Fat Tuesday business license suspended over Labor Day weekend

A popular watering hole on the Strip got its license suspended by county officials over the Labor Day weekend. 

The Fat Tuesday at Casino Royale received an emergency license suspension Sunday

For violating Gov. Steve Sisolak’s July 10 emergency directive “by not having a restaurant-type setting to serve alcohol in conjunction with food,” Clark County spokesman Dan Kulin said.

The New Orleans-style bar’s suspension “will be lifted when that type of business is allowed to open,” Kulin said in a statement.

A representative for Fat Tuesday did not respond to a request for comment

Over the long weekend, parts of the Strip and downtown saw an influx of tourists.

Sisolak taking in dinner, live entertainment

The last time we wrote of Pizzeria Monzu, it was to spotlight owner Gio Mauro’swondrous, homemade bread.

He and his wife, Las Vegas singer Naomi Mauro, were offering sourdough loaves for takeout for $7 apiece.

Those loaves became a Phase One Vegas shutdown hit.

We’re revisiting Monzu now, as a well-known patron dined at the restaurant Saturday night: Gov. Steve Sisolak.

He and his wife, Kathy, and another couple are shown in a video making the rounds since Sunday afternoon.

The video was edited and shared by none other than longtime “V — The Ultimate Variety Show” artist and emcee Wally Eastwood,

And recorded that night by a friend of Eastwood’s.

The video also surfaced about the same time on the @show_talent_productions Instagram page, with the message “Our Governor enjoying Live Entertainment?

I’m confused.”

Such sarcastic messages as:

LIVE ENTERTAINMENT IN LAS VEGAS and I HOPE OUR GOVERNOR DOES NOT SEE THIS! LIVE ENTERTAINMENT IS A NO NO!

Are edited into the 1 minute, 27-second clip.

The video has gone viral, at least in the Vegas entertainment community, with venue operators,

Business owners and entertainers sharing it on social media. “I guess he plays by different rules,” is one common (and printable) message.

Eastwood said Monday the message was not to shame the restaurant, but to generate a conversation about how live entertainment can reopen safely in Las Vegas.

The footage is shot from the second-level dining area down toward the main dining room.

It shows Mauro singing with her three-piece band, with Sisolak’s party a few feet from the stage on house right (VIP-type seats, actually).

A grand piano separates the Sisolak table from the stage.

The governor’s response

Sisolak responded by email to this original column post Monday morning:

“This weekend, Kathy and I were able to go to dinner at a local restaurant in Southern Nevada. It has come to my attention that questions have been raised over the fact that there was music being played. There is no prohibition on ambient background music, like what was playing at the restaurant — this has been allowed since the State entered Phase 2.

DAWG SAYS: MANY PEOPLE ARE ASKING WHY A RESTAURANT CAN SERVE FOOD AS LONG AS NO ALCOHOL IS SERVED.

DOES COVID KNOW THE DIFFERENCE?

THERE NEEDS TO BE MORE CLARIFICATION IN THIS DECISION PROCESS.

AND ANOTHER GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL IS OUT SOCIALIZING AND NOT WEARING A MASK

ANOTHER DO AS I SAY NOT AS I DO POLITICIAN
