Olivia Newton John - Flamingo Las Vegas

“Summer Nights” with Olivia Newton-John

Olivia Newton John - Flamingo Las Vegas

Just in time for summer, Olivia Newton John is prepared to “have a blast” with audiences showcasing her iconic music career that includes over 15 top 10 singles and four Grammys. Olivia’s show “Summer Nights” is the newest show to be added to the Flamingo Las Vegas’ great entertainment lineup. Her kick off performance was on April 8 and her performances are hosted in the intimate Donnie & Maria Showroom.

Olivia takes her audience through a journey of her career with songs from over four decades of music. Even if you aren’t a Grease superfan, you’ll be singing and dancing in your seats with Olivia and her eight piece band. The residency kicked off in early April and has been exciting audiences with her bubbly personality and ability to appeal to those who grew up with her and those that are just now falling in love with her charm.

Las Vegas is a great city to enjoy some summer lovin’ with friends and family. Head to the Flamingo Las Vegas and enjoy energetic and fun songs from Grease, like “You’re the One That I Want”, “Hopelessly Devoted to You” or “Summer Nights” and of course the classic, “Physical” from her 1981 hit album.

The Quad’s newest restaurant, Guy Fieri’s highly anticipated Vegas Kitchen and Bar, opened on April 17 and immediately greeted loving fans to “Flavor Town” by serving his Bacon Man-N-Cheese Burger at the opening.  The restaurant has been receiving great buzz about the fun twists on classic dishes and his over the top creations, like Guy’s Cheesecake Challenge featuring a mountain of cheesecake topped with potato chips, pretzels and hot fudge.

The menu includes delicious options for brunch, lunch and dinner along with a variety of small bites that would be great for happy hour after work or a casual lunch on the outdoor patio. The restaurant also features 16 crafts beer, Sonoma County wine and a frozen tap system shot bar since you won’t want your shots to be diluted right?

With the great weather almost year round, guests can choose to sit and dine on the large outdoor patio to enjoy the views of the Las Vegas Strip or to simply people watch. The fun and lively atmosphere is a must see, especially if you are a fan of Fieri’s as the cooking space and design elements resemble Fieri’s own kitchen at home and has incorporated his tattoos and memorabilia from UNLV, his alma mater.

Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar is open daily from 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. and is near the popular Carnaval Court and The Quad’s main entrance.

60MillRidersHeader

We have some exciting news to share with you today! We transported our 60 millionth rider on the Las Vegas Monorail yesterday at the Harrah’s/The Quad/The Linq station. From our projections, we anticipated the huge milestone to happen in the afternoon so we made sure to surprise the 60 millionth rider with a HUGE Las Vegas themed gift basket including a weekend stay, souvenirs and tickets to iconic Las Vegas shows and attractions to be presented by none other than former Mayor, Oscar Goodman and his two Las Vegas show girls!

Steve Riley and his wife Laura, from San Diego, were about to jump on the Monorail when our team surprised them with former mayor Oscar Goodman, his two show girls and a large Las Vegas themed gift basket for being the Monorail’s 60 Millionth Riders.

When asked why they chose the Monorail to navigate the Las Vegas Strip, Steve said, “[The Las Vegas Monorail] is a very convenient and effective way to get around Las Vegas, and we take it every time we are here.” 60 Millionth Las Vegas Monorail Rider

The prize package the lucky passenger received included:

Big THANK YOU to all our generous partners for donating a spectacular gift basket for the lucky 60 millionth rider and his wife! If you haven’t followed them on social media yet, be sure to stop by and say hi!


Congrats again to Steve & Laura for being our 60 millionth (and one) rider and sharing this huge milestone with us! We hope you have a wonderful time in Las Vegas and enjoy the amazing prize package!
