Big Change at Bally's Las Vegas

If you haven't been to Las Vegas and passed by Bally's Las Vegas Hotel & Casino since Thanksgiving, are you in for a surprise (What, another?) when you drive down the Las Vegas Strip.

Bally's began construction on its $50-million, 60,000-square-foot Grand Bazaar Shops on the corner of Flamingo and the Strip last December. You know, that area where the circle arches and moving sidewalk took you from the Las Vegas Strip into the casino itself. Yeah, where you felt you were in a space station. That one.

They plan 150 retail shops, food places (including two full-service restaurants) and bars there, to open in the fall.

Meanwhile, here's what it looks like now:

Too bad my camera can't look into the future.

Do they still have the moving sidewalk? I didn't see it last time.

Everything in the front was boarded up when I stayed there a few weeks ago, I think the moving sidewalk is history.
