ALOHA ALL OVER Turns out this year’s tasty newbie California Noodle House was only the beginning. Boyd Gaming announced a complete face-lift is underway at its seminal Downtown hotel-casino the California, with almost every public area including the valet and porte cochère, guest registration and casino floor getting refreshed in modern Hawaiian colonial style. Those renovations will be wrapped up in early 2016, to be quickly followed by a complete redesign and upgrade of almost all of the Cal’s 500 hotel rooms and suites. More new food and beverage options are on the way as well. –Brock Radke

AIR BEER Distribution of local craft beer expands to the skies January 1, when Allegiant Air will begin offering cans of Tenaya Creek Brewery’s Bonanza Brown Ale on flights out of Las Vegas; LA; Oakland; Honolulu; Mesa, Arizona; and Bellingham, Washington. That means a good chunk of tourists will get their introduction to the city’s flourishing craft-beer scene before their planes even land, and better yet, Las Vegans can enjoy a quality local brew at 30,000 feet. But does it pair well with peanuts?
