May 29, 2009, Newsletter Issue #212: Who was Liberace?

Tip of the Week

If you don't know who Liberace was, then you probably won't appreciate the kitschy Las Vegas museum dedicated in his honor. Liberace was one of the last real showmen of the stage. An excellent pianist, he fabbed up his act with feathers, rhinestones (LOTS of rhinestones), furs, candelabras, and oh, a piano or two or three. Liberace was over the top and people loved him for it. They loved him so much they packed his Las Vegas shows and now look forward to visiting the Las Vegas museum that houses so much of his collection of furs, cars, pianos, and of course, rhinestones. Liberace died in 1987, but he lives on in this museum that locals say is simply a "must see." Admission is $12.50 per person * $8.50 for students and seniors, * Under 10 free. * Open Mon.-Sat. 10am-5pm * Sun. 1-5pm.
