I can’t stand food “holidays.” National Pasta Day. World Cupcake Awareness Month. Leek Week. No, I don’t want to buy into those thinly disguised commercial efforts (Note: Only one of those was real, but you get the idea.) The third annual Global Champagne Day, however, is a cause I can get behind! Oct. 28 will sing with pops, hisses and the ecstatic clinking of glasses the whole world over. To get in on the bubbly action, just follow @ChampagneJayne, and then, on the big day, drink up, Buttercup! (Champagne from Champagne, France, please …) Then be sure to Tweet, Instagram, Facebook and Foursquare all about it, tagging your effervescent moments #ChampagneDay12. Remember: Pictures, or it didn’t happen!
A Peek at Life Is Beautiful 2017
Gorillaz are coming to Las Vegas for the first time ever. 2016’s Grammy winner for best new artist, Chance the Rapper, will return. English rockers Muse will bring their dizzying live show to the streets of Downtown. And that’s just the top of an eclectic bill that features more than 70 acts, along with comedy, interactive art installations, a group art exhibit featuring the work of Mark Ryden, Tara McPherson and Shepard Fairey and much more. Last year saw more than 137,000 attendees trod the festival footprint. Who’s ready for more?
