Rock Station will be a category-killer. We are taking
everything we've learned throughout the last two decades
and improving upon it, which will once again raise the
standard of entertainment options for our local and regional
customers," said Fertitta. "While we will be
bringing new and exciting restaurant concepts to the Summerlin
