If you’re in any doubt that you can do nearly everything in Las Vegas, this week’s issue of Las Vegas Magazine should convince you once and for all. Within the following pages we’ve assembled so many di erent facets of what makes Las Vegas great: Natural wonders; sports; attractions; live music; dining; and so much more!

• Natural wonders. It may surprise many of you to realize you could be in the Grand Canyon in about two hours. And Grand Canyon West allows you to customize your experience, right down to where you eat while you’re there (“Nature’s Bounty,” p. 32).

• Sports. It’s a nonchampionship bout, but the upcoming fight between welterweight Keith Thurman and super-welterweight Tim Tszyu at T-Mobile Arena should provide plenty of entertainment for those passionate about pugilism (“Proving Ground,” p. 36 ).

• Attractions. Those who want to soar to new heights or go deep into the ocean can do both, at High Roller at The Linq Promenade, which this year celebrates its 10th anniversary (“Its Turn to Shine,” p. 34), and at Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay (“Making Waves,” p. 40).

• Live music. Fans of country music will definitely want to get their tickets to Miranda Lambert, who will playing the fi nal dates of her Velvet Rodeo The Las Vegas Residency at Bakkt Theater at Planet Hollywood (“One Last Rodeo,” p. 38), while fans of classic rock won’t want to miss the return of Foreigner to its headlining gig at The Venetian (“It’ll Feel Like the First Time,” p. 20).

• Dining. One of the Strip’s longest-standing restaurants is also one of its best: Capital Grille at FSLV—Fashion Show Las Vegas (“Living Large,” p. 28).

The Element of Surprise

Magic duo has made a decades-long career out of keeping audiences on their toes

Once I turned 20, it’s hard to remember a time when Penn & Teller haven’t been part of my life. Far before I moved to Las Vegas in 2003, I remember vividly so many indelible moments: First discovering them on Saturday Night Live in 1985; seeing them in the music video for Run D.M.C.’s “It’s Tricky” in 1986; renting Penn & Teller Get Killed in 1989; watching their various appearances on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno in the ’90s; seeing them on television shows like Friends, The Drew Carey Show, The West Wing and Home Improvement; and, of course, seeing them live for the first time at their long-running show in Las Vegas. (They are actually one of the longest-running acts in Vegas history, 31-plus years and counting.)

I’ve since seen the show almost more than any other in town, and it never, ever, gets old. And there’s a very good reason for that. Just as their resume would suggest, Penn & Teller are never satisfied to rest, even though they easily could at this stage of their careers. When they’re not busy hosting Fool Us on the CW (and getting fooled very little by fellow magicians), The Tall One and The Quiet One are always coming with new ways of presenting material, some of it so old that it’s public domain. A great recent example is the “donut on a string” illusion, here expanded to include an inner tube and a piece of rope (and a very hungry Teller).

There’s another reason to be a frequent patron of the fun at the Penn & Teller Theatre: It’s one of the most relaxing, inviting shows in town. As patrons begin filing in, pianist Mike Jones evokes Vince Guaraldi vibes on the ivories while Penn Jillette accompanies him on a bass. You really feel like you’ve just entered someone’s living room, and they’re doing their best to make you feel at home. And boy, does it work.

At their core, Penn & Teller have always been about one thing: Surprising their audience. How they’ve managed to do it as long as they have may be the biggest surprise of all. –Ken Miller

No Limits to the Funny

Comedy star’s eponymous club features the man himself this week

No one likes being picked on … unless the person doing it happens to be extremely funny. When the man himself hosts at Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club, you’ll find yourself wanting to see what smart remarks he has for you as he warms up the crowd before the show. Nobody is safe and nothing is off limits for the Everybody Loves Raymond star.

The venue itself has been bringing top-tier comedy to MGM Grand since it opened in 2012, but with its relocation from the basement to the District, the space became an intimate, stylish room with warm lighting and a signature black velvet curtain, conjuring vibes similar to a 1920s lounge. As a bonus, just outside the doors to the main room is a quaint bar that features live jazz performances multiple nights a week; it’s a perfect setting to imbibe in if you’re not ready to wrap up your evening after the curtain closes.

