Stratosphere Hotel & Casino is proud to announce their new Dueling Piano Show. The fun begins at 9 pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights (opening June 13th) with drink specials poured by their outstanding flair bartenders and the most right-eous and outrageous tunes performed by the Strat 'O' Kats. These wild and crazy guys (and sometimes girls) rock the Crazy Armadillo Lounge with more songs, roasts and toasts than a Friar's club. The oyster bar is close by too, and what's better than a tequila shooter with a Blue Point chaser! Oh, my gosh, stop the world I want to get on! There's lot's of great times to be had at the Strat, with Images Cabaret presenting terrific bands, fabulous Celebrity Tributes performed by The American Superstars in the main showroom and the romantic music and ambiance of the Top of The World Lounge & Restaurant. Opening at the Top of the World on June 25, is crooner Andrew James singing Sinatra, and all the music of the Rat Pack era and more. Diners won't believe their ears as they enjoy their meals one floor below the lounge until he walks up to your table to serenade you in person.

Thanks to the Sahara Hotel and Jackie Brett, VP Marketing, for bringing Charo back to her home at the north end of the strip. Her new production, "Bravo", is a high energy, action packed extravaganza with dancers, comedian Sammy King or The Apollo Brothers juggling, the aerial adagio of Cees & Cathy, flamenco dancer Pablo Pizano, and as if that's not enough, we have our headliner, Charo! She is as beautiful and energetic as in her performances of twenty years ago and the talent displayed in her guitar solos is extremely moving. Her comedic skills are as strong as her musical prowess and her "Cuchi - Cuchi" ain't too bad either. Call the Sahara box office at (702) 737-2515 for reservations. (dark Thursdays)
