Knock, Knock! Who's There?

Fetch and Jett are eager new hires at Vdara Hotel & Spa. Real go-getters, they make deliveries to guest suites with items such as snacks, sundries, morning coffee, spa products and more. Also, they're robot "dogs." The fully autonomous indoor delivery robots use advanced technology to seamlessly navigate around people and objects. Fetch and Jett can prioritize multiple requests and wirelessly communicate with the hotel's systems -- even operating elevators. Upon receiving a guest request, an employee loads items into the robot's secure, tamper-proof compartment, inputs the guest's room number, hits the "Go" button, sending Fetch or Jett speeding to their destination.

Get a "Hangover" at Tussauds Bar

Inspired by the films, The Hangover Bar has been added to The Hangover Experience, which also showcases the hotel suite, wedding chapel, and wax figures of Alan (Zach Galifianakis), Phil (Bradley Cooper), and Mike Tyson, at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas. "Vanderpump Rules" reality starlet Scheana Shay and hunks from the "Thunder From Down Under" show hosted the bar's debut. Beer, wine and movie-themed alcoholic concoctions such as Buttery Nipple, Royal Flush, and Three Leg Monkey are $7. Premium cocktails, including Tiger's Blood, are $10. Admission packages include access to the bar. Attraction hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. or to 10 p.m. Friday through Sunday.
