After months of speculation about what would be done with the former Las Vegas Village concert grounds, site of the Route 91 Harvest Festival shooting, firm plans have been announced. In the near term, the south-Strip parcel will be used as a parking lot for games and concerts when Allegiant Stadium opens next year. However, long-term plans are to build a community and athletic center on the site, and possibly a public memorial.
Betting bargain: Caesars Entertainment sports books are dealing -105 lines, meaning you bet $105 to win $100 as opposed to the standard $110/$100 arrangement. The “reduced juice” lines are available only on NFL sides (choose the winner against the point spread) on Tuesdays from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Express steak: Downtown’s Plaza has a steak special for $9.99 that might be served faster than any steak dinner in town. Order at the register, tell the cashier how you want your steak cooked, then take a seat and watch her cook it right in front of you on a press grill. She adds a scoop of mashed potatoes and a scoop of vegetables and delivers it in minutes. It’s served daily from 5 p.m. to close.
