Entertaining options for a week of nonstop fun and excitement.
The one and only Mr. Freeze is at Revolution to present the I Am Hip Hop grand finals, where one b-boy or b-girl will be crowned the greatest of all time. Sure, the title may sound a bit much—but it’s Mr. Freeze, and what he says, goes. (At The Mirage, doors at 10 p.m., $20 cover, locals free.) Meanwhile Gabe Saporta of Cobra Starship is at Aria to perform as part of industry night at Haze (doors at 11 p.m., $40 for men and $20 for women, industry free with supporting ID), and retro-themed roller skating continues its sweep of the city and comes to Sante Fe Station. The best part: The costumes at Boot, Scoot and Boogie are almost as old-school as the prices. It costs $2 to get in, $5 to rent skates, and there are $2 drink specials all night long. Or try your luck with the mechanical bull—for free! Doors at 8 p.m.
It’s Christmas Eve in July, as the secret Santas at Eve present Eva’s Gifting Suite. The event gives 25 local ladies complementary and unlimited one-Month memberships to Tan Factory, while 100 others receive one-time tan passes. (At Crystals, doors at 10:30 p.m., $30 for men, $20 for women.) If you get tired as the night goes on, don’t go home—head to Gold, where DJs OB-One and Five join resident DJ David Christian to play after-hours sets, starting at 2 a.m. At Aria, $40 cover.
Canadian-born pin-up Playmate Pamela Anderson was born on Canada Day—that’s July 1, kiddies—but she celebrates her 43rd year today, with not one party, but two! The blond bombshell starts things off at Tao Beach, where DJ Jason Lema sets the soundtrack, then moves things indoors, to Tao proper, later that night. DJ Vice will be in the booth, so the party promises to sound as good as Anderson looks. Or did, back in her Baywatch days. (Tao Beach doors at 10 a.m., $20 for men, free for locals and all ladies; Tao doors at 10:30 p.m., $40 for men, $20 for women, free for local ladies.) Kathy Griffin is also in town this weekend, and brings her self-deprecating stand-up to the Colosseum at Caesars Palace. 8 p.m., $49.50-$85, 866-1400.
Slather on the SPF and prepare to party! Wet Republic has Sander Kleinenberg and Ferry Corsten (at MGM Grand, doors at 11 a.m., $50 for guys, $20 for girls), while DJ Loczi is at Liquid. (At Aria, doors at 11 a.m., $20 for guys, $10 for girls.) Or just keep things simple and spend the entire day at the Hard Rock Hotel, starting at Rehab, where resident DJs Swift and Ikon do their thing (doors at 11 a.m., $40 for men, $20 for women), then towel off and clean up before heading to Vanity, where DJs Presto One and Five play the ever-popular Sin on Sunday and local ladies drink free champagne until midnight. Doors at 11 p.m., $40 for men, $20 for women, free for locals.
Recover from the weekend that was by the pool at Encore Beach Club, as the city’s newest adults-only pool destination marks Monday with its weekly industry event. DJs Freddy B and Jace One set the sounds for the beach party, and locals get to have some fun in the Sun, no cover charge required. Noon-7 p.m., $50/$40 for men/women with out-of-state ID.
It’s another bang-up night at the Palms, as DJ Jazzy Jeff returns for another installation of Bang! The night gets under way at Moon at 10 p.m., and the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air alum will take to the tables about 11 p.m. ($20 cover, local ladies free.) Another option for your Tuesday night party awaits at Pure, where DJ Shift plays industry night. At Caesars Palace, doors at 10 p.m., $30 for men, $20 for women, free for locals.
Wednesday night is all about the numbers, and this week DJ Adam 12 joins DJ 88 and plays a tandem-style set during Snitch at Ghostbar. The guest DJ, better known as Adam Bravin of She Wants Revenge, trades his bass to take his place at the 1s and 2s alongside Las Vegas’ own Bree Cohen. (At the Palms, doors at 10 p.m., $20 cover, local ladies free.) Another option: Head to Blush for House Wednesdays, where DJs Steve Walker and Brett Rubin spin and ladies drink free champagne from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. P. Diddy will also be in the house, in spirit, with specials and tastings of Puffy’s vodka, Ciroc, all night long. At Wynn, doors at 9 p.m., $40 for men, $30 for women.
