The Tastes of Summer

Mediterranean-themed restaurant updates its stellar food and drink menu for the season

Last year’s opening of Cathédrale at Aria was one of the culinary high points of the year for Strip visitors, a gorgeous space with a sensational Mediterranean menu. And chef Jason Hall, now joined by executive chef Brett LaReau, have made the experience even better with a new seasonal menu highlighting the flavors of Southern France, Italy and Greece.

Cathédrale’s blue, curtain-lined entry leads you down a short corridor to the restaurant, featuring a long bar and plenty of table seating. Once seated, treat yourself to one of the most distinct cocktails in Southern Nevada: The Quarternary, a blend of Ketel One vodka, Plymouth gin, Dolin dry vermouth and orange bitters, all finished off with a Castelvetrano olive and accompanied with some Kaluga caviar—all served in an ice block that accommodates both the glass and the bottle containing your cocktail.

Now that your taste buds are primed, get some apps and salads for the whole table. King salmon carpaccio and hamachi crudo are both excellent examples of raw fish done right, while the Tomatoes Mykonos salad is deeply satisfying with its blend of red onion, cucumber,

Kalamata olives and feta. If you’re a fan of spreads, you’ll want to try the Mediterranean meze, a trio consisting of hummus, tzatziki and red pepper feta, accompanied by fluffy, fresh-baked pita.

Time for the main course! If you have a large group with large appetites, the 48-ounce Mishima Reserve wagyu tomahawk, pictured, is Instagram-worthy, flambéed at your table with Woodford Reserve Baccarat and accompanied with spring onions and Arlington potatoes. If you order this in advance, you can have it custom-stamped.

Seafood options include a Maine lobster rigatoni, this version made with squid ink pasta, heirloom cherry tomatoes and fino verde basil, and succulent Moroccan prawns, accompanied by cucumber, cherry tomatoes, parsley and a red wine vinaigrette.

Cathédrale’s dessert menu may be adjusted over the years, but one seems certain to always be there: The Sorrento Lemon, worthy of the Netflix show Is It Cake?, with its combination of yuzu granita, calamansi gel and almond cake resembling a lemon, right down to the little green leaf. –Ken Miller

One of hip-hop and rap’s biggest superstars gets his wax likeness added to Strip attraction

Las Vegas is the city where you can see all your favorite music stars— both live onstage and re-created in wax at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas. The attraction’s latest lineup is a who’s who of the hottest music stars of the moment, and the most recent addition is arguably the biggest: Post Malone.

The figure, replicating the look Post Malone wore for his musical guest debut on Saturday Night Live in 2022, is dressed in a black Tom Ford suede jacket, turtleneck jumper, black jeans, cowboy boots and crystallized belt. Additional details, all donated by the performer himself, include Chrome Hearts hoop earrings and ring. The level of detail, right down to the hair on his mole, resulted in a figure so lifelike that Post Malone said, upon seeing it, said, “I literally thought that was a person!”

Another detail that will have his fans giddy is the beer-filled red cup he’s holding. And fans can “challenge” him to a game of neon beer pong as part of a new experience.

“Post Malone’s impact on music and pop culture is undeniable, and we’re thrilled to bring his dynamic persona to Madame Tussauds Las Vegas,” said Linsey Stiglic, marketing manager at Madame Tussauds

Las Vegas, in a press release. “Post Malone is having quite the year for iconic collabs—Beyoncé, Taylor Swift and Morgan Wallen, to name a few. We’re proud to have worked with the multigenre artist on his incredible new wax figure.”

Joining Post Malone at the attraction are:

• Reggaeton star J Balvin, wearing a floral three-piece suit (a perfect re-creation of his 2021 Moschino Met Gala ensemble).

• Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, the most tattooed wax likeness in Madame Tussauds’ history—more than 100.

• Rapper Jack Harlow, decked out in the custom-designed suit he wore in his music video for “Churchill Downs (feat. Drake).”

• Three-time Grammy winning rapper Megan Thee Stallion, who also has a figure at the Madame Tussauds in New York.

• Puerto Rican singer Bad Bunny, posed in front of a purple semi decked out with flames (inspired not only for the cover for El Último Tour Del Mundo, but by his outfit, hair and jewelry from the 2021 American Music Awards). –Ken Miller

Refresh and Renew

This Strip spa’s treatments get your body ready for the next round

While you’re in Las Vegas indulging a bit (maybe a bit too much and paying the price?), consider an indulgence that helps you feel amazing. Qua Baths & Spa at Caesars Palace offers plenty of treatments that are sure to get you ready for your next round of partying.

