Locals Only: See the Sirens of TI before the revue goes away until Dec. 30

It’s the sexiest shipwreck ever seen on the Strip.

But if you haven’t made it to the Sirens of TI, or just haven’t been in a while, you have only a few days left to revel in the show’s patented blend of song, dance, fireworks and that guy dressed like a parrot.

It’s not going the way of the Dunes or the Sands. But the sexy pirate show is shutting down Monday through Dec. 30 for maintenance and for construction on retail space at Treasure Island, 3300 Las Vegas Blvd. South.

See the free show while you can, weather permitting, at 7, 8:30, 10 and 11:30 p.m.


For all you guys who are comfortable crying at the movies, the 20th anniversary of “Rudy” is being celebrated Thursday night at Brenden Theatres at the Palms, 4321 W. Flamingo Road.

Mark Giovi

Does Mark Giovi know “Never Can Say Goodbye”?
