SPEAKIN’ OF GETTING THE BOOT ... O’Sheas Casino will be demolished only to rise from the ashes like a Phoenix and become part of the Imperial Palace.

MANY A STEAKLOVIN’ radio guy has paid homage to Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse during a National Association of Broadcasters Convention. Now through Sept. 5, try the Power Couple, a $99 meal for two: a crab cake paired with a filet mignon including salad and dessert.
