Note: This is a repeat of the feature story from June 24, 1999. At the time, we only had a fraction of the readership now, and the question of whether to bring kids to Vegas continues to be a hot topic. In addition, last weekend I had the misfortune to see young children out on the Strip and downtown well past what anyone would consider to be a reasonable bedtime.

FEATURE STORY: Kids In Las Vegas

Bringing children to Las Vegas has long been an intense debate among both Las Vegas tourists and tourism professionals. In the early 90’s, casinos thought it would be a great idea to build theme parks and try to turn the town’s image from “sin city” to “family friendly.” Then they realized that they GOOFED. Mirage Resorts started instituting “no stroller” policies, and hotels like the Riviera and Tropicana started advertising slogans like “Rollers, Not Strollers.” The word got around that catering to families is stupid because they use the cheap rooms, eat the cheap food, and are too busy with the kids to gamble.

While we aren’t concerned about the casino’s bottom line (our income is derived from booking rooms and rental cars), every trip to the Strip or downtown — made often in this line of work — we see tourtured-looking parents with the mommy pushing the stroller and the daddy dragging along the 5 year old, neither of whom should have been subjected to miles of walking through this adult playground.

I’ve seen happier faces on gamblers who just lost 5 straight $100 hands at blackjack than on these parents faces, who undoubtedly have to be envious of all child-free tourist couples whom look like they are having the romantic vacation of a lifetime. And these kids that young won’t remember their first visit to Las Vegas.

If your children are old enough that you feel comfortable letting them run around an amusement park, checking in every few hours, then they will find plenty to do here. Just give them the cell phone, you keep that SkyTell pager, and have a great time. And if they are old enough to perhaps remember a supervised vacation and you can resist the temptation of parking them in the hallway or stuffing in the room while you take just one more pull or play just one more hand (let’s face it, winning seems to always happen when you don’t have the time to keep playing), then you might do fine.

But you will be happiest leaving them with the grandparents for the weekend and really enjoying your stay.

Next week, we return back to regular reviews, but the amount of very young children baking in the summer heat and the unhappy parents pushing them around that we have seen the past couple of weeks made us feel compelled to comment.

BARGAIN ROOM RATES – Aladdin for $64.95? Stardust for $19.95? No, it’s not 1990. These are the actual room rates available the week leading up to Christmas and other “off-peak” times. Limited availability so act now at

We share your feeling about the cost of cabs — I prefer to rent a car also. Let me clear up one point: Only the Strip itself is closed, and that closure doesn’t start until about 8-9 PM and it is open again by 3 AM. I usually don’t arrive down at the Strip for New Year’s Eve until 8 PM, and use back roads to get to parking garages like Paris or MGM (although that is pushing it). The LVCVA has the info you are looking for at http://www.vegasfreedom.com/play-12.asp

That’s a great point to remind people. Always ask security before filming in a casino. You might get away with a quick shot of your partner at a slot machine, but many casinos continue to frown on photography to protect the privacy of their clients.

LAS VEGAS NEWS – of interest to tourists:

EL RANCHO – The longtime vacated eyesore hotel on the upper Strip is gone! The implosion went smoothly. Full story at http://www.lvrj.com/lvrj_home/2000/Oct-04-Wed-2000/news/14532490.html and online video is archived at http://broadband.ibsys.com:8080/ramgen/2000/1003/97954.rm?usehostname&owner=natl&site=natl&app=page

VEGAS CLUBS – In light of a recent drug-overdose death, the temporary closing of C2K due to legal problems, and intense public scrutiny, Las Vegas clubs are under the microscope. They are going all-out to prove that they are safe places where drugs are frowned upon. Story at http://www.lvrj.com/lvrj_home/2000/Sep-24-Sun-2000/living/14274202.html

IN-ROOM COMPUTERS – As noted in our recent newsletter highlighting the Aladdin opening (archived at http://www.las-vegas-news-reviews.com/00-08-23.htm ), the Aladdin is in the process of placing computers in every room which will allow guests to surf the web with high-speed access. Other resorts are looking to follow suit, an acknowledgment that the internet is now getting as important to many of us as phone service.

If you are looking for a good free e-mail program so you can read your e-mail anywhere you can get online, we provide (and use) Vegas Mail at http://vegas.zzn.com The email program simple to use, but has filters and signatures for advanced users, as well as a calendar and “to do” list for all. Plus, it is a great way to let everyone know you love Las Vegas!

