Monti-Licious 5 by Monti

First stop was the Tropicana where we made a complete night of it with dinner, a brief visit to the Mob Experience, and finally to the Gladys Knight Theater currently starring Gladys Knight in A Mic and A Light.

Care Nikki at the Tropicana is only one of the Trop's reinventions and it is beautiful and open 24/7. Niki's will soon include a nightclub. We enjoyed appetizers too numerous to name and entrees that included grilled wild caught salmon, an extensive selection of sushi, and the winner of the evening, chicken fried filet mignon. Don't ask... just enjoy.

I took my friends Rose and Jim for the evening. I like seeing things through their perspective which sometimes makes for a better column. More importantly they are wonderful friends and the time we spend together is fun, precious, genuine, etc., etc., etc.

Now let's get to Gladys Knight. The show is Gladys, her story, her life, was completely sold out. She has a great fan base and although she didn't hit the high notes, she was purely Gladys Knight.

The Gladys Knight Theater is one of the last of the wonderful showrooms in Las Vegas. I had seen the Folies Bergere at the Tropicana 10 or 15 times over the years and even attended the closing night of that iconic review. The showroom has tried many things following the departure of the Folies. For a while the talk around town was the Tropicana might try a Latin theme with such personalities as Paul Rodriquez or even Gloria Estefan. Just a rumor.
It's clear to say a tourist or a local could make a day of it at the Tropicana. You won't be disappointed.

The week took me from one end of the Las Vegas Strip to the other where I went to the Riviera to see the Rat Pack and Sandy Hackett. The Rat Pack has been a Las Vegas favorite from the time Sinatra and the boys created it to this current show. I think I've seen them all, too. Sandy Hackett plays the part of Joey Bishop in this latest version, but earlier shows with the same theme were produced by David Cassidy and Dick Feeney.

Of course you can't make a stop at the Riviera without trying a meat pie or the fish and chips at Queen Victoria's Pub. Always outstanding.

In La La Land, Lindsay Lohan is supposedly going to play the mob princess and John Travolta reported as John Gotti Jr., in a new movie. How's that for casting? Actually Lindsay has a great resemblance to Victoria Gotti, and as I/ve been a a fan of John Travolta since working
with him in Saturday Night Fever.

Watched TV Land Awards last night where John Travolta and his Welcome Back Kotter crew received an award as well as Michael J. Fox and Facts of Life, and Bill Cosby and his TV family. All these men have had outstanding careers. This was one of those rare awards shows that was enjoyable.

JUST IN! Slton John is returning to The Colosseum at Caesars Palace for 18 shows on select dates from 9/28/11 to 10/23/11. Tickets for the new show "MILLION DOLLAR PIANO" go on sale April 25. Contact TicketMaster or
Caesars box office for more information.

A typical week in Las Vegas? You decide.
