You can't visit Las Vegas without going to see some shows, and we saw two. One was terrible (and expensive) and the other hilarious and worth every minute.
I enjoy the Beatles, and I love Cirque du Soleil, pair those two together and it sounds like an excellent show. But dear Cirque de Soleil, where was the actual Cirque de Soleil part? The acrobatics were lackluster, the storyline hard to follow, and all I saw on the stage were people dancing to the Beatles, which I'm sure is fun to be involved in, but as an audience member I almost fell asleep. It was underwhelming to say the least. The best part about the show was the use of the modulated stage.
The best part about Vegas was a restaurant, called Capo's, we found off the strip in this random strip mall. In this nondescript, and boarded up building we found the most delicious Italian restaurant. Mob style is what I guess you would call it. When we arrived, we seriously thought we were in the wrong place, until we spotted the entrance sign. Once you get inside, there is a sign asking you to ring the bell on the door. To our surprise, one of the pictures on the wall opens up and this tough Italian guy's face is asking us what we're doing here. Once we responded, he asked for the password. The entrance to the restaurant wasn't the red door we had rung the doorbell on, it was the phone box which swung open on our left. One we got through all the formalities of the entrance, we entered into this wonderland of red leather booths, chandeliers, and live piano music. The walls were covered in mob pictures and mirrors, and the chandelier covered ceilings gave the room a very romantic, world away feel. I attempted taking a picture but the lighting was too low. Not only was the restaurant entrance fun and entertaining, the food and drinks were delicious. To top the night off, we saw the musical "The Book of Mormons", which I've seen once before, but will see any time I have the chance.
