Entertaining options for a week of nonstop fun and excitement.
The annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue was just released, causing countless bikini- and beer-loving men to proclaim, “I’ll drink to that!” And drink they will.
SI Swimsuit Launch Week has taken Vegas by storm, and the action will kick into high gear on Thursday when the model-infused party makes its way to Vanity at the Hard Rock. Easy on the eyes and the ears, Maroon 5 will perform for the invite-only crowd and things will continue at 1 a.m. with a not-quite-as-exclusive bash at Tao. This event comes in addition to the club’s weekly Worship Thursdays party, which welcomes gorgeous, goddess-like girls and is open to the public. Vanity at the Hard Rock Hotel: Private event. Tao at the Venetian: Doors at 10 p.m., $10 for ladies, $20 for men, all locals free.
There are three very different options for your Friday night: Tiger Woods’ alleged mistress, the ever-enterprising Jamie Jungers, at Pure; 90210’s AnnaLynne McCord at Eve; and the Beastie Boys’ master mixer, Mix Master Mike, at Rain. While revisiting Ms. Tiger jam could be fun (or funny, depending on how you look at it), and the 90210 set is always down for a good party, it’s hard to beat kickin’ it with the three MC’s DJ. Pure at Caesars Palace: Doors at 10 p.m., $30 for guys, $20 for girls. Eve in Crystals at CityCenter: Doors at 10:30 p.m., $20 for ladies, $30 for guys. Rain at the Palms: Doors at 11 p.m., local ladies free, $30 for guys and out-of-towners.
Two of the most loved and loathed celebrity couples will host parties tonight, meaning all you have to do is pick which one you like the most (or despise the least) and plan accordingly. Speidi (a.k.a. reality TV personalities Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, pictured) will be at Pure, while Hugh Hefner’s ex, Kendra Wilkinson, will join her hubby, Hank Baskett of the Super Bowl bridesmaid Indianapolis Colts, at Eve. Pure at Caesars Palace: Doors at 10 p.m., $30 for girls, $50 for guys. Eve in Crystals at CityCenter: Doors at 10:30 p.m., $20 for ladies, $30 for guys.
Take “Looking for Love in All the Wrong Places” to the next level on the most romantic/desperate night of the year and check out prospective valentines at the Bank or Vanity—or both, depending on your luck and/or ambition. And if Cupid’s arrow doesn’t strike, do not despair: You can still make the most of the night by taking bets on how many times the DJ will play Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies” before last call. The Bank at the Bellagio: Doors at 10:30 p.m., locals free. Vanity at the Hard Rock Hotel: Doors at 10 p.m., locals free, $30/$40 for girls/guys without local I.D.
Kick back alongside the people who made the weekend what it was at the city’s best Monday night industry party. Jet toasts the city’s best bar staff with two parties in one: DJ Karma in the main room and DJ Eddie McDonald in the smaller, secondary space. This week’s party also features a “Top Promoter” contest for all non-Light Group promos: He or she who brings the biggest crowd will go home with $5,000 in cash. Sure, the prize money will buy only a few bottles in the VIP, but it will also provide a full year’s worth of bragging rights. Jet at The Mirage: Doors at 10:30 p.m., industry and locals free, $30 for all others.
He’s gone from DJ to Fresh Prince to DJ again, yet DJ Jazzy Jeff never lost his street—or in this case, club—cred. The resilient and respected performer returns to town on Tuesday to play locals night at Moon. Moon at the Palms: Doors at 11 p.m., locals free, $20 for out-of-towners.
Head to the Hard Rock and mark midweek at Wasted Wednesday. Have a cold one (or several) at Wasted Space while Justin Hoffman and DJ Presto One set the soundtrack. Wasted Space at the Hard Rock Hotel: Doors at 9 p.m., all locals and industry free with supporting I.D.; otherwise, cover is $20.
