FREE Fun in Las Vegas: 4-Letter Friday

BEth Ellyn Rosenthal eXp Realty Las Vegas Henderson

Entertainment in Las Vegas can be spendy. This blog is devoted to finding fun things to do for FREE. Now, there are no fun things to do in Las Vegas since we are sheltering-in-place. But a lot of kewl expensive things are now FREE. A silver lining of sorts…

Las Vegas is one of the entertainment capitals of the world. Many of the world’s most talented performers live here by choice: Celine Deion and Carlos Santana (I actually ran into him while packing food packages at the local food bank. I was starstruck….) to name a few.

Now that their shows are closed, many are still performing for FREE online.

Here is the 411 on a few of the quintessential Las Vegas performers.

John Di Domenico, Comedian

John Di Domenico as you-know-who

Di Domenico has gained national stature by his hilarious impressions of President Donald Trump. He was just a guest on Howard Stern’s show.

He talks just like him! (Trump and Stern, but mostly Trump. Oh, that’s a Book of Mormon joke.)

The last time I saw him he told a great Trump joke.

“I know walls work. I went to Israel. I visited the Wailing Wall. I can tell you I saw no Mexicans in Israel.”

I thought this was hysterical. Maybe you had to be there.

Di Domenico is posting his Trump routines on his Facebook page.

Park MGM (Nightclub)

Park MGM formerly the Monte Carlo

Las Vegas is know for its night life, especially its clubbing scene. Bottle service can equal a car payment, but hey, it’s worth it!

Park MGM decided the world can’t do without this essential activity.

Go to Instagram (@Park MGM) for its Vegas party called “The Wednesday Spin.” The world-famous DJs like DJ Crykit, Jamie D Great and Mell Starr will be spinning tunes so you can dance the night away.

Party starts at 7 pm PDT and goes until 10. (Usually most Vegas party-goers are just waking up at 7 pm. But I digress.) A different DJ takes over on the hour.

Each week there will be different DJs and new sets.

Best part: NO COVER. No line! Plus no one can make fun of your dance moves. And you don’t have to buy dress-to-impress clothes either!

Mat Franco (Magician)

Mat Franco performs at The Linq Hotel + Experience

Yes, he won NBC’s America’s Got Talent in 2015. He currently is a headliner at The Linq Hotel + Experience. The cheap seats are $83.37 and the premium ones up close are $133.47.

But you can watch him do card manipulations for FREE on Facebook. Every Wednesday at 5 he is posting a new Facebook Live performance.

I am going to tune in to see if he can magically manipulate a commission check for me.

Cirque du Soleil

O is without question my favorite Cirque show

Las Vegas was the first city on the planet to have a permanent Cirque du Soleil show. (Mystere). Before that you had to see the show in a traveling circus tent, which was super fun too.

Las Vegas still has the most Cirque shows in one place: five at the moment. The cheapest seat in the upper balcony is $100…

But you can see Cirque shows for FREE at the company’s new digital hub Cirque Connect. http://cirquedusoleil.com/cirqueconnect. If you prefer Twitter, yo can get there with #cirque-connect.

The company is showing existing footage of various Cirque shows. I am going to watch the hour-long special of O, which is currently playing at the Bellagio Hotel & Casino. O is a pun on the word eau, which means water in French. Cirque, of course, is a French-Canadian company.

O is my favorite Cirque show and I’ve tried to see them all. I’ve seen it eight times and want to go again.

And the music is awesome.

Definitely worth an hour of your time.

Have a safe and healthy shelter-in-place. Next week I’ll be discuss way to see FREE Broadway shows.
