Reservations made yesterday for a hotel room in Las Vegas and a show while we’re there to meet up with my mother-in-law and her sister. The show (Penn & Teller) cost nearly twice what we spent on the room (Luxor, in the Pyramid). Cirque du Soleil shows were out of this world. Why stay at a mid-to-low-range hotel like Luxor? The rooms are perfectly fine, and it frees up more money for other fun things. While, like the last three trips I took to Las Vegas, are likely to include only minimal time in the casino.
