Las Vegas Day 2

We woke up pretty early and got ourselves ready for our day in Vegas. The first thing we did was head to the lobby to speak with the concierge service so we could buy tickets for the 9:30pm showing of KA by Cirque Du Soleil. Then we walked the strip to the Tix 4 Tonight booth. This is where they sell discounted tickets for most all of the shows in Vegas and some restaurants. Noah and I bought Carrot Top tickets for 50% off and restaurant discount coupons for a Brazilian Buffet.
We then headed over to the Luxor to turn in our receipt for actual tickets for the 8pm Carrot Top comedy show. We were able to get really good seats right in the middle. We grabbed some brunch and wondered around the inside the Luxor to check it out. We found the Criss Angle's store and a lot of his motorcycles on display. We then walked through New York New York. We sat and did a little people watching. It was fun to see how much it really is like downtown Manhattan(we spent a week in Manhattan about 4 years ago). Noah and I proceeded to walk on the strip and walk through almost all of the themed Casinos. After much walking we rode the monorail back to our hotel and rest before our show.
Carrot Top has been a comedian for some time and uses props in his shows. He was very funny and our seats were excellent. He did bring up some very inapporiate topics since as he stated "this is Vegas what do you expect". Overall we laughed a lot and would enjoy seeing him again.After the show I thought we were headed back to our room but Noah wanted to take me to the Venetian for a romantic glide down the Grand Canal in an authentic Venetian gondola. We floated beneath bridges, beside cafes, under balconies and through the vibrant Venetian streetscape as your singing gondolier took us on a relaxing romantic ride. He told us to kiss under every bridge and even recited a Love poem for us. It was the perfect way to end our day.
