Vegas Weekender: Sunday brunch with style

This Easter weekend in Vegas is filled with inspiring shows, the best brunches and a few late-night performances. See a show where the stage is a 27-foot pool of water. Take a bite out of a brunch featuring twisted food and sip on some bubbly while a singer goes “Bottoms Up.”

From an aqua-intensive show to an Easter egg-stravaganza, it’s all happening this weekend in Vegas.


From creator Franco Dragone, “Le Rêve,” French for the dream, is a fantastic show filled with talented gymnasts and aerialists, beautiful scenery and artistic costumes. The circular showroom has 1,608 stadium-style seats centered around a 27-foot deep pool. The performers are both in and out of the water, but one highlight of the show are the synchronized swimmers. Show times are 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Friday, April 22 – Sunday, April 24. Tickets start at $108.90.