FEATURE STORY: Le Village Buffet

Le Village Buffet at the Paris Las Vegas hotel is a unique dining experience, both in atmosphere and food. Similar to Bellagio, it features an almost park-like setting nicely broken up as opposed to the typical “warehouse” feel of most buffets. Similar to both Bellagio and the new Aladdin buffet, it features a significant variety of top quality food, much of which is cooked and watched over by chefs at each dining station.

Because the food is so rich and unique, I’ve decided to list a sample dinner menu instead of doing a review. If you like the following fare, you’ll enjoy dining at Le Village Buffet and find it well worth the upscale price:

DINNER MENU:

SEAFOOD BOUIILABAISE
ROAST DUCKLING WITH GREEN OLIVES
VEGETABLE RATATOLJILLE NICOISE
CHICKEN FRICASSE WITH RIESL1NG WINE
SCALLOPED POTATOES
BRAISED HOMEMADE SAUSAGE
SALMON, GREEN CABBAGE AND BEURRE BLANC
ChAMPAGNE BRAISED SAUERKRAUT
VENISON STEW WITH GLAZED ONIONS
GRILLED PORK CHOPS WITH ONION MARMALADE
ROASTED PIT HAM AND BLACK CURRANT SAUCE
ROASTED RIB EVE AND BEAUJOLAIS SAUCE

BEEF BOIJRGOUIGNON
SHRIMP SALAD
MONTE CARL0 SALAD
SAUTEED SHRIMP WITH SHALLOTS
STEAMED MUSSELS POULETTE
DOVER SOLE WITH ROCK SHRIMP
SPINACH AU GRATIIN
SAUTEED TUNA TOITRNEDOS AND CREAMY LEEKS

FRESH PREPARED CREPES
SMOKED SALMON, SMOKED TUNA AND SMOKED SADLE
FRENCH ONION SOUP
WILD MUSHROOM BISQUE
KING CRAB LEGS

ASSORTED BRIE AND GRUYERE CHEESE
FRIPLE CHOCOLATE TERRINE
BISCUIT DE SAVOIE WITH VANILLA SAUCE
OPERA CAKE

Le Village Buffet is located in Paris Las Vegas and open for breakfast ($10.95), lunch ($14.95), and dinner ($23.50). Reservations are not accepted, but instead of making you wait in a long line, when they are busy they assign you a time window (15 minutes long, i.e., 8:30 – 8:45 PM) in which to return and dine. Go an hour or more in advance of the time you wish to dine to secure your spot on the list.

Thanks for the kind words! I encourage reader feedback and comments at [email protected] whether good or bad, because I’m wasting my time if I’m not meeting the needs of you readers. If I had a dollar for every piece of misinformation I’ve ever overheard Vegas tourists telling each other, I could have retired long ago. This newsletter was created so that won’t happen to you!

You ARE being marketed to, BUT we are trying to be gentle. I don’t like the “hard sell” and I like getting the best deal, which is why I was very careful in teaming up with Hotel Reservations Network for rooms ( http://www.accessvegas.com/las-vegas-discounts.htm ) and TravelNow for rental cars ( http://www.travelnow.com/cars/search.jsp?cid=2005 ). Both let you enter the dates of travel and then display all the prices so you can compare and save. In addition, Hotel Reservations Network has extended the $25 rebate (which is on top of their guaranteed low rates) indefinitely, letting you save even more!

Unlike many Vegas publications which depend on direct casino advertising, we get our standard booking commission no matter which hotel or car agency you choose. No favorites, no BS. If something stinks, it stinks and we are going to mention it and save you the trouble!

I do have a small favor to ask of all readers: If you enjoy any part of this newsletter on a regular basis and you aren’t booking with us, go check the rates the way you usually book for your next trip and then give us a try at the links mentioned at the top of every newsletter.

If we aren’t the low rate that time around, by all means book elsewhere. But if we meet or beat your other source, please consider showing your support by giving us a try. People book tens of thousands of room/nights each year through us because of the one click compare, low prices, secure servers, and instant confirmation. There is no cost or obligation and you are completely anonymous until when and if you decide to book. Thanks in advance!

Rental Cars – Don’t pay top dollar! Enter the dates of your visit and compare prices from virtually every major rental car agency (most US cities). Book the lowest price company or your regular agency. Save the hassle and some money – Car Rental Savings Search. Few regret renting a car. Free shuttles and city bus rides can be slow and smelly. Taxis can cost what a rental car costs. Your vacation time is valuable — make the most out of it!


ONLINE POLL – “How interested are you in riding the monorail when it is completed?” Let’s hear your opinions at http://www.accessvegas.com — results will be published next week!

