Top Chef Rumor Could Be Blow To Las Vegas

Last month's "Top Chef" rumor was that the sixth season would be shooting in Las Vegas.

However, there is now news that production is getting underway in Seattle, a city famous for it's rain and grunge music scene.

This morning, last season's British judge and barb-slinger Toby Young announced on his official Twitter that he had begun filming the next installment of the cooking competition show in Seattle.

 Losing the notoriety of Top Chef as a filming location, will be yet another blow to Sin City. Las Vegas has lost over 340 scheduled events in the last 90 days. 

That translates to about 111-thousand fewer visitors; 230 thousand room nights lost; and 131 million dollars in non-gaming revenues lost.

The downturn is linked to the nation's economy and congressional rhetoric about spending money on meetings in Las Vegas.
