Flamingo getting New Steakhouse

Flamingo will soon be getting a new steakhouse, as Burger Joint has closed and will be replaced by Center Cut Steakhouse.

Flamingo's previous steakhouse was closed in late 2010 to make way for the Margaritaville Casino.

In other Flamingo news, popular Mexican restaurant and bar Carlos'n Charlie's will be opening very soon. I assume they are working hard to have it open in time for the spring break party season.

Hooters sold to Creditor

Hooters casino hotel has been sold in bankruptcy proceedings. The buyer is the hotel's primary creditor, which placed a $60 million bid that was not matched.

Now we just have to wait and see what the new owners will do with the place. I suspect they won't do anything for a while, but I imagine they'll be looking to sell the property eventually.

If they can't find a buyer, I wouldn't be shocked to see the hotel close its doors.
