Set The Poker Table Instead Of Mom's
Trade the marshmallow salad for haute cuisine and backyard sports for the sports book in Vegas next weekend: For Turkey Day itself, dig into a pumpkin baked Alaska at Brand Steakhouse (at the Monte Carlo, one of the casinos with special deals at our sister site HotelChatter) or arrange for a $185 eight-person dinner, potatoes to pie, to be delivered to your room at the Ritz-Carlton Lake Las Vegas in nearby Henderson. Find roast turkey too bland? Take in turkey tacos and mucho tequila at the Luxor.
Meanwhile VegasChill.com recommends catching David Spade at the Hard Rock (Friday and Saturday, November 28-29) or the Cirque de Soleil show LOVE at the Mirage (Thursday-Sunday, 7 and 10 pm).
Criss Angel's "Believe" show is getting horrible reviews, so So Bad It's Good connoisseurs should enjoy it. Craving a little more wholesome entertainment? Sell a kidney for a ticket to see the Jonas Brothers at MGM Grand on Saturday (3 pm and 8 pm shows), 'cause that's about how much scalpers are asking right now. (We kid: There are still some for $50.)
