Drink and a Show

Rock & Rita’s at Circus Circus hosted “Flair for the Cure” on Aug. 18. Co-sponsored by the American Cancer Society’s Young Professionals Against Cancer and some of the world’s top flair bartenders, the event raised $6,387. Nearly a dozen bartenders took the stage to flip, spin and juggle while creating their fantasy drinks, which were then auctioned off, with other treasures, for the charity.

The colors may be stark, but the Black & White Party is never boring. Instead, this major fundraiser for Aid for AIDS of Nevada (AFAN) remains—even after 24 years—one of the hottest events on the Las Vegas social calendar. And the 2010 version (9 p.m. Aug. 21 at The Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel, $35, afanlv.org) looks to be another spectacle of fashion and frolicking. From DJs to bankers to self-described “winos,” partygoers can expect to see the unexpected, with a diverse array of characters coming out to support one of the city’s most beloved organizations.