Signature treatments focus on achieving certain results and giving you a total spa experience. For instance, the Qua Signature Hourglass creates a blend of

skincare, massage and body treatments that is customized for your needs. It’s available in a two- or three-hour version.

A favorite for many Las Vegas guests is the Qua Signature Leg Recovery Ritual. For 100 minutes, you’ll get hot and cold therapies, hot stones and even a caffeinated leg mask, all designed to help reduce swelling and inflammation in the feet and legs. It even includes lower back treatment. If you’ve been hiking all over the

Strip (and you can seriously walk miles every day here), you’re sure to appreciate this treatment.

But that’s only a small part of what’s in store here. In addition to a variety of massages and facials (some designed for couples), you’ll find hot and cold saunas, the Roman baths and the Arctic Room, all which are sure to refresh you. –Nina King Caesars Palace. 702.731.7822

Pretty in Pink

Escape the heat to some major fun at this indoor amusement park

Need to keep the kids occupied for hours? How about some kidlike fun for you adults? Or maybe you just need to run around and scream at the top of your lungs. Whatever your deal, there’s one place you can do all that—Adventuredome

Yes, under the hard-to-miss pink dome on the Las Vegas Strip lies a 5-acre amusement park stuffed wall-to-wall with amusing entertainment. If you like roller coasters, you’re in luck! The Canyon Blaster is the world’s only indoor, double-loop, double-corkscrew coaster that reaches speeds of 55 mph; El Loco drops riders 90 feet and then twists and turns while pulling vertical G’s; and, more G’s can flip your stomach on Sling Shot, where riders are shot up in the air and back down again. More rides, even some fit for the small kiddos, including bumper cars and a giant carousel, includes the out-of-control pirate ship that swings and hangs in the air while eliciting exciting screams from its riders.

Enjoy various movies in 4D inside the FX Theater or the Angry Birds Experience inside the Extreme Ride Theater. More fun and frolic awaits inside the arcade filled with all the latest video games or check out the classic arcade with games you loved as a child. Get vertical on the rock-climbing wall or lose your lunch with a bungee jump! Free clown shows are back inside the midway, where you’ll also find rows and rows of classic carnival games.

For a cool experience, check out Adventuredome on Friday and Saturday evenings for Neon Nights, where rides, attractions and the midway light up in cool neon colors.

Let’s All Go to the Movies

Downtown property bar’s new cocktail menu creates film-inspired fun in a glass

We all look forward to restaurants refreshing their menus seasonally, but did you know that bars and lounges do that, too? Case in point: Vegas Vickie’s at Circa Resort & Casino. The downtown hangout recently released a new seasonal menu, inspired by movies and actors that we all know and love.

Each cocktail not only has great ingredients, but also a tongue-in-cheek name, like the Grapes of Wrath, which combines such items as Remy 1748 cognac, Ramazotti Apertivo Rosato, sparkling wine, blackberry and rock melon syrup, creating a fresh drink with great depth. The Smokin!!!! Old Fashioned features Russell’s Reserve 10-year bourbon, plus demerara sugar and orange oil surrounded by a swirl of hickory smoke.

Some of the other delicious drinks to look for include The Dude, pictured, with Johnny Walker Black Label scotch that is infused with coffee, Benedictine liqueur and boba. The Midnight Express-o Martini adds a twist to the popular cocktail, with Absolut Vanilia vodka, Kahlua espresso and absinthe. If you like the tropical flavors, check out the profile of Nobody Puts Rum in a Corner, with Mount Gay Eclipse rum, pineapple, banana liqueur, orgeat, tiki bitters and lime. Oh, baby!

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Negroni mixes Tanqueray 10 gin, Campari, sweet vermouth, Avera chocolate bitters and dark creme de cacao to create a delicious sip that might even pass for dessert! –Nina King

The Magic Continues

Magician’s popular show extended for foreseeable future

Family-friendly shows in Las Vegas don’t get much better than The Magic of Jen Kramer, where its star wins every audience over with a million-dollar smile and an enthusiasm that’s simply infectious. And her host property recently announced that the magician, who was once named Female Magician of the Year by the International Magicians Society, will continue to perform at the property for the forseeable future.