Garrett hosts this March 30-31, with the hilarious Nate Craig and Dustin Nickerson joining him. Any show at this spot guarantees top-notch comedy, but if you can drop in when Garrett is in the room, you’re in for a treat. He’s a master at what he does and will have the crowd rolling mere moments after taking the stage.

Craig, who also performs alongside Nickerson and Andy Huggins March 25-29, is a man of many talents, including acting and writing—he appeared in the Netflix series Maniac and has written for A Prairie Home Companion and MTV’s Ridiculousness.

Regardless of who’s taking the stage when you decide to stop into Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club, you can count on having a fantastically funny experience. The intimate venue allows you to feel like the comic performing is merely having a conversation, and every person booked here has some serious comedy chops. Join the conversation! –Em

Doggone Good

Southern-style food combines with drinks for a fine time

If you love sports, wait until you see Dawg House Saloon & Sports Book

The big, large, huge, mammoth space features a two-story wall of screens in the sportsbook, plus couches, recliners, and food truck The Mouse House, serving gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches.

Head into breakfast at the outpost of the Nashville original and check out such items as the smoked salmon platter, with a bagel, cream cheese, wild salmon and heirloom tomatoes; the Three Little Pigs, a squealer of a sandwich with bacon

jam, sliced ham, applewood bacon, eggs and American cheese; or the steak and eggs with a 10-ounce ribeye. Plus, you can down carafes of mimosa and Bloody Marys for a very reasonable sum.

Stick around for dinner, and get smoked chicken wings, sandwiches like The Monocle, with havarti, Muenster, and fontina; and burgers like the Golden Retriever (a cheeseburger with traditional topping) and The Poodle, with cherry peppers, spicy queso and sautéed mushrooms. Of course, you’ve got to consider

one of the “Dawgs,” with options like the Aloha Dawg (pineapple relish), and the Chihuahua (pico de gallo and avocado crema).

And you gotta wash those dawgs down with something, right? You can get a boatload of drinkables, from specialty cocktails, canned and draft beers, shooters and spirits and the aptly named “Crushed Grapes.” –Nina King

Living the Nightlife

The disco era boogies on in energetic Strip production

You may have heard about this venue welcoming pop sensations Kylie Minogue and Christina Aguilera, but what you may not know is that Voltaire Belle de Nuit at The Venetian also has its own production, Belle de Nuit, and it’s a whole lot of fun.

French for “beauty of the night,” Belle de Nuit features striking performers with all kinds of talents, all wrapped up in a Studio 54-esque theme that ensures you’ll never know what to expect next. One minute, you’ll see Joan of Arc take to the pole (and display some impressive athleticism), the next you’ll be wowed by bondage gear-clad aerialists, then slightly Sapphic astronauts and their tandem acrobatics.

It’s obvious this show was created specifically for Voltaire, and it truly uses the space well. Each number allows time for the performers to strut up and down the long runway that juts out from the center of the stage, which is perfect, because each act features stylish and creative wardrobe pieces that really deserve their time in the spotlight. In a stroke of genius, the chairs in the venue swivel! So no, you won’t be

uncomfortably craning your neck all night long.

The energy doesn’t stop at the stage, either; performers roam throughout the crowd as guests find their seats and during each number, making the experience feel immersive. If one thing can be said for sure, it’s that there are no bad seats in the house.

Clearly inspired by the exciting nightlife of the disco days, this show acts as almost a hybrid between your typical variety show and a party. A live DJ spins tracks throughout the whole evening, and the emcee pauses the show twice to allow for some moving and grooving while you socialize with those around you.

