Celestia may be one of the best bargains in Las Vegas right now.

Atomic Saloon Show is the lastest (and maybe greatest) treat from Spiegelworld, the team that brought you Absinthe and Opium. Set in a wild west brothel overseen by the villainous madame "Boozy Skunkton," Atomic Saloon Show invites you to a bottle-smashing bar brawl that will have you blushing, laughing and questioning your own powers of sight. To tell you any more might spoil the surprises, but don't miss this nuclear blast of high-powered fun.

Top Concert: Bronx Wanderers at Harrah's ($59)
Bronx Wanderers is a family band with a penchant for the music of the Four Seasons, Stray Cats, the Beatles, and Neil Diamond. Their expanding popularity has necessitated moving into ever-larger theaters. Now featured at Harrah's main showroom, the multi-talented troupe is overseen by patriarch Vinny Adinolfi. Dad's recording industry background provides the backdrop for a marvelous collection of hits both classic and current. A must-see production that touches the heart, the Bronx Wanderers will lift you higher and send your soul dancing into the streets.

Top Sexy Revue: Chippendales at Rio ($38), Fantasy at Luxor ($43)
We'll split this category right down the middle and give both Chippendales and Fantasy our top rating. The daring pair of skin-baring revues is considered to be the gold standard in their class of provocative entertainment. Delivering equal parts titillation, elegance, style, and sass, the one-two punch of Chippendales and Fantasy is all you'll need to satisfy your thirst for sexy guys or girls. It's worth mentioning that both genders are equally welcome at these shows, so don't leave your other half behind...unless that's part of your plan.
