Top Talent to Honor Lionel Richie with Performances at Keep Memory Alive’s 23rd Annual Power of Love® Gala

Spectacular Night of Philanthropy to Benefit Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health

 

 Keep Memory Alive announces a star-studded line up of performers set to honor international superstar Lionel Richie at the 23rd annual Power of Love® gala on Saturday, March 16 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. The one-of-a-kind celebration of life and signature Las Vegas event raises crucial funds for Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health.

Paying tribute to Richie and generously lending their time and talents to Keep Memory Alive’s largest fundraising event of the year is multi-Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter, actor and judge on NBC’s dance competition show “World of Dance” NE-YO; Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter and Billboard chart topper Miguel; multi-Grammy award nominee and seven-time Brit Award nominee, singer-songwriter and actress Leona Lewis; New York Yankee great turned jazz guitarist and Latin Grammy award nominee Bernie Williams; multiple award-winning singer-songwriter, actor, director, activist and star of FOX’s “Empire” Jussie Smollett; and American keyboardist, singer-songwriter and musical director Greg Phillinganes.

The Power of Love® gala is a critical platform for fundraising and generates the majority of annual revenue needed to provide service, care and resources for patients and their caregivers in the fight against neurocognitive diseases including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s, multiple system atrophy, frontotemporal dementia and related disorders, multiple sclerosis and more.

“Brain disease does not belong to the patients alone, but their entire families. A caregiver’s job is 24/7, 365 days a year,” said Camille Ruvo, Keep Memory Alive vice-chairwoman. “We are honored to welcome these incredible artists to the lineup for this year’s Power of Love® gala, which allows us to fund the remarkable work being done at Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health.”

In addition to celebrating the iconic music of Richie, the evening will honor Lonnie Ali, wife and caregiver of the late Muhammad Ali, with the Keep Memory Alive Caregiver Hero Award. The award pays tribute to those who have gone above and beyond to care for those who are unable to care for themselves and Ali’s grace and selflessness make her a true caregiving hero.

Longtime Keep Memory Alive supporter and celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck will be joined by James Beard Foundation seven-time award-winner Daniel Humm of Eleven Madison Park, The NoMad (in New York, Los Angeles and the recently opened Las Vegas outpost) and Davies and Brook, his forthcoming restaurant at Claridge’s in London, to prepare culinary creations for the evening. Guests will dine, drink and donate with an exceptional silent auction, crafted cocktails, exquisite fare and top entertainment.

“Without the success of the Power of Love® gala, Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health would not be able to provide this level of care for patients and their families,” said Larry Ruvo, founder and chairman of Keep Memory Alive. “From valuable support resources to research, medical education and much, much more, it is Keep Memory Alive’s commitment to continue our mission to find a cure tomorrow, while preserving memories today.”

Wolfgang Puck Debuts Spago Overlooking Bellagio Fountains










WOLFGANG PUCK DEBUTS SPAGO OVERLOOKING
BELLAGIO FOUNTAINS 

Celebrated Chef and Iconic Landmark Converge to Create an Unforgettable Lakeside Dining Destination

When Wolfgang Puck’s legendary Spago opened 25 years ago in Las Vegas, the level of influence he and the restaurant would have on the city was unimaginable. The revolutionary restaurant is recognized for igniting Las Vegas’s dining scene into a culinary epicenter. Wolfgang’s relentless drive to transform continues today as the chef debuts the new Spago Las Vegas at Bellagio Resort & Casino,, bringing two internationally renowned brands together.

“For us, it’s the perfect synergy between Spago and Bellagio,” said Wolfgang Puck. “The resort’s clientele and my longtime guests align perfectly with Spago’s exceptional offerings and elegant atmosphere. It is truly a match made in heaven.”

Bellagio President & COO Randy Morton said, “Wolfgang holds himself and his team to unrivaled high standards in order to create extraordinary culinary experiences around the world. We are thrilled to welcome Spago to Bellagio at its new home within our award-winning culinary portfolio.”

New California Cuisine

Spago is inspired by California living with its casual elegance and farm-to-table ethos. Wolfgang hand selects seasonal ingredients to create the restaurant’s market-driven menu, featuring the chef’s signature fare paired with modern technique and creative elements. From popular Spago dishes to new dishes offered only at Bellagio, guests have a wealth of options to choose from for lunch or dinner.

