GOT a little more exciting, thanks to a variety of variety
acts that have debuted at the Shops in Desert Passage, located next
to the Aladdin. Joe Krathwohl, known as the Birdman of Las Vegas,
Lilia, a contortionist, and Spirit, an acrobatic duo, are joined by
other acts such as Duality, a body-balancing acrobatic act, and
Jason Bird, who combines magic and comedy, to entertain shoppers
each hour from 1:15 p.m. until 8:15 p.m. Thursday through Monday on
the main stage near the V Theater. Solo pianists also are located
throughout the mall, tickling the ivories every hour on the half
hour from 1:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Sunday. And from
noon to 9 p.m. seven days a week, customer service ambassadors,
also known as Segway hosts, can be seen zipping around the mall on
their electric transportation devices offering help or information
to shoppers, showcasing merchant products and, on occasion, joining
in the variety acts.
