The Phantom of the Opera has found his new lair at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas. From the moment you check in, you can hear the score of the longest running musical being piped through the hotel lobby. There is even a gift shop (located near the Casino) featuring Phantom items for Phantom Phans like moi.

While at the Venetian, there is another special attraction you should not miss, and her name is Miss Roxy MCPherson. Roxy, who is the talented niece of Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis, Jr. (Fifth Dimension) has been their Mistress of Ceremonies for many years, and runs all the slot and video poker tournaments. Her personality, positive attitude, and professionalism are infectious. Even if you don't win - you are a winner if you meet Roxy. Since we recently celebrated July 4th, I thought this photo of her as Miss Liberty was appropriate. What better way to celebrate our Nation's Birthday than a visit to the Phantom and Miss Liberty at the same time?