“Jen has become part of our Westgate family over these last six years,”

said Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino president and general manager Cami Christensen in a news release.

“It has been a wonderful relationship and we can’t wait for our guests to experience the exciting new illusions in her show.”

Kramer herself said she is “thrilled, honored and excited to be extending my residency at the legendary Westgate Las Vegas and sharing innovative new illusions with our audiences.

It’s been an amazing six years so far, and I can’t wait to make many more

magical memories with the wonderful team at Westgate.”

That means many more shows with Kramer doing what she does best—interacting with audiences as she manipulates cards, makes drinks appear as if from nowhere, bringing smiles to the faces of numerous volunteers and generally making everyone feel just a bit better than they did coming in. –Ken Miller

Terrific Tandem

Don’t miss the cocktails and opulence at two Bellagio hot spots

A love for cocktails and a desire to drink in style are the only prerequisites for Club Privé and The Vault at Bellagio. Don’t be intimidated, though—plainly speaking, both lounges are just darn cool experiences.

Let’s start with Club Privé, Bellagio’s high-limit lounge. “Although Club Privé is home to Bellagio’s high-limit lounge, all guests are welcome to enjoy the elevated bar experience,” says Emily McDonald, director of beverage at Bel-

lagio. “Guests can revel in our opulent bar, savor a glass of whiskey or sit back in Club Privé’s secluded lounge and relish the fine cigar selection.”

“The cigar program at Club Privé has an extensive list of offerings that range in the richness of cigars from light-bodied to more robust,” says Craig Schoettler, executive director of beverage at Bellagio. “Some of our top offerings include Montecristo, Cohiba and Romeo y Julieta. It’s truly a well-balanced list for

every occasion. If guests come before dinner, we’d recommend a lighter-bodied style such as the Montecristo No. 2. If guests come post-dinner and are looking to wind down in one of the most luxurious spaces, I would introduce them to our robusto cigars and pair it with a nice glass of Scotch.”

Club Privé is a beautiful place to hang out and enjoy one of its specialty cocktails or a fine whiskey pulled from its rich whiskey program. The décor is

The Vault

lush with stunning chandeliers, and the seating is plush and plentiful. Order the apricot-forward Hotel Nacional cocktail with white rum, apricot brandy, simple syrup, pineapple and lime. Fans of lemon should try the Speakerboxx with tequila blanco, Small Hand Foods gum syrup, dry vermouth, Lo-Fi Gentian amaro, soda and fresh lemon juice.

We’ll tell you a secret, too: Across from the entrance to Club Privé, look to the right and you’ll see gaming tables and an alcove with a door and a small placard with a “V” on it. This is The Vault, a true speakeasy with one of the most impressive cocktail programs in the city. (Another revealed secret: search Instagram for The Vault and how to gain access).

“The Vault at Bellagio is its own little oasis within Las Vegas,” Schoettler says. “Guests can experience high-quality cocktails and bites while tucked away in one of the most beautiful spaces. The Vault carries unique spirits from a historical moment in time. We created an experience where guests can enjoy inspirational and experimental cocktails using spirits sourced from throughout the 20th century. Once the spirit is gone, it’s gone forever. … An extensive amount of research and

education has gone into creating The Vault’s beverage program to present a best-in-class cocktail destination. Our mixologists have gone through an extraordinary amount of training to learn more about vintage spirits, been given the tools and guidance to craft bespoke cocktails, and, of course, mastered The Vault’s famed signature cocktails.”

Two of those signature cocktails include the Rose Romance with Stoli Elit vodka, St-Germain, Billecart-Salmon brut rose, dragon fruit purée, simple syrup and lemon juice (serves two), and the Vapor Trail, a smoked cocktail with Japanese whiskey, smoked demerara and Angostura bitters.

Perusing The Vault’s menu, you’ll find cocktails labeled “MP” for “market price.” Yes, these cocktails are pricey but are always an experience and use some of the rarest, most special spirits. “We label vintage cocktails as market price because we are sourcing our spirits from former years,” Schoettler says. “Once a spirit is gone, we find another product from history. For example, we could serve Bacardi from the ’30s this week, then the next could be Bacardi from the ’40s or ’60s.” –Kiko Miyasato

Friends With Benefits

Pete Miceli

Bartender is loyal to one bar in Las Vegas

I’ve interviewed a lot of bartenders in this city and a common thread among them is that the 1988 movie Cocktail inspired them to bartend. But not Pete Miceli, bartender at Golden Gate. He’s the first one inspired by bartender Sam Malone, from the classic TV show Cheers. “I watched the show growing up and I feel like working at Golden Gate is the closest way I’ll become Sam,” he says.

