i♥burgers Opening Soon

Another new premium gourmet burger restaurant will be opening on the Las Vegas Strip. i♥burgers will be located in The Shoppes at the Palazzo. The burgers will hit the grill this winter.

The concept seems fairly similar to the other burger joints in Vegas. Customers can choose from specialty burgers or can create their own. A mixologist will stir up some tasty beverages and shakes, and i♥burgers will even have its own "fry menu".

When KGB was opening a few months ago at Harrah's I had wondered if the Las Vegas gourmet burger market was becoming a little too saturated. It looks like the answer is no, at least not yet. After all, almost everyone ♥'s a good burger.

Will MGM Implode the Harmon?

The Harmon Hotel is the one part of CityCenter that hasn't opened. Construction flaws caused the building to be capped at half the original size. Now the building is locked up in courts to determine if it is safe to complete, and who's to blame.

MGM has been pretty quiet about the Harmon, but in their latest earnings release they concluded that "It is unlikely the Harmon will be completed using the building as it now stands."

While nothing will be done anytime soon because of pending litigation and MGM's financial woes, it looks like the Harmon will eventually be knocked down and the space will be used for something more appealing.