Don’t forget to glance around the room, as the decor here is like nothing else. Clear bubbles float above plush pink seats while blue and purple-toned lighting illuminates the large crystal-like structures that frame the main stage while the bar in the back of the room buzzes, creating a night on the town you absolutely need to have. –Em Jurbala

It’ll Feel Like the First Time

Supergroup returns to the Strip to deliver the classics

Without founding member and bandleader Mick Jones, there would have been no Foreigner. No “Cold as Ice.” No “Head Games.” No New Jersey Mass Choir backing founding lead singer Lou Gramm on Foreigner’s No. 1 megahit “I Want to Know What Love Is.” While health problems placed significant restrictions on Gramm’s ability to participate in the band, vocalist Kelly Hansen stepped up to the mic in 2005 and became Foreigner’s hot-blooded frontman, enabling fans to continue to hear touchstones such as “Urgent” and “Feels Like the First Time” delivered live by the legendary musician who composed them.

Now Foreigner can add “Vegas Headliner” to a history that started around the time a teenage Hansen began to be recognized for his voice and joined his first band.

Becoming Foreigner’s frontman would be daunting for any singer, but Hansen cites Brian Johnson of AC/DC and Sammy Hagar’s tenure with Van Halen as successful precedents. Jones, in fact, produced 5150, Van Halen’s first album with Hagar, and helped the singer adapt his voice to Van Halen. Hansen’s respect for Jones’ production skills and musical intuition made the decision to join Foreigner a no-brainer. “I would say he listens to his gut and he has a very high standard,” says Hansen. “No matter what happens, Mick Jones will always come around to doing what he thinks is the best thing.” –Matt Kelemen

Good Times, Great Music

Delicious dishes add to the down-home experience

You got your drinks, your music and your food. What more could you ask for? How about a three-story wall of TV screens, bars on every floor and views all up and down the Vegas Strip? And Blake, you’ve got Blake.

At Ole Red , Blake Shelton’s sweet collaboration with Ryman Hospitality Properties, that huge wall of screens is fronted by a stage that is almost always occupied. Up on the fourth floor, check out the sights; a DJ even plays from the small stage.

From the bars, order draft and canned beers, wine, mocktails, a variety of takes on classic drinks (a variation on the Long Island iced tea is called Adios My Friend), and signature drinks like the Some Beach margarita. Both specialty drinks and teas are served in a 20-ounce souvenir pint glass or Mason jar.

Come hungry! The fried pickles, sliced longways, and the Redneck Nachos could probably feed you and every brother you have—tri-colored

chips are covered in taco meat, white queso, corn salsa, olives and avocado cream. The Hell Right burger comes with Hatch green chilis and smoked mushrooms; the Trash-Talking taco salad is like the bigger sister to everyone’s homemade dish; and the Boys Round Here triple decker club sandwich is so big you might not be able to get your mouth around it. –Nina King

Mesmerizing Moments

Venue combines luxurious surroundings with creative cocktails

It’s such an only-in-Vegas moment: Upon stepping off the elevators to Legacy Club, you’ll be greeted by local legends like Howard Hughes, Jay Sarno, Benny Binion and Jackie Gaughan. OK, so these men have passed away, so not exactly. What you actually see are metal busts of those men, plus six more notables, that welcome you to the bar and lounge on the 60th floor that honors the spirit of the icons.

The literal crowning jewel of Circa Resort & Casino (it sits on the hotel’s rooftop) offers an indoor and outdoor experience that should be on everyone’s to-do list while visiting Las Vegas.

Not only will the phenomenal views of downtown, the Strip and beyond leave you completely in awe, but Legacy Club is also a top spot for chic and lush surroundings, an impressive cocktail program and some of the best bartenders in the biz. In fact, in two of the industry’s most-respected competitions, their lead bartender was rated a top 10 bartender in the West, and the whole bar team was rated one of the top 30 in the nation.

“The drinking experience is second to none here,” said Sam Pulliam, director of beverage for Circa Resort & Casino. “The team we have is the best

in the city. The menu is diverse. We have something for every flavor palate; if we don’t, then you can tell any of our bartenders ... some flavors that you like, and they can make you a cocktail off the cuff that’s gonna hit that sweet spot.”

