We’re just over a month out from the annual Ticket Summit, a chance to meet, mingle, and learn from a cadre of industry insiders from July 11-13. Since its only so often one gets a chance to jet off to Las Vegas for a few days, we figure there’s a decent shot a few of the folks planning a trip have padded a day or two on either side of the Tuesday-Thursday official events.

But what is there to do in Vegas in early July?

Fear not, we’ve combed through the glitzy itinerary for the 24-7 entertainment mecca, and come up with some options for you to check out before, during, and after the industry summit.

Also remember – event attendees can stay at the world-famous Venetian for just $179 per night if they book their room before Friday, June 16th.

Monday, July 10 – Eddie Griffin

The King’s Room at Rio Las Vegas | Find Tickets at TicketClub

With room for just 150, the King’s Room is a chance to catch a headlining comedian in an intimate space. Probably not for the faint of heart, given Griffin’s embracing of the uncensored nature of a typical Vegas act, but a good night out if you’re able to handle his brand of comedy.

Tuesday, July 11 – Penn & Teller

Penn & Teller Theater at Rio Las Vegas | Find Tickets at TicketClub

Magic acts and Las Vegas go way back, but Penn & Teller bring their unique brand to their theater at the Rio, showcasing both their talents in the medium, but also their ability to skewer the medium and bullshit artists of all kinds.
