LAS VEGAS NEWS – of interest to tourists:

HOUDINI LIVES AGAIN – starring Dixie Dooley and featuring Houdini style magic kicked off with Mr. Dooley escaping a regulation straitjacket while suspended 80 feet above Fremont St. downtown. It was a impressive stunt, with the height alone providing plenty of tension. You can see a photo at http://www.lvrj.com/lvrj_home/1999/Oct-06-Wed-1999/news/12094102.html and we have 2-1 coupons to this great show (reviewed next week) in our contest section.

ESPN’S ESPY AWARD SHOW – is coming to Las Vegas after years in New York City. The show will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on February 14, 2000.

October is often thought of as a magical month with Halloween. With that in mind, we are reviewing three Las Vegas magic shows this month: The Illusionary Magic of Rick Thomas, Houdini Lives Again staring Dixie Dooley, and the Steve Wyrick Magic Show.

FEATURE STORY: THE ILLUSIONARY MAGIC OF RICK THOMAS

Because of the length of other sections of today’s newsletter, this review will be on the brief side, but I can sum it up in one word: GO! This guy is good, and he won’t be doing an afternoon show forever. Use the restroom ahead of time — you don’t want to miss one minute!
