On the Scene with Brock Radke: Miss Behave Gameshow, Elizabeth Blau and more
Come On Down
There are plenty of shows that use audience participation as a key ingredient in the fun. The Miss Behave Gameshow depends on it in the most universal way.
Since taking over the Back Room at Bally’s Las Vegas this year, the sparkly and indefatigable Miss Behave and her fabulously flexible, mustachioed sidekick Tiffany have been hosting the fastest, funniest, most freewheeling game show to ever hit the Strip—and you and your friends are the contestants. You’ll use your cell phone to compete, garner points by singing, shouting and jumping onstage and whether your team wins or loses, you’ll leave with stories to share and your favorite new Vegas selfies.
All The Vegas: Elizabeth Blau
“Off (the Strip) is what has legitimized us as a great restaurant city. What the Strip hotels enable us to do is on a different level. When we did Honey Salt six years ago, there was not much out there. It’s a challenge now for us restaurateurs because there are so many great places. Over time we’ve had to adjust to the neighborhood a bit, which is just natural as you get to know your customers, but the approach I think is pretty much the same. The only difference is the pricing, which has to be much more friendly for locals.
