars.


This finish was the highest out of any professional athlete in the events’ history. Since retiring in 2012, has netted more than $630,000 playing poker. Even though that sounds good, it’s nowhere near as impressive as his nearly $90 million in earnings while playing in the NFL.


Seymour had built his chip stack up to over $3.6 during the event but he was forced to fold a few hands that cost him a majority of his chips. Feeling as if he needed to make a move, he went all-in with a weak hand of king of hearts & 4 of diamonds. He ultimately lost to a 3-of-a-kind.

Hard Rock Hotel to Close: An End of an Era

virgin-hotel-las-vegas.jpg

A staple in Las Vegas since 1995, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino is set to close. Virgin Hotels bought the property and plans to close it in February of 2020 to revamp it. The Virgin Hotels brand will close the doors for about 9 months as it plans to spend in excess of $200 million upgrading and expanding the 5 acre pool and every room on the property.


Hard Rock Hotel was one of the busiest properties when it was in its’ prime. Primarily appealing to the younger demographic, it was a pioneer in the nightlife and daylife scene. One of the first nightclubs that was inside of a casino was Baby’s. Prior to that, nightclubs were in stand alone buildings on and around the Las Vegas strip. Baby’s gave way to Body English around the time the nightlife scene in Las Vegas exploded. Body English was known for having the first mainstream resident dj, DJ AM. Current resident DJ’s like Tiesto at Hakkasan Nightclub, The Chainsmakers at XS Nightclub, and Calvin Harris at Omnia Nightclub all owe their huge contracts to the pioneers at Body English Nightclub.


Additionally, Hard Rock Hotel was the very first hotel to host a pool party 4 days a week; know as Rehab. The popularity of these daytime pool parties hit its peak when TruTV hosted its reality TV show called Rehab:Party at the Hard Rock Hotel there in 2010. The success of this pool party allowed others like Wet Republic at MGM, KAOS Dayclub at Palms hotel, and Drais Beach at The Comwell Hotel, to follow suit. Partying during the day was a new concept in Las Vegas and it proved to be a huge money maker.


It seems like the Cosmopolitan Hotel has poached the younger crowd from the off-strip hotels, Hard Rock Hotel and the Palms over the past years. Cosmopolitan Hotel has lured this demographic away by offering top name DJ’s at their nightclub and dayblub venue- Marquee. It also helped being the only hotel on the strip that has balconies. Oh yeah, it is also in the heart of Las Vegas BLVD.


We will be sad to see an icon close its’ doors. The Hard Rock Hotel had a great run, and offered us 24 great years of ground breaking innovation. However, Las Vegas is an ever evolving enigma. It takes a lot to get to the top, and even more to stay there. We are excited to see what Virgin Hotels has in store with the property. The vision of its owner, Richard Branson, is sure to be unprecedented. Bringing the Virgin Hotel brand to cities such as Las Vegas, New York, and Nashville seems to be the beginning of an era.

Living Up to the Hype: KAOS is the Future of Las Vegas

Opening weekend of KAOS Day Club and Nightclub came and went, but many party-goers are still buzzing after the historical headliners and beautiful venue. Cardi B. Travis Scott, Marshmello and The Zac Brown Band all performed the much anticipated opening of Las Vegas’ newest mega club since Omnia Nightclub opened over 4 years ago. What KAOS was going to look like on the inside was a mystery to everyone but industry insiders so the level of anticipation was extremely high.

kaos-las-vegas-opening-weekend.jpg

KAOS delivered on so many aspects. The venue is absolutely stunning. It is also functional, which may be its’ greatest asset. With a space that covers over 100,00 square feet it may have been a harder task than you may expect. The headliners, delivered impactful performances and connected with the audience in what felt like a very intimate venue despite its’ massive size. Finally, customer service from the minute you entered KAOS was second to none. The staff was obviously well trained. Many of the KAOS staff were hand-picked from other Las Vegas venues such as TAO Beach, Drais Nightclub and Hakkasan Nightclub. Enough can’t be said about how attentive and polite they all were.

KAOS also failed on a few aspects. We commended the staff on how we were treated once we were inside the venue. However, the process of getting in was not as impressive. There were people waiting to get in that purchased Cabanas and Daybeds with a minimum spend of over $10,000 waiting in a line that moved slower than general admission. General admission was also something left to be desired with a line as far as the eye can see snaking through the Palms Casino.

All in all, KAOS Day Club and Nightclub will be a force in the Las Vegas nightlife industry for years to come. Its impressive line up of A list performers and exquisite venue will allow it to dominate. Palms Hotel has rebounded from a second thought Hotel & Casino to a destination that will rival any of its’ Las Vegas Blvd competitors with additions such as KAOS, APEX and Shark, Bobby Flay’s newest restaurant.

Are you ready for KAOS?

The much anticipated opening of KAOS nightclub and KAOS dayclub is finally upon us. Rolling out the red carpet to a who’s who of musical acts to kick off the opening weekend. Located in the Palms Hotel & Casino, KAOS has renovated the area which was formerly known as Rain Nightclub, a staple in Las Vegas for over a decade.

Marshmello will kick off his 2-year residency as he performs live on Thursday, the opening date of the brand new nightclub. On a night where the line to get in will probably wrap around the building, bottle service is probably the best way to go to enjoy what will be an epic night.

Alicia Keys will be in concert at the Pearl Concert Theater to get the festivities started. Travis Scott and Skrillex will follow with the first ever concert inside of the 29,000 square foot KAOS nightclub. Can you imagine how insane it will be to witness that?

Saturday night will be just as impressive as Grammy Award Winner, Cardi B kicks off her residency at KAOS nightclub. G-Easy and J Balvin will also have electrifying performances. Bottle service will be at a premium this weekend and it is speculated that premium table can go for as high as $50,000 opening weekend.

The brand new 73,000 square foot Dayclub, known as KAOS Dayclub, will kick off with Kaskade and Vice spinning at what will be the pool party to be at this Summer. This weekends line-up seems insane but, KAOS executives hint at the fact that this will be a regular occurrence at Las Vegas’ newest nightclub and dayclub. If they can pull off anything even remotely close to this, we are in for a wild ride!
