Understanding the opposite sex may never be easy, but "Defending the Caveman" breaks it all down for you. This hilarious one-man comedy, created by comedian/writer Rob Becker, attempts to debunk the age old myth that men are all jerks."Defending the Caveman" is the longest-running solo play in Broadway history. It has been seen in 45 different countries and translated into 30 different languages. The one-man show features Kevin Burke as the hilarious and all-too-relatable Caveman."Instead of looking at men as a**holes, why don't we just look at them as having a different culture?" asks Burke at the beginning of the show. Then he starts to explain how many of the same characteristics that were conveyed by cavemen are still very apparent in modern day behaviors of men and women and that understanding this is the key to also understanding the opposite sex.Prehistoric-looking props and lighting and sound techniques are used to enhance the performance. The Caveman's casual stage presence and typical jeans and T-shirt ensemble give him the everyman look that all guys can relate to. Women like to shop because they are innate gatherers, Burke explained. Cavewomen were in charge of gathering food and knowing what colors to look for as an indication that certain things were ripe and ready for the picking. This same concept explains why women like to shop and gather more clothes when the seasons change, even if their closet is already full... obviously.As the Caveman shares more instances from his life, couples in the audience laugh and nudge each other, acknowledging that they relate to his experiences. Single people in the audience find the show equally amusing and also enlightening on how to better interpret the opposite sex on their next date. The show's typical audience includes everyone from young people visiting for a wild weekend to people celebrating bachelorette parties, anniversaries or just a good time in Vegas.While scripted, the Caveman refers to the audience for inspiration and improvised dialogue making each show uniquely hilarious for an unforgettable night of laughs and epiphanies.

You could argue about which is the largest hotel in Vegas -- but in our minds, MGM Grand sure feels like it.This resort, which sits near the south end of the Las Vegas Strip at the busy intersection of Las Vegas Boulevard and Tropicana Avenue, is so big it's like a small city. When you check in, you'll want to ask for a map so you can find your way around. It's that ginormous!Here's a number to further illustrate our point: 6,852. That's how many rooms there are at MGM Grand and its collection of related properties -- The Mansion, Skylofts and The Signature.MGM Grand is easy to identify thanks to the huge gold-colored statue of a lion that watches over the front entrance. Towering 45 feet and weighing 100,000 pounds, it sits on top of a pedestal that's framed by LED screens and fountains.Packing a powerful entertainment lineup, you'll have a roaring good time at MGM Grand. The Grand Garden Arena hosts concerts (see everyone from major recording artists like Justin Timberlake and Lady Gaga to legends such as Andrea Bocelli, Bette Midler and Barry Manilow), championship boxing and UFC matches, award shows and much more.MGM Grand is also home to the Cirque du Soleil production "KÀ." With some of the most sophisticated stage mechanics imaginable (say these two words with us now: "vertical stage"), this show is a visual wonder. It's comprised of acrobatic feats, martial arts and other cool tricks that we guarantee will amaze you. Plus, the plot about twins being separated by adversity and then finding their way to back to each other is pretty moving too.And Brad Garrett's Comedy Club features a rotating lineup of comedians (that often includes Garrett himself) who will have you doubled over in fits of laughter.In addition, MGM Grand is a partier's dream. Nightclubs and bars are tucked away in almost every corner of the resort. So let's get right down to it, shall we?Just inside the resort's front entrance is where you'll find a line forming to go into the hottest spot in town -- Hakkasan Las Vegas. Seriously, while other clubs claim to sizzle, they really fizzle in comparison to this one. Hordes of club goers come to Hakkasan, where they burn up the main dance floor while listening to the biggest DJs on the EDM scene.Among the places to drink, check out MGM Grand's Lobby Bar and center bar, called Centrifuge, as well as West Wing Bar and Whiskey Down. Tap Sports Bar has more than 48 draft beers -- plus, you can peruse sports memorabilia and watch games on 60-inch HD TVs.Eating at MGM Grand is like nowhere else, again because of its enormous size. There is literally something for every taste here.Devour what's considered the finest food in the world at Joël Robuchon. This is the namesake restaurant of the legendary chef who has received numerous awards (including enough stars to light the sky at night). His French cuisine creations are truly works of art. Next door, L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon offers a similarly divine menu, but in a slightly less formal atmosphere.At Craftsteak, Tom Colicchio has the preparation of steaks, chops and seafood down to a science. Michael Mina Pub 1842 provides a distinctive take on classic pub fare. You can savor in the richness of Creole cuisine at Emeril's New Orleans Fish House. Another imaginative menu -- with items like wood-fired pizza as well as pasta and grilled fish -- is available in Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill. Crush has a cool cosmopolitan shared-plate atmosphere. And then there's The Grand Wok and Sushi Bar, Fiamma Trattoria & Bar, Shibuya...and the list of fabulous, gourmet-caliber restaurants goes on and on.Casual meals are available at MGM Grand too. Hecho en Vegas prepares traditional Sonoran cuisine. If you're extremely hungry, head to the MGM Grand Buffet, which dishes up more than 30 different entrées, pastas, casseroles and fresh veggies. Quick bites are available at the MGM Grand Food Court, Avenue Café and Project Pie. Or grab a decadent treat at Blizz Frozen Yogurt & Desserts, Corner Cakes and the Sugar Factory retail store.For fun in sun, there's the Grand Pool Complex. Along with five swimming pools and waterfalls, you'll love the 1,000-foot-long lazy river. And summertime always brings steamy temptation courtesy of Wet Republic. This chic pool club is the daytime alter ego of Hakkasan.Want to bring out your best self in Vegas? Stop by the Grand Spa and Cristophe Salon for a bit of pampering. If you love the TV show "CSI," don't miss CSI: The Experience. It lets you jump into the role of a crime scene investigator and piece together evidence in order to solve one of three mysteries.We could continue describing even more amenities at MGM Grand...like the race and sports book or all the great places to shop. But, well, what's the point? This resort has everything and then some. You just need to come and stay here for yourself. Soon.

It was a nice hotel. BIG
PostedAugust 23, 2013
Our only complaint was when we checked in on Tuesday, the lines were very very long and there were only about 4 specialists checking people in. We actually called three times before the FINALLY sent more people out to do check-ins. We were nicely compensated for the complaint though, so that helped a lot. Shouldn't have happened though. Other than that, the hotel is very nice. We LOVED the Lazy River!!!

It’s definitely getting hot in here and the performers are definitely taking off all their clothes. Exploring the very sexy and very un-family-friendly side of Cirque du Soleil, Zumanity whips - er - whisks audience members up for a deliciously wild ride to discover their sensual side. Oh la, la! Have we roused your, um, attention? If we haven’t, the two voluptuous Botero Sisters passing out plump strawberries at the beginning of the show will.Unlike other Cirque du Soleil productions, Zumanity has no storyline. Instead, this highly eroticized, cabaret-style spectacle offers a bunch of unique characters whose performances are each themed by different elements of sexuality. Oh, and there is no traditional Cirque gibberish either unless you count some moans and groans as such.You’ll learn very practical life lessons, like how to stash booze in your boobs and getting comfortable with hilariously taboo sex topics. Between the leather, chains, silks and well, some things we just can’t share, you can bet a little laughter is welcomed. With nearly nude aerial artists, contortionists, super limber dancers and the sassiest drag queen host of them all, forget being conservative. Let your hair down, loosen one extra button, and get your naughty on for some sexy entertainment that just may be a precursor for the remainder of your evening.
