No offense guys, but Irving and I totally do Vegas like we’re retired old folks.
But first… Dunkin’s Coffee (obviously)!
We convinced Erika and Timmy to Play BINGO with us!!!
Yea, we have our own dabbers. What?
You know how all the old people have their Bingo good luck charms? So do we!
We picked seats 7 and 11! (July 11th = Anniversary!)
Plus Reese was supposed to bring me luck!
Whoo Hoo Free Shirley Temples! (with two cherries!)
Sadly, none of us won any money, but man was it fun!
We had dinner over at the Silverton, and check out this Gelato Display!
Looks harmless, right?
Until you get to the Mango Display!
HAHA. It’s the little things, my friends!
As part of our hotel package, we got two free tickets to Le Reve at the Wynn. There was a ticket mishap and the Wynn pretty much gave our tickets away to someone else… but after a half an hour of waiting around, it all got sorted out.
The drama continued after we sat down. Some seats were double booked, people were standing in the aisles, people kept getting up and sitting down. It was quite distracting at first. The show was already starting and people were standing in my way. grrr a huge pet peeve!
We were actually quite disappointed in the show itself. Maybe we were just comparing it to KA from the night before (which was just amazing). Most cirque shows are fantastical and they bring you inside a fantasy world that makes it easy to open your imagination… this show didn’t allow me to leave my reality. I never “left” my seat like I did in KA. Le Reve definitely didn’t live up to my expectations.
- The music was a little too 80s heavy
- There wasn’t much “cirque” performing, it was mostly diving and dancing
- The water effects were cool, but it slowed the performers down
- There was a live band doing all the music, but we thought it was recorded until the very end. I think if we realized it was live we might have appreciated it more.
- I didn’t really care for the costumes either, I thought they were a little too strange for the type of show it was.
All that being said, it was entertaining, but not cirque worthy. I’m a tough critic.
Unsatisfied with Le Reve, we choreographed our own cirque show!
ACT I: Sauter sur le Lit
ACT II: Combat d’oreiller
