Las Vegas Baby!

Last month, a couple of the team at Gandey World Class Productions spent a week in Vegas and what a week it was!



We stayed at the New York New York Resort hotel on the strip, the week was non-stop. Starting off with a trip to the canyon and walk on the sky-bridge, this was an amazing breathtaking experience, the canyon leaving them speechless due to the enormity of this natural phenomenon.



When in Vegas you must try and get to see a show, we chose La Reve at The Wynn and Absinthe at Caesars Palace.
La Reve is one of the most beautiful, amazing productions I have experience, directed and produced by Franco Dragone, the sheer athleticism of the artistes leave you in awe and the props and production of this show is magical, this is just a “dream” of a show.

Absinthe – this is the spiegeltent show in front of Caesars Palace, a very stripped back kind of a show for Vegas, no trickery, just down to the quality of the artistes and the MC, I’m pleased this show is doing well and have just been granted another year at Caesars, it’s great to see a “European” style show doing so well in Vegas.

This was my favourite act in the show, performed by two very
sexy and talented aerialists
The mouth watering buffet at the Bellagio  - I thought I’d died and gone to heaven! Two beautiful hours spent tasting the most amazing and varied selection of food I have seen under one roof”, The prime rib of beef just melted in your mouth – this buffet is highly recommended but try and beat the queses and get there for the beginning of a session.
Lastly Vegas wouldn’t be Vegas without casinos, most of the hotels have them and they are HUGE, most of the hotel run classes in the mornings for the various table games, we chose the Craps class, as interesting as it was, I did leave feeling more confused than when I started and a month on, would struggle to remember most of it...but it wouldn’t stop me placing the odd chip here or there ;)
We left Vegas a bit weary and tired, but definitely returning soon, for now back to the UK to finish off the last two venues for the Ladyboys of Bangkok.
