CirqueKA Melissa just sent this to me. 

Today, the groovy folks at Cirque opened up a special offer for Nevada residents on 85.71% of their Las Vegas-based shows.  (That’s 6 out of 7.  Can you guess which one isn’t included?)  The offer extends all the way until February 28, 2011!

Here’s the shows and promo codes:

Just saw this in our local neighborhood paper. 

The Tea Lounge on the 23rd floor of he Mandarin Oriental at CityCenter is offering locals 20% off their bill for tea and/or tea cocktails now through Labor Day.

What is a tea cocktail?

Good question.  Here’s a couple examples:

Royal Tea – orange vodka, simple syrup, chilled Osmanthus Oolong tea, splash of lemon juice, on the rocks.

Tea-tini – bourbon, chilled jasmine pearl tea, and apple juice, sweetened with agave nectar.

I wonder if I can hang a Lipton bag on the side of my Tanqueray and Tonic and call it a tea cocktail?

I’ve always found it odd that most businesses struggling to make ends meet catering to tourists fail to realize that there are two million people who live in the Las Vegas Valley who are hungry, thirsty and in search of entertainment as well.  While many locals avoid The Strip because of high prices ($18 for a drink?!  Are you kidding me?!?), more would certainly make the Strip Trip if offered a locals-only discount. 

So, here’s an official “attaboy” to the folks at Wolfgang Puck.

Several Wolfgang Puck restaurants are offering locals 20% off through September 30.  The offer is good for lunch and dinner food only (not drinks) seven days a week at the following restaurants:

  • Spago (The Forum Shops)
  • CUT (Palazzo)
  • Trattoria del Lupo (Mandalay Bay)
  • Postrio Bar & Grill (Grand Canal Shops/Venetian)
  • Wofgang Puck Pizzeria (Crystals, CityCenter)

Locals must show ID to their server to take advantage of the offer.  More info can be found at www.wolfgangpuck.com.

LasVegasLAComedyClub21 One of our favorite things to do here in Las Vegas is to hang out at the LA Comedy Club.  We’ve been fans of the comedy club since it launched at Palace Stations.  It’s now located downtown at the Four Queens Casino.

Jay, the promoter for the show, has invited me to offer any local Las Vegan the opportunity to attend any show from Wednesday to Sunday FOR FREE**!!

Show times are Wed, Thur, and Fri at 8PM, and Sat at 7PM and 9PM.  This weekend features comedians Willie Farrell and Rick D’Ellia. 

There is no drink minimum.  No “catch”.  Jay is giving away these tickets to thank LV locals for making the LA Comedy Club the #1 comedy club in Las Vegas.

To get your free tickets, give Jay a call at 702.510.1611.  Tell him Scott from the Living in Las Vegas Podcast sent you!

 

** Free?  Well, there is a $4 “printing fee”.

Cirque25 The folks at Cirque du Soleil have a locals-only deal that’s pretty impressive.  Locals get a second ticket to Mystere, O, LOVE, KA, BeLIEve, or Zumanity for $25.  Considering tickets to some of these shows is well into the $100s, this is a great deal.

The offer expires on February 28, 2010.  Additionally, those to take advantage of this deal will also receive:

  • $25 gift certificate toward purchase of their next Cirque show
  • 20% off goodies at Las Vegas Cirque du Soleil boutiques

As a reminder, this is a LOCAL’S ONLY deal.  You must show proof of Nevada residency at the box office.  There are some other limitations (for example, “O” is only available for their 10:30 show and are very limited).

Saw this on the news last night. . .the YMCA of Southern Nevada is doing something very cool.  For those Las Vegans who have found themselves out of work, the YMCA is offering a complimentary six-month membership.

With the unemployment rate in Las Vegas at 13.4%, I’m sure there are a lot of folks who would appreciate this offer.

According to what I’ve read, the value of this offer is $470.  The YMCA would like those who accept the complimentary membership to make a tax-deductable donation or volunteer with the YMCA (although there is no obligation to do so).

Melissa and I were hanging out at Aliante Station last night and while having a drink at the MRKT sea & land bar, we learned that they offer 1/2 off their menu (not including lobster and surf and turf) from Sunday through Thursday for those folks with a “Boarding Pass”.

Seems like a pretty good deal to me!

We’re definitely going to take advantage of that some time this week.  And although our last experience at MRKT was mixed (we gave it a half and half on Hot and Horrible), the food, when it arrived, was pretty good.

Just heard that the New Year’s Eve celebration at the Fremont Street Experience will be free to local Las Vegans who have a valid Nevada ID and are at least 21 years old.  They are calling this year’s festivities “TributePalooza” as there will be a bunch of tribute bands playing throughout the evening:

  • Eagles
  • Kiss
  • Aerosmith
  • Billy Joel
  • David Bowie
  • Queen
  • Rolling Stones
  • U2

If it wasn’t for the fact that we will be hosting 15 or so kids at the Whitney Villa, I think we’d be heading down that way.  We spent a NYE at Fremont Street a couple years ago and had a very good time (saw Cheap Trick. . .which was the least impressive part of the evening).  They will also be unveiling a new Viva Vision video, “KISS Rocks Vegas”.

Here’s the Fremont Street Experience website for all the details: http://www.vegasexperience.com/  For those traveling from out of town, tickets are $20.
