Many comments about the fragrance that permeates the Flamingo, a tropical pina colada scent, both positive and negative. One comment stands out "Its a soft, not overpowering smell. It's very pleasant and as soon as you walk in off the street it makes you feel like you're on holidays"
As with many of the older strip properties, there is a wide range in the quality of rooms at the Flamingo. The recently updated rooms, designated GO rooms, have all the upgraded electronics you'd expect from 42" flat panel TVs to Denon DVD/CD players and electric operated drapes. The GO bathrooms have spa shower stalls, TV built into the mirror, and color light treatments. The standard rooms are less jazzy, but still decent. The standard rooms are about 350 feet.
Donnie and Marie
The Flamingo 750 seat showroom is an appropriately intimate venue for the Donnie and Marie. The 90 minute show features all their hits, plus many cover songs, and all their corny repartee that their fans would expect to see. The show has been generally well received, and their contract has been extended through October 2012. More, please.
George Wallace presents a comedy act that is seemingly less scripted than most. He adjusts his jokes to each nights audience.
Afternoon, 4pm, Magic show, with a bit of comedy thrown in. The show features stage magic, not much sleight of hand talent on display. This show relies more on razzle-dazzle than real talent, the opposite is true of Mac King's afternoon Magic show at Harrahs. More, please.
An insult comedian, with far less talent than Don Rickles in his prime, and a really foul mouth.
Topless Revue performed in an appropriately intimate show room with 180 seats. Comics Nancy Ryan and James Bean entertain the audience between show numbers.
