With the 47th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards being held April 1 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, Las Vegas has officially gone country—for the weekend, at least.
Country music arrived to much fanfare at Caesars Palace today (March 30), as the iconic Las Vegas Strip property hosted an autograph signing for fans at Serendipity 3 with ACM Award winners Little Big Town. The platinum-selling group has partnered with ACM Lifting Lives to perform “Here’s Hope,” an original song co-written by singer-songwriter and ACM New Artist of the Year nominee Hunter Hayes, at the awards ceremony this year to help shed light on child hunger in the United States. In honor of the band’s Las Vegas visit, Serendipity 3 Chef Michael Wolf collaborated with the Grammy-nominated group to create a special “Little Big Town” sundae, featuring vanilla and chocolate ice cream, hot fudge caramel, fresh strawberries, wet nuts (walnuts and maple syrup), gummy bears and gummy worms. The limited-time sundae is only available today, March 30, and costs $14—then fans can kiss it goodbye.
Although several of country music’s biggest names will be in town for the weekend, Caesars Palace will soon be home to one of country music’s biggest stars when Shania Twain opens her show, “Shania: Still the One,” at The Colosseum on Dec. 1.
Known for its sweet and savory menu, Serendipity 3 is modeled after the world-renowned restaurant in New York. Menu items include a selection of fun food items like the colossal-sized Dinosaur Beef Ribs, Triple Decker Grilled Cheese sandwich and The Hangover omelet, loaded with bacon, French fries, mushrooms and cheddar and jack cheeses. The restaurant has been visited by numerous celebrities since opening in April of 2009, including Marie Osmond, George Lucas, Jeff Dunham, Shaquille O’Neal, Holly Madison, the Kardashian sisters and Bow Wow. It is open Sun.-Thurs. from 8 a.m.-11 p.m. and Fri.-Sat. from 8 a.m.-midnight. Guests can access the restaurant through the main entrance of Caesars Palace or from the Las Vegas Strip.