WEATHERBUG – Las Vegas Trip! When you download and register your free WeatherBug program by October 15, 2000, you receive an automatic entry to win a trip for two to the Las Vegas, Nevada! Share it with YOUR friends and increase your odds of winning. Every “Share the Bug” invitation you send to a friend, gives you another automatic entry into the contest.

Hello from Portland, OR. Long time readers know that I enjoy escaping the neon and visiting my family a few times a year. I spent the weekend with them on the beautiful Oregon Coast.

IMPLOSION TIME! – That longtime eyesore The El Rancho (north end of the Strip) is getting imploded at 2:30 AM on Oct. 3. This appears to be the last implosion for a long time, so it might be worth the extra Vegas trip. Like you need an excuse to come see us anyway!

SUPER BOWL SUNDAY – New Years Eve may make the news, but Super Bowl Sunday lights up this town like no other weekend. 200,000-plus crazed football fans flood the gambling mecca here to place every kind of bet available (and there are some strange ones) even if their favorite team never made the playoffs. Full story at http://www.dallasnews.com/travel/lasvegas/57749_superbowl.html and you can still grab reasonable rooms ($45 downtown, $55 Strip) for Super Bowl Sunday Las Vegas at http://www.hoteldiscounts.com/cgi-bin/pickinput?SID=IVC&LKF=IVC&us_city=LAS

COMDEX – Speaking of getting a room before you have to offer your first-born in exchange, you can still get rooms downtown for as low as $40 a night (El Cortez) or $100 on the Strip (Sahara) but you better beat the rest of the crowd to http://www.hoteldiscounts.com/cgi-bin/pickinput?SID=IVC&LKF=IVC&us_city=LAS

MGM THEME PARK – Our promised review of it this summer never materialized because it is becoming a shell of its former self as the MGM uses the property for other purposes. There is now sincere talk of shutting down the park for good because of the value of the land it sits on. Full story at http://news.excite.com/news/r/000907/15/leisure-mgmgrand

VEGAS RADIO / TV ONLINE – A recent post to http://www.egroups.com/group/Vegas asked about online media availability.

RAT RACE – I flew out of McCarran Wednesday afternoon on my way up here to the Pacific Northwest and had to detour to get to the Delta counter. Why? Because the feature film Rat Race starring Whoopi Goldberg and Cuba Gooding Jr. was shooting at the adjacent ticket counter.

FEATURE STORY: Splash

Splash has been occupying the somewhat intimate showroom of the Riviera since 1985, revamping itself every few years to keep with the times. The only problem is that the era it is trying to keep with is 1980-something. Unlike the full-on traditional Las Vegas shows like Jubilee and Folies Bergere, Splash is more of what you would expect in a traveling or Indian casino show making itself out to be a “Vegas Style” show.

It all started in true Vegas fashion, with singers and dancers and topless showgirls in feather headdresses making decent use of the limited state space. We were then introduced to “world champion” skaters Irina Grigorian and Kikhail Panin. In the past, Splash was centered on a huge aquatic tank (hence, the name Splash), but now these fine skaters are much the centerpiece, performing on a very sized ice rink in the middle of the stage. Photo link: http://www.lvrj.com/lvrj_home/2000/Jan-07-Fri-2000/photos/lifestyle.jpg

They do the best they can under the circumstances, and put on a number of strong performances throughout the show. The couple performs many of the acrobatic and strength ice stunts you see on televised skating including impressive acrobatic stunts. In one of their later acts, they engage in some eye-opening firestick tossing and juggling, and Irina performs a hula-hoop act that has to been seen to be believed.

If it’s Vegas, you have to have a couple of comedians, and Splash gives us Los Latin Cowboys. They came out pounding on huge drums, and then proceeded to show their skill with bolo balls, which lead to picking on male member of the audience (there with his wife) with gay-tinged jokes about “balls.” Fortunately, once they quit the jokes, they put on quite a display of bolo and tap.

The middle of the show lagged with 4 scenes featuring impersonators: Madonna, Michael Jackson, Cher, and John Travolta. Each featured the impersonator “singing” or dancing to a real video of the actual song shown on big video screens at either side of the stage. While the actual entertainer was surrounded by dancers and a simple set, I found myself spending more time watching the screens, and you can do that at home.

Splash featured other specialty and novelty acts, such as a talented contortionist and a tap-dance duo consisting of one live human and a laser computer-generated showman. Each specialty segment was interesting, but often went on long past where the novelty had worn off. Each performer was talented in their own right, but that didn’t bring the show together in any cohesive way.