 

  • Bellagio Exclusives – In addition to signature Spago dishes, Wolfgang has created specific dishes just for this new destination. The Baja Kanpachi Crudo brings a burst of acidity with pickled radish, yuzu gel and hibiscus ponzu, rounded out with creamy avocado and crunchy tapioca crisps. A Saffron Risotto features Santa Barbara Spot Prawns, housed in a special tank within the resort.
  • Lunch on the Lake – Spago’s lavish lakeside lunch options include a selection of Puck’s signature wood-fired pizzas, handmade pastas, salads and sandwiches as well as Wolfgang’s Famous Veal “Wiener Schnitzel,” served with marinated cucumbers, fingerling potato salad and mȃche salad.
  • From the Grill – Wolfgang brings his own signature to the Las Vegas steak dinner, allowing guests to indulge in prime meats, such as Wagyu and Japanese Ribeye carved tableside, and grilled fish such as the Turbot with charred baby leeks with gremolata.
  • Delightful Desserts – Spectacular seasonal desserts serve as a grand finale including the Tart Mascarpone Cheesecake and the soon-to-be-Spago-signature, The Strawberry, featuring almond-salted streusel, strawberry confit and micro basil plated with an artful and whimsical presentation.
  • Bar Bites – In addition to the full menu, Spago’s bar serves an exclusive selection of snacks such as Lemon-Herb Blinis with Caviar and Crème Fraiche and Spicy Tuna Tartare in Sesame-Miso Cones.


Sensational Sips

Innovation and familiarity may seem like contradictory notions, but that juxtaposition is what defines Spago’s cocktail menu. Crafted with house-made infusions, artisanal spirits and fresh herbs, these libations are inspired by Wolfgang’s culinary philosophy of embracing creativity using the world’s finest ingredients.

  • Creative Cocktails – Spago offers modern takes on favorites such as its version of the tiki cocktail called “Trouble in Mind” using Bourbon instead of Rum, complemented by Montenegro Amaro and Allspice Dram. The “Rogue Sour,” Spago’s version of the whiskey sour, adds depth of flavor with house-made cinnamon buckwheat honey and Amaro.
  • Worldly Wine – The globally inspired collection spans many regions of the world, highlighting an impressive number of vintages from the United States and Italy. Similar to the menu, the wine list will be seasonally inspired, starting the summer months with a strong selection of Rosé wines. In addition, the list features nearly one dozen wines from Wolfgang Puck’s private label, a collection of food-friendly wines that celebrate the spirit of food and life for which the chef is known.


Lake-Inspired Designed

The integrity of delivering a memorable experience is as rooted in the architectural design as much as the menu and service. Designer Gelila Puck collaborated with architects Massimiliano Locatelli and Annamaria Scevola of CLS Architetti to create a space that allows every seat in the house to capture its own unique perspective of the restaurant’s remarkable location.

Gelila Puck said, “The fountains were everything for us. We used the water as a key element in the design of the restaurant, bringing the beautiful feature to the forefront of the dining experience from the moment our guests enter the restaurant. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows highlight the grandeur of the space while distinct dining spaces meld classic architecture with modern art, all creating an atmosphere as memorable as the food.”

Highlights of the exquisitely designed restaurant include:

  • Local Artistry – Spago commissioned Las Vegas artist Katie Lewis to create a series of 20 topographical map images inspired by the Nevada desert landscape. One wall of the restaurant is dedicated to “Hugging a Black Hole, Hoping One Day to Forget,” a piece crafted by Jacob Hashimoto, known for his three-dimensional wall hangings inspired by his Japanese heritage.
  • Al Fresco Patio – The most coveted seats are positioned on the completely remodeled circular and covered outdoor patio giving guests unobstructed front-row views of the magnificent Fountains of Bellagio while enjoying Spago’s celebrated cuisine seated under the sun or stars.
  • Main Dining Room – This space boasts beautiful floor-to-ceiling windows imparting picturesque views of Bellagio’s famed lake from any seat in the house. Two exquisite chandeliers accent the room’s modern art pieces, while rich hues of black iron, velvet walnut and polished grey accents express a contemporary aesthetic.
  • Bar and Lounge – Adorned brass fixtures, rich smoked-oak wood floors, leather chairs and couches serve as the focal point of the classic bar and wine cellar. The velvet-accented bar features a modern and sleek bench designed to reflect the communal and social atmosphere.
  • Private Dining Rooms – Spago offers two private fountain-view dining rooms, each seating up to 20 guests. The private rooms feature translucent glass panels with elegant white sheers that act as filters, allowing guests to enjoy their privacy while being able to fully take in their surroundings.

Spago is located in Via Bellagio and is open for lunch daily from 11:30 a.m. – 2:45 p.m. Dinner is from 5 p.m. – 10:30 p.m., Sunday – Thursday and 5 p.m. – 11 p.m. Friday & Saturday.

The Venetian and The Palazzo Las Vegas Celebrate the Year of the Dog with Art Installation and Lion Dance

 

THE VENETIAN AND THE PALAZZO LAS VEGAS
CELEBRATE THE YEAR OF THE DOG WITH ART INSTALLATION AND LION DANCE
Chinese New Year celebrations include a lion dance to kick off Lunar New Year, performances by Hacken Lee alongside special guests, and more

 

The Venetian® and The Palazzo® Las Vegas will celebrate Chinese New Year with extravagant décor, entertainment, retail, and food and beverage offerings beginning Jan. 12, with special festivities scheduled for Feb. 16.

