My wife and I are going to Vegas next week and will be staying at The Hotel on the Mandaly Bay property. We have been to Vegas several times and go only for the entertainment, shows and food.
Here are some questions I would love to hear your info and views on:
There are two places that sell tickets for half price the day of the show near the MGM. Does anyone know which of the better shows are often available? Which shows are most worth seeing? We have seen Mystere, O, and some of the smaller venues. I was really dissappointed that Penn and Teller (I saw Penn on “While you are out” on the weekend. He said “Vegas is a place for gamblers who are really bad at math”) are not playing untill the day we leave. We are planning to see Mamma Mia and have coupons for $20 off per show which came direct from Mandalay.
Which are the highest quality buffets? I am looking for great food, not lots of it. The top 3 that I have seen on the internet seem to be Paris, Bellagio and Aladin. The one I can personally vouch for is the seafood buffet at Rio. Are there other restaurants on or near the strip that offer a better dining value? The Mexican restaurant at Mandalay is pricey for Mexican food, but is wonderful.
Thanks for the input!
