Sunday, October 8th Lunch 12:30 @ Hofbrauhaus
Several of us are meeting for dinner at the Mirage (Kokomo's) on Saturday, October 7th. Please let us know if you would like to join us so the reservation can be increased.
Afterward, Jamie & I will be at the 7:30 performance of LOVE if anyone else is interested or wants to meet for drinks later.
This Vegas info from The Dallas Morning News - Free stuff worth seeing:
The Bellagio fountains water ballet
The Bellagio conservatory & botanical gardens - autumn harvest exhibit begins September 25th.
MIX bar at Mandalay Bay - Free before 10pm ($20-$25 cover after) A $750K chandelier made of 13k pieces of blown glass. The ladies' toilets and mens' urinals overlook the skyline. Kind of an odd selling point, but sounds like the view is good.
The wildlife habitat at the Flamingo hotel/casino - Yes, flamingos included.
The Fremont Street Experience (downtown) - every hour after dark until midnight.
Places (some free, some not) that were suggested to be a bit lackluster:
The view from The Stratosphere $10 (MIX has a closer view of the strip & it's free if you get there early enough).
The Sirens of Treasure Island - free, but it's a 15 minute show meant to lure you into the casino & requires a 20 minute wait to get a decent spot, but no good vantage point from which to see the whole thing. 5:30, 7, 8:30 and 10pm.
Siggy & Roy's Secret Garden tour $12-$15 (but it does includes the dolphin habitat) - The audio tour is voiced by S&G "rambling on about what great conservationists they are...no note of the incident, and it's a bit of a touchy subject when you broach it with the animal handlers."
