Another arena under construction — the MSG Sphere at The Venetian

Work has begun on the MSG Sphere arena at The Venetian.

The more than 18,000-seat entertainment venue will be equipped with state-of-the-art technology that will allow sound to be directed with such precision that translations in different languages can be sent to specific seats without the use of headphones or wires.

The complex, being built behind the Venetian casino on Sands Avenue, is scheduled for completion in fiscal 2021.

Las Vegas’ will be the first Sphere created by Madison Square Garden in a collaboration with Sands Corp. A second Sphere is planned for London.

More than $100 buffet: The price of the Bally’s Sterling Brunch was raised again, this time by $10 to $105. It’s the first Las Vegas buffet to crack the $100 mark. Pricey, yes, but the Sunday buffet includes king crab legs, American sturgeon caviar, and unlimited Perrier-­Jouet Champagne.

Quarter beer: One of Vegas’ best deals has sustained a five-fold price increase but it’s still a deal. Formerly only a nickel, draft beers at the Flamingo are now 25 cents. The deal is available in the Margaritaville Casino area’s 5 O’Clock Somewhere Bar daily from 5 to6 p.m.

Bellagio fall display: The Conservatory at Bellagio has unveiled its fall display, “Falling Asleep.” The centerpiece is a 28-foot-long horizontal harvest goddess; other features include 10-foot-tall tigers, frolicking foxes, polychrome dragonflies and peacocks, an enchanted talking tree and a huge pomegranate. The display runs through Nov. 24 and admission is free.

Question: Where is the new White Castle located?

Answer: A third Southern Nevada White Castle has opened, but this one’s not in Las Vegas. It’s located on Interstate 15 at Terrible’s Road House, a huge travel stop that opened earlier this year in Jean, about 25 miles south of Las Vegas. It’s the only location of the three White Castles that has a drive-thru.
