M Resort, opening March, will cater mostly to locals

The new M Resort is a 700 million dollar project at the far south of Las Vegas Boulevard - some ten miles south of Mandalay Bay.

Unlike other resorts on the strip, the M will cater to locals and expects 80 percent of its business to be from local visits.

M Resort will feature an outdoor amphitheater, buffets, and high quality service. It appears the goal is not so much to out wow the competition, rather to offer locals a comfortable resort environment they can call their home away from home.

Chris Angel / Cirque Show Pushed back to September 12th

Chris Angel of Mindfreak fame is opening a special show with Cirque du Soleil called "Believe". Originally scheduled for Sept 1 the show has had technical problems and will begin September 12th with the big gala grand opening later in October.

The Luxor 100 million dollar venue promises one of the most spectacular Las Vegas shows of all time, but we'll all have to wait a big longer to see how great this show will be.
