It's Vegas Baby

Dennis and I spent the last 4 days in Las Vegas on vacation. We haven't been on vacation alone since the cruise six years ago. We had an amazing time, here's a quick overview of the highlights.
We bought tickets to The Blue Man Group on our Allegiant flight. For $99 each, we got Blue seating (11 rows from the front, in the center) and a VIP meeting with a member of the Group in the VIP lounge. We figured there would be a bunch of people in there but it turned out to be just us and another couple. The "Blue Man" was very nice and answered all our questions and took pictures with us. It was strange to hear him talk because they are silence through the entire show.
We didn't rent a car so we took the Deuce (double decker bus), taxis and walked all over the strip. They are opening a Hard Rock Cafe on the strip in the fall but we took a shuttle over to check out this one. We also went to the House of Blues and ate at Dick's Last Resort (Dennis has been wanting to eat at one of those, forever.)
On the second day we saw our favorite show of the trip, The Beatles Love by Cirque du Soleil. It was so cool. The music was wonderful and I was in awe of the athleticism of the performers.

On the third day we saw three shows Mystere (the original Cirque du Soleil), The Price is Right, and Phantom (The Phantom of the Opera, Vegas style.) It was a very full 4 days, we don't know how to do it any other way.
