Saturday Night

It was just another Saturday night in Vegas. Next week the hotel/restaurant/bar/theatre staff and performers will be doing it all over again.

We saw the early (7pm) performance of _Spamalot_ and the late (10pm) performance of Cirque de Soleil's _Love_.

_Spamalot_ was a hoot. Recapitulations of classic Python bits (including a couple that weren't part of _Monty Python and the Holy Grail_) and some parody of musical theatre/Broadway/Vegas.

_Love_ has Beatles music along with Cirque staging and acrobatics - triple threat! There's an awful lot going on... I imagine some folks are very keen on seeing it multiple times.

One good thing about this trip was picking the dates very early. That meant we could buy tickets for shows the day they went on sale. Made for getting very good seats, which is a nice bonus.

I love Vegas. If you get this while there don't forget to go to Mandalay Bay and hit the store and the aquarium there. Fantastic.

I also like the Bellagio. I was there opening weekend. Or maybe it was the Venetian. The one with all the Chiluly crystal in the ceiling. The stripy wallpaper is kind of whore house-ish though.

Been mostly staying at Paris, nice place but not much to do there but gamble.

An early morning run up the strip, North I believe, towards the MGM is awesome and run far enough you'll find an outlet mall. It ws a long run. Ha.

Ooh, fun night! I imagine seeing Cirque multiple times could get quite costly, though.

Excellent planning and great choices. Cirque is by far one of my favorite shows as is Le Reve.
