    They are currently on tour, and will be at DB's Pong and Pool Hall in Las Vegas on November 30th. PLAZA is starting a new show called THE PHAT PACK, which seems to be their own riff on THE RAT PACK IS BACK. Why not just get that show to return? It was a great fit. :nono:

    I believe that the Plaza Showroom is what's called a "four walls showroom." Basically what that means is that they rent out the showroom.

    I don't know about the Plaza, but that's what Wayne Newton was doing near the end at Stardust. The Stardust just collected the rent, even though at the time they had all this hoopla over the millions he was going to paid to perform there. All bogus, just PR.

    As of March 2012, Anthony Cools was still overseeing entertainment at the Plaza. He had promised that the failed AVANTE GARDE (which closed in less than a month) would return in a different form with a new name (that didn't happen). Now that both incarnations of his lounge at Plaza have closed down, I'm guessing he has left the building, both figuratively and literally. And these new shows coming in don't appear to be an improvement. What a mess.
