Rumor has it that the official opening of Clifton's Cafeteria may have been delayed for an acoustic Imagine Dragons show. Clifton's Cafeteria took four years to renovate at the hands of Edison owner Andrew Meieran. We finally got to see the first two floors into their full glory earlier this month, with the public opening slated for September 22. Then the opening date got pushed back to October 1.

Eddie Kim, a reporter for Downtown News, posits a theory for the delay: Vegas pop rock act, Imagine Dragons.

The show definitely happened, and appeared to be part of an iHeartRadio event called Destination Unknown. According to the event page, fans had to take part in a scavenger hunt to determine the venue. It's not clear if the show was the entire reason for the delay, however.
