MLG Vegas is hosting $100,000 ‘Overwatch’ and ‘Call of Duty’ tournaments

BY KELLEN BECK

One of the year’s last big Overwatch tournaments is going down in Sin City.

MLG Vegas will host a $100,000 invitational December Overwatch tournament in the gambling capital along with a $100,000 open Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare tournament to kick off the 2017 World League season.

Eight Overwatch teams will be invited to compete against each other Dec. 16-18 while 12 North American Call of Duty teams will be invited to compete against 96 other teams over the weekend. Details on which teams will be invited have not been released.

MLG is owned by Activision Blizzard, the pair of companies behind Overwatch and Call of Duty. Not only is MLG Vegas the first big Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare tournament, it is also MLG’s first Overwatch tournament and Blizzard’s first time being involved with a professional Overwatch tournament outside of the Overwatch World Cup.

Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick recently mentioned in an interview that there will be an Overwatch league, The Street reported.

“What we’re doing is creating professional content. So we’re organizing around teams and leagues,” Kotick said. “You will have the Overwatch league which will have a certain number of teams. Those teams will be a combination of professional…and endemic sports teams as owners.”

That vague mention of an Overwatch league led many to believe that Activision Blizzard is creating the Overwatch League, although at this point the exact details of such a league are unclear. Whether MLG Vegas is a part of this league is unclear.

Mandarin Oriental residents form exotic car club

Luxury communities in Southern Nevada offer a lot of things — golf, country clubs and family outings and activities. The Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas at CityCenter stands out with its exotic car club.

The cars range from Lamborghinis, Rolls Royces and restored classic vehicles, some redesigned with a modern twist, “that are just as valuable as a new Lamborghini,” according to the group’s organizer, resident Frank Napoli.

Any resident or their guests can participate in periodic activities put on by the community’s car club, Mandarin Auto Club; some of which include a monthly coffee meet-up and a cruise to different places.

Napoli, who professes a love of fast cars, moved into the building this spring and noticed several beautiful, high-end cars in the valet area.

“A lot of them were sitting under covers, covered in dust,” he recalled. “They weren’t being driven. So I thought, clearly there’s a lot of car enthusiasts here, and I want to meet my neighbors, so we need to get these cars out and have a good time. So I thought up Cars and Coffee, and the Mandarin supported that. So did the residents. We’re on our third event. It just keeps getting bigger and bigger.”

In August, club members met at a restaurant owned by of one of the residents, the Eldorado Cantina.

In September, members gathered on a Sunday afternoon at the Chicago Motor Cars Las Vegas’ showroom that keeps an inventory of expensive, rare autos, which are mainly traded online, and occasionally loaned out for film and video shoots.

Napoli is a local luxury Realtor with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services. He says he’s “always been a car guy,” who had coveted his New York cousin’s Chevy Camaro Z28 from a young age. “Since I was a little kid, I was infatuated and wanted to have one, but they’re hard to find and I’m very picky. I finally found one this year, and had it restored.”

He can be seen cruising in his Z28 up the Strip on weekends.

New path to stardom: promoting Las Vegas slot machines

Trend alert: Both Vanna White and “Seinfeld’s” “Soup Nazi” actor made celebrity appearances for Vegas slot machines on Tuesday.

At the Global Gaming Expo, Mayor Carolyn Goodman presented a key to the city to White on the 20th anniversary of the ubiquitous “Wheel of Fortune” slots, which have taken in $3 billion and paid out 1,000 millionaire jackpots, says slot maker IGT.

Meanwhile, actor Larry “Soup Nazi” Thomas did the “ta-da” reveal for new “Seinfeld” slots at the Scientific Games booth in the Global Gaming Expo.

For years, the Strip has launched slot machines with slight celebrity appearances, but this marketing plan seems to be ramping up lately.

“Party girl”/actress Tara Reid helped get press for TMZ’s interactive slots at the Hard Rock Hotel on Aug. 29.

If stars do red carpets at nightclubs and restaurant events, why couldn’t the next place red carpets roll out regularly be casino floor slot machines?

Las Vegas is bicycle-friendly?

