Fresh off the release of his third hip-hop album “Astroworld,” Travis Scott returned to his Las Vegas Strip nightclub residency at Marquee Saturday night, but he didn’t come alone. The night also served as a follow-up birthday party for Scott’s famous partner Kylie Jenner, who turned 21 on August 10 with a mighty bash at Delilah’s in West Hollywood. She marked her legal status the Vegas way from a VIP booth at Marquee while Scott rocked the club, which also saw a visit from Stevie Wonder after his concert at Park Theater.
On Friday, one of the reality starlets of “Real Housewives of New York City” was spotted doing some birthday clubbing of her own. Socialite, designer and author Tinsley Mortimer celebrated her 43rd with friends and Dom Perignon while taking in The Chainsmokers’ set at XS Nightclub at Wynn Las Vegas.
Saturday night was a big one for one of my favorite local musicians, the talented Cameron Calloway. Not only did he get to open for R&B hitmaker Mya at Hard Rock Live on Las Vegas Boulevard, he joined the Washington, D.C.-born songstress for a cover of the Isley Brothers’ classic “For the Love of You.” Beautiful music is being made all over the Strip, people. Seek it out.
Another standout singer working in Las Vegas is returning to your TV screen. Daniel Emmet, the powerful pop-opera voice you might know from “The Cocktail Cabaret” at Caesars Palace’s old-school lounge Cleopatra’s Barge, will be back on the current season 13 of “America’s Got Talent” on August 28 after being previously cut by judge Simon Cowell. Tune in to find out if Emmet can follow in the footsteps of Terry Fator and Mat Franco, two “AGT” champs who are still headlining on the Strip.
Comedian and actor Jason Sudeikis visited trendy cocktail bar the Dorsey at Venetian Saturday night, partying with friends including “Veep” actor Sam Richardson.
The funniest dinner of the weekend had to be at Cosmo’s Beauty & Essex, where Amy Schumer met up with Westgate resident George Wallace and other friends after her second of two shows at the Chelsea. The “I Feel Pretty” star will be back in Vegas in the same spot November 2 and 3.
One of the Strip’s most popular Mexican restaurants is making a comeback. For years, Diablo’s Cantina drew tourist pedestrians inside for cool margaritas and spicy salsas Strip-side at the Monte Carlo, a space currently under construction to become Eataly at Park MGM. Originally operated by the Light Group and now owned by MGM Resorts International, Diabo’s will return to the Strip in December at Luxor, taking the second-floor space of Tacos & Tequila, which is set to close on November 25.
