The Third Gordon Ramsay HELL’S KITCHEN Location in the Country (and First in Southern California) Is Anticipated to Open in Spring 2022
Today, Harrah’s Resort Southern California announced their partnership with celebrated multi-Michelin-starred chef and television personality Gordon Ramsay to launch a brand-new HELL’S KITCHEN restaurant, set to debut in Spring 2022.
The opening of this Gordon Ramsay HELL’S KITCHEN will mark the first for Southern California, the third in the country, and the largest outpost to date with 332 seats for guests. In line with the legendary HELL’S KITCHEN concept, the restaurant design and menu elements will be inspired and executed by the long-running FOX culinary competition series of the same name. The restaurant space will feature three areas for guests to experience HELL’S KITCHEN, including an elevated bar, full-service restaurant and elegant lounge.
“HELL’S KITCHEN at Harrah’s Resort SoCal represents one of our most exciting projects to date,” said Chairman Bo Mazzetti of the Rincon Tribe. “It’s an exciting moment to be able to bring such a well-known, high-energy concept to the resort and it’s perfectly in line with our continued commitment to keeping our guests excited, energized and full of options, while visiting us here at our resort,” he said. “We welcome Gordon Ramsay to the Harrah’s SoCal/Rincon family—we know HELL’S KITCHEN will bring an unmatched ‘Funner’ experience to our guests, family and friends, beginning early 2022.”
Rob Sedgwick’s Memoir Is One Degree From Kevin Bacon
BOB GOES TO JAIL On Sale July 27th
Rob Sedgwick was born into one of America’s oldest families and Manhattan royalty. His cousin, Edie Sedgwick, was Andy Warhol’s muse. His sister is Kyra Sedgwick, the actress; his brother is painter Nikko Sedgwick; his brother-in-law is movie star Kevin Bacon, and his stepfather was renowned art dealer Ben Heller, who pioneered the careers of Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko. In his hilarious and touching memoir, BOB GOES TO JAIL (Rare Bird Books, hardcover and e-book, on sale: July 27, 2021; $26.00; 9781644281086) Rob relates his journey from lost little boy to teenage alcoholic to inept criminal with honesty and heart.
In BOB GOES TO JAIL, Sedgwick—who had the drop-dead good looks of Robert Redford and the judgment of Keith Richards—recounts how the DEA and the NYPD caught him red-handed with 500 pounds of marijuana and arrested him. When his lawyer told him to get a steady job to show he was a contributing member of society, Sedgwick got a role playing a drug lord on ONE LIFE TO LIVE.
He writes about how he and his younger siblings brought themselves up in an Upper East Side Townhouse that was “bigger than all the other Upper East Side Townhouses.” How he sold drugs out of his grandparents’ apartment, carelessly fathered a child, and did lines of cocaine off his parents’ priceless antiques. Though you cringe at each bad decision—and there are so many—you can’t help but root for him. BOB GOES TO JAIL is the story of an actor with a price on his head from a Mexican cartel. It’s the story of an emotionally abused stepson struggling with overnight wealth and stunning neglect. It is the story of the search to find one’s place in the world.

S&P Dow Jones Indices Launches S&P Cryptocurrency Broad Digital Market Index
New index measures the performance of more than 240 cryptocurrency coins
S&P Dow Jones Indices (S&P DJI), the world’s leading index provider, announced today the launch of its latest cryptocurrency indices including the new S&P Cryptocurrency Broad Digital Market (BDM) Index. The BDM provides a wide performance snapshot of the cryptocurrency market and includes more than 240 coins at launch.
The index is part of an expansion of S&P DJI’s recently launched series of digital asset benchmarks, the S&P Digital Market Indices. The new indices being added include the following:
- S&P Cryptocurrency Broad Digital Market (BDM) Index
- S&P Cryptocurrency LargeCap Index – a subset of the BDM that measures the performance of the constituents with the largest market capitalization.
- S&P Cryptocurrency BDM Ex-MegaCap Index– a subset of the BDM that excludes the constituents of the S&P Cryptocurrency MegaCap Index (Bitcoin and Ethereum).
- S&P Cryptocurrency BDM Ex-LargeCap Index – a subset of the BDM that excludes constituents of the S&P Cryptocurrency LargeCap Index.
- S&P Cryptocurrency LargeCap Ex-MegaCap Index – a subset of the BDM that measures the performance of the constituents of the S&P Cryptocurrency LargeCap Index, excluding the constituents of the S&P Cryptocurrency MegaCap Index.
These new cryptocurrency indices join the existing benchmarks that make up the S&P Digital Market Indices:
- S&P Bitcoin Index – measures the performance of Bitcoin.
- S&P Ethereum Index – measures the performance of Ethereum.
- S&P Cryptocurrency MegaCap Index – measures the performance of Bitcoin and Ethereum digital assets.
The indices use pricing data from Lukka, a crypto software and data provider, to determine the eligibility universe and pricing of individual constituents. S&P DJI’s Index Committee administers the indices. S&P DJI first announced new cryptocurrency asset index capabilities with Lukka in December 2020.
The market for cryptocurrency assets continues to grow and with that, transparent benchmarking and index-based solutions based on crypto and blockchain assets are more essential than ever. The Digital Market Indices will make it easier for investors to access and assess this emerging technology-driven asset class while potentially mitigating some of the common risks associated with this traditionally speculative market.
“For more than a century, our indices have offered insight into how the markets are performing. Now, with the introduction of the S&P Cryptocurrency Broad Digital Market Index, we’re providing that answer to cryptocurrency investors,” said Peter Roffman, Global Head of Innovation and Strategy at S&P Dow Jones Indices. “The expansion of our Digital Market Indices family gives one of the broadest snapshots yet of this rapidly growing asset class with the ability to slice and dice by market cap. We’re excited to bring this significant level of additional transparency to the cryptocurrency market.”