Miceli was also inspired to bartend after a trip to Las Vegas. “My first trip to

Vegas, I saw guys flair bartending at Carnaval Court and I fell in love with it,” says the New York native. So back home in Staten Island, he got a job flair bartending at TGI Fridays; in 2013 he brought his skills back to Vegas and got a job at Golden Gate, the one and only bartending job he’s had in Vegas.

“I really enjoy working here because everybody knows everybody,” he says. “I’m not just a number, not just a brick in the wall. This is very much a family feel.”

• Libation • The Old Fashioned

You can’t get much more classic than the Old Fashioned. The version at Bar Prohibition! is mixed with bourbon or rye whiskey (whatever the drinker prefers), simple syrup, bitters and a splash of water. For that extra touch, Miceli flames an orange rind over the cocktail to give it that slight citrus note. –KM

You can find Miceli working his craft—he no longer flairs but makes the classics—at Bar Prohibition! “I’ve always said I’m not much of an innovator when it comes to making cocktails, but I enjoy the classics and I enjoy making them right,” he says. And he loves serving them to the regulars that frequent his bar. Yes, even though we’re in a tourist town, Bar Prohibition! is a favorite of locals, too. It’s a bar where … everybody knows your name. –Kiko Miyasato

Enjoy a delectable dinner with a view at VooDoo Steak

In 1995, just five years after Rio Las Vegas opened its doors, it built a witchy steakhouse on its 50th floor. The personality of VooDoo Steak explored the kitschy side of voodoo, pushing the mystical practice in décor and feel. Nearly two decades later, VooDoo Steak still sits pretty on the top of the property, and while the voodoo theme no longer a focal point, the steakhouse team is still creating magic in the kitchen, helmed by chef Matt Nguyen.

The views from your table, or roomy, cushy booth, are nothing short of divine. The whole city lays before your eyes, especially captivating if you make your reservation after 7 p.m. and watch the sun set and the lights turn on. The whole room is dimly lit with jazz music floating through the air, giving romantic vibes, but combined with the upscale design, there’s a slick, modern feel to the restaurant, too.

It’s summer, so kick it o with the perfect seasonal cocktail, the Strawberry Fields, a heavy pour of raspberry vodka, Cointreau, Prosecco and strawberry puree—nectarous and refreshing. You’ll have more than a dozen other specialty cocktails to choose from.

The menu at VooDoo Steak is not huge, but it is mighty when it comes to each dish’s flavor and presentation. Start with a classic steakhouse appetizer like crab cakes with green goddess dressing, shrimp cocktail, wedge salad or French onion soup. But don’t sleep on chef Nguyen’s more creative openers like the braised short

rib bruschetta. Your taste buds will go gaga over the petite pieces of bread layered with tru e ricotta, fennel citrus salad, plump orange slices and melt-in-your-mouth short rib.

Artisan steaks come from family farms in Hastings, Neb., and are 21- to 28-day wetaged with classic cuts like ribeye, filet, bone-in ribeye and prime flat iron. Splurge on a 12-ounce Mishima Reserve domestic wagyu beef or the shareable 32-ounce tomahawk. Non-red-meat-eaters can find plenty of entrees to please the palate, from seared scallops and lamb chops to salmon and chicken marsala.

Vegetarians don’t fret. We would be remiss to not mention chef Nguyen’s plant-based cooking skills—this man conjures up crazy delicious creations. Make mention of your dietary restriction when making your reservation. While vegetarian dishes are not on the menu except for a few side dishes (the whipped potatoes are heaven incarnate!), this go-around the chef blew away this writer with some of the best vegetarian recipes ever tasted. The dishes including a potato and cashew soup, quinoa salad with fresh mozzarella and aged balsamic and a tofu and risotto dish topped with a decadent

Short rib bruschetta

cream sauce made with Boursin cheese and mascarpone.

End the meal with something sweet and classic like the crème brûlée served with fresh berries and whipped cream and a thin layer of torched granulated sugar making for that perfect spoon crack into the creamy custard.