Pulliam spotlights three specialty cocktails to try, beginning with the Triple Seven. “It’s citrusy, floral, light and refreshing,” he said. Similar to the classic sour cocktail, it’s mixed with Patrón sherry cask-aged anejo, pisco, St-Germain, framboise, lime, egg white and blackberry.

“The way cocktails have kind of evolved over the years, people have

24 | 3.24.24 Las Vegas Magazine Venue courtesy photos


tried to incorporate different spices you’d see in cooking and see how they can be incorporated into cocktails,” Pulliam said. “We’re trying to think outside the box but also make drinks that are still approachable for everybody.” And the perfect example of this philosophy is the Lucky Rabbit. It uses a sweet and slightly spiced syrup made from the Mediterranean spice ras el hanout, and the delicious result is mixed with Appleton Estate 12 Year Old Rare Casks rum, Principe de los Apostoles Mate gin, carrot juice and citrus and topped with black salt for a truly unique experience.

Tips/Insider Knowledge

Book the Craft Cocktail Course.

Every Friday and Saturday from 2-4 p.m. you’ll get your own bartender kit and learn how to make three cocktails. Check out the case filled with 1,000 ounces of real gold!

Enjoy live music on the weekends.

Legacy Club takes nonalcoholic cocktails seriously, too. Check out the recipes and you’ll be tempted to order one yourself.

Cigar smokers will enjoy the cigar menu offerings with brands like Montecristo, Ashton Monarch, Cohiba, Rocky Patel, Patron and more.

For those who like varying degrees of spice in their cocktail, try the What’s Your Number? The blend of Casamigos blanco tequila, Ancho Reyes verde chile poblano liqueur, coconut, agave and citrus is elevated with your choice of desired spice level, provided by one to five dashes of firewater bitters.

And fans of brown spirits can rejoice! “We have the 1994 to 1996 O.F.C. bour-

bon, Pappy Van Winkle, Weller, Old Rip Van Winkle,” Pulliam said. “We’ve even secured our own private barrels that are unique to Legacy Club—barrels from Blanton’s, Frey Ranch, Jefferson’s Reserve, Buffalo Trace, Weller and Russell’s Reserve.” –Kiko Miyasato

Stephen Roehm

From island life to the Las Vegas Strip

The 1988 movie Cocktail inspired many a burgeoning bartender, including Stephen Roehm, assistant general manager and beverage director for Cabo Wabo Cantina at Miracle Mile Shops.

After bartending for a short while in San Diego while he was attending college, “Somewhere along the way I saw the movie Cocktail and was like, ‘I want to do that!’ he said. “So, I moved to St. Thomas and bartended for two-and-ahalf years.”

After getting island fever, he said, he moved to Las Vegas in 2006. Over the years, he split his resume between bartending and managing at various spots on the off the Strip and, more than nine years ago, he joined Cabo Wabo Cantina.

“Now I help build the cocktail menu, keep up on the latest cocktail and spirits trends, work with pricing for products and vendors, and assist our managers out on the floor,” Roehm said. And after so many years at Cabo Wabo Cantina, Roehm still

• Libation • Cocorita

A lot of Cabo Wabo Cantina’s margaritas feature Sammy Hagar’s own line of tequila, like the Cocorita. The coconut-inspired margarita is a blend of Sammy Hagar’s Santo blanco tequila, fresh lime juice, triple sec, coconut cream, and sweet and sour. The margarita is then garnished with lime and a rim of toasted coconut flakes. –KM

loves his job. “I love the people I work with. I love that I meet people from all over the world. ...We’re on the Las Vegas Strip and we’re a bar and restaurant owned by a rock star!”

That rock star is Sammy Hagar, and guests of Cabo Wabo Cantina pick up on the Red Rocker’s vibe the moment they step through the doors. “Margaritas are our backbone,” Roehm said. “Sammy said that killer margaritas were going to be the standard of Cabo Wabo.” –Kiko Miyasato

Friends With Benefits

By now, you’ve probably all seen it while traveling on Las Vegas Boulevard South— the prominent façade, rising high and jutting out. It’s practically impossible to miss, making Capital Grille arguably the most distinctive restaurant on the Strip. But that’s just the beginning of the “wow!” factor you’ll experience dining here.