2016-09-20-12-18-28-hdr-800x600

By Lennard Zinn Published Sep. 21, 2016

For a decade or so, I’ve been riding my bike from downtown Las Vegas to Boulder City for the Interbike Outdoor Demo (ODD) at Bootleg Canyon, and it just keeps getting better. Now, about 40km of the 44km distance is on paved bike paths. It’s a joy to ride such a long way through a busy city without any concerns about cars. Add yesterday’s overcast, cool weather, as opposed to the normal sunbaked, triple-digit temperatures, and it was even better.

I have something of an allergy to taking motorized transport when a riding option exists, and I feel particularly strongly about this at Interbike, given that it’s a bike show, after all. I prefer pedaling to taking an air-conditioned bus, particularly one that you have to wait in line for. Nonetheless, every year I seem to be part of a miniscule minority riding to and from ODD. That said, I am not a big fan of riding up a steep hill into a setting sun that renders me hard to see for drivers on busy, six-lane roads choked with cars and traffic lights, and most on-road routes back from Outdoor Demo involve some of that.

But this particular set of bike trails avoids those roads completely, allowing enjoyment of incredible Las Vegas sunsets without concern for my safety. The route goes from Warm Springs Dr. (one of the less-congested major Vegas arteries) in the north along I-215 and then the Union Pacific Railroad through Henderson. A short piece of quiet road under I-515 links to another trail over Railroad Pass directly to Boulder City’s Bootleg Canyon, which hosts the Outdoor Demo. The bike trails through Henderson alone are amazingly extensive, and they connect to a 35-mile paved loop trail circumnavigating the River Mountains containing Bootleg Canyon and following the western lakeshore in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area.

Except for underpasses, this trail’s road crossings are generally at grade, and some of them can be tedious and even a bit confusing at huge traffic arteries. But contrary to what you might expect, Las Vegas-area drivers tend to be exceedingly considerate at the crosswalks. Even when you don’t push the button for the yellow flashing pedestrian lights, which equip almost every minor road crossing in Henderson, almost all of the cars tend to stop when they see you on the edge or in the median, waiting to cross.

Why Vegas Might Be Adele’s Best Bet: Mat Franco Shares His Take on the Magic of Sin City

vegassign

By DR. NANCY BERK @nancyberk

 

What music-loving American wouldn’t love to have Adele move over to this side of the pond? Rumor has it that after her global tour ends this year, Adele plans to refrain from touring for 10 years in order to be with her son. Tabloids have mentioned the possibility of a Las Vegas residency—which would mean having a family-centered home base with a designated performance space just minutes away. Not a bad solution for someone who was born to sing and wants be able to be available for all of those child-rearing moments and milestones.

So, I decided to do some unsolicited research for Adele in order find out what life is like when you take on a Vegas residency and become a familiar and favorite face on the Strip. I recently caught up with magician and America’s Got Talent winner Mat Franco, who began a residency at The Linq Hotel and Casino in 2015. FYI Adele: It looks like Franco is a big Vegas and Vegas residency fan. Here are his answers to my pop quiz….

Other than the travel factor, is the experience of performing and creating in Vegas different than performing on the road?

A residency stage becomes like the performer’s home, and the audience is invited to come over and play. Vegas is the best place to experience big shows in an intimate way.

What was one of the best surprises about doing a Vegas residency?

I was caught off guard by how comforting it is to perform in the same venue nightly. Before I started, I was concerned that I might get bored. Instead, that consistency brings much needed balance to my life.

Mexican Independence Day in Las Vegas: 6 great places to party

la-1473380163-snap-photo
Jay Jones

Mexican Independence Day and Las Vegas? Yup, it’s a thing. You can expect lots of Mexican music, food and, of course, tequila at events next week on the Strip and in downtown.

The Sept. 16 holiday, known in Spanish as “El Grito de Delores,” marks the beginning of the Mexican War of Independence in 1810. (Translated as “the Cry of Dolores,” it refers to the small town of Dolores where Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla made his stand and touched off the conflict that ended three centuries of Spanish rule.)

In Las Vegas, the celebrations begin 7 p.m. Thursday with a bell-ringing overseen by officials from the Mexican Consulate in Las Vegas at the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace. After that, guests will be entertained by strolling mariachi bands and dancers.

Events throughout the weekend include:

–Latin pop stars Emmanuel & Mijares perform Thursday at the Colosseum at Caesars.

–Mariachi singer Alejandro Fernandez also performs Thursday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
