STRIP TIPS: Blue Man Group offering deals

Wrap up January, 2012 in a Vegas-y way by seeing a show, eating some dim sum or playing a few poker hands. Next week, look for a few Super Bowl suggestions.

Blue Man specials

Blue Man Group is offering a couple of great deals. Through March 18, locals can buy one ticket and get one free by flashing their Nevada ID at any box office in the Palazzo or Venetian and saying the secret password: "LOC241." Visit blueman.com/vegaslocal for more information. Football fans wearing logoed merchandise for one of the two teams meeting in the Super Bowl can also get in on the Blue Man Group action. Mention the game code "Game46" at the box office between Jan. 30 through Feb. 6 and tickets to the 10 p.m. showings will cost $46, in honor of the Big Game’s 46th anniversary. Regular prices range from $59 to $160 so both promotions are great deals. Call 414-9001.

Dragon dance

If you’re still in the Chinese New Year celebration mode, check out the festivities at Wynn Las Vegas. A traditional dragon and lion dance ceremony is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. today. It will start in the south valet and parade its way through Wynn and Encore. And through Saturday, Wing Lei is offering a dim sum brunch from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for $58.88 per person. Traditional dim sum dishes will be offered, including barbecue pork buns, lotus leaf sticky rice and shrimp dumplings. Call 248-3463 for reservations.

Poker time

If you need a poker fix, head down to Caesars Palace this weekend. The World Series of Poker Circuit wraps up 12 days of tournaments Monday. You may be able to get into one of the cash games or the No-Limit Hold’em tournaments taking place daily. Buy-ins start at $70 for the 9 a.m. games, $110 for the 7 p.m. games and $85 for the 10 p.m. games. Or, just be a spectator when the $1,600 buy-in Main Event Championship kicks off today. Whatever your poker tastes, it is likely something going on will appeal to you. For the remaining schedule of events, check out wsop.com.

Question

What happens to the flowers that are used in Bellagio’s conservatory display?

A reader called a few weeks ago, upset over the fact that cut flowers die. He was particularly concerned about the fate of the conservatory’s flowers, which he believed were replaced en masse every day.

That’s not the case, according to the conservatory’s executive director of horticulture, Andy Garcia.

While wilting or dying flowers in the floral displays are replaced by fresh ones as needed, the leftovers hardly go to waste.

"Our horticulture staff works extremely hard to envision and implement spectacular floral displays, and we work equally hard to determine ways to recycle and reuse these materials. As a result of that effort, I am pleased to say nearly 100 percent of our exhibits reappear as mulch either within the conservatory or the surrounding grounds of Bellagio."

So, don’t weep for the flowers.