The Las Vegas outpost of this national chain is also one of its largest, so spacious that it has two entrances on either side—one from the Strip, the other

from the valet parking area. But despite the size, no matter where you sit, it feels intimate; Capital Grille feels like a true old-school Vegas room, full of impeccably appointed tables, plenty of areas for private events, a spacious bar area and plenty of displayed wines and other spirits. And, as you can imagine, the views are unparalleled—everything from the Wynn properties to Resorts World. With such great views, a cocktail is practically mandatory, and Capital Grille has a

treat for every palate. Vodka fans will want to try the Stoli Doli, a drink with a Dole pineapple finish that’s chilled and served straight up. Bourbon fans, heads up! The Old-Fashioned take here, called In Fashion, blends Russell’s Reserve 10-year small batch, Grand Marnier, black walnut bitters and an amarena cherry, all chilled with an orange ice sphere.

If you go for lunch, starters are some of your favorite classics like shrimp cocktail, New England clam chowder, caramelized French onion soup, Caesar salad (with Grana Padano croutons) and pan-fried calamari with hot cherry peppers, but make sure to ask your server about off-themenu options. On the day I attended, I was informed about a lobster bisque that was not included on the menu. (However, often it is; selections can vary widely, depending on the week.) It was sensational, featuring large, delectable chunks. Another great lobster option is the lobster mac ’n’ cheese.

Longstanding Capital Grille delivers unparalleled views and cuisine

Entrées include plenty of seafood and meat options, from a Maine lobster salad with a citrus vinaigrette, the Capital Grille cheeseburger (served with truffle fries), a 22-ounce bone-in ribeye, and sushi-grade sesame seared tuna (served with gingered rice). Once again, off-the-menu options are definitely worth exploring. My server informed me there was a French dip sandwich available, using sliced ribeye. Again, I tried it, and again, did not regret my decision one bit. My vegetarian companion was surprised by an off-the-menu pasta dish with an oil-and-butter sauce.

Sides are all deeply satisfying, from Sam’s Mashed Potatoes using red bliss potatoes, sweet cream, butter and salt, au gratin potatoes, creamed spinach (with a béchamel sauce blend) and grilled asparagus with lemon mosto, sprinkled with rare fleur de sel.

Don’t skip on dessert here, the perfect capper to a perfect experience. We recommend flourless chocolate espresso cake, which pairs wonderfully with fresh raspberries. Other options include brulée-style cheesecake paired with fresh berries, and coconut cream pie, drizzled with housemade caramel sauce and a hint of rum.

Grand Canyon West allows you to customize your experience

It might escape you as you take your taxi or Uber to your hotel room from Harry Reid International Airport, but once you’re ensconced in your hotel room, get this: In two hours, you could be enjoying one of the natural wonders of the world—the Grand Canyon. And lest you think the experience is

just staring off into the expanse from one of the ridges, think again! Grand Canyon West features some of the most exhilarating ways to experience this paradise.

The best thing about Grand Canyon West is that an experience there is completely customizable. You can choose to Build Your Own Adventure, where, in addition to general admission, you can add on a visit to the world-famous Skywalk, a zipline adventure (sorry, but you have to be at least 4 feet or taller, weigh between 90 to 275 pounds and be able to climb staircases without assistance for this

particular option) or a helicopter ride over the West Rim (packages start from $49).

