Soup's on...
The Fiesta Hotel and Casino’s GARDUNO’S authentic Mexican restaurant, one of Las Vegas’ best Mexican restaurants has upped the ante with a couple new chips (and salsa:) Killer pastas on the menu and a Thursday Happy Hour on the patio.
I had a “red-chile Chipotle Fettuccine with chicken” dish which was beyond outstanding. This is a perfect blending of the Hispanic and Italian cuisines: chicken strips floating among strands of fettuccine noodles in a rich (Alfredo-like) red-chile, Chipotle cream sauce (about $10.00, salad included.)…On Thursdays, the Happy Hour party (5-9 pm) is about $1.00 Margaritas, other drink specials, $2.00 soft tacos and more, live music and more…FIRST DRINK FREE WITH AMIGO CARD (Margarita, draft beer or well drink only.)
Years ago, the Fiesta (THE ROYAL FLUSH CAPITAL OF THE WORLD) was an innovator (up-scale Mexican restaurant in Las Vegas.) It seems as though they’ve done it again with Cabo San Lucas style outdoor parties…

MOONLIGHT MANSION SLOT from ATRONICS and USED CARS by IGT

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

Moonlight Mansion , from Atronics International, is a new HI RES slot with clean, interesting graphics, a great premise and very interesting and profitable (potentially monster) bonus rounds…I found it at the tiny WILDFIRE CASINO on Rancho Drive…Play up to 21 lines at: $.01, .02, .03, .05 and .10 – up to $2.10 max. bet…Cat-eyes, full moons, bats, several ghosts, candlesticks, spiders and the Moonlight Mansions are on the reels. Three Moolight Mansion symbols trigger the bonus where you choose between four rooms. Each room has a number of hiding places where the loot is stashed. Depending on your choices, the bonus can go on for several minutes. Again the graphics here are superlative. If you like a bit more substance to a slot, this may be for you; it definitely is for me…This machine has buttons on either side that control the vertical motion of the playing board; it slides up and down to adjust to your height…
May 1, 2007…Did I MAKE A HASTY JUDGEMENT? I’ve played this machine several times now and it seems to be very tight
I also found MOONLIGHT MANSION, as well as other Atronic machines at Texas Hotel and Casino…

IGT has a winner with the USED CARS slot…Hit the bonus and be treated to the best audio of a Las Vegas slot: the song LOW RIDER by WAR plays during the main bonus round…A Zoot-suited, jive-talking, Hispanic, Used Car salesman talks to you throughout the game, which by the way is bi-lingual…While you’re playing this East LA gem, sound files of tasty music bites tease you until you hit the bonus that brings up the Low Rider tune, then it’s full on…Just kick back and listen to the entire song, then play the round or play as you listen to War do it’s thing…Remember, test the machine you play since most all casino slots play audio at different levels…

ICE at the Riviera Hotel

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

I was “treated” to a showing of the new show ICE (replacing the long running show – SPLASH) at the Riviera Hotel Monday night. It was a good thing.
A clear plastic – floor to ceiling – stage left to stage right – curtain (yeah, it looked like a huge shower curtain) bathed in blue spots evoked a cool, icy image. Loud, soft-rock music played for about fifteen minutes when – like in the dim imagery of a dream – a gorgeous young women on three foot stilts, ice skates and flowing robes floated elegantly behind the curtain, dance-skating back and forth across the stage…Since the folds in the translucent curtain partially obscured her and her ambiguous image, the fantasy screamed perfection; this is not to say that this young lady wasn’t perfect…
After a while the show began in earnest with young women and men skating across the ice in various configurations and devices: acrobatic hand stands on high props, flips, splits etc. Comedic violin performances, balancing high on tettering geometric boxes and tubes, skate-dancing and flipping through the air from professional see-saw like boards – all on ice-skates, on ice – were executed perfectly by this troupe of young Russion performers…All the while an excellent trumpeter ran riffs underlining the entire show…

Elena Shpagina was the cherry on the icing of the cake…Her Hoop act (Hula type hoops) was executed perfectly; she really didn’t need the hoops; all she has to do is stand “there”…
