The Best Things to Do in Las Vegas During March 2018

A new restaurant, shows, attractions and more make Las Vegas even more intriguing.

A great burger restaurant with insane milkshakes, a chichi new cocktail lounge, a glow-in-the-dark mini golf attraction and two new shows are just some of the fresh things to do in town.  Here's a look at five worthy of a visit. 

Insane Shakes 

Head into an American luncheonette with hip hop overtones at Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer. Try the Greg Norman burger with wagyu beef, house buttermilk-dill, blue cheese and arugula, named for the golfer, or one of the restaurant’s CrazyShake milkshakes in a flavor such as cotton candy, a strawberry shake with a blue and pink pearl chocolate rim, a pink lollipop, rock candy, whipped cream and cotton candy. Feeling very Vegas? Add liquor to that shake. 11 am-midnight, Su-Th; 11 am-2 am, F-Sa. The Venetian, 702.414.2337

The Twilight Zone

Mini golf gets a “Twilight Zone” twist at the newest Monster Mini Golf attraction. The space features a 10,000-square-foot, 18-hole mini golf course all in blacklight. Bonus: an arcade, bowling, a gift shop and a Syfy wedding chapel. Prices start at $11.95 for mini golf. Bally’s, 702.333.2121

Champagne, Please

Rosina showcases a world-class cocktail experience featuring meticulous attention to detail, as most classics are, from the setting to the drinks. Rosina’s old-school allure meshes with its Art Deco ­air, all in this 65-seat cocktail sanctuary complete with shimmering shades of black, pearl, gold and rich burgundy. Pro tip: Use the Champagne call button to simply top off your flute with the push of a button. Open 5 pm-3 am daily. Palazzo, 702.607.1945

The Heat Is On

Fiery magical acts take the stage with “Inferno,” the new display of pyrotechnics, fire stunts and spectacular illusions. European illusionist Joe Labero and The Fuel Girls, the pyro and aerial group, blend death-defying stunts and jaw-dropping illusions in Inferno. W-Su, 9:30 pm. Tickets start at $49. Paris, 702.777.2782

A Trip to Mars 

Consider Opium a close encounter with a spaceship of fools. The creators of “Absinthe” bring this new show that includes a pack of comedians, some raunchy crooners and a martini or three. Tickets are $79-$129. 8 pm, Tu, Th, Sa-Su. Cosmopolitan, 702.698.7778