You can choose from so many other experiences as well:

If you’re budget-conscious, opt for the Grand Package, which includes general admission to Grand Canyon West and a ticket to the Skywalk (starting from $68). You’ll want to start your experience with the great views at Guano Point and Eagle Point, which are included with admission to Grand Canyon West;

If you’re a planning on spending a bit more time and are planning on

32 | 3.24.24 Las Vegas Magazine

a sit-down meal, order the Grander Package, which, in addition to general admission and the Skywalk pass, includes one meal ticket (starting from $93). This allows you to dine at Sky View Restaurant, boasting some of the best views you’ll have from any eatery in the world, and its menu offerings cater to both carnivores and vegetarians, from a chef salad with diced ham and turkey to an Impossible Burger with your choice of Swiss or American cheese. Other dining options include Guano Point Café (the vegetarian curry vegetables are highly recommended) and Gwe

Ma’jo Restaurant (you’ve gotta try the Hualapai pinion stew with a side of frybread; a vegetarian version is also available).

If you want to make your friends back home jealous, book the Grandest Package, which, in addition to general admission and a Skywalk pass, includes a helicopter flight to the West Rim and a pontoon ride on the Colorado River (starting from $367);

If you want to make it a truly unforgettable experience, you have to get the Grandiose Package, where every activity is better than the next: lunch on the banks of the Colorado

River; a moderate hike to Travertine Falls; and a guided one-day whitewater rafting trip (starting from $429);

West of the rim is Peach Springs, Ariz., the capital of the Hualapai nation, where you can catch a whitewater rafting adventure on the Colorado River or grab a bite to eat in the Diamond Creek restaurant, where you can enjoy bananas Foster frybread, open face hot beef on Texas toast, and the 12-inch Hualapai taco.

Best of all, by ordering your tickets early, you get to skip the ticket line—just like the fast passes at Disney World!

Ten years later, High Roller remains a quintessential Strip experience

Prior to 2014 there were a few favored places on the Strip that enabled high-altitude views of Las Vegas. Whether at a spinning restaurant on the north Strip, a plush lounge atop a tall resort on the south Strip, or the Ei el Tower replica that rises above Paris Las Vegas, vistas were available, if not always accessible without a reservation. Then came High Roller.

The observation wheel was assembled at the east end of The Linq Promenade in 2014 and became instantly iconic. Pod-like passenger cabins rose slowly in a 30-minute, 360-degree journey that revealed Vegas incrementally. The rooftop of the Flamingo, the skylines and ever-present construction cranes on the north end of Las Vegas Boulevard, familiar fountains and the forest-covered mountains beneath the western horizon in the distance all came into view in a way never seen before.

The views remain incomparable, and the cityscape has evolved quite a bit in 10 years. There was no Allegiant Stadium, no T-Mobile Arena, no Golden Knights, no Raiders and no Aces. Downtown Las Vegas had yet to top o the tallest towers it now counts in its tourism corridor. The properties reimagined as The Linq Hotel, The Cromwell and Horseshoe Las Vegas existed in previous incarnations under di erent names.

before Jimmy Kimmel would open his comedy club at The Linq Promenade, but the destination had already become a hub for Vegas visitors and locals. Any concert at Brooklyn Bowl, any round of beers at Yard House or any sojourn to satisfy a sweet tooth at I Love Sugar could be complemented by a rotation reaching 550 feet in the air.

High Roller is a destination on its own, of course, with contrasting experiences depending on whether a round-trip is taken during the day or at night. Sunsets are spectacular, while night rides rise above a neon wonderland that now includes the high-tech architectural marvel Sphere, visible by gazing in a northeast direction from a perch in a pod.

A Happy Half Hour cabin option is available for adults from noon to 5 p.m. daily, while families can download a curriculum sheet that lists fun facts to share. For example, each cabin weights 44,000 pounds and has a diameter of 23 feet. The entire wheel weighs more than three-and-a-half tons and is reinforced by 5.3 miles of cable.

A cabin at the apex of the High Roller skyward journey is the highest place on the Strip to tie the knot. Wedding experiences include flowers and music accompanied by 2,000 LED lights after dark, with an optional Elvis minister for a classic, only-in-Sin City nuptials atmosphere.

It’s the same ride every visit, but views change with the evolution of the city. There was no annual Formula 1 race in Vegas 10 years ago, and the idea of U2 having a Vegas residency may have seemed far-fetched. Then again, the idea of a 550-foot-tall observation wheel in the middle of the Strip may have seemed like a farfetched idea at one time. Now it’s reality.

