Hi there, I'm going to Vegas in Jan 09, just wondering if there is anything Shag still to see or do.

Thanks in advance

Okay, I'm going to answer my own question...

I just saw that Frankie's Tiki Room, which is just opening in LV, apparently has something Shag in it, what I don't know. I haven't been there yet, but plan on going in Jan!


Somehow I don't believe that the Shag With a Twist Multimedia Show is part of the nightly Fremont Street Experience, god that would be cool!



Maybe I can come up with another post for my thread!

I can testify that the Shag show they had as a part of the Fremont Street Experience was very cool -- I happened to catch it around April 07. I doubt they're still running it, since the show it was promoting has closed.

Actually, the Shag ad can be seen in my video:

I was shooting on continuous (2-3 frames per second) with my still camera as long as I could before the buffer filled. Later, I combined those stills into video on my computer. So basically, it's a piece of the Shag ad greatly accelerated. This video is called Las Vegas Motion Tests and it combines a number of scenes around Fremont and up on the strip using this technique.

Hi Gnomus, oh thank you so much for sharing your crazy and cool footage! So it's true, Shag was part of the Fremont Street Experience. How fricken' cool is that.
It's so much more fun then the lame ass sex stuff they put up there.

Oh well, it seems like moments of greatness disappear with a blink of an eye, you have to enjoy them while you can.
