Ed­i­tor’s Note


WhereTraveler Las Vegas - - Contents -

Two amaz­ing new shows and a com­edy venue from Las Ve­gas na­tive Jimmy Kim­mel has us look­ing at the show busi­ness. If there’s a city known for spec­tac­u­lar shows it’s Ve­gas, so dive into the fea­ture It’s Show­time, to learn more about what’s new, the best of the long-run­ning shows, the per­fect re­vues and more.

If you’re look­ing for ex­cite­ment that doesn’t in­volve travers­ing the en­tire Strip, fi nd it in One Block, where we’ve packed the top things to do, see and ex­pe­ri­ence at Mi­rage and Trea­sure Is­land.

It’s last call to catch Def Lep­pard’s res­i­dency at Zap­pos Theater in Planet Hol­ly­wood, which ends Sept. 7. It is also a chance to see drum­mer Rick Allen’s paint­ings of mu­sic leg­ends (pic­tured: Leg­end Se­ries—Jimi Hen­drix), his drum se­ries and other orig­i­nal work, on dis­play at the bal­cony in­side the venue dur­ing shows and for sale in the Zap­pos store.

Crav­ing more orig­i­nal­ity? Har­vest Fes­ti­val (har­vest fes­ti­val.com) ticks that box. From Sept 6-8, World Mar­ket Cen­ter will be a haven for hand­made arts and crafts, com­plete with live mu­sic, demos, food and fam­ily-friendly vibes.

NASCAR comes to town Sept. 13-15, but race week­end gath­ers steam start­ing Sept. 12 with the in­au­gu­ral Bren­dan Gaughan Celebrity Bowl­ing Clas­sic. The char­ity event (www.speed­way­char­i­ties.org) is open to any­one who wants to bowl and each team will have a celebrity bowler—maybe even a NASCAR driver. How’s that for show busi­ness!
