There's a large white tent located in front of Caesars Palace. From the outside it doesn't look like much, but don't be fooled. This humdrum structure is home to one of the wildest shows on the Las Vegas Strip. One step inside and you're transported to the Moulin Rouge. The walls are decorated with colorful stained-cut glass, mirrors and kitschy artifacts. In the center of the tent is a tiny stage with seating situated around it. It's the perfect setting for Absinthe, an adults-only, circus-style spectacular that combines old-world burlesque with specialty acts and outrageous comedy. You won't find much refinement here, but for guests who want a show that's daring, racy and over-the-top, you might just want to order a double when it comes to Absinthe."If you're offended by words like f*** or s*** you just might be at the wrong f***'in show," says Absinthe's host The Gazillionaire.Sporting an ill-fitting white tuxedo, dark slicked-down hair, gold shoes and an exaggerated version of his manhood, The Gazillionaire looks just as absurd as his personality. He's crass, provocative and wildly entertaining. He acts as ringmaster for the show, but don't expect him to introduce any clowns who do balloon art or lead a line of elephants on parade. The Gazillionaire's loyal assistant, Penny, co-hosts. Her quirky comments add a comical element to the show. When given the chance to perform solo, Penny decides to tell a tale about her sock puppets. The story quickly goes from average to R-rated, and the crowd erupts in laughter.The two hosts are joined by Absinthe's cast of eccentrics including: a buxom brunette branded "The Green Fairy" who sings and does a burlesque-style striptease; a team of tight-rope walkers do everything from sitting on a chair to using the Ab Roller while balancing above the crowd; a sexy man and woman aerialist team; a man and woman roller skating duo and various other artists who perform incredible feats of strength within mere feet of the crowd. Some of the acts are sensual while others amaze. Throughout the show The Gazillionaire and Penny joke around, creating non-stop comedy while the next act takes the stage.Absinthe the show is a lot like Absinthe the drink. Sure you can decide to indulge in your favorite cocktail or beer. You already know you like it, and its ending result is predictable. But, if you try Absinthe, you're bound to get a few surprises and experience something wild, zany and absolutely fun.-- By Caroline Fontein

Vegas with boys
PostedAugust 30, 2013
Two friends and I head to Vegas for a bachelor party. I wanted to see a show because of Vegas but really didn't want to see something that was mainstream. If I was going to spend that kind of money I wanted comedy, good looking girls, and perhaps some acrobats, but not a lot.
This show was unbelievable. Everything from the MC, to the seats, to the acts was sensational. The reviews are correct about the dark humor used and how people get picked on in the show. You find yourself saying, "did he really just say that!" Penny was absolutely awesome with her sock puppet show. I know sounds odd, but it is not what you think.
A great show for guys to go to. Funny, brash and absolutely amazing. This show anchored by planning for the weekend and was spot on. Good job everybody!

Location, location, location. If that's what you're looking for in a hotel, then Harrah's is for you.The hotel is pretty much dead center on the Las Vegas Strip. Walk across the street and see all the attractions at Caesars Palace and The Mirage. Head next door and you’ll be at The LINQ Promenade, which features shops, restaurants and The High Roller, the world’s largest observation wheel. (Hint: If you really like looking at the massive observation wheel, book one of the High Roller view rooms at Harrah's.)Convenience is also key at Harrah's. It’s home to a Las Vegas Monorail station, which means you can easily access all parts of the Strip, and it provides free shuttles to the nearby Rio hotel.With all of the fun going on at Harrah's, chances are you might not want to travel too far from the hotel though.Harrah's is home to Toby Keith's I Love This Bar and Grill, where you can find live country music and dancing to go along with your fried bologna sandwich.Do your best Billy Joel impersonation and sing along with the crowd at the Twins Dueling Pianos show at Piano Bar. Or take the mic yourself for TJ's Karaoke Party. Just be aware that what happens here might end up on You Tube.Head outside and follow the sounds of raucous partying to Carnaval Court where you'll find flair bartenders, live music and lots and lots of creative cocktails.When you work up an appetite, Harrah's has plenty of ways to satisfy it. KGB: Kerry's Gourmet Burgers features the culinary genius of celebrity chef Kerry Simon in a funky Russian atmosphere. That means not only do they have amazing burgers, they have vodka too. And don't even think about leaving without having a Captain Crunch milkshake.Want to impress your date? Take them to Ruth's Chris Steak House, which has unparalleled views of the Strip and signature cuts of USDA Prime steak, broiled in an 1,800-degree oven.The 24-hour Fulton Street Food Hall also offers a ton of options ranging from indulgent bakery-fresh pastries to homemade soups, artisanal sandwiches, made-to-order sushi and seven different types of pizzas.Entertainment is always on the menu at Harrah's as well. Since 2000, magician Mac King has been mystifying as well as cracking up audiences of all ages in the afternoons. If you'd prefer to be keeled over in laughter in the evenings, get tickets to see the Improv Comedy Club or Rita Rudner. And you can rock out to "Million Dollar Quartet," the hit Broadway musical about the night Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley performed together at Sun Records Studio.No Vegas resort would be complete without a casino and Harrah's has 87,000 square feet of gaming fun. You'll find video poker, slots, table games and more. Before you gamble, just be sure to find "The Greenbacks" and take a photo with them for good luck. Trust us, you can't miss the statue of gaudily-dressed tourists Winnie and Buck along with their dog Chip. They're dripping in all the cash they just won and hopefully you will be too.

Vegas with the Boys
PostedAugust 30, 2013
We came out to Harrah's the weekend August 22-24. We took a taxi from the airport and had an easy ride in. The location of the hotel comes up quick and if I was driving I could see how someone could miss it. Check-in was horrible. Absolutely horrible. We arrived at 10:30pm and was helped until 11:30pm with only two people processing people in. Not the fault of the service, but a manager could have come out and helped out. Room was in a nice location, I think it was Mardi Gras, easy to get to right near the elevator on the 9th floor. No noise from the elevator. Our room was clean and fair -we weren't expecting anything incredible. Our window view was the roof complex but this didn't matter we didn't pick this place for the view. Room has a strong presence of smoking. Not like someone was smoking in it recently, I got to guess it comes from the casino. Not overbearing but after the 2nd day and for the few hours we were in the room it was noticeable.
Check out was horrible, same ladies, same line, same everything. The casino was good, my friends had fun at the tables. Spa was excellent. They have a men's side and a women's side, so a guy can go into the locker room and sit in the sauna, or steam room, whirlpool. The room had a TV and soft chairs if you wanted to sweat out the liquids from the night before!
We didn't eat at the hotel, and but we did visit the little bar that served really big drinks. The cost was about 24 dollars each, but its about 3 drinks worth and was very good.
Overall, it was a good stay for the money, appropriately matched. Next time I think I will pay a bit more to get out of the smoke. We had a great time that didn't depend on the room itself.
