Let the Fun Begin
When friends and family come to Las Vegas, they inevitably want to know what to do. No need to fret, we’ve got the lowdown on what’s hot now and what’s tried and true. From comedians to production shows, the best bars and restaurants on the scene to the attractions you must have on your list, we take a look at some of the top experiences and what makes them so special. They'll regard you as a rock star for offering up only the best recommendations, and we're happy to oblige. SUSAN STAPLETON

KÁ Cirque du Soleil is the gold standard in this town with shows ranging from tributes to The Beatles and Michael Jackson to an exploration of a baby’s wanderings and a seductive frolic that mimics a burlesque show. But the nearly 15-year-old KÁ at the MGM Grand features a narrative that’s easy to follow and the typically mind-blowing acrobatics and maneuvers that have become Cirque’s calling card. The story follows a twin brother and sister separated by a battle and their journey to reunite with one another. Along the way, they encounter Wushu martial arts fights, aerial stunts, a wheel of death and Chinese opera as only Cirque can perform. Even the stage is actually two giant mobile platforms that almost become characters themselves as they rotate and shift. Do not miss this Vegas institution. Sa-W, 7 & 9:30 pm. Tickets start at $69.

that’s been presented at the Luxor since 2005. More than 25 years ago, Scott Thompson debuted on “Star Search” and he’s been a showbiz comedy staple ever since. Dubbed “the wackiest red-headed comedian since Lucy,” he can now be found digging through trunks of props each night, riffing on close to 200 items with his unique observations on pop culture, news headlines and more. W-M 8 pm. Tickets start at $40. Luxor, 702.262.4400 luxor.mgmresorts.com/en/entertainment/carrot-top.html Australia’s Human Nature Sings Motown & More These four blokes from Down Under belt out the Motown hits in a show that transports listeners back to the golden age of jukeboxes and soul. Their repertoire includes alltime greats like “Baby I Need Your Lovin’,” “Dancing in the Street,” “Uptight” and “Runaround Sue,” all backed by a live band. The Australian boy band originally got together in 1989 and went on the tour with Celine Dion from 1995-1997. By May 2009, they had grabbed hold of the Las Vegas Strip with a residency backed by Smokey Robinson. You can’t help but stand up, dance and sing along with this charming quartet. Tu-Sa, 7 pm.

By Vicki Arkoff Roy Choi, put his first Kogi BBQ truck on the streets of L.A. 11 years ago to sell drool-worthy Korean tacos for two bucks each. It started a multiethnic comfort food revolution on four wheels. Brick-and-mortar restaurants followed—A-Frame, Alibi Room, Chego!, LocaL, and now, Best Friend at Park MGM Las Vegas, Choi’s first eatery outside of California. Along the way, Choi wrote a cookbook memoir, consulted and appeared in the movie “Chef,” cooked and judged a smorgasbord of food shows and collected major accolades: Food & Wine’s Best New Chef, L.A. Times’ Restaurant of the Year, TIME’s 100 Most Influential People in the World, and more. But Choi’s never really left the streets, not even now that he’s Vegas’ newest celebrity chef and the executive producer of “Broken Bread,” an inspiring documentary series for KCET and Tastemade, spotlighting grassroots efforts that make a difference in communities through food. What made you want to gamble on the Vegas culinary scene by opening Best Friend in Park MGM? MGM reached out to me about the Vegas project and it felt right. I’d been looking for a way to expand because…I don’t know how to describe it except that it’s like when the X-Men and Cyclops shoot out all his rays, and after all the rays are gone you’re completely exhausted and you have to rebuild again. That’s pretty much how I build stuff. Obviously with that composition in life, it’s hard to open restaurant after restaurant after restaurant in New York, Dubai, Hong Kong, Chicago. Not that I don’t want to or won’t, it’s just that I haven’t figured out the formula where I don’t walk away totally exhausted. I thought that Vegas could be a good bridge to figuring that out.
When did your history with Las Vegas begin? I love it, man. I started going to Vegas, like, two years before the restaurant opened, during the development process. I love that nobody judges you in this city. Because it’s a town where you don’t have to hide in a corner to smoke. You don’t have to pretend that you don’t have vices in your life. You don’t have to pretend you woke up at six in the morning when you really woke up at 2 pm. You don’t have to act like you’re something you’re not. That’s why I like Vegas. Everyone accepts you as you are. What makes you feel most at home in Las Vegas. The people who come from Vegas have a dry sense of humor because they’ve seen it all. It’s a very small town when you get to know it. I’ve lived in a lot of small towns. Vegas is a small town in a suit that’s three sizes too big. The framework is huge but when you get into it, it has small-town politics and a small-town personality. Everyone kinda knows each other like in a company town where everyone works in the steel mill—but in Vegas everyone works in hospitality so when you meet a stranger in Vegas you can get right to the shorthand. That’s why I like Vegas. They’re either working as a manager, a bartender, a busser, a runner, a cook or stewarding. Right away you can get to know someone. Vegas has been good to me from day one.

Best Friend Roy Choi’s high-energy Korean barbecue joint at the Park MGM has quickly become a fine dining staple in the area. The facade of a liquor store at the front is the setting for quick bites and counter service. Patrons walk through a pink plastic freezer door to find a rainbow-bright room with plants hanging from the ceiling and a mural created by L.A. artist Phung Huynh. Choi stuffs the menu with his greatest hits, highlighted by slippery shrimp, Kogi short rib tacos, shaking beef saltado, A-Frame OG ribs with hoisin-chili, Commissary carrots, and more from his original restaurants in LA’s Chinatown neighborhood. Open daily, 5 pm to midnight. Park MGM, 888.ROY.CHOI parkmgm.mgmresorts.com/en/restaurants/best-friend.html
