Openings & Closings:

Guy Fieri begins new adventure; Tommy Rocker’s in Henderson takes final bow

Guy Fieri takes a “selfie” with a fan’s camera outside his first Las Vegas restaurant, Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar on Friday, April 4, 2014.

Food Network viewers know Guy Fieri for his devotion to “love, peace and taco grease” and his journey to find dishes worthy of “flavor town.”

The former UNLV Rebel began his newest journey last week as he opened his first restaurant in Las Vegas.

Meanwhile, a rocker’s bar shuts down and a small-plates eatery closes.

A new shop promises to cater to obsessive pop culture fans, and a retailer known for its celebrity clientele sets up shop at the Linq.

    • Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar

      Food Network Star and UNLV alumnus Guy Fieri opened his first Las Vegas restaurant Thursday at the Quad.

      The 6,500-square-foot Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar offers all-American menu items such as a macaroni and cheese burger, but the restaurant also serves up Fieri’s take on traditional Asian cuisine.

      Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar is open 10 a.m. to 2 a.m., seven days a week.

    • Tommy Rocker’s Southside Grill

      Henderson hangout Tommy Rocker’s Southside Grill closed April 7.

      The bar, located at 10050 S. Eastern Ave., announced on its Facebook page that it was shuttering after 13 years of business.

      Local musician and owner Thomas Greenough, also known as Tommy Rocker, sold the location, a gathering spot for Chicago Bears fans.

      The restaurant’s sister location at 4275 Dean Martin Drive, Las Vegas, will remain open.

    • Kitson


      Los-Angeles based retailer Kitson opened its largest store yet April 2 at the Linq.

      The 12,000-square-foot store offers two levels of apparel, accessories, home goods and more. Kitson at the Linq will also feature Las Vegas-themed gifts and smaller, brand-based boutiques.

      Kitson is open from 8 a.m. to midnight Sunday through Thursday and from 8 a.m. to 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday.

    • Firefly

      Tapas restaurant Firefly bid farewell to Henderson as the eatery closed Tuesday.

      The dining spot, formerly located at 11261 S. Eastern Ave., shuttered weeks after receiving a C grade during a March health inspection. The restaurant earned an A during a re-inspection earlier this month.

      Two Firefly locations remain open in Las Vegas, one at 3824 Paradise Road and the other at 9560 W. Sahara Ave.

    • Ink And Vector

      Ink & Vector

      Comic and fandom apparel retailer Ink & Vector opened April 1 at Planet Hollywood’s Miracle Mile Shops.

      The new store offers merchandise branded with images from popular TV shows, movies and comics. Fans can find clothes and accessories bearing images of Marvel Entertainment heroes and characters from the TV show “Doctor Who,” among other brands.

      Ink & Vector is open from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and from 10 a.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday.
