Nightlife’s Golden Boy

Las Vegas’ crowned king of the LGBT party, Eduardo Cordova, has a knack for placing chic, high-end LGBT events in mainstream (non-gay) venues. His latest efforts manifested May 27, when he brought Tempted Thursdays to Gold Lounge at Aria.

The temptation begins every Thursday, as Adam and Eve meet guests at the door. Showcasing a forbidden fruit theme, Tempted Thursdays feature resident DJ Roger Gangi and last a whopping eight hours, from 8 p.m.-4 a.m.

The long, late night accommodates a crowd of professional networkers early in the evening, then a high-flying party crowd as the night goes on.

“I am trying something new, and just like all my events, they are all different from one other and all have something attractive,” Cordova says.

The event kicks off the LGBT weekend in Las Vegas, and is followed by two more parties that come to us courtesy of Cordova: Heaven at Bare on Saturdays and The Closet Sundays at Revolution. That all three venues are part of the Light Group nightlife/lifestyle empire is a tribute Cordova’s relationship with the brand—and his place within the LGBT nightlife community.

Before I dive into the abyss of superficiality that surrounds the 72 hours of madness known as Memorial Day weekend in Las Vegas, allow me to commemorate here the men and women who have given their lives for our country, and commend those who continue to keep our shores secure. It is important to remember why there’s no work on Monday. Or why the barons of this city’s nightlife import exciting talent. And why Southwest Airlines is booked solid. Though for The Captains of Industry, it simply means our crème loafers are acceptable again, at least until Labor Day.
