Nobu at Paris Las Vegas

Nobu at Paris Las Vegas has opened. It’s the second Nobu restaurant on the Las Vegas Strip that Chef Nobu Matsuhisa has opened with partner Caesars Entertainment to showcase the Chef’s signature New Style Japanese cuisine. Natural wood elements add to the relaxing atmosphere of the 140-seat restaurant that features fresh fish and seafood in the form of nigiri and sashimi. This restaurant opening follows the recent redesign of 182 guest rooms and suites at Nobu Hotel Caesars Palace, the luxury boutique hotel within the larger destination resort. Caesars Entertainment continues to expand its partnership with Nobu Hospitality – the global lifestyle brand founded by Nobu Matsuhisa, Robert De Niro and Meir Teper. At Caesars Atlantic City, Nobu restaurant is scheduled to open in the late summer of 2022, followed by the anticipated debut of Nobu Hotel Atlantic City by the end of 2022. Additionally, Nobu Hotel and restaurant in New Orleans are planned as a part of the transformation of Harrah’s New Orleans into Caesars New Orleans.

HOTEL HAPPENINGS & PROGRAM PROMOTIONS – APRIL 2022

Sea Spirit and 50 Years of Victory meet.

We have watched the invasion of Ukraine and felt sorrow, sympathy, and anger. Ukrainians’ lives are upended. Many have died. Children are orphaned. Businesses fail. We know all that because we can see it in news reports or vignettes shot and posted by shocked citizens on social media. The war may be “there”, but ill ripple effects still reverberate across the globe. Every day is still a question of “What next?” Without turning this into a political column, I will (when notified) inform you of cancellations that may directly impact you. In this edition, please see the cancellation of Poseidon Expedition cruises. If you have events or promotions impacted by the War on Ukraine, please send details.

Music to stir the soul while trekking in the outdoors.

NEWLY OPENED AND COMING SOON

Music to your ears on your outdoor vacation adventure? Holiday River Expeditions has added the sweet sounds of music to accompany trips down the Colorado and Utah canyons, and while river rafting or biking. Bringing live music into the equation really takes the splendor and fun of a wilderness rafting experience to a whole new level,” says Karen Johnson of Holiday River Expeditions (Salt Lake City, UT). “Our first such trip in 2021 was an overwhelming success so we decided to expand the offering in 2022 and will likely continue to do so in the years to come.” The trips are selling out fast, and the musical groups may change, so contact the company for the available offerings.

The job market is much better than has been pondered, worried over, and misrepresented according to the latest numbers released Nov. 5 by the U.S Labor Department. Nonfarm payrolls increased by 531,000 in October, beating the estimate of 450,000, states the report. “This is the kind of recovery we can get when we are not sidelined by a surge in Covid cases,” said Nick Bunker, economic research director at job placement site Indeed. “If this is the sort of job growth we will see in the next several months, we are on a solid path.” Best of all for the hospitality, leisure, and meetings & events are that these industries have regained 2.4 million positions lost during the pandemic as more than 164,000 Americans have now returned to restaurants and vacations.
