Rock and Rita's Grand Opening

They spin. They twist. They juggle. They throw. They catch. They perform what looks absolutely impossible. They are some of the world’s top multi-talented flair bartenders of the new Rock & Rita’s “Great American Hotspot” that’s just opened at Circus Circus.

The party place welcomed Defending the Caveman star Kevin Burke, the gorgeous dancers from Fantasy at Luxor and pro golfers Nisha and Seema Sadekar, who star on The Golf Channel’s Big Break Sandals Resorts, to the grand opening. The Fantasy dancers led the cheering squad and roars of applause for the award-winning skills of the flair bartenders as they showcased their balancing and juggling acts to pour drinks.

Those drinks demand something special, and Kevin got the party started by displaying the Rock & Rita’s souvenir cup in the shape of a signature toilet bowl. Rock stars “Rock” and “Rita” made their debut at their namesake restaurant with owners David Tuttleman and Mark Green, who developed the successful Kahunaville in Treasure Island.

Chef Alfonso Coinstrisciani serves an array of dishes from breakfast to late night at the new entertainment saloon, including cheeseburger sliders, hot dog sliders, mini pulled pork sandwiches, fried bologna sandwiches and coconut shrimp.
