South Point has announced that it will build a $30 million bowling center that will host seven big-league tournaments, along with bowling expos, conventions, and smaller tournaments, under a 12-year deal with the United States Bowling Congress. The two-level 60-lane complex will add to the casino’s existing 64-lane facility that will remain open to the public, while the new complex will be for events only. Construction is due to begin immediately, with an opening scheduled for 2015. The center raises Las Vegas’ status as a bowling town and increases the total number of lanes citywide to more than 600.

Aliante Twofer: Aliante players-club members can get 2-for-1 buffets Mondays-Thursdays throughout May. The offer is good for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, by swiping your card at a kiosk, limit one per day. Aliante is the former Aliante Station, located on the far north side of town.

Scintas Return: After several years away from a permanent gig in a casino, The Scintas have debuted in their new home downtown at the D. This is one of the most popular music-and-comedy shows in town, with tickets starting at $51.40.

Cafe Closed: The Studio Cafe coffee shop has closed at MGM Grand. The space is undergoing renovations and will re-open this summer as the 24-hour Avenue Bar & Grill. Knobhill Tavern has also closed at MGM. It’s the second Michael Mina restaurant to close there, following Seablue last summer. Mina is opening another restaurant in the Seablue space.

Question: There’s a sign at I-15 and Tropicana that says "Hotel Casino Coming Soon." Is something planned there?

Answer: That’s the site of the shuttered Golden Palm casino, where there have been rumblings of a reopening as a restaurant and Karaoke bar, but no solid plans have been announced. The 150-room property opened in 1980 as a Travelodge, converted to a Howard Johnson, then became the Golden Palm until it closed in 2006.
