A Divine Intervention from the Dairy Gods
If you missed commemorating Bette Midler’s 100th performance of the “The Showgirl Must Go On”, not to worry there’s a decadent way to make up for it. Miss Midler’s 100th show may have been June 7th, but you can still celebrate all-things-Bette with “The Divine Sundae” at sweet shop and eatery Serendipity 3 at Caesars Palace.
Created by one of Bette’s adoring fans in honor of her recent milestone, this sundae was born from a contest on Facebook, which earned the winner two free tickets to the show, as well as the addition of her ice cream creation on the Serendipity 3 menu. The sundae features strawberry and vanilla ice cream in addition to an array of fruit that honors Bette’s Hawaiian heritage. We haven’t had a chance to try it yet, but we understand it’s Truly Scrumptious.
If you haven’t seen the show yet you are in for more than just a sweet treat because not only does the Divine Miss M. sing everything from “The Rose” to “The Wind Beneath My Wings”, but she also prances the stage offering a big dose of her bawdy personality and even bawdier jokes. For those who aren’t in it for just dessert, you can take advantage of special 100th show pricing of $100 rear orchestra tickets (normally priced at $190) that runs now through June 26 (offer dates subject to availability).
Finally, if want to make a full-blown evening of it, Bradley Ogden restaurant inside Caesars Palace is offering show-goers a chance to indulge in a three-course spring prix-fix dinner menu through the entire month of June. Diners can choose from decadent choices for the first and main courses such as the twice baked Maytag blue cheese soufflé or the pan roasted sturgeon as well as tasty dessert options, such as the banana upside-down cake or black forest mousse. Guests who purchase this package will also get to see “The Showgirl Must Go On” in mezzanine seating, all for $100 plus tax and fees ($135 per person total).
For tickets, call 1-877-7BETTEM (723-8836) or log onto Ticketmaster.com keyword “100Bette”. Tickets may also be purchased in person at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace Box Office, which is open daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
