Dh and I are going to Vegas this New Years. It's my birthday. One of the curses of being a holiday baby is that no matter where I go I can expect to pay premium prices. Oh well. Anyway, can you still do the helicopter tours and or hoover damn tours during the holidays? We will be there 12/29- 1/2. We're staying at the Monte Carlo which I understand is pretty centrally located. Is this correct? Any restaurant recommendations? We have tickets for Cirqu du Soliel (sp) Ka on the 29. Also going to see Sinbad the Comedian on the night of the first. I left New Years eve open to wander around. Any other suggestions? How hard is it to get tickets for shows, the day of? I have one night the 30th open and I thought about seeing the Phantom show but figured I wait until I got there to see how I felt, don't want to pack too much into a short trip (LOL) Can you get tickets the day of?
