After months of speculation, it’s official. Prince’s 3121 and 3121 Jazz Cuisine open Nov. 10 at Rio in Las Vegas. Here’s what visitors can expect:

  • Wednesdays: Prince Presents, featuring various artists TBA (friends of Prince and special guests). Ticket prices begin at $31.21.
  • Thursdays: 3121 Latin Libido Night. $31.21 cover.
  • Fridays and Saturdays: Prince Live. Tickets are $125.

Tickets will be available at the Rio ticket office and through Ticketmaster beginning later this week.

3121 Jazz Cuisine will open daily at 5 p.m., featuring a menu created by Executive Chef Lena Morgan.


A Day of Honors

The day started out great with a mention in Norm Clarke’s Las Vegas Review Journal column and news that we’ve been nominated for a few 2006 Trippies at Vegas Tripping. Longtime listeners know that we rarely begin the day without reading Norm’s column, so this mention is huge for us. And Vegas Tripping is one of our favorite Las Vegas sites, so the award nominations mean a lot. If you’re so inclined, we would appreciate your vote in the best podcast category, but please throw your best Web site and best blog votes to someone more deserving.


Prince Gets a Restaurant Too

Look for an announcement this week from Harrah’s about the long rumored Las Vegas club deal with Prince we’ve talked about on several recent podcasts. One detail that has not yet been widely reported is that Prince’s personal chef is getting his own restaurant too. Look for Rio to replace its steakhouse, Fiore, with the new place, which will likely be named 3121 Jazz Kitchen or something similar.

Just a Couple More Days

We’re not going to get this week’s action packed episode of Five Hundy by Midnight, the Original Las Vegas Podcast, recorded until midweek. We have a lot to talk about, but a couple things came up today that derailed our plans to record today. Sorry for the delay.