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

Hacken Lee is an award-winning singer from Hong Kong. Lee has received multiple awards across four decades (1980s, 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s) and has maintained his popularity, releasing albums on a regular basis. On Feb. 17 and 18, Lee, along with special guests celebrate Chinese New Year and also commemorate the 30th anniversary of his debut album.

Tickets can be purchased at any box office at The Venetian or The Palazzo, or by calling 866.641.7469.

CELEBRATE WITH SPECIALTY COCKTAILS AND BITES AT HONG KONG CAFÉ

Hong Kong Café at The Palazzo will celebrate the Lunar New Year beginning in early January with a specialty bar and curated menu.

The Venetian® and The Palazzo® will welcome Tony Award-winning actor Kiril Kulish to “BAZ – A Musical Mash-Up” on Tuesday, Dec. 26. Kulish, who won the Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical for his performance in Broadway’s “Billy Elliot the Musical,” will play the role of Scott the Ballroom Dancer in the hit Las Vegas production. In addition to being a ballroom and ballet champion, Kulish was featured in season 22 of “Dancing with the Stars,” as a professional dancer in the show’s troupe.

Born in San Diego, Kulish caught the performance bug early and by age 13 had become a three-time U.S. National Latin Ballroom Champion and two-time World Ballet Champion. In 2008, he landed the title role in “Billy Elliot the Musical” on Broadway, and went on to star in “The Real Love” and “The Silent Tears” at the Shrine Auditorium.

Wolfgang Puck to Launch New, Reimagined Spago at Bellagio in Las Vegas

 

 

 

 

 

WOLFGANG PUCK TO LAUNCH NEW, REIMAGINED SPAGO AT
BELLAGIO RESORT & CASINO IN LAS VEGAS

 

Stunning Bellagio Fountain Views and Chic Design will Create Ultimate Fine Dining Ambiance for
Chef Wolfgang Puck’s Celebrated Contemporary California Cuisine

 

Wolfgang Puck’s legendary flagship restaurant Spago, recognized for igniting Las Vegas’s dining scene into a culinary epicenter, will open its doors at Bellagio Resort & Casino in spring 2018. Marking 25 years since the fine-dining phenomenon debuted in Las Vegas, Puck’s now revolutionary restaurant heralded the era of celebrity chefs and haute cuisine that continues to define the city’s restaurant scene today.

The new restaurant will offer an elevated experience, featuring an open-air patio with prime views of the iconic Fountains of Bellagio.

“Just as Spago is credited with beginning the Las Vegas culinary revolution, Bellagio transformed the casino-resort industry when it opened with the first collection of world-famous chefs and restaurants,” said Wolfgang Puck. “My partners and I are thrilled to join the Bellagio family and introduce our new Spago to the thousands of international guests the resort welcomes daily. We reimagined Spago in Beverly Hills more than 20 years ago and look forward to doing the same in Las Vegas.”

Bellagio President and COO Randy Morton said, “Wolfgang Puck is known worldwide for delivering exceptional restaurant hospitality. From cuisine to service and, of course, style, he is intricately involved in all aspects of the business, providing first-class culinary experiences for his guests. Puck’s high standards are the same as those to which we hold our resort culinary program, making this an ideal partnership to continue elevating our dining scene.”

Globally influenced seasonal fare and signature Wolfgang Puck touches, such as gourmet pizzas topped with salmon and caviar, will be the focus of Spago’s market-driven menus, which will be presented with the outstanding level of service for which the restaurant is known. For lunch and dinner, guests will have the option to choose from an à la carte menu or explore the best of the West with Puck’s multi-course California Tasting Menu. A special bar menu of Wolfgang Puck favorites also will be available, along with an artisanal cocktail program and extensive international wine list to accompany the chef’s culinary masterpieces.

Designed by architects Massimiliano Locatelli and Annamaria Scevola of CLS Architetti, and inspired by Spago’s original flagship location in Beverly Hills, the new venue will have a sleek look and feel. Guests will enter the venue from Via Bellagio on the resort’s north side, arriving into Spago’s chic lounge and bar. Adorned with brass fixtures, rich smoked-oak wood floors, leather chairs and couches, the focal point will be a spectacular bar and wine room lit by a stunning neon light fixture commissioned for the space.

In the main dining room, beautiful floor-to-ceiling floating glass windows will surround the space, imparting picturesque views of Bellagio‘s famed lake. Two exquisite chandeliers will highlight the room’s modern art pieces, while bold accents featuring rich hues of black iron, velvet walnut and polished grey will express a contemporary aesthetic.

