Where I stayed
We had tacos for lunch then went into the 'Coke' and 'M&M' worlds. Two shops that are both 4 storeys with every piece of product merchandise you could ever think of, shirts, keyrings, pens, bags, clothes, stickers and way more. The M&M store had a whole wall of pick 'n mix style dispensers, of every color and shade, flavored M&M you could ever dream of!
We decided we had to go to a show, and after much deliberation and asking about 5 different people their thoughts on which too see, with their advice we decided on the craziest and sexiest Cirque Du Soleil on the strip 'Zumanity'.
We went round looking at all the different casinos, putting in a few dollars here and there to kill time till our show at 10:30.
We got some dinner and headed into New York New York to the theatre. American shows seem to go that extra mile with the whole place being set up to the theme, deep reds and velvets and the staff wearing sexy clothes.
We had awesome seats, pretty central and close to the front. Its started with characters appearing from all directions and interacting with the crowd, including two large identical twins wearing gstrings and bras, giving out chocolate strawberrys and rubbing their boobs and bums in everyones faces etc!
The show itself, included acrobatics, comedy, dance awesome costumes and a wicked stage set up and heaps of cool props and lots of different characters. A contortionist, a midget, girls swimming in a giant martini glass, a drag queen who was hillarious pulling out an unsuspecting old guy and his wife who thought she was really a girl, embarrasing themselves and other members of the crowd. There were people flying over our heads and coming from all angles.
It was an awesome show and we were glad we went cause its probably not something you'd see in NZ at that kind of performance level!