Guests of the restaurant have access to a huge patio that overlooks the entire city, so make sure to step outside before or after dinner to enjoy the sights.

hitmakers Jodeci parlay a return to the stage into a sold-out Vegas residency

The first weekend of Jodeci—The Show, The After Party, The Vegas Residency in mid-March couldn’t have turned out better. The baddest boys of ’90s R&B did not disappoint the le-

gions of ladies who turned the House of Blues shows into sold-out affairs. K-Ci and Jojo are still on point with smooth, emotive singing delivery. DeVanté Swing still causes audible

audience swooning when tickling the ivories, and Mr. Dalvin’s capacity for rap-lyric recall has not diminished.

That may be due to the decade-long warm-up leading to The Vegas Residency after the four elements of Jodeci took an extended layoff. It’s been 33 years since they burst onto the charts with debut album Forever My Lady, scoring hits with “Stay,” “Come & Talk to Me” and the No. 1 title track. They took New Jack Swing to the next level under the direction of production wiz Swing, whose audacious early moves led to Jodeci being signed.

The North Carolina-born prodigy made a pilgrimage to Minnesota as a teen and made attempts to infiltrate Prince’s Paisley Park. The mission failed, but Swing’s determination was strengthened. Back home he began working with Jojo, who had been involved in the ’80s gospel music recording industry with brother K-Ci.

K-Ci had a preternaturally developed tenor voice that made him the focal point of Little Cedric and the Hailey Singers. It was a no-brainer to begin working with him. Jojo, Swing and K-Ci each donated a syllable from their names to “Jodeci” before Swing’s brother Mr. Dalvin came on board. Swing saw harmonizing possibilities. Four voices could be multitracked into eight, or 16. A distinctive sound.

And there would be four bodies moving on stage, the perfectly even number that drives the four-on-thefloor dance beat. Jojo would prove to be especially adept at interpreting lyrics and sentiment with his body, but first Jodeci had to get discovered. Swing took the initiative and drove the singers to New York and Uptown Records. Rapper Heavy D heard their music and turned them onto Uptown founder Andre Harrell. A recording contract quickly followed.

Jodeci would become the flip side of the image coin to Boys II Men and New Edition. The vibe would be expressed via album titles such as Diary of a Mad Band and The Show, The After Party, The Hotel from 1993 and 1995, respectively. The bad boys were lovermen in the tradition of Barry White and Teddy Pendergrass, but the stage shows were spectacles of shirtless seduction and sensuality.

The group fractured after album three, with K-Ci and Jojo racking up hits as a duo. A reunion resulted in 2015 album The Past, the Present, the Future, and a 2022 slot opening for New Edition warmed Jodeci up enough for a 2023 headlining tour. A dream gig headlining the Hollywood Bowl preceded the resumption of The Vegas Residency this month. The bad boys are riding a riptide of reunion success that doesn’t show any sign of slowing down.

est—and most unique—drumming gigs in Las Vegas. You can find him and his bandmates onstage with three cobalt-colored men, all making visual and auditory delights in the show Blue Man Group at Luxor. The long-running production continues its reign as one of the most thought-provoking and purely entertaining shows in the city, and Verderame has been there since day one.

was in fifth grade; I still have it. It’s a 1948 Leedy, a classic drum set. I got into classical percussion, played in the Philadelphia Youth Orchestra and went to Penn State for a few years, but all along I was still playing drums. I started getting bored of classical music, as much as I loved it there was a level to it that—there’s a lot of counting bars and resting—and you have to love it and I didn’t like all of it. So I thought about it and wanted to play drum set instead, so

I transferred to the University of Miami,

finished my undergrad there and lived in Miami for 10 years. I played music for Latin and pop tours, toured with other musicians, played with the New World Symphony, played in blues bands, wedding bands.

got a call from a friend who already played drums for Blue Man Group in Chicago and he told me to come there to check out the show and that they were auditioning for a new show in Vegas. So I flew to Chicago to check the show out. I had never seen it and

took an audition in Chicago in 1999 and got to the second round in New York. I still vividly remember that audition process, it was so, so awesome and so unique. I got the gig and moved out (to Vegas) February 2000; showed up on Super Bowl Sunday.