The restaurants most coveted seats will undoubtedly be on the patio, where guests will enjoy a front row view of the magnificent Bellagio Fountains as they dine al fresco.

The restaurant takes the place of Todd English’s Olives, which will close this winter.

Inspired by the beautiful villages of Europe, the AAA Five Diamond Bellagio Resort & Casino overlooks a Mediterranean-blue, 8 ½-acre lake, where fountains perform a magnificent aquatic ballet choreographed to music and lights.

MORE: About Sugar Ray Leonard Foundation
The Foundation was established in 2009 by boxing legend and six-time world champion Sugar Ray Leonard and his wife, Bernadette. The Sugar Ray Leonard Foundation is committed to funding life-changing research and creating awareness for childhood type 1 & 2 diabetes and to help children lead healthier lives through diet and exercise.

 

Throughout Leonard’s boxing career, he watched his dad and friends struggle with the many complications of diabetes and how it has affected every aspect of their life. Type 1 diabetes strikes both children and adults at any age. It comes on suddenly, causes dependence on injected or pumped insulin for life, and carries the constant threat of devastating complications. Type 2 diabetes in children is on the rise, fueled largely by the obesity epidemic. Leonard draws from his personal experience and boxing career to provide inspiration for funding research to combat the disease.

WOLFGANG PUCK BAR & GRILL NOW OPEN AT DOWNTOWN SUMMERLIN

Legendary chef expands into local community with first off-Strip location 

 

Wolfgang Puck, the world-renowned chef and restaurateur credited for igniting the dining revolution in Las Vegas, is changing the face of Vegas dining once again with the opening of his first off-Strip restaurant, Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill at Downtown Summerlin.  Now open daily for lunch and dinner, the restaurant showcases the master chef’s elevated take on the classic American bar & grill.

 

“When I, along with my managing partners Tom Kaplan and David Robins, first came to Las Vegas in 1992 for the opening of Spago, we quickly rooted ourselves in the city,” said Wolfgang Puck.  “It has always been important for us to become a part of the community in any location in which we operate.  It’s exciting we now have a restaurant in the neighborhood, which is something we have been interested in for quite some time while we searched for the right partner and location.  We look forward to seeing many familiar faces and hopefully new faces too!”

The restaurant’s approachable, casual lunch and dinner menus, led by Executive Chef Mark Andelbradt, feature Puck’s signature comfort food.  The seasonally driven menu is designed to accommodate a variety of occasions, from swift business lunches with colleagues to leisurely meals with family and friends or the perfect celebratory or date-night destination.

The menu offers a variety of healthy salads, handmade pastas and pizzas from the wood-burning oven, grilled poultry, steaks and seafood plus a daily rotating list of chef specials.  Menu items include the DTS Chopped Salad with market vegetables, crunchy quinoa and champagne-herb vinaigrette; Rock Shrimp Pizza with spicy tomato sauce, spinach and red onion; WP Private Label Burger with aged cheddar, red onion marmalade and bacon aioli; Rotisserie Free Range Half Chicken with potato puree; Scottish Salmon with white bean ragout and arugula-shaved fennel salad; and Mesquite Grilled Filet Mignon with Lyonnaise potatoes and herb compound butter.

The daily specials include Sunday’s Fried Chicken and Cheddar Waffle with black pepper syrup; Tuesday’s “Mojo” Pork Carnitas Tacos with salsa verde and pickled onion; and Wednesday’s Whole Roasted Sea Bass with garlic spinach, just to name a few.

The extensive children’s menu, complete with dishes named after the children of Wolfgang, the managing partners and directors, is complete with healthy and enticing options perfect for toddlers to tweens.

To complement the dining experience, the restaurant features a full-service bar with an extensive selection of classic and artisanal cocktails, craft beers and fine wines at friendly prices including Red Sangria at $6 per glass, wines by the glass ranging from $6 to $14 and beers starting at $5.

The 200-seat restaurant provides a warm and casual environment in a beautiful setting designed by EDG, who also created Spago at The Forum Shops, Spago at the Four Seasons Maui plus additional Wolfgang Puck restaurants around the country.  The design takes inspiration from Austin, San Francisco and Santa Monica, capturing the energetic yet relaxed lifestyle of each city, which is so much a part of Wolfgang Puck. The rustic colors and materials pay homage to the surrounding desert beauty and towering red cliffs of Las Vegas’ Red Rock Canyon.  The restaurant overlooks a beautiful park and courtyard and includes two open and airy patio seating areas.

The restaurant features private dining space, as well as a variety of options for events small and large. The team offers personalized service and attention to deliver unforgettable events and private functions for exceptional adult and children celebrations.

 

Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill at Downtown Summerlin is open daily, Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
