Dining in Vegas: Restaurant etiquette question!

I'm going to dine in Vegas and I'm trying to coordinate going to Vegas shows but still have grand tasting menus at some restaurants.

The question is, is it proper to order an approximately 5-course menu that will likely last about 2 hours at a time of 9:30pm when the restaurant closes at 10:30? How do things like that work? That's what I'd like to do when I eat at Twist (YES!).

Is there usually a cutoff time in which restaurants won't be serving grande tasting menus? I'm a chef myself, so I know what it's like when people order lots of food 5 minutes before closing time. But at the same time, I'm not working at a place like Joel Robuchon. I'm sure I could walk in and order the 4-hour tasting menu at 9:00, but I don't want my food being cooked by a pissed off kitchen eiither. Or is it all good since this IS a 3-star michelin place and you ARE paying $500 pp for a meal?
