BOOZY SKUNKTON ON THE HUNT FOR
LAS VEGAS BARTENDERS WITH UNUSUAL SKILLS

 

When Boozy Skunkton takes over the Kraken Music Hall at Grand Canal Shoppes in September for Spiegelworld’s upcoming ATOMIC SALOON SHOW, she is going to need a team of incredible bartenders to match the spectacle onstage.

 

“The Kraken Music Hall has got bars and booze all over the damn joint, and what’s a smaknificent saloon show without a posse of kraknificent bartenders?” exclaimed Madam Skunkton today. “My last bar manager died mixing a Moscow Mule while riding on the back of an actual mule, so I’ve got to find me a whole new team to open up this here distablishment.”

 

With an international cast of comic actors, variety acts, and acrobats, ATOMIC SALOON SHOW will take audiences to the Wild West as it never was. Ensuring she can oversee the day-to-day wrangling of her band of misfits, Boozy Skunkton has enlisted the assistance of Spiegelworld and Britain’s leading comedy director Cal McCrystal to create the new show that’s envisioned as  “Blazing Saddles” meets “The Greatest Showman” meets “A Night at the Roxbury.”

 

“I’m on the hunt for any bartender in Las Vegas who has a jaw-dropping skill,” said Boozy today. “Maybe you can juggle whiskey bottles, maybe you can do a handstand on the bar, maybe you can light a flaming Sambuca by breathing fire out your nostrils. Take a video, post it on Instagram and use the hashtag #AtomicSaloonShow and I’ll be keeping my eye on who’s out there in Vegas.”

Animazing Gallery At Grand Canal Shoppes At The Venetian And The Palazzo Las Vegas Continues To Connect The Las Vegas Downtown Arts District To The Strip

 

ANIMAZING GALLERY AT GRAND CANAL SHOPPES AT THE VENETIAN AND THE PALAZZO LAS VEGAS CONTINUES TO CONNECT THE LAS VEGAS DOWNTOWN ARTS DISTRICT TO THE STRIP

 

WHAT:
Animazing Gallery at Grand Canal Shoppes inside The Venetian® and The Palazzo® Las Vegas
is proud to continue their collaboration with the Downtown Arts District by helping to support and bring awareness to the Las Vegas art community. The third in a quarterly series of events called Art Connect showcases one local downtown artist each quarter.

The much-anticipated event will feature artist Alex P. Huerta of Peacenart Studio. To commemorate the evening, Huerta will have exclusive artwork available at Animazing Gallery during the event.

WHO:
Alexander P. Huerta is passionate about art and artistic expression. He was an employee for Harrah’s Las Vegas Hotel & Casino for 13 years. After experiencing the ups and downs of life and some difficulties with his health, he one day walked into a gallery and came face to face with one of Pablo Picasso’s paintings titled “Le Rêve.” Huerta often speaks of this moment as the “marker moment” of his life, the day “when God got his attention about Art.” With no formal art education or even the desire to be an artist, gazing at that vibrant color palette and that beautifully imperfect painting he realized that moment would forever change the course of his life, and so it did.

“I consider my art to be a glimpse of the world in which I live in or a question about the same,” said Huerta. “Because my view of the world and my many questions can be so diverse, you will find my art to be its parallel. I organize my questions and/or explorations by the collections I create and maintain.”

Huerta currently owns and runs his own studio and gallery located in The Arts District of Downtown Las Vegas.

WHEN:
Friday, September 14th
6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.

WHERE:
Animazing Gallery

sixth+mill pizzeria and bar to Debut in Two Locations

 

SIXTH+MILL PIZZERIA AND BAR TO DEBUT IN TWO LOCATIONS

New casual-dining destination restaurant to open its doors in Los Angeles and Las Vegas

FactoryPlaceHospitalityGroup is adding two more locations to its growing presence on the West Coast with its newest Southern Italian-inspired casual-dining restaurant, sixth+mill pizzeria and bar, in Downtown Los Angeles’ Arts District, opening August 18, 2018 and in Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian® in St. Mark Square Las Vegas scheduled to open April 2019.

“The chance to open our second location at Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian in St. Mark Square places us on the greatest stage and in the most perfect setting to establish the concept. I am excited and thankful to Las Vegas Sands Corp., who trusted our vision and, in a short period of time, gave us the opportunity to have two restaurants within their resort,” says Matteo Ferdinandi, CEO of FactoryPlaceHospitalityGroup.

In June, the hospitality group announced plans to open The Factory Kitchen Las Vegas December 2018, also at The Venetian. sixth+mill is a more casual-dining concept from FactoryPlaceHospitalityGroup and will open first in Downtown Los Angeles.

“We are thrilled to continue serving our beloved Downtown Los Angeles community that has supported us since day one,” says Ferdinandi.

sixth+mill is led by Mr. Ferdinandi and FactoryPlaceHospitalityGroup Culinary Director Angelo Auriana. The restaurant reflects Chef Angelo’s Southern Italian heritage. The focus of the restaurant is intended to elicit the taste and emotion of his childhood memories and offer guests a taste of Southern Italy. Besides the pizza, sixth+mill will also feature small plates, fritters, salads and durum wheat pastas.

