Candy Cane Lane on Laughlin Riverwalk

Laughlin, NV

Pioneer Casino - Riverwalk


We were happy to see the Pioneer got their Candy Cane Lane up again this year.   For awhile we were thinking they might not.   We had seen employees working to prepare them just a few days ago.  

Stop by and check it out right on the Laughlin Riverwalk behind the Pioneer Casino.  It is located right under the large River Rick (cowboy) sign.  In fact, at night it is somewhat bathed in the orange glow from the sign.

We expect the display will be up through Christmas and perhaps until New Years but....we recommend you go see it soon.  Winds off the River could blow it around if they pick up later on.

Sneak Peek at Menu - Guy Fieri's El Burro Borracho

Laughlin, NV

El Burro Borracho is only days from opening!

We just had to share a sneak peek at the menu of the new Guy Fieri restaurant, El Burro Borracho at Harrah's Laughlin.   Looks like there will be a soft opening on December 29th*. 

While you can't fully see everything on the menu, you can see it is virtually all high end Mexican based selections.     (Click on photo's to see a larger view)


Drinks


Burritos, Fajitas, Enchiladas and Build Your Own Platters

Signature Items




Desserts
 Preparations are underway for the opening.  Here are a couple interior shots shared on our Laughlin Buzz Facebook Group Page (Join the Group Here)





Drinks look like they will feature domestic, imported and draft selections.  Plus specialty Margaritas, Cocktails, and Brain Freezes.  The drink menu looks very similar to that of Guy Fieri's Kitchen and Bar in Las Vegas.  It may not be for everyone be we have tried and loved the Austin Sweet Tea. 

Prices look high end as to be expected.  They are very similar to Vegas pricing too, which may not go over as easily in the Laughlin market.  This remains to be seen.  But remember, portions most likely will be very big and share-able.  This is Total Rewards connected so using your players club will get you a buck off on most food items.   See our review here when we visited his other restaurant. 

Stay tuned for more news on the opening.

Almost time to make the Dunkin Donuts in Laughlin

Laughlin, Nevada

December 18, 2014

While wandering through the Edgewater Casino today we saw the temporary walls had come down where they are building the new Dunkin Donuts.   We snapped these two quick pics:




If you remember back in September Joe Klein on the Laughlin Buzz Facebook Group  broke the news about a  Dunkin Donuts coming to the Edgewater

Now it looks like the opening is coming very soon.  When we checked in on the group, Joe had shared even more (and better) pictures and some additional DD info.  It appears the shop should be opening early in January.

Big Easy Deli coming to Colorado Belle

Laughlin, NV
Colorado Belle Hotel/Casino

If you have been to the Colorado Belle you may or may not have noticed the little snack bar deli located by the small Sports Book.   The spot is being transformed into the newest eatery and will be called the Big Easy Deli.  We first heard about this back in September from Joe Klein on our Laughlin Buzz Facebook Page.   The opening date is not yet set but expected in early 2015.

When we were there the other day it was under construction with workers busily going in and out of the door and black plastic sheeting.  



Word is the Deli will be much improved, bigger, and open 24 hours (don't quote us on that one just yet as it may change).  

We also noticed some innovative use of Duct Tape to keep prying eyes from looking behind the curtain!

Beautiful December on the Colorado River in Laughlin

Laughlin, NV

The water flow (controlled upstream) by the dams was low on the Colorado River today.   We got a few shots of the River along the Riverwalk in Laughlin.

Even though it was overcast and only brief moments of sun it was a beautiful day.  57 degrees in Laughlin is considered by most to be "chilly" but with no wind today it was very nice.

Looking up river by the Colorado Belle.  You can see where the "normal" level for the River is.

Looking down river.  Pioneer Casino Cowboy sign (River Rick) lurking in the palm trees

No docking - Dangerous Undertow.  Just not today. 

No Wind makes the 57 degrees seem nice.

Despite how nice it was, very few people were out on the Riverwalk.

Laughlin Standoff and Robbery Suspect in Cuffs

Laughlin, NV



Needles Hwy / El Mirage Way

The suspect in the robbery of the 76 gas station on Needles Hwy in Laughlin is in custody. Apparently the robbery took place around 7:30AM.

He was hiding at the Colorado Bay apartments near El Mirage and Needles Hwy by the Catholic Church.  Swat Teams from Las Vegas, local Las Vegas Metro Police, Bullhead City Police, K9 unit, plus many others responded and he was apprehended without incident or harm to anyone.  Congrats to all the Law Enforcement parties involved for a quick, safe, and well executed response.

There is no confirmation to the speculation that this may have been the same person who robbed Aldapes Market earlier this month.

Update on developing story:
Police have named the suspect- Steven Alaniz. 

According to the Las Vegas Review Journal: 
“He got away with less than $300,” said Donna Sebolt, a cashier at the Mobil station. She said she was not sure if the man was armed.   The robber’s disguise — a black bandana over his face and a pair of sunglasses — was “not very good,” Sebolt said. 
“He was very calm,” she said. “It was very strange.”
