Seven Nights

Entertaining options for a week of nonstop fun and excitement.

Thur. 18

Head down to the Venetian and check out St. Louis rapper (and occasional actor) Chingy as he makes a special appearance at Tao. Though his actual birthday is March 9, he celebrates the big three-oh during Worship Thursdays. Doors at 10 p.m., $20 for guys, $10 for ladies, all locals free.

Fri. 19

Further your X-rated education and browse the Erotic Heritage Museum’s 17,000 square feet of naughty and provocative exhibitions—for free. The tribute to all things adult waives admission fees between 5 and 7 p.m., and sexologist Susan Kaye, a.k.a. Goddess Lily, teaches a Tantra for Lovers class at 7 p.m. The museum’s current exhibition, Sex on the Streets, takes a look at erotic graffiti and public art while permanent installations such as the Peep Arcades, the extended biography of Hustler founder and First Amendment challenger Larry Flynt, and toilet humor (which is located in the restrooms, of course) also await. 3275 Industrial Road.

Open 3 p.m.-midnight, free from 5-7 p.m., $10 for locals/students/military, $15 for all others before/after. 369-6442.

Sat. 20

The hot songbird next door is all grown up and brings Ultraviolet to LAX. Kid Sister does double duty as she hosts and performs at the Luxor hotspot while DJ Casanova spins. At Luxor.

Doors at 10 p.m., $40 for men $20 for women.

Sun. 21

Check out the newest pool party destination in town, Liquid at Aria. CityCenter’s “modern day tropical retreat” opens March 18 and boasts both a full food menu and a 1,200-square-foot pool. While there’s nothing big on the books for this weekend’s soft season-opener, enjoy the relative peace and quiet while it lasts: Tiësto is set to play the pool’s official opening day, April 8. 11 a.m.-6 p.m., $10 for women, $20 for men.

Mon. 22

Kick off the workweek with the night’s hottest industry night as DJs Neva and Que entertain the masses at Jet. At The Mirage. Doors at 10:30 p.m., industry and locals free, $30 for all others. If the weekend has left you weary, opt for a more relaxed evening of entertainment at Mandalay Bay. House of Blues hosts Blues Mondays, which starts and ends early, meaning you might actually make it home at a reasonable hour and, therefore, make it to work on time the next morning. 8-11:30 p.m., free, all ages.

Tues. 23

Join multitasking DJ/fashion designer Steve Aoki as he returns to spin a special set at Blush. While Aoki serves as the main event, resident DJ Mighty Mi will still be on hand to play industry night.

At Wynn. Doors at 9 p.m., free for locals, $30 for all others.

Wed. 24

See a whole different side of your neighbors—and their backsides—at Stripped at the Onyx Theatre. The film follows documentary photographer Greg Friedler as he casts and creates the fourth and final chapter of his Naked picture- book series, then catches up with 40 of the totally exposed characters a year after their skin-baring photo shoots.

8 p.m. March 24 and 31, $10,
