We just got back from a weekend in Vegas and had a great time seeing friends and visiting our old stomping grounds (does it count as stomping grounds if we lived there for a year?). We also got a chance to explore Luxor Hotel & Casino for the first time.
Just within Luxor, they have shops, shows, tons of restaurants, and of course gambling. They even have attractions like Bodies The Exhibition and Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition that are great for families. A couple of our friends who live in Vegas came by to meet us and we got tacos at Tacos & Tequilas to celebrate Cinco de Mayo weekend.
The highlight of the trip was seeing the Blue Man Group show! We both saw it twice before, but it’s still one of our favorites. They are always adding new elements to it. If you’ve never been, a Blue Man Group show perfectly marries amazing music, comedy, visuals, and a lot of audience interaction. You have to try REALLY hard not to be stupidly smiling as you watch the show.
Before the show, we joined the Behind the Blue tour to get a behind the scenes look at how all the magic happens and you even get to play some of the instruments. I was totally nerding out hearing about all the intricate details that go on backstage and you even get to sit in a live sound check and see them before they become Blue Men!
If you want to make your experience even more memorable, you can be part of a private meet & greet after the show. We got a chance to interact with a Blue Man and take photos with him.
They’re all incredibly talented and we learned that the hardest part is catching a ridiculous number of marshmallows in your mouth at once without gagging. ;)
We always love visiting Vegas and now we have a new spot to revisit every time we’re back. To get you started planning your next trip, we’re giving away two more tickets to the Blue Man Group show. See below on how to enter!
