Seven Nights

Entertaining options for a week of nonstop fun and excitement.

Thur. 16

It’s a special edition of Godskitchen, as the second half of Svast & Stellar—a.k.a. Dave Garcia—celebrates his birthday at Vanity. (At the Hard Rock Hotel, doors 10:30 p.m., $40 guys, $20 girls, local ladies free.) Meanwhile, L.A. Guns play across the casino floor, at Wasted Space (doors 9 p.m., $15 in advance, $20 at the door), and across town, Rio’s Crown Theater hosts a Bettie Page fashion show, featuring a performance by rockabilly rockers Omar & The StringpoppersDoors 9 p.m., $10 admission, $40 all-you-can-drink.

Fri. 17

Wrap up Mexican independence week at The Bank, as the club hosts the Most Beautiful Latinas in the World. The Bellagio hot spot has been searching for the loveliest Latina in the land, and tonight hosts the 12 finalists. Can you say, Olé? Doors 10:30 p.m., $30.

Sat. 18

Blush continues to celebrate its third birthday/anniversary in true Las Vegas style—with multiple parties. Tonight, “Cooler Than Me” singer Mike Posner pops by the Wynn ultralounge to give a special performance. (Doors 9 p.m., $30 for guys, $20 for ladies.) Meanwhile, another birthday party goes down at another ultralounge, this time on the south Strip. Hard Times of RJ Berger star Amber Lancaster blows out the candles at Tabú at MGM Grand, and former The Bachelor scandalite Vienna Girardi is heavily rumored (but not confirmed) to be there. Doors 10 p.m., $20 women, $40 men.

Sun. 19

Start your Sunday slowly but right, with a well-balanced and very boozy brunch at Nove Italiano. High Society hosts a TweetUp from 2-4 p.m. and gives those who RSVP before Sept. 17 two free drinks and 10 percent off the so-called “dayclub” menu. (At the Palms, 1-5 p.m., $30 all-you-can-eat brunch, to RSVP.) Afterward, keep the party—and summery spirit—going at The Bank, which hosts an Endless Summer Rally that gives the host who tonight brings the biggest group to the club a trip for 30 to San Diego via private jet. The contest is entry-by-invite-only, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be part of the prize-winning entourage. (At Bellagio, doors 10:30 p.m., $30 cover, free for industry and local ladies before midnight.) Alternatively, celebrate summer at XS, during the final Sunday night pool party of the season, with DJs Manufactured Superstars. The vibe is great and the crowd is stunning—and now, with 100 percent less Paris Hilton! At Encore, doors 10:30 p.m., $30 men, $20 women, local women free.

Mon. 20

Take a break from the club scene, and check out the view from the 23rd floor as Mandarin Bar hosts an evening with Rodney Lough Jr. The event is part of Mandarin Oriental’s monthly artist showcase, and this month highlights the master photographer’s vibrant images of wilderness and landscapes. Sip complimentary TY-KU cocktails and dazzle your friends by pointing out that Lough uses no color filters in his art. (Event 6-8 p.m., no cover.) For a higher-energy party, head to Jet, where Light Group marketing managers and career step-brothers, Mustafa “Moose” Abdi (Jet) and Kozmoe Alonzo (Haze) celebrate their birthdays at Abdi’s home-away-from-home at The Mirage. Doors 10:30 p.m., $30, locals free.

Tues. 21

Saved by the Bell may have been canceled in 1993, but that hasn’t stopped Mr. Belding, a.k.a. actor Dennis Haskins, from collecting appearance fees. Everyone’s favorite bumbling principal returns to Caesars Palace to host a back-to-school-themed bash at Pure. Drinking with the former principal isn’t quite as cool as sleeping with your former teacher or high school crush (assuming your teacher/crush was and still is hot), but what the heck—we need something to do until Tiffani-Amber Thiessen (“Kelly Kapowski”) and Elizabeth Berkley (“Jessie Spano”) turn to VIP hosting to pay the bills. Doors 10 p.m., $30 men, $20 women, free for all locals.

Wed. 22

Solidifying September’s status as Las Vegas’ official birthday month, Blue Martini throws another birthday bash as it turns 2. The popular Town Square lounge features an hour-long open bar sponsored by Van Gogh Blue vodka at 9 p.m. What’s more, ladies in cocktail dresses get the chance to win a trip for two to San Francisco, Patty Janura takes the stage at 8 p.m., and things really get going at 11:30 p.m., when DJ Jace One kicks things up. Coincidentally, 11:30 p.m. is also when men stop getting in for free (it’s $20 after that). If you’re sick of birthdays, head to the Palms, where Phoenix plays The Pearl. Concert 8 p.m., $29-$49, all-ages.

Doubtful that Wasted Space’s impending closure will receive quite the fanfare that our debuting clubs do, I figure now is as good a time as any to bid farewell to motocross legend Carey Hart’s petite club—sorry, anti-club—at the Hard Rock. That property has been on the tip of every wagging tongue recently, with speculation about both its nightlife program and the dining lineup (quiet talk is of a new Asian restaurant, Yi, possibly coming to the HRH tower).