Nonchampionship bout between Keith Thurman and Tim Tszyu could have big repercussions

(EDITOR’S NOTE: Keith Thurman su ered a biceps injury. Fighting in his place will be Sebastian Fundora. For an updated version of this story, go to lasvegasmagazine.com )

Keith Thurman started fighting at 7. Now 35, the welterweight has fought five times in the past seven years, and his wisdom and experience have been accompanied by injuries. Now Thurman returns to Las Vegas, where Manny Pacquiao floored him in 2019, to reinvigorate his legacy in a battle against World Boxing Organization super-welterweight champion Tim Tszyu.

Although Tszyu is not defending his championship, rumors have sprouted in the boxing press that he may be in danger of losing his belt. The second-generation professional boxer from Australia made camp in Las Vegas to train before the fight and withstood a barrage of trash-talking by Thurman at their February press conference. Thurman is currently not ranked due to his inactivity.

Then the WBO announced that the winner will face welterweight champion Terence Crawford, who would move up to the 154-pound division. Rumors said if Thurman wins, Tszyu would be stripped of his title so Crawford can be eligible to add it to his collection of WBO, World Boxing Association and World Boxing Council welterweight titles.

According to a rambunctious Thurman at the press conference, Tszyu’s concern should be loss of pride. Tszyu was unfazed, if ine ective at preventing Thurman from talking over him, but in a later interview with Premier Boxing, he stated directly to Thurman that the fight would end in two rounds.

2 p.m. March 30, prices vary. axs.com

Tszyu’s focus is on climbing the ranks and getting the most high-profi le fights he can, but family and his homeland are motivating factors. His father is former undisputed light-welterweight champion and International Boxing Fall of Fame inductee Kostya Tszyu, who passed his gifts for speed and accuracy onto his son. His homeland has been historically underrepresented in professional boxing. Tszyu takes a proactive path to fights, in this case setting up camp in Las Vegas well in advance. Thurman needs a victory to move on to another high-profi le fight. Most boxing observers give Tszyu a clear edge, but former Thurman opponent Shawn Porter predicts the veteran fighter will prevail. Thurman’s one loss was to Pacquiao, and he won a unanimous decision over Mario Barrios in 2022.

proactive path to fights, in this case setting to and has taunted his challenger as having all bark

The evening’s co-main event has generated nearly as much attention as the top-of-card bout. Rolando “Rolly” Romero defends his WBA super-lightweight title against Isaac “Pitbull” Cruz and has taunted his challenger as having all bark and no bite. Cruz intends to silence Romero in a clash that, along with Tszyu vs. Thurman, will be the debut of professional boxing on Amazon Prime. The new association could mark the beginning of a new era in boxing with figures such as Tszyu, Romero and Crawford being its most famous faces. The boxing ring, however, will always be best viewed in a live setting.

Keith Thurman

, which ends its run at Planet Hollywood on April 6, is more than a residency. It both embodies her untamable spirit and enables her to tell her story through setlist structure and Gibson guitars. As she told Las Vegas Magazine in an interview last year, everything about her residency was carefully planned.

For example, when Lambert returned to kick off her residency last summer, it started with the opening track from her latest studio effort. “(Lyrics from) ‘Actin’ Up’ inspired not only my album title, Palomino, but also the name of the residency, so it felt like the best way to kick the party off in Vegas,” said Lambert from her farm in Tennessee, where she was preparing to leave for her home state of Texas to celebrate her 40th birthday with family and recharge. “I wrote it with Luke Dick and Jon Randall, and they know me so well, so I think that’s why it embodies so much of my personality in its lyrics.”

She followed it up with “Fastest Girl in Town” and “Kerosene” (the song from her 2005 debut album Kerosene, that established her rebellious image), before strapping on the Miranda Lambert Bluebird guitar created by Gibson Custom Shop and strumming the opening chords to “Famous in a Small Town.” Bakkt Theater has been transformed into her home and the audience into guests who receive the highest level of musical hospitality.