Chef Angelo also draws upon a few recipes from his father’s home cooking, such as the Pizza alla Montanara, a fried dough topped with a rich tomato sauce and Scamorza, traditionally served during special family gatherings. The Gnocchi alla Sorrentina, a hearty dish from Campania, is a deep simmering dish of garlic-infused potato gnocchi with a bright tomato sauce, topped with bubbling mozzarella and fresh basil.

Chef Angelo has imported a Mario Acunto’s Neapolitan-style wood-fired oven encased with refractory bricks, allowing a thermal source of heat to provide consistency throughout the baking process. A traditional Italian spiral mixer slow mixes the dough allowing for a better fermentation process that develops a lighter dough and signature flavor.

Those elements paired with Chef Angelo’s own natural yeast and a mix of flours creates pizza that is slightly crispy on the outside, soft and tender inside, light and highly digestible. Imported ingredients including cheeses, cured meats, and olive oil from the mountainous terrain of Molise, coupled with local produce, enhance the authenticity and freshness of each dish.

An affordable wine list, designed by FactoryPlaceHospitalityGroup Beverage Director, Sommelier and Partner Francine Diamond-Ferdinandi, features selections that correspond to the menu and focus on Italian Southern Regions. The Spirits complement sixth+mill pizzeria and bar’s thoughtful combination of seasonal and locally sourced ingredients. Draft beers offer crisp and refreshing selections from local breweries and beyond, while the cocktail list includes the San Gennaro: Bols Genever, Carpano and a splash of soda and a vibrant red Malafemmena or “bad woman” cocktail, named after the famous Italian song, made with tomato juice, spices and vodka.

Ferdinandi and Auriana share the vision of imparting their Italian roots and memories through food and welcoming hospitality. sixth+mill pizzeria and bar is the second Las Vegas-based restaurant for FactoryPlaceHospitalityGroup. It will join its sister restaurant The Factory Kitchen Las Vegas—scheduled to open December 2018—at Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian in St. Mark’s Square in April 2019.

The Downtown Los Angeles Arts District location will open August 18, 2018 at 1335 East 6th Street. sixth+mill pizzeria and bar will serve an all-day menu, 11 a.m. – 11 p.m. Sunday – Thursday and 11 a.m. – midnight Friday and Saturday at both locations.

The first of a quarterly series of events called Art Connect will debut on March 22, showcasing one local downtown artist each quarter. Animazing Gallery is giving 10% of the nights proceeds to help support the Arts District.

Art Connect connects the communities and informs locals and tourists about the great art and galleries both on and off the Las Vegas Strip.

The much anticipated event will debut and feature artist Effie Hlad of the Arts Factory. Hlad will debut exclusive works to Animazing Gallery as part of the Art Connect event. Local street violinist Alex Rivers will also be performing.

WHO:
Effie Hlad is a mixed media artist born and raised in Atlanta, GA as a first generation American in a Greek family. She grew up learning how to sew, knit, and embroider which has heavily influenced her art now. Effie began her studies in art at the University of Georgia where she was classically trained using traditional tools and methods, then completed her BFA at Georgia State University where her teachers encouraged her to stray away from traditional rules. Due to this diversity in training, her work drifts between surrealism and abstraction as it explores narratives and spiritual ideas using a variety of media and techniques.

For fifteen years, Effie has shown her work in group exhibitions and artistic collaborations including the creation of a mural in the High Museum of Art in 2012. She currently owns and runs her own studio and gallery located in The Arts District of Downtown Las Vegas.

ON JAN. 12 THE WATERFALL ATRIUM AND GARDENS TRANSFORM FOR CHINESE NEW YEAR

To commemorate the Year of the Dog, the eleventh position in the Chinese zodiac, The Venetian and The Palazzo’s floral and horticulture team worked with a team of artisans and consulted a feng shui master to create an installation that features a Chinese Shar-Pei, named Vincenzo Li that sits 16 feet tall.

“Throughout the last 10 months, 86 artisans worked to create this installation,” said Dana Beatty, executive director of floral and horticulture at The Venetian and The Palazzo. “The Chinese New Year holiday is an important one for our guests, and we aim to create something that is not only memorable, but culturally accurate.”

The Shar-Pei existed in China since ancient times and was chosen as the featured canine for the display because it symbolizes good fortune and protection. The feature Shar-Pei was hand-sculpted and covered in artificial fur to achieve his robust appearance. There are nine additional Shar-Peis positioned throughout the resort, as well as a three-foot hare, the secret friend of the dog.

EYE CEREMONY AND LION DANCE CELEBRATION ON FEB. 16

A highlight of Chinese New Year celebrations, the lion dance, is said to bring good luck and prosperity, with which The Venetian and The Palazzo will officially kick off Lunar New Year at 3:00 p.m. on Feb. 16. The ceremonial lion dance will begin with an eye ceremony at The Venetian porte cochere. The dance will wind its way through The Venetian lobby and casino before stopping in The Palazzo Waterfall Atrium, then continuing through The Palazzo casino, lobby, and ending at The Palazzo porte cochere. This exciting event features firecrackers, and a parade of dancers and drummers in authentic clothing.

IN CONCERT: HACKEN LEE 30TH ANNIVERSARY

Lee has received multiple awards across four decades (1980s, 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s) and has maintained his popularity, releasing albums on a regular basis.