I’m still doing this. It’s insane that I still enjoy it! This is such a unique thing to do as a drummer and musician. It is just so unique.

collaborators of Blue Man Group) came up with some of the grooves, he wanted it to sound urban, organic, earthy, a sense of something else. So he added something to the drum kits that made it more unique. It’s just very di erent than any other gig. The interaction of how we play music and what the Blue Men do onstage is incredibly unique. That’s part of what makes the show di erent every night—it’s got shaded nuances.

I’ve been asked about this show for so

many years. Now, that being said, the show has been, at its strongest, about connection and collaboration, fundamentally. You can just let the show wash over you with the beautiful colors, beautiful videos and spectacle of guys hitting PVC pipes and making music of it. You can just be there. But there is more to it and that’s why I think it’s lasted this long. It goes deeper than just entertainment. … In order for a show to run this long and retain its artistic quality and still make money—that’s heavy. It completes the objective of a good, quality show and something that has meaning and purpose.

Tall-in-talent Kevin Hart reigns over his own laugh-outloud kingdom

Kevin Hart has been at Resorts World Las Vegas before. He recorded his 2023 comedy special, Kevin Hart: Reality Check, at Resorts World Theatre, where he shared his opinions on body modification, LeBron James, the metaverse and the advantages of walking onstage with

a Louisville Slugger. His name emanates from Resorts World’s giant tower-side video display, and enthusiastic audiences can summarize their experience in one phrase Hart repeats during his shows: “Somebody’s gotta say it.”

Somebody’s gotta say, “We’re entertaining the crazy too much,” and, “The crazy are only going to get crazier.” Somebody’s gotta say, “Crazy sneaks up on you. Look at Will Smith, that just happened.”

And somebody’s gotta say something about a relative calling them to announce that they think they might be a dog.

Sometimes, Hart says, he feels like he lives in the crazy. Being at the epicenter of the Kevin Hart Nation, he most certainly does. Hart produces, directs and stars in movies and streaming series at a pace that would exhaust entertainment industry A-listers half

his age. He oversees his comedy platform LOL Network, his Hartbeat production company that focuses on box o ces, and Hartbeat Ventures, which supplies capital to promising media and lifestyle companies. Hart, in short, has energy to burn and multiple outlets to direct it in. Stand-up is his foundation, though. He’ll be at Resorts World Friday, then brings his current Acting My Age Tour to Edmonton, Alberta, for the Great Outdoors Comedy Festival, then returns to Resorts World Sunday. Hart can’t stop, won’t stop. That might be in part due to his having a hard time getting his comedy career o the ground in his native Philadelphia. Hart moved to New York City and honed his craft at Massachusetts venues. A guest appearance in Judd Apatow’s early-ca-

8 p.m. July 12 & 14, starting at $89 plus tax and fee. axs.com

reer television series Undeclared in 2002 led to a succession of fi lm roles with increasing visibility: Scary Movie 3, Soul Plane and The 40-Year Old Virgin. Hart undertook his fi rst major comedy tour and released his fi rst stand-up special, I’m a Grown Little Man, in 2009. His career exploded after that, with Hart seemingly taking on every project he could. Think Like a Man was a major hit in 2012, begetting a Vegas-based sequel. His Real Husbands of Hollywood satire of reality shows was successful enough to be renewed for several seasons, and in 2018 Hartbeat released its fi rst feature fi lm, Night School It’s almost as exhausting trying to keep up with Hart’s activities as it must be to live like him. He has the motivation and the ideas to keep his empire growing, so he does. The growth provides enough confidence for Hart to shrug o criticism leveled at him by other rival comics like Katt Williams during interviews. The second season of his latest streaming series, Die Hart, is streaming on Prime, and he has that Louisville Slugger in case someone really, really doesn’t like what he’s gotta say and invades his stage.

Spice Wannabe—The Spice Girls Tribute celebrates the most successful girl group

took the world by storm after the release of “Wannabe” in June 1996, kicking male-dominated Britpop bands to the curb in the U.K. and peppering pop charts with girl power anthems and five-part harmonies. They’ve had two reunion tours since, playing three dates in Las Vegas during the first. They seem ripe for a residency, but visitors to Vegas don’t have to wait to spice up their lives, thanks to tribute show Spice Wannabe—The Spice Girls Tribute, which returns to Excalibur for its third engagement after a tour that concluded with a date at Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort in North Carolina.

“It was amazing,” said creator/ co-producer Casey McConachie, who plays Emma “Baby Spice” Bunton in the show, in a post-tour phone interview. “It was such a good show. It was probably our biggest crowd that we’ve had so far.”