Maintaining an intimate feel has always been important to Lambert as she graduated from bars and clubs to bigger rooms. “When we designed and built out the Velvet Rodeo set, I wanted to have the feeling of some pit, some seats and make sure there wasn’t a bad seat in the house,” she said. “The way the lighting, sound and effects play in the room honestly came together better than I ever even dreamt.”

Putting the setlist together was a challenge of balancing hits and deep cuts. “I always love ‘Carousel’ in that room, and I’m not sure if

38 | 3.24.24 Las Vegas Magazine

we’ll do that one outside of Velvet Rodeo in the future as it is such a moment in that room.

I think ‘Kerosene’ will always get people stomping their feet, and it’s been a lot of fun to do ‘Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)’ in Las Vegas, as it was built for that crowd!”

Lambert enters her fourth decade as the co-owner of Big Loud Texas, with

which she intends to support the next generation of writers and artists from the Friendship state. She’s been writing a lot lately and plans to release new music this year.


“I made a promise a long time ago to my fans that I’d push myself when we go into the studio,” she said. “I think they know that when I say a record is ready, it’s something I’ve really put a lot of thought into.”

One good thing about the subtropical hot desert environment is there are no sharknados. There will likely never be a sharknado in Las Vegas, but if one does occur, Shark Reef Aquarium is designed and built to withstand the wind-and-fin phenomenon. Visitors can be secure in the knowledge they will be safely separated from the sharks by tempered glass regardless of what’s happening in the world outside of Mandalay Bay’s animal realm.

Over its decades-long history at Mandalay Bay, Shark Reef Aquarium has been host to some of the most fascinating and unique animals across the globe (both above and beneath the water), and its most recent addition— the first since 2008—is a dream come true for lovers of sharks, as well as a highly educational segment that helps to dispel some popular myths.

The re-creation of a kelp forest includes a variety of cold-water sharks

(horn, leopard, swell and pyjama), and the aquarium also re-creates the dappled light that helps to camouflage the sharks in their natural environment. It’s here you’ll learn tidbits like:

• Sharks do not need to constantly move to survive. In fact, species like the pyjama are nocturnal, meaning they will likely be sleeping at the bottom of the enclosure during most of the day;

• Despite what you see in movies like Jaws, sharks actually eat very little:

Mandalay Bay 702.632.4555


Shark Reef Aquarium re-creates environments for a

multitude of species

see. Placards provide fast facts about French angelfish, queen triggerfish and parrotfish in a learning experience that accompanies the length of the trek.

In fact, most sharks eat about 1 to 2 percent of their body weight in a sevento 10-day period (humans, conversely, eat that much in a day).

The environment inside Shark Reef seems like a world unto its own, a sort of cross between Indiana Jones archeology adventure and Jules Verne beneath-the-sea scenery. There is a jungle with ruins to cross through before shark-sighting, with a tropical scent being the first indication upon entry that climate change is ahead.

There are a few hazards. One must evade a pool of piranha, a Burmese python that gives lethal hugs and a Komodo Dragon that looks cute but is

an apex predator that would not work very well as a support animal. The king of this jungle is a deceptively chill Johnson’s crocodile with an ancient sunken temple for a castle. Its method of capturing prey involves clamping down with its 70 teeth and drowning dinner before commencing consumption.

As long as visitors remain well-behaved, there is little chance of becoming a meal for Shark Reef’s inhabitants. There are no boundaries for imaginations, though, so creating a scenario in which there are relics to hunt for is perfectly appropriate. Once the man-eating hazards are circumvented, there are more bucolic species to

The most photographable scene might be the shark tube, a walkthrough, transparent tunnel that shows how much water and space it takes to provide homes for hammerhead sharks far from the ocean. It’s less complicated to provide an abode for stingrays, and far less dangerous to touch a stingray than a hammerhead shark, so the rays reside in a touch pool.
