Work Hard, Play Hard! - March News
Las Vegas is known as the “Entertainment Capital Of The World” thanks to the people who have made it their life’s work to entertain. Here’s a look at a few of these ambassadors of fun who leave a lasting impression on the city’s more than 41 million visitors each year.
- Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay gives guests the opportunity to get up close and personal with its Animal Encounters Program and one of the experts behind this thrilling experience is General Curator Jack Jewell. Jewell uses his passion and knowledge of the ocean’s inhabitants to educate visitors while throwing in a few once-in-a-lifetime activities along the way. Visitors can choose to personally feed one of the Aquarium’s resident stingrays, sea turtles or zebra sharks.
- No night is complete without an awe-inspiring show put on by artists from around the world who showcase their craft on the stages of Las Vegas. Michael Jackson ONE by Cirque du Soleil at Mandalay Bay incorporates the talents and colorful energy of 63 performers who take the audience on a musical journey honoring one of the greatest entertainers of all time through the use of aerial performances, acrobatics and unparalleled dance moves. Another multi-sensory experience can be found at KÀ inside MGM Grand where an international cast of 80 performers combines acrobatics, aerial stunts and martial arts on the 360-degree rotating stage as they take guests on a heroic journey culminating with a breathtaking battle scene.
- Hecho en Vegas at MGM Grand serves up authentic Sonoran cuisine and the man behind this spicy venue is Executive Chef Reed Osterholt. Chef Reed began his culinary career as a young teenager and turned his passion into a success story by developing the menu and overseeing the daily kitchen operations for the new cantina-style restaurant. Serving up the best in Mexican flare, Hecho’s menu includes hand-made tamales, the 702 Salsa (a spicy blend of fresh tomatoes and spices served with house-made tortilla chips) and chicken, carne asada, pork carnitas and shredded beef Chimichangas.
