As We See It

Thinking about country concerts, beer blowouts, and more

    • Twain is tops

      Shania Twain at Caesars Palace or Tim McGraw and Faith Hill at the Venetian? The vote is split, as both shows are great. My tip of the Stetson goes to Shania. —Don Chareunsy, contributing editor

    • And a beer ... in a tree

      Freakin’ Frog owner Adam Carmer’s reserve section blowout rocked! I was able to procure a bottle of Tactical Nuclear Penguin. Google it. Best. Holiday. Shopping. Ever. —Ken Miller, associate editor

    • Saved by the Cirque

      Zarkana: For such an impressive show, that’s an unimpressive lobby display. Looks like Zack Morris’ Kelly Kapowski cutout. —Rick Lax, staff writer

    • Poor choice of words

      A radio commercial for Tropicana’s Mob Attraction begins with “Museums are boring. Attractions are fun!” Thanks for that. Desperate, condescending advertising is my favorite kind, and this reminded me how much I want to go back to the fantastic Mob Museum Downtown. —Brock Radke, web & food editor

    • Rush hour

      My head tells me the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is silly and irrelevant, but my heart can’t help but rejoice at the news that Geddy, Alex and Neil are finally in. I’ll celebrate by listening to their five longest songs. That should keep me busy until 2013. —Spencer Patterson, managing editor
