Just Another Saturday Night

OLD LAS VEGAS seemed to be back, for a short while anyway, as Norm Crosby spent over an hour entertaining a full house at Las Vegas Rocks Café. The club has a nostalgia look to it, with a bar area, club area and showroom area. By the way, not one foul word was used in Norm’s unique delivery of jokes. He was preceded by John Garafalo, who paid tribute in song to some of the great tenors.   

Now I should let you know that drink prices, at least the house wine, seems to change as the venue changes. And one very classless act was a refusal to validate the parking slips for someone because the tickets for the show were comped.  If you’re trying to build a reputation, you might as well try for a good reputation.

After the show we did head over to the Golden Nugget for a late bite and to listen to Frankie Moreno sing in the lounge. He has a wonderful voice and great style on the piano with a talented group of musicians backing him up. And of course, we had our final stop at Chianti Café, to see old friends and make sure they hadn’t run out of Vodka. They didn’t.

NOW OPEN Ferraro’s

BELOW IS THE press release. You can read that in a minute. Now let me tell you about the  Grand Opening. It was first class. The food, the wine and the entertainment were all superb. Kent Foote and his wife Launa were gracious hosts, as were Gino and Mimmo Ferraro. All four are principles in the business and have a beautiful new venue. Kent was singing along with Paul Stevenson on piano, Vic Jones on bass and Bobby Howard on guitar. The place was packed with friends, celebrities and press. Even the Godfather was there to give his blessing. I’m looking forward to some happy hour cocktails in the near future…and beyond.

Ferraro’s  4480 Paradise Rd. (corner of Paradise & Harmon, south of Flamingo) 702-364-5300
