Mark's Vegas Favorites

Some of you may have started planning your trip to the TapRooT® Summit. If you have the chance, I’d recommend staying the weekend before AND the weekend after. There is so much fun stuff to do in Las Vegas that you should take the opportunity to have some fun!

To help your planning, let me share the things that I like best in Vegas …

SHOWS

There is an amazing amount of quality entertainment on the Las Vegas Strip. I’ve seen just about every show (after all, we’ve been doing courses in Las Vegas for almost two decades). But some of the recent shows that I liked include:

Human Nature

Saw this one just a couple of days ago. Great Motown show by guys from Australia. I know that that sounds strange … but it works! Short video clip …

Viva Elvis (Cirque du Soleil)

This was lots of fun. See:

Rita Rudner

There’s lots of comedians in Las Vegas. Many are great. I like Jeff Foxworthy (sometimes in Vegas) and Rita Rudner. Here’s part of her Vegas show …

UFC

I also like live UFC fights. We’ll have to check the schedule as the Summit draws near to see if there is one at the Pearl at the Palms or down at Mandalay Bay.

There are lot’s more to choose from. Do a search on the internet and see what you like.

Don’t forget the “free shows” on the strip. There’s the volcano at the Mirage…

The pirate show at Treasure Island …

And the Show in the Sky at Rio.

FOOD

Vegas has great places to eat. One of my favorites – especially for the money – is the Cheesecake Factory.

But that’s just the start. There are so many great restaurants that you could eat at a different place every night for a month and just be getting started.

We’ll be holding the Wednesday night Summit reception at another of my favorite casual restaurants – Margaritaville.

Here’s a view from where our reception will be held…

One more highlight of the Summit fpr the TapRooT® Advisory Board will be dinner at the VooDoo Steak House atop the Rio. Great food and what a view!

SHOPPING

OK – I admit it. I like to shop in Vegas. Maybe it’s all the people you see. And there are the best stores from all over the world. My favorite is the Fashion Show Mall …

They actually have live fashion shows every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday!

OFF THE STRIP ENTERTAINMENT

There more stuff to do off the strip as well. Tours of the Grand Canyon are one of the favorites people tell me about (I haven’t done it yet).

Two of my favorites are driving exotic cars on the Las Vegas Speedway

And shooting machine guns at the The Gun Store – Las Vegas

If that’s not enough to keep you busy and have some fun … there’s lots more!

So come to the 2012 Global TapRooT® Summit in Las Vegas (February 27 – March 2) and learn great ways to improve performance. Then have fun the weekend before or the weekend after (or both) by taking advantage of the great entertainment in Las Vegas!
