Mac King at Harrahs

Mac King’s Comedy Magic show makes me really happy. It is a family friendly (very kid oriented, really) magic and comedy show that still has a lot to offer adults.

At its core, the show is a magic show with rope tricks, card tricks, sleight of hand, fire, some magical appearances and disappearances and his signature goldfish tricks. The show is really well written and has some finely crafted humor woven into it. (something you can hone during a show that has been running for almost 20 years). There is also a lot of room for improv during the audience participation segment. (a few for kids and a few for adults).

Don’t let the afternoon time slot (1p and 3p) fool you. This is a high quality show. The afternoon time slot is a reflection of the kid/family friendly focus, not the show quality. It isn’t as flashy and boisterous as Penn & Teller, but it shares a lot of the sensibilities for a much more reasonable price.

2019 Book Suggestions

The beginning of the year is the best time to get the new edition of a few of my favorite guide/resource books.

The American Casino Guide has information about casinos across the United States as well as guidance on how to play many casino games. The big draw for this guide, though, is the coupon section.
At the beginning of January, I was able to turn The D $25 Matchplay and Push Your Bet on 22 into a $50 profit, more than covering the price of the book.
Those coupons are also the reason many people like myself buy the book year after year. Here is the  2019 coupon list.

Eating Las Vegas is another handy resource. The in-depth reviews and commentary are for higher end restaurants, but it has info on more accessible restaurants, too. They also include some good tips for having the best dining experience whether you are dining solo or with a group.
Most of the reviews are Strip-based, but there are local options, too.
