Vegas: October 16

SHOW 12: Price is Right Live at Bally's

Yes, we went again. And it seemed that some of the prizes were the same as the Tuesday show. We even got seats right up front. We were hoping that maybe this time. And then they called the four names for the last game. And then as if it was meant to be:

"Jason Feng, come on down!". It was like a dream come true. I couldn't believe it. I wish my Grandma were still here because she would have been so happy. Unfortunately I forgot the price of the tabletop wine cooler that WAS ON THE SHOW TWO DAYS AGO. They are $130 if anybody wants to know. And I would have been on Plinko too. Oh well, at least I got a T-shirt.

No show here, but I finally got to meet my friend Michael Shackleford, also known as the Wizard of Odds. He has by far the best website on casino information and odds on the Internet. Visit him at Wizard of Odds and tell him I sent you! We only met for a brief time as we had other engagements to attend to, but I'll be sure to see him again on my next trip.

SHOW 13: Le Reve at Wynn

While technically not a Cirque du Soleil show, this had a lot of its elements. The "stage" was water-based and most of the show involved the water, but there was also a lot of aerial performers. It was very well-done and as usual, the performers were amazing. This show was probably my favorite.

SHOW 14: Zumanity at New York New York

Thanks to Joe, we had seats at the very front, in couches. Thanks to Joe, this meant that we would be embarrassed twice during the show. Zumanity is a burlesque-themed Cirque du Soleil show. There was a guy in drag who was the host. At the pre-show, some Chippendale dude walks by us and says "oh the gay section". Wonderful. Then near the end of the show the drag queen said the same thing. Thanks Joe. But it was a very riveting show with the usual amazing Cirque du Soleil performers. Wow.
