VISITORS to the Shops in Desert Passage at
the Aladdin Hotel and Casino can vie to win tickets to Fab Four
Mania! by trying to get the Buckingham guard in front of the V
Theater to crack a smile or register another reaction, such as
flinching, smirking or coughing. Baffle the Buckingham Guard can be
played from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays -- and
believe it or not, there are rules. Each contestant is given 10
seconds to perform whatever antics, jokes or actions he believes
will get the guard to let down his guard. Once a person is awarded
a show ticket, he cannot compete again. A V Theater representative
will be on hand to judge winners and award them with a ticket
voucher. For the safety of the guard, any physical contact is
prohibited and will result in immediate
SHOPS in Desert Passage, meanwhile, will add a Greek
restaurant to the menu of eateries this fall. Taverna Opa, slated

It is the first restaurant of its kind in Las Vegas; other
franchises are located in Florida and Chicago. For more
