We all love the shows in Las Vegas but sometimes ticket
prices can be a bit steep. Now might be a great time to see some of those shows,
whose ticket prices are among the lowest ever, courtesy of The Animal Foundation
of Nevada’s, “Night of Hope.”
Once a year they make special arrangements with the
showrooms and hotels to offer greatly reduced ticket prices to benefit their
charity, and consumers can reap the rewards. There is actually quite a long list
of shows available at reduced prices, but they move quickly.
Some dates are available for show seats through May of 2002, but all are
at least available through the end of January.
Here are some excellent discounts, with the regular ticket price shown in
parenthesis. Steve Wyrick at the Sahara $16. ($45.95;) or The Rat Pack
$20. ($45.95;) Storm at Mandalay Bay $28 ($71.50;) Melinda at the Venetian
$20. ($55;) Lord of the Dance at New York, New York $35 ($59;)
Follies Bergere at the Tropicana $28 ($51.45;) or Lance Burton at the Monte
Carlo for $30 ($62.45.) All
tickets must be purchased at Von’s Supermarket outlets throughout the valley.

On to a few food specials this week, check out the Skyline
Casino & Restaurant in Henderson for their latest promotional offerings
like, a 20 ounce Porterhouse Steak deal for $5.95 that includes the
all-you-can-eat salad bar. It’s available from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. with the
salad bar, or 24 hours a day as a meal without the salad bar.
They also have a complete Prime Rib dinner served 24/7 for the same price
and salad bar deal. A breakfast special for under a buck, (99 cents to be exact,)
is served late night from 11 p.m. to 11 a.m. and the daily lunch buffet, served
from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., is only $3.95 and includes your choice of beverage.
For a little free sight seeing, stop in at Main Street
Station, in downtown Las Vegas, on the corner of Main and Stewart.
They have a free guide to their many artifacts, antiques and artworks
that are located and displayed in and around the hotel casino. There are many
interesting pieces on display for your observation and viewing entertainment,
even including a portion of The Berlin Wall. Pick up the free, brochure guide
booklet from the bell desk or hotel registration lobby area. (If you go, be sure
to stop by the Triple 7 Micro Brew Pub for some awesome suds! They often receive
some special awards for some of their unusual blends of home made brews. The
dark, Black Chip Cherry Stout is a favorite of mine.)
