How do you get Elvis Presley, Madonna and Britney Spears on same stage? Hire impersonators, of course. This show rotates between casinos, so check the website for dates and locations.

Red Square

If you have a private vodka locker ($2,000/year), or you’re willing to pay $200 for a bottle, you can down shots in the Vodka Vault, which is kept at zero degrees. For a warmer (and more affordable) experience, sip drinks at Red Square’s ice bar.
