Beth Ellyn Rosenthal eXp realty Las Vegas Henderson RIPPA Method 4-Letter Friday

My Anna apple tree is budding. Spring is here. And that is my metaphor for Las Vegas. Show are reopening on the Las Vegas Strip. The best news yet: Three Square Food Bank just announced there will be a Restaurant Week this year: June 7-18. There will be a take-out option. Restaurant Week!!!!!

Celebrate the Year of the Ox

Local shopping emporiums are really getting into the Year of the Ox. Last week we told you about all the kewl things at Downtown Summerlin.

This week head to the Fashion Show Mall on the Las Vegas Strip. The Lantern Garden dance is one of the traditions. Costumed dancers make a sea of red lanterns sway to traditional Chinese music. The goal: to attract a year of prosperity.

The dancers perform inside the Great Hall. Dances happen Thursday through Sunday through next week-end. Performance times are 1, 3 and 5 pm.

Let’s hope it works!!!!

Meet a Mermaid…Eventually

The Silverton Casino Hotel Las Vegas likes to call its Las Vegas aquarium the “best free attraction in Las Vegas.” The 117,000 gallon tank is home to thousands of tropical fish and some home-grown mermaids.

In the days before the pandemic, you could interact with the mermaids as they swim in the tank. During Christmas Santa joins the fish too.

There is also an interactive feeding show.

All of these are currently on hold because the hotel doesn’t want crowds pressing to see the shows. But the fish are still there to marvel at. Hopefully they will return, too.

The Bass Pro Shops at the Silverton has an 18,000-gallon tank with live koi. They swim around rock formations you can actually see at Red Rock Canyon.

The aquariums are open 24/7 and are FREE.

Watch the Wild Life at Sunset Park

Sunset Park is the crown jewel of Clark County’s park system. The 324-acre park opened to the public in 1967.

The park has four trails. But I like the 3.1 mile Sunset Lake and Dunes Trail. The paved trail is 12-feet wide.

The lake is beautiful (for a desert) but I love watching the natural wild life. Cotton-tailed rabbits inhabit most Las Vegas trails. But here you can also see black-tailed jackrabbits the size of a cat!

You can see coveys of quail feeding along the dunes if you don’t scare them away.

Have a great week-end Las Vegas!
