In Brief: ‘Crazy Girls’ gets updated and Symphony Park gets bridged

Even crazier Girls One of the oldest shows on the Strip is getting a makeover. Another one. Last year, Crazy Girls updated their classic “butt photo;” this year, they’re updating the show it advertises. “For the next three weeks,” Crazy Girl Danielle says, “we’ll be redoing the opening with an original song. And we’re adding a sexy new number where the girls get up close with the audience. We’re also bringing in three beautiful dancers and an amazing contortionist. There are a couple more things, too, but you’ll have to come see for yourself!” –Rick Lax

Other side of the tracks It’s been more than two weeks since the City of Las Vegas opened the Symphony Park Pedestrian Bridge, and some of us have yet to articulate the ways in which it has transformed our lives. That’s not entirely surprising given that the elevated corridor connecting the park and Downtown above the Union Pacific Railroad tracks has yet to have its moment. The $4.5 million project will likely shine brightest once its adjacent City Hall parking garage starts doubling as Smith Center parking. –Kristen Peterson

Nas wants to sell you sneakers Jimmy Buffett doesn’t serve the drinks at Margaritaville. Kim won’t ring you up for that Kardashian yo-yo at the Khaos boutique inside the Mirage. And Gordon Ramsay isn’t flipping your burger at his Caesars Palace pub. So, odds are Nas will not be selling shoes when his planned Vegas sneaker outpost opens sometime this year. Celebrity hype can be cool, but supporting our local independents in the trenches every day is so much cooler. –Erin Ryan
