Music swells in Le Provençal, ricocheting off the murals of the serene French countryside as waiters dressed in traditional peasant attire serenade diners with French and Italian numbers throughout the night. Nestled in the Paris Hotel and Casino, the restaurant introduces diners to the French countryside through steamed mussels, brick-oven flatbreads topped with smoked bacon or capers, and hearty parmesan-crusted chicken. It also prepares its house specialty, the bouillabaisse, and serves it tableside out of a vast cast-iron pot that bubbles with saffron-tomato broth and seafood, like a witch’s caldron but without the accidentally included pointy hat.
Stray Boots is an interactive tour that sets friends and family members loose on an exhilarating, knowledge-fueled undertaking guided by clues, trivia, and riddles. They operate in cities across the country, dividing them into special themed tours that contain the historical sites, local areas of interest, or eccentric child mayors unique to each city. During the explorations, clues point the way to cultural hot spots, which Stray Boots communicates via their official mobile app. At least one player on the team will need an iPhone or Android phone to receive clues, and none of the self-guided tours require previous knowledge of the city. Adventurers play at their own pace—most tours take two to three hours to finish—which allows them to spend more time learning about the city and photographing vibrant fire hydrants for aquacentric scrapbooks.
The Platters, Cornell Gunter's Coasters, and The Marvelettes dish out full servings of cross-generational nostalgia in the form of chart-topping ballads and toe-tappers during nightly concerts at Crown Theater. Known for their powerful love songs, The Platters' triad of seasoned singers urges audiences to slow dance with their seat cushions with enchanting classics such as "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes" before the spotlight shifts to The Coasters, whose raucous, comedy-oriented stylings inject the show with a healthy dose of humor during a set of jovial cuts that includes "Charlie Brown" and "Yakety Yak." The Marvelettes round out the star-studded bill with a set of feel-good Motown measures, stirring listeners with catchy anthems and rhythms more upbeat than a clown who just received a pardon from jury duty. Just off the Strip, the theater is part of Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino and is near other notable establishments such as the VooDoo Lounge and McFadden's Restaurant and Saloon.
