Vegas primer for UA game: Enjoy piano bar, 'Absinthe'

At the exact moment the UA kicks off tonight against UNLV, legendary comic Jerry Seinfield will be taking the stage for a 7:30 performance at Caesars Palace.

Seinfield also performed Friday in Las Vegas, but leaves after tonight.

We checked in with Taylor Bern, the UNLV beat writer for the Las Vegas Sun, and he gave us three Vegas must-sees while you’re in Sin City.

We have something for everyone here. Looking for a quick bite off The Strip before the game? We have you covered. A late-night spot to sing some karaoke? No problem.

Here are our best bets:

1. Don’t Tell Mama. Located off The Strip at 517 Fremont Street is Don’t Tell Mama, and it’s not your typical piano bar. The karaoke spot has one piano — and no screen to tell you the words. Singers must know the lyrics by heart.

“You will usually be amazed at how good the people are,” Bern said. “The bartenders and waiters are amazing, too. I’ve never had a bad time there.”

2. Zaba’s Mexican Grill. Our tour guide tells us this casual spot is like Chipotle, only better. Grab a bite before the UA plays tonight.

There are six locations throughout the city. We’ll let you look them up. Make sure you try the sweet potatoes.

3. “Absinthe” at Caesars Palace. Located in a tent outside the casino, the show has been described by The New York Times as “Cirque du Soleil as channeled through ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show.’”

If you’re easily offended, this isn’t for you. There are shows at 8 and 10 tonight and Sunday night.
