As previously Twittered, I’m going to visit Las Vegas on the weekend of the 27th. I have a ticket to see Blue Man Group at the Venetian. I’m in the poncho section, so it sounds like my seat will be pretty close to the action. This will be my third Blue Man show (I’ve been to New York and one of their traveling shows), and I’m really looking forward to it. I already know I like Blue Man, and based on other Vegas shows I’ve seen (Mystère and KÀ), it will probably be the best yet.
I’m mostly going to Vegas for the show, practicing my “do what you want” advice. I wanted to see the show, so I bought a ticket, even though I didn’t take the time to coordinate the trip with others. It will be a short trip (arrive in the afternoon, show at 7, leave at noon the next day), so the only other attraction I’m planning on seeing is the Bellagio fountain, which I have missed on my two other trips to Vegas. I really like fountains, so I’m actually just as excited about the free fountain show as I am about Blue Man.
After hitting up the fountain at the Bellagio, I’ll probably just walk into the lobbies of the various hotels/casinos until I get bored or run out of money. If you have any other suggestions for things to check out in Vegas (on the Strip so I can walk, and preferably free), let me know in the comments.
