PT’s Taverns Celebrate 27 Years in Las Vegas

PT’s Pub on Spring Mountain and Arville Street threw a party on October 2 to celebrate the 27th anniversary of its first tavern in Las Vegas.

On hand was Blake L. Sartini, Golden Gaming, Inc. founder, chairman and chief executive officer and Mayor Oscar Goodman who made a special visit to PT’s Pub.

A podium was set up outside the tavern where Santini spoke about taking over the business from its original owners and how it has grown over the years. He thanked the team members who helped make all 36 locations in town a success. “At the core of every PT’s are the people. We re-invent on a daily basis. What the patrons need is energy and the power of the people that run the business. Without the team members, we wouldn’t be here”, he said.

Santini introduced the Mayor as “The one and only greatest mayor in the U.S. and we are happy to have him here for our 27th anniversary celebration”. Mayor Goodman toasted the occasion with a martini and then read a declaration proclaiming “Oct. 2 the official “PT’s Day” in Las Vegas for the impact it has made on the community. This is what Las Vegas is all about…people inside having a good time.”

The Mayor also surprised Santini with a special “Key to the City” saying he is “a great contributor to the city, having employed a lot of people and provided lots of amenities”.

In turn Santini jokingly gave the Mayor a Martini Achievement Award. The always fun loving and humorous Mayor quipped back, “With this comes with 27 weeks of free Bombay Sapphire (his favorite cocktail).”

At 9 p.m. tavern guests throughout the Las Vegas valley received one free wine, well or domestic pint to toast “Happy Birthday” to the Las Vegas favorite. All Golden Rewards members hitting four of a kind in twos or sevens or non-poker jackpots of $50 or higher Oct. 2 to Oct. 3 won a free PT’s t-shirt, and during those dates, players were also give the chance to earn seven times the points.

Chazz Palminteri Celebrates “A Bronx Tale” Opening at the Venetian Las Vegas

After a successful run on Broadway and touring the play across the country to rave reviews, Academy Award-nominated actor Chazz Palminteri brought his critically acclaimed one-man show A BRONX TALE to The Venetian Showroom. The show debuted on the evening of October 7 with a special Grand Opening celebration and will run for a limited engagement through October 18 (dark 13 & 14).

"Ever since I was a young actor, my two biggest dreams were performing on Broadway and in Las Vegas. I am very excited to be doing my show at The Venetian,” said Palminteri. Although this is the first time he’s presented the show to a Las Vegas audience, film buffs and movie goers everywhere are familiar with the legendary 1993 movie version, directed by and co-starring Robert De Niro, that was based on the celebrated play.

On opening night at the Venetian stars in the audience included former boxing champion Mike Tyson, actress Vanessa Minnillo, actor and martial artist Chuck Zito, actress Marilu Henner, sports broadcaster and retired NBA star Gary Payton, pro golfer Tommy Armour III, San Francisco Giant Aaron Rowand. Following the performance there was an after party celebration at LAVO Nightclub at The Palazzo where celebrity guests and show attendees enjoyed delicious Italian specialties from LAVO’s kitchen along with signature cocktails while congratulating Palminteri on his outstanding performance.

A Bronx Tale, written by and starring Chaz Palminteri is a moving, coming of age story based on the actor’s real life experiences while growing up in the Bronx during the 1960’s and the unforgettable people he encountered. Alone on stage, with only a Bronx apartment building façade, restaurant window, and street sign as backdrop, and occasional sound and lighting effects, Palminteri brings an assortment of colorful characters to life in a tour de force performance punctuated by humor, off color language, and powerful heartfelt emotions. It is no wonder he has been receiving top notch reviews from enthusiastic audiences and critics alike (add me to that list) in its tour across America.

“A BRONX TALE is one of those stories that just grabs you from the start and places you right in the world Chazz Palminteri grew up in during the 1960’s,” stated Jason Gastwirth, corporate vice president of entertainment for Las Vegas Sands Corp. “Chazz brilliantly evokes a bygone era of hustlers, goodfellas and charismatic mob bosses who ruled their neighborhood with both compassion and ruthlessness. We continually strive to provide a broad spectrum of entertainment options for our guests and believe A BRONX TALE is a truly one-of-a-kind show with an actor of remarkable talent that will be right at home among our extraordinary entertainment lineup at The Venetian and The Palazzo including Phantom-The Las Vegas Spectacular, Wayne Brady, Blue Man Group and Jersey Boys.”

A BRONX TALE is directed by four-time Tony Award-winner Jerry Zaks and produced by GO Productions, LLC, a Las Vegas based production company.

Tickets are priced at $46, $66 and $86 inclusive of tax and handling fees. The show runs approximately 85 minutes and will begin at 8 p.m. nightly. A limited number of VIP Packages, which include front-row seats and the opportunity to meet Palminteri after the show, will be available for $146 per person inclusive of tax and handling fees. Tickets are available for purchase at any Venetian Box Office, online at and by phone at (702) 414-9000. For more information about A BRONX TALE visit
