MyVEGAS brought new rewards on board for Vdara, the non-gambling, non-smoking hotel in CityCenter. This writer was especially happy to see a spa discount offering a 80-minute service for the price of a 50-minute booking. Hopefully, this will spur similar rewards at other properties and, maybe, a complete freebie at a higher loyalty point tier in the future.

Caesars Entertainment has taken to the casino in an effort to drum up business for the High Roller observation wheel. Last week, Flamingo, The Quad and other Caesars casinos began issuing free High Roller tickets to any player that received a suited 21 at the blackjack tables. That means any time the first two cards dealt to a player are†an Ace and a 10, Jack, Queen or King in the same suit (diamonds, hearts, clubs, spades), the player would receive a coupon for a free ticket to ride. The coupons†are non-transferable (in theory, not so much in application) so whoever the ticket is†made out to has to use it.
Front row seats to Book of Mormon might not be in everybodyís budget, but did you know you can check out The Smith Center for free? By check out we donít mean a full-fledged show, but zero dollars buys you an interesting docent-led tour of one of the most beautiful buildings in Las Vegas.
A short cab ride from The Strip or an even shorter one from Fremont Street, The Smith Center is one of the most interesting and unique buildings in Las Vegas. Home to Symphony Park, Reynolds Hall and Bowman Pavilion which houses the Troesh Studio Theater and Cabaret Jazz, the campus glorifies the unique architecture of the Art Deco age.
Downtown's Container Park is home to restaurants, bars, shopping, a playground, and even a fire-spewing preying mantis. Now, the DCP (we all call it that, right?) wants to add drive-in movie theater to the roster. Well, minus the drive-in part including the cars and those speaker boxes that attach to the window, too. More like a pedestrian-in theater, we guess. Where were we?
Oh, yes. If you haven't heard yet, Thursdays have become Movie Night at Container Park. Held under the stars beginning at 9 p.m., a limited number of blankets and outdoor chairs are even available on a first-come, first-served basis. Guests, however, are free to BYOB(lankets) and chairs, if they want to ensure they have 'em.
The weekly lineup is as follows:

Tucked away behind the many doors of Rose.Rabbit.Lie. at The Cosmopolitan is The Study. A room that easily seems to have been transported from any number of stately manors across the pond. That is, however, until the magic dragon and his dog show up. Then, you're pretty sure you're in a room transported from any number of stately manors across Tim Burton's filmography.
It's in this intimate venue where you'll find the best free Vegas attraction on The Strip, Breakfast at Piffany's. Offered at midnight Wednesday through Saturday, the late-night production is like knowing in advance when that hilarious drunk guy is going to climb atop the bar and cause a spectacle. Except, the guy's not drunk. He's a dragon. With a chihuahua.

As MGM Resorts and PlayStudios continue to add more games, more rewards and more players to their ever-growing, uber popular MyVEGAS Facebook game, it begs the question of what (if anything) can they not link to the game.
MyVEGAS has been steadily adding new partners. Sugar Factory, the Las Vegas Monorail, Wolfgang Puck, House of Blues and Vdara have all climbed on board. Are there others on the way? It's probably a safe bet.

VegasChatter reader Sully appreciated our coverage of the new High Roller observation wheel at The Linq and shared a video to add to our ongoing reports. If youíre wondering just how slowly this wheel goes around, check out his time-lapse video above.
Remember, this isnít an amusement park ride; it is an observation wheel. A quickie trip around wouldnít allow riders a very good chance to take in the sights of the Las Vegas Strip. Each of the 28 cabins holds up to 40 people and the trip around takes about a half an hour, allowing for plenty of observation time and photo ops.

The South Point is back with another free event for families to enjoy. The arena presents the 2014 Arabian Breeders World Cup this Thursday, April 10 through Sunday, April 13. The event opens to the public starting at 9 a.m. each day.
A panel of international judges will include the best of the best from the Arabian horse world including several notable breeders and horsemen. Vico Rocco from Brazil, Peter Gamlin from the United Kingdom and Irina Stigler from Russia will all be judging. Judges from the United States include Eileen Verdieck, Shannon Armstrong and Steve Lieblang. If you donít happen to be an Arabian horse aficionado and these names mean little to you, you probably understand free and something to entertain the family just fine.

If youíre looking for a fun off-Strip activity that wonít break the bank this summer, head to Jazz in the Park. Celebrating its 25th year, the free concert series features the Las Vegas Academy Jazz Combo plus some famous friends.
The Las Vegas Academy Jazz Combo is well-suited to back up the headlining talent on this yearís roster as it is the recipient of more Signature Grammy awards than any other high school fine arts department in the country. The combo also took home top honors at the 2012 Reno Jazz Festival.

Elvis fans need to head over to Binionís soon to view some of the entertainer's prized possessions before they leave town. Vital Vegas and Las Vegas Advisor have discovered that the King is about to leave the building.
We all have that friend who claims to have a water bottle from Bono or a pen Katy Perry touched. (We all have friends like that, right? No? Just us?) In fact, this writer is in possession of an earplug from Benji Madden of Good Charlotte. I know, kind of gross, but whatís a diehard fan to do? And, when it comes to diehard fans, Elvisí are among the most loyal.
Between filling the arena with water for a jet ski show and having food trucks pull directly into the building for some ringside eats at MMA events, South Point has clearly cornered the market on unusual and interesting events in Las Vegas.
This Friday, March 7, South Point will add to its list of outside-the-box events with Calvary Days, featuring the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment. Starting at noon, guests can enjoy a special (and free!) meet-and-greet with the riders and their horses. Then at 1 p.m., the four-hoofed action begins as the Armored Cavalry Regiment showcases a variety of pistol demonstrations with weaponry used over different generations of warfare. Riders will also demonstrate how they use their primary piece of weaponry, the cavalry saber.
