We all know the 2014 Convention in Las Vegas will be a bangeroo of all things barbershop. We all know that Las Vegas is, well, LAS GOSH-DARN VEGAS, with an infinite number of indulgences, shows, games, and so on.
But while you're planning your trip, you might also consider a few not-so-evident activities, unearthed by The Wall Street Journal:
Earth-Moving Experience // Dig This. I held the best birthday party of my life at this 5-acre sandbox for adults. You dig holes and fill them in with real construction equipment.

He'll fool you with fantastically original tricks using rain ponchos and Fig Newtons and tents. Take the kids. Take the grandparents. Take the smart-ass teens. mackingshow.com National Atomic Testing Museum.
