Pint-Size Pianist

With eyes closed, 10-year-old piano prodigy Ethan Bortnick’s tiny fingers rapidly moved across the keys as he transitioned from Mozart to Justin Bieber during a sneak peek of his upcoming show at the Las Vegas Hilton.

The fifth-grader from Hollywood, Fla., who formally began playing the piano at age 4, shot to fame after his first appearance on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno in 2007 (he’s since returned three times). Now Bortnick is set to make history as the youngest solo performer to headline a Las Vegas show when he takes to the stage on July 22-23 ($39-49, age 16 and under half-price,

During his show, Bortnick will choose from a repertoire of more than 300 songs based on audience preference and will compose an original piece from an audience member’s ringtone. A portion of the show’s proceeds will benefit the Children’s Miracle Network.

Some bulk discounts are better than others

Strip entertainment packages promise to save you money, but you must be a smart shopper to make the most of these offers. The “3 for $54” deal, which MGM Resorts International launched in 2009, was recently expanded to include Adventuredome and CSI: The Experience. If you plan on seeing Bodies ... the Exhibition, Adventuredome and CSI, the package will save you about $30, but if the Shark Reef, New York-New York roller coaster and Secret Garden are your choice, it’s cheaper to buy admission individually.
