Truly one of the best little shows in Las Vegas that may go undetected
for the visitor is The Showgirls of Magic at the San Remo Hotel.
Beautiful dancing show-girls whose magic is extremely slick and well
done, along with the comedy acts like Antonio Hoyos, Sammy King and/or
Mike Saccone. There's nothing more intriguing than "Sexy Magic", and
who knows just what might disappear before your very eyes. "The biggest
little show in town" performs nightly at 8 and 10:30 pm. except
Mondays. Don't forget to drop into the Remo's Bonne Chance Lounge to
see their fine line-up of lounge performers that includes the uncanny
voice and "saxy" sounds of Tim Ballard and many more.
Ortanique Restaurant is the beautiful new Caribbean themed fine dining
room at The Paris Hotel. The food is fantastic, the d‚cor is warm and
elegant, and the music is wonderful. On Wednesday and Thursday nights,
it's the Tommy Thompson Project featuring the best in contemporary jazz
to funky grooves. They perform from 8 p.m. to midnight with the after dinner
crowd dancing and diggin' the sounds. On Friday and Saturdays from 9
pm. to 1 am., it's the reggae sounds of Bonafide, the city's premier
authentic reggae and party band. Rastafarians and everyone else too,
cannot resist singing and dancing to hits by Bob Marley, UB40, "Yellow
Man" and even the band's own originals. Donovan Stephens leads the
group, who is a favorite of locals and tourists alike and the food and
fun at Ortanique should not be missed.
The Second City has a comedy empire second to none and has been a major
force in the industry for over 40 years. Founded in Chicago in 1959,
they have a new home here at The Flamingo Las Vegas. The troupe has
spawned such comedy greats as Mike Nichols, Alan Arkin, Joan Rivers,
John Belushi, Gilda Radner, John Candy, Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray and
many more. The unique show combines music, scene and improvisation to
present satires of politics, sex, religion and other every day
situations. The cast is extremely talented and the audience interaction
creates the flow of the dialogue so no two shows are ever alike. Kay
Cannon, Mary Pat Farrell, Mike Lukas, Jason Sudeikis and Mike Lukas did
a tremendous job of entertaining our group and who knows, maybe one of
these great talents will show up on Saturday Night Live very soon!
Dueling Pianos are rockin' the nights away at the incredible New
York/New York Hotel & Casino. The shows start nightly at 8 pm. and go
until 2 am. with the greatest sing-a-long party in the nation. Chris
Nelson, Mike Cavanaugh, Phyllis Griffin, Ray Glover, Michael John, John
Jones, and Conrad Hawthorne are the most versatile players in the world
and able to answer almost any request, including your Alma Matter's
fight song. Come check out these fabulous entertainers.
