Liberace Museum In Vegas

Who says Vegas has no culture? We have the Liberace Museum with the rhinestone piano, outrageous outfits and candelabra. Good thing someone is preserving all this.

Liberace Museum Gift Shop

Liberace was the Elvis for the faint of heart and hard of hearing - he couldn't possibly knock up your daughter. The giant red rooster adorned his mansion, he pushed his own products - a tin of lemon mix from the 60s - and you can buy a set of Liberace cut out dolls and play with them all day.

Valentine's Weekend In Vegas

First, some luscious pastries at the Bellagio (The Jean-Philippe Patisserie - it was mobbed), followed by a visit to a strip club - no, that's the Flamingo casino, where they bump and grind while you play blackjack - and then you get married. A happy Vegas Valentine.

The Fountain At The Aria

The fountain at The Aria keeps changing shape and color, like being on LSD. You need never be bored while waiting for a cab.

Bums In Vegas

Actually, the guy in the middle is not a bum, he's a busker who plays the accordion beautifully.
