Bunnies take Vegas tonight, as Playboy takes over Sin City, from MGM Grand to Hefner’s home away from home, the Palms. First, Miss October 2010, Claire Sinclair, joins the sexy cast of Crazy Horse Paris at MGM Grand. The Playmate makes the most of her monthlong reign, and takes it off in three acts, twice a night, through Oct. 28. (Shows 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m., $50.50-$60.50, ages 18-plus, dark Oct. 26.) Later that night, Playboy founder Hugh Hefner hosts his go-to night spot, the Playboy Club. (At the Palms, doors 11 p.m., $20, local ladies free.) And over at the Hard Rock Hotel, Godskitchen at Vanity welcomes DJ Boris. 10:30 p.m., $40 guys, $20 girls, locals free.
If you’re planning to catch Vegas Seven’s The Tell, at the El Cortez, then you may as well plan to make a night of it by cruising on over to the Downtown Cocktail Room for the after-party. (111 Las Vegas Boulevard South, no cover.) If not (don’t worry, we won’t be mad … much), the Strip awaits you. Mr. Autotone himself, T-Pain (pictured), joins DJ Jazzy Jeff at the Palms as Rain’s Friday night resident, Z-Trip, takes a night off from the Revolution. (Doors 11 p.m., $30, local ladies free.) Over at Wynn, Blush hosts a DJ Hero 2 release party that gives away DJ Hero 2 party bundles for Xbox 360, Wii and PS3. Meanwhile, the game’s London-based remixer, DJ Tom Oke, joins resident Jace One. (Doors 9 p.m., $30 guys, $20 girls.) Self-proclaimed “self-made alcohol pseudo-expert,” Zane Lamprey of TV’s Three Sheets gets his beer-fueled song on at the Hard Rock Cafe on the Strip with his Zane Lamprey Sings the Booze Tour. Doors 8 p.m., show 9 p.m., $20-$25 ticketcts at TicketWeb.com.
Waste the afternoon away and pre-game for the Jimmy Buffett concert at MGM Grand as Margaritaville hosts a side-street pre-party of sorts, in the alley between O’Sheas Casino and Margaritaville. Unlike the concert, which will cost you $78-$228, admission to the street party is free—and there’s a Ferris wheel! There’s also live entertainment, and—who knows?—you might win tickets to the show later that night. (Street party 11 a.m.-6 p.m., concert at Grand Garden Arena at 8 p.m.) At the Palms, LA Riots and Second Sun perform during Perfecto following an opening set by Zen Freeman. At Rain, doors 11 p.m., $30, local ladies free.
Bid the weekendlong Mondo Lounge event adieu as Bachelor Pad Magazine presents a Last Call closing night cocktail party celebrating classy, classic Vegas with burlesque performances by Ruby Joule, Ruby Champagne (pictured), Cha Cha Velour and more. (At Beauty Bar, 517 E. Fremont St., $5, free with event wristband.) At the Bank, Jack Colton hands out the hardware during JackColton.com’s annual Host Awards. VIP hosts will be honored in categories, including Most Likely to Steal Your Customer and Easiest on the Eyes. At Bellagio, doors 10:30 p.m., $30, locals and industry free.
Kick off the workweek with a night of amped-up, sexed-up football action at Playboy Club, which hosts its second Monday Night Football viewing party. Hang with the bunnies and your buddies and watch as the New York Giants take on the Dallas Cowboys. There will be Miller beer specials and upscale bar food like Nove Italiano’s thin-crust pizzas for $7. And if your betting can’t be confined to the casino sports book, you can always sneak in some blackjack or roulette in between plays. At the Palms, 5-8 p.m., no cover.
In Vegas, birthdays are celebrated for a month, and holidays last a week. And Halloween is no exception. The festivities begin tonight as J-Roc hosts his annual J-Roc-O-Ween party during a special installment of Bang! at Moon, giving away $5,000 in cash and prizes for the best costumes. (Doors 11 p.m., $20, local ladies free.) Blush also gives away a cool $5,000 tonight, during its Vampires and Villains-themed contest. At Wynn, doors 9 p.m., open ladies champagne bar 11 p.m.-midnight, $30 cover, local ladies and industry members free.
TheDirty.com is known for being crass, so it’s somewhat fitting that the trash-talking website’s HallowEve event at Eve asks partiers to dress like their favorite dead rock star. If you fear the wrath of Jim Morrison’s ghost, you can always go dressed as a zombie groupie. (At Crystals, doors 10:30 p.m., $20 girls, $30 guys, local ladies free.) At Revolution Lounge, PictureHealing.com hosts a masquerade benefit in support of Music Saves Lives featuring Neon Trees (pictured). At the Mirage, doors 10 p.m., $50, tickets at WantTickets.com.
