Sunday News had a short break from the action. As a writer, the lack of news was a nice break from the usual week in Las Vegas. However, I knew the following week would be different when I saw a few new rumors shortly after we posted last week. Unlike last week, there’s a lot of news so let’s just get to it.

The FoundersCard, an excellent program with a unique blend of airline, hotel, business and lifestyle benefits, has a deal that is rumored to be going away at the end of October.
During November visitors will have lots to be thankful for – and they don’t even have to wait until Thanksgiving.
They’re already available for play, but the “official” debut of the first video-gaming machines in a U.S.-based casino is Nov. 2 at Bally’s Wild Wild West, Caesars and Harrah’s. The premier game, “Danger Arena,” is a first-person action video game in which player skill determines the payout.
I wasn’t feeling that flush, so I slid my mouse over to Robuchon’s other Vegas outpost – L’Atelier De Joël Robuchon. It’s a bit less formal and has 1 Michelin Star.

I opted for seats at the bar, so my colleague and I could take in the action, and maybe take a few notes to improve our own kitchen skills.

What better way to take advantage of the beautiful turquoise waters of Mexico than to go on a booze cruise?
I look forward to writing Sunday News because there has been something interesting happening every week since TravelZork launched. Having said that, last week might have been the slowest news week in Las Vegas in a while. A few restaurants opened, a new residency launched and I just learned about a new fee to hit Las Vegas.
There are times when I go out to eat and don’t have the intention of writing a review of the experience. Sometimes a nice meal is best kept among the diners. That was the plan when I visited Rx Boiler Room at Mandalay Bay.
If you have recently tried to access KLM Upgrade Bidding via the “Upgrade Yourself” portal you probably have noticed that this service is not available. After a few inquiries, KLM has confirmed that the link is “temporarily unavailable.”
