Anyone who loves Vegas needs to at least go browse the wares for sale at KNPR's online auction, which closes up at noon PT on Saturday. Yes, there's that awesome lunch at Wynn with me and Miles -- currently the second highest bid-on item among the lunches-with behind KVBC owner Jim Rogers and KVBC entertainment queen Alicia Jacobs -- but there's also some remarkable offers of tourist-centric interest.

Here are some examples, reflecting the present high bid as I type right now:

* Dinner with Vegas food critics John Curtas and Max Jacobson: $80
* $50 Downtown Cocktail Room gift card: $31
* $350 Wynn shopping certificate: $175
* Dinner for 4 at Nove and VIP admission to Playboy Club or Moon w/bottle of vodka: $401
* Two Penn & Teller tickets: $50
* Two Peepshow tickets: $53
* Two Rita Rudner tickets: $60
* 1 Night + 2 show tickets at Caesars: $250
* Two Santana tickets: $90
* One night and dinner for 2 at the steakhouse at Flamingo: $120
* Two passes for the Flamingo buffet: $22
* Two passes for the Paris buffet: $36
* $50 gift certificate at Aquaknox at Venetian: $37
* $100 gift certificate for the Sterling Brunch: $70
* $100 gift card for Rao's or any Light Group eatery: $76

Obviously, there's a lot more including tickets to The Lion King, Jubilee!, Donny Clay, Donny and Marie, Jersey Boys, Cher, Phantom, O, Ka, Viva Elvis, Love, Mystere, Terry Fator, George Wallace, Blue Man Group, Lance Burton, Criss Angel Believe, Frank Caliendo and Thunder From Down Under, Chippendales, Zumanity and Le Reve.

Go. Now. Check it out. They're working with NPR stations in CA, AZ and Washington as well, so there's all sorts of travel-related deals to be had in those places as well. All the money goes to superb and vital radio programming.

Thanks for the promotion Steve! One of my favorites you didn't mention was the personal tour of the Hard Rock memorabilia with curator Warwick Stone. Warwick bids on the HR items and is a fascinating character with a great history of his own. Check it out. (More shout outs for Steve and Miles on air at News 88.9 KNPR in the morning)

I would pay to AVOID having a meal with all of the people on that list.

Thanks for the referral. I didn't know the auction was happening, and I was a winner on two of them. You guys got too pricey.

You guys have great fans. Three hundred seventy clams to have dinner with you guys? Outstanding!