The night was concluded with the Thunderdome, a “Globe of Death” featuring four motorcyclist who ride at the same time, spinning around the inside of an eighteen foot steel ball. Pretty impressive, and certainly one of the highlights. It was also one of the few acts where the host wasn’t imploring the audience to step up the applause.

I probably took twice as many notes at Splash as I usually do. Was it that good of a show? No, I was that bored. This could be a solid, riveting show, with the 95 minutes comfortably trimmed to a fast-paced hour-plus (and the price dropped $10) by dropping the lame impersonator scenes. They don’t do justice to the impersonators, and if we are looking for that style of entertainment, we can go see Legends in Concert (Imperial Palace) or American Superstars (Stratosphere).

If you are going to spend real money to see a real 90 minute Las Vegas show, go see Jubilee at Ballys or Folies Bergere at The Tropicana. I’d give Folies a very slight edge, but both are worth your time. My reviews of each are at:

Folies Bergere – http://las-vegas-news-reviews.com/00-03-29.htm
Jubilee – http://las-vegas-news-reviews.com/00-07-26.htm

The exception? If the wife has been bugging you to go to one of those touring “Olympic Skaters On Ice” shows (over your dead body), but is reluctant to go to a somewhat risque Las Vegas show, this is a good compromise. She gets her romantic figure skating and you get your traditional topless Vegas showgirls.

Splash plays every night at 7:30 and 10:30 PM at The Riviera. Tickets are $46.75 and $57.75 including tax. More info and advance ticket purchase is available at http://www.vegasguide.com/detail_shows.cfm?ID=34&amid=143&cscheme=5

FEATURE STORY: Fielding West, Comedy Magic

Fielding West doesn’t have any tigers or lasers. He’s also not charging $100 a ticket! If you are the budget Las Vegas visitor, you can’t go wrong with this downtown evening show. For the price of one $5.95 drink, you get to enjoy a pretty funny blend of comedy and magic.

He doesn’t levitate a car, but he does crush a live bird with his bare hands! (The bird lives.) He doesn’t have a line of dancing girls, but he does have an attractive assistant who ends up in her undies in a “trick gone awry”. He also mixes somewhat close-up magic with a good dose of humor as well as doing a bit of painful looking fire breathing (all with a smile on his face).

The hour-long show still leaves you plenty of time to catch the light shows and other fun of downtown. None of the humor is disgusting, but a little raunchy. Leave the preteens at home. Buy your ticket at the cage, and enter early for best seats. There aren’t many bad seats in that showroom, but they are first come, first served (no maitre d’). Fielding West: Hocus Pocus plays Sun. – Thurs. evenings at 8:00 PM downtown at The Lady Luck.

I’ve heard good things about Legends. I see it in about 3 weeks. “O” is the hardest ticket in town. About the only way to “beat the system” is to book through a ticket agency like BookVegas at http://www.showvegas.com/svpricing.cfm?amid=143&cscheme=1 I just did a random check for Nov. 15-17, and they still have balcony seats available. Bottom line: use an online service and book entirely as far ahead as possible for “O.”

SPAS AND SALONS – Thanks to all of the readers who weighed in on the various spas and salons they have used while here in Las Vegas. Julia from Frankfurt, Germany wrote about the SPA at Luxor: “It costs around USD $100, but it depends what kind of treatment you are going to choose. Afterwards I went to the Kristina’s Beauty Shop, where I got a manicure and my hair done.” Sam Profio wrote: “I bought my wife a $200 package at Venetian’s spa which is Canyon Ranch (national chain). It included a variety of skin and body treatments and massages, lunch, and general use of the facilities which are considerable. It is a beautiful place with a great reputation nationwide.”

A reader names Lauren wrote: “I have lived here for four years now and the best salon is DIVA. They are located off the strip off Industrial Road but near the Rio. The prices are great compared to strip salons and they have a full spa with massage, waxing, facials, etc. Their number is (702) 736-2011 or website http://www.divastudio.com ” Nichole Garza wrote: “Bellagio without a doubt has the best spa. And decent prices. They treat you like a queen.” Margo from Michigan wrote: “You will get an excellent hairdo and at a cheap rate. It’s strictly a locals salon located in a small strip mall on the corner of Valley View and Charleston. Alana’s Hair Salon 702-870-8470 ask for Alana. Tell her Margo from Michigan sent you.”

HORSE RACING – Linda Sauntmon wrote: “My husband spends 75% of his time on every trip to Vegas playing the horses. In his opinion, Caesar’s Palace has the best sportsbook, followed
by the Hilton.”
