Even if you get covered in popcorn, you won't want to stop the clown from posing as an usher and engaging in some pre-show debauchery with the crowd. With his black suit and disheveled gray hair, he has no problem amusing people. The clown is zany, mischievous and your first exposure to the unknown at Mystère by Cirque du Soleil at Treasure Island. What's ahead is a wondrous world of mystifying creatures who perform a series of incredible acrobatic and gymnastic feats.When Mystère opened in 1993, the show was the first Cirque du Soleil production in Vegas. Emphasizing awe-inspiring athleticism and imaginative imagery, it embraces all of the signature Cirque du Soleil elements that have made the production company a mainstay on the Las Vegas Strip.From rebirth to the pursuit of happiness, each of the characters and acts in Mystère symbolizes something different. They combine to create an overall theme for the show as a celebration of the circle of life. Some audience members may interpret each act as an allegory, but with the innovative costumes and performances, realizing those themes isn't necessary for enjoying this show.What makes Mystère so endearing is that many of the performances are typical circus-style acts like the flying trapeze, an aerialist and the teeterboard, an acrobatic tool where a person jumps on one end of what looks like a seesaw and the person on the other end is launched into the air. However, in Mystère, the boundaries of those disciplines are pushed, creating fantastical routines that you won't see in any other production.For instance, in the hand-to-hand routine, two muscular men demonstrate a series of gravity-defying poses and their incredible strength, but they don't even perform on a flat surface. In Mystère, the men do this while balancing on a rotating dome, adding to the awesomeness of their routine.The Tissu act is another example. In this routine a female aerialist performs while suspending herself with two pieces of fabric hanging from the ceiling. This type of act can be seen in other shows on the Strip, but in Mystère the performer combines contortion, acrobatics and movement in her routine, creating optical illusions that defy imagination.Music played by live musicians and singers drives the show. Mixing elements of everything from rock to Celtic, African and soul music, the soundtrack is just as mysterious as the action on stage.Along with awe-inspiring moments, Mystère offers a hearty does of comedy brought on by the clown "usher" and an adult-sized baby. They appear on stage throughout the show. The clown and baby don’t tell jokes, but their wacky antics and interactions with the audience make people laugh. It's hard not to chuckle when you see a man on stage wearing a diaper and a bonnet.When the comedy segments come to a close, the show quickly changes pace. Once again the audience is sitting in amazement at another thrilling routine. One of these is the Chinese Poles. For this act a group of gymnasts perform on four vertical poles. They crawl, jump and flip up, down and across the poles. Their masks add to the implausibility of their performance. While their bodies face away from the audience, their masks are looking right at them. It seems impossible, but then again, this is Mystère.-- By Caroline Fontein

Don't expect to see a lot of pirates at Treasure Island. Arrr...we know...the name of the hotel suggests exactly the opposite. But somehow, as the years have gone by, Treasure Island (often referred to as just "the TI") has shed its "Ahoy, matey!" attitude in favor of a more contemporary, adult-oriented outlook.Now that's not to say you won't see things at Treasure Island that bring to mind the world of buccaneers and buried gold. The architecture and exterior of this place -- which includes a beautiful manmade cove, a boardwalk built from wooden planks and a couple of ships that look like they've sailed the high seas -- definitely suggests you're in for a swashbuckling good time.However, even though the pirate theme has been toned down, there are many other good reasons why you should stay here. You don't need a treasure map to tell you that Treasure Island has got an amazing location. And you won't need a car or a taxi to get around...just a pair of sprightly feet. Situated near the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, Treasure Island is connected via a free tram to The Mirage, and it's within walking distance of a handful of must-visit resorts (Wynn Las Vegas, Encore, The Venetian, The Palazzo and Caesars Palace) and four must-shop attractions (the Fashion Show mall, the Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian | The Palazzo, The Forum Shops at Caesars and The LINQ Promenade).Treasure Island also boasts really nice rooms. (No hammocks here!) So you'll enjoy fairly luxurious accommodations -- contemporary décor with all the necessary modern amenities -- for a reasonable price (not the cheapest in town but not the most expensive either). And if you splurge on a suite...well, you'll feel like you've plundered the place.Warm weather days at Treasure Island are devoted to sun, swaying palm trees and island foods. Relax on the beach-like pool deck (complete with a 25-person hot tub) and while away a few hours in Kahunaville Tropical Restaurant. You can have a bite of something exotic, like the Fiery Rock Shrimp, or get a drink prepared by a flair bartender at the "Party Bar." There's even a luau-style dinner show called "Island Heat LuWOW."The hub of the activity at the resort occurs near the entrance from Las Vegas Boulevard, where you'll discover several rollicking bars and restaurants. Things get wild and crazy in Gilley's Saloon, Dance Hall & Bar-B-Q. You can drink beer, watch bikini bull riding contests, listen to live bands and line dance. The restaurant specializes in barbecuing (including three different kinds of mouth-watering ribs) and has windows that look out onto the Strip.Señor Frog's is infamous for its party scene in Mexico (and, of course, now at Treasure Island). Along with great south-of-the-border food, it has a spring break-style vibe. Antics such as shots being poured into your mouth, sitting on "butt" stools or dancing on tabletops are highly encouraged...and there are two outside areas in case you just want to chill out.For one heck of a good show, get tickets to "Mystère." It's the longest running permanent Cirque du Soleil production in Las Vegas. Packed with over-the-top props and daring feats of human strength and agility, "Mystère" will blow you away.Need a quick bite? Grab slices of pizza at Pizzeria Francesco's and delicious hot dogs at Little Richie's Chicago-Style Beef and Dogs. For heartier meals in a casual setting, The Coffee Shop and The Buffet at TI are two wonderful options for breakfast, lunch or dinner.In addition, you can sit down to a fine, slower-paced meal at Phil's Italian Steak House. Prime cuts of meat (think filet mignon, venison tenderloin, Colorado lamb and chateaubriand) as well as classic Italian specialties are created in its Tuscan wood-fired kitchen. And you'll always find a fresh catch prepared to perfection at the Seafood Shack.A sanctuary for the senses, Oleksandra Spa & Salon offers peace and profound relaxation. Perched on the third floor, you can partake of soothing and revitalizing treatments from around the world -- like Swedish, ayurvedic and Lomi Lomi massages.And if you decide you want to avoid the crowds in the major malls, you can shop up a storm right at Treasure Island. Get everything from jewelry at TI Bling Co. and Bijoux Terner to fragrances at Perfrume Eleven and souvenirs at the Lobby Store and TI Gift Shop. Plus, construction is underway on a new three-story retail center at the northeast corner of the property. It will be anchored by CVS and is scheduled to open in April 2015.So, without being too cliché, the pirate days of yore may have been tossed o'erboard at Treasure Island, but that doesn't matter...because you don't need cannons here to have a blast here.
