The best FREE fun this week was our unexpected snow fall. But that’s all the wet fun I needed. Here are some safe and fun things to do this week-end. FREE!
Visit the Seven Magic Mountains
When you see a South Las Vegas Boulevard address, you assume it’s a wild crazy, neon-blazing experience on the Las Vegas Strip.
But this address is in the middle of the Nevada desert. (Complete with signs warning you to stay on the beaten path to avoid snakes.)
The Seven Magic Mountains is actually an art exhibit produced by the Nevada Museum of Art and the Art Fund. Swiss sculptor Ugo Rondinone stacked local bounders on top of each other and then painted them in crazy colors.
Each of the “mountains” is 30 feet tall.
You can see them from the 15. They always greeted me when I drove home from LA. But you have to get off the highway and see them up close and personal to truly appreciate how kewl they are.
They are 10 miles past the Southpoint Casino. A fun excursion for the week-end.
RuPaul’s Drag Race Viewing Party
Do you love this show? Then would you like to watch it on Area15’s 360-degree, floor-to-ceiling projection space?
Then grab a mask and head to The Portal there. Doors open at 7:30.
The best part: Elliott with 2 T’s, who was a contestant on Season 13, hosts the viewing party. Who better than a participant would know what’s going on behind the scenes? (I am Rosenthal with 1 L, but I digress.)
You must be 21 to attend. The viewing party is FREE but you do have to buy two drinks. (not free.)
P.S. The viewing party is happening every Friday the show is airing.
Tour Mark Twain’s House
You don’t need a mask or even have to get on a plane to take a tour of this historic house.
Samuel Clemens, AKA Mark Twain, and his family moved into this house in Hartford, Connecticut in 1874. They hired New York architect Edward Tuckerman Potter to design their home.
It has 25 rooms on three floors for a total of 11,500 square feet. The cost: $40,000.
They had Louis C. Tiffany decorate the walls and ceilings of the house. Tiffany!
You can tour the home and the gorgeous grounds by going to http://marktwainhouse.org. There’s also an expansive museum attached to the house that also has tours. FREE. Enjoy!
Have a safe and fun week-end, Las Vegas.
