Blue Man Group in Vegas



It is no surprise, I like to Vegas....A LOT.  On one of my recent trips with my husband, he really wanted me to go see Blue Man Group with him.  Honeybear (that is my hubby's nickname), had seen the show when they came to our hometown, and he was blown away.  So I said, Why Not?!

It was Fantastic!  It is one of those shows where you wish your head was able to pivot.  I didn't know where to look first, and I didn't want to miss a beat.  At one point, big blow up balls were bouncing around the audience.  I love when a show makes you a part of the fun.  And at the end, confetti!

When in Vegas with your kids who are under 21, it can be a little challenging to find a show everyone can enjoy.  Blue Man Group is one of the shows you know everyone will love.  There is comedy, mixed with music and tricks.  You get me with magic everytime.  I can't get enough of it, so BMG didn't let me down.

The Blue Man Group show, which performs nightly, with double performance on certain nights, is well worth it.  Luxor is the new home of the show and although the theater is a little smaller than the one at their previous home, Monte Carlo, it still delivers.

Check it out the next time you are in town.  I got together with Vegastickets.com to bring you a special deal.  Click here to take advantage of the savings and then check back with me to tell me how much fun you had!

History of Vegas Through the Neon Lights



It is no secret that I am in love with Vegas.  Any chance I get, I go. One of my dreams was to visit the Neon Museum, and on my last trip I made it a reality.  Honest Circle:  My husband wasn't as enthusiastic as I was about the adventure, but by the end of the tour, he was as into it as I was.  It is a walk through the history of the town.  From the conception to what it is today, all through the mesmorizing lights that I just can't get enough of.



Our guide, Ashley was chock full of knowledge, and her passion was palable.  She really knew her history, and if you had any questions, she had all the answers.












Walking down the maze of signs was so cool.  People flock to Las Vegas to gamble and see the shows, but not all of us know the history and how it all began.  Each sign we came across was cooler than the next.  I think my favorite story was about Binion's Horseshoe Casino on Freemont Street.  I never noticed, but the horseshoes are actually upside down.  That equals bad luck.  You need the horseshoe to be right side up, so all the luck falls inside.  I guess they didn't want people to win that much inside their casino.  Tricky, those Binions.










Aligiers Hotel is of course the hotel the movie Casino with Robert De Niro was based on.  They changed the name to the Tangiers in the movie.  When I look at this, I just imagine how exciting it was for first time gamblers and visitors to walk through the doors of this casino.













This Cocktails Steak Chicken neon sign is believed to be the oldest neon sign.  It is still in good shape.  This sign is in it's original condition, but there are signs on the property that have been restored as well.






My parents actually got married in Vegas.  I like to imagine they walked right under this sign.  I also don't mind thinking maybe Elvis performed the ceremony.  How cool would it be to get married INSIDE the boneyard of the Neon Museum?!  Good news, you can!!  The space is also available for special events.

I would highly recommend making some time on your next visit to Sin City to go and check out the Neon Museum.  Don't forget to share your pics with us too!

9-11 Tribute in Bad Taste?

A Walmart in Florida made the decision to take down a display in which Coca Cola paid tribute to 9-11 by using boxes of their product.  The store decided it was in bad taste.  How does this make you feel? Read more

DSW is Finally Here!




I am shocked, I am exhilarated, I am on the brink of tears, but most of all, I am ready to go shoe shopping!   DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse is finally open at Winrock Center, and it is everything we wanted it to be.  I went early on Thursday morning, and much to my surprise, I was THE first customer through the door!


What a selection... I was a little memorized with all the shoes.  Aisles of top brands and also some amazing deals that were a little too hard to pass up.  Just look at these Mary Jane's from Steve Madden.  The prices are reasonable and they have coupons all weekend long.  You can save up to $15 on select shoes.  My husband is definitely not going to be happy about this.


But you know what, they even have a clearance section.  Brands like Hilfiger, Madden.  I found a pair of Vince Camuto pumps in a beautiful gold sparkly color for just $20!

If you are looking for accessories, they have those too.  Socks, purses, even jewelry.  DSW also has shoes for men and children too.  The whole family can go and find something special.  So, I am going to just say it.  DSW is going to be THE place to shop for shoes.  The only problem now, finding a place to hide them from your significant other, lol.

So have fun shopping Ladies and Gentlemen.  I am sure I will see you in there, a lot!