McConachie left little to chance when she first brought Spice Wannabe to Excalibur in July. The show debuted at South Point last year and sold out at the Silverton in February. The cast experimented with an adults-only theme, then went on tour before launching the current family-friendly version during the summer. “The hype around it was already building and growing,” said McConachie. “July was amazing. First night, second, every show … it was so much energy, so many people coming out to see it because it was a limited engagement. We didn’t know if we were going to stay past July, so people were coming and dressing up.”

McConachie was in middle school when the Spice Girls went into heavy rotation on MTV. She and her friends assumed Spice Girls personas, with McConachie as the Baby Spice of the group, of course. She went into enter-

tainment, becoming a Britney Spears impersonator and starting her own business, FantaSea Productions, that booked mermaid-costumed performers for events.

The insider experiences of performing in tribute shows and casting talent placed her in position to expand on an idea written down in a notebook into a concept during the doldrum days of the pandemic. “It’s been years in the making,” said McConachie. “Just doing a one-act with Britney, it’s a lot. Hiring out the dancers, costumes, setlists,

everything. … The biggest challenge was finding the right talent to cast.”

She needed Wannabes who looked like Spice Girls, could sing and could dance. McConachie found them. “The little kids are watching us, not understanding we’re a tribute show,” she said. “They think that we are the group. It’s really cute to see how they’re screaming at the top of their lungs.”

Adults scream as well, with some coming as their favorite group member or character from the Spice World movie. “That’s why we named it Spice Wannabe,” said McConachie. “We make it a point in the show to ask who came. We point the people out who dressed up, like ‘Which Spice Girl did you want to be growing up? Where are the Sporties? Where are the Gingers?’ They stand up and cheer.”

Criss Angel MINDFREAK is a celebration of magic, life and dedication to craft

Is the future of magic in Criss Angel’s hands? And feet? Las Vegas’ master of the mystic arts is a pioneer who infused a hard rock attitude and presentation into a magic show, but his main passion as of late, apart from Criss Angel MINDFREAK and his family, has been mixed martial arts. Angel, who has been training with former UFC fighter Jake Ellenberger and boasts former champion Frank Mir as his coach, obtained his purple belt on his birthday in December.

He celebrated on that day with what has become an annual charity event, named for his cancer-surviving son. It’s no illusion that Johnny Christopher looks happy and healthy, with dark hair growing past his shoulders. He underwent treatment as Angel was preparing and rehearsing Criss Angel MINDFREAK, which only made the magician double down on being completely focused.

He was well enough to sing along to “I Was Made for Lovin’ You” at one of Kiss’ End of the Road Farewell Tour concerts at Madison Square Garden in early December, and has become effective as a spokesman for the Johnny Christopher Foundation. Angel, meanwhile, can apply his finely honed focus to MMA. His philosophy: Try to get 1 percent better every day.

That works as a way of life for a magician as well. Angel honed his craft for years with the fervor of an aspiring rock star. He would have been fine being an actual rock star, but magic set him apart from the hordes of bands fighting for success like crabs crawling over each other to escape the bucket.

He conquered television with Mindfreak, then moved his operations from New York to Las Vegas like the Corleone family did in The Godfather. The lure of being a Vegas headliner was an offer he couldn’t refuse, and Angel began his embryonic journey at Luxor in a show produced in collaboration with Cirque du Soleil.

Criss Angel Believe was the prelude to Criss Angel MINDFREAK, with Angel processing everything he learned, refining his act into the personification of his magical spirit. The sound and video systems were as technically cutting edge as possible. A repertoire of tricks was developed to the point of being majestic miracles. He already throws an MMA move or two into his shows, but don’t be surprised if Angel becomes a mixed martial magician for his next act. The possibilities must be dancing in his head already, but in the meantime Criss Angel fans can settle for his new podcast, Talking Junkies Mir and Ellenberger have already been guests backstage at Criss Angel MINDFREAK, where episodes are recorded and friends such as Flavor Flav, Keith Urban, Sugar Ray Leonard, Mike Tyson, Paul Stanley and Mix Master Mike from The Beastie Boys have been guests.

But perhaps Angel’s favorite future guest might be his mother, Dimitra Sarantakos, who attended his Dec. 22 show at age 88. She’s living the longevity that Angel can expect in his career, and his son can hope to expect with the magic of a father’s love.
